Tarot Readings for You for October 25, 2013 Friday(c)

Oct 24, 2013 by

Guidance      We are making the place safe – are on the lookout for trespassers upon our peace and quiet: cheaters, traitors to our trust, thieves – all sorts of criminal activities. We are even preventing risks and hazards, and warning people about harm they are doing to themselves. “You know something’s up when no one is talking to you.” Someone admits he is not a monk, he takes chances.


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.


Seven of Swords

Eight of Wands – Four of Cups – Hermit




How I cut the number of Tarot Readings sentences to the bone, here! We are a study in contrasts, and we make many, many phrases.

The first focal point is Hermit and Seven of Swords. Hermit is honest, calm, rational (just the facts) and truthful, careful, monogamous or celibate, is seeking or observing something (he) is interested in, is religious, a devoted and helpful friend. Seven of Swords is a sneak, is abandoning the scene (getaway), is a thief, a double-crosser or traitor, an adventurer or daring, a cheat, even an assassin or spy. (I left out the black ops theme for Seven of Swords.) So Hermit is a man of peace and Seven of Swords may be military. Together, these two Rider Waite Tarot cards say ‘witness a crime,’ ‘assess risks,’ ‘It’s true about the double-cross,’ ‘You know how risky that is.’ They even say ‘an honest crook.’

There’s a contrast in the remaining pair of Rider Waite Tarot cards too, Eight of Wands and Four of Cups. Eight of Wands is more and more (increasingly) or many or a lot of, is talking or telling, is a list of things and means ‘fast’ too; Four of Cups is denying, is ‘none of that,’ not talking, no way, it stops here. Together they are ‘none of the above’; they are taking the Fifth. Some excerpt phrases are: “More and more, he does not.” “A number of them are not.” “I am not having anything to do with any of them.” Do you see how these two could also say ‘Cross it off the list’?

Eight of Wands and Hermit is telling the truth, having all the facts, is a lot of friends, helpers, sensible people or observers. Eight of Wands and Hermit also say ‘more and more devoted.’ These two Rider Waite Tarot cards describe reading a document, the facts in writing or in a document, a sincere letter to a friend – even ‘religious writing,’ which might be scriptures. Eight of Wands and Hermit are about examining or investigating one after another, a lot of witnesses, or a lot of help or helpers – or ‘help is on the way.’ Together, they can simply say ‘facts’ too, because Eight of Wands makes things plural, remember?

Eight of Wands is a pluralizer (makes other Tarot cards’ meanings plural), as well as being a list, talking, documents and indicating ‘quickly’ or ‘fast.’ Here are Seven of Swords’ words for today: get away with it, fools around, sabotage and self-sabotage, bad boys, risks and risky, double-cross, danger and dangerous, hazardous, takes chances, harm and self-harm, ‘making off with,’ meaning stealing, theft, criminal and lowlife, daring, spies and snoops. Together, Eight of Wands and Seven of Swords say ‘says he fools around’ and ‘is a danger to others,’ and ‘takes a lot of chances,’ and ‘putting it is writing is too risky.’ ‘Tell him it’s too risky,’ ‘tell him he is harming himself,’ ‘one of the people making off with,’ ‘all the lowlifes,’ ‘these things are too dangerous,’ ‘a number of them are snoops,’ ‘a list of hazardous materials’ are some of the things these two Tarot cards have said today. Can you see how the two could just say ‘thefts’?

Four of Cups and Hermit is generally about not being honest or not believing the facts or the truth, not looking, refusing to see things as they are, denying the truth – won’t be sensible or sober or monogamous. Refusing to play it safe. These two can also say “That is not the truth, or not true.” Hermit means to look, search, observe, believe and understand, so Four of Cups and Hermit also say ‘know (he) won’t,’ and ‘aware (he) denies.’ Hermit investigates, so Hermit and Four of Cups could also say ‘The investigation finds no’ (whatever). And of course, ‘refuse to look, refuse to investigate’ is also on the table, with Four of Cups meaning ‘refuse.’ Hermit is realistic, so you get ‘not being realistic’ when you put Four of Cups next to it.

Four of Cups often serves as a negative modifier of its associate Tarot cards. One of its meanings is not letting something through, not letting something happen. Seven of Swords is the daring risk-taker, is dangerous, is getting away with some shenanigan or crime. He is a double-crossing lowlife. He is a thief, an assassin. He robs you, his buddy. This card stands for hazards and means ‘hazardous.’ But watch for Seven of Swords to mean ‘have the guts to’ as well, to indicate revenge, or to mean ‘you pull it off.’ Here are some of the things these two cards have said in our Tarot Readings: You can’t get away with it. Nothing to do with the bad boys. Does not take risks, or Don’t take chances. Not a daring person. No more criminal activity. Isn’t cheating. But not if it is dangerous. Isn’t a crook. Isn’t breaking the law. Denies he did the trespassing. Not let hazardous material through. Won’t let them take risks.




Eight of Wands Mainly is adjectives that mean ‘many’ or ‘a lot of.’ Eight of Wands is about messages, talk, a list, one after another, increasingly. It also means ‘fast’ or ‘quickly’ and its synonyms. It serves to make nearby cards plural. For example, if Hermit is meaning ‘friend,’ Eight of Wands makes that: friends, all the friends, many friends, more and more friends, or more and more friendly. The illustration could be better: boards one on top of the other fly through the air.


Four of Cups isn’t accepting, isn’t listening, isn’t about to, won’t have anything to do with, refuses to, is not reachable.  Nothing goes through here.  “No.”  Illustration aptly depicts that:  A disembodied hand holds out yet another cup to a person whose arms and legs are crossed, whose head is averted.


Hermit Shows a monk out looking for travelers who need help at night in the cold.  Its disparate meanings arise from that illustration:  Comes to help, comes to the other person, sincerely devoted, honest person, monogamous or celibate, truth and true, a night trip or trip or being on the road, look for or investigate, an old or older man, a healer or counselor..


Seven of Swords That’s the sneaky person.  That’s the cheater or double-crosser.  That’s the criminal or the one who sneaks out and violates the rules.  It’s the illegal act or illegal person.  That’s you getting away with it, or getting even … a little ‘street justice.’  Seven of Swords is a hazard or hazardous material as well.  It is a hazardous mission, a reconnaissance or black ops or illegal caper … which does not have to be an official one; it can be a person on that kind of adventure privately.  It stands for daring, and for self-destructive acts and persons.

  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I
    think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for
    me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will
    try to get the hang of it!

    • If only I had a technical person to do that end of it, I would have a video course that gives anyone who can see parallels and patterns the ability to accurately read Tarot verbatim.
      You can call for training if you like.
      MEANWHILE, start at the bottom, at ‘Learn Tarot by Pictures.’ There you get the meaning of individual cards, related directly to their illustrations. Next, ‘Learn Tarot by Observation’ shows you the thinking behind the whole spread. At the beginning of that is the thinking – the cards that make the main theme, their contrasts and similarities.
      I have expanded ‘Learn Tarot by Pictures’ to include all six two-card combinations, which does dilute the message of learning by observation. Perhaps there should be a separation there. But as it is, that added so much more work, I am loath to wade in and separate out the ‘main theme’ and the ‘rest of the cards.’ I may think of a way though.
      Well, when I look at Olympic ice skaters, it looks so easy, too. Anyone who is expert at something will give observers that same feeling you have about it looking simple, but I couldn’t do it.
      So reading from the bottom category up would give you a leg up. Next would be the sentences. Having read the other information, you will now see how the sentences are put together – you will get the picture. Your subconscious will be activated to absorb the Tarot Verbatim process.
      Read that article at the top of the site here. It explains how Tarot gives you access to your subconscious.
      If you keep at it, there comes a flash point – several at different levels, actually – where you ‘get it.’ That’s a thrill, if you’re into this sort of thing.
      ‘Guidance’ is just a pithy overview or summary that someone who isn’t interested in the nuts and bolts can read, then go to pick out sentences for the ‘daily fortune,’ and be done with it.
      This site is meant to accommodate both camps. I think I succeed at that.
      In classes, you would get the basics, the ‘easy cards’ first. I started discovering Tarot’s phrases for Tarot around 1980, so have lots of exposure to it.

  2. Anon

    I am continuously amazed at how right on your daily readings are. I am in the midst of trying to decide whether or not to trust a “bad boy” I am seeing. It’s all so very confusing. I think I know the answer, but he is so exciting and charming…

    • The answer is usually ‘Boy toy.’ The quality of the relationship is better better because he isn’t defending himself from a ‘relationship,’ but doing the one thing male mammals do best: chasing a cow who isn’t interested yet.

  3. Liz

    “You know ‘something’s up’ when no one talks to you.” I wonder what it could be.

    • They know something that involves you, and are not telling you. People are like that. If a coworker is stealing or destroying equipment, the others just look at you funny and don’t tell you.

  4. Sushi

    Ugh, not what I wanted to see today. =( Have a “friend” that is not returning my calls and she has some stuff of mine that I guess she figures is hers now. Still trying to figure out how to get it back from her.

    • A very brief reading might tell you. If you ask to borrow one or more, psychologically that would be her ‘owning’ it, and when she lends it to you of course you are going to forget to return it. This works more often than you know.

  5. Jaclyn

    We are preventing risks and hazards, and warning people about harm they are doing to themselves . . . yes we are. Thanks to you we saved my boss a BIG bunch of trouble . .. Thanks Emily . . .

    • Some of the sentences I removed (60 is just too many)were about that. Telling them, talking to them, etc., if I recall. I’m glad the boss listened to you.

      Thank you very much for tell about it here.
