Our Daily Spread for May 17, 2011

May 17, 2011 by



Is this the first time you come here? Well …

HOW TO USE THE MATERIAL WE HAVE FOR YOU HERE. Read the sentences, and pick out the ones that seem to apply to you, to the people around you. They are a Tarot analysis of your day’s circumstances. As the day (or several days) unfolds, you may find the information is relevant. Some of this information refers to a longer time period. The question is: “Tell the visitors here something useful and meaningful to them.” Often, your adopting the attitude you feel in the blog works for your day! Some days are ‘keep an eye open’ and some are ‘green lights.’

Without a question to focus the answer, four cards can mean even contradictory things. Without a question also the pronouns in a group reading are less specific, more flexible, especially in some of these Rider Waite Tarot spreads. Especially when a pronoun is in parentheses, feel free to substitute.

The Advice section sums up a general meaning of all the sentences. It is the favorite of most of us.

Remember to share your experience with a comment here if you have words for it … I spend two or more hours a day writing to you, after all! Say hello back!

Photos of the animals that the people who call me support are in with the articles I wrote for you. Enjoy them too! Stefanie is the one who has posted the few we have here. She did not do much with a hundred or more I sent her. Later!

And you can call me at the 800 99 3 6 9 12 number from Eastern 1 p. m. to Eastern 1 a. m. at least, every day. I analyze business situations accurately too. (Testimonials are on the web site.)


Three of Wands

Four of Wands, Devil, Eight of Pentacles

Meanings and Illustrations: Observation of the Spread

Four dissimilar cards here. (Well, Both Eight of Pentacles and Three of Wands speak of a continuing situation.) Four of Wands as Marriage, Family, Organization and Country; Devil as problems, difficult, handicap, sickness, nastiness; Eight of Pentacles as work, employment, job, keep doing, steady or steadily; and Three of Wands as income or make money, future tense.

Meanings and Illustrations: Common Phrases in the Spread

Making steady money, and having a steady job, is Eight of Pentacles with Three of Wands.

A house or marriage in bad shape is Four of Wands with Devil. It is also an organization for disabled people, or an organization that works on a problem or hazard. It is a dangerous neighborhood too, or where housing is a problem.

Difficult or hazardous work is Devil with Eight of Pentacles. It’s hate the job, too. It problems on the job. It’s one problem after another, too.

Devil with Three of Wands is always having problems; making money the hard way; will be doing the hardest, most difficult; and chronic illness.

Meanings and Illustrations: Individual Rider Waite Tarot Cards

Four of Wands in Rider Waite Tarot is the members of a human group: Marriage, Family, Organization and Country, as well as a house, the elite people. An organization is a company, an agency, a neighborhood, a work place or school, etc. Illustration is of a wedding of wealthy families.

Devil is a problem or difficulty; nasty, mean, ill-tempered; hazard/hazardous; sick, ill, disabled, addicted or screwed up mentally; ghetto or low class. If it’s not-so-good, this card covers it; but it has some pleasant and some neutral meanings as well, which are not being activated here except for addiction to work. The illustration in Rider Waite emphasizes that the attachment to vice (or bruted consciousness) is voluntary: Chains the devil has around the naked couple’s necks are loose, despite their having horns.

Eight of Pentacles refers to work, employment, job, keep doing, steady or steadily. In Rider Waite, it is one of the simple cards with fewer meanings and is one of the cards that appear way more frequently than random distribution. Illustration shows a carpenter making one identical piece after another with hammer and chisel.

Three of Wands talks about income coming in, or anything desirable coming in steadily, so ‘make money’ is a phrase for it. It calls forth the future tense in many of its sentences. It indicates good times. The illustration screams ‘ships come in.’ A merchant all dressed up awaits the arrival of the ship he is eyeballing, which contains his profit – money and merchandise. Very simple, few meanings.


Advice is about working through, working out, keeping at it steadily in spite of handicap, difficulty, and problems. Just keep doing your job no matter how bad you feel, and work gets you through to better times. But it doesn’t have to be employment; ‘work’ is what you do routinely that creates value. Keep working on the disability, inability or feelings. Keep working on the problems that everybody around you has.
