Tarot Readings for You for November 25, 2013 Monday©

Nov 24, 2013 by

Guidance     Ever notice how, when we are very intensely interested in something, we also are intense when we change our minds about it? Like the energy going in has to equal the energy coming out? A hot love affair often ends explosively, not that it has to. Guys who have a bad temper are the very ones to get really stuck on dames, it seems. And dainty women attract the hotheads. Our story today is about these impasses. Impasses in business or social life happen when I know something that is a deal-breaker, but I am not ever saying so.


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.


Ten of Wands

Tower – High Priestess – Knight of Pentacles





The core meanings of each of these cards tell several similar stories.


Tower and Ten of Wands Our spread begins with breaking up, quitting, or blowing up (Tower) and ends with dragging on forever, slow going, and ‘difficult’ (Ten of Wands).

High Priestess and Knight of Pentacles In the middle, we have two cards that both mean to know deeply (in two different ways). High Priestess knows … knows everything. She is the expert. She is the metaphysician. She is a behind-the scenes influence. Knight of Pentacles has one thing on his mind, one aim or ambition, has a priority, is certain of this one idea, and possibly obsessed with it. They are opposite type: She, the quiet passive lady; he, macho activist.

When you put these two cards together, the phrases they make are: I aim to know all about, I know for sure, I know who is behind, I am looking at it at not doing anything about it, when she keeps to herself, all he can think of us, he is so hot and she is so cool, he thinks of her, he sees her as spiritual, and she is certain.

When you put Tower and Ten of Wands together, they say things like: hard to break up, eventually blow up, a long slow crash, things come to a head that were simmering, trying so hard to break up, a huge divide, a divorce drags on, finally has a temper fit, depressed about rejection.

The similar stories that the core meanings of each of these cards relate are: Breaking up (Tower ) with the lady or Other Woman (High Priestess ), he is obsessed (Knight of Pentacles ) for a long time, very deeply, and it’s difficult (Ten of Wands ).

Besides meaning ‘she who knows,’ High Priestess also means a woman alone, a woman who waits, a woman who is spiritual or metaphysical, an ultra-feminine, quiet, or even meek woman. It is also about knowing and not acting.

Tower and High Priestess say these things: I know something that is a deal breaker, expert on bankruptcy, suddenly I know, suddenly I know who’s behind (it), not doing anything about the crash, break up with her, ladies quietly reject, hits a woman, the lady wait for the divorce, she quits, rejects her because she is into spiritual life, divorced and alone, quiet gal blows up, she quits living alone.

Tower and Knight of Pentacles With Tower meaning things like breaking up, rejection, quitting, a deal-breaker, firing or getting fired, crash, hitting, suddenly, and with Knight of Pentacles meaning things like having something firmly in mind, knowing for sure, having one priority, sees, watches, being obsessed, aim or ambition, getting the point, the two of these Rider Waite Tarot cards mean things like: thinking of getting out or quitting, intend to fire (someone) knowing the crash, suddenly I know for sure, determined to break up, break the obsession, a rough guy hits, he aims to beat up, he ‘gets it’ when she has a fit over it.

We are left with those two cards that are about knowing (High Priestess and Knight of Pentacles) with Ten of Wands. Let’s introduce ourselves to Ten of Wands. It uses more meanings than meets the eye, all related to the illustration.

Here are some: It is moving slowly and surely with difficulty, making steady progress. It means a long time – like ‘it takes forever,’ which adds ‘always’ to its phrases. It could be dragging on. It could be depressed. It could mean ‘the extreme’ since he is taking it all in one load, and the ‘extreme’ concept brings in ‘always’ and ‘eventually.’ And it’s one of the cards that indicates continuing action or continuing to be.

Ten of Wands and High Priestess say she will always be there, (life) is difficult for her, she is too (whatever the next card is), she waits a long time, a long time before another woman, who has been behind (this) all this time, an expert for a long time, she has been here forever and is a fixture, hang in there and be very unobtrusive (quiet), keeping quiet indefinitely, know a lot about.

Ten of Wands and Knight of Pentacles say he is determined to eventually, always keep in mind, know that eventually, watch a long slow (whatever), try so hard on this one thing, all lhe can think of is that after all this time, the rough guy zeroes in on, he still thinks of all this time, he sees it’s too (whatever), a guy who is too (whatever), it’s all he thinks about but it’s so hard to, obsessed and depression.



Tower shows a building hit by lightning and people being ejected from it, afire. To reject, divorce or break up, to quit,  and to hit,  are its most common meanings, closely followed by explosive temper tantrums.


High Priestess actually stands for the feminine principle of receptivity, a technical term in metaphysical theory, so she is ultra-feminine. What she means in most spreads is the lady or the other woman, but she also indicates the spiritual plane, a spiritual adept, an expert or scholar, staying home or staying in one place, a woman who knows and keeps quiet – even a bookkeeper once in a while, since she is pictured with a book in her lap.


Knight of Pentacles has one thing on his mind, is focused or even obsessive. Today he is being very obsessive. He is the tough, rough, or macho guy. The picture shows a stereotype of that: the short dark fella who is very muscular and sure of himself, a strong man physically who is rigid mentally.


Ten of Wands Doing it all in one load, one trip, is a strain, but when you’re done, you’re done. That is Ten of Wands’ concept. He has a burden on his back, but his slow progress will get him there eventually. His meanings arise from this illustration, as they should in Tarot Verbatim’s niche of Rider Waite. Long, slow, difficult going. It can mean depression … the burden … too.

  1. Lori

    Seems like a cross between my ex, and my current crush. Think I need to keep to myself a bit and just let things shake out, all this obsessing or pouring of energy into is not helping expedite things at all, better to spend the energy elsewhere.

    • The next messages build on this. Worked a lot polishing them up; they are worth it.
      I think your assessment is accurate. Twenty years of this, I can tell you that generally when you withdraw from the vibe with a guy, it piques his interest.

      • Bunny

        I dont know, Emily. The more I withdraw from my hubby, the further away he gets. Kind of like he takes me for granted that I`ll always be here. I`ve waited so long for him to come to me that I don`t want him anymore. Thanks Emily, great reading today… tomorrows is a great one too

        • Oh how I appreciate your appreciation. I reached that ‘You’re the enemy’ crossroads with my husband … and was supporting him … and he finally turned into Prince Charming. He said ‘I don’t want to be the enemy.’
          No, it doesn’t happen every time. Could be ‘God is doing you a favor.’ That was the case with my first husband. I was happy for a year when he divorced me.

  2. Anna

    Oh-oh sounds like something bad is going to happen 🙁

    • This is a heads-up on the approach of something bad: how to prevent its landing. This feels more long term than our usual messages. I worked intensely, more time than usual, on this day’s messages.

      It’s not about doom; its like a bulletin with instructions.
