“At least cars were better than horses. The internal combustion engine had been a godse- a blessi- a windfall for Crowley. The only horses he could be seen riding on business, in the old days, were big black jobs with eyes like flames and hooves that struck sparks. That was a de rigueur for demons. Usually, Crowley fell off. He wasn’t much good with animals.” - Good Omens, page 57

Old-time Tarot Meanings My Grandma Taught Me

The Star is a bad card.

It says, “No, this is nothing but wishful thinking.” It represents endless hoping, with nothing ever happening.

The Nine of Wands is victory.

This man never grew complacent after his past triumph. Such vigilance will ensure he also wins the next battle.

The Ten of Wands is abundance.

That man is not burdened. He is carrying his harvest home. It is heavy, but he is happy.

The Three of Pentacles is achievement.

A stone mason from a humble background has managed to earn the respect of both Church and State.

The Four of Pentacles is the ideal man.

He treats his other half as his treasure. He is protective of and affectionate towards her.

The Five of Pentacles is true love.

The leper and the beggar are true to their marriage vows: “To have and to hold, for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and health, till death do us part.”

The Five of Cups predicts death.

When preceded by the Ten of Swords, the Five of Cups means someone dear to the querent will pass away soon.

The Queen of Swords is a spinster.

The other kings and queens are couples. But she is the King of Swords’ older unmarried sister.

The Lovers is sanctioned by the gods.

This person is the partner the heavens created for you. While the Two of Cups is a partner you choose.

The Tower predicts an inheritance.

When preceded or followed by Death, The Tower means someone will die and leave you an inheritance, or another windfall will come that will forever change your life for the better.

D.J. Cotrona as Sean Mathers in Windfall

“I just want to show up with the other lottery winners. You know, stop living my life in the shadows.” 

Just like Supernatural, there’s a The Office gif for every occasion…and Jim here PERFECTLY DESCRIBES MY RAGE TOWARDS ALICE. GIRL. COME ON. Seriously? SERIOUSLY? I’m way off the Teddy train right now. All aboard team Sawyer!

“This,“ I say softly, "is going to change everything.”
I don’t mean it the way I usually do.
I don’t mean that change is hard or scary, though it’s definitely both.
I mean only to say this: that sometimes, through good luck or bad, through curses or fate, the world cracks itself open, and afterward nothing will ever be the same.
All I mean is that this seems like one of those times.”

Jennifer E. Smith, Windfall
