Tarot Readings for You for September 2, 2013 Monday(c)

Sep 1, 2013 by

Guidance     Our subject: not being afraid, or being afraid, of doing your work or your routine. Trying hard not to is pictured as having the same level of effort as a job would. Anxiety itself makes it such an effort to simply do what you always do, and stops you from fully exerting yourself. Keep trying and the anxiety will phase out. But then again, it’s sometimes the work itself that we areafraid of, that keeps us from putting forth so much effort.


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.


 Five of Wands

Death, Nine of Swords, Eight of Pentacles





These four Rider Waite Tarot people at our Tarot table here make all kinds of phrases. Eight of Pentacles and Five of Wands often means ‘hard work,’ since Eight of Pentacles, the carpenter, is working and Five of Wands obviously means exertion.


Let’s run through it, taking the cards in order of appearance this way: Death is any negative word. Nine of Swords is fear, anxiety, not sleeping, scary. Eight of Pentacles is work or doing one thing after another over and over again. Five of Wands is exertion, trying hard, competition, getting involved, struggle or battle. Look at their pictures, and make some sentences, yourself: This spread is easy.


Taking Death and pairing it with the other three, we have: Not afraid, with Death and Nine of Swords. We have ‘not working’ with Death and Eight of Pentacles. We have not trying, and the end of a struggle, with Death and Five of Wands.


Nine of Swords and Eight of Pentacles together say ‘afraid of work,’ worried about employment, or scared to keep doing that. Nine of Swords and Five of Wands together says ‘afraid to get involved,’ ‘scary violence,’and ‘afraid of competition.’


See, we have the things to be afraid of – cards paired with Nine of Swords which means to be afraid, to be anxious, or to worry – and we have the negative modifier which makes ‘not be afraid.’ That is the central message – among other messages – here today.






Death seldom means death in Tarot Verbatim™ but is The Great Negator, meaning no, never, not, don’t, isn’t and so on forever. Based on the illustration, the bishop collecting the dead king’s crown to crown the next throne-sitter, it should have something to do with succession and transition, with the end of one thing and the beginning of another. Once a year, for me, it may. It often does for other Tarot readers and for other decks. Generally, with most readers and in most decks, no, it isn’t a lead card for death.



Nine of Swords is anguish, worry, fear, mental suffering, anxiety, insomnia, stress, up nights crying, and the illustration shows exactly that.



Eight of Pentacles is repetitive action and work. It often elicits the ‘keep doing’ phrases. Persistence, routine … it has a few meanings that don’t directly involve work or repeatedly doing something. Illustration shows a carpenter making one identical object after another. Oh yes, it also means a workman or workmanlike.



Five of Wands is activity, trying hard, competition, fighting, struggle, aerobic exercise. It shows five fellows whacking one another with boards in a game or a fight.

  1. 9 of Swords stressed
    8 of pentacles about work
    And you could say Death and Five of Wands would be ‘not doing that activity’

    So, we are ‘on point’ for you. Wish we weren’t.

    You will do fine once you jump into the cold pool and swim around a little.

  2. Anna

    I’m stressed about going back to work tomorrow
