Advice  Sometimes you just don’t know whether things will be right, but why stew?  Things are going to continue to be all right, and then what about your angst?  Who but lawyers benefit from scary situations?  Why worry;  will crying make it right?  How can you make money being straight in terrible times?  Is it normal to always have bad dreams?  The income seems to balance but (you are) worried.

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!


Seven of Pentacles
Three of Wands – Justice – Nine of Swords




Tell the visitors here something useful and meaningful to them.



Why worry? (Nine of Swords + Seven of Pentacles)

Why worry? Things are going to be all right.

Why do you keep worrying when everything is all right?

Sometimes you just don’t know whether things will be right, but why stew?

Things may continue to be just fine, and then what about your angst?

Should I keep worrying?

Will crying over it make it right?




How much should I be making? – I worry about that.

I’m supposed to know what will bring profits in this scary market?

When the income keeps you up nights, what should you do?

How can you make money being straight in terrible times?

The income seems to balance but (you are) worried.


Anxious and Uncertain (Nine of Swords + Seven of Pentacles)


Always do what (I) should because (I) am anxious and uncertain.

Not sure whether this income is legal – it keeps me up nights.

Unsure and anxious about what the laws are going to be.

I always worry that maybe he is right.

Horrible uncertainty about whether things are going to be as they should.

Is it normal to be this scared of what’s going to happen?

Always going to wonder whether (I) did right in that tragedy.

Is it normal to always have bad dreams?


Legalities and Police (Justice)


Worry and wonder about whether to ‘make it legal.’

Not sure whether this income is legal – it keeps me up nights.

Unsure of the future, worry about the legalities.

How much money will a lawsuit for emotional trauma bring?

Worry about whether the lawsuit will bring money.

You may as well continue to worry about the police.




A lawyer makes his money off other people’s worst nightmares, doesn’t he?

(He/She) is so straight (he/she) always seems to get on my last nerve.

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.)


Seven of Pentacles
Three of Wands – Justice – Nine of Swords






Have you noticed Nine of Swords and Seven of Pentacles appear together fairly often? Worry and wonder, anxiety and uncertainty, ‘why does it get to me?’ Here they are again.


The other two Rider Waite citizens are Three of Wands – income, the future, what will be happening – usually a good thing and always a continuing thing – and Justice, which means ‘should,’ anything referring to lawyers, police courts, etc., and being legitimate or straight. It is a faint marriage card, not really meaning marriage when it stands alone, but more like making it legal … and usually that is the specter of making it legal.


So mostly we are talking about fears, fears about the future, about income, and about what should be or legalities. Very pragmatic stuff today.






Three of Wands See him there watching as his ships come in? He is a merchant and the ships carry his merchandise and his profit. He knows, he is certain, of his good future because he has his eye on it. Future, income, continuing, good outlook or good future, waiting.
Justice Anything about courts, law, regulations, legal proceedings, judges and lawyers and police. Should. Legitimate or straight. Making it legal (as in marriage, but not definitively). The rightful. Normal. Fair and balanced. The scales of justice in one hand and the sword of execution on the other.
Nine of Swords Distress, upset, up nights, crying, stress, anxiety and worry, fear and afraid and scary and the specter. Terrible thing. Dark night of the soul. This is one of the Rider Waite Tarot cards you don’t need a book for, either. A person is upright in bed in the dark of the night, holding head in hands, covering face.
Seven of Pentacles Wonders and ponders and raises questions in an iffy situation. He is growing cucumbers, which need a plant of the opposite gender nearby in order to bear, and he isn’t sure whether that is the case. He won’t know until it’s too late. He may have to do without, so his future is by no means certain regarding this situation.

    Horrible dreams last night, demonized lions tigers and bear( viciously attacking) with flooding waters and unescapable mountainous cliffs, I hardly ever have bad dreams,,,awake conscience, awake and move with the best from mind and heart.

    • That is a bad dream. Reminds me of a picture painted by an institutionalized mental patient, many years ago. It means something that has to be faced; you can’t run away from it, and it is a threat and it is coming at you. Advice is to face it. In dreams like this, when you do face the scary thing, it turns into something else. Next time they show up, take charge of the dream in the dream. This will help with whatever the dream means in real life.

    Why worry? Things are going to be all right.
    Why do you keep worrying when everything is all right?

    That sounds just like my Mom talking to me.

    • Why worry even if things are not going to be all right? My father used to say, when I got all upset about something “A hundred years from now, you won’t even remember it, so why get upset?” and “One of two things will happen: Either you will die of it or you will get over it. Either way, getting upset won’t change it.”

      Yes, that is what parents tell you.

  3. Sue

    Thanks Emily. This is golden advice. I’m not sure what this weekend will bring. I’m going to volunteer at something that will be difficult for me, but it feels right. If I can handle listening to war crimes, I ought to be able to handle pain and injustice in real life. If I can’t even look it in the eye, how could I do anything about it.

    I remember the having to give one of the animals a shot, and I kept flinching away, and you got annoyed at me. I don’t want to be that sort of person that flinches from doing what needs to be done.

    • Sue

      Aaak! My punctuation is horrid. Oh well. I’m not sure how to go back and fix it. Sorry.

      • When you decide you are really going to do something, you do it. Looking ‘it’ in the eye is important, not flinching. If you look like a fight might be fun, muggers avoid you.

        Punctuation is fine. Is there an ‘(Edit)’ after the date on the comment box, for you? If it appears on yours, you just click that and rewrite, and re-submit.

        • Sue

          No edit button for me. I forwarded an email to you just now. If you didn’t get it, let me know. If it’s something you’d like to do, I’ll follow up with them and bug them about you.

          I like their stuff because you get to see people doing good things and working together well too. Heard a lot of people that I admire and try to learn from.
