Tarot Readings for You for December 5, 2013 Thursday©

Dec 4, 2013 by

Guidance     Here we are doing what is right and proper, acting politely most of the time, and we fear upheaval.  It’s risky to be the fellow who offers to make things right.  It’s proper for a boyfriend to make that first affectionate move, but it is still scary. Maybe I’m being good because I am afraid of karma, of my chickens coming home to roost.  I think I will just accept, right now, that bad things can happen to good people but are somewhat less likely to, and save myself the grief.


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.

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.


Two of Pentacles

Justice – Knight of Cups – Nine of Swords




Two of our Tarot panelists are normal and proper ( Justice and Knight of Cups) and two are worried and upset ( Nine of Swords and Two of Pentacles). Both Justice and Two of Pentacles involve balance, but in very different ways, so it doesn’t count. At a glace, this spread suggests either worry about nothing, or making something right that upsets someone.

Justice and Knight of Cups are normal and proper. Justice means ‘right,’ of course; Knight of Cups is the friendly person who makes the first move, introduces himself (and others), cooperates and helps, is a friend and a good guy. Together, Justice and Knight of Cups say: a nice person or man who does right, an offer or stipulation in court, offers to make it right.

Nine of Swords and Two of Pentacles Nine of Swords is worried; Two of Pentacles is upset. Nine of Swords is fear; Two of Pentacles is upheaval(s). Put them together, and they make phrases like: keep worrying about, worried and upset, afraid of being silly (Two of Pentacles, obviously from the picture, also means silly.)

These two cards in Tarot Verbatim™ get together easily about anything worrisome that recurs, anything you worry about over and over. You can see this easily: Nine of Swords is up in bed, head in hands, had a nightmare. Nine of Swords is that cold fear of an attack of nerves or panic; it is the jitters; it is a scary situation, or whatever you are nervous about or in fear of.

Two of Pentacles refers to a cycle, and to timing, so it gives rise to: recurring or ‘one after another,’ often, on-again off-again, repeated, every time, sometimes, keeps doing or being, routine, process, return, getting what’s coming to (any pronoun).

Justice and Two of Pentacles both involve balance. Justice ‘s balance is about the scales of justice, balancing for fairness, and being impartial. Two of Pentacles is about keeping your balance and balancing your situation, which is what the juggler in the picture does. These two Rider Waite cards together, in Tarot Verbatim™ are about legal proceedings, keeping a tipsy situation going as it should, things can go either way in court, and even one legal thing after another.

Justice and Knight of Cups is a committed boyfriend, and is the proper polite young man. Justice means should, proper, court, what one deserves, and ‘legal,’ which suggests ‘making it legal’ in romance subjects. Knight of Cups is making the first move, being affectionate, cooperating, being a good guy.




Justice and Knight of Cups Nice person or man who does right, an offer or stipulation in court, offers to make it right. A committed boyfriend, the proper polite young man.

Justice and Nine of Swords Afraid I will get what I deserve, scared straight, worry about court proceedings, nervous about doing the right thing, a straight person’s nightmares, fear for (my/his) sanity.

Justice and Two of Pentacles Keep doing right, one lawsuit after another, legal proceedings, straightening out an unstable situation.

Worries about being a good person. A nice but nervous young man. Helping someone with their grief or with what they fear. Being a good person out of fear.

Knight of Cups and Two of Pentacles A nice guy but not always. A nice but crazy guy. Keeps being friendly. Makes one offer after another.

Nine of Swords and Two of Pentacles Keep worrying about, worried and upset, afraid of being silly.




Justice     Scales of justice in one hand, sword of execution in the other. This is one of the obvious cards in Rider Waite. Besides meaning anything referring to the justice industry or regulation industry, Justice often calls up words like should or ought, right, proper, what (you) deserve.


Knight of Cups Sweet-natured good guy, nice young man. Accepting, suggesting, making the first move, being the one who makes peace, and most of all that sweet guy who is in love or who is the boyfriend. Illustration on this knight is very different from all the others. This one is not asserting and not in any hurry or under any pressure; he is calm, is offering a cup in friendship. This one’s horse is a horsey.


Nine of Swords Up nights crying, can’t sleep or insomnia, nightmare(s), fear and worry, grief, all upset sweating it out, having the jitters, a panic attack, gets on your nerves, scary, it gets to (me). This is another easy-to-read Rider Waite Tarot card: You see someone sitting bolt upright in bed, head in his or her hands.


Two of Pentacles His costume is silly as he juggles plates or balls that are connected with the sign in math that means ‘continuing’ or ‘repeating.’ Ships toss crazily in the background. Two of Pentacles’ most common meanings are continuing, keeping up something, ongoing. Next is unstable and silly. Then the movements. Notice all the movements: wobbling (his legs), up and down, back and forth, round and round – and the movements are in rhythm (another meaning).

Two of Pentacles also is a cycle, and the following words belong to it: sometimes, recurring, keeps (doing, being, etc.), every time, over and over, often, on-again off-again, repeatedly or repeats. Routine, process, return, and ‘getting it back,’ as in karma also belong to Two of Pentacles.

    OMG, so right on – I over-reacted to something and he unfriended me on Facebook and essentially dropped me. He is working doubles (has a new job and still working old ones) and won’t have a day off for 1-1/2 weeks. I can’t call or bother him…it’s killing me.

    • Can you write him a letter, maybe a card? Maybe send a plant (bromeliads are foolproof, and you can tell him it will bloom again, after it rests from its current bloom, by putting a cut apple in a plastic bag and closing it, for a few days. Obviously, the bloom has to develop, but that will trigger a rebloom. They don’t bloom again, without something like this, usually. Telling him this gives an opening to say something without being awkward.)

      • Anon

        I think he thinks I’m crazy… 🙁

        • Then the card or the thingie on the plant gift should announce “I am not crazy! and add whatever is specific to the situation. (I have some hope for this situation.)

  2. Anna

    Yep, this guy I know is a nightmare. Why does he keep contacting me? What did I do to get this bad karma?

    • People who act like this are bloodsuckers. You have lovely blood. He wants some. It’s not bad karma, it’s being delicious. Comes with the territory.
