Our Daily Spread for December 17, 2011 Saturday©

Dec 17, 2011 by

Advice The contemplative person takes action.   Inspired insight occurs to the active person.   These two things create a balance.  Thought without action is as impotent as action without thought.  Activity on the spiritual plane depletes the physical body of energy but produces informed and inspired action.  Mental work depletes the body of energy too,  but produces the great inspired idea about what to do.  In the same way,  awareness you need money inspires you to activity!  Flashes of spiritual realization occur when you exhaust yourself.

(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 Group Analytical Tarot Reading below.  One or more of those sentences has something to say to you.  Intuitively pick those out and decide whether to encourage or suppress them.  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!


High Priestess –  Five of Pentacles –  Hanged Man



GROUP ANALYTICAL TAROT READING Tell the visitors here something useful and meaningful to them.

Romantic Perspective

It strikes him he is not doing enough for the lady.

Knowing his lady needs money,  he realizes what he must do.

Realizing she is feeling left out,  he takes action.

His intuition is,  he does not have enough money to make it with this classy lady.

She has an aha moment that he is making himself miserable.

He gets it that,  when he does that,  it hurts her feelings deeply.

A eureka experience:  She knows why he is doing that,  and it sickens her.

She knows he does that because he sorely lacks insight.

He senses how tired she gets of him doing that.

He realizes she gets depressed about doing that herself.

Spiritual Perspective (High Priestess + Hanged Man)

An acute awareness on the spiritual plane numbs you to acting on the physical plane.

Psychic awareness on the spiritual plane leaves you too tired to get anything done.

When he does deep mental activity,  it drains him to exhaustion.

Flashes of spiritual realization when he exhausts himself.

Not Enough,  Need,  Lack,  Tired,  Depleted (Five of Pentacles)

Is aware what to do when she needs money.

Inkling he lacks the research to get this done.

Inspiration about what you don’t know enough about to make this happen.

Deja vu: When she does that she makes herself miserable.

Mental activity is mental energy at the expense of the body’s energy.

Realizes being sedentary makes you tired, and gets doing something.

Sitting tires you out and gives you the idea to go do something.

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.

High Priestess –  Five of Pentacles –  Hanged Man




A convergence of High Priestess with Hanged Man –  spiritual and mental acute awareness,  spiritual insight, visionary wisdom.  A convergence of High Priestess and Magician –  the female principle and the male principle.  Trapped in between is Dark Night of the Soul,  exhaustion,  being drained.  (And of course Magician stands in as acting upon the awareness or insight.)  Whew!


But not to worry,  we found some romantic applications for these four too.


The feminine principle is receptivity,  knowing and knowingness,  wisdom and occult/spiritual expertise.  (Knowing without acting) The masculine principle is activity –  to do,  to make,  to bring down or bring about.  (Acting without knowing) Occult gospel is that these two principles get together and create an entity that connects to the next plane down,  and a whole nest of triangles represents …  I guess all that is.  Anyway,  that is what the whole feminine and masculine principle thing is,  and it’s the big underlying foundational assumption of occultism,  as far as I know.  (Someday I will read up more thoroughly on it.)


Anyway,  we have a message that is about knowing and awareness and insight all over the place,  even (of course) in the romantic messages because half the cards are that.





High Priestess The  ‘B’  and  ‘J’  pillars stand for justice and mercy that represent extremes in the Kaballah ideology from the Jewish tradition.  She knows all,  is wise,  and is not engaged in activity.  So she means  ‘she,’  a single woman or woman by herself.  She comes up as a lady or classy lady and as a sedentary woman or bookkeeper (the book in her lap).  She represents an expert or expertise,  research,  and also the spiritual plane itself.  Contemplative.  It’s embarrassing how often this Rider Waite Tarot card just means  ‘she.’


Five of Pentacles Numb with despair,  they say,  and this is it.  Homeless and so out-of-it that they pass unknowingly by a place (cathedral) that has shelter for them.   Dark Night of the Soul,  a stage of spiritual development that recurs.  The core idea is depletion,  doing without,  not having enough (being broke) as well as being sick,  feeling sick,  feeling self-pity.  Here are the phrases it produces today:

not enough

needs money

feeling left out

not enough money


hurts her feelings deeply

sickens her

sorely lacks

how tired she gets



too tired to get anything done

drains him to exhaustion


lack the

don’t ___ enough

at the expense of


tires you

Hanged Man The experience that,  yes,  you knew that.  Duh!  It produces that disoriented upside-down feeling.  Realize is the most common word for Hanged Man.  Here are some others from today’s messages:

It strikes him



his intuition is,

aha moment

He gets it

eureka experience


senses how

acute awareness

psychic awareness

deep mental

spiritual realization

is aware



Deja vu

Mental activity

gives you the idea

Magician takes initiative,  takes action,  makes it happen,  does.  He is the one who does (it).  Action as opposed to contemplation.  The male way.  He is pictured in the act of making something happen,  the tools of the magician’s trade on the table there.  This card often means any form of the verbs  ‘do’  and  ‘make.’

    sounds like our last reading…

    The hang man and magician cards are the hardest card spreads to relate to in my life. I think this spread is saying I realize I put myself out in the cold with relation to my friend. Or maybe she realizes she put herself out in the cold with me. Whatever the case I really want to move on but things are really moving in slow motion.

    • Choices sometimes come with side effects. Remember grammar school when if you were friends with Jean you had to hate Gloria?
      I have been pondering lately on how humans are herd mammals, and herd mammals do not think individually. They think the way the other ones think. This is what creates the “If I’m republican I have to be against abortion” mentality.
      Hanged man is realizing
      Magician is acting on it

      • Liz

        Now *that* is a great interpretation! Thanks! Liz – when can I call you>?

        • I live in Mountain Time and work from noon to midnight plus an hour on each side. Good thing I enjoy my work, huh? So call just about any time (7 days a week).

    loves me? Let TarotVerbatim.com think like a guy for you and explain; it has 5,000 years experience making sense of men’s actions.

    Hi, guys! I am writing Facebook ads to raise some elk, if you know what I mean. Duh, it occurred to me to put them here. Just wrote ten. This one is my pet because women are always and forever asking this one question.
