Superbowl 2017

If you live in America, there's a good chance you saw the recent Superbowl LI. If you saw the game, you saw the Lady Gaga half time show. But did you see the hidden in plain sight symbolism on that show? Did you see how they included tarot symbolism in it?

Without symbol literacy skills, you don't pay any attention to it. With some knowledge of tarot symbolism and the various ways it can be used, you can see something very interesting.

There were two tarot cards in the show. First, the Tower.

At the beginning of the show Lady Gaga is dropped from the roof of the stadium to the top of a tower on the stage. If you know anything about tarot, this should be a big red flag for you.

See how the top of the tower is shaped like a crown? Compare it to the card.

See what happens next? With some pyrotechnics "a lightning" strikes the tower and immediately the singer flies down to the stage. Compare it to the card.

The drop

After the drop we can see how the tower is smoking in flames. Compare it to the card.

That's how it's done. That's how you include all the important details of the card in to a stage show. And hundreds of millions of people watching it have no idea what they are looking at.

The second card comes right after the first one. Now it's about Death.

To see it, all you need to do, is to look at this picture below.

See the two towers on the background? See the sun rays between them? See the dancers in black clothes doing dance moves similar to riding? You do the math.
