Our Daily Spread May 06, 2012 Sunday©

May 5, 2012 by

Guidance Well, this spread is a recipe for epiphany. We have two themes: New consciousness or new awareness and people troubles.We also emphatically speak of a new life, a rebirth, a recovery – counterbalanced by the same card meaning ‘to return to,’ which puts the ‘return’ into backsliding into the troubled situation. So this is Sunday, and we are being psychiatric here … fair warning? It’s also Sunday and we have waaaay too many sentences for comfort. You can quit whenever you like, okay?



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!








Tell the visitors here something useful and meaningful to them.


Realization, Awareness; A Change in Consciousness (Judgment + Hanged Man)


Spiritual awakening when you are overwhelmed by living among people.


Remind yourself that when things get their worst is when they change. In the midst of major miasma, I feel new life coming around the bend.


Bogged down in complications until an inspiration changes the perspective.


I feel I am making a difference, after years of other people’s issues.


Sudden perception that this is the very worst time of putting up with family, that things are changing.


Inspiration to get out of the huge problems in the home.


I am told in a vision that I have been dysfunctional entirely too long.


I get flashes of intuition that announce these people are in a lot of trouble.


A whole new view: The worse our problems, the longer we are together.


As I am staying forever in a bad marriage, I get a whiff of new life out there.


It was way too complicated until I got an idea how to change it.


A shift in consciousness: For so long we muddled through conflicts.


These spiritual awakenings overwhelm when they strike all at once as you deal with daily life.


When people at their worst get to you, you have a vision of an angel.


Shift out of too much awareness of other people’s problems.


Insight into all these other people and their conflicts changes you.




Trouble: Insight and Hindsight (Ten of Pentacles + Hanged Man)


Suddenly aware we have been through a lot of trouble together.


Now that I am in a new life, I realize that long marriage was so difficult, so troubled. It’s when you recover that you realize how bad your problems really were.


The minute you see that it’s the hostile atmosphere that wears you down, you are over it.


Suddenly you get it: They have always been a hateful bunch of people.


Got a new idea about these families that are barely making it.


Sense it’s other people’s interference that is changing things so much.


Still in a rocky relationship but I just know it will change.




Change in Myself; Self-Awareness (Judgment + Hanged Man)


Appreciate what a huge effort I am making to be different from the culture around me.


Everybody’s troubles get me down: That’s something I know must change. It’s I who must change when everybody puts burdens on me. I know I got to change or I will be putting up with these people for a long time. I have turned into someone who will put up too much with other people’s dysfunctions: I can see that all of a sudden.


Aware that all these problems have changed me.


Got the idea it’s too damn much trouble to change.


Realize how I have changed, going through all this people trouble.


See how much trouble it would be and change my mind.







(a) Business (Ten of Pentacles)




Get this good news: The extremely disgruntled coworkers are out of here.


Takes this team forever because they can’t get along with one another: THAT, you realize, is what to change.


Infighting here is so oppressive I think I am onto somewhere else.



(b) General:

Now I remember: Tire the bad guys out, wear them down.


I know I will recover slowly from the complications.


When life with people is getting to you, say what is on your mind.


I know bad people when I see them but it takes me a while to say something.


Announce formally so they understand that the trouble is only going to get worse. Shout to make yourself understood because they are engrossed in their petty differences.




Going Back to Trouble (Ten of Pentacles + Judgment)



Sense that going back to those difficult people will be overwhelming.


Realize this is a long term complicated relationship that you would be going back to.


It’s such a hard life being dysfunctional, but I see how I go back to it.


Just picture going back there to the ongoing feud.


Realize you will be coming back to more trouble than you can stand.


It hits you that (he/she) went back to the old circle of dysfunctional druggies.


Realize that when trouble re-visits, it is much worse.


You knew sooner or later the bad penny would come back.


Took me forever to realize (you) went back to your old gang.




Sad Change in People (Ten of Pentacles + Ten of Wands +Judgment)



Realize too late the changes in the people you know. Stricken by sadness at the change in my people. See all too well the changes in society. Finally you catch on to why everyone changed.


Can see all it entails for people like this to change.


Now that he is in all of this trouble he ‘gets it’ and changes.

 Two cards are about troubles: Ten of Pentacles is trouble with people, people who are trouble, dysfunctional relationships or dysfunctional families … even politicians, corrupt businesses and gangsters. Ten of Wands is being burdened and overwhelmed by too much; being slowed down and depressed.


Two cards are about a change in consciousness or new awareness. Judgment is a change of any kind, usually positive (as in a new life after death, you know). It’s ‘a whole new’ anything … always a good thing. Hanged Man is a sudden awareness, as in a flash of intuition, a eureka experience, a deja vu experience, any shift in consciousness that involves a realization of some truth.


Both Judgment and Hanged Man have suddenness in their vocabulary too. Both Ten and Wands and Hanged Man are intense. The intense realization in Hanged man and the overwhelming experience of Ten of Wands.


These made too many sentences. Yes, I weeded out some fairly morbid ones, and some redundant ones. And I put some similar ones in paragraphs instead of standing alone – easier to read. I felt the phrasing would mean something to different people, so I didn’t wade in and ruthlessly chop.


There are enough categories you can just skim or not read to the end. I put the most gloomy ones at the end. (I don’t see them as that gloomy, but I think most people would.)









Ten of Pentacles The mundane daily grind of ‘one damn thing after another,’ dysfunctional people that make a dysfunctional us. The Rider Waite deck illustrates Ten of Pentacles with a family quarrel: See the Head Dude imperiously on his chair-throne with the dogs on his side? He pays no attention to the couple, and the husband pays no attention to the wife, and the wife is paying no attention to the howling youngun. (I think grandpa wants another grandchild.)



Ten of Wands Too much, too slow, too hard, doing it all in one load is too depressing for words. Overwhelm mode. Slow progress. Extremely. The Rider Waite illustration shows a man bent over from the load of the limbs he is carrying.




Judgment The angel of Judgment Day (meant to Christianize the deck for decency’s sake in the Middle Ages in Europe) awakens the dead to new life in the illustration. So Judgment is about a new phase, a new realization, a new lease on life, a sudden surprise (a good one), and an announcement or shout.





Hanged Man Eureka is an experience of sudden realization as the subconscious kicks an idea onto the floor of consciousness. Suddenly you get it. Here, it is more a spiritual experience under the influence of Judgment.

    I love reading the comments too. It would be nice if we could have a link to an archive of just comments.

  2. Sue

    Today the sentences seem to combine in a swirl, and the general air of them all seems to apply. Something is wrong with me. I volunteered to help marine mammals. The people are good, we are doing necessary meaningful work, but all of a sudden, I just don’t feel like doing it anymore. The drive is gone. It feels like waves and waves of baby animals come in.

  3. Anna

    Yeah, I’m back-sliding.

    I like the comment section to come up right away at the end, rather than reading to the bottom, then scroll to the top again, click on the number of comments, then scroll down to the bottom again to read comments and leave one.

    • Me

      I like that thought!

    • At the end of what? – the sentences?

      Oh. If you click (on my computer) on the big headline in huge print(Our Daily Spread May 06, 2012 Sunday©) it opens the comments down below. You don’t have to go back up. Try that, and see – but you should not have to figure that out.

      I don’t know what can be put in the left column. I think, because of mobiles (and this is a mobile-friendly WordPress) you may not be able to do that, because that won’t show on a mobile?

      I am copying all this information for Pradeep, the cyber dude.

  4. TT

    I’d like to be able to go from one day’s reading to the next by clicking a link. You used to have that a while ago, it was at the bottom of the page, and you could click on yesterday’s date and get yesterdays reading. It was very helpful.

    • Me

      Agreed again

      • Noted! That page, the one with several days’ back readings, is ‘Home.’ I cannot reach it; Home is the same as this page for me. I get it once in a while accidentally, like two days ago when I clocked on Tarot Talks and there it was.

        How many days’ back do you want?

        And is the ‘scroll,’ the moving list of comments, valuable to you? It is over in limbo on the Home page. I asked CyberSavior to do that already.

  5. A cyber expert is going to improve the blog.

    You will enjoy the changes.

    Speak up if you have suggestions. Yes, he is making it mobile friendly. I always wanted drop boxes (those things you click ‘more’ on, and get more, and then zip it back up.)
