Tarot Readings for You for April 28, 2013 Sunday(c)

Apr 27, 2013 by

Guidance So what have we got to say, overall, here? It boils down to sometimes you get things going the way you want by talking, saying, explaining, presenting your case, and then again, sometimes you should shut up or not say anything in the first place. That sounds simplistic, but it is about timing, and timing is the turning point in our histories, isn’t it

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. 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.

Yeah, you want to go on and on, and I don’t want to hear it.

 

I keep telling you what I want and you do not respond.

 

Someone talks incessantly about not being happy.

 

Over and over, what I say falls on deaf ears.

Tarot Readings: Happy About What Didn’t (Star and Four of Cups)

Sometimes I am happy that I didn’t get what I prayed for.

 

Sometimes we are happy when we do not get what we want.

 

So happy, so grateful, about the things that are NOT going on.

When I’m not erratic, I will be pleased with my performance.

 

No more ups and downs, be as happy as you want to be.

 

Can’t say what I really want; I’m being indecisive.

LEARN TAROT BY OBSERVING

.

First thing that hits you in the face looking at these shiny Rider Waite Tarot faces who have shown up at our table for today is Star and Nine of Cups … totally happy and thrilled. Star is enthusiasm, feeling great, thrilled, a fine performance. Nine of Cups is things going exactly the way you want, getting everything you want, feeling satisfied and gratified. Being grateful and being pleased are an undertone of the convergence of these two in Tarot Verbatim(TM).

 

 

Four of Cups is a naysayer here. It doesn’t go through, or it isn’t what you want, or that isn’t what was said.

 

 

Two of Pentacles is a very flexible Tarot card that is often about cycles: off and on, up and down, sometimes and sometimes not, and it also means continuing, on and on, keeps being or doing. It also means silly and indecisive.

 

 

So Four of Cups and Two of Pentacles can converge into ‘sometimes and sometimes not’ and ‘isn’t continuing’ and ‘Don’t be indecisive.’

 

 

Both Star and Two of Pentacles refer to performances. Star is singing or speaking. Two of Pentacles is juggling and dancing. Together, they say ‘The show must go on.’

 

 

Much of what we interpret here today is Star and Two of Pentacles along the lines of ‘keep talking.’ They combine with Four of Cups to say ‘Don’t keep talking,’ as in ‘Don’t drone on.’

 

 

So what have we got to say, overall, here? It boils down to sometimes you get things going the way you want by talking, saying, explaining, presenting your case, and then again, sometimes you should shut up or not say anything in the first place. That sounds simplistic, but it is about timing, and timing is the turning point in our histories, isn’t it?

 

 

LEARN TAROT BY PICTURES

.

Star We see a ceremonial ablution (bath) here. She pours one pitcher into the water and one onto the earth while she sings, or maybe talks (chants?). So Star’s main branches of meanings are about the performance and the talking or expressing. It also means joy, to enjoy, to love and say ‘I love you,’ to feel great, to have good health, and of course a bath. I think of Star as singing in the shower because that is its mood, you know?

 

Nine of Cups ‘Best card in the deck’ is his reputation: Your wish is granted is his main message. Negatively modified, it may – and only may – mean not getting what you want. Very powerful focused meaning, here. Being pleased and gratified or pleasing someone. Satisfaction. He can be excess, greed, wanting it all or gluttony – and he can mean being content and satisfied with what you do have. He is less influenced by other cards than usual, but, yes, other cards do modify his applications. The illustration shows a fat fellow with a abig grin on his face and nine empties behind him.

 

Four of Cups This illustration denotes ‘most all of his meanings. There he sits with arms and legs crossed, looking down, as yet another cup is offered by the hand in the sky. ‘Ain’t havin’ no part of that.’ To refuse, to not go through or get through, to say ‘No’ and mean it.

 

 

Two of Pentacles A fellow in a goofy costume with a dunce hat juggles pentacle plates while he dances around, an eternity sign connecting them, as ships are tossed up and down on crazy waves in the background.

 

The idea of motion is clear here: round and round, up and down, back and forth, spinning.

 

The idea of continuing is clear to. The either-or, which we express by rocking our hand from thumb to pinkie, is less obvious.

 

Two of Pentacles is a very flexible Tarot card that is often about cycles: off and on, up and down, sometimes and sometimes not, and it also means continuing, on and on, keeps being or doing. Less often, this Tarot citizen means silly and indecisive.

 

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 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.

    Thanks for another on-target reading. I just finished saying what needed to be said in a text message. How convenient to not have to put up with all the whining . . .

    • Yes, yes yes. I used to what my younger sister for whining. It’s really good that you have such a winning streak going with our site here.

    Another possible interpretation using the same meanings: the Two of Cups is precisely about balancing The Star and The Four of Cups. Meaning: the balance of choosing precisely what causes singing and that which allows the expression of joy in precisely what you prefer (Star) and at the same time exercising the same power of choice to turn away those things which you do not prefer (Four of Cups). In other words: the proper balancing (Two of Pentacles) of joyfully jumping in and saying yes to what you prefer (Star) while at the same time exercising the power of saying no to those things you do not prefer (Four of Cups) leads to the fulfillment of what you desire (Nine of Cups). [NEW PARAGRAPH]

    The Star has it’s own meaning within it regarding balancing and joy: pour precisely the amount of joy which is required onto the land to make it fruitful (her right hand from our perspective) while at the same time pouring the excess joy back into source (the left). So in addition to balancing saying yes (Star) and no (Four of Cups) the enquirer is additionally advised to balance the yes and no within the yes – meaning: an excess of Yes and Joy beyond what is required for the current situation will cause over-watering and a failed crop, so you must say no to yes, too; it is best to pour any excess water (Yes; Joy) back into the source instead of giving into the thoughts that you needs must give more joy for the effect or request to become manifest. This ties into Emily’s reading “don’t ramble on”. This whole reading can be summed up partially as: Know when to stop, know when to go. How do you know? Listen to your heart. [NEW PARAGRAPH]

    The Nine of Cups is on the Star’s right hand, making complete the notion that the correct balance in pouring yes produces the fertile land that leads directly into the Nine of Cups fulfillment. On the other hand, the hand on the Four of Cups is blocking the Grumpy Gus access to the treasure of the Nine of Cups; meaning that even though saying no is integral to the process, in the end it is not the Grumpy Gus (Four of Cups) who receives the abundance; The Star also is turned away from the abundance, meaning she receives the abundance but only as a intermediary between the Two of Cups and The Nine of Cups after the Four of Cups unlocks the desire by saying no to other desires. Meaning: the resolution of the Two of Cups into the Nine of Cups is done by both the Four of Cups and the Star, but neither the Yes nor the No actually get the abundance: both are gateways to it – it is the enquirer who balances properly (Two) that turns into the enquirer that receives the desire (Nine) by proper balance between the actions of Yes (Star) and No (Four) and then between the Yes and No within the Yes. It is the dude in the Nine of Cups that receives from the properly executed process.

    The naysayer (Four of Cups) is the key which unlocks the power of the Star, because if you say yes to everything, you end up with nothing. The Star manifests what the Four of Cups gives access to: once you decide what to say no to what you end up with is a yes, yet it is not enough to merely say yes to what is left. but really dive in with balanced joy to drive the desire home.

    • In one sentence, it would be: Both saying ‘yes’ to this and ‘no’ to that make the most worthwhile life for you.

      Thank you for your dissertation, there – it’s much appreciated, BD.
