Tarot Readings for You for January 20, 2013 Sunday(c)

Jan 19, 2013 by

Guidance        Friendship between two fellows – especially how they can  be fast friends and never  interact with one another – comes up in our discussion for today.  Just like your boyfriend can lapse into a coma of inactivity and never call you, but still loves you.  But we do point out that a boyfriend comes to see you when he hasn’t heard from you in a while.  Another of today’s advices is to get your beauty rest.

Instructions: Are YOU here for the first time?  Come in!  People love this place!  Our site is divided into four sections: Guidance, Tarot Readings, Learn Tarot by Observation, and Learn Tarot by Pictures.
If you just want your daily look ahead, Guidance and Tarot Readings are all you need.  ‘Guidance’ is a summary of what the cards are generally advising visitors to be aware of that day.  ‘Tarot Readings’ is the actual word for word messages the cards are conveying.  Tarot can come up with a wide variety of sentences (sometimes even completely contradictory sentences!) in a group reading as there is no specific question being asked.  So, go ahead and pick the sentences you feel are yours and decide whether to encourage or reject them for yourself.

Want even more insight and information about a specific situation in your life? Call me, Emily, at 1-800-993-6912 and talk to me personally and have yourself a live, in detail, Tarot Reading like no other you may ever have had before. Your call will support 500 acres of wild life in an animal sanctuary where I live and call home.

Also, don’t be shy about talking to the Community of Users in the comment section below. You’ll find this as the very last thing on this site. Trust me when I say we would *love* to hear from you!

Tarot Readings:  Friends, Without Anything Happening (Four of Swords + Knight of Cups)

We don’t have to see one another often to be friends.

Two guys can be friends without any back-and-forth.

These two guys never interact with one another, but are friendly.

I am not going to let my friend come to my aid this time.

A supposed friend who doesn’t help.

Friends don’t see one another often,  but have an understanding.

I understand my friend is a goofball, and let him be that way.

Nice guy, but he keeps seeking to be a couch potato.

Your buddy comes to you with one suggestion after another that you do not act upon.

I am always asleep when this buddy comes to see me.

I keep tuning out his helpful suggestions.

I am always asleep when this buddy comes to see me.


Tarot Readings:  Boyfriend and Inactivity (Four of Swords + Knight of Cups)

When you don’t respond, boyfriend will come looking for you, every time.

Boyfriend is sincere, he just lapses into inactivity.

I observe:  Boyfriend is sometimes indifferent to me.

Boyfriend sometimes is helpful and sometimes is not.

Sometimes I lie around doing nothing, and then boyfriend comes to see me.

Sometimes I am looking for a boyfriend and sometimes not.

You can go a long time without a kind understanding boyfriend.


Tarot Readings:  Health, Doctor (Hermit)

Do not go to the doctor as often as he suggests.

As long as you are laid up, your friend comes to help.

I suggest you look for ways to get regular rest and sleep.

A doctor suggests you not do something as often.


Tarot Readings:  Not Responding to the Offer (Four of Swords + Knight of Cups)

Someone keeps coming to me for help.  Count me out this time.

Someone keeps trying to be your friend, and you have reason not to do that.

He keeps offering to help.  Do not respond.


Miscellaneous Tarot Readings:

I am always in search mode when I meditate, open to suggestion.

Sometimes I am open to friendship, and sometimes not.

Just accept the fact that kindness is not always repaid.

My friend has always come to see me often.

The two of us guys have always been such good friends:  It goes both ways.

Two of Pentacles

When, oh when ...





Four of Swords – Two of Pentacles – Knight of Cups





How strange.  Hermit and Knight of Cups, two cards that mean three of the same things – friends or friendship, come to, and help – are back again, from yesterday.


Today, they are accompanied by not doing or not responding (Four of Swords) and by something that is continual or repeated or ongoing.


The two guys are friends, and a lot of our stories today are about friendship between two fellows – especially how fellows can be fast friends and hardly ever talk to one another or do anything together. Since Knight of Cups is also Boyfriend, we explore how fellows lapse into inactivity, and how they respond when they are ignored in return. 


Since Four of Swords is also about rest and sleep, and Hermit is a physician, we delve a little into going to the doctor, and getting your beauty rest.






Four of Swords  The ceremonies for becoming a knight include a vision quest overnight in a church, lying on the burial place of a culture hero, to determine your life purpose.  That is what you see in this illustration.  Four of Swords is ‘time out,’ meditating, not interacting, not responding, not participating, and getting your rest.
Two of Pentacles

When, oh when ...

Two of Pentacles   We see a juggler, plates moving incessantly as he dances, wearing a goofy costume.  Ships toss behind him.  In Tarot Verbatim(TM) this Rider Waite Tarot card is about repeated or continual action, and about movements.  It often adds ‘keeps’ to a verb, as in ‘keeps moving.’  It means silly or goofy, too.
Knight of Cups   is your friend, and everyone’s friend.  He may be a salesman, and he is a lover.  He comes to us with his hand out in friendship.  “He’s sooo cute, he’s such a sweet guy,”the girls say.  He is pictured on a horse that looks like a merry-go-round pony, and he wears Mercury’s wings – the communicator – on his helmet.
Hermit    He is on the road at night in the cold to help his fellow humans, to seek them out to help them.  Here is a kind, sincere man who is a true friend.  He has medical expertise.  As a monk, he is associated with spirituality.



















Each and every ‘Tarot Reading’ sentence you see is a literal interpretation of the four Rider Waite Tarot cards drawn and pictured for today. (The literal interpretation is from the illustration on each card.) These sentences are put together by only combining the phrases of what each cards says. In other words, there are NO “filler” phrases added just to make full sentences, and no psychic ability or spirit guide is ever involved.


*Without a question* in a group reading to focus the answer, the four Tarot cards can mean quite contradictory things, especially when the Spread has a card that means ‘no,’ ‘never’ or ‘not.’ These negative modifiers can apply to any one of the other cards.
*Without a question* in a group reading, the pronouns (you, him, her, me, us, them, they, etc.) are more flexible. Whenever you see a pronoun in parentheses, please *feel very free* to substitute another pronoun than the one used. I try to drop pronouns when possible, which, if you’ve noticed, can make for awkward phrasing.

Now in an ‘real’ individual reading, the questioner asks a specific question and thereby supplies at least half the information! In an individual situation, the parties are identified and sometimes a time frame is too. Here, in a group reading we cannot do that and so we get a variety of sentences.

Horoscopes are group readings, too. Astrology is based on someone else’s birth data, though, so a ‘solar’ group horoscope never really solidly applies to you! (Astrologers know this!)

Tarot, on the other hand, is perfectly capable of flexibly addressing any group, including all of the visitors that come to this site. It can also address people you might not even know personally, such as all the people at your job who have a say in whether or not you get a raise.

We have been wondering here lately whether the Tarot Verbatim(TM) sentences are more accurate for regular visitors than they are for people who visit this site only once in awhile or for a short time. Would you help us with a comment please, if you have not been a regular visitor? Just let us know if the sentences are relevant to you. So far, people say they do apply.

Return to this site often and you can put all this together and intuitively see yourself how Tarot Verbatim(TM) works. Regular visitors actually learn to read Rider Waite Tarot cards with very little effort.

    Interesting. Wonder if I will hear from my friends from the past.

  2. Jules

    yes, a lot here that pertains to me as well.

    • Thank you! Like I said, knowing this one was one the mark makes it worth the effort. This one, I had to drag up the hill. It did NOT flow.

  3. Lori

    You can go a long time without a kind understanding boyfriend.-Yes I have, can I have one now? Oh yes, and I have been ill so the rest makes sense, and not going to the doctor so often…that applies too.

    • That’s good to know. This one was hard to do, so it’s nice knowing it was worth the effort. Call me to learn how to design the fellow you want to meet … design the right way, because I did it twice and accomplished what I ordered … but did not fill in the blanks properly.

      Make sure you love yourself so he will feel you are worth loving.

  4. Jaclyn

    Yes needed my beauty rest this week. Got a flare of my pain syndrome . . only cure is back to bed for a day of sleep. Took me a few years to figure out how to listen to my body. Got to get in to see my rheumatologist . . .
    Right on again Emily . . .

    • Sleep is as important as food, water and air. Yes, the body does talk to us. There’s a lot of counterintuitive information about rheumatoid arthritis on the internet. I used to send it to a client who had a really bad case and was a medic. Can’t remember it anymore, but am sure it’s still there. Lots of stuff.

      • Jaclyn

        Hi again . . .just got to today’s spread on my android. Circuitous adventure . . .

        • When we talk, tell me about the experience. How it displays on different phones and iPads is important. One of the reasons I chose this theme is that it was designed for mobiles.

          Besides being tiny, I can read it on my cell phone.

  5. Anna

    He is sincere but does lapse into activity now and again 🙁
