General Yuzuru Chat


Recommended Posts

So the tarot topic is an interesting one to me since I’ve studied tarot a bit and have even done some readings for people that have proved to be very accurate to the situation that they were in at the time. I do think that it’s important to remember that tarot is not some magic system for predicting the future the way that some people think of it. (And to be clear I just mean that as a general statement, I’m not saying that anyone here was thinking that or was overreacting to the reading that was being discussed.) Readings are also partially dependent on the mindset of the reader and their own interpretation of the cards that they pull.

 

That being said, this discussion made me curious so I decided to grab my favorite deck and ‘inquire’ about Yuzu’s situation. This weekend has been bonkers enough for all Yuzu fans so why not. But I’ll spoiler cut it for those that don’t care about this topic.

So in asking about Yuzu’s current situation, the first card that I got is the Tower, which can represent unexpected change, upheaval, chaos, destruction, etc. Pretty self-explanatory and also sounds really negative on the surface, but this card can also represent the kind of ‘destruction’ that can clear the way for new evolution, for something more solid to be built in the place of what was there before. It’s represented in many decks by a bolt of lightning striking, which can set things aflame but can also bring flashes of great insight. “After a Tower experience, you will grow stronger, wiser and more resilient as you develop a new perspective on life you did not even know existed. These moments are necessary for your spiritual growth and enlightenment, and truth and honesty will bring about a positive change, even if you experience pain and anxiety throughout the process.”

 

Then in asking about Yuzu’s path through his current obstacles, I drew the Hierophant, which can represent a spiritual leader or just teachers/mentors in general and the pursuit of further knowledge/learning. It can represent various institutions/structures or traditional spiritual paths also, but I feel like the ‘teaching/learning and sharing of knowledge’ meaning might be most applicable here. “The card in the Advice position suggests a course of action which will harmonize what you want with what is currently possible. Develop your expertise, and have faith that you are a master in the making.” One interpretation that I think could apply here would be a situation where Yuzu trusts his medical team and follows their advice on treatment while also doing what he did last year and continuing to educate himself as much as possible about his injury and what his options are for rehab.

 

And finally, I asked for some indication regarding the future and what will be on the other side of this obstacle for Yuzu, and I drew the Three of Cups. This card can symbolize friendship and collaboration as well as celebration. It can represent the sense of positivity and inspiration that can come from being together in a group and finding community with like-minded people, whether it’s as friends or through working on something creative and positive together with others. “The network you interact with has a profound impact on your energy...You don’t have to go it alone. When you need support, turn to those you can count on.” Overall, this is a very warm, positive, and encouraging card to draw in this spot, and if I may editorialize a bit I would say that this could also be interpreted to mean that anything positive and encouraging that we can do as fans to show Yuzu our support will be a genuine help to him during this time.

 

 

If anyone had told me a year ago that I would be discussing tarot on a Yuzu fan forum, I would have been fully :english1:, but here we are. The Power of Zu.

It says there is the obstacle which may not be visible to them and it needs to be dealt with creatively. There are more ways than the only way they know which can solve the problem. They have the tendency to take risk and miss the creative way... I have a feeling that the obstacle is the injury or the current situation before GPF... To answer your question, "they have to" but the tarot result seems to be they cannot find it. ..remind you the result of OG was they would find creative/fresh way to solve the issue and the result would be beautiful...However, the result is a suggestion... so what are the creative ways...that is what I am currently thinking about. hope hope hope...:)

I feel like the outcome in this reading is exactly where Yuzuru is right now, so a new one is in order... Thanks @Vulnavia

 

Now he is looking at everything in a different light, thanks to the fall and starting with how he approached the FS. Like when he said maybe he caused this to happen (I forget the exact words), I don't think he was being fatalistic or self-blaming but really turning everything over in his mind to find what he might have missed or taken for granted, what he needs to change, etc.

No. Nononono. We can't cry. Now is the most important moment, when we have to be strong and believe in him. He doesnt't need our worries, because when we are worried he is worried because of us and I don't want to be burden to him. In this hard time he doesn't need our tears but our prays and support, and love, and positive vibes. Because that gives him strength. He is experienced. He knows what to do. He will come back. He always comes back.

:tumblr_inline_mqt4graWWO1qz4rgp: there is no use to worry after all, let's pray for the best and maybe we can make another fan project to express our love and support? :tumblr_inline_n18qr7hmfk1qid2nw:

My brain doesn't want to shut up and because of that I can't fall asleep. Maybe if I write some random thoughts here, it will clear my mind and help me sleep.

-last season after nhk I didn't cry. Because I actually believed that he would be ready for nationals. This season I don't believe it so it is harder for me to process. Especially after we were so happy with SP results. But yesterday, for many hours I still didn't cry. I didn't watch FS live. I was waiting for updates. And I only watched it after a few hours because I was afraid to do that. I finally started crying after I read some tweet written by a lady journalist who tried to explain to someone what happened to Yuzuru. 

-today I started crying again when I was watching VC and they showed a crying fan. And later again, after reading Mishin's comment about Yuzuru. Some of his past comments about Yuzu weren't so nice. He didn't say anything about Yuzuru after Pyeonchang. He was sitting beside me during ladies FS in Helsinki (2 group) and his facial expression was a little bit scary. And I was annoyed by his comments after NHK about Japanese ladies etc. So when I read his nice comment about Yuzuru I started crying really hard.

-I am happy that Daniil talked with Yuzuru before VC. Even when there's a tension between Eteri's team and Brian's team. Maybe he congratulated him. Maybe he wished him to get well soon. Or maybe... he asked him if he can make a program some day for him. This thought makes me laugh. Imagine them working together, especially on music cuts :rofl2:

-I am thankful to Misha. After that instagram drama during off season I am happy that he still decided to post a supportive massage. And this time he found a solution and turned off the comments under that post. 

-I was surprised by NBC commentary. It's good that they informed viewers about Yuzuru's situation. 

-I hope that fans won't try to bother TCC skaters on their social media to get some information about Yuzuru

-I don't trust anything JSF says

-You know what makes me feel better? That we will have more chances to get updates from Brian (and maybe even Tracy) than last season. Last year, after Yuzuru injured himself, Brian only went to one competition: France with Javi. This year, he will go to France with Evgenia and Jason, GPF with at least Stephen (and probably Zhenya and Jun) and assuming that Yuzuru won't go to nationals - Russian nationals with Zhenya. Brian will arrive in France on Wednesday. We don't know where Yuzuru has gone. To Canada or to Japan. He has to get his ankle checked, and to do that, it should stop swelling. So Brian probably won't know much this week. But by the time of GPF, Yuzuru's situation should be much clearer. 3 recommended weeks of rest will pass so hopefully Brian will share if Yuzuru needs more time of rest or is it enough. There's still rehabilitation, starting to train on the ice etc. so maybe we can get another update during Russian nationals. I will feel so much better getting information directly from his team and not from people who care about tickets and sponsors (aka JSF)

 

I hope I can finally fall asleep...
