Our Daily Spread January 26, 2012 Thursday©

Advice How normal differences are! – and people can settle them rationally and peaceably by getting together and explaining themselves.   Whether it’s love or business or family or the larger human groups.   We are speaking of peaceful combat, which is what sports and courts of law try to be. We suggest a mentality of being very direct with our truth in order to engage the other side in settlement.   That’s a good way to fight, we are saying here.

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 Pentacles – Star






Our Tarot panelists have met here in your mind for a rational discussion about differences, about struggle, about issues of competition and combativeness.  These four belong together:  Their message is unified and cogent.  It is the same message whether it is applied to lovers or business.  Noteworthy, though, is the fact that three of the four refer (or can refer) to religion:  Three of Pentacles is in a cathedral;  Star can be an ablution (ritual cleansing);  and Hermit shows a monk.


Five of Wands, our central or ‘star’ card, is fighting, struggling, competition or combat – or trying hard.  Its core is energy engaged – usually with other people, but it can mean activity or exercise too, or even just trying hard, a big effort.  It can also mean averse or against or opposition.


Today the Five of Wands expenditure of energy refers to:  (1) a meeting to settle things, Three of Pentacles, which is also relationship or business deal or meeting;   (2) Star, talking, explaining, spilling your guts, expressing, being in love, feeling so good, being healthy;   (3) Hermit, rational look and examination of the facts, helping others, old man, coming to or traveling to, patient, peaceable, supportive friend (or just friend).


So today’s story is about how normal differences are, and people can settle them rationally and peaceably by getting together and explaining themselves.







Five of Wands illustrates its meaning well. Five fellows going at one another with big boards means fighting, struggling, competition or combat – or trying hard. Its core is energy engaged – usually with other people, but it can mean activity or exercise too, or even just trying hard, a big effort. It can also mean averse or against.
Three of Pentacles in Rider Waite pictures a final inspection of a building (a cathedral) by an architect. His largest payment is the final one, so this is a business deal, and it is about real estate. They are coming to a meeting of minds about the blueprint having been followed. They are settling up. The card comes up for any meeting of three people, and for a relationship of any kind.

Star shows a female singing or performing in an outdoor bath, feeling good. It may be an ablution (ritual cleansing). Singing in the shower. Star means talking, explaining, spilling your guts, expressing, being in love, feeling so good, being healthy, being optimistic and having faith. Also being in love and confessing love.
Hermit Here we have a monk going out with a light in the cold dark night to look for travelers who could use his help. He is the helpful kind peaceable patient friend, a supportive person. He is looking for and carrying a light, so the meaning of Hermit is rational look and examination of the facts, helping others, old man, coming to or traveling to, patient, peaceable, supportive friend (or just friend).

    I am trying hard to let him go and move om emotionally from him. I want to be done.

    • Hangover, huh? Hair of the dog? Or getting involved in something engrossing both physically and mentally. A car repair class. A welding class for making furniture – something challenging both mentally and physically. Distraction. (Join the army!)
