Tarot Readings for You for January 1, 2015 Thursday©

Dec 31, 2014 by

GUIDANCE       Most people seek to look as honest as they can, and we make allowances for that when we deal with others. After all, we too are projecting our best self to them as well. Today we focus on the tendency to think in black and white rather than the more complex shades we actually deal with every day. The bad guy versus the good guy. Today we are looking for the good in the bad guy as well as for the bad in the good guy.

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 meanings of the three cards in the pictures in the Tarot Readings.  It explains how these 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 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 – than a personal reading would give you. Also, pronouns are flexible: If the sentence feels like it’s yours, and it says ‘he,’ but you’re a ‘she,’ well, it’s yours.

*AND if you write names of any two cards into the Google search bar, it will give you meanings of those!

Ace of Cups – Hermit – Six of Wands

LEARN TAROT BY OBSERVING

……………….……………………     Interesting contrasts make interesting distinctions here. Ace of Cups and Hermit are clean (Ace of Cups) and honest (Hermit); are God (Ace of Cups) and religion (Hermit, a monk); are good health (Ace of Cups) and a healer (Hermit is a physician). Very genuine wholesome stuff there. Six of Wands is ‘Appearances are deceiving; things are not what they seem; a frenemy in your camp; winning a battle that loses the war; outwitting or outwitted; phony … and so on. The easy interpretation of these two trunks of meaning is about being deliberately misled. We see another and deeper meaning that although things here are genuine, there’s an invisible fly in the ointment. He loves you, but he loves you in his own way, which doesn’t include paying attention to you or taking care of you. There’s such a thing as an honest crook, or a player who really loves you. Hermit, honest; Six of Wands, crook. Sometimes there’s a twist to the story in real life too.

………………………..     Ace of Cups is a word picture in Roman Catholic symbols. The dove is God as Holy Spirit; the wafer from the holy communion ritual puts Holy Spirit into mass consciousness through the five senses (represented by the five flows from the fountain) of an individual. So the idea is that a person channels the presence, the influence, of God into mass consciousness. This really expresses the influence you have directly and indirectly on other humans by your daily life. This is of course a card added in the Middle Ages to the deck to prevent Tarot users from being murdered as witches. These spiritual and religious meanings are not preeminent ones.

In real practice, Ace of Cups is ‘good,’ good anything: good person, good health, in good shape, harmless, wholesome, beneficial, clean, pure (in any sense), love and unconditional love, honest, genuine, real. The ‘love’ meaning expands to include cooperation, getting along, agreeing, and going with the flow.

If the reading involves a leak, Ace of Cups is the leak.

………………………..      Hermit shows a monk on foot at night in the cold looking for travelers to bring them to the comfort of his headquarters for a hot meal and a warm bed. Hermit is help. Hermit comes to you. Hermit is a friend, counselor, physician, old or older man, is celibate or monogamous, knows, investigates, watches, looks for, searches, and is ‘on the path.’

………………………..     Six of Wands is very flexible … many applications. Its illustration is about a battle in which King Richard III of England was lured into chasing some Arabs, and was kidnapped. The next in line to the throne arranged that, and made sure Richard was never ransomed. Pyrrhic victory – like a football player who heads for the wrong goal post. ‘Things are not the way they seem’ is the catch-all term for Six of Wands. It warns of betrayal by someone who is on your side, someone you trust. So this is the player in romance; this is the company that isn’t going to pay you, or the employee who is making an illicit profit from his or her job; the buddy who undermines you or takes advantage, or uses you; this is the televangelist, the bankster, the crook, the con artist, the phony charity … and this is self-delusion or misleading others. Six of Wands means pretense and pretend, and it involves playing a role.

……….…………      Ace of Cups and Hermit     Ace of Cups and Hermit, as I wrote at the beginning of this, are “clean (Ace of Cups) and honest (Hermit); are God (Ace of Cups) and religion (Hermit, a monk); are good health (Ace of Cups) and a healer (Hermit is a physician).” Ace of Cups is love; Hermit is an old man. These two cards in Tarot Verbatim ™ say both ‘I love the old man’ and ‘The old man loves me.’ We also say ‘love you and look out for you’ because Hermit is looking out (in both senses). Well, we’ve got ‘looking for love’ the same way. We’ve got an old man who is healthy, because Ace of Cups is good health. So we have ‘seeking good health’ too because Hermit is seeking. We have seeking God or seekers after God, with Ace of Cups being God and Hermit seeking. I am old but I am in good shape – Ace of Cups means ‘in good shape.’ Ace of Cups is mass consciousness as well as divine love (See the explanation above, under Ace of Cups.), so Hermit is bringing divine love to mass consciousness. Hermit is also bringing health to (people) because Ace of Cups is good health and Hermit is bringing good things to people. Ace of Cups is peace, so Hermit is either/both seeking peace and bringing peace. Hermit seeks to be a good person, because Ace of Cups means ‘good.’ Hermit means to show the way, guide, demonstrate – so ‘Show us how to be genuine’ because both Hermit and Ace of Cups mean ‘genuine.’ And it easy (Ace of Cups) to be honest (Hermit). x..

……..……………     Hermit and Six of Wands      Hermit and Six of Wands are opposites too: honesty and deceit, the real and the phony, being on the path versus leading others astray. I am looking out for you (Hermit) where things are not as they seem (Six of Wands). It’s all a game (Six of Wands) except when it’s real (Hermit). I see (Hermit) how manipulated I have been (Six of Wands). An old person (Hermit) has outwitted the system (Six of Wands). Being mindful (Hermit) of the pitfalls (Six of Wands). Show us (Hermit) the tricks (Six of Wands). Let me show you (Hermit) the shortcuts (Six of Wands). To look (i.e. seem) (Six of Wands) honest (Hermit). x..

It’s seldom that everything is as it should be at the same time. It’s also seldom that everything is all wrong at the same time. There are distinctions to be made to everything everywhere. Reality is not as advertised. While we know this in our head, we tend to paint the rest of a good scene with sparkly paint, and we tend to take the black brush to the scene that’s mostly dark. Well, keep an eye out for the percentages, we remind ourselves: Some people can be salvaged from their setting; sometimes being ‘the picture of health’ is only a picture; some things are wonderful as long as you follow the instructions. I remind myself of this because it’s so easy to lose track of it.

Ace of Cups ……..   Ace of Cups is love, and it’s unconditional love. It’s all good. (Read the explanation of the illustration in Learn Tarot By Observing above.) It’s ease and easy and easygoing and going with the flow, letting and accepting and cooperating. It’s peace and spirituality, the good part of mass consciousness, flourishing and being in good shape. It’s ‘good’ anything at all: good health, good person, wholesome, clean, pure, honest and well-intentioned. It’s the real thing. It means benefit and beneficial. It means harmless. It means genuine. Speaking of flow, Ace of Cups can be rain or any sort of leak, or water itself. You should know a body of water is a universal symbol of mass consciousness.

.

Hermit  ………….  Hermit is a monk, a service monk (which means he does useful things). Think of the characteristics of that office, and you will pull Hermit’s meanings together. This one is a physician, and he is ‘on the path’ out looking patiently for travelers to help them to his place where there’s a warm bed and a hot meal. So Hermit comes to you; Hermit is looking out for someone; Hermit is a helpful friend, a friend when you are in need. He is a wise person, a counselor or confidante. Hermit is an old or older (or mature) man, is celibate or true to his mate. Hermit knows, is wise, is spiritual and is a spiritual guide or teacher. He also watches, investigates, searches and looks for – which makes this card also read ‘surveillance’ or ‘surveil.’

.

Six of Wands  ………….   Six of Wands The story of its illustration is written for you in Learn Tarot by Observing, above. ‘Do not trust the environment’ Six of Wands is saying. Something is up. You are being misled (or are misleading someone: Action in Tarot goes both ways). Betrayal is afoot. Sometimes, when Six of Wands is on its good behavior, it just means playing a role or pretending or ‘acting as if.’ Six of Wands is the con artist on a large or a small scale, a leader who betrays followers: bankster, politician, televangelist, charity racketeer. Six of Wands is the bartender who uses a phony shot glass, or a person who makes a lot of promises and doesn’t do any of it.

    Can’t find a way to express it more than… this makes perfect sense to me today.
    Thank you Emily.

    • It’s good to keep this in mind. Minds, generically, slip into dualism. Shifting out of it is an act of will.

  2. Pandora Pritchard

    I had no idea the VI of Wands was about Richard III. This adds a whole new meaning. Thanks!
