Guidance What people think of is what happens; what they don’t think of tends not to happen. The relationship between what we think and care about and what we dismiss without thinking about is today’s offbeat theme. Advice is to watch your step, and not sweep under the rug a diamond or a bomb. “When you don’t quite know what you search for, the search is never over.” Seek humbly to not dismiss your doubts.

Is this the first time you come here?  Well … what to do:

*Go to Guidance (above ) which is a summary of the Messages. (Guidance 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!


Eight of Cups – Hermit – Seven of Pentacles

Tell the visitors here something useful and meaningful to them.


Question the Man’s Monogamy (Hermit + Seven of Pentacles)


I guess he isn’t a good man anymore.

He was observed leaving there, but (I) dismissed my suspicions.

That teaches you not to ask questions when he disappears.

No warmth, is no friend; you wonder when (he) changed.

The truth is, (he) ain’t going to even consider going out of his way for you.

He is not monogamous; I doubt he ever was.

He is being monogamous, does not seem to disappear.

*How do you see this as not being abandoned?

The way he avoids you, you figure he isn’t devoted.


Quit Looking (Death + Hermit)


Wonder whether I quit looking prematurely.

*When you don’t quite know what you search for, the search is never over.

I’m not curious any more, I don’t even go out looking.

See the wise course is to abandon (Person); let (Person) think it’s over.

*No suspicions are raised: There is no way to know by looking.

*You quit wondering when you run across the facts.

You figure out it isn’t true and drop it.

Did not watch the end, why should I?

*The truth is: I am not even curious any more.

The patient does not ask questions, has alternatives.

I don’t care about (whoever/whatever): I figure I’m leaving.

Did not observe because I was not curious.

Medical science hasn’t even questioned that yet.

No inquiry or curiosity about the disappearance.

*Deceased comes to show you so you quit wondering.

When he drops in to help, that ends the doubt.

*You don’t have to question that: He died caring for you.


Out Searching (Eight of Cups + Hermit)


Person disappeared, or died, we don’t know: We are out searching.

Want to know the truth about near-death experiences.

Investigate curious near-death experiences.

Why did he quit right in the middle? – It’s not being looked into.

There isn’t a diagnosis yet – it’s open to question, not over.

Maybe I just don’t see the way out?

Asks you to help end something that never began anyway.

*Seek humbly to not dismiss your doubts.

Death is a fact; we wonder where we go.

*Don’t be truthful: Leave them wondering!

*Shows you a short cut you never would have thought of.

Understands why you left; doesn’t ask questions.


Figure it’s Over (Seven of Pentacles + Death)


When you’re out at night, you figure the evening is over when it’s dawn.

Will come to you somehow before it’s over.

Ended treatment before I thought it was time.

Now that he is dead, the truth all of a sudden seems to out.

Before it’s over he demonstrates he is not really your friend.

(They) suspect the facts already – there’s no way out of it.

Healing is finished, I guess that’s the end of it.

Figure out (Person) isn’t honest, and you’re out of there.


Guessing/Wondering/Stewing/Being Uncertain (Seven of Pentacles)


With this guide, I guess we won’t get lost.

I guess help does not arrive in time.

*Don’t stew over it; know that you will be out of there.

Drop out and not know whether that’s the end of learning.

It seems switching does not help.

*Why not be straight for a change?

*Sometimes you wonder why you left, huh?

The way he avoids you, you deduce he isn’t going to come help.


Unexpected Death (Eight of Cups + Death)


He was old but his death was still mysterious and unexpected.

They aren’t going to question or investigate the death.

A physician-attended death isn’t going to be questioned.

Doctor isn’t sure; death was unexpected.

A doctor doubts (Person) is going to die unexpectedly.

Eight of Cups – Hermit – Seven of Pentacles




Hermit is our star card. It means to search, to be on the path, to be monogamous as well as to be virtuous (sincere, helpful, devoted, a friend, understanding). Hermit is a male card, and can be a healer. He also travels, goes outdoors searching for people.


To the left of Hermit is Eight of Cups which means to avoid, abandon, end prematurely, evade, disappear, drop out or leave unexpectedly. ‘Now that’ and ‘ever was’ are some of its more subtle phrases.


To the right of Hermit is Seven of Pentacles: to wonder and ponder about some unknown, to question, to be uncertain. It picks up the ‘look into’ or ‘investigate’ of Hermit.


Above Hermit is Death, the great negator. It picks up ‘departure’ of Eight of Cups. Both mean an end. With Hermit being the physician, Death can now be literally interpreted, which it seldom is.


So, see, we have pairs that mean similar things: Eight of Cups and Death are endings; Hermit and Seven of Pentacles are inquiries, are looking at something. When you work with cards that have similar meanings, crosseyedness of the mind sets in!


Eight of Cups and Hermit both have a connection to religion, but I have not made sentences about the monk helping the pilgrim.


Our theme is the role of thinking and searching in endings of things. The subject is deeper than at first you think.




Eight of Cups The Unfinished Symphony is Eight of Cups’ song. Incomplete action every kind of way. A person afoot on a long journey (pilgrimage) is forced by terrain to change direction, change course, make a detour. The slilver and full moon together suggested end/beginning – something over before it begins, aborted, abandoned, dismissed, changed unexpectedly or abruptly. Hasn’t even yet, near-(death), any more, ever was, before it’s over… these are some of its expressions.
Hermit The friend who helps, the good man who teaches, goes out of his way. He searches for travelers in distress (search party) and is a physician. Hermit is watching, looking out for, being patient, coming to, traveling, inquiry, investigations. He is truthful and even stands for the facts. He understands/understanding. He is honest/honesty. He also shows and demonstrates as part of his ‘guide’ meanings. Humility. Being straight. Being celibate, which these days is ‘monogamous.’ He is also elderly.
Seven of Pentacles Think of this fellow as one of the ‘Duh’ cards. It calls forth a question; it catapults the sentence into question form often. Illustration shows a fellow wondering whether he (or his neighbors) planted enough cucumbers (since it is a gendered crop) to produce a crop. Some of its quizzical phrases today are: I guess, suspicions, ask questions, you wonder, even consider, I doubt, does not seem to, ‘How do you see this,’ you figure, wonder whether, don’t quite know, curious, let (them) think ….
Death In Tarot Verbatim ™, Death is a negative modifier that sometimes literally means death if other cards set that theme. In just about any other system, Death is not so limited. (Go figure) Anyway, this is one of the easiest to spot a meaning for. Here are just a few because they are so repetitious: isn’t, not to, no, ain’t going to, not, does not, not being, isn’t, quit, over, never would have, ended, end of it, die.

    Yes, last night I decided to give up searching for a mate. Death to that whole fruitless and sometimes expensive endeavor 🙂

    • In the Sixties, there were posters that said “A Woman without a Man is like a Fish without a Bicycle.” But usually we have to wait until we quit bleeding for that respite! Mother Nature is a Bitch …

  2. Me

    Hey -Been brewing herbs, Emily? think about good health today…I think that is the best I can do today!
    Be well think well I think I get it.

    • Been (continuing to take) consuming lots of Grapefruit Seed Extract, echinacea, lime with honey and cognac, candied ginger, as well as astragalus, Vitamin D-3, ashwaganda, quercetin, and garlic.
      There’s an upside to everything: I lost at least five pounds.
      Am writing this just before tomorrow’s spread posts at 1 a.m.
      Tomorrow I will be under the weather too. But I’m getting there: Today I slept so deeply that Billijo did not get to come into the house to do her job – had to leave because I was that deeply asleep. That NEVER happens.

  3. Sue

    Yes. I hope you are feeling better. Today’s spread is really good. I’ll keep it in mind during the day. Thanks.

    • You always do – and that makes me feel good. As I type the blog with the flu-influence, it’s more autopilot, and I have sneaked upstairs to use the notes to the encyclopedia to make up the sentences.

  4. Lori

    Todays spread is really speaking to me. Hope you feel better soon Emily!

    • I surely do appreciate the encouragement you guys are delivering! It’s wonderful to me to see the method I discovered prove itself in public like this.
