Tarot Readings for You for July 7, 2013 Sunday(c)

Jul 6, 2013 by

Guidance     What better time for winning and asserting yourself than when things are looking hopeless? Getting over it, getting out of it, making a detour around it – anything but letting yourself be stymied and losing sleep because you lost your nerve. The picture the four Rider Waite Tarot cards make today says it all: Surrounded by cards that describe panic, quitting and feeling trapped is a hand with a board in it. When you are fighting, nothing is hopeless: Remember this.


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: When Dropping Out is An Achievement (Ace of Wands and Eight of Cups)

I beat that helpless, stifled feeling and am no longer fearful.


Used to be paralyzed by fear: Conquered that!


(You) are getting out of the big things that hold (you) back and worry (you).


Isn’t afraid anymore, has done something about the limitations, about being tied up.


Dropping out of a place where you could not accomplish anything, that got on your last nerve, is an accomplishment.


Leaving a stifling place that gets on your last nerve is an accomplishment. Whew!


Doesn’t worry anymore about not being able to have sex.


Don’t get nervous and give up; you rule!


When (he) can’t dominate you, (he) will be scared and leave.



Tarot Readings: Getting Out of the Box (Eight of Cups and Eight of Swords)

You can’t be upset about it, you just have to quit!


Fix waking up at night and you won’t feel helpless.


Worry/Fear is the main thing that holds you back: step out of it.


When you are stuck, you just have to not be overwhelmed.


You wake up in the middle of the night feeling afraid and helpless, like ‘I gotta get out of here.’


When you cannot do what you have to do, it’s no use being upset.


I am leaving a hopeless situation behind, a major achievement, and here I am crying over it.


I gotta get out of this stifling nerve-wracking situation.


Gotta get outa this box, it’s getting to me.


Can’t cry about it, have got to get over it.


Have/Has to get over grieving the death.


Conquered being helpless, quit all the regrets.


When you are stuck, you mustn’t be overwhelmed.



Tarot Readings: Get Upset When I Can’t (Nine of Swords and Eight of Swords)

Don’t cry if you can’t win.


You did it, it’s over, you can’t cry over it.


Can’t sleep, have to get up in the middle of the night.


The one thing I can’t do is leave grief behind.


He/She grieves that he/she can’t have sex anymore.



Tarot Readings: Death and Near-death (Eight of Cups and Eight of Swords)

A near-death experience puts you on a different course, necessarily.


You have to die but don’t worry about it right now.


Grieving the death of the departed takes precedence.


What has you so sleepless will be over for sure when he/she/it dies.


Eight of Swords

Nine of Swords – Ace of Wands – Eight of Cups





Whoa! In the middle we have to assert, to win, ‘must’ or ‘have to,’ dominate and, of course, sex: That Ace of Wands entity.



To the left is crying, worrying, being up nights, being nervous – Nine of Swords.



To the right is quitting, walking off, leaving in the middle – Eight of Cups.



Above is ‘can’t’ and being stifled or limited or boxed in, which is the actual death card – Eight of Swords.



So … yeah, it looks like we gotta overcome something, or that we have overcome some milestone challenge.



Take Ace of Wands out of this spread, and we just cry about it, quit and die. There it is in the midst of potentially crushing challenges, in the Dark Night of the Soul, making a noteworthy story of Your Life.



This spread is a great example that a preponderance of ‘bad’ cards does not necessarily mean something awful is upon you.





Nine of Swords is so stressed, is up nights worrying or crying, is nervous. Oh, wah. You let it get to ya, didn’ ya? His picture is a person sitting up in bed, hands to head in the boo-hoo or headache position. Nine swords are on the wall. Scared too, huh?



Ace of Wands asserts itself, wins, it HAS to, it dominates, it is sexual energy from the male standpoint. Nothing complex here. And its design is a penis-looking branch that is sprouting, held aloft in the right hand.


Eight of Cups quits, walks off, defaults, drops out, is run off the road, changes course in midstream. The pilgrim (That’s what the person is supposed to be.) changes course because the road forces it, in our illustration.



Eight of Swords is about being unable, boxed in, limited, trapped, helpless, tied up, having no choice. Vividly illustrated by a blindfolded lady tied up in a swamp surrounded by swords, the home way up on top of the mountain with no path to it. This is the actual death card in Tarot Verbatim(TM).



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.
