Tarot Readings for You for November 28, 2013 Thursday©

Nov 27, 2013 by

Guidance     How a person sees things depends on what he is attached to. The more a person is not attached, the more clearly he sees things as they are. We observe this in others easily as we deny it in ourselves. It’s the tribal ‘us’ and ‘them’ instinct that makes us so rich in assumptions. The most accurate witness is the one who isn’t part of the story, a bystander. The first step to freeing yourself from an undesirable trait is comfortable acceptance that, yes, it is yours. When you own it, you can do something with it.


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.


Page of Pentacles

Knight of Cups – Devil – Fool




Our spread features contrasts – cards meaning opposite things.

Knight of Cups and Devil Knight of Cups is the good guy and devil is the bad guy. Knight of Cups is polite and helpful; Devil is rude and nasty. Knight of Cups is affectionate; Devil is hateful.

Knight of Cups and Fool Knight of Cups accepts suggestions; Fool disregards them.

Devil and Fool Devil is attached, even addicted; Fool is entirely free. Devil is guilty or wrong; Fool is an innocent naif.

Fool and Page of Pentacles Fool is subconscious; Page of Pentacles is conscious thought. Fool is ‘not present’ or absent, and does not care or is oblivious; Page of Pentacles is identity, is the one who (whatever), is there in person. Fool is devil-may-care; Page of Pentacles is self-conscious.

Devil and Page of Pentacles Devil has a bad attitude and Page of Pentacles a good one. Devil is ill-intentioned, ugly and rude; Page of Pentacles is the young presentable fellow who is politely fitting in to the social scene.

Knight of Cups and Page of Pentacles however, are the same type of person: young polite socially acceptable fellows.

Notice we have made stories without any action card today.





Knight of Cups The agreeable, affectionate young man who takes initiative to put you at ease and make peace is the Boyfriend card in Rider Waite Tarot Verbatim. His horse isn’t like those others: Its mane is artfully coiffed, its head is down, it is relaxed, a back and a front leg are raised which horses do when they are just standing around, and it is gray and gentle and cute. The knight wears Mercury’s wings on his helmet (the messenger) and leans back in the saddle offering you a drink. The sky is pale blue, the world is pastel.


Devil What you see is mostly what you get with this Rider Waite Tarot card. Its main message is that vices that bind you to the nether domain (represented by the loose chains around the necks of the human subjects) are removable by you, that if you are living in some bad scene, you can get yourself out of it. But its meanings in a reading are things like rude, nasty, dirty, lout, lust, hate/hateful, fault, dark side, addiction, illness or disease, brutality, abusive. It means obligation and attachment as well. It simply means physical once in a while.


Fool is entirely free, lighthearted, optimistic, naïve and young. While the illustration shows a silly young dude prancing off with no provisions running away from home with his little equally silly dog, the deeper meaning of the card is that a spiritually advanced person disregards sensible self-interest and lives in faith out of the spiritual realm. What Fool is free of is the whole physical system, the world. Which echoes the concept behind the last Major Arcanae, World. (Fool is, of course, the first Major Arcanae, with zero as the number.) But he is often positioned as the very last card too.


Page of Pentacles refers to the self, to thinking about and having a concept or opinion consciously. This is a real-world person who is young and learning, so it sometimes stands for a theory or working hypothesis. Reminds you of Knight of Pentacles, who also contemplates the pentacle; but Knight is a bit of a brute and ‘has one thing on his mind’ whereas Page is young and open-minded.

  1. I just put up tomorrow’s blog. We are off the interesting lofty messages and into one about unstable romantic situations. Very focused, so it must be talking to someone.
    In that fairly ho-hum presentation, I let loose with the full Monty on Two of Cups. Some of you won’t want to miss that. Tarot Verbatim sees that card in a very different way.

  2. Lori

    Happy thanksgiving Emily!

    • Thank you, Lori.
      I did. I went to a church feed. Yum. Everything was perfect. Just the right amount too.
      To you as well. You had a similar experience, right: good food, the company of agreeable people?

  3. Anna

    Strange set of cards for Thanksgiving

    • Tuesday, I think was ‘Be grateful for bullies and adversities.’
      Tarot isn’t cognizant of holidays.
      But I used to call Thanksgiving Family Hate Day because of all the feuds and disagreements people would call me about re that day.
      I had the same thought as I typed this. This was a complex one to read.
