Advice Here we parallel a power struggle between people with developing character, which is a power struggle within.  Watching a skilled people-person handle a challenging situation is educational for a novice, isn’t it?  He sees a woman poised to lay hands on whatever stands between her and having money of her own.  That’s you with your hands over the lion’s mouth there;  assert your abilities to do this.


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.


Ability to Overcome (Strength + Queen of Pentacles)


See yourself as a person who does have the resources to quash any opposition.

A bad attitude is a resource you use to overcome opposition within yourself.

That’s you with your hands over the lion’s mouth there, assert your abilities to do this.

A woman who personally knows about bullies coaches your success in overcoming.

He sees a woman poised to lay hands on whatever stands between her and having money of her own.

You can feel it when you possesses an intimidating influence.

I learn how to handle challenging situations by watching others who have that skill do it.

He/She knows how to capitalize on opposition.

Practice your people skills on smart alecs, they’re a good study.

Nobody intimidates her, she knows how to mother them.


Man-Woman Power Struggles (Five of Swords + Strength)


She has the ability to be in control of her situation. He has the idea to control her.

She finesses the field with her abilities: He feels like beating her at that.

He knows what a snarly dude he is; feels she has the ability to tame him until he purrs.

He feels he would have been an overbearing boor were it not for Mother’s discipline.

He has the idea to keep her in her place and she has the ability to keep him in his.

He has figured out her possessive motherliness is her way of keeping him from getting the best of her.

Sees himself about to be taken foul advantage of by a lady who has exactly what he wants: the ability to handle anything that takes advantage of her.

These women get the best of ya, they got what you want and they know just how to get you under their thumb and make ya like it.

They are an evenly match pair, both domineering, and that is what he wants in a woman.

You can see how she gets the best of people to take the reward for herself.

She is skilled at high risk investment, she knows how to beat the system.

You can see how her assertive skills deflate men with the same approach.

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.)

Page of Pentacles
Five of Swords – Strength – Queen of Pentacles





There’s an obvious power struggle when you see Five of Swords, the bully (intimidation), the person who takes (thieves) and takes advantage (of friends) along with Strength, the person (or woman) who straightens out wannabe bullies and has an intimidating influence.


This duo is followed up with the Queen of Pentacles woman who has skill, talent and ability to handle her man’s assets, who is a backer or coach of another, who has money of her own, and/or who is possessive and maybe a matriarch; and followed up with the Page of Pentacles fellow who watches, feels, studies, is interested in – who is often an apprentice or student.


Queen of Pentacles unevens the power struggle between Five of Swords and Strength: She is a resource, a coach – so her skill makes it ‘two women against one’ since Page of Pentacles is an onlooker.






Five of Swords has stolen the weapons of his friends (along with their lands or inheritance by feudal custom) by pretending their sparring was a real battle. Ripping off and betraying and stinging people who trusted him, who are friends: That is he! The bully, wiseass, wiseacre, smart alec, the ‘Ive got mine’ businessman. He carries the Cheney smirk as his insignia.
Strength finesses opposition. She has that touch that makes the predator purr in her presence. It’s about character and/or spiritual mastery. Strength is more about that mastery than about a woman: The finesse can be accomplished by fellows as well as gals. The symbol above her head, the white robe with its garland, are indications of the character, the spiritual superiority.
Queen of Pentacles Skilled. She runs her man’s business or his assets, maybe keeps his books. She has money of her own and is a materialistic and possessive person. She can be witchy (See the goat’s head carvings on her throne and the funky horns on her hat?). This is a wise and sensible but passionate lady, the Italian matriarch ‘type.’
Page of Pentacles checks things out, thinks and feels about things. A people-watcher, a young self-conscious fellow quite often. Can be a girl too, as all pages can. This Rider Waite Tarot card stands for ‘you,’ for a view of a situation (anyone’s), for an image or a role as well. Pictured is a well-dressed young man contemplating his Pentacle with a thoughtful expression.

    Yep, I’m in a man-woman power struggle. Have been for a while. We’re seeing who goes the longest without calling the other, apparently.

    • In a way, it’s a waste, but there comes a time you have to make a stand. Women are at a disadvantage, usually, in this situation because they are more social, more likely to ‘see the other person’s side, and less stubborn. This is why “Bitches get the best men” – not because they started out with the better man, but because they conditioned the dude to do less of what displeases them by being just as stubborn.

      I think this began with Adam and Eve (who of course were primates?).

  2. Me

    Been off-line for a few days.
    I see the power struggle …not just for money!

    • Thank you for that report. If only we humans were not mammals there would be fewer power struggles. May you find a compromise that is comfortable there.

    Yep, this was me today finessing a situation
