Our Daily Spread for January 18, 2012 Wednesday©

Jan 18, 2012 by

Advice contrasts total involvement and disengaging entirely; being all for it or all against it.  It is about walking away from the scene you are part of as a member – like family, team, community, the values you currently reflect.  But it is also about not fighting it, not fighting with people, not being involved with people even, and not struggling to make the income that makes you ‘one of the good people of the community.’


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!

Five of Wands
Three of Wands – Eight of Cups – Ten of Cups






Family, Ten of Cups, is flanked on the left by Eight of Cups leaving (abandoning, getting out, dropping out early) and on the right by Five of Wands fighting (trying, making an effort, putting energy into, involved in activity). There’s our story.


The remaining card points to a continuing action and/or to the future. Three of Wands is often ‘will be’ or ‘continue to be.’ It refers to income, thus to ‘making a living’ and to ‘making money.’


Ten of Cups refers to marriage and community or group or even ‘people’ as well as to family. It is also ‘family values.’ It is ‘the good people’ in the sense of the respectable prosperous people who live in the good neighborhood, kind of like the ‘good’ of Hierophant. So Ten of Cups can be a church group, a gathering of the folks in the neighborhood or condominium, etc. Your ‘bad guys’ group is Ten of Pentacles; this is the ‘good guys’ group.






Three of Wands refers to continuing action and/or to the future. Three of Wands is often ‘will be’ or ‘continue to be.’ It refers to income, thus to ‘making a living’ and to ‘making money.’ Its illustration is a merchant who is watching the ships come in that carry his new merchandise and his coming profit.



Eight of Cups To heck with it, I’m outa here. Dropping out. Getting out of one and into another. Detour, change or correction of course. Leaving early. The union of the new and the full moon says it all, doesn’t it? – love that! His illustration shows a pilgrim (yes, tradition says that’s a person on a pilgrimage, a religious trip) changing his course because the terrain forces it.



Ten of Cups is marriage, family, the good people of the community, community life, wholesomeness, being happy and well-adjusted (hate that term!), getting together or togetherness. It is one of the cards that referss to children as well: a boy and a girl. Illustration is the ‘American Dream’: the house on the golf course, happy embracing couple, two happy kids, rainbow over Their Home. (No dog!)



Five of Wands suggests sweat! Getting all worked up about; putting energy into; trying hard; fighting or struggling; being averse or against; opposing with all your might. Getting involved, gung-ho. Conflict, combative, competition or compete or competitive. Aerobic exercise. Violence.

    Oh yeah, right on as usual! Fighting and not fighting all in the same breath, hemm.. ” yield rather than touch, touch rather than hit, hit rather than break, break reather than maim, maim rather than … Master Po, from the legendary “Kung Fu” t.v. series, early 70’s. Just one of the thoughts inspired by your asume spead! Blessings all around…………

    • Welcome back. Missed your poesy. That’s a good parallel you contributed. Don’t miss the 22nd. Incredible … methinks. It just kept growing.

    Yes I’m not going to struggle to make him behave, I’m going off in a different direction and looking to the future

    • That is sooo grown-up. The ‘make me be good mama’ gambit is a substitute for what we cow-humans see as a relationship. It culminates in what I call the bitch-brat relationship … often in marriage. Requiring the lover to voluntarily engage in meaningful exchanges counters that gambit. I am tired, I could have said this better earlier today.
