Tarot Readings for You for February 4, 2013 Monday(c)

Feb 3, 2013 by

Guidance      Internal life occupies a rightful place of its own in our lives; we don’t have to get up and do if we are in ‘me time,’ if we are cogitating and meditating and sorting things out.  And we don’t have to interact just because someone rang our bell:  We can not know things and people we would just as soon do and be without.  (And they, as well, of course.)



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:  Worker (Eight of Pentacles)

Tarot Readings:  Meditation, Internal Life (Four of Swords)

Tarot Readings:  Not Doing (Four of Swords)

Tarot Readings:  Can’t Just Do Nothing (Four of Pentacles, + Four of Swords)

I kept saying I would do (it), so I can’t let myself just do nothing.

I am proud to be doing this and would feel inferior for not doing it.


Tarot Readings:  Worker (Eight of Pentacles)

(He) is such a good worker, (he) doesn’t get enough sleep.

I work and am still short of money.

My job is talking, so when I’m off duty, I’m pretty quiet.

I am not paid much at work, so I am not my best self there.

Here I am doing the work, but deep down inside, I know I have no part of this.

Such a good worker, and not enough money to retire on.

I am telling everyone that I am not working, I am laid off.


Tarot Readings:  Meditation, Internal Life (Four of Swords)

I talk to myself whenever I meditate on internal stuff.

I tell people about things I am doing, but keep quiet about my vision quests.

(He) knows the secret and isn’t acting like (he) does; (he) is doing the things (he) always does.

I am the kind of person who regularly takes time out to sort things out.

I am working on being the kind of person who not only doesn’t do that, but doesn’t even talk about that.


Tarot Readings:  Not Doing (Four of Swords)

This is the kind of person who isn’t employed and doesn’t do anything either.

Not saying why I’m not doing it; I talk only about the things I am doing.

This is my kind of thing to do, but I am not doing it because I don’t have the funds.

I haven’t done much to look good, I just don’t get around to that.


Tarot Readings:  Physical Body (Page of Wands)

We are told the same thing:  (He) is unresponsive, in a coma.

An internal organ keeps shutting down in (the) body.


Tarot Readings:  Not Interested (Four of Swords)

Keeps talking about something that I am ‘indifferent to the bone’ about.

Cute guys, I am just not interested in doing anything with any one of them so far.



Eight of Pentacles

Four of Pentacles – Four of Swords – Page of Wands




Darn! Eight of Pentacles is doing (consistently, one thing after another, or the same thing over and over) and Four of Swords is not doing (not participating).


And Page of Wands is talking, whereas Four of Pentacles is not talking.


And both Eight of Pentacles and Four of Swords mean ‘is still the same way.’


But I didn’t let all that bother my pretty little head.  I just dug up sentences that made potentially meaningful messages for you.


The gist of these missives, methinks, is that internal life occupies a rightful place of its own in our lives; that we don’t have to get up and do if we are in ‘me time,’ if we are cogitating and meditating and sorting things out.  And we don’t have to interact just because someone rang our bell:  We can not know things and people we would just as soon do and be without.  (And they, as well, of course.)






Four of Pentacles is about shortage.  He is holding onto his money, he is holding onto himself (feeling inferior), he is stifling himself (not talking), and is inwardly directed.  ‘Deep down’ feelings are one of its phrases, and the ‘internal’ meaning expands to refer to internal organs or internal anything.  He is keeping a secret. 


Four of Swords is taking time out, not actively participating, is unresponsive.  In the illustration, the knight candidate is meditating on the grave of a culture hero, as part of the knighthood ceremony.  The ‘time out’ includes being off duty, being retired, being lazy, and even being unresponsive in a coma.


Page of Wands is a person, usually ‘he,’ a young pleasant person who is an apprentice, starting out in life.  He can be a cute young guy. He is about presenting oneself, talking, standing for something, and even the physical body.


Eight of Pentacles shows a carpenter making one item after another.  He represents anything about work, worker, workplace, employment, labor, etc.  He also is consistent effort, one identical thing or action after another (even repetitive motion).



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.
