Tarot Readings for You for September 23, 2013 Monday(c)

Sep 22, 2013 by

Guidance      Advice is all about thinking processes … about changing your mind … about distilling things you know down to one belief … about letting your mind go far afield and come back with something interesting, some inspiration … about coming to a conclusion after experiencing all sorts of theories. Concentrating on too many things at once, flitting from one to the other. Even about running for the exit through smoke.


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 this day.


‘Group 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).

Mind racing from one topic to another seeking inspiration.

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 messages.

*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 contradictions – 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 anyway.


Knight of Pentacles

Seven of Cups – Hanged Man – Knight of Swords




Hmmm, said I when I saw these. Two of the four Rider Waite Tarot citizens are about idea – an inspiration or state of mind or focus or awareness. Those are Hanged Man and Knight of Pentacles. Hanged Man is a subconscious realization producing a eureka awareness consciously. Knight of Pentacles is about one very conscious if not obsessive idea – is about focus.


Then Seven of Cups is many different scattered unrelated items together. It is about confusion and chaos … and smoke and debris and pieces of things lying around. Seven of Cups and Hanged Man is dizzying unrelated thoughts … and Knight of Swords would add ‘racing’ to that. Knight of Swords and either Hanged Man or Knight of Pentacles would say ‘racing thoughts.’


Add to these Knight of Swords’ sudden reversal of direction or changes – including changes back and forth – and you have changes of mind.


So we have a contrast between scattered (Seven of Cups) and focused (Knight of Pentacles), between one (Knight of Pentacles) and many (Seven of Cups). And we have a contrast between deliberation and focus in Knight of Pentacles and being out of control and scattered in Seven of Cups.


These four are a recipe for one’s head to spin. Missing is any action at all! This is one of those pesky consciousness spreads. I hate it when someone asks what another person will do and we get a consciousness spread meaning he’s gonna think.




Seven of Cups     … uh-oh. Many different scattered unrelated items are jumbled together like a heap of trash. Seven of Cups is about confusion and chaos … and smoke and debris and pieces of things laying around. Theories and apparitions. Seven of Cups is the magician who lost control of the critters in The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and is about the critters who got loose from Pandora’s Box. Its signature phrase is … out of control.



Hanged Man     has realized he always knew that! Hanged Man is when you go around saying some aphorism to your friends as if it were very meaningful and they are rolling their eyes at you … Yeah? Hanged Man is when you realize that the friend who said “Well, he had sex with that nun” has a point after you told Friend the story of Husband’s knowing the nun stole the hotel towels, that he saw her put them in her luggage. Hanged Man is the kind of realization that sometimes is quickly followed by a “Duh!” Psychic realization is part of Hanged Man’s territory too.



Knight of Swords     goes back there again … goes back and forth … turns the corner … changes – especially changes direction. He means to pursue and he means to flee. I wish it were not so. He means to be in a hurry and he means speed. His illustration shows a fully armed knight in obvious pursuit, blade extended and leaning forward. His horse’s hair is flying and his horse is flying – both feet off the ground, which is not the way horses run.



Knight of Pentacles     He and his horse are strong and sturdy, short and dark. They are standing still as he contemplates that one thing in his hands (a huge coin). Sometimes he is about self interest: The one thing on his mind is him. He can be a thug too – is at least very physical. Concentrating on one thing is Knight of Pentacles’ main meaning.

    Emily, You must’ve changed the design? I love the new look! I also like the clear instructions. One thing I’ve always been curios about is how the process of a general daily reading work. How do you pull out cards for the general populace?

    • Hmmm, this theme has been here for probably 2 1/2 years or so. Are you thinking of the one with the revolving flowers on its top?
      Yes, I worked (with Anna’s help) on those instructions. I think they are nearly perfect now.
      Pull out cards? I just think ‘Tell the visitors something meaningful to them,’ and choose four cards. If they make only a few sentences, I discard them and choose others, aiming for twenty readings.
      You ought to come around more often, Girl!

    Have definitely felt pulled in to many directions lately, need to step back and clear my head.

    • Maybe a walk in the fall afternoon, taking deep breaths and listening to what the birds have to say, will do ya.

  3. Anna

    I think I know whose brains are scrambled, I’m keeping my distance from him

  4. Jaclyn

    Hi Emily, It does feel like you do these reading just for me. I’ve been doing some training in Neuro Linguistic Programing and Eriksonian Hypnosis. All about the power of the subconscious in sustaining behaviors and beliefs . . . and what profound “duh’s” and “aha’s” we experience when we get behind it all . . . you are amazing . . thank you.

    • That is interesting indeed. I read the 3 very first NLP books.
      Let me know about these things when we talk next.
