Tarot Readings for You for June 17, 2013 Monday(c)

Jun 16, 2013 by

Guidance     The old-fashioned way of life is under fire. (Mr. Rogers died, and with him that legendary neighborhood.) Our mission, should we choose to accept it, is to make a safe corner in a world under siege. Today we focus on defending our corner and on having the satisfying life of enough to be at peace.


Instructions: Are YOU here for the first time? Come in! People love this place! Our site is divided into four sections: Guidance, Tarot Readings, Learn Tarot by Observation, and Learn Tarot by Pictures.

If you just want your daily look ahead, Guidance and Tarot Readings are all you need. ‘Guidance’ is a summary of what the cards are generally advising visitors to be aware of that day. ‘Tarot Readings’ is the actual word for word messages to everyone. So, go ahead and pick the sentences you feel are yours and decide whether to encourage or reject them for yourself. THEN, the family of commenters here would love for you to join in.

Nine of Cups

Six of Cups – Knight of Pentacles – Nine of Wands




Six of Cups and Nine of Cups are the good life. The sweet life of home and children in Six of Cups, and the good life of having what is satisfying to us in Nine of Cups. The illustrations express that: Six of Cups shows a little boy giving a little girl flowers on the street, and Nine of Cups shows the feeling of satisfaction after a big dinner.

Nine of Wands is defending the turf, feeling defensive, accused, under fire. His world is anything but a safe place: He is already wounded from defending the line he still stands on.

Knight of Pentacles has a priority he focuses on: First things first. He is the tough guy, can even be the macho punk type. He can be the threat Nine of Wands is speaking of: We want to know whether he is the defender of the good life, or a menace to it.

The old-fashioned way of life is under fire. (Mr. Rogers died, and with him that legendary neighborhood.) Our mission, should we choose to accept it, is to make a safe corner in a world under siege. Today we focus on defending our corner and on having the satisfying life of enough to be at peace.





Six of Cups    Mr. Rogers’ neighborhood, right here. A warmly dressed little boy is on the street in front of where he lives, and is handing a pot of flowers to a little girl of the same age who is by herself and also well-dressed. Six of Cups is the sweet life, romance, children, safety and security, a home (especially a cozy one), love and affection, and all those warm fuzzy feelings.


Knight of Pentacles     is a physically strong guy who is focused on his main purpose. He is determined and he is energetic: He is the herd bull type fella, and we hope he is the defender of the family, the neighborhood, the way of life, and not the macho punk fellow who is its menace. Here, he and his horse are pictured as muscled, stocky and dark.


Nine of Wands     is the defender, the vet who is wounded in combat. Nine of Wands is you when you are being pressured or accused or both, you standing your ground against whatever threat of whatever kind. Nine of Wands is when turf is under siege. It is being haunted by the past, having something held over you, being in the sway of unpleasant outside influence. The defender is expected to win in Nine of Wands, by the way.


Nine of Cups    is being pleased with what you have – satisfied, content – although it can also be greed (but not today). It’s about enough, about being pleased with home, children and friends and feeling mighty fine right here right now.


EXPLANATIONS: [Use the arrow at lower right to skip this and go to Comments.]

All the words of each Tarot card reading you see here are a phrase-by-phrase translation of the scene pictured on those cards: no filler, no psychic impressions, no spirit guide. Word-for-word Tarot Verbatim(TM).

In these group readings, there’s no question (and no Questioner) to limit what the four cards can mean, so they can mean opposite things.

When there is a negative-meaning card (a ‘negator,’ I call them), the readings contradict one another because that card can make any of the other cards in the spread negative. Negator cards mean things like: no, never, not, end, can’t, etc. Never be queasy about the number of ‘bad’ card because it takes two bad cards to say ‘not dead’ and only one to say ‘dead.’

Without a question or a Questioner, pronouns (I, you, he, she, we, they, etc.) are very flexible. I leave out pronouns in writing this as much as possible – awkward to do that sometimes. When I put them in parentheses, feel very free to change them around to suit yourself.

Now in a ‘real’ individual reading, the questioner asks a specific question which provides at least half the information! In an individual’s 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 more 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 successfully addresses the group of visitors, whoever they are. It provides useful information that applies to their daily lives: They tell you this in the comments, for three years now. Tarot can tell you things about people you don’t know personally – such as whoever on your job has a say in your raise or continued employment there, whether that is one person or many. Visitors report that the information is equally accurate for new visitors as it is for the family of regular visitors.

Do you want to read Rider Waite Tarot, yourself? Start with Learn Tarot by Pictures to get the day’s cards’ individual meanings; then read Learn Tarot by Observation, which gives you the thinking those four cards inspire in a qualified reader. Next, Group Analytical Tarot Cards Reading is the various things those four cards can say (without a question to guide them). Then, Guidance is a summary.

In this way, your intuition allows you to learn to read the cards without much effort if you come often enough. Regular visitors can just put it together.
