When small men throw tantrums the effects ricochet across the planet. I’m going to be real, I felt completely helpless today, so I did what I normally do when I feel helpless. I consulted the tarot.
Why Did Putin attack Ukraine? — Death

Something may be causing Putin to panic and create conflict within him. There is separation, trust issues, disconnection, and a lack of accountability surrounding this card. It feels as though there is something about his actions that are not being made visible to the public.
What are Putin’s motives? — seven of pentacles
His motives appear to be related to the propagation of money, power, and influence. He may believe that he is making a decision that may be hard for him or those around him to accept, he believes that Russia will reap the rewards of this venture at a later date.
What will the final outcome be? — The Empress R
The outcome of his actions will be disharmony, unstable ground, a lack of growth, and a lack of abundance. This could also suggest that his vision will be prematurely ended and that there may be a consequence to Mother Earth due to his carelessness.
