Tarot Readings for You for July 23, 2013 Tuesday(c)

Jul 22, 2013 by

Guidance     We narrow our audience today to people who seek to be an authority, a leader. We are telling how to get there, and the advice is somewhat one-sided – limited to respectable pursuits. We all know that leaders are often on the other side of that, in real life. Find the person who is who you want to be, walk that walk, talk that talk, dress and present yourself like that person. Speak with authority right now if you seek to be an authority. Be personable, sane, respectable. People come to you and want to please you when you are up-and-coming. Live the profile, we say.


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 Readings: If you Want to Be a Leader (Nine of Cups and King of Swords)

Knowing who I want to be gives me the strength to be it.


It’s a fact that you are the best authority on who you want to be.


If you want to be a leader, just look strong and know things.


Seek to be the kind of person who has the strength and discipline to get what you are wanting.



King of Swords

Page of Wands – Nine of Cups – Hermit





Here’s another Johnny-one-note layout. It’s obviously about wanting to be a leader, and advice how to do it. It tends to sound preachy; I have toned that down to the best of my ability.



Page of Wands, the first of our tablemates at Tarot Table here is about image, having a good reputation or image, looking good and looking the part, being well-dressed, well-spoken, well-intentioned and even proud of yourself.



Next chair is occupied by Nine of Cups – getting exactly what you want, what satisfies you and makes you content.



Then comes Hermit, the one who is seeking, a person who knows and who brings the solution, who helps. Mainly, today, Hermit is watching, observing the scene regarding what he is seeking. One of his attributes is sobriety, chastity, etc., since he is a monk.



And then above (Where else?) we have the leader, the strong man, the person who is disciplined – the hardassed and hardnosed hard-driven man, even the militant man.



Page of Wands and Hermit are both honest men.



Page of Wands and King of Swords have an image that influences people in a good way.







Page of Wands is the attractive person (male or female) who others pay attention to and think well of. He means to stand for something (anything – see surrounding card or cards), to stand up, to speak up, to stand for. He is dressed for success, a bit foppish even, and is speaking, head tilted back, his hands high on the big stick he carries, looking very attractive, even looking cute. This card often means to speak.



Nine of Cups has whatever he or she wants, and is mighty satisfied – has that “I ate and drank it all” look. I swear he is burping! This is a card with few meanings, is emphatic about those meanings, and is therefore an anchor card. You drool over it showing up as one of the Self cards. It’s the ‘Your wish is granted’ card.



Hermit Today Hermit is the observer, is looking at. He seeks, knows, helps and comes to (whoever/wherever). He is out looking for travelers on the road who need his help. He has a light in the darkness. As a monk, he stands for sobriety, service and chastity.



King of Swords is the authority, the leader, the man (or person) with authority, who has the say, the commander – is militant or military or police. He has that stern Germanic look and posture, and easily holds that heavy sword aloft in a very casual way: He is used to authority, no challenge. He is often police or military.



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

    Stay focused on the goal, don’t let the energy get diffused. Fake it ’till you make it. Great advice, and fits for me today.

    • The drive, the energy to keep things going where you have them pointed: Yeah, that’s the focus all right. Glad it’s useful to you for the day or so.

  2. Anna

    Could be about how I want the guy to be the leader and get the relationship between us going.

  3. Anna

    Hmmm I don’t know what this is about yet
