Tarot Readings for You for December 4, 2013 Wednesday©

Dec 3, 2013 by

Guidance     Suggests that everything is always open to question; that a life philosophy of doubt regarding dogma in spirituality is appropriate. It says the street signs are hidden. It boils down to an odd way of saying ‘Keep an open mind.’ This concept is extended to what price to pay for physical items and to skepticism regarding what people say or claim. It leaves you with a head full of question marks and claims that is what should be there.


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).

Feel awkward that I don’t have quite enough money to cover it.


I should get paid but maybe will take less.


We should be able to get it for less: Ask.

That’s not quite the official story but I suspect I’m right.


What if we are right and they have withheld what’s correct?


Somebody’s official story is blarney; I withhold approval.


Are we supposed to be quiet when they give us that cleaned-up version?


Tarot Reading:s Is this the Right Road? (Page of Cups and Ace of Pentacles)

Where is the road? – The signs are hidden.


Is that the right road or should we adhere/stick to the usual way?


Don’t tell (them) the correct road when (they) ask.



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.


Ace of Pentacles

Four of Pentacles – Page of Cups – Hierophant





Both Hierophant and Ace of Pentacles mean right and correct. Hierophant is the official story, the cleaned up version for the public, the way we present ourselves to our public. Face. In the same way, it also represents the way pubic entities present themselves to us, the public. “Hypocrisy is the homage vice renders to virtue,” say some wise person.

Ace of Pentacles means ‘The Right Path’ in the spiritual sense and also the right road and the right price in the practical sense. This is not one of those flexible cards; it an an anchor card.

Page of Cups, on the other hand, questions all that ‘right’ stuff. He questions everything. He represents the ‘Is that a silly idea, or what?’ feeling. He feels silly, himself. He is in a ‘duh’ groove.

Four of Pentacles is the flexible one of today’s Rider Waite Tarot citizens. Its meanings embrace these phrases: less, not up to par, reduce, keep quiet, won’t admit, not very or not quite, withheld or withhold, clings to belief, hidden, adhere or stick to, and don’t tell. He stands for deeply held but private feelings.

Four of Pentacles and Page of Cups question deeply held beliefs. They say ‘Are we to keep quiet’ about something. See some others at the end of this when all the combinations and some key phrases are listed.

Page of Cups and Hierophant are opposites. Page of Cups is the misfit, the maverick, the fellow with the lampshade on his head at the party. Hierophant is the conformist, the buttoned-up proper person.

With two of our cards meaning correctness in Tarot Verbatim™, one meaning doubt, , and one meaning internal private feelings , our sentences are limited to attitudes and feelings about what is proper or acceptable. Page of Cups underlines this with its suggestion to put our sentence in question form.


OKAY. Here are the key phrases for our six combinations of Rider Waite Tarot cards:


Four of Pentacles and Page of Cups Question deeply held beliefs. ‘Are we to keep quiet?’ Don’t tell them when they ask. Won’t admit my doubts. How can that not be enough? Feel awkward that I don’t have enough (money). How can that not be enough?

Four of Pentacles and Hierophant Not quite proper. Not quite the official story. Not quite the moral thing. Cling to belief in the church. Not very religious. The signs are hidden. Not quite up to par. Don’t tell (them) the correct.

Four of Pentacles and Ace of Pentacles Not quite right. Withheld what is correct. Reduce the payments. Don’t have the money. Pay for what is inferior. Pay for it with that little money. Money you don’t have. Get it for less.

Page of Cups and Hierophant Is that proper? Question the official story. Official story is blarney. Doubts about being right. ‘Is that correct?’ Maybe it’s up to par. Maybe it’s okay. Is that respectable? Is being moderately …? The maverick and the conformist. ‘Do I pass? – Do I fit in?’

I suspect I’m right. Is this the right road? Ask what road, ask the way to. Why pay? Ask about the price. Ridiculous price.

Proper and right. Pay retail. Correct price. Moderately successful. Should pay. Moderately successful. Enough money to cover it. Give the church money.




Four of Pentacles depicts a fellow holding onto his money. He sits in the street outside of town clutching his cash, hugging himself. He has some secret, the picture suggests. That is where the meanings about keeping quiet and not telling or not talking come from. The picture suggests stinginess, withholding. Four of Pentacles’ most frequent application is ‘not enough,’ in the senses of being inferior, being short of, less than, not quite, budget. Four of Pentacles also, since he is hugging himself and is all alone, means deeply held beliefs, something precious that one clings to, and ‘deep down inside,’ which expands to include internal organs in questions that involve that. P. S. He can be sulking, too!


Page of Cups The silly fellow with a fish in a cup, who is wearing a getup, could be a court jester. He stands for questions and doubts and feeling awkward and being, yes, a fool. He stands for “I don’t know.” The misfit. This is you when you go to a new place and everyone else is dressed differently from you. This is being the idiot.


Hierophant The official story or official reality. Also physical reality, ‘mundane,’ what we call ‘the real world,’ and the label or name … the papers or documents, or certificate. ‘Should’ and ‘supposed to’ are frequent phrases for Hierophant – what you are supposed to do and be and believe to fit in, to conform. Hierophant is being up to par: the passing grade, the middle class. Being a moral good respectable citizen.

The illustration here is the pope in a ceremony for the public. Hierophant contrasts the official public story or teachings with whatever the theologians, the people in the know, believe.


Ace of Pentacles also means ‘right.’ It is about a road and also the spiritual path. It is about money paid or received. Its illustration shows the Right Hand Path (metaphysics) or the Straight and Narrow Road (Christianity) or the Middle Way (Buddhism). Probably every religion uses this wording in some way. It shows a hand with money in it above the path: success is the result of being spiritual or observant.

    Is this the right road? Or am I doing the right thing? Will this change get me somewhere different? These questions have been on my mind.
