Tarot Readings for November 20, 2014 Thursday©

Nov 19, 2014 by

GUIDANCE      Here’s the point today:  Just because you conform, just because you make sure you look good, speak well, keep your reputation and your vocabulary up, and so on … doesn’t mean you can’t be a good and decent person too.  In other words, some people who keep a clean image are also clean underneath. Now that’s a novel thought, isn’t it? You could say cynicism is believing very little that’s projected, and naïveté is believing most of it. I am picturing a midpoint somewhere there, aren’t you?

.

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 three 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).

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 COMBINATIONS is 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.

LEARN TAROT BY OBSERVING

.

……………….……………………          Well, here’s a challenge for us readers: Each and every one of these three Tarot cards is about image and identity; and that is the primary meaning of each, too. Hmm, what do ya suppose our topic is, then?

………..…………..     Page of Wands and Page of PentaclesPage of Wands and Page of Pentacles are very close in meanings. As stereotypes, they are young men studying up to fit into their society, looking good to secure a place and ‘move on up.’ This meaning attaches to Pages because a Page in olden times was a young noble who went to another noble’s dwelling to learn the knighthood trade, so they were apprentices who were anxious to look good and pass muster so they too could own the estate and serve the king. Rider Waite is influenced by Europe in the Middle Ages, its concepts and customs.

..     Page of Wands emphasizes dressing well, speaking well, and being good-looking; Page of Pentacles emphasizes being a student, ‘who I am’ or identity, examining and thinking about things, having an opinion, feelings about some particular thing, and focusing on (whatever). Watch for this card in Tarot Verbatim™ to translate ‘me’ and ‘I’ as well as ‘he,’ and to be introspective.

………………………..                    Hierophant is about ‘face.’ Hierophant is the official, surface, appearance and story. Hierophant is what everybody is supposed to believe (the news that’s fit to print, the teachings churches give to parishioners as distinguished from what insiders believe, and, yes, the image we maintain for our public). Hierophant is conformity, and often translates ‘should’ and ‘ought.’ Hierophant can be a hypocrite, of course.

………..…………..               Page of Wands and Page of Pentacles     Page of Wands and Page of Pentacles overlap in many of their meanings. Page of Pentacles has a little more emphasis on the ‘who I am,’ the introspective self-examination, as well as on the thinking and feeling aspects. Page of Wands is more projecting an image, being good-looking and well-spoken and well-dressed. When you put them together, sometimes they translate with the same words, and your sentences don’t say it twice because it sounds stupid. ‘Inspecting my image in a mirror’ is an example of the subtlety of their overlaps.

..     Since Page of Pentacles is the student who is paying attention (one of its basic meanings), and since Page of Wands is one’s public image, you see a person inspecting his public image.

..     Since Page of Pentacles is, again, ‘he’, and since Page of Wands is the person with a good image and a person who is speaking, you read ‘He has a good voice.’ In the same way, you get ‘Paying attention to what is said’ and ‘I am projecting an image.’

For more information on the subtlety, go to HERE ARE PHRASES FOR ALL THREE 2-CARD COMBINATIONSand decode the entries for ‘Page of Wands and Page of Pentacles’ there.

………..…………...           Page of Wands and Hierophant      Page of Wands and Hierophant show a fellow who is conforming … conforming. Page of Wands is projecting an image, and Hierophant means projecting an image. Page of Wands is being a type, being any ‘certain type of person.’ The type would be named by surrounding cards. But here the two say ‘Mr. Right,’ and ‘He is my type,’ and ‘a normal guy.’ So he is a good person and moral too – because Hierophant is moral, and Page of Wands is ‘that type of person.’

..     Page of Wands has a look, and Hierophant means should, ought, and right – so ‘He has the right look.’ Hierophant is conventional, and Page of Wands is handsome, so he is handsome in a conventional way.

..          Page of Wands is speaking, and therefore also being told (because the action in Tarot goes both ways, always, when you apply the cards to different inquiries), and Hierophant is church, so ‘what is said in church’ as well as ‘Listen in church.’ Hierophant represents any religious system, by the way: You just apply it to the situation you are inquiring about.

..         Page of Wands and Hierophant suggest a person who is likable believes what is acceptable to everybody (Hierophant: conventional surface beliefs).

..      Hierophant means ‘official’ and Page of Wands is speaking, or words, so ‘the official word on the subject.’

..      Page of Wands is handsome and is projecting an image, so ‘vain’ is one of his meanings. Hierophant means ‘normal.’ So it’s normal to be vain about your looks.

……………………      Page of Pentacles and Hierophant     Page of Pentacles and Hierophant combine ‘who I am’ with ‘should.’ So I am who I should be; I am moral. Hierophant means normal and ordinary too, so the two of these Tarot cards say ‘He is a normal guy’ or ‘an ordinary person.’

..     Page of Pentacles is ‘I believe’ or ‘his beliefs.’ Hierophant is the accepted philosophy, so I believe what everybody else believes – the accepted philosophy. I am conformist (Hierophant) in what I think (Page of Pentacles) is another way to express the same thing with the same cards.

..     Page of Pentacles is being; Hierophant is seeming to be. So I am being as clean as I look. Page of Pentacles is self-examination; Hierophant is decent. I am examining myself as to how decent I really am.

This is a rather enlightening perspective on ordinary things, with a side order of amusing. As civilized people, we project an image of ourselves that other people can deal with comfortably. This face greases and eases social intercourse, and is a fine and admirable thing. It is also polite not to question the projections of other people. We extend that politeness to not questioning the projections of organizations.

 

So, in light of all these projections, and in light of the fact we knowingly ignore that they ARE projections, we also have a counter assumption: We have contempt, privately, or we attempt to, for all these projections as hypocrisy and as phony. It’s a terrible insult to call someone a phony or a hypocrite. We find ourselves secretly, privately, devaluing people whose persona is too clean, don’t we? – chumps! Squares! Goody-goodies! Goody-two-shoes!

 

Our enlightening perspective is that some people live their projection: They have made themselves into what is acceptable to everyone, and that is who they want to be and who they really are.

 

Underlying this rumination is an invitation to live up to the projection, and/or to move the projection closer to what you are living, or a little of each, so the two can be the same or similar.

LEARN TAROT BY PICTURES

Page of Wands ……… Here is our Prince Charming, the handsome well-dressed well-spoken likable fellow. He deliberately projects a good image, and he may be vain or even foppish (the metrosexual thing, you know). Today we emphasize the projection of the good image because our whole theme is the distinction between our public image and who we are. He also means any form of the word ‘talk.’

.

Page of Pentacles …………. Introspection, here. He is about identity, about ‘who I am.’ He is examining that pentacle, and this thinking, feeling, opinion and observation is largely who Page of Pentacles is. He focuses on something – not as exclusively or as intensely as Knight of Pentacles does, who also stares at a pentacle – but he is engrossed and studying something. Page of Pentacles is so much about identity that this Tarot card in Tarot Verbatim™ often translates as simply a pronoun: I or me, he or him.

.

Hierophant ………. Today we zone in on Hierophant’s ‘good image’ meanings because the good image is what the other two cards represent strongly. Face, conformity, what is acceptable to ‘everybody’ that they are supposed to believe (or pretend to believe), the official story, surface appearances, morality: Those are Hierophant’s meanings we are using today. That is because our today subject is strongly the distinction between who you are and what you appear to be to others – the rifts between being decent and being righteous, being right and seeming to be right.
