Tarot Readings for You for November 19, 2013 Tuesday©

Nov 18, 2013 by

Guidance     DRIVE SAFELY TODAY!  KEEP TRACK OF ANYTHING YOU COULD LOSE, INCLUDING PETS!   We are helping – or being helped – in bad times, in times of distress, despair or need.   Going out on foot looking, going out on the road looking, going through a blighted neighborhood looking for out-of-control, messed up situations to help people in distress.   This process refers to spiritual life too, emphatically: “When we feel an emptiness and are seeking spiritually, we chase after a lot of junk.”  Sometimes it is ourselves we have to help in down times.


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 from the pictures of the four cards you see – 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.


Knight of Wands

Five of Pentacles – Hermit – Seven of Cups




Hermit and Knight of Wands are on the road. Hermit is on foot looking for people to help at night. Knight of Wands is speeding on the road in the daytime, and can be fleeing or pursuing. Hermit is a patient wise old man, celibate. Knight of Wands is a young impatient man who is pursuing.

Hermit and Knight of Wands together mean things like: out looking, running around looking, an old man driving around, a friend who comes in a hurry, fleeing from a friend, honest folks move out of an area, quickly brings clarity, quickly leave when I take a good look at, rushes over to calm us down, I was calm as I headed pell mell, your friend rapidly.

Hermit and Five of Pentacles: Hermit goes out to help;  Five of Pentacles is in dire need of help.  Hermit is the monk and Five of Pentacles is Dark Night of the Soul, a recognized phase of spiritual life, particularly for Roman Catholic mystics.  Incidentally, Hermit has a walking stick and Five of Pentacles has crutches.

Hermit and Seven of Cups are looking for what is lost … or are lost and looking. They are a confused old man, they are brain fog from being up all night, they are looking at the pieces, they are looking for the needle in the haystack, they are taking a good look at this mess, they are clarifying the confusion.

Five of Pentacles and Seven of Cups describe brain fog in different ways. Five of Pentacles is numb with despair, trudging through desperate times. Seven of Cups is shock and confusion as things go out of control. Five of Pentacles talks about poverty, poverty of the soul, lack and disability and sickness. Seven of Cups talks about insanity, delusions and hallucinations, and things falling apart. (You don’t like to see them in one another’s company.)

Five of Pentacles and Hermit and Seven of Cups are all night scenes. Sometimes that is meaningful, especially when both Hermit and Knight of Wands are on the road, and Seven of Cups means ‘going out of control.’

Seven of Cups and Knight of Wands is going out of control at high speed on the road. It is also making a mess by being in a hurry. Just as …

Five of Pentacles and Knight of Wands is losing something by being in a hurry.

So be careful today! Avoid brain fog! Remember, Hermit is clarity of mind, is understanding. So Five of Pentacles and Hermit is a lack of understanding and clarity. And Seven of Cups means befuddled and confused! Here’s the equation, okay?

+ = These could read “Looking for the needle in the haystack.”




Five of Pentacles shows a mother and son who are homeless and sick (Son is on crutches) in rags who are so benumbed that they are walking in a snowstorm past a cathedral where they could have food and shelter.  The despair depicted reflects a phase of spiritual maturity that recurs called ‘Dark Night of the Soul,’ which is a title of one of the Western mysticism books.

A common meaning for Five of Pentacles is ‘lack of’ or ‘shortage,’ including bookkeeping matters. It means being poor, being homeless (losing the house), the ghetto, being sick, being crippled or injured, desperation and despair, and of course losing it all. Sometimes it stands for self-pity regardless of circumstances (“Poor me.”)


Hermit depicts a monk who goes out at night with a lantern to find and help travelers in distress.  (In this spread, he is looking at them there by the church!) He is on the road at night.  This Rider Waite Tarot card also means understanding, learning, a friend, a friend comes to (you), a friend helps, and a counselor or medical healer.  It indicates that someone will come to you if that is the question.  In our spread today, he is looking for something.


Seven of Cups Well, here’s the messed up, scrambled, lost things (or people or animals).  Debris and detritus.  Out of control.  It describes the fix we are in when we bite off more than we can chew, when things go awry and we don’t know what we did to make that happen … like when we’re on the computer too long?

The illustration is based on the Pandora’s Box story or on the Sorcerer’s Apprentice story.  In both of these stories, bad spirits are released from confinement and things are in disarray.


Knight of Wands is getting out in a hurry, by the illustration.  His horse is disturbed,rearing, front feet up.  The Knight’s clothes indicate some speed, and his expression is animated, maybe even fearful. In use, he will show up for pursuing as well as fleeing, but Knight of Swords is more obviously the pursuer.

  1. Very good post. I’m dealing with many of these issues as well..

    • It’s fascinating that people who access posts that are even years old encounter relevant material to their own current life situations. You may tell me more in an email if you wish. The email is on Email readings.
      Thank You!

    My 17 year old kitty got sick and passed away last night. =(

    • Oh, I am sooo sorry. How Kitty fought to stay in the physical world, my cards say,but was not influenced or affected by death.
      My animals tend to live at least two lifetimes too, even a sparrow (18 months life expectancy in the wild, two breeding seasons)who live a happy healthy loving life for more than nine years.

    Drive safely indeed, I have had two friends whose cars were hit by falling tree branches big enough to do serious damage to their cars. One friend was driving at the time and it scared that crap out of her.

    • Yesterday Terry, who works for me, had a life-threatening vehicle experience, spinning for a quarter of a mile on a narrow ledge of an icy road, with the car hanging off a cliff as it spun all the way down. He was not driving. Said it felt like a carnival ride.

    Things have made a turn for the better this afternoon
