Tarot Readings for You for May 5, 2013 Sunday(c)

May 4, 2013 by

Guidance    Some ideas I accept without a fuss as mainstream or established, some things are not worth fighting about, some people are not worth fighting with, and some days are just made for lying around and taking a nap. Today is one of them.



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!

.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: Lazy Day, Couch Potato (Four of Swords)

You get that feeling: Everything is okay, I don’t have to get up.


I get it: I have to make myself take a nap for my own good.


I realize I ought to get up and do, but here I lie.


Realize it’s okay to be lazy when you’re a go-getter.


I have an urge to get (you) out of bed, and it’s the right idea.


Got to get some sleep to get my head straight.


I am very much against the status quo but realize there’s nothing to be done about it.


When he protests, he is ‘crying wolf’: We know everything’s all right, so we don’t rouse ourselves.


Something is recognized and established as such a difficult challenge we don’t bother to do anything about it.


I put up with the mouthy individual this long because I realize that’s normal for (her).


The average Joe resists thinking that hard.


Some things I accept without a fuss




Tarot Reading: Make Someone Behave (Hierophant and Seven of Wands)

Just don’t respond to his hellraising; he will get the idea to behave.


He isn’t doing what he should but your indignation only turns him on.


A showdown about (him) laying around the house and thinking (he’s) entitled to.


Someone who does nothing is the one who makes my life difficult with his ideas about how things should be.



Tarot Readings: Got to Get Out (Four of Swords and Seven of Wands)


I am sooo stuck in a rut, I feel I gotta break loose.


My thinking is ‘in the box, I gotta get out and get inspired.



Tarot Readings: Oppose or Protest (Seven of Wands)

Don’t bother to oppose accepted ideas.


People don’t respond to the alarm when you go against ingrained established ideas.


Ideas are accepted when no one opposes them.


When no one challenges you, figure you are mainstream.


I realize I ought to do it when people protest that I haven’t done it.


Realize things aren’t going to be the way I think they should no matter how hard I push.


I don’t really think: I just fight the Establishment.


A right idea will survive opposition on its own, with no help from me.


I still think that way precisely because I’m right if it gets you all stirred up like that.


The Church is against thinking for yourself, so don’t.


Hanged Man

Hierophant – Four of Swords – Seven of Wands







The contrast today is Four of Swords’ couch potato and Seven of Wands’ protest. The hellraiser (Seven of Wands) and the one who sleeps through it (Four of Swords). Getting all excited (Seven of Wands) and being indifferent (Four of Swords).



In our other two Rider Waite tablemates, we contrast inspired thought or instinctual feeling (Hanged Man) with accepting the status quo, being mainstream or Establishment (Hierophant).



Some ideas I accept without a fuss as mainstream or established, some things are not worth fighting about, some people are not worth fighting with, and some days are just made for lying around and taking a nap. Today is one of them.




Hierophant Established ideas, the Establishment, the rut we are in, what we accept as normal (or what is normal), mainstream, ingrained ‘in the box’ stuff, the usual, being okay and harmless. Ought and should and for our own good. The right (whatever). Entitled and entitlements, and ‘how things should be.’ That’s the pope’s (Hierophant’s) turf.


Four of Swords All the things that don’t move you, that you don’t do anything about, that’s Four of Swords. He is also the couch potato, the lazy person, and you on a Sunday telling yourself to take a nap already.


Seven of Wands Get up! Seven of Wands raises an alarm or raises hell. Seven of Wands wants to fight, is confrontational, or invades a person’s privacy or turf, or breaks in. Seven of Wands is getting our blood moving, mad as hell and won’t take it anymore too.



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.

    Some fresh air today… and two naps.

    • You know, I felt nappish. Wonder if everybody is sacked out. I brought a lot of good food to the church that I rent from, that provided me with supplies and clothes and appliances after the fire. So I got some fresh air outdoors at the group meal.
