Our Daily Spread for December 3, 2011 Saturday ©

Dec 3, 2011 by

Advice We feel a natural sadness and regret when one chapter or phase of our existence ends and another is upon us.  It could be going to college or the ’empty nest’  or divorce or moving to another love relationship or the death of a spouse,  or even moving away from the neighborhood or selling a house.   Any old end of any old phase may evoke a primordial sadness that things do not go on,  they shift and change,  so we cannot stay the same person we are either.

(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!


Two of Pentacles –  Four of Wands –  Five of Cups


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

Marriage Perspective (Four of Wands)

Whatever happens,  marrying won’t be a terrible loss.

Not moping anymore since there could be a marriage.

There isn’t any more family.  What am I going to do?  I miss being family.

What a loss if __ does not go through with the wedding.

Will not fail to go through with the big wedding.

Ending one marriage after another,  you feel like a failure.

It’s a hell of a depressing marriage that just goes on without end.

Sorry the marriage ended that way,  but life goes on.

Mourning Family/Marriage/Community Loss (Four of Wands + Five of Cups)

Going through mourning a death in the family.

This death is one more loss for the community.

The phases of grief when you’re not a family anymore.

Working through grief when death ends a marriage.

Feeling bad that there doesn’t seem to be a family anymore.

This kind of shameful family life is not going to continue.

Family woes do not go on indefinitely.

Not letting the past haunt me,  but going on with a respectable family life.

The past is over,  and I am going on with my life with the people I am part of.

Real Estate Perspective,  Losing the House (Four of Wands + Five of Cups)

In the process of losing the house;  it’s not over yet.

Sorry __ can’t continue living in that house.

The building is not quite a total loss.

It’s not a good neighborhood,  it keeps going downhill.

You can’t lose,  there are no down cycles in high end estates.

Shameful Organization (Four of Wands + Five of Cups)

The organization has no shame about continuing.

Ashamed this agency causes one death after another.

Regrets not continuing to be a member of the (club/church/board, etc.).

I am ashamed the organization no longer does (that) regularly.

I ended it with those people,  it’s one thing after another that I am ashamed of.


Everybody is sad it’s not going to be this way anymore.

You can’t fail if you keep trying to be one of the good people of the town.

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.)


Two of Pentacles –  Four of Wands –  Five of Cups



The first thing I notice is  “Sorry”  and  “Not sorry.”  Death which means no-never-not-isn’t (or any negative word) + Five of Cups which can mean sorry.  A further potential for a bunch of contradictory meanings is the ‘ongoing continuing’  category of meanings for Two of Pentacles.  So you can be sorry continually,  not sorry,  not continually sorry or continually not sorry … and that is a sloppy list that causes cross-eyedness of the mind.


Next thing is that the card labeled Death does not have that primary meaning but is a support card for the subject … and here is  ‘mourning’  in Five of Cups.  So mourning a death.  Right next to that is Four of Wands:  family,  community,  marriage or spouse,  couple,  wedding.  (We are not having fun here.)

And of course we also don’t have an action card.


Two of Pentacles depicts a juggler in a silly costume dancing while he juggles two balls (pentacles) that are connected by the sign that means continuing indefinitely in math (the ‘eternity’  symbol),  while ships are tossed on big waves behind him.  Here we have all kinds of movement:  up and down,  ’round and  ’round,  back and forth and wobbly.  The most common meaning is continuing,  keeping up something,  ongoing.  Next is unstable and silly.  Then the movements.


Four of Wands The society wedding is a community event.  Leading houses are united in marriage.  Family,  respectable family,  moneyed families.  Headquarters,  organizations of any type:  club,  university,  board,  governmental agencies.  It means neighborhood and even country.


Five of Cups  “I wish to God I’d never …”  Regret,  sorry,  failure,  melancholy,  haunted by the past.  Loss,  and being the loser.  Ignoring the full cups and being haunted by the ones you spilled.  A black robed figure mourns the past and feels the failure.


Death The Great Negator,  I call it.  It seldom introduces the idea of death but is a support card for it if another Rider Waite Tarot card that refers to the topic appears.  Five of Cups is mourning,  so now Death can refer to a death.  Illustration shows the passing of the crown when the king dies.  It’s the ‘The king is dead,  long live the king’  thing.  In Tarot Verbatim,  this card most often puts a negative modifier on a surrounding card.

  1. Brittney

    He was definitley sorry! He came over and his eyes had a saddness to them. He thought he was going to get in the coockie jar. That didnt happen. However I did send him on his way with his jolly stick, not so jolly…LMAO!!!

  2. Lori

    I find this spread to be dead on, I am trying to focus on the not moping because there could be a marriage aspect….

    • Wow. This is so right for all of you. I always have a sigh within me when I type one of these mostly sad ones … thinking of spoiling the day of visitors to my drawing room here.

      So Lori, I extend my sympathy even as I am gratified at Tarot’s talents here.

      Tomorrow is another day. A better day, we hope.

  3. madhu

    Emily this is exactly how I have been feeling for a couple of weeks now! specially today…….

    • This spread evokes how all of you are feeling. Tarot is reflecting the lives of the group like I thought it would. Hope when the messages are more on the cheerful side that that also reflects the feelings you all have.

  4. Anna

    Yes, I am sad too a relationship has ended

    • I know, Anna.
      Sometimes you just have to live long enough to get over it. After 15 years, this is so far the only anniversary of my husband’s killing that I have not ‘counted down’ days.

  5. FCP

    I’ve been feeling a kind of blah the last day or so over the loss of a relationship. It hasn’t ended so much as it has changed and shifted (like you mention in the advice) in a way that makes me sad.

    The Two of Pentacles card really stands out for me, as I always described this relationship as a horrible roller coaster ride that we can’t get off of no matter how hard we both try.

    • This spread describes that winter blah melancholy mood. Sometimes we long to go back to a place that we moved from or were moved from, and that place isn’t there any more.

      Roller coaster for the Two of Pentacles. I forgot about that. Yes, it certainly does mean that. Sometimes you just have to live through things, like grief.

  6. Gbb

    Emily your explanation of the 5of cups card is right on target for me. Also, there was a death of a close friend’s grandmother yesterday, -dec 2nd- the day you read this spread. Very eerie that that came true.

    • Sorry to hear about that.
      That is a particularly good description of that card.
      Yes, the Tarot messages refer to the day they are posted.
      May there be better days.
      I am putting up on Facebook a page called Three Six Nine Twelve Club.
      Three Six Nine Twelve Club is supporting all the members whenever you think of it at the quarters of the clock (3, 6, 9 and 12 o’ clock a.m. and p.m.). There is a video on the Tarot Verbatim page and on the beginning of the Three Six Nine Twelve page.
