Tarot Addresses the “Real” Question
Rider-Waite

Chasing

Two of Pentacles

Knight of Wands, Three of Wands, Eight of Pentacles

Knight of Wands – to pursue
Three of Wands – continuing
Eight of Pentacles – doing the same thing over and over, like a routine
Two of Pentacles – around and around
The question behind your Daily Spread messages is “Tell the people who come to this blog about their day, what is happening to them.” The cards above made one of the first ‘Daily Spread’ messages when Stef and I were birthing this Tarot Verbatim blog.  I, Emily looked at it and said “I CAN’T PUT THAT IN THERE!”  So I did another one.

When I told Stef about the spread that said “going around in circles over and over again chasing forever,” she laughed a lot.  She said, “I have noticed that these spreads match what my cats are doing.”  (Stef rescues cats and cares for them like kings.)  “And here’s this gray kitten:  He has been CHASING HIS TAIL all day without letup with great energy, and I’ll bet he will be doing that tomorrow as well.”   (which did happen!)
I thought about this.  At the time I lay down these cards, guess who was the main person going to the blog looking at it? – because it wasn’t fully up yet, and only a few people had been told about it.  Well, Stef, of course.
SO the cards were describing what was happening in HER life.  Accurately.  Those cats are her life, are what is happening in her house.

This echoes another story that happened when I was teaching myself the Tarot, which turned out to be Tarot Verbatim, way back in 1980.  I will tell you that story in a few days.

    Yes, I can see how this can now apply to my daily morning coffee.

    Peepsqueak sounds adorable – a tarot spread just for him : ). I really liked this article, it made me step back and pay attention to the rhythms of life.

  3. Looks like Peepsqueak has got his 15 minutes of fame. LOL That whole day and part of the next, tail-chasing was *the* activity*. Evil tail! Must … catch … tail.

    I understand what you mean when you say (paraphrasing) “Tell the people what is happening to them that day”. I will make this a daily routine to get the gist of what my day has in store for me, even with ‘free will’. thanks again!
