Our Daily Spread for November 18, 2011 Friday ©

Nov 18, 2011 by

Advice announces you will win if you stand up to the dark side inside or outside yourself.  The big announcement is:  Whatever the biggest problem is,  is where your luck is:  Push hard there and the cosmic vending machine will send what you select down the chute.  The same messages produce the idea of enjoying the challenge,  the fight,  with the dark side,  with bullies of all stripes.  “Aren’t you pleased that you are standing up to the downside?”  is my favorite.  Enjoy resisting cravings and addictions.   Cowardly lion no more. Today is adventure,  troops!

(At the time of production, there’s no way to correct the lack of spaces after punctuation.  I am writing around it now!)


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

 *Go to Advice above which is a summary of the Messages. (Advice is everyone’s favorite part.)

 *Go to Daily Message Tarot Analysis below. One or more of those sentences has something to say to you. Intuitively 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?”)

 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!


Nine of Cups  –  Seven of Pentacles  –  Seven of Wands

(All the cards show males,  but these messages apply to both genders.  I just went with  ‘he’  and  ‘him.’)


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

Problem-Resolved-Wonderfully Perspective (Nine of Cups + Devil)

Regarding whatever problem you are struggling with:  It goes your way,  all your way!

Wherever things are hardest for you,  push there for the best satisfying experience ever!

You thought you were facing a big problem but you got exactly what you wanted.

Well,  the showdown was a stressful experience,  wasn’t it?  –  but you got your way.

Can you fight for what you want and get it,  or is that a problem for you?

I believe you can fight that craving and have the life you want.

All you have to do is resist your evil side to be what you want to be,  you know?

I guess I fought my devil and won,  because I am satisfied with myself.

Struggle,  Combat,  Fight Perspective (Seven of Wands)

Do you really want this nasty fight?  –  you will win.

What is this joy of battle I am feeling?  –  It’s addicting.

Oh?  It wants to fight?  I’m feeling nasty!

Why am I feeling so mean?  –  because I want to defend myself?

Did I really get that wicked when I would not let him come in:  Yeah …!

Why do I consider getting directly in the face of the enemy with such satisfaction?

I think the worst that can happen would be:  I get him to scream and holler.

If you get in the bad guys’  face combatively,  you will get what you want.

He seems to be struggling against what he really wants like it’s the enemy.

Aren’t you pleased that you are standing up to the downside?

If it is evil we are fighting against,  bring it on!

Want to do harm in this battle now,  I guess.

I thought I was defending myself,  but now I want to get really vicious.

I will get what I want if I go face to face with the enemy.  Pondering this.

Well,  I thought I was defending myself … then I wanted to kill.

I guess if it’s a battle to the death,  I want it.

Is he demanding his space like you’re his enemy?  –  let him have it,  grant his wish.

I think the worst part of the abuse I face is:  enjoying the challenge.

Questions to Ponder Perspective (Seven of Pentacles)

Why does he get such satisfaction out of being aggressively rude and obnoxious?

He is such a pushy mouthy low-rent dude:  Why do I want him?

Why does he enjoy harassing people when he is drunk/high?

I guess he wants it all and will do any deviate and evil thing to get it.

I guess we gotta do something about those greedy evildoers.

Sooo,  does he enjoy being an obnoxious deviate?

Is the worst part when I enjoyed his hissyfit?

So,  am I ugly?  –  that is the last thing I want or will let happen.

I wished a bad thing on him,  I guess he is confronted with it now.

Now,  Part Two,

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

 *Go to Meanings and Illustrations: Observation of the Spread 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.

 *Go to Meanings and Illustrations: Individual Rider Waite Tarot Cards. 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 intuitively see yourself how Tarot Verbatim ™ works.

 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. http://emilysinsight.com.)


Nine of Cups  –  Seven of Pentacles  –  Seven of Wands




Wow!  This is different.  This was fun to type up,  quick too.  Starting with  “Your wish is granted,”  (Every deck I know of has this meaning for Nine of Cups.),  we go to Seven of Pentacles which is wondering and figuring things out,  pondering.


Then come two cards that  –  especially when combined  –  mean a knock-down,  drag-out battle involving defense and something extreme.  Now we got a story going!  –  some kind of nasty battle,  because Devil is  ‘most anything nasty,  ugly,  evil … you know,  a devil of a time?

I see this as an awakening to the joy of combat of a soul who valued peace to the point of cowardice.  Girls are like that a lot of the time,  those of us who aren’t overtly bloodthirsty?



Nine of Cups,  as I said,  means  “Your wish is granted”  in just about any self-respecting Tarot deck.  The illustration evokes that Thanksgiving  ‘I et the whole thing’  feeling.  It shows a chubby fella with a big grin,  nine empty cups he drained.  Bet you can guess,  from the grin,  what was in them?  So Nine of Cups also means greed,  excess,  consumerism,  satiety,  gluttony,  pigging out … but not today.


Seven of Pentacles Hmmm.  That’s what it means,  you know,  ‘Hmmm.’  He is pondering and wondering whether his cucumbers will produce a crop,  whether both genders of plant are present.


Seven of Wands Mad as hell,  he is,  and in someone’s face demanding his space.  The mouthy pushy adolescent of any age and gender,  obstreperous and obnoxious,  intrusive and loud.  But this Rider Waite Tarot card also embraces defending yourself,  defending your position,  defending a cause,  defending your space or turf.  So the  ‘mad as hell and won’t take it anymore’  can be justified or not.  Illustration shows just that:  someone defending his place from a number of intruders who think it’s theirs.


Devil stands for the concept that being attached to dark-side anything (things,  people,  substances,  concepts,  attitudes,  feelings) is voluntary;  your chains are loose.  Devil also refers to fear,  the enemy,  the problem,  nasty,  ugly,  rage,  killing,  hate,  perversions,  lust and the word  ‘hideous.’  but it doesn’t have to be a ‘bad card’;  it also can be about physical and about an attachment of one thing to another,  like papers clipped together.

    I’m a day late reading this, but wow! That was yesterday for me. These spreads have been scary accurate this week Em.

    • I have changed this week my way of doing the sentences. Modified the question a little, on a hunch, and emphasized what combinations of cards meant which themes in the sentences. Glad you read back when you miss a day. See, I think visitors ‘claim’ the theme and apply it (or reject it for a better choice) rather than the information applying only to one day.

  2. Thor

    I like this, but how can both my opponent & I get our wish to be victorious? Can we assume that I win because I follow your readings & he does not; or will he simply have a victory in another area of life unrelated to our conflict? How should I take this? Thanks in advance!

    • Sometimes when two guys fight they both either think they win, or they actually do. ‘Winning’ is a definition. But the reading here is for you, not that person.

      If “Do you really want this nasty fight? – you will win.” is what you refer to, yes, it refers to you winning a fight you think of in relation to the message.

      If this is important enough that you want particulars, give me a call and we will go into it. The short way is the question “How pleased will I be with the outcome?”

    Emily, I love reading your daily spread. What a fun way to learn about the meaning of various cards. But I have to say that I stopped mid-chew when I got to the line about resisting addictions and cravings. I was just eating chocolate fudge — thankfully, it’s a think thin high protein bar. But still.

    Anyway, I love the idea of standing up to the downside, of fighting the dark.

    • Mid-chew, huh. Would it help to know chocolate is the ONLY rich source of magnesium, the most vital mineral, that runs our heart, brain and bones?

      Tell your friends that! It is true. Especially if you read from the bottom up.

      Yeah, I really love that slogan. It should be on a tee shirt.

  4. eileen

    Ha!!! Well I like this:) Thank you~

  5. Tomorrow’s is about helping or being helped through the downside, and describes Dark Night of the Soul, a spiritual phase.

    We have been about this victory lately, haven’t we?

  6. Daily spread is right on the money! Love it=o)

    • It describes a good place to be: the warrior’s high.
      Glad to hear you are living at that address right now. Take a deep breath and enjoy that moment of victory and struggle.

  7. Anna

    Don’t know why the Seven of Wands has been showing up, I think i been feeling rather peaceful lately

    • Nine of Cups, your wish is granted, is right there with him. The struggle gave you exactly what you want, and you are feeling surfeited right now.

      • Anna

        Oops I spoke too soon…yes my wish was granted this afternoon and though I didn’t realize I was struggling the end result is worth it.
