Tarot Readings for You for June 29, 2013 Saturday(c)

Jun 28, 2013 by


Guidance     Re dark-night-of-the-soul times: The way a desperate person looks at his downside determines what if anything he does in that moment about the situation.  Determination, when we are weak, focuses what resources we do have on doing something that just-maybe can turn the situation around.  Determination bypasses the paralysis that despair can bring on.   In bad times, it’s a person’s focus or attitude, or the way he characterizes (within his own heart) a terrible fix, that either attracts paralysis or gets him doing something – anything – rather than doing nothing.


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.

Tarot Verbatim: In Desperate Times, Focus! (Five of Pentacles and Knight of Pentacles)


Tarot Readings: Your Thinking About Your Job (Page of Pentacles and Eight of Pentacles)




Tarot Verbatim: In Desperate Times, Focus! (Five of Pentacles and Knight of Pentacles)


When you think of what you don’t have, think even more about what to do about it.


Know what is depleting you, focus on what to do about it.


Feeling not up to it? – Make yourself do one thing at a time.


Thinking one thought at a time only limits your thinking.


Self-pity keeps you obsessed.


Is aware of the handicap but more aware of getting things done.


Seeing yourself as disadvantaged is the one thing that keeps you there.


I see clearly it’s my own idea that I’m worthless, and I’m working on this.


Wills himself to keep at it, knowing he is ill.


When you are downtrodden, find motivation to persist.



Tarot Readings: Your Thinking About Your Job (Page of Pentacles and Eight of Pentacles)


Poverty consciousness or work consciousness.


The working poor know and still do their job.


Thinking of yourself as a worker is one way to be poor.


When he sees the workingmen so poor, he is motivated to be ambitious.


The job he wants more than anything, he knows he is unqualified for.


He is an apprentice for slave wages until he can do the main skill.


You need the money badly and you know that job is yours.


You are obsessed with thinking this job is so beneath you.


Thinks of himself as a workingman and is motivated by what he doesn’t have.


He identifies being a man with being a worker, and he is unemployed.


He is ashamed of himself because of this idea about what he does for a living.


Working for slave wages gives him the idea he is inferior.






Eight of Pentacles


Five of Pentacles – Page of Pentacles – Knight of Pentacles









This is an interesting bunch! Here are THE two cards that mean to focus, to have an idea, and one’s identity. Page of Pentacles is a person’s image, a person’s self-image, to think, the thought, to be; and Knight of Pentacles is to concentrate, to focus on one thing or concept, to be tough and manly.



Then we have poverty, and the job. Poverty is the Five of Pentacles in Rider Waite Tarot, and it means to be ashamed, to be lacking or inferior, to be ill, to be downtrodden or pathetic, specifically to be blighted in consciousness. To be numb with despair.



The job is Eight of Pentacles, and it also means to keep at it, to do one thing after another, to be a workingman or working class, and steady effort.



Knight of Pentacles is determination and strength; Five of Pentacles is self-pity and weakness.



Knight of Pentacles is determined, and Eight of Pentacles is persistent.








Five of Pentacles is living at the depths of despair, being in dire want, self-pity, dark night of the soul, being homeless, lonely or in grief. It is also about being sick, handicapped or having that worthless feeling that accompanies clinical depression. It is about not knowing the cure anymore you are so engrossed in the disease. Pictured are a mother and son injured and freezing walking past a cathedral that would have food and warmth for them. Are these the same people in Six of Swords who escape from the bad scene?




Page of Pentacles is a person’s image, a person’s self-image, to think, the thought, to be. He or she is the student or apprentice looking to please others, looking to learn – the student. The illustration in Rider Waite shows a young person focusing his or her mind on the pentacle at hand.




Knight of Pentacles is a similar card in Rider Waite to its preceding Page. He means to be determined (‘one thing on his mind’), to concentrate, to focus on one thing or concept, to be tough and manly. His illustration shows a tough short sturdy dark fellow on a tough short sturdy dark horse.





Knight of Pentacles is working on it, a workingman, keeping steadily at it or being persistent, repetitive action, doing the same thing over and over again. His illustration shows a workingman making the same item over and over again, persistently.




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.
