Tarot Readings for You for August 15, 2013 Thursday(c)

Aug 14, 2013 by

Guidance    is all about how the dirtiest politicians and corporate toxic manipulators are the cleanest talkers.  It’s hard to bring this down, with these particular cards, to the kind of equivalent evil folks we know in ‘real life’ – to the blowhard relative, the sleazy car repair dude.  Nope, this is about corporate and political nasties.  ‘You are an acceptable person when daddy and the family are crazy’ is the closest we come to a mundane (daily life) scene here.


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.

King of Pentacles – Page of Wands – Ten of Cups





King of Pentacles and Moon are the problem.  You don’t want to see these two together in Tarot Verbatim™ or Rider Waite or in real life.   King of Pentacles in Rider Waite is the evil manipulator, the controlling gangster type, the studmuffin, the politician or corporate dictator.



Moon is anything hideous, and it instructs to interpret nearby cards in the negative, or in the worst way.   In fact, it means ‘worst.’   So we have the devious manipulator to the nth degree as two out of four cards in our spread.



The other two cards take the spread away from any working out or solving of the situation.  They are instead a contrast.  Ten of Cups is the happily-ever-after good family, good people, good neighborhood card, and it also means ‘the people,’ which picks up that political theme.



Page of Wands is a smooth talker, spokesperson, the good-looking fella, and about having a good reputation or image.   Put that with King of Pentacles, the manipulative political type, and Moon ‘to the worst degree’ and lying, and it boils down to the glib tongued malicious manipulator.







King of Pentacles is the Studmuffin, the Mover and Shaker, the politician, celebrity or influential man and the rich manipulative flamboyant VIP or wannabe.  His drawing is so full-of-himself.   The design of his clothes suggests the Italianesque look newly rich folks sometimes affect in their home décor.



Page of Wands is the opposite end of that spectrum.  He is the young earnest well-dressed well-spoken stand-up guy … the one we always think we have dated or married in the beginning.  He has the tennis pro look, the ‘fair-haired boy’ type … the way we saw Kennedy back then.



Ten of Cups If Page of Wands is Kennedyesque, Ten of Cups would be Camelot.  It’s the America the politicians talk as if.  It’s ‘of good family’ and the good people, the good neighborhood … you know, like it shows, the big house on the big land with the two kids and the rainbow even over the house.



Moon Rider Waite’s Moon, and thus Tarot Verbatim’s™, is everything gone wrong, evil (road to hell, Left Hand Path), corrupt, perverted, dirty, wrong, nightmare, Evil Incarnate.  The illustration, first of all shows some towers that mean those things.  It also shows nature gone awry: Lobster is purple and going on a land journey; dog and coyote, natural enemies, are together.  Ace of Pentacles is the Right Hand Path and Moon is the Left Hand Path – the straight and narrow, and the road to hell.  Moon is maximum fuckedupness of anything the rest of the cards are talking about. It means insanity and sickness.  But put all the right cards around it, and it can be about the Muse, inspiration, psychism and dreams.



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.

    Wow… as far as I know this one is not for me. But, being savvy and quiet at work is always a good idea.

    • Amen, Sister. Today’s reading, I should have just picked it up and done another one, because it’s really more about politics than our lives.

  2. Lori

    Be savvy and strategic, good advice for my work environment.
