Our Daily Spread for January 5,Thursday 2012 ©

Jan 5, 2012 by

Advice today concerns the role of chaos in setting things straight.  Chaos is self-limiting, we suggest, because it must reach the yuk point,  and when it crosses that line,  the berserk factor is removed or leaves,  thereby benefiting the very world it would have wrecked.  This process is a summary of every novel written.  It happens within us too,  as we ‘realize we have gone too far.’  This realization sometimes has a tinge of humor to it   –  ya think? The courtroom is not free of the same process.


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!

Six of Swords

Seven of Wands – Seven of Cups – Justice


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


Eventually the Mess will be Over (Seven of Cups + Six of Swords)

In due time this mess will be straightened out that I am overwhelmed by now.

I am besieged by stuff I don’t understand but it will make sense after I get into it.

Acting out uncontrollably phases him out of the sane world.

Whoa! I am going away to normal country, things are falling apart here.

Before you get out of here, I am going to straighten out the confusion, like it or not.

The punk who wreaked havoc leaves before you straighten him out.

You should force your way out before you fall to pieces.

All kinds of things prevent me from just moving out of here like I should do.

Things get better when the obstreperous person goes overboard and the police come to straighten things out.


Insanity in the Courtroom (Seven of Cups + Justice)

Forced to deal with a legal miasma he left behind.

This lawsuit is out of control, and there’s no way to get out of it.

Shocked that the judge barred his withdrawal from the case.

He insists on a continuance of the case senselessly.

Heading Toward Rehab (Justice + Six of Swords)

Our crazy days are over; we are forced into sanity.

Leaving is the right move, I have stirred people up against me.

We raised so much hell we broke things and the police came and took us away.

We should put these crazy times behind us, we have to.

He should have left when he was hollering gibberish.

He insists he is entitled to all these things for no reason: He is on his way out.

He should be getting out of here, but he is irrational raising hell.

This episode is one too many bad dreams, I should move on with my life.

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:  Learn Tarot by Observing 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 in your mind to make the message.

*Go to Meanings and Illustrations:  Learn Tarot by the Pictures.  It is what each of the four cards,  by itself,  has to say.  It shows you 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.)

Six of Swords

Seven of Wands – Seven of Cups – Justice




The centerpiece here is Seven of Cups, which means out of control, messed up, confusion, senseless, falling apart, bad dream, wrecked, ruined, havoc, chaos.


To its left is the mouthy punk, the way being blocked, insisting forcefully (or raising hell about) and intrusion into the life and property of another. To the right is straightening out, sanity, normal, and anything about the law (police, courts, lawyers, courtroom proceedings, etc.) Above is leaving this scene for a better one.


So our theme is things coming to a head because the pendulum has reached the maximum point of out-of-control crazy messes and has to swing the other way. Notice there is nothing about hitting bottom and having a salvation epiphany: No, it is the situation itself that causes travel here that ends the miasma.




Seven of Wands Much of what Seven of Wands stands for is a good advertisement for birth control. We all know him, and everyone is him … has to be him … every so often. How he doth protest, the mouthy adolescent, how much hell a punk raises. The kind of people who shove others around and rob them. But it also stands for blocking the way of the intruder-invader. It means to defend oneself as well. Which is interesting because every bully I ever met pictured himself as the one who is put-upon and deprived of privileges. Pictured is a person who got out of bed in his underwear to defend his land against some neighbors we have all encountered ourselves.


Seven of Cups The demons are out, let loose upon us. Things are way out of control. We are confronted with a situation that doesn’t have a handle, a bad dream, insanity. Its illustration is the Sorcerer’s Apprentice story or Pandora’s Box story: the spirits are all over the place and unidentified, and there you are in the wrong place at just that time.


Justice What’s a nice card like you doing in a place like this? Well, to do what Justice always does: straighten it out. This Rider Waite Tarot card in Tarot Verbatim ™ often contributes the word ‘should.’ It speaks of a nice normal sane existence. Love its picture.


Six of Swords Things get better. As they always do when the obstreperous person goes berserk and the police come to straighten things out. All’s well that ends well here: They have come to take (him) away. The ship with the loser in it is sailing off, and the story has a kind of happy ending.

  1. That would help me move on…. if he left the country! But I know what I must do. Walk away and worry about number 1 (myself) I have a plate full of my own that needs my immediate attention!

    • Dig in! Move him out of the country in your mind. Use the Six of Swords as the template for the memory of his red tail lights. (If I redid the illustration of Six of Swords in modern style, it would be red tail lights.

    One of my favorites, and seems so true for me today.
    “Chaos is self limiting … because it must reach the yuk point”.
    Kinda funny (and a little sad).
    Thanks Emily.

    • I grinned when I typed that one. Love it. The Yuk Point is always a factor. It helps to remember it. Thank you for appreciating the slogan.

  3. Lori

    In due time this mess will be straightened out that I am overwhelmed by now.
    This episode is one too many bad dreams, I should move on with my life.

    Could any word be more appropriate for me? As I pack up the rest of my things and move to the condo, it can feel and be so overwhelming-but like a good friend who is helping me said, its only temporary.

    Thank you Emily!

    • Oh yeah. When I got all upset about something when I was a kid, Father would say “Either you will die of it or get over it. Either way, a hundred years from now you won’t even remember it.” (“So shut up already,” he meant.)

  4. Sonja

    Two of these definitely relate to me: In due time this mess will be straightened out that I am overwhemed by now, and: All kinds of things prevent me from just moving out of here like I should do. Very true. Thanks Emily for all you do!

    • You’re welcome for that. And as always I really appreciated feedback when messages connect. Tell your friends, share the page, and check out the Facebook pages if you do Facebook. These are things that encourage people to call me. “Feed the Elk.” That is what you can do for me.

      It is sometimes so hard to leave a town, isn’t it? – and we feel the need to. I remember, when I was young and single, deciding to ‘blow town.’ I got on the phone for half a day, chose from several job offers, and started packing. It’s not always that easy.
