Advice You don’t have to pay attention. Even if it is Lover Boy or Lover Girl, you don’t owe undivided attention just because a stimulus is in front of you. Some stimuli we should sleep through, you know? A ringing phone goes unanswered: That is an answer! Inner peace is a useful tool to disconnect yourself and be ‘elsewhere’ when the doorbell rings and it’s the neighbor’s kids again. Sometimes Inside is the place to be.

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!






Four of Swords
Seven of Wands – Four of Cups – Lovers


Tell the visitors here something useful and meaningful to them.


Remaining with the One you Love (Lovers + Four of Swords)


Cannot resist remaining with the person I love.

Cannot resist, I am still in love.

We are still together; I don’t listen when (he) gets on his soapbox.

I’m not pushy, I just let our love relationship be.

When I can’t defend my position, I just don’t do anything … that’s love.

Not going to get in his/her face about it, just putting up with life with lover-Boy/Girl.

Let it be, don’t put lover under pressure.

Let’s just get our rest together and not push ourselves.




I am still here, protected, in spite of all attempts to dislodge me.

Meditate on shutting out external pressures and staying connected to God.

Still forcing myself to not connect with him/her.

Resisting pressures and pushy people by connecting to an inner resting place or inner peace.


When you’re in love with a Pest (Seven of Wands + Lovers)


Am giving it a rest as lover refuses to have anything to do with me, and then beats my door down.

Still do not respond as lover accuses and defends him/her-self.

Am resisting an in-my-face drama-queen kind of lover by passive resistance, by just not responding.

So used to you raising hell that I don’t hear it even when you’re standing there next to me.

I sleep through (his) irate contacts with me: Not listening!

Still holding out against lover’s tirades.

Refusing to listen to the barrage or to do anything to contact (him/her).

Insists (he) loves me but (he) doesn’t do anything, it’s such a turnoff.

Doesn’t want to be with this person but is still there due to pressure.

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. I analyze business situations and personal relationships accurately from both Tarot and practical perspectives.  (Testimonials are on the web site.  http://EmilysInsight.com.)







Four of Swords
Seven of Wands – Four of Cups – Lovers




Three of Four of our panelist cards ‘are not having any of it.’ The other, Lovers, is about connecting, contacting, being partners, being together. Hmmm. Sometimes these cancel one another out, and that makes for crosseyedness of the mind. And Lovers is divine or angelic protection.


After fitting as many pieces together as I could find, the main messages seem to be about (1) resisting an in-your-face drama-queen kind of lover by passive resistance, by just not responding (2) resisting pressures and pushy people by connecting to a resting place within, inner peace. Once again, Tarot makes the point that love adheres to the same patterns as the rest of life.




Seven of Wands Neighbors unexpectedly invade his space and he defends himself against the odds (and wins). Look at this card; look at him. What this represents in most people’s spreads is the adolescent tirade, the ‘Gimme the car keys and I ain’t fillin’ the tank’ philosophy more and more Americans have. This temper is most characteristic of two-year-olds, adolescents, male mammals who want to be dominant and aren’t, and people who are mad as hell and won’t put up with it anymore.
Four of Cups refuses and rejects every time the choice is offered. Huh-hunh; won’t eat that. Resists temptation. What part of ‘no’ don’t you understand? Sometimes it simply is expressed by negative contractions: don’t, won’t, isn’t going to …. Resisting, and not hearing are today’s chief interpretations for Four of Cups.
Lovers Love partners is just the beginning of this Rider Waite Tarot card’s meanings; it is cluttered with them. Any kind of connection or contact, any kind of oversight (like the way we refer to the ‘higher-ups’ at work), protection including divine and angelic protection, standing next to (anyone or anything), connecting to God. Pictured is the Adam and Eve saga.
Four of Swords Sometimes you just tune out, turn off, take a nap, endure it without response, choose to be passive. Four of Swords is also meditation because depicted is the part of knighthood ceremony that is a vision quest: The candidate overnights in a cathedral lying on the sarcophagus of a great hero or saint and reports his vision to the bishop.

    Today I had to do something that really annoyed me. I won’t tell you guys about it, but maybe this reading is telling me to just ignore it. When I play the piano, it takes care of my feelings. Irritation just melts away.

    • Strategy to deal with a chronic in-your-face situation differs from an one-time immediate situation. Since I lived with the dude, I just pretended my first (creepy) husband was a gentleman. That forced him to act that way part of the time; it was brainwashing. It was disengaging from his games without even doing so officially.

      • Sue

        Oh Emily, I will bother you about it then. It was a lady whose yacht got damaged in a storm and they sought harbor in Tripoli. They held her for a few months in a hotel and an apartment with her husband. She was applying for war crimes compensation for a frostbitten toe. They actually treated and provided her with a space heater, but she said she wanted to do yoga in the other room where it was colder. I kept feeling sorry for her “captors”, who seemed like decent people. It seemed like she was just looking for attention and money. When there are so many really sad cases, this annoyed me. A cat wandered through her window, and she wanted to bring it with her when they released her. She complained the mattress hurt her back, and they brought her to the hospital for x-rays. How many Americans today can even do that? The Libyans flew the Cat with her on the flight out, too. It was the western side that wouldn’t accept it.

  2. Me

    It is so typical when you move toward the one you promised “in richer and poorer and in sickness and in health…they move away. I’m married and have to play games.
    Push me – pull me is so primordial…it is below high consciousnesses. Quite Frankly I think this we should be past this child -like, primordial dance.

    • Primordial predominates. You have to make sure that in some other space you are not doing the other end of the dance.

  3. Anna

    Is everyone asleep these days? It sure seems like it, leaving me with nothing to do but sit and twiddle my thumbs. I’ve taken up meditation. I set the timer for 15 minutes at a pop and try to empty my mind and concentrate on my breathing. I usually feel more alive the next day when I do this the night before.

    • Night is the time for this type of meditation. One of the things I do to go to sleep quickly is to count breaths and count new sounds as I become aware of them; when you lost either count, you start it over. As you fall asleep, concentrating on both tapers off and you quit counting because you aren’t ‘there’ anymore. So that is similar. As I do that, I relax my muscles and feel ‘heavier’ especially where the head is on the pillow.

  4. brittney

    I feel as though I cannot resist, I am still in love but he does not know it. I try not to pay him any attention, I blow his attempts to see me off, he is going about it the wrong way, when will the idiot become smart I wonder? This is With the Old Guy.. I absolutley hate to admit that I still love him but it doesnt go away easy and it takes time.

    With the new guy I am careful not to pressure excited for what’s to come.
    I like this spread Emily becasue sometimes it calls you out even when you dont want to reveal the true feelings and situation you may being going through.

    • Quite a few of the sentences describe a situation and its emotions. These readings are getting more specific, too. Thank you for your help; you are promoting our endeavor here.

  5. Lori

    I’m not pushy, I just let our love relationship be.
    Let it be, don’t put lover under pressure.
    I am still here, protected, in spite of all attempts to dislodge me.

    Great spread today, will definitely add that to the “don’t chasse him” theme that has been playing out this week with who I believe my warm puppy is 🙂

    Thanks Emily, you are a blessing!

    • Thank you for reporting on our experiment about Tarot for group reading. Yes, that theme has been insistent this week or so. “Let it be.”

  6. win

    Wow Emily, you have struck many cords, so many, today I’ll crawl out and not answer the ringing bell, cautiousness lets the richness feel, but richness releases the caution… I’m so counfused.

    • You don’t have to pay attention, you don’t have to react to stimuli, you can let the world mind it’s own business, or, as Jesus Christ Superstar said ‘Let the world turn without you tonight.’

  7. candy

    Good spread Emily..I feel like this has been my theme this week.

    • It’s a good thing to remember. Most people feel if there’s someone at the door, they have to answer it. “You don’t have to pay attention” is a good thing to remember. I feel that way about television: I don’t know it.
