Our Daily Spread for August 20, 2011 Saturday (c)

Aug 20, 2011 by

Advice is about the downside of being identified with the mentality and the doings of whatever group you are considered part of or identify yourself with.  It is about what you think is wrong or hate about the doings of companies,  countries,  families –  any group.  Even hating family.  The downside of group consciousness,  the dark side of membership.  About everybody being mistaken.  About what everybody thinks is bad.



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

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

The Question for weekends is usually 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 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!

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


Say hello back! Comment! Remember to share your experience about our experiment here if you have words for it. Read others’ comments.





Three of these Tarot citizens are multi-meaninged or ambiguous ones.  The one that is precise is the Magician,  which simply means to act and a male who acts,  and any form of the verb ‘do.’


The reason for all the negative political language is,  of course,  the Devil card in combination with the Magician which means to do,  to act –  hence an evil or wrong or mistaken action;  and then the other two cards together meaning mass or group (Four of Wands) consciousness (Page of Pentacles);  or a person’s being (Page of Pentacles) a member of a group or family (Four of Wands).  So, the evil deeds (Devil) of a group (Four of Wands) in reference to consciousness (Page of Pentacles).


Lighthearted messages are hard to come by when these four get together.

There are some even darker things you could make of this spread which I have ignored, such as black magic (Devil and Magician), such as identifying with evil (Page of Pentacles and Devil), such as incest (Devil as lust or sex and Four of Wands as family) and so on.




Devil is being limited to the lowest form of.  The phrases it makes here today –  It is a very ambiguous card and not all its meanings are distasteful.  –  are:

black sheep,




ruining or destroying,




bad things,


abuse or punish,


bad person,

what they hate,



do harm,



bad name. Its illustration shows a nude couple wearing the Devil’s horns and loose –  hence voluntary –  chains around their necks which ‘attach’  them to the Devil. Occult symbols of the devil and black magic are on this card too.


Magician,  as I said,  is a very precise-meaninged card.  Male.  Male who does,  and conjugate the whole ‘to do’  verb.  Act,  action.  The card represents the male principle of ‘active’  as opposed to the female principle of ‘receptive.’


Page of Pentacles can represent a male (most often) or female.  It can represent a thought or thinking or a study of.  It can represent identity or being identified as,  or identifying oneself as.  Those are its main focus.  The illustration in Rider Waite is a young person who intently examines the held-aloft pentacle.


Four of Wands depicts a wedding,  in Rider Waite Tarot,  of two leading families –  say a noble or royal wedding.  This is a public display,  which brings community life into its meaning.  It stands for group,  for powerful groups of families (companies, corporations).  It obviously refers to a marriage or family or spouse.

    Politics uglier and more hateful than I’ve ever seen.
    Fear and hate as the dominating message instead of
    information and problem solving. People who surprise me with comments
    that make me wonder if we live in the same world at all.
    I think this spread addresses my dismay at where “we” are headed.

    • Emily

      Yes, I think it does. I am ‘not ready’ for this political material. I sit down to talk to people here about their lives. But, politics is our lives, isn’t it? I am with you, Jules.
