Tarot Readings for You for July 15, 2013 Monday(c)

Jul 14, 2013 by

Guidance     A traumatic gut-wrenching event – divorce, losing house and home, a life change that came precipitously, a death in the family – lingers on haunting life.   Grief accompanies the shock and sadness of those experiences.  Another theme here today is about the time you were going to do something hurtful, and didn’t, and about the overthrow of established ways.


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.

Not sorry anymore about the divorce – is getting married.



Tarot Readings: Emotional Trauma (Five of Cups and Tower)

Leaving home is a wrenching experience that I am still heartsick over.


Some members won’t have anything to do with one another over a long-ago battle.


Haunted by the confrontational temper fit when he left the house.

Suddenly the established values and mores are overthrown – a bad feeling about that.



Four of Wands

Eight of Cups – Five of Cups – Tower




Thematic Apperception Test is an old psychiatric tool that shows four photos and asks you to make a story of them. Our spread here could be one of those.



You got marriage, Four of Wands.



You got divorce, Tower.



You got sudden life change, disruption, taking off in a new direction because you are forced to, Eight of Cups.



And you got regret, feeling heartsick, drinking, being a loser, being broke, being ashamed, Five of Cups.



Four of Wands is a building or house or home, and Tower is a building being destroyed or damaged.



Both Eight of Cups and Tower speak of a sudden change that is unwelcome and unscheduled.






Eight of Cups is a change that happens out of the blue. An interruption, disruption, interception, cut off at the pass. The Rider Waite illustration for it shows a fellow on foot (pilgrim, the books say) has to go in a different direction because the mountain road is following a stream or river.




Five of Cups is grief, regret, sorrow, sorry for the past, failure and loss. A bent black robed figure contemplates spilled wine, ignoring the cups that are not spilled, and the sky is totally gray. With Eight of Cups, it can be about giving up drinking.



Tower shows lightning destroying a building, people falling headfirst out of it. It means disaster, destruction, sudden, shock. It is one of the two divorce cards, and means a fit of temper, confrontation, quitting or being thrown out, rejection, to hit, a heart attack or seizure.



Four of Wands mainly functions as the main marriage card because it pictures a wedding that unites leading families (like marriages of nobility in feudal times). That makes it also stand for Establishment, and hence political entities from neighborhood to nations and more, and for any politician’s position from dogcatcher to grand pooh-bah.


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.

  1. Jules

    Yep, having a sad day. Do feel haunted by a (not too distant)past loss.
    This too shall pass.

  2. Anna

    Oh shit!

  3. Lori

    Yep, the kid left home, the husband walked out, mom died, and then the house was lost…It’s been a couple years but it is still depressing.

    • Lori

      Today has been 18 years since my Dad passed away, maybe I’m bringing that into the cards for today. All happy memories, just miss him.

      • Lori, I keep trying, but I can’t get the answer to your first post to appear where it should. Oh, Well. A dad who leaves good memories has done a whole lot of hard work, and those are precious.

    • I have a list like that, that includes the neighbors getting away with burning my house down. The only good thing about our lists is that they are of things that happened already. Life can be wonderful if you don’t expect it to.
