Tarot Readings for You for November 1, 2013 Friday(c)

Oct 31, 2013 by

Guidance      centers on war and peace today, on settling differences by hashing things out and coming to a peaceful coexistence. Some of us are for Whatever It Is and some of us are against it, but most of us make an effort to get along and resonate somewhere near the middle. Fighting for what’s right can become a holy war and get you dysfunctional. Someone says “I’m in love with a screwed-up person who acts violent.” People who are ill struggle to get well.


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 thing, 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 messages.

*Go to Learn Tarot by 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.


Ace of Cups

Magician – Ten of Pentacles – Five of Wands





Ten of Pentacles in Rider Waite is one of the family-marriage-community cards; there are three of them. Ten of Pentacles in Tarot Verbatim is a division or schism in a group, or represents any dysfunctional group at all – whether at home, at work, in public life, etc. It can be patients in a treatment facility. It can be a gang, mob, political entity at any level, corporation or company at any level. It can be a neighborhood, an ethnic group, any bunch of people who have something in common, usually something problematical. People who have a problem or people who are a problem. People who have trouble, are in trouble, or are troublemakers.

It can be a meeting of persons who disagree or are working something out – like the Continental Congress. Strife is inherent but not overt in Ten of Pentacles.

Its illustration is a multi-generational family disagreement. (Note I said ‘in Tarot Verbatim.’ Other people, and other decks, have a different niche for this card.)

The strife that is inherent in Ten of Pentacles is overt in Five of Wands. They talk in Ten of Pentacles; they whack each other in Five of Wands. Five of Wands is the fight, the struggle, being against, the opposition or opposing. A lot of energy, working up a sweat – even exercising – belong to Five of Wands. So Ten of Pentacles and Five of Wands are people who oppose one another, factions who fight one another, or even gang warfare.

So, after two cards that both connote strife, here come two that, together, mean ‘make peace.’ It is this contrast that is the main theme of our layout today. See how that works?

Magician simply represents whatever the action is today. He simply means: to do, to make, to bring about, to be the one who does (or man who does, usually). Ace of Cups has more meanings than he does. Ace of Cups means, among other things, peace, healing, getting along or cooperating – going with the flow. It is a love card (true love, most of the time), and it means to agree, to permit or let, to be copacetic.


Like I said, Magician simply represents the action being done today. With Ace of Cups , peace, he is making peace. So Magician and Ace of Cups are making peace or agree or love one another. With Five of Wands , war, he is making war or fighting. So Magician and Five of Wands are a person who starts a fight or who is engaged in some struggle. Ten of Pentacles shows people who are members of a circle who are having, and presumably working out, some issue or disagreement.





Magician One hand raised to heaven, the other to earth, the tools of his trade on the table, Magician is in the process of making something he wills happen. This card’s meanings are few and grow directly out of the illustration: to do, to make, to bring about, to act, to start or instigate; to take initiative. Esoterically, as a ‘1,’ Magician represents the male principle, which is active on the physical plane, as High Priestess represents passivity on the physical plane, being active in mental and spiritual realms.


Ten of Pentacles hinges upon disagreement in the human group or is a disagreeable human group.  This is us when we have problems with other people – any group at all – home life and relatives, workplace, neighbors, legal disputes, political or public life.

The illustration is so perfect for this:  You can see the family quarrel here.  Grandpa in his fancy chair overlooking it all while the couple is having one of those ‘marital discussions’ with the guy staring away from the woman who talks earnestly at him, the squalling brat clawing at her clothes. Even the dogs are on the boss’ side.



Five of Wands shows a fight or competition. Fellows are sparring, or are energetically attacking one another, with log-sized boards. Meanings that arises from this illustration are pretty straightforward: fight or fighting, struggle, oppose or opposition, against, a lot of energy, exercise.



Ace of Cups has a spectrum of meanings arising from its illustration, which is a diagram of Roman Catholic concepts. As I understand, the dove and wafer represent Holy Communion, and the water with the fountain flowing into the (presumably) ocean represent the idea that Holy Spirit indwells the human body and its fluids, and from there flows out into the world to have a good effect on surroundings. Today, Ace of Cups is about peace and love, about peacemaking and cooperation among people.

    Emily waiting fr ur wonderful reading fr today…………hope to see it v v soon.

    • Well Sonia, today I had several readings, helped unload a truck too. And Saturday’s was more work than usual, I felt.
      This new format adds more than an hour to the blog’s time. Would like to know what it means, if anything, to you. It seems a lot of people read the whole blog, which is amazing compared to other blogs. The new format adds to your reading. Is it worth it to you?

  2. Jaclyn

    Your reading addresses exactly what’s going in my workplace at this very moment. Two teams teams needing to work collaboratively . . . some members taking whacks others . . . some trying to make peace. You’ve helped me be more optimistic. Thanks Emily.

    • I read today with that in mind. I swear Tarot follows you around like the NSA. I REALLY appreciate you taking the time to tell the world this.

      Do you value the Learn Tarot by Observation new format, with the small pictures of Tarot cards? It’s a lot of extra (mind-bending) work, and adds a lot of reading to the blog.

      Asking for a report from all the visitors: Do you like this? Is it ‘too much’?
