Advice When a person is young in his or her love life, and when a person is young in his or her career, changes of direction happen, addresses are abandoned, jobs are abandoned, lovers are abandoned, and it’s on to the next with little ado … or at least with less ado than would later accompany such a change. A personable young man or woman can overnight be on the road to success by a strategy of switching course.


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!




Eight of Cups
Empress – Chariot – Knight of Cups





Tell the visitors here something useful and meaningful to them.



Romance, About the Boy (Empress + Chariot/Knight of Cups)



There goes his willpower, he is approaching the most attractive one.

He decides not to be sweet to his best girl.

He ran his car off the road flirting with a dame.

He decides to quit approaching the lookers.

He offers to go out of his way to drive her.

He introduced her to this successful dude, and she was gone.

He makes up his mind to be this ideal-for-him woman’s boyfriend right now.

He makes up his mind to quit being the siren’s boyfriend.

His briefest of love affairs with The Goddess is an achievement.

He shows up suddenly and courts the lady very deliberately.

All of a sudden it is the nice guy who wins over the trophy lady.

He is very nice to pretty ladies whether it gets him anywhere or not.

Suddenly such a young man is in charge, and here’s this attractive woman there.

Do not let him drive the sexy girl’s car.

He offers to go out of his way to drive her car.


Romance, About the Girl (Empress + Knight of Cups)


The pretty lady’s young man is an early success, he has such a courtly manner.

She is well off and her cute guy doesn’t even have a car.

A nice looking woman who runs when she sees a nice guy who is successful.

She attracts a boyfriend but he chooses to leave her.

She and the guitar player drive off.

The good looking woman decides to leave with the boyfriend.


Getting Ahead, Ambition (Chariot)


She is in charge of the project when the young man is out of there.

Be really nice to the secretary to get ahead fast here.

He appears out of nowhere and gladhands his way to being a manager and having a fine-looking girl.

He aims to politely leave this place behind, with his beautiful gal.

She gets ahead on her looks without even being polite.

The two of those gracious nice-looking folks are instant successes.

He offers to leave to be put in charge where the girl is.

With his help and her talent, she is an immediate success.

She doesn’t have a boyfriend, by choice.

She puts her resources at his disposal to get this project over with immediately.

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.)


Eight of Cups
Empress – Chariot – Knight of Cups







Here’s the good looking (sexy) woman who is well off, Empress, and the Nice Young Man, Knight of Cups, who is also the boyfriend. They are well-matched: both are gracious social young people.


Chariot is about willpower (drive), doing a project, doing anything deliberately, on purpose … and being successful, getting ahead. Chariot is a vehicle, so ‘cars’ get involved. Actually, Chariot is any vehicle at all.


Lastly is Eight of Cups which means an abrupt change, abrupt appearance (or disappearance), something done immediately, as well as an interruption or disruption to a course … a course of action or a course of direction. It’s a detour, so it also has a whiff of: not doing it now, but intend to get back on course.


So we have stories of romance and of getting ahead. It’s more about intention than action. There’s an in-the-moment feel to this, and also no real depth to the messages today. A vacation from some of those ‘profound’ messages is timely, you think?





Empress is a resource (traditionally pregnant), is a sexy good-looking woman – as well as the ideal woman, a glamor figure. She is based on the ancient love goddesses. See the female symbol in what we think of as a valentine but which was a sex sign in olden times? She is his darling, and may be his kept woman.
Chariot is about strategy, the willpower to purposefully get ahead, the drive to complete the project successfully. The Project Manager. To have your hands on the steering wheel of your life and your eyes on the road. As I have said before, the esoteric notion to this Rider Waite Tarot card is he is using a wand, not reins; and he has hitched the sphinx that will only go right on the left, and hitched the one that will only go left on the right of his chariot, so that they are forced to go where he wills: ahead. His strategy allows him to outsmart the limitations of his situation or environment.
Knight of Cups goes with the flow, makes the first offer of friendship, introduces himself, offers to help, is your boyfriend, is sweetnatured and polite. Is often cute. In the same way Knight of Pentacles’ horse matches the way he is drawn, so does Knight of Cups’ horse: the cute curved lines and the muted colors are patient and soothing. He is often a young man, and is definitely warm and fuzzy.
Eight of Cups blips off … or onto … the screen. Appears or leaves early. Detours or runs off the road. Is instant or immediate. An interception or disruption. To go off in another direction. To quit or walk away from. To abandon. The very briefest of appearances … over with before it even begins. Abortive. To give up in the middle, even to go A.W.O.L.

    I see the need to change both of us.

  2. Anna

    I know what this is about, as there was an sudden change on Wednesday for me and the guy

    • It is always good to know the messages are tracking. Sometimes I wonder about them. Every once in a while there is a daily blog that makes me shake my head.

  3. brittney

    New guy entered my life on Sunday…maybe he could be the good guy I need, he seems highly interested.

    • Take that ‘highly interested’ and use it as the fulcrum to leverage him into Good Guyhood. Remember, half of him is what you do with him – romance is a partnership like that.

  4. Cooking one up for you, right here on the front burner. Now, you picture him as you are ready for him to be, okay?
    No charge.

  5. Lori

    I could use a gracious distraction at the moment 🙂
