Tarot Readings for You for October 3, 2013 Thursday(c)

Oct 2, 2013 by

Guidance    is about recognizing we are in a bad situation and getting out of it as quickly as we can one way or the other, which includes changing the mind along with the direction. It’s all about turnaround, and how sometimes it takes a mistake or a bad scene to make us realize we are heading in the wrong direction.  When our recipe fails each time, we have to think.  She sees her man again making the same wreck of things and coming back.

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.


Knight of Swords

Two of Pentacles – Queen of Cups – Moon




Here we have the ‘worst card in the deck,’ and not one but two cards that mean ‘to change back and forth; and the remaining card is the sweet gal. Hmmm.


Moon stands out like a cuss word. ‘Worst card in the deck’ is its rep. It shows ‘The Left-hand Path.’ It means ‘wrong’ and ‘evil,’ and shows the road to hell. Despair, depression, hopeless …. Yes, it has some desirable meanings – The Muse type things – but mostly it stands out like the cuss word in a news report. Often it’s about mental or physical disease; it can indicate cancers. It will stand in for any disaster, and calls up the word ‘horrible’ too. Rot, stench, filth, decay, malignancy, hate, psychopathy, murder and other hate crimes.


Then you notice two of the other cards both mean ‘back and forth.’ *Two of Pentacles also means quite a few other things: continuing; up and down; round and round; on and on; either/or, neither/nor; queasy and dizzy; unstable and undecided; can go either way; silliness; upheaval (the ships tossed behind him); performance (the juggler); cycles; repetitive movement, and things like fumbling around. *Knight of Swords is in hot pursuit in the picture. He means to be in a hurry, a rush, suddenly, to speed, to turn around and go back, and also to flee (depending on other cards that aspect Knight of Swords). He can produce the phrase ‘gets back to you’ in a social transaction. He is advice to ‘get out of there’ at times.


The remaining card we have to make our sentences with is Queen of Cups, The Nice Girl. Her main meanings are: to understand, to opine, to think, to dream, to contemplate something; she figures out; sweet kind loyal woman who understands her man, has faith in him. Queen of Cups indicates his woman is loyal to him, and is advice to think about (whatever).


Sometimes (Two of Pentacles) things have to get really, really nasty (Moon) before we understand what is going on (Queen of Cups) and get out of there (Knight of Swords).


In relationship questions, Queen of Cups is the woman who loves, and Knight of Swords is the guy who leaves or comes back … or comes and goes.


A bad dream comes back with Moon and Knight of Swords. Or you get over a serious difficulty or ailment quickly. Or someone’s in a rush on the road to hell. See how the literal meanings work together?





Two of Pentacles reminds me of telling my little brother “Light somewhere” because he was always flying around, fidgeting. Exaggerated waves tossing ships, behind the juggler, mean continuing motion that is non-directional, like a wheel’s. The math sign for repeating numbers (also called the eternity sign) connects the plates he juggles, and means ‘on and on.’ Other Two of Pentacles applications are: either/or, neither/nor; queasy and dizzy; unstable and undecided; can go either way; silliness; upheaval. Two of Pentacles often supplies ‘continuing’ or ‘continues.’


Queen of Cups is the sweet-kind-loyal-understanding-‘faith in her man’ lady we all know – a decent and oft devout person. Queen of Cups means: to think, to figure out, to dream. She is Eric Hoffer’s ‘true believer.’ She contemplates an artifact while water floods around her, water that signifies being emotional (as in ‘water in your chart’ in astrology).



Moon has a bad reputation in Tarot Land.  It translates ‘horrible’ frequently. It signifies ‘The Left-Hand Path’ in occult parlance; and that is what the illustration shows.  That means ‘evil’ or ‘the road to hell’ to us civilians.  The words it calls up are most often:  wrong, mistake, bad, worst, nightmare, fear, illness, insanity, mortality, malignant, hate, hopeless. The (purple) lobster is going on a land journey; the dog and coyote (natural enemies) are palling together; the two towers mean something evil; and there’s the full and new moon as well.



Knight of Swords rushes in full speed ahead and is engaged in pursuit.  That is the full formal meaning.  But in real life it also means to flee (as in ‘get out of Dodge’) and to switch back and forth, and to change direction, or change (anything).  You find Knight of Swords saying ‘suddenly’ or ‘immediately,’ and indicating something is a rush, too. Whatever meaning applies, it will always be sudden or in a hurry.  His illustration shows the fully armed knight flying on his horse with his sword extended and a predator’s intensity of expression on his face and in his body language.
