Tarot Readings for You for December 23, 2013 Monday©
Guidance Tensions between a couple compare to tensions between families. It’s always two sides, you know … The two sides expand to the neighborhood and then to the general situation. Tarot presents the idea that two factions are a repeating pattern greater than the sum of its parts, that individuals, couples, neighbors and states engage one another in conflict because of instinctual taste for the conflict more than for a cause or any real reason.

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.
Nine of Wands
Ten of Cups – Four of Wands – Eight of Wands
Ten of Cups and Four of Wands Here are the two ‘happy marriage’ cards waltzing in together. Our theme. Their meanings overlap a lot. Ten of Cups means marriage, happy marriage, everybody, family, neighborhood, house, happy couple, happy people, well-adjusted ‘good’ people, group, prosperity, celebration, reunion, and happy. Four of Wands also means wedding, neighborhood of good (upstanding) people, wedding, native country, members, faction, community (including in the political sense), company, organization, headquarters, and agency (any level). Most of the time, as you can see, these two cards mean pretty much the same thing: You look for one each in two sentences to establish a ‘unity’ theme of one sort or another.
But put them side by side, and they do come up with some phrases, like an organization that is ‘one big happy family.’
Eight of Wands and Nine of Wands cancel that unity theme. Nine of Wands is all kinds of defensiveness, since it depicts a border guard who dreads another attack, you know? Here’s what it says today: grievance, have to live up to it uneasy, distrust, pressure, facing difficulty, having to live up to, nervous, get on nerves, guarding, dreading, worry, defensive, under threat, uncomfortable, tension.
Eight of Wands just adds to things. Its meanings don’t correlate with the illustration much. Generally, it indicates a plural for a nearby card – ‘those things’ – means ‘increasingly’ and ‘more and more’ and ‘ier.’ It is also communication, written, oral or whatever: talk, new. It is also a list.
Put them together and a bad thing is getting worse.

Ten of Cups Happily ever after in suburbia with a boy and a girl, a rainbow over the ranch house, a couple hugs while the kids prance. This is the good upstanding life in the good neighborhood as one of the good people. It is any group of people, in a good context. Let’s apply that generality, shall we? This meaning expands to include any circle (as in circle of friends) and people who have anything in common (parties, factions, camps – the choir, the crowd at the pool hall, the coworkers you asked about, etc.) – family, people, the good people, marriage, happy marriage, married with children, happiness, togetherness (one big happy family). The meaning expands to neighbors and community, but Four of Wands is usually the spokesperson for city, state, county, nation, national groups and so on. Ten of Cups is a house or home, too – usually in a respectable area.
Four of Wands A big wedding of the leading families is a community event, and means a formal marriage. Put Justice with it, and it’s a ‘paper marriage.’ Four of Wands means these other things in a formal way too: community (any level including international, as in races or religions), country, native country – company, agency, organization, headquarters, corporate interests. It is a public building, often a court house (especially with Justice), and it can also be a house.
Eight of Wands Usually a simple Rider Waite Tarot citizen meaning either communicating – talk, messages, writing – or quickly – or increasingly, more and more. It can also mean accumulatively, as when one after another goes into the stack, bin, or whatever. Its illustration doesn’t relate to its meaning as closely as most of the other Rider Waite Tarot cards. Pictured are sprouting limbs flying one above another in the air, looking sort of like lines on a page. It stands for texting, by the way, as well as talking.
Nine of Wands guards the perimeter, head bandaged from the last sortie, feeling uneasy. ‘Being on your guard’ and ‘guarded’ are words that reflect how uncomfortable you feel in a Nine of Wands situation. You feel tense, anxious, fearful, dread, defensive. Nine of Wands also, of course, stands for a security guard, or guarding anything, or even a dog who is a guard.
