Tarot Readings for You for April 18, 2014 Friday©

Apr 17, 2014 by

Guidance      What type of person are you?   What categories do you fit and not fit into?   This determines your destiny in so many unspoken and unwritten ways, especially in the workplace.    Posture and dress and speech classify you and me as if there were a caste system in spite of our many ways of pussyfooting around it.    Even more than ability, talent, or intelligence, having the look and/or being the type opens doors of opportunity.    A person’s manner and manners attract or detract in ways that would be frowned upon as ‘discrimination’ in another setting.   Some professions less than others, it’s true, but even in those it pays to mind your appearance as much as your manners, and exhibit the customary behavior for the field.    Ahem, we call that conforming.

 

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).

Tarot Verbatim: Questioning Work (Eight of Pentacles and Seven of Pentacles)

I guess I’m proud to be working class.

He is the type who asks you one question after another.

Are my language skills up to snuff for this job?

Why should a young guy have just an ordinary job?

Can you do the same thing in the same way over and over – is that you?

He is the type to question the way things are usually done.

The work is so standardized; am I that type person?

Tarot Verbatim: The Right Look For The Job (Hierophant and Page of Wands and Eight of Pentacles)

I think I am a good fit for my job.

He says this is the work he usually does, and I think so.

So where is my respectable handsome young man who is employed?

If I were good-looking, would I be doing my usual job?

How come the average worker there is so clean-cut?

How can a guy so young and cute be a such a good worker?

Having the right look for this job seems to be enough.

Tarot Verbatim: Good Enough to Work Here (Hierophant and Eight of Pentacles)

I wonder if have the credentials to work there?

Can I claim I have a good recommendation at that place of employment?

I think you will fit right in with the look the other employees have.

Tarot Readings: I Keep Questioning Things (Eight of Pentacles and Seven of Pentacles)

I’m pretty sure I can say the same lines over and over.

This job involves saying things that are not quite factual.

Talking for a living is not quite the usual thing.

Can you say the prescribed lines for this job?

Tarot Readings: I Keep Questioning Things (Eight of Pentacles and Seven of Pentacles)

Have you ever heard an honest worker claim to be one?

I tell myself over and over I am not so sure this is correct.

Do you think you should keep saying that, even though it’s true?

I wonder why the average Joe, every time, says these things.

What if I suggested a job that is just average?

They say my employment is not quite respectable.

Why do we always use the same words to say that?

 

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. HERE ARE PHRASES FOR ALL SIX 2-CARD COMBINATIONSis a stream-of-consciousness bridge to your subconscious if you use it regularly – people report.

*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.

Seven of Pentacles

Hierophant – Page of Wands – Eight of Pentacles

 

LEARN TAROT BY OBSERVING

.            Hierophant and Page of Wands     are similar cards with different applications. Both mean being respectable, behaving well, conforming, fitting in, being accepted and acceptable, and having the right look. They are both about appearances more than actualities. Hierophant is more about the qualities, and Page of Wands is a person who has those characteristics or qualities. So Hierophant is respectability, and Page of Wands is respectable.

        Hierophant is about the face of things, having a straight face, having the right papers and so forth. Hierophant is about standards and strictures – conforming to them, complying with them, being okay. Hierophant very often simply says the ordinary, usual, average … the consensus more than what’s right. Hierophant is the official story, the things most people pretend to believe or think they believe. There’s an artificiality to Hierophant, a hypocrisy, sometimes. The root meaning of the card is the difference between the way it really is, and the way we act like it is – whether we are a person or a government or a workplace.

       Page of Wands      is a person who fits in, conforms, is acceptable and accepted, who wants to please and is someone everyone gets along with. The ‘conforming’ expands, in Page of Wands, to speech or talk (well-spoken), to dress (well-dressed or appropriately dressed), to physical appearance (handsome, young, good-looking, fit). But it also stands for those qualities or characteristics, so it can describe a female as well. Most often, it applies to a person in his or her twenties, starting out in life as an apprentice and wanting to fit in. (Of course, we all know elderly people who are youthful in their way of living.) Keep in mind, though, that Page of Wands often simply reads ‘he,’ and does not stand for a female when it is just referring to person like that.

  An aspect of Page of Wands we have not touched upon, because we are not using it today, is ‘standing up’ and ‘standing for’ and making a claim, giving your word. Popeye’s ‘I am who I am.’

             Hierophant and Eight of Pentacles       refer to a routine.  Hierophant describes a protocol, a ceremony, a ritual, and the proper way it’s done, or the way it’s usually done. Eight of Pentacles is doing the same operation over and over, exemplified by a carpenter making identical pieces.

      Eight of Pentacles is the job, work, workplace, work site, working class, worker, employment, and steadily doing the same thing. It often says ‘over and over’ and ‘keep doing,’ which means continuing to do something as well as ‘keeping at it.’ It refers to consistently being or doing – like loving you consistently rather than sporadically, like calling or showing up consistently – but of course the other card is necessary for this application. Look for ‘ing’ words (gerunds) for this. Soo now we know what all this from the other cards applies to: the job.

      Seven of Pentacles   The remaining Rider-Waite Tarot card asks a question, is not so sure about something, wonders and ponders, and translates ‘maybe.’ It can say ‘doubt,’ especially doubt about an outcome because the fellow leaning on the shovel is not sure his labor will pay off in produce: Cucumbers need a plant of the opposite gender in order to bear.

          Hierophant and Eight of Pentacles; also Page of Wands and Eight of Pentacles   Here is why our main theme is fitting in at work. Eight of Pentacles is work or job; both Hierophant and Page of Wands mean fitting in, conforming, being acceptable. Both Hierophant and Page of Wands are about ‘type of person,’ stereotypes, as well. So that is our theme today: who to be.

LEARN TAROT BY PICTURES

 

Hierophant means pope. There he is in a red robe, monks kneeling to his authority. Conformity galore. Here it will refer to fitting in and being the right type of person. Hierophant is about the surface appearance: the ritual, not its real meaning. This idea is illustrated by the pope doing a ritual with some monks or priests.

 

Page of Wands dresses the part and speaks well. He is all about image and fitting in and being acceptable, about being the type, and type-casting yourself. He is the good-looking respectable young man your mother wants/wanted you to marry. He can be vain and foppish in Tarot Verbatim™ as he is pictured in our Rider Waite deck here.

 

Eight of Pentacles is about repetitive action, doing something in the same way over and over, as the carpenter makes one identical tile after another here. Work, employment, the workplace, the job, being the worker or being working-class. Eight of Pentacles is also about being consistent, keeping at it, being steady.

 

Seven of Pentacles ponders and puzzles and questions. When you grow plants that have gender, they don’t bear fruit unless both genders are within some vicinity of one another. This is the questionable situation in the illustration.
