Tarot Readings for You for August 24, 2013 Saturday(c)

Aug 23, 2013 by

Guidance     contrasts strategists with people who accept things as they are.   The strategists get ahead because they use factors that impede their progress to further it, hence they succeed in a hostile environment.  Conformists use diplomacy, good manners and networking for their progress to success. You don’t have to choose the one you incline toward; you can use both means to get where you want to be.  A driven man breaks up with his too-decent woman who loves and admires him, but there’s a gal for him who looks sweet and good who is a cutthroat strategist.


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’ (above) is a summary of what the cards are telling visitors to be aware of that day.


‘Group Analytical Tarot Cards Reading’ (just below this) is the actual word-for-word messages to everyone. These readings are about you and the people around you.  They are about today and the days around it. So, go ahead and pick the sentences you feel are yours and decide whether to encourage or reject them for yourself.


Did you come here for your predictions? –  You are done now –  See you tomorrow. The family of commenters here would love for you to join in (the very last, at the bottom).

Now,  Part Two,


Do you want to know a little, or a lot, about how this Tarot Verbatim™ thing works? If so,


*Go to Learn Tarot by Observing section below. This tells about the combined four pictures in the Tarot Readings –  the pictures above here.  It explains how these four cards get together in your mind to make the message.


*Go to Learn Tarot by the Pictures.  It is what each of the four cards,  by itself,  has to say.  It shows you how that illustration makes that card’s meanings in today’s Spread. 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™.


You can put all this together and intuitively see yourself how Tarot Verbatim ™ works.


This is a group reading, with no Questioner and no Question to limit what the cards say, so there’s more variety – even contractions – and also the pronouns are more flexible.  If it feels like it’s yours, and it says ‘he,’ and you’re a ‘she,’ feel free to adopt it.



Chariot – Three of Swords – Queen of Cups





It is easy to see the contrast going on here between conforming to succeed and being driven to succeed:


Chariot is the adventurer and strategist who aims to … and does … fulfill his purpose, his mission, using every factor at hand to do so, including the factors that operate against him.  He is (or can be) ruthless.  He wins; he is a winner.


Hierophant is conforming, being normal, fitting in, doing no harm, being respectable, doing things by the book, going through channels of protocol. Hierophant is decency, faith, niceness and good manners.


Three of Swords is the hostile environment, the adverse circumstances Chariot must overcome.  Three of Swords commonly means breaking up, enmity or war.  It is a divorce card.


But here comes Queen of Cups! What’s she doing here? – a nice girl like her?   This is the good woman, the loyal wife, the believer in all the things Hierophant stands for.  This nice decent girl thinks, dreams, believes, and has faith in her man.


In this spread, where all the Tarot cards relate to one another equally, we have to be ready for the nice girl to be ruthless, to get ahead and succeed by strategy.  And that, ladies and gentlemen, is our point, is our theme today:  You don’t have to choose the one you incline toward; you can use both means to get where you want to be.




Chariot     is the driven man, the strategist, the go-getter, the ambitious person who gets ahead, the winner, the successful man.  It isn’t a malefic card, it’s objective in its stance.  A skilled charioteer has magic sphinxes hitched to his wagon on this Rider Waite Tarot card. He uses his wand to control them.  One goes only left and the other goes only right: the tendencies of the environment.  He has hitched them so they have to move him forward:  the one that goes left is on the right,  and vice versa:  balancing out the tendencies of the environment.  This card is about not only taking full advantage of the factors that favor your progress but also using the factors that are against your progress for your purpose as well.  Tacking against the wind, mariners call it. They don’t teach this in your average college.



Three of Swords     is heartbreak, breaking up, hostile atmosphere, being against or at war with, hating, rivalry and heart ailments. It also means damage. The illustration – a heart with three swords stuck in it, and storm clouds with rain behind it – gets its point across.



Queen of Cups     is the nice girl, the good woman, the believer, has faith in her man (and usually in God). She is old-fashioned and ever so well-behaved.

Queen of Cups means to think, to figure out, and to have an opinion about. She understands her man.

Illustration shows a blond (the vanilla concept) dreamily contemplating some funky-looking object d’art. The water around her throne means emotion, and there’s a lot of it.



Hierophant     is the concept of what the public is shown versus what is actual. It’s the official story, the church’s ritual that keeps the believers’ minds to the grindstone. It stands for toeing the line, being well-behaved and middle-of-the-road and ordinary, being acceptable to others and polite.

As you can see, he plays well with Queen of Cups – or she with him, but would be very much at odds with Chariot. Illustration is the pope in regalia with priests or monks kneeling to him
