Our Daily Spread February 4, 2012 Saturday©

Advice  Today we have embattled females, competing females, women who are struggling together or who are rivals in love or in business (maybe in sports) … very competent skilled women.  A lot of energy expended toward a victory, toward defeating something or someone. “The harder she tries to understand and be supportive, the more domineering he is.”   “She tries hard to figure out how to get control of him by mothering him.”


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!



Ace of Swords
Queen of Cups – Queen of Pentacles – Five of Wands

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.)



Ace of Swords
Queen of Cups – Queen of Pentacles – Five of Wands






We have two women, fighting and winning. Both Rider Waite Tarot Queens here are competent, knowledgeable people: Queen of Cups emphasizes knowing and is sweetnatured, social – even naïve. Queen of Pentacles is running an enterprise, is financially knowledgeable and usually on the worldly side. Neither of them are competitive by nature, although Queen of Pentacles can be possessive of her man and be a matriarch type.


Today, though, they are in a fight or competition, either adverse to one another or on the same side. Five of Wands is a fight, struggle, battle, competition – or is trying hard, exercising, intensely involved in some activity. And Ace of Swords knows no compromise: It’s winner take all, it’s victory or defeat.


So I apologize for the repetitious sentences, but there’s not that much different material here, it all dovetails.






Queen of Cups emphasizes knowing and is sweetnatured, social – even dreamy or naïve. (She’s New Age there, contemplating her funky artifact as water encircles her throne … very blond.) She understands (her man), she thinks, she knows, she figures out, she thinks well of (him). She is kind and loyal – the stereotype would be the sweet Southern gal who believes in her man.


Queen of Pentacles can count. She runs the place (often her man’s business) and probably keeps the books. This is the kind of wife who watches her man’s back as his partner … the matriarch … say Barbara Bush. She is skilled, competent, able and worldly … also the passionate type.
Five of Wands What you see is what you get here in the illustration: a fight, struggle, battle, competition – or trying hard, exercising, intensely involved in some activity. Five fellow are whacking one another with logs here in an altercation or competition.
Ace of Swords Another ‘what you see is what you get’ illustration. A sword is not only crowned but the crown is crowned with the laurel of victory. Achievement, victory, winning, force, weapon, assertive or aggressive. Forcing or being forced. You have to, no choice, it’s an order. “I gotta do it.” It’s a sure thing. It’s a certainty or you are certain.

    I went shopping with my neighbor lady today and that was a surprise for me but the cards saw it coming 🙂

    Hahaha I m no longer competing for him.. she keeps him cause I no longer want him… I will borrow him every now and then… He is with her just not the way she would like! No one should ever want to have complete control of another person. Im holding out for a man worthy of my love.

    • Reminds me of a scene. A li’l gal popping her gum smacked “So. I guess I stole your man, HUH?” when she accompanied this VERY promiscuous fellow to my house to pick up a transcript.
      I have this nuclear tongue that goes off without consulting Brain. Out of my mouth flew, without warning “No honey, you didn’t steal my man; you took out my garbage.” The poor man stared at the ground.

      Well, you have complete control of your situation.

      Call me and I will tell you the formula for attracting the kind of man you really want. It is similar to the formula for winning the lottery, but easier.

    I’m going to try something new this morning because the sentences aren’t really speaking to me, but the cards may be. What if the Queens were different sides of the same woman, and the man or men are battling/competing for who will win such an amzing woman that has both sides to her?

    COuld be totally off base, but thought i’d give it a shot.
    Have a wonderful day everyone!

    • Queen of Cups and Queen of Pentacles are similar personalities. Both are loyal, both are ‘wives.’ Queen of Cups in a nice naive church-lady or woo-woo New Age type, a dreamer, whereas Queen of Pentacles runs some enterprise competently. So yes, they could refer to the same woman.
      In layouts with more cards, these two will represent the same woman in different sentences of the layout (Tarot Verbatim(TM) system). In a group reading of only four cards, I seldom do this; and I didn’t to it here because both the other cards meant a fight. You could also say the same woman has inner conflicts.

      You applied the spread to your own circumstances, which means, Girl, you are reading Tarot. How about that? Regular visitors here will absorb a lot, probably enough to do readings for themselves.

      • candy

        Emily you are one of a kind!!!!(o= Very fortunate and grateful to have someone like you share so much wisdom!!!

        • Thank you for that. Tell friends who might also appreciate this … profound entertainment?
          I just realized the Two queens are considered one person in some of the sentences, as in the very first sentence “The harder she tries to understand and be supportive” – Queen of Cups understand her man and Queen of Pentacles supports him (in any way).

    I wonder what I’m going to win for my effort today 🙂
