Tarot Readings for You for November 21, 2013 Thursday©

Nov 20, 2013 by

Guidance      A person whose inner conflicts are resolved is mature.   A spiritual person whose inner conflicts are resolved is spiritually mature, and therefore repels people and entities who are looking for a fight.  Maturity is a cloak of invisibility.  In social life, people are nice and polite to someone who looks as if he or she can easily handle a clash without any fuss but isn’t looking for one.   Muggers don’t select the martial artist to accost.  In spiritual life, a seasoned veteran is simply not the one to pick on either.   In romantic life, a mature person can mellow the younger soul so there’s hardly any quarreling.


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.

‘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.

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 Cups

Strength – Seven of Cups – World




The first three cards (Strength and Seven of Cups and World) refer to spirits and things spiritual. You could even say that

= + – that ability to handle anything keeps everything (everyone) out of your hair.

Strength is so spiritually adept and has such spiritual character the attacking lion ends up in her hands purring. Her hands hold his mouth shut, and he is liking it.

World repels the lion (predator) before it gets to her. World deflects; Strength handles. Both intimidate.

Seven of Cups is about out-of-control spirits on the loose creating havoc and chaos. It is about panic and brain fog, scattered thoughts, being in shock, confused and amazed. In this spread, the spirits are more literal, and are part of the message of maturity handling unstable situations.

Strength and Seven of Cups straightens out the mess. You see that, right?

World is master of both good and evil spirits and circumstances, and therefore goes unnoticed by predatory types.

Both Strength and World are superior females and adepts. Socially, Strength is the type of gal who sets things and people straight, can handle whatever comes up, and overcomes. World is in her own world, so superior she is dancing to rhythms of some other plane, not mindful of earth plane.

Knight of Cups is the card that does not fit in with the themes of other three, which I call being the spoiler card. Knight of Cups is the born salesman, the friendly fellow who gets people to agree, the sentimental boyfriend … the diplomat. With the two dominant women, Strength and World, the welcome mat is out for the sweet and pliant Knight.

Besides the spirits of chaos being on the loose – and of course growing out of that scene – Seven of Cups means a mess of any sort, including debris from, say, a storm. This contrasts with World, who has her own clear space around her, and with Strength, who straightens things out.

We also say that Strength has tamed Knight of Cups, that she gets the guy who loves her to do anything for her. Knight of Cups is a helper, so here he is helping her to overcome, too. The diplomatic Knight and the assertive Strength make a team as well.

When you add Seven of Cups, she can get the boy to do anything to be her boyfriend, and he is crazy about her, and he is the crazy boyfriend.




Strength handles and overcomes actual or potential opposition and/or attacks. Just by being who she is, she disarms opposition … makes the lion purr who wants to roar.  Concept is that she is so mature spiritually she handles the conflict on a higher plane and it does not get expressed on the physical.  The illustration shows the lion’s mouth being shut by her deft touch.  (This spiritual process leads to the World card.)


Seven of Cups is the chaos and miasma created by spirits from the astral (emotional plane), a lower plane, running loose in our real (physical) world. Someone is ‘a loose cannon.’ Things scattered about, or the mess after a storm’s destruction. Confusion, dementia, craziness, disordered thoughts of any kind. Seven of Cups is to lose control, which arises from the magician having lost control of his spirits in the Sorcerer’s Apprentice story, or the bad spirits getting loose in the Pandora’s Box story.


World achieves spiritual maturity and therefore repels troublemakers without doing anything but be himself or herself. (The figure is supposed to be androgynous (both genders) after the idea in metaphysics that superior people reach that state. Illustration shows the person inside a circle and all the strange beings outside the circle are looking some other way.


Knight of Cups emphasizes being agreeable and affectionate. He takes initiative in social exchanges of any nature. He agrees, he gets people to agree, he accepts and is accepted. He is the sweet natured lovable fellow on the young side who is our friend. Illustration is drawn with curved relaxed lines and is in pastels. The horse looks like a merry-go-round horsey, is standing still with one foot up in front and back. The Knight wears mercury’s wings on his helmet and extends the cup of friendship.
