Our Daily Spread June 8, 2011

Advice points out that we make our destiny when we allow or disallow influences and factors and people into our life space. “Wish I had never met you” or “You’ll never get another chance like that.” These destiny points come on cat feet and are heard in hindsight mode. Whether to go with this flow, or whether to exert influence on it: That is the question. ‘If’ and ‘What if’ are best reviewed in foresight mode.


Is this the first time you come here? Well … what to do:

*Go to Daily Message Tarot Analysis below. At least one of those sentences has something to say to you. Pick those out. They are about you and the people around you. They are about today and the days around it. (It is a group message like a horoscope, except Tarot isn’t based on someone else’s birth data, so it can be specific, accurate, detailed and direct. Our experiment here is “How much more accurate is it?”)

The Question for weekdays is: “Tell the visitors here something useful and meaningful to them.”

The Question for weekends is stated right on top on those days.

(Some days are ‘keep an eye open for’ and some days are ‘green light, go fast.’)

*Go to Advice to apply what those sentences say (in the best way) for you. (Advice is everyone’s favorite part.) Did you come here for your predictions? – You are done now – See you tomorrow.

Without a question to focus the answer, four cards can mean contradictory things especially when the Spread has a card that negates other cards. Without a question also the pronouns in a group reading are more flexible, especially in some of these Rider Waite Tarot spreads. When a pronoun is in parentheses, feel very free to substitute. The question in a ‘real’ individual reading supplies at least half the information!


Seven of Cups

Eight of Swords, Strength, Wheel of Fortune

DAILY MESSAGE TAROT ANALYSIS Tell the visitors here something useful and meaningful to them.

Laissez-faire Perspective

When you overcome limitations you impose on yourself, possibilities never before seen open up.

Doing what you were kept from doing allows all kinds of new things to happen.

Anything can happen when you use your personal power to keep “can’t” from getting to you.

What keeps opportunity stifled is you handling a lot of random meaningless things.

What prevents miracles is people who won’t let things get loose.

If you can’t let it out, let it fly, you are keeping it from happening.

Destiny is beyond our control, we can’t stifle it.

When you don’t let either the chaos or the limitations get to you, things happen for the best.

One chance in a million but she overcomes those impossible odds.

Enforcement Perspective

Your big break can’t happen until you get a grip on your craziness.

When you’re not in control, events get out of hand.

Things can’t get out of control when you make an opportunity to tame the opposition.

The chief limiting factor to things getting out of control is people who do have control of destiny.

What keeps all kinds of things from happening is self-discipline.

What keeps you from going crazy is your chance to tame those demons.

It can’t happen any old way, you restrain it.

Having control of what happens prevents chaos.


Now, Part Two,

Do you want to know a little, or a lot, about how this Tarot Verbatim ™ thing works? If so,

*Go to the first Meanings and Illustrations section below. This tells about the combined four pictures in the Daily Spread – the pictures above here. It explains how these four cards get together to mean things. Then you can

*Go to the second Meanings and Illustrations. It is what each of the four cards, by itself, has to say. It describes how that illustration makes that card’s meanings in this Spread.

You can put all this together and see yourself how Tarot Verbatim ™ works.

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. (3-6-9-12 like a clock. It makes a pattern on the phone as well – easy to remember.) I analyze business situations and personal relationships accurately from both Tarot and practical perspectives, and even make it fun. (Testimonials are on the web site. Just click the link.)


Meanings and Illustrations: Observation of the Spread

Our four Rider Waite Tarot cards today are an interesting mix: The basic meanings are limitations; to control limitations; events happen; out of control. So we have a theme that contrasts being in control with letting things happen.

Both Eight of Swords and Strength refer to limitations. Eight of Swords in Tarot Verbatim ™ Rider Waite means can’t, helpless, be kept from, unable, contained and restrained. Strength means to keep an opposing factor from affecting, to keep the opposition down, to keep uncivilized behavior from occurring, to contain chaos. So here, together, you have the stifled thing and the person who stifles it.

Wheel of Fortune and Seven of Cups each refer to events happening. Wheel of Fortune is about the best thing, the miracle, happening. It is about destiny and luck (usually good luck). It refers to the factor coincidence plays in what happens. Seven of Cups in Rider Waite Tarot echoes the Pandora’s Box and the Sorcerer’s Apprentice stories. It is about things being out of control and ‘shit happening.’ It is about losing control (usually in a bad way). Seven of Cups with Chariot, for instance, could mean losing control of the vehicle. It is about all kinds of unrelated things jumbled up together like debris.

Strength and Wheel of Fortune are “good cards.” Strength is not letting bad stuff happen, and Wheel of Fortune is the best stuff happening.

Eight of Swords and Seven of Cups are “bad cards.” Eight of Swords is nothing can happen, gridlock, and Seven of Cups is everything happening at once senselessly (chaos).

Meanings and Illustrations: Individual Rider Waite Tarot Cards

Eight of Swords is about binding, keeping something/someone from doing or expressing. It’s Archie Bunker telling Edith: “Stifle yourself.” It is containment, confinement, restrictions and limitations. It’s about being helpless, hopeless, locked in or up, and dead.

The illustration in Rider Waite Tarot is a blindfolded woman tied up far away from (her?) castle, in a swamp, her head bent, not struggling.

Strength is not letting it get to you. It is about overcoming any factor, within or without, whose influence is detrimental to you … taming the beast, whether the beast is within you or is out there either lurking or openly confronting/attacking you.

Now, note she is petting the monster. He came on roaring and is now purring against his will because her strength of character is overcoming a predator. She has that symbol of eternity over her head and is wearing that white robe with flowers. She is using diplomacy. She is using the principle of jujitsu, restraining him with his own energy, not her own, which is less effort on her part to quieten him. I think this is what ‘Love your enemies’ is all about, but I’m a Viking, what do I know about that ?

Wheel of Fortune is things happening for the best, the optimum outcome. It means destiny, luck, a chance, opportunity, and an event. Its illustration shows all sorts of occult symbols, all of whom have books which suggests karma to me. The wheel in the middle looks like a roulette wheel.

Seven of Cups is out of control, random distribution, all sorts of unrelated things jumbled together … ‘up pops the devil.’ It’s Pandora’s Box and the Sorcerer’s Apprentice: chaos is let loose. It is the house after the tornado. The illustration in Rider Waite Tarot is the black robed figure confronted with a cloud of miscellaneous things as in a nightmare. Nightmare is one of its meanings – not here.

    I keep reading, ‘it’s going to happen’, but i keep waiting and nothing ever comes thru to fruition. maybe I’m just sitting watching the pot boil and we know what that usually means….
    Patience is not my forte especially when I need to wait for ‘them’ (employers) to call me to say the famous words I want to hear, “We want to offer you the job”

    • You know, every time I had a job interview where I really didn’t want the job, they hired me. There’s a psychology underlying interviews similar to the psychology you feel in singles bars: If someone is anxious, they must be not as desirable a candidate as someone who is very much at ease. Another principle is: When you want something too much, you repel it. In either situation, playing ‘hard to get’ often is the best strategy.

        thanks Emily, I know that is true about the ‘reverse psychology’. let go and let God..right?
        I need to practice the art of ‘playing hard to get’…

    But the trick is to choose with discrimination, not eat everything in front of you because you may not get another chance.

    ” Four ounces can deflect a thousand pounds” picking and choosing, hope our eyes and hearts are sensitive for the day at hand, Thanks Emily!
