Our Daily Spread for January 17, 2012 Tuesday©

Jan 17, 2012 by

Advice How like a business deal is a relationship. It it looks perfect, it may be a disaster waiting to happen. Sometimes the biggest loss is something we capitalize on fortuitously. Without a meeting of the minds about the terms of it, either is likely to fail. Doing your part is the main divide between success and failure … or other parties doing their part. A terrible disappointment may be the main ingredient that turns a relationship successful.



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!

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




Sexual Relationship (Ace of Wands + Three of Pentacles)



Relationships with the perfect sex are the ones that fall through.

Sex was perfect but the relationship was humiliating.

Relationships are sure to fail to be perfect!

Hurt feelings in a relationship motivate me to have a successful one.

Having failed in that relationship, I must make this the best one ever.

Fails to have the absolutely perfect relationship.

Meeting for sex successfully, and then feeling terrible about it.

Hurting over a failed relationship, things have to get better.

Perfect sex in a terrible relationship.

Perfect relationship with terrible sex.



Business Perspective: (1) Win or Lose (Ace of Pentacles + Ten of Swords)



Win or lose, we’ve got to be in business.

A business that must make a lot of money or fail.

This is a business that is either the highest profit or the worst loss.

Sell at the highest price or you are sure to lose badly.

Total loser deals are the ones that look the best.

Capitalizing on the loss was the very best deal.

Make sure you have a contract: That’s the difference between the best and the worst result.

Negotiate between the highest and the lowest price.

The highest-priced real estate deals fall through.

The difference between success an failure is one big contract/deal.



Business Perspective: (2) Deals Fail (Ten of Swords + Three of Pentacles)



When the money is the only consideration, the deal fails.

Have to get together with the parties who put up the money, or the deal fails.

Lost all that money in one deal.

This fails to be the highest-profit business, but we are doing it together.

Agreeing to the highest price is a disaster.

This financial transaction is a sure loser.

Having to put out money for this real estate contract is a huge loss.

You agreed to pay, so you have to suffer.

Invest all your money in one deal, you lose.

You were absolutely right that their business would fail.

First priority is to deliver the goods as agreed; otherwise, you fail.



Business Perspective (3) Have to Make Money (Ace of Wands + Ace of Pentacles)



You force a profit even though they fail to do their part.

To raise the money, we have to sell the real estate at a loss.

When (I) was so broke, this one deal put money in my hand.

Three of Pentacles
Ace of Wands – Ace of Pentacles – Ten of Swords




First thing that springs to mind glancing at the four Tarot citizens at the table here: Success (Ace of Pentacles) and Failure (Ten of Swords). The best and the worst, profit and loss, having it in your hand and losing it, being a winner or a loser.

So Three of Pentacles fits right in. Relationship of any kind; a deal, contract, agreement or meeting. The other member of our panel here, Ace of Wands, is about how important something is and having to do it. It is also the ‘sexual’ of the sexual relationship.






Ace of Wands Must and most is a good way to remember its primary meanings. Often, it puts an ‘est’ on a word, as in ‘highest-priced’ or ‘highest profit’ for Ace of Wands with Ace of Pentacles. Absolutely is one of its favorite words. Primacy and assertion meanings arise from the hand with a club in it, a sprouting club that looks like a penis.



Ace of Pentacles Welcome to the table, ‘Money in Hand.’ This is profit today, and success. ‘Right’ is its favorite word. Under the hand cradling the payoff is the right path beginning in lilies (purity) and ending in roses (victory).



Ten of Swords You don’t have to guess the meaning of this Rider Waite Tarot card: failure, suffering, death or killing, humiliation and ignominy. Lying on the ground with swords in his back is the illustration. Set here next to success and profit, it means failure and loss.



Three of Pentacles The general contractor demonstrates to his clients that the cathedral is built according to blueprint. Their meeting is about his final settlement that they will agree to per the contract. Three of Pentacles comes up for real estate transactions and closings as well as meetings, contracts, agreements and any kind of relationship. It is about each doing his part fair and square. It is about settling differences sometimes too.

    The relationship advice is once again very accurate. Perfect sex in a terrible relationship. You got that right! New guy has entered the picture though. I’m excited to see where it may go.

    • I’ve been there. The ‘Mother Nature’ bond that arises when two people of opposite gender are opposite genetically is powerful. It tends to create obsessive relationships … just can’t stay broke up. Quite often that is the ‘terrible relationship with great sex.’ Mother Nature sees to it the sex is great. What’s in it for her is healthy babies. (She hasn’t noticed we have enough babies?)

      The signature of this relationship is: You smell sooo good to each other.

  2. Lori

    Hurt feelings in a relationship motivate me to have a successful one.
    Having failed in that relationship, I must make this the best one ever.

    As always, great way to start my day, thanks Emily!

    • Thank you, Lori. I am mindful of the use visitors make of this work. This blog is like a coffeehouse!

      Being mindful of that is leading me to discard some entries when they prove to be persistently about news and political issues. My question is “Give visitors information that is meaningful to them, and these things (I feel) aren’t. Today’s was about crooked bankers and politicians make graft. I don’t see that that is of any value to you guys.

      Does anybody think otherwise? Do you want to read that (here, too)?

  3. Aquillah

    Today, I have the first of two (a phone) interviews with a funeral home. A positive take on a scary card (10 of swords).

    • That IS interesting, Aquillah. The two aces that are left after you use 3 of Pentacles for the meeting and 10 of swords for the funeral home, indicate you have to succeed, money in hand for sure …

      Let us know how it goes.

  4. Relationship advise…. right on the money…. Like always Emily
