Our Daily Spread for July 5, 2011

Jul 4, 2011 by

Advice is about the kind of balance that involves using the factors that are for you and the factors that are against you to serve your purpose and fuel your achievement of your goal (‘Tacking against the wind’ in maritime). Two of the four Rider Waite tarot cards involve this subject. Two of them also say this kind of achievement is not just about physical but about ‘out there’ (spiritual) expertise and skill.


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. Comment or call if you have a suggestion for a question.

(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!


High Priestess

Death, Knight of Pentacles, Chariot

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

Death-High Priestess Perspective

She is not waiting for the guy, his success is his only interest in life.

All she thinks of is his death in a vehicle.

Death-Knight of Pentacles Perspective

He isn’t focused on his achievements but on his expertise.

His main interest is not material achievement but spiritual expertise.

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.

Photos of the animals are in with the articles I write for you. Click the link. Enjoy them too! The people . who call me support these and other animals. 100 photos of them are not posted here yet.

Say hello back! Comment! I spend two hours a day or more writing these to you. Remember to share your experience about our experiment here if you have words for it. Read others’ comments.

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.)



The first thing to notice is the Death card. It is the main negator or negative modifier, so the spread is going to have diverse meanings, depending on which card the negative is attached to. This is why I divided the sentences into which card the death card modifies. (The death card also means other things, of course, like ‘end.’)

Knight of Pentacles and Chariot are very ambitious men, driven men. Chariot is a success. Knight of Pentacles is determined to ‘make it.’

The remaining card is the lady, High Priestess, who is passive, who has spiritual expertise, who is quiet.  Her spiritual and other-plane expertise are echoed in Chariot, in his ability to use the black and the white together to accomplish his purposes. (World is about that, too.)

You could say Knight of Pentacles is to Chariot as High Priestess is to World.)

Both Chariot and High Priestess express the idea of balance. He in the black and white steeds, she in the “B” and the “J” of the Kaballah.


Death is your negative modifier or negator. Without a question, the meaning of a spread will vary very widely depending on which card the negator modifies. People get upset when they see “The Death Card” but when it modifies a ‘bad’ card’ the two negatives make a positive. Keep that in mind if you read cards yourself. The illustration is of the crown held by the bishop when a king dies before the new king is crowned. Hence, a change of regimes, a shift of power.

Knight of Pentacles is driven, determined, ambitious, focused on a main interest, obsessed. He is macho, a tough guy, a very physical guy, is strong of body. He aims to get the job done; whereas Chariot has done the job and is in control of the situation. His illustration in the Rider Waite system shows the tough looking dude on a tough-looking horse, staring at this one thing he has in mind. His ambition is about himself, whereas Chariot’s is about accomplishing the project, meeting the goal.

Chariot is the leader. He has achieved, he has got the job done and the situation under control. He is skilled at using both factors that favor his success and factors that are antagonistic to his achieving it to fuel his arrival where he wants to be. A self-made man. Depicted in the Rider Waite system as the charioteer who has the black steed going left and the white steed going right, and he gets a forward movement out of that. It’s called ‘tacking against the wind’ in maritime lingo. This energy is not self-promoting per se; it is goal oriented and about a project being accomplished.

High Priestess is passive, has spiritual expertise, is quiet. In Rider Waite, she sits on an invisible throne, with the “B” and the “J” that mean mercy and severity or justice. The tree of the Kaballah, with pomegranates for its bases, is behind her. She wears the cross and has the book of knowledge in her lap, not looking at it because … she wrote it. She knows, she understands, she is camouflaged. She is the lady, and the other woman, in practical application. Her spiritual and other-plane expertise are echoed in Chariot, in his ability to use the black and the white together to accomplish his purposes. As I said above, World is also in this category, moreso: World has arrived.

You could say Knight of Pentacles is to Chariot as High Priestess is to World.

    Wow. 280 is blindingly fast. I’ll note your advice and keep it in mind. I’m working on briefs and to shortening my theory. The skills test is in a month. The 175 Lit, and 200 Jury Charge are doable, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to pass the 225 Q&A. All I can do is do my best. If I don’t pass, I can always try again. Things happen in their own time, for a reason.

    Hi Emily,
    Still just transcribing. Going to take the NCRA written test in a few weeks. The skills test is in a month or so. If I pass that, then I can take the California one. Till then it is work work work. The transcription is good preparation for the emotional part of the job, a lot of recorded phone calls. Hope all is well with you.

    • Yeah, the emotional part of the job would be a factor for you, you’re such a Lady! On the NCRA, pay attention to the ancillary, unimportant words. I discovered when I did practice tests after many years of reporting that I dropped “and.” I guess it didn’t register.

      You do better on tests right out of school. So work for the biggie – I forget what you call it. I did 280 for 5 minutes back in the day.

      Listen for short forms like M-K SHUN for myocardial infarction.

    I can’t put my finger on why, but this reading fits the mood of today very well, a kind of strange unsettled feeling. I’ve been transcribing these recordings of arguing people all of yesterday, their frustration and moods are so thick. Anyways, thank you for this spread, it hit a note, but in a way I don’t have words to describe it yet.

    • That’s a great post, thank you for sharing.
      Yes, you get hung over in some court reporting cses. Are you working now as a reporter or as a transcriber?
