Tarot Readings for You for January 21, 2013 Monday(c)

Jan 20, 2013 by

Guidance        Putting it all together, we have a caution light on the times when we are ‘sold’ and gung-ho about something – a caution light that says, ‘Check out the self-interest of the other people involved.  Are they on board?’  Along the same lines, when sex is great with a partner, we are likely to assume we are both in love, here; and women tend to assume ‘love’ means devotion and being taken care of.  In short, when you feel rah-rah about something, check the wind, check the facts.

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.

Tarot Readings:  Happy Optimistic Upbeat Enthusiastic … (Star)

The company of upbeat people is the way to overcome what’s eating you.

Both the love and the sex are great in this relationship.

The very best love affair and love relationship you will ever have.

We are crazy in love in this relationship because the sexual bond makes it so.

I am very happy in this relationship but it is a hugely bad influence on me.

This team is wildly optimistic about overcoming the adverse climate.

She has to be in love with whoever she is having sex with – that’s a relationship to her.

I do my part – I absolutely love doing my part – but you get taken advantage of.


Tarot Readings:  Grifters, Deadwood, Mooches, Self-interest (Two of Cups)

I’m telling you all about how these grifters get the best of you when you deal with them.

The presentation at the meeting was total self-interest.

This meeting is a pep rally designed to motivate the deadwood.

We met to discuss how to intimidate the mooch.

I gave the mooch an ultimatum to ‘do your part and love doing your part.’

You have to deal with the flattery of people who don’t really like you.

You have to talk these selfish people into doing their part.

My speech made the slackers agree to do their part.

Forced to admit cheating in this relationship.

Miscellaneous Tarot Readings

It makes you feel good but you have to deal with the nasty side effects.

I force myself to be happy in a relationship in which I am taken advantage of.

We say we are unanimously agreed, but we have some reservations.


Two of Cups

Three of Pentacles – Star – Ace of Swords





This spread is uniquely suited to be spoiled by that one card, Two of Cups, that is about insincerity and self-interest, sabotage and taking advantage.  It is the mooch, the embezzler, the cheater … just about any treachery you could name … accompanied by being a friend.


Why? Because our spread is about a very overtly happy crazy-about-you relationship in love land, and a gung-ho enthused motivation in business land, attitudes that open us up to insincerity. 


From Star we get the good feeling, the enthusiasm, the optimism.


From Three of Pentacles, we apply it to any relationship – love, business, social, even legal negotiations.


The sentences whose messages are upbeat apply Two of Cups as the adverse factor that is being overcome in a relationship, or one’s internal reservations about what’s going on, or apply it to sex and the sexual bond.  That’s one-third of our sentences.


Putting it all together, we have a caution light on the times when we are ‘sold’ and gung-ho about something – a caution light that says, ‘Check out the self-interest of the other people involved.  Are they on board?’  Along the same lines, when sex is great with a partner, we are likely to assume we are both in love, here; and women tend to assume ‘love’ means devotion and being taken care of.  In short, when you feel rah-rah about something, check the wind, check the facts.






Three of Pentacles is doing your part fair and square.  It’s an exchange in a relationship, whether the relationship be love, business, social or litigation.  It is a meeting or conference where people come to agreement, put their heads together.  The illustration shows an architect demonstrating, with the blueprint, that he fulfilled his job and is entitled to the final draw.
Star is the cheerleader, the singer,  praise and enthusiasm poured forth, feeling good all over, beautiful (woman or day or anything), and a sales pitch, declaration of love, or any enthusiastic speech. The illustration is of a woman singing in a bath – and that is the mood of the Star card, entirely.
Ace of Swords    The penultimate.  A total victory is depicted by a sword that is crowned, with laurel leaves on the crown.  Ace of Swords is by force by golly, there’s no question about it.  Here it is translated ‘have to’ over and over.  Here are its words today: intimidate, total, get the best of you, force myself, get even, forced to, motivate, overcome, absolutely, hugely, makes it so, the very best (i.e., the most), and great.
Two of Cups    The illustration depicts a malefic (bad) spirit influencing lovers who are ‘pledging their troth’ or getting engaged.  It is about violation of trust, disloyalty, taking advantage of or using another person, adverse climate, con artists and mooches and embezzlers of all stripes, taxes and side effects.  The adverse effect an unseen factor has upon the situation.  It can be your own misgivings, not trusting the environment.  Other Tarot systems do not take the caduceus (the entwined snakes supporting the winged lion’s head) into account here, so they consider this to be just about a couple in love.  Which it is.  This card is about sexual affair, sexual bond, grand sexual love affair, and does not have to use the malefic spectrum of its meanings.




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.

    Your daily spreads are so amazing. This is the very question I wanted to ask . . . even though it’s been asked and answered on previous calls. I keep getting seduced by the charms of this man . .. but the cards don’t get fooled . . Thanks so much Emily.

    • When you hit 51, you stop bleeding and start breathing. You’re welcome so much. Wanting Dude less may make him want you more – that is often the case. It’s sad that what a woman does when she is sick of a dude is what turns a dude on. God’s sense of humor?

    What should a person say to a person who doesn’t do their part?
