Tarot Readings for You for March 25, 2013 Monday(c)

Mar 24, 2013 by

Guidance    Our main focus today is on a shift within a male person from being repressed or secretive about something, to openly … brazenly … declaring himself to be in control of his situation, to being the master of his circumstances. It is a rebirth for him from being the repressed – and possibly alcoholic or addicted or dependent – to being master of those circumstances, master of his life.



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. Don’t be shy!

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.

Tarot Readings: Having Control Over the Situation (Chariot)

Not expressing his feelings until he has control of them.

Don’t have enough control over emotions? – that’s going to change.

An unobtrusive guy is just waiting to declare himself and take charge of things.

I have not said anything about my deepest feelings: I control all that.

He is reticent to declare he is the leader here, being more the quiet type of man.

The way he takes control so dramatically makes other men not express themselves.

A quiet but very competent guy like him can effect change without calling it that.

Don’t call me the leader, I’m the vice president.

He is the undeclared project manager, the power behind the throne.

He is quietly in charge, he doesn’t have to raise his voice.


Tarot Readings: Your Sweet Guy Loves You But (Four of Pentacles and King of Cups)

Yeah, he just can’t say ‘I love you,’ but your honey does things definitively for you.

Your guy can say ‘I love you,’ but he doesn’t act it, overtly.

I told my guy who was so repressed to declare himself.

Since my guy is off sulking, I am switching to a winner.


Tarot Readings: Not Stifling Myself Anymore (Four of Pentacles and Judgment)

I am keeping my weakness a secret until I recover the ability to be in control.

Secretly, he is an alcoholic; he aims to change that.

I am quiet – repressed, even – about my ability to change.

Deep down inside, I have an ambition to change from being the guy in the background.

I got control over my drinking now, and I don’t have to talk about it.

I am giving the commands now: I used to stifle myself.


Miscellaneous Tarot Reading

There’s a gag order in the decree that weakens our control over the situation.





Four of Pentacles – King of Cups – Judgment




Four of Pentacles and King of Cups are repressed, have a weak point, are very emotional, and are male folks. We speak of ‘deep down inside’ stuff here, emotional stuff that a guy does not admit readily to. King of Cups represents ‘your honey,’ as well as the guy who loves you, and a fellow with an emotional weakness which extends to alcoholism, or any deep secret a fellow feels insecure about because it has control of him, rather than him being in control.


This theme of a fellow being in control is underlined by Chariot, which – upfront – means a man in control, the project manager, the fellow who rules his situation or circumstance.


The remaining card, Judgment, is change, and also means declaring or a declaration. A new life, a new regime.

So, do we have drama, or what?


Our main focus today is on a shift within a male person from being repressed or secretive about something, to openly … brazenly … declaring himself to be in control of his situation, to being the master of his circumstances. It is a rebirth for him from being the repressed – and possibly alcoholic or addicted or dependent – to being master of those circumstances, master of his life.



Four of Pentacles Holding it in, repressed, deep down inside stuff a guy does not readily admit to, but feels insecure about and is secretive about. We see ‘The Miser,’ a fellow hugging himself and sitting in the road outside of town. There is stuff this fellow really doesn’t want to talk about, deep down inside stuff. He is broke or at least short of money. He feels inferior. He may be excluded from the society he belongs to. He has something to hide, possibly hide from himself.


King of Cups He is emotionally repressed, a weak or weaker man (or feels that way). He represents your honey, the guy who loves you. He represents a fellow with an emotional weakness which extends to alcoholism or other ‘ism, or any deep secret a fellow feels insure about because it has control of him rather than him being in control. King of Cups is also the quiet fellow, the diplomatic fellow, who is in control in a calm way behind the scenes … the vice president. His illustration shows a vacant expression on a fellow whose seat is surrounded by a flood. Bleary-eyed?

Judgment The angel blows the loud horn on Judgment Day. It awakens the dead. They revert to a former condition (being alive) and have a new phase or new life. The horn is a decisive declaration. Here is a new regime, a new life. Here is a change, a shift. Judgment has many meanings that begin with ‘re.’ Rejuvenation, revert, re-live, etc.

Chariot Here is a man who upfront, overtly, is in control. He is the project manager, the fellow who is in charge of this situation or circumstance. Taking responsibility, being in command, stepping up to the plate and taking charge: This is Chariot’s native habitat. The illustration (You have to look closely.) shows him controlling the movements of his steeds (sphinxes, magic creatures) with a wand rather than reins. There is a longer story about how sphinxes go only to the right or the left. He has one of each (indicated by the reversed colors), and has hitched them so they have to go straight because they are in one another’s way. So the idea of Chariot is: Use the factors that are mitigating against your mission for it. Tack against the wind, in sailboat language.


EXPLANATIONS: (Skip this and the gray tags to get to Comments.)

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 a personal reading, 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.

    What this spread is about is exactly what my guy is going thru.. Enily im speachless.. You never cease to amaze me..

    • Successes like this make the effort of this blog worthwhile. His ambition to change is success in itself (even if he doesn’t make it over the hump this time.) Thank you for telling me (and the world) this.

  2. Jaclyn

    Hi Emily,
    Well that’s certainly what the conversation with daughter and her daughter and her almost live in boyfriend was about tonight. If they they were gainfully employed and employed and could afford their own place… the conversation might have gone a little differently . ..

    • IT’S COME TO THIS! The awful truth … expressed as ‘the facts of life’ … that you are only in control of your life and your days when you are in control of your finances.

      Finances is karma … quite often.

  3. Candy

    Sounds like my guy friend… I have no clue about his feelings because he niether speaks about them much less show em.. This weekend would be a perfect example.. And i fell for it… I will try to contact you about it sometime tonight..Thank you Emily..

    • We will crawl around in the dusty recesses of his consciousness and see under what rock those feelings are hiding, maybe even spook them out into the open for a day.

  4. Anna

    This could be about my coworker, he is always very secretive.
