He is really doing a major sales pitch here to get you to do something for him as if it were a fair exchange: Don’t do it.

Five of Swords
High Priestess, Three of Pentacles, Two of Cups

This spread is a great example of how the question would change the meaning of the cards. If it’s love, the language goes one way, and if it’s business the language is very different.

Romance Perspective:
Keep your ears open and be quiet meeting with someone: He feels the need to coerce you or to be one-up on you because of your influence on him.
He is really doing a major sales pitch here to get you to do something for him as if it were a fair exchange: Don’t do it.
He is seducing her and intimidating her to be the passive lady in relationship to him.
She is being quietly seductive to get this bastard to do his part in the deal/relationship.
She is in the relationship to meet a third party through this pushy guy.

He intimidates her into having a sexual affair with him.
She is attracted to bad guys to have relationships with.
Bad guys are attracted to her because she is passive in relationships.
This smart alec has a love affair going with this ladylike woman.
If you want to associate with her, you have to put up with her overbearing mooch.

Business Perspective:
She knows a deal with him involves being taken advantage of, but she, too, has an agenda of her own.
A third party is taking a cut of the profit in this deal – a silent participant.
She is in the deal that is disadvantageous to her to meet the third party.
He engineered a deal in which he gets the lion’s share of the profits, but it is influenced behind the scene in secret.
In business deals with women, he gets taken advantage of through seduction or sexual attraction.

She quietly influences him – the robber baron – to favor her in this deal
She uses her influence to get them to meet with the hotshot edgy guy.
She uses her influence to get the guy who ripped them off to meet with them.
The deal is dictated for her to get a cut of profit without active participation in it.
He is using her to entice people into doing business with him and be taken advantage of.

She knows how to make business deals mutual between parties who vie to take advantage of one another.
She can get these two sharks into mutually profitable contracts.
He takes advantage of the real estate broker dealing behind her back.
Profits in this contract are siphoned off: Parties are coerced into agreeing to share proceeds with a nonparticipant.
If you want to do business with her, he makes you go through him.

These are very interesting cards together. *In the middle, we have the Three of Pentacles that in the Rider Waite deck means deal, relationship, doing business, meeting (often of three parties), contract and agreement. *It is followed by two cards of being taken advantage of. The first of those, the Two of Cups, is about the influence of a third party who is unknown to the others … again, three people together … and suggests being used or mooched. It is also a love affair or seduction where someone gets used. *The other, the Five of Swords is being outsmarted and/or intimidated by a pushy bastard or thug who rips you off or takes foul advantage. Say, the hotshot stock broker. *Then, the first card, the High Priestess, in the company of these others, suggests a nonparticipant, a very quiet party, a secret, behind-the-scenes deal, someone who is very knowledgeable and very quiet about expertise.

* The first card drawn is the High Priestess, the last is the Five of Swords.

Coercion is the subject of both Five of Swords and Two of Cups. Behind-the-scene secretive influence is suggested by both the High Priestess and the Two of Cups. And there’s ‘the deal/relationship’ between those influences.

The perfect storm.

Advice is to be aware of an innocent-seeming interaction or meeting with someone who has an agenda you aren’t aware of, but could be. Somebody is ‘up to something.’ Somebody wants a favor, a loan, the car keys, to move in ‘for two weeks,’ etc. or wants to sell you something you will be sorry about later. Advice is to smell the rat.

Meanings and Illustrations: (mostly supplied above, too)

High Priestess: Usually a woman, but sometimes generalized into more than that. This is someone who is quietly in the background and is informed; someone or something that is classified or secret. It indicates ‘not doing,’ not acting. The stereotypical passive lady who may manage to be controlling but at least is very knowing about what is really going on. Illustration shows the lady sitting quietly in the background, symbols of occult expertise all around her.

Three of Pentacles in the Rider Waite deck means deal, relationship, doing business, meeting (often of three parties), contract and agreement. Illustration shows three parties sealing a real estate deal.

Two of Cups is about the influence of a third party (or a factor) who is unknown to the others … again, three people together … and suggests being used or mooched. It is also a love affair or seduction where someone gets used. It suggests one kind of subtle coercion that the Five of Swords suggests the other kind. Illustration in the Rider Waite Two of Cups is a caduceus overshadowing a couple ‘pledging their troth.’

Five of Swords is being outsmarted and/or intimidated by a pushy bastard or thug who rips you off or takes foul advantage. Say, the hotshot stock broker. Say, the pool shark. Say the guy who wants a piece of you. Say a mugger or robber. It also means to ‘pull something off’ or to get even sometimes.

Question for you: There are fewer visitors on the weekends. Stefanie is going to see whether people catch up on weekend material come Monday. If not, should I just put one issue out for each weekend, instead of two? Are we wasting material?
Stef: I’d also like to know if any of you go back to read previous comments, especially Emily’s.

He’s got to get this new phase on the road, get started with it

Judgment
Ace of Wands Magician Knight of Wands

He must get going and do it now, must initiate the change.
He is the one who must hurry back.
He’s got to get this new phase on the road, get started with it.
Big news: He is in a hurry to do it now.
He is ordered to run over there and do it immediately.

He wins – record breaking speed.
Gets a promotion and is transferred for that big accomplishment he did.
He’s got to recover in a hurry.
Doing this one thing speeds his recovery.
Dashing off to a whole new life he made for himself.

Got to hurry up and do it again.
He has to leave town to start this new life.
The most important thing to do is to rush into the new consciousness.
It says you have to go this fast on the road, so he does.
What he has to do is rush things back to they way they were.

Well, this is all about a man. We have a man on the way up, getting something very important done, something that is big news. He is getting it done in a hurry. Maybe he is doing it again. But, by golly it is he who is doing it. He is making a big change in a hurry.

Advice? I guess, to get out of the dude’s way, or, if you are the dude, get on with it.

Meanings and Illustrations:

Ace of Wands: Got to. The most important – this one thing. Big. An order. Win. This is the assertive stance: It’s an order. Shows the hand with the board in it.

Magician: In case you miss the previous card, this one too is a male taking action. It shows a magician about to make something happen with the tools of his trade.

Knight of Wands: There is goes, on his way up and out of town, in pursuit today of his success, his new life. He is dashing off in pursuit of something to use that big stick on, yes?

Judgment: Up out of the graves. This is a new life if ever there was one. Recovery, the big announcement, a change. Revival too.

    There seems to be a different feel or intrepreter for the 2 spreads today. I do read every day, I don’t usually go back but now maybe I will.

  2. Anna

    I read both sets of spreads everyday. Usually the spreads are depicting something subtle that has happened in my life the night before or the morning the spreads are published. I don’t go back and read comments, but I do go back sometimes to remember what Emily has said about a certain card to get a better handle on what the card means, or can mean.

  3. Tina G

    I do the same as Brittney just said. In fact, I look back to see of any did come to fruition, so far my male friend has not bit the bullet and called but I’m hopeful.

  4. Jules

    This is illustrating the unease I have felt in an interaction,
    only just recently. I’m a little sad at the change in my relationship,
    (darn), but feel very conscious and aware of what’s going on. “Informed”, yes.
    Mature about it… surprise!

    I read almost every day, comment often, and I look back at comments.

    Thanks all!

  5. Brittney

    I read the site everyday Emily. I may not always comment but I read it every morning. Sometimes I go back and look at other comments.
