Advice The interplay of the respectable and the shadowy end of things is our story. We reflect artfully how the respectable and the shadow shade off into one another with all the appropriate graces for the public arena to reflect upon. Ever notice how even the most evil corporate gnomes genuflect in the general direction of what is acceptable to Mama Bear and Papa Bear? Was it the French philosopher Montaigne who said “Hypocrisy is the homage vice renders to virtue?” Some genius said that.

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 Cards 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!



High Priestess
Four of Wands – Ten of Pentacles – Queen of Wands


Tell the visitors here something useful and meaningful to them.



The Dysfunctional and the Respectable House (Four of Wands + Ten of Pentacles)


Her own home is orderly but she has nothing to do with those relatives’ homes.

She runs her house her way and lets the neighbors be their dysfunctional selves.

She and her mother each has her own (different) house.

Her family is the opposite of her mother’s family: it’s the difference between laissez faire and law and order.

Her world is so straight and regimented; the woman she works with is very quiet about her own complicated life.

Being the wife is very upfront and orderly; being the other woman is a lot more complex.

She is the straight one who is a member of society; sister is in a group home.

She keeps her dysfunctional life secret; she is a respectable married woman now.

She is the straight one who is a member of society; sister is in a group home.

These large old estates are where the two women live as neighbors.

The respectable matriarch of the family keeps the mob connection classified.


The Respectable Company’s Secrets (Four of Wands + High Priestess)


She is a manager of her own branch, she does not involve herself with the foreign staffs.

This is an public organization of practical women, and there’s a lot of politics behind the scenes.

These two women know one another’s circle of acquaintances from the ghetto to the boardroom.

The company’s trouble is kept secret from the public sector by the manager of it.

The inner sanctum of the organization is very political; she runs a practical division.

The public meeting is her bailiwick; the private meetings are where power is brokered.

She is competent to run this department, and is privy to some other divisions’ secrets.

She does have expertise in applying the company policies to the daily operations



Now, Part Two,

Do you want to know a little, or a lot, about how this Tarot Verbatim ™ thing works? If so,

*Go to 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 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.)



High Priestess
Four of Wands

– Ten of Pentacles – Queen of Wands




The interplay of the respectable and the shadowy end of things is our story. We have two women – Queen of Wands who is the Mama and wife who runs an orderly house and/or manages a very upfront business. She is paired with Four of Wands (Those two cards are marriage and wife.) which is the public and society end of things – the respectable folks who run the town/world.


Then we have High Priestess who has secret knowledge, stays over there by herself and is quiet. She can be The Other Woman. She is paired with the dysfunctional family (either ghetto-poor or mob-rich).


The two family cards also mean houses, and two houses with two women suggest neighbors, female relatives, or female friends who know one anther’s circle of acquaintances. Ten of Pentacles can be a halfway house, hospital, treatment center, etc. The spread also contrasts an orderly and a disordered household.




Four of Wands is home, house, family, is the respectable people, especially the respectable people of public life. It’s the straight and regimented end of things, the upfront and orderly stuff that members of society, especially the respectable married ones, publicly espouse. It’s a public organization such as a university or hospital, or anything’s headquarters. A wedding of political families is pictured.
Ten of Pentacles is home, house, family, is the not-so-respectable people, including the not-so-respectable people of public life. It’s the dysfunctional, complicated or complex end of things … the mob connection of the respectable community politicians, it’s the politics behind the scenes where power is brokered. It’s also the ghetto and a company in trouble. A family quarrel between a couple and engineered by grandfather is pictured.
Queen of Wands  Well, here’s wife and mother, the woman who runs the place and sees that people in the home or work place do what they are supposed to. She is orderly, it’s her house, she is one of those straight and regimented clean people – the respectable matriarch, even. The practical woman is her basic meaning, and she has her turf and is competent … has expertise in its daily operation. Pictured is the alert woman whose posture is upright, a flower in one hand and a big stick in the other.
High Priestess  One of the esoteric cards, the feminine principle (of being receptive or passive on the physical plane and active on mental and spiritual planes). Commonly, she is the lady and the other woman, but today, tied in as she is with this complex, she is the ‘other’ in a different way: she has nothing to do with, lets the neighbors, is in her different house, laissez faire, very quiet about her own complicated life, keeps her dysfunctional life secret, keeps the connection classified, is the foreign, behind the scenes inner sanctum. Women know, is privy to secrets, has the expertise behind the scenes.

    Thanks for this. It fit today well. I was talking with a friend, and it’s hard to know, say if I genuinely like somebody or my subconscious is using them and I don’t know it. I thought I genuinely liked a guy once – but after he helped clean up a problem, he started smelling bad to me and I couldn’t even sit next to him. When I met him, I really thought I was in love. He was nothing but sweet to me and my daughter. Nobody else could “smell” anything, just me. I don’t trust myself anymore when it comes to these things.

  2. brittney

    I am the High Priest, I do have my own complicated secrets and private life, I also see some of the Queen of Wands traits within myself—practical, and orderly.

  3. win

    Nice mind twisting poety. I think not being full awake helped in understanding. Low and behold, a great(?) day before us.

    • I ENJOYED THE CONCEPT. Tomorrow’s is along the same lines: The interplay on the physical plane between the masculine and feminine esoteric principles. Rather deep and (I think) amusing.
