Tarot Readings for You for February 24, 2013 Sunday(c)

Feb 23, 2013 by

Guidance     Your life has a spiritual dimension, a spiritual aspect, that can pop up unexpectedly and present you with something you fight for … or fight against.  Spiritual growth sprouts on the battlefields of our life most often – on the recurring crises that face us.  To get to our inner peace, our spiritual life, we are forced to overcome our attachments.  Often, it’s our attachments to people that either bless or impede our personal development or spiritual growth.

 

Instructions:

 

Are YOU here for the first time?  People love this place! 

Here’s what’s going on.  See the pictures?  Those are the four Rider Waite Tarot cards that make today’s messages (group messages) for you (and the people around you).

The site is divided into four sections.  The first is a summary, an overview.  That’s Guidance (above).

The second is the actual one-sentence group readings, Group Analytical Tarot Readings.  If you have come just for your day’s trends, you can go now.  You pick out the ones you intuitively relate to, and decide whether to seek or avoid that.  People relate to these!  See their comments, at the very bottom.  We would *love* to hear from you.

These answers don’t have a question (or a questioner) to frame them, so, yes, they can be contradictory – especially when one of the cards means ‘not’ or other negative word.  The negative can apply to any of the other cards.  And many of the pronouns are flexible.  Feel free to substitute.

The third section, Learn Tarot by Observation, is the reasoning that makes those four cards say the things you just read in the sentences.  It’s what an expert would be thinking.

The last section, Learn Tarot by Pictures, is the individual meanings of each card, based mostly on its picture, which you are looking at.  Read this frequently, and you remember what some of the cards mean.

LEARN TAROT BY OBSERVING

.

Three of our four Rider Waite Tarot cards at our conference table here, in Tarot Verbatim(TM) refer to spiritual life.  The fourth is about being under pressure, resisting, taking a stand – that sort of thing, and that is Seven of Wands, of course.  So we are going in deep, today.

 

Devil has a spectrum of meanings.  Obviously, this can be the bad guy, wrong, evil, force, brute or thug, the dark or shadow side (of anything).  But it also means things like desire and attachment.  It can refer to an attachment to a document, even.  It means physical, too.  It refers, of course to sexual desire, where to the level of ‘lust’ or not.  It also represents disease, illness, guilt, fear, and a really bad feeling like ‘I’m worthless’ – the type of feeling clinical depression can force upon one.  As a matter of fact, ‘wrong use of force’ is one of its general, philosophical definitions. 

 

When Devil intersects with Seven of Wands, any number of things happen. Since Devil refers to force (in a bad way), and since Seven of Wands is EITHER pressuring someone or being pressured – is either intruding or being intruded upon – and is resisting … well, you have lots of stories there, even before you add the elements the other Tarot cards contribute to those stories.

 

Back to the fact we have three spiritual cards on our plate today. Judgment refers to a whole new life, a new level of awareness, a revelation, life after death (any kind of death), a recovery or rejuvenation.  Recovery of disease is Devil + Judgment – two cards that have all sorts of meanings, like a vice pops up unexpectedly, getting over an attachment or addiction, even telling someone (he) is wrong or a realization ‘I am wrong.’  Devil + Judgment is a fascinating study.

 

Since Judgment also means ‘recur,’ something happening again … well, you have a contradiction every time.  To get over it, or it comes back … or both.   (In real life, the question and the questioner would frame these meanings one way or the other.  That is how Tarot functions.)

 

The third spiritual card in the spread is High Priestess, of course.  It means the spiritual aspect – of anything.  It means the spiritual plane or realm.  The symbols – especially the two pillars labeled with ‘B’ and ‘J’ – are from Kabbalah.  High Priestess stands for the female principle of being receptive (not doing anything, but knowing everything) esoterically.  So this is the spiritual card. 

 

In a more ‘real life’ application, High Priestess is a woman, a quiet woman, a wise or expert woman, a lady (passive), she who understands, the woman who waits.  It means staying in place, ‘to stay put.’   It is advice to sit back, wait, and not do anything.  (Look for Four of Swords to echo this advice.)

 

Seven of Wands is presented with an issue or an assault he is not ready for.  Ready or not, here it comes.  He is going to win against the odds because he is defending his own.  But he is overwhelmed and in the midst of combat at the moment we catch him in the illustration of Seven of Wands.

Devil    has a spectrum of meanings.  Obviously, this can be the bad guy, wrong, evil, force, brute or thug, the dark or shadow side (of anything).  But it also means things like desire and attachment.  The loose chains around the necks of the couple say the attachment (to what is wrong) is voluntary.  It can refer to an attachment to a document, even.  It means physical, too.  It refers, of course to sexual desire, whether to the level of ‘lust’ or not.  It also represents disease, illness, problem or difficulty, guilt, fear, and a really bad feeling like ‘I’m worthless’ – the type of feeling clinical depression can force upon one.  As a matter of fact, ‘wrong use of force’ is one of its general, philosophical definitions. 

 

Judgment refers to a whole new life, a new level of awareness, a revelation, life after death (any kind of death), a recovery or rejuvenation. These meanings arise directly from the angel with the horn that awakes the dead on Judgment Day.  In Tarot Verbatim(TM), Judgment also means ‘to return, or go back to’ the way things were.  The dead are returning to being alive again in the illustration.  ‘A new life’ and ‘returning to the way things were’ presents a potential contradiction you have to watch out for with Judgment.

 

Seven of Wands    is presented with an issue or an assault he is not ready for.  Ready or not, here it comes.  He is going to win against the odds because he is defending his own.  But he is overwhelmed and in the midst of combat at the moment we catch him in the illustration.  His neighbors intend to take his place and are assaulting him.  Seven of Wands is about being under pressure, resisting, and taking a stand today. 

 

High Priestess is the main spiritual Tarot card, since it means the spiritual realm or plane.  It stands for the feminine principle of receptivity, esoterically speaking – illustrated with the figure of a seated woman.  It is a Kabbalah-based card:  The pillars with ‘B’ and ‘J’ are about the mercy versus justice concept that I think is central to Kabbalah.  In a more ‘real life’ application, High Priestess is a woman, a quiet woman, a wise or expert woman, a lady (passive), she who understands, the woman who waits.  It means staying in place, ‘to stay put.’   It is advice to sit back, wait, and not do anything. 

 

 

EXPLANATIONS:

 

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.

 

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 want you to 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.

    The priestess meets the devil… Should make for a good time.

    Yes no more half assed relationships, I deserve a “10” not settle for a “5”

    • We learn that as we get older and pass through different sytles of relationships; and it doesn’t just apply to romantic ones. I learned not to cultivate friends who were ‘interesting.’ Here’s to your Ten.

    Emily,
    Thank you for this reading. I’ve had some people help me get started on a spiritual path over the past two years. . . but after a time they seem to think they should have a say in the path you take. It’s a challenge to break free and continue your own growth. Awesome message …

    • This one took more time and was more intriguing than others. This cluster of spiritual cards is part of a run on clusters. It feels good to know the message is appreciated. I spend a lot of time on them.
