Tarot Readings for You for August 31, 2013 Saturday(c)

Aug 30, 2013 by

Guidance     Advice is making the distinction between being right and being moral, between being of good repute and doing right by others, giving everyone his due.   In the same way, it makes the distinction between the pay scale for the work and the actual work done for the actual pay.  Such disparities are the norm, we say.   They don’t pay you for doing what you are supposed to.   Doing the accepted thing isn’t doing the right thing.


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.



Hierophant, Six of Pentacles, Eight of Cups





Right away, we have a contrast between doing right by people and/or being treated right by them in the Six of Pentacles story, and the appearance of doing right in Hierophant story. Hierophant (the pope) contrasts the official story (what you learn in Sunday school, the public version of a belief system) and what cognoscenti of that church believe. (Read some textbooks theologians write for other such folks, and you will see this matter in detail.) So Hierophant is ‘the official story,’ the news that’s fit to print. It is about being moral, being respectable, being accepted. (Yes, at times it translates ‘decent’ and harmless or safe, too.)


Since Six of Pentacles is getting paid for work done, and Eight of Cups is something aborted or avoided, we have a financial theme too.


Magician tells us this spread will be about doing, about actions. Eight of Cups tells us the story is about action not being completed, something being avoided or ducked out on or walked away from.


So in the middle we have getting paid. To the left, appropriately and according to the paperwork. To the right, something isn’t finished or doesn’t happen, or doesn’t happen fully. Above, something is done. You can put these together your way, yourself, if you would like to try.





Hierophant is the show, the outward trappings, of religion. That is the pope in his regalia and the priests in theirs, so it is about church, but can refer to the show of any organization or governmental body or religion. It can refer to the show of morallity or religiosity or hypocrisy. (And you don’t have to be Christian to be a hypocrite!) It means the accepted moral conventional whatever, and also means ordinary, normal and ‘no harm.’ ‘For appearance’s sake’ is a good key phrase for this Rider Waite Tarot card. Hierophant is about respectability, about looking clean (‘having a clean nose’). It is a nice normal decent-looking whatever. It is the accepted whatever, is approved, is official. It sometimes means ‘on paper,’ where a certificate makes something valid or legal.



Six of Pentacles is doing right by others, giving others their due, paying the appropriate attention to anything. It is getting paid fairly or paying a fair price, illustrated literally by an employer weighing the coins he is paying the workers.



Eight of Cups abruptly is off the designated route – in this case because the road could go no other way. It means incompletion, detour, re-routing, dropping out, not finishing, quitting, changing your route and changing your ways. It is a turn.



Magician is the active principle, the male principle. It is the act of, doing – any tense of the verb ‘do’ and most tenses of ‘make.’ Magician also means ‘to bring about’ or bring down. No planning or thinking is involved per se in this card’s meaning, just as no action meanings are involved in the Rider Waite card that means the female principle, High Priestess.

  1. Yeah, there’s something to be said, after all, for drinking by yourself at home.

  2. Anna

    Well, my neighbor has left normal decency this week with his public drunkeness
