Tarot Readings for You for July 26, 2013 Friday(c)

Jul 25, 2013 by

Guidance     About the male-female saga, and about archetypes (or stereotypes) of femininity. We have the sexy spoiled beauty and we have the good lady who has faith in her man or husband. We have the sneaky underhanded male on conquest. And we have the dame who knows how to use those good looks to get the advantage of the dude as well. They are well matched. Our emphasis is on the games the genders engage in.


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.

Queen of Cups

Empress – Six of Wands – Ace of Swords




This whole story is about women because two of the four Tarot citizens at our Rider Waite table today are women.


Empress is the sexpot, the babe, the princess, the spoiled woman, the beautiful woman, and can be the loose woman as well as the ideal woman. The seeming contradictions are explained by the fertility goddess this Rider Waite Tarot card reflects, who of course is all of these, and potentially pregnant too.


Queen of Cups is the good wife who thinks of her man, admires her man. She dreams and she thinks – the stereotypical emotional woman who runs on feelings and is ‘good.’ Naive, even.


So we have these two archetypes of femininity here. And wouldn’t you know here comes a fella ‘on the make,’ a guy with an agenda to get his way with the situation? Six of Wands is about betrayal and using another person, so it is suited to seduction in the Rider Waite Tarot Verbatim ™ system. Six of Wands can also be the indicator of Empress being ‘on the make’ or even attach itself to Queen of Cups.


And the other card is Ace of Swords: to control, to dominate, to force, to win. It also translates ‘have to’ and ‘must.’


Our story today is the eternal man-woman saga, par excellence.




Empress is the sexpot, the babe, the princess, the spoiled woman, the beautiful woman, and can be the loose woman as well as the ideal woman. The seeming contradictions are explained by the fertility goddess this Rider Waite Tarot card reflects, who of course is all of these. Her illustration shows her sitting upon a fine cushion outdoors where everything is growing, wearing a bejeweled tiara, and having a heart-shaped shield with the female symbol upon it. Tradition says she is pregnant. (We are not mentioning meanings that do not apply today: Empress is a multifaceted entity.)


Six of Wands is the deceit and agenda Tarot card in Rider Waite and Tarot Verbatim ™. It is one of the cards the Middle Ages added, and it reflects the story of the betrayal of King Richard Third of England to the Arabs, who imprisoned him at the behest of the usurper to the throne. This is the Pyrrhic victory, the victory that seals a later defeat. This is your friend who seduces the person you love. This is your spouse who doesn’t make the mortgage payments until the house is repossessed and gets the money for the expensive lawyer to beat you in the divorce that way. Et cetera. The look on the face of the horse in the illustration tells all.


Ace of Swords is so straightforward. Here’s a hand holding aloft a sword that has a crown with laurel leaves (victory) on it. It means absolutely, it means ‘all one way’ and none the other way. It means you gotta, must, forced, an order, to dominate. It represents a clear victory for one side and a clear defeat for the other


Queen of Cups is The True Believer. She has faith in (her man). She believes in (her man). She is emotional, she dreams – not an analytical sort. Her stereotype is the southern young woman (in the U. S. Bible Belt). She is pictured contemplating a funky antique, water (emotions) surrounding her throne. Sculpture of babies are on her throne, and there is no vegetation whatsoever, just rocks and water.


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
