Tarot Readings for You for April 17, 2013 Wednesday(c)

Apr 16, 2013 by

Guidance    Today’s main focus is on the stages of a man’s maturity, from reckless brat, to handsome young man to mature grandfather. We also cover regressions therefrom: the old man who has a second childhood, and ‘He never was a kid, was mature even when he was a cute young guy’ as well.


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: A Mature Man; Growing Up Respectable (Page of Wands and Emperor)


I’m not a good-looking funloving guy anymore; I’m mature now.


The old man quits being a playboy and is respectable now.


I’m not young anymore, I have the look of a senior dude.


I was mature when I was a kid – didn’t get a childhood.


Daddy isn’t talking about his youthful exploits.


Not a kid anymore; he is a grown-up now.


The kid goes on to become a fine young man, and a leader.


You’re no longer a young fella when a kid makes you a grandfather.


He isn’t young anymore, but he is happy in his old age.


What a relief to be a senior dude and not that eager-to-please young fella I was.


He gets out of the house and goes for a walk to be the man in control of himself.



Tarot Readings: Being Old, About Old People (Page of Wands and Emperor)


He feels he is so old he will be gone by the time the little kid is a young man.


I go out of my way to talk to the old man; I enjoy it.


The old man is gone, but his son is his ‘spitting image.’


He is old and never had the son he could be proud of.


Young people have fun ignoring what old people have to say.


When I was a kid I had nothing to do with the Establishment, but now that I am older, I damn well personify it.


All of a sudden the fun fellow turns rigid on us.



Tarot Readings: Fellow Who Didn’t Mature (Eight of Cups + Emperor)


He’s a handsome fella who leaves children behind until he’s old.


A good-looking older man turns into a young fool.


You’re too old to run away from home, so shut up about it already.


The old man quits being who he is and acts like a kid.


People are talking that he isn’t the patriarch anymore; he’s childish.


Daddy left home when this young man was a baby.



Miscellaneous Tarot Readings


Grandpa is never told what a brat Son is being.


When his son abandons the kid, Grandpa is there.


He never was a kid, was mature even when he was a cute young guy.


He is NOT old, he is a vibrant funloving young man.


When the boss retires, the young man is set free.






In the middle we have a transition, change, a dropping off of one way and going onto another, Eight of Cups, which also can be about a pilgrimage.



Then we have three stages of maturity: The little brat (Sun), the fine young man (Page of Wands), and the patriarch or old man (Emperor) – all male cards. There’s a contrast between the ‘reckless brat/playboy’ of Sun and the respectable (Page of Wands) maturity of Emperor. With Eight of Cups meaning change or transition, our main message here is about growing up.



Of course, Page of Wands also means talking and physical body, good-looking guy, and physical, and of course Sun also means fun, happy, funloving, playboy and recklessness.



Both Sun and Eight of Cups also mean leaving, even ‘getting outa here.’ Eight of Cups can mean ‘abandons.’



Today’s main focus is on the stages of a man’s maturity, from reckless brat, to handsome young man to mature grandfather. We also cover regressions therefrom: the old man who has a second childhood, and ‘He never was a kid, was mature even when he was a cute young guy’ as well.





Sun Here we have a lot of meanings, some unrelated to one another, growing out of the illustration of a very young child naked bareback upon a very annoyed pony he is not even holding onto, having the time of his little short life. Some meanings, therefore, are baby, child, boy, fun and funloving, happy, enjoy, relief (because the boy snuck out of the house and its rules), reckless, brat, playboy, getting free, leaving, getting out of the house, running away from home, getting out from under a restricting situation. Summer is one of its meanings, rarely. As a type of person, Sun is the fella who refers to himself as ‘the kid’ and is the ‘charming baby boy’ type women recognize.


Eight of Cups A pilgrim is forced by terrain to change direction, to depart from the course he is on. A change of direction or an abrupt departure or transition is its core meaning, therefore. It’s not just a change of direction, though, it’s also going another way instead. It can mean walking or a pedestrian, sometimes. If you ask about a pilgrimage or vision quest, Eight of Cups may very well show up.


Page of Wands Here’s the handsome, well-dressed, well-spoken respectable young man who is ‘every mother’s son and every woman’s sweetheart.’ He is the eager-to-please apprentice anxious to fit into a grownup life. ‘The fair-haired boy’ type. Page of Wands also refers to talking, to standing up for what you are or what you believe, to ‘physical’ or the physical body.



Emperor has few meanings. He is the old or older man, the authority or the one with seniority, the grownup, self-control or the man who is in control of himself. Emperor is about maturity, the Establishment, conservative values, and power or clout. He can also represent a tyrant or dictator or being rigid.


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.

    Yeah, the older, handsome man I know could have landed on the mature or crazy fun side of the fence. Most likely fun, bless him.

    • God meant some people to serve others, and there are always fellows who make themselves available for that, bless them.

  2. Anna

    This could be about my guy, Simon, what is he thinking about these days?

    • He’s deciding what to think about and can’t quite make up his mind? That’s a pretty broad question, Girl, a long list. Give me a call if you want to diagnose his mind ….
