Rhett & Link Tarot Card Reading


– ( rooster crows )
– ( lion roars )
( whispers )
Welcome to Good
Mythical More. Mind reading?
Whoa, that’s crazy. – What?
– What are the chances? We’ve never land–
have we ever landed
on this before? Okay, write down what
you’re thinking right now and I’m gonna guess it
because I am psychic. This is a new wheel and it–
on the freakin’ psychic. I’m not gonna watch. Okay. That’s it?
You’ve already got it. Just, uh– Are you fake writing? No. Got it. – ( exhales )
– What am I thinking
right now? You… You’re thinking
about your dog. ( laughing ) ( laughing ) ( screams ) Oh, gosh, there’s something
in the air today, man. “Petting Jade!” Oh. What? Well, the dog–
we saw the dog– I’m the freaking
psychic, man. We saw the dog
in the video and he kissed his dog, and I was thinking
about petting my–
is that how you knew? Yeah, well,
Ellie told me
in the background. ( both laugh ) But I got ya. That’s how it works,
y’all realize right? ( clears throat )
That’s how it works. – That’s how it works.
– We don’t believe– I don’t believe
in psychic powers. I’m not gonna
speak for you. Do you believe
in psychic powers? Um, you know what?
I’m not sure. Like, generally, no.
But we don’t know everything that’s
up in the world. – I think that
it is plausible–
– Speak for yourself. – It’s plausible.
– Don’t say “we.” – You know everything?
– We know everything that’s up. Plausible,
but highly improbable. Ellie, come in
a little bit more. Okay. Enh! Um, so… because we don’t believe
in psychic powers, we’re gonna get you
to do my tarot card
reading, right? Yeah, so this is
an unprofessional
tarot card reading. So it’ll be even better. It’s fun, though.
It’s a lot of fun. I used to do this thing
in junior high where I would interpret
people’s dreams for money. Which was basically
just, like, basic– like writing
an English paper with,
like, symbols and stuff. And this feels
not that dissimilar,
so, um… But I do believe
in dream interpretation in the most practical sense. – Okay.
– As a baseline, okay? I’m not gonna say everything
that I don’t believe, but I’m gonna say
what I do believe. What I do believe
is that you could do a lot of research on what
imagery in dreams means, and then, I think,
as human beings, we tend to– you know,
like, we were saying, well, you got the classic
anxiety dream. I think if you know
something about a person and you hear the dream
that they’ve had, it’s a window
into their subconscious. And you can–
you could probably, in an almost talk therapy
kind of way, use dreams to access something that they didn’t
want to verbalize. I think you’re totally
right about that. The unconscious is real.
We know that’s true. And we know that it
has something to do– The uncon–
yeah, like if you get
hit on the head. – Right, exactly.
– The subconscious
is also real. We have dreams
we all share that–
dreams that are all weird. They have
to mean something. It’s weird to think
that they might just be total brain gibberish. But this is card gibberish.
Let’s do it. So these used to just
be playing cards in Italy. And then they became,
all, like, infused with
spiritual intent. Well, that’s why, growing up in the South,
no one really– no one really
subscribed to this
when we were growing up, but we knew
the generation before us, they were very much
against cards.
Did you know that? – Oh, yeah.
– Oh, sure. Oh, all cards. If you went to the Baptist
church, you didn’t play cards
and you didn’t dance. I’m talking, like, ’50s,
’60s, and before that. – Yeah.
– Because they were evil. They’re the devil lies. I thought that cards–
that was because of gambling, not because of tarot cards. No, it wasn’t just
because of gambling. It was because cards
are associated with
the devil himself. Yeah, well, because–
it’s like, if spirits
are talking to you… They’re against
gambling as well, too. …they’re probably
bad spirits. – Anyway, so…
– Do I draw? …we’re gonna enter
a world where we believe
in this stuff, and I’m sure there’s
people in the comments who are gonna be like,
“She did it wrong.” I know I did it wrong.
I’m not a tarot reader. Welcome to
the comments section. Let your voice be heard. What I need you to do
is I need you to pick
a question. A question,
and keep it to yourself, and it should be
more of a general question. Not like, “What am I
gonna eat for dinner?” You know, so, like, “What does this life
have in store for me?” Or “How will my career go?”
Stuff like that. So you pick you question,
noodle it, and then touch the cards
with your hand. Have you picked it? Okay, yes. All right, now,
close your eyes. Think about the question.
Only think about the question. Let it go from your brain
down through your neck, to your… right arm, down to the elbow,
the tendons, down to the fingers,
onto the cards. The question is now
seeping through the cards and the cards
are listening to you and they’re ready
to tell you your future. – Ready?
– Okay. Okay, can you
cut the deck for me? I’m not allowed
to use knives. Ha. My goodness. All right, so we’re
gonna do a simple… This could be you
right now, Rhett. – It’s psychic-ing.
– Okay. Is that a good place? All right. All right. Link:
Now, we’ve read each other’s
on this show before. That didn’t amount to much. Okay, so we’re gonna start–
this is your finances. What you’ve got
is the Four of Cups. Now, because I’m not
a professional, I’m gonna read it
off my little card. – Of course, yes.
– If you’re trying to convince
people you’re a psychic, memorize the book,
don’t break out the book. Yeah, that one lady,
like, did it. – She was so good at it.
– She was a fake. You could probably
just make it up,
but I want to be real. So, all right,
we’ve got the Four of Cups. How’s my riches? So we have,
“A young man seated
under a tree, and he contemplates
three cups set on
the grass before him. He expresses discontent
with his environment. An arm issuing from a cloud
offers him another cup.” – There it is.
– The old one-armed cloud. So, “This is card of loss,
but something remains. Three have been taken,
but two are left.” It’s like a math problem. “It’s a card of inheritance,
transmission, and patrimony. It may be a card of marriage, but not without bitterness
or frustration. In reverse–” That doesn’t matter,
because it’s facing you. Three are lost
and two are kept? – Yeah, so–
– What do you have five of? – Fingers.
– Okay, you’re gonna
lose two of those. No, so, in my opinion– If I were gonna lose
a few fingers on one hand, it would probably be… I think I’d want
to keep the pinkie. – It’d probably be these two.
– You don’t need the pinkie. – It’d probably be these two.
– That’s only losing two. I would want, like,
a marsupial hand. You gotta lose three. Well, then,
the choice is clear. – You gotta keep index.
– Gotta keep the pincers. – Yeah, that’s crucial.
– Yeah. – Let’s move on.
– Okay. Well, in general,
I think your finances
are good, but there might be
some shifting, there might be
some disarray. But it’s all
gonna be okay. I’m not worried. Okay, now we’re
moving to career. And career,
we’ve got the, um… – Seven of Swords.
– Seven of Swords. Seven of Swords. What do you
have seven of? – Yeah, that is
how this works.
– Career-wise? Well, now that I got rid
of those three fingers, I’ve got seven. – There you go.
– That’s right. What is going to happen
to my remaining fingers? – Okay, so you can see…
– It’s all about the fingers. “A man in the act
of carrying away
five swords rapidly. The two others of the card
remain stuck in the ground. And this means
design, attempt, wish,
hope, confidence, also quarreling,
a plan that may fail,
annoyance.” – A lot of annoyance.
– And it’s reversed,
it’s facing me. It’s not facing you,
so it’s reversed, which means
“Good advice, counsel, instruction,
as well as babbling.” These are all
very confusing. – Babbling?
– I would say that here’s
a man making away with a bunch
of swords, right? But two swords
have to be left. I think that,
in your career, you’re always making
difficult decisions about, like,
what you can carry and what you have
to leave behind. – Mm.
– And I think that that
can sometimes be… “You wish and hope
and you have confidence in all that
you’re carrying.” But then there’s also
slander and babble, and that’s what you
leave behind. That’s what I’m choosing
to leave behind. Yeah, I think
that’s a good call. – He needs to babble less?
– Well… Slander more. Okay. Keep the babblers away. Okay, do you
want to go to romance
or health and happiness? Uh, let’s save romance
for last. – Okay.
– Health and happiness. Okay, so those
are the pentacles. – That’s the–
– The pentacles? Seven of Pentacles. It’s pentagrams
that grow on a bush. – Pentacles, you’ve seen ’em.
– Yeah, really good in a pie. In Arizona.
Right outside of Sedona. This guy looks pretty sad
with his pentacles. – “A young man
leaning on his staff”…
– His pentacle bush. “…looking intently
at seven pentacles attached to
a clump of greenery.” – A clump of greenery?
– Uh-huh. That’s what it says. “One would say that
these were his treasures and that his heart was there.” So this is a very
contradictory card. “It’s a card of money
and business and bartering, but it can also mean
altercation and quarrel.” I don’t know what
that word means. “Purgation?” – Forgation?
– Purgation. – Purgation.
– Purgation.
I’m very purgatious. Yeah, yeah.
You’re the most purgatious
person I know. I have to pay,
I have to pay for my nasty. – What?
– What? – Wait till you get
to the romance card.
– Oh, like purgatory. Oh, boy. Yeah, what were you
up to last night? Um, we’ve got– Just watching TV.
She was asleep. – So, I think–
– Fun night. I would say, in general,
your health and happiness is in a good spot,
but it is– it wildly varies based on
triggers in your life. So, like, you can express one way and then feel another. You can feel one way and share
a different feeling. – I’m two-faced.
– You’re a Gemini, right? – Happens all the time.
– I’m a June baby, yes. – Junebug.
– You’re a Gemini.
I’m a Gemini. I feel you. – I just– I think–
– We don’t know what we want. You don’t know what you want,
so it’s always going to vary. But we’re unhappy… – Not always.
– that we have it. We’re always, like,
the toast of a party. Geminis are great
at parties. So… – And then romance.
– Romance. Stevie:
I really like the role
that Rhett’s playing
in all this.
How would you describe it?
‘Cause I can’t see him.It’s like if you took your
friend to a psychic
and then they’re just
like, “Mm. Mm-mm.”
I probably memed myself
a few times. You can’t say that,
first of all. That’s like shouting out
your own Instagram on our podcast every week. That was–
2017 was the last year that you couldn’t
meme yourself. 2018, people are like,
whatever, who cares? Probably meme-ing myself
over here. – Uh, this–
– Have you ever
had a kid tell you that you were using
a dead meme? – Oh, wow.
– That really hurt. Using a dead meme. Yeah, I had a kid over Easter,
I was with my younger cousins, and I said a joke
and they were like, “Ellie, that’s
a dead meme.” And I was like,
“Oh, God, I’m ancient.” I’m gonna make meme faces
for the rest of this. You can just capture ’em
and use them however you want. – All right.
– All right, so my romance is I’m a dead guy
underneath three swords. Ellie:
We don’t know if he’s dead.
He could just be taking a nap. I guess we’re
about to find out. Okay, so this is
the Four of Swords. “The effigy of a knight
in the attitude of prayer at full length
upon his tomb.” Okay. I’m at full length
upon my tomb. Okay. All right, so this means
vigilance, retreat, solitude,
hermit’s repose,
exile, tomb… – This is a romance card?
– …and coffin. Dead, isolated, alone. Reversed, it means… precaution and testament. I don’t know, man.
It’s not the best
for romance. But these cards don’t
mean anything, so… Oh, gosh. I think you
might need, uh– – she went to sleep,
you watched TV.
– Just say it. I think that’s good.
You just need
some alone time. At least I’m not gonna die
in the lovemaking process. I didn’t know
what was gonna happen. No, this is just solitar– you’re just hanging out
with your sword habit. Take time for your hobby
of… swords? Ellie, you’ve done great, especially given what
you had to look at. I didn’t have to see him
while you were doing it. – Oh, my God.
– Okay, boy, this is not–
this is not for me. Do you want to turn
one more card? Is that part of it?
‘Cause not really. Maybe. Oh, yes. This means everything’s
gonna work out. – Oh, thank you.
– Yeah.
