Tarot Readings for You for August 22, 2014 Friday(c)

Aug 21, 2014 by

Guidance   There comes a time – always, to all of us – that things all go sideways at the same time. The scene is changed by that invisible hand, and there is no right thing to do, no smart move. We are stuck in a vacuum waiting for a breeze. Paralysis, at times like this, is not only normal but fairly smart. You can have all the despair you want, and that’s okay, that’s normal. You are in a cocoon, and a major involuntary turning point is ahead – almost always a new and better life. This is one of those undertows that time does heal. Welcome to the clubhouse of survivors, and congratulations on your new colorful wings.

Are YOU here for the first time? Come in!

Such a lack of energy that I am just resting up.

There’s the energy phase, and then the downswing where you flat-out don’t care.

I struggle with depression, and don’t get up out of bed.

Mourning my loss of the past, I am just not up to doing things.

I tried really hard and failed, so I am not doing anything.

Still haunted by the past, and I am so against that.

What I am doing is taking time out to feel sorry for myself.

You feel like not doing anything when you feel sad.

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 three pictures in the Tarot Readings – the pictures above here.  It explains how these three cards get together in your mind to make the messages. HERE ARE PHRASES FOR ALL THREE 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 three 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.

Five of Wands – Five of Cups – Four of Swords

LEARN TAROT BY OBSERVING

.

……………….…………………… The energy of Five of Wands is counterbalanced by its spread-mates here, as Five of Cups is losing and mourning, and Four of Swords is refraining from the very action and involvement that Five of Wands represents. This smells like a stalemate or a standoff, doesn’t it?

………………………..    Five of Wands shows five fellows whacking at one another with boards. They could be playing a sport or fighting, they could be violent, and they certainly are expending energy, trying hard, and competing with one another. Five of Wands is definitely an effort, and it can mean hard work but that isn’t its main trunk. Today this potentially violent card is overwhelmed by ennui, overtaken by the blues and by rank indifference or disinclination.

………………………..     Five of Cups  is spilled wine, so it represents regretting something that cannot be undone. The black-robed figure, head bent, represents mourning, heartsickness, melancholy, loss and downtime. You don’t find this card for insincere displays of emotion: It is very real hurt. I wish to God I had or hadn’t: Five of Cups is haunted by the past that cannot be fixed. Five of Cups, like Four of Swords, is sidelined, experiencing ennui or lassitude, a paralysis of the will, and life being drained out of you. Watch for it to mean a loss of body fluid in any way, including internal bleeding and glandular secretions in medical questions.

……………………….. Four of Swords   shows a knight candidate meditating on his life purpose, as part of the knighthood ritual. He will report his vision to the bishop, who will decide whether he is worthy of knighthood. A person lying in the death position on a coffin naturally has meanings like being sidelined, sleeping or resting up, not participating, being indifferent, minding his own business, not doing something – or not doing anything. But Four of Swords does not introduce death; it is merely a support card for it – unless the question is pointedly about death. It also goes into being a couch potato, just lying around, laziness, not responding. Medically, it can mean the patient is unresponsive, coma, bedridden, and being under anesthesia. Of course, this is the main Rider Waite Tarot card for meditating – especially meditating on life purpose – and anything to do with it.

………..……….……….     Five of Wands and Four of Swords both involve activity … doing something. Five of Wands specifically is very active, and is doing, whereas Four of Swords specifically is not at all active and is doing nothing.

Better to have battled and lost than never to have battled at all, we say. Today we have snapshots of people who are sidelined, mostly by their feelings and their reaction to having tried and failed, having wasted effort, having lost a fight. People who are on the bench or who are between innings. Mourning, regretting and repenting happen. We also have snapshots of people who are struggling with something difficult. This leads up to “ Take time out from active life when you feel awful.” The underlying message is to give ourselves permission to rest up from down-times, and from the drain of emotional traumas.
