Tarot Readings for You for April 10, 2013 Wednsday(c)

Apr 9, 2013 by

Guidance   Mainly, today is about getting out from under something, getting free, having reasons to be happy, being on your way or fast progress … an uninhibited and unimpeded pursuit of better times. We are upbeat, we are energetic, we are on our way, movin’ on out.

Please comment whether you like the new format of the meanings under each sentence. Emily


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.

Eight of Wands


Knight of Wands – Sun – Six of Swords







Usually, when three of our four panelists mean the same thing, we don’t have many sentences, and it’s hard to phrase them. Not today.

Knight of Wands is to leave in a hurry (or to pursue).

Sun means to get out of the house, get out from under some kind of restriction. Well, it means fun and freedom and being impulsive, and a kid, too.

Six of Swords is leaving for better times ahead, and to avoid or put distance between.


The remaining Tarot citizen, Eight of Wands, is many, a list, ‘things,’ talk, and one after another.


Sun is happy, and in Six of Swords things will be better.


Both Knight of Wands and Eight of Wands are rapid, fast, quickly, in a hurry, etc.


Mainly, today is about getting out from under something, getting free, having reasons to be happy, being on your way or fast progress … an uninhibited and unimpeded pursuit of better times. We are upbeat, we are energetic, we are on our way, movin’ on out.






Knight of Wands See him run. He looks disconcerted, rattled even, as his horse rears and paws the air. He has the symbols of a ‘fiery’ nature (the reddish color and the salamander pattern). Knight of Wands is associated with ‘getting out of Dodge,’ and with pursuit, so it’s about pursuing or being pursued. He is energetic, ‘giving it all he’s got’ too.


Sun Baby boy sneaks out into the back yard to play, naked and bareback, on the surly pony. This is about being impulsive, uninhibited, free and having fun. The kind of adult who calls himself ‘The Kid.’ It can mean vacation, and often means getting out from under what stymies or restricts a person. Escape, busting free.


Six of Swords is getting out, putting something behind, getting over it, leaving, escape from a bad scene, and better times are ahead. Today, in its present company, it is upbeat. A mother and child huddle in an open boat on a gray day, with no baggage. They have help getting out of town; a fellow is paddling the boat.


Eight of Wands Limbs fly in the air, one above the other. The meanings have less connection with the illustration than usual for this Rider Waite Tarot card in TarotVerbatim(TM). It means ‘many,’ makes other cards plural, means ‘one after the other,’ as well as communication (written and spoken), sometimes means a list





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.

    Absolutely right on, seriously thought about leaving my job today and it felt great! Don’t have an opinion about the new format yet.

    • Some days are like that. Some jobs are like that. Contemplate all the angles before launch. I know that ‘felt great’ sensation. One Friday, I took off work from the court reporting office that did not assign me jobs. The new monthly court reporting magazine with the jobs all over the country posted in it had just come out. I was hired over the phone at five places, could start immediately. I chose one, packed my apartment up, and was gone in a few days.

    Hi Emily,
    Love, love, love this reading. Love the format. Could not be a better message for me at this juncture of my life . . . thank you Emily . . .

    • That’s all good.
      I would not have time to do twenty sentences a day in this format. The breakdowns take some time. But I could do a few sentences of each day’s this way, or I could do just, say, ten sentences.
      Hoping for some votes here. Question: Is it too much scrolling for you mobile visitors? Does it get tiresome?
