Tarot Readings for You for January 13, 2015 Tuesday©

Jan 12, 2015 by

GUIDANCE       Does love hurt as bad as crime? We explore this strange concept along the lines of betrayal and vulnerability. Steal my wallet … or steal my heart. A good man is taking a chance on love, the same sort of good man who can get away with crime. You can have a sneaky partner in business or in love, you know? And you can have a partner in crime as well as a partner in love, hopefully not at the same time.

King of Cups – Seven of Swords – Lovers

LEARN TAROT BY OBSERVING

.

……………….……………………      The main topic here is taking a chance on love, because King of Cups is the emotional and emotionally available man, is your honey, is the gentleman or the mild-mannered good guy; and Lovers is a love (or other) connection; and Seven of Swords is most definitely taking a chance. Since Seven of Swords is such a strong (and usually dastardly) card, it tends to dominate its spreads. However, it means gutsy things too – taking a chance, daring, risque and risk. So we have a good emotional connection on some thin ice. Stories.

………………………..      King of Cups has few meanings, but does have a spectrum. His main application is the good man, the emotional man, the emotionally available man, her honey, the patient and easygoing fellow, Walter Mitty the lackluster fellow, the heavy drinker, the weak or ineffectual man, the fellow with the desk job or the bureaucrat. He is even the government. King of Cups is the vulnerable man too, and here in this spread we have Seven of Swords ready to violate his trust big time.

……………………….          . Here comes Seven of Swords, that guy! This is the fellow, in the illustrated story, who has the nerve to go into enemy camp (in broad daylight, it looks like!) and make off with their weapons. He may be foolhardy or even self-destructive instead of (or in addition to being) brave, though, since he carries the blades pointy side down in his bare hands. Derring-do. This is the card for special forces, black ops, missions – anything illicit like that. He could even be a terrorist or on a suicide mission (but I have never encountered this). But he is usually up-to-something socially.

In application, on a normal day’s inquiry, though, this is the person who violates trust, who seriously double-crosses or ‘pulls the rug out from under you’ emotionally, financially or in any other way. This is the thief. This is not a friend, necessarily, who betrays you; it may be nothing personal to him, may be like a mugging would be.

Seven of Swords, on the other hand, is the thrill of getting away with it, as well as the heartache of being vulnerable to it … like when something gets the best of you, and also like when you pay them back. Seven of Swords is the risk factor. Seven of Swords is having the guts to do it. Seven of Swords is sometimes advice to take that chance.

Seven of Swords is also revenge and vengeance, a kind of ‘Fuck with me, and I fuck with you’ attitude that disregards risk to accomplish evening a score. Haven’t we all been there to some degree at some time or another?

In romance, Seven of Swords is cheating, sneaking around, and betraying trust.

..……………...…………      Lovers is one of the most complex cards. It has a lot of unrelated meanings. It means connection of any kind, but you feel it never quite connects, itself. Don’t trust it to mean ‘loves you’ – look for verification. You see Adam and Eve with their respective trees, a volcano in the distance (passion – and it can be literal once in a while, an eruption or an actual volcano). You see an angel that doesn’t look like a guardian angel to me, what with the orange and green hairdo, the red wings … more like the angel that evicted them from the garden, more like surveillance. But the guardian angel is one of its meanings, nevertheless. And so is surveillance.

Lovers can be a connection to God, since you have people, and the angel in the sky. This card can also indicate protection (including divine protection, of course), and even insurance – yes, literally, an insurance coverage.

The two people bring in partnership as well. Love partners is a common interpretation. Lovers is also one of the cards that indicates propinquity (standing next to or nearby), since they are, well, standing next to one another. Once in a great while this Lovers card just means ‘together’ or ‘two people’ as in ‘Two people were there.’

 

……….…………      King of Cups and Seven of Swords      King of Cups and Seven of Swords combine the good, vulnerable, emotional and affectionate sweetheart of a guy (King of Cups in person) with taking a chance, something getting the best of him, a dangerous adventure or liaison, cheating, getting even, thieving, taking foul advantage, crime, getting away with something, pulling it off, risk, being sneaky, living dangerously and ‘behind your back’ stuff. King of Cups as the calm unassertive fellow appears here either as the vulnerable victim of skulduggery, or as the respectable-type fellow who gets away with the skulduggery. (If respectable police found, say, lovable Marcus Welby, M.D.’s fingerprints on the robbed safe, don’t you think they would double-check?) King of Cups does suggest that ‘Nice guys finish last.’

x..

…………………      King of Cups and Lovers    King of Cups and Lovers combine the easygoing loving man with a love relationship, so ‘the love of a good man’ is their signature headline, or ‘me and my honey.’ A love affair with a quiet man. King of Cups is a quiet man, like High Priestess is the quiet woman. He could be quiet about the love affair itself, of course. I love a guy who is a gentleman, because King of Cups is a gentleman. King of Cups as a good guy is a good partner, and Lovers is partners.

Other meanings: King of Cups is the drinking man and is government-anything – the bureaucrat or the bureaucracy, at any level. So we get phrases like: drinking buddies, and ‘connected with some agency’ and even ‘government is your partner’ because Lovers is the partner and the connection.

Lovers’ connection-with-the-divine meaning makes ‘godly man’ when it hitches up with King of Cups. x..

…….…………       Seven of Swords and Lovers     Seven of Swords and Lovers is an uh-oh combination. It combines risky dangerous treachery (Seven of Swords) with a direct partnership-type connection, and even with the one you love (Lovers). These two are a major alert unless surrounding cards remove the stinger. It helps that Seven of Swords also means ‘daring.’ The best meaning in love spreads for this combination is ‘taking a chance on love,’ or ‘We take a chance on one another,’ so try them first. (Sigh.)

Seven of Swords is sneaking, so, sneaking around behind someone’s back – and Seven of Swords is betrayal and double-cross. There’s a movie – a classic one – whose title is either ‘Dangerous Liaisons’ or ‘Les Liaisons Dangeroux.’ That could be the headline for Seven of Swords and Lovers in love spreads. You know what Lovers is. Seven of Swords obviously is the risky, dangerous, traitor.

Seven of Swords means ‘criminal,’ and therefore means ‘illicit,’ so you have ‘illicit love affair’ as well as ‘cheating lover.’ Ouch!

Seven of Swords can be crime, and Lovers does mean partners, so you have ‘partners in crime.’ That can be tongue-in-cheek or it can be serious. Once again, look to the other cards!

Seven of Swords means both ‘betrayal’ and ‘getting even,’ so sometimes it means ‘getting even for the betrayal.’

Seven of Swords means ‘pull it off’ and Lovers is partners (therefore buddies) so ‘These buddies (have the guts to) pull anything off.

Seven of Swords is living dangerously – maybe the daring and edgy type of person – and Lovers suggests being godly because of that angel overlooking the lives of those humans – so you have a godly person who lives dangerously.

Seven of Swords is someone … or something … getting the best of (you). Lovers can simply mean ‘our’ or ‘we’ or ‘us.’ So our … something or another … is getting the best of us. x..

We compare the thrill and the risk of love with the thrill and risk of crime. We compare being cheated on in love to getting even or revenge. Emotions … similar emotional experience … are common to both, and Tarot is pointing that out. Risk – the risk of losing something – is what these scenarios have in common. Featured in the stories is the good man who is the quiet type in love, and also the good man who can get away with murder in crime. Betrayal is also common to both scenarios often enough: Your partner can betray you in money or in love (or both). We even point out governments are your involuntary partner.

LEARN TAROT BY PICTURES

King of Cups …….. King of Cups in his picture – as I see him – has the perfect expression for his meanings. You can see him as the quiet fellow, the drinking man, the lover-not-the-fighter, the vulnerable man, and even the pencil pusher – the fellow with a desk job or the bureaucrat. These are most of his meanings, although King of Cups can be government itself, any level of any of them. The water around him indicates emotion … and it surrounds him.

.

Seven of Swords …………. Seven of Swords shows a fellow who is hotfooting it out of enemy camp with all of their weapons that he can carry, and he is carrying them blade down in his bare hands (Duh!), which indicates he is potentially self destructive rather than just being a hero of the conflict. He certainly has the guts to pull it off, which is a major meaning of Seven of Swords. He is also the traitor (One man’s hero is another man’s terrorist, you know.) He is sneaky, which makes him ‘sneaking around’ and betraying his lover in romance spreads. Violation of trust belongs to Seven of Swords, along with ‘traitor’ and ‘double-cross.’ And he is also revenge. Revenge is heedless of consequences quite often, so the blades-in-my-bare-hands might be hinting at that motive.

At any rate, this is a card that appears way less frequently than random distribution, and when you find it on your table, do take a good look.

.

Lovers …………. Lovers has so many elements in its illustration. You have Adam and Eve – a couple, two people together, partners in love – upfront. Between them in the background is a volcano – passion, an eruption of any sort, or literally a volcano. You have that funky angel overlooking them who doubles as both surveillance and protection – and the protection includes insurance coverage meanings. Lovers mainly means a connection (of any kind at all) and partners (any kind at all, including love partners)

  1. Mary

    As you know, it was quite an eventful yesterday for me. Thanks for talking to me. I’ll keep your advice in mind as I walk through this minefield. Thanks.

    • Mary

      Wanted to let you know my mentor echoed your advice.

      • Mary

        I didn’t tell him what you said. I told him the situation. He knows the people, and he said what you did, but in a less colorful way.

        • Mary

          So what is a good foil to the 7 of swords?

          • I went through the deck, and pulled 31 cards that could.

            First, any card that negates cancels what it applies to by adding ‘no, not, never’ to the sentence. Death, Two of Swords, Four of Cups (it doesn’t go through), etc.

            Second, any card that means ‘thinking about’ may turn Seven of Swords into ‘thinking about doing the dirty deed.’ That would be Page of Pentacles, Seven of Pentacles, Hanged Man, maybe even Knight of Pentacles but he is really intent so maybe not.

            Third, any card that means no harm or harmless, like Hierophant and Ace of Cups, indicates that Seven of Swords’ dastardly intent will not come to fruition. Also, any card that means ‘immune from harm,’ such as World, Strength, Fool.

            Fourth, if Seven of Swords is in a ‘past’ position in Celtic Cross, or if it paired with, or modifies, another card that means ‘past’ like Six of Cups, like Six of Swords leaving because of past Seven of Swords’ event(s), and like Five of Cups mourning the past – which could be being sorry for a past betrayal could be repentance.

            Fifth, any card that says ‘not doing,’ like Four of Swords.

            Sixth, the anxiety cards, like Nine of Wands or Page of Swords, may say ‘afraid of being betrayed’ or ‘the bad guy is too nervous to do it.’

            Seventh, cards like Eight of Swords that mean ‘can’t.’

            Seventh: Is there another ‘fight’ or ‘dirty tricks’ card modifying Seven of Swords? Five of Swords and Seven of Swords could be one bully outsmarting another, or two thieving relatives fighting over deceased’s jewelry.

            Eighth, cards that mean ‘over and over’ or ‘ongoing’ or ‘yet another,’ like Two of Pentacles, Eight of Pentacles, Eight of Wands mean whatever Seven of Swords represents is something that isn’t a new factor, something you are probably aware of.

            Ninth, any card that means ‘talking about it,’ like Page of Wands, Eight of Wands, turns Seven of Swords’ intent into something that is talk rather than action. Judgment, a talk card, would mean it’s news, it’s announced, and might mean an arrest or other court-like action. Seven of Swords plus Justice says ‘criminal law’ or ‘criminal justice’ or ‘law enforcement’ because Justice has a sword too, you know. It could also indicate skulduggery on the part of the police, lawyers, court system, etc. Context is king.

            Tenth, any card that indicates a ‘near miss’ means it doesn’t happen -like Eight of Cups aborted course. or like a negative card making Wheel of Fortune say ‘doesn’t happen,’ since Wheel of Fortune means it does happen.

            Eleventh, if it is associated with a card that means future or oncoming, like Three of Wands or Two of Wands.

            Twelfth, Nine of Cups paired with it means ‘things happen your way regarding Seven of Cups.’ Wheel of Fortune paired with Seven of Swords could mean the Seven of Swords situation will be optimum for your side … or it could mean it happens. Poke around further and see which it is.

            Thirteenth, a card of surveillance, investigation, or watching turns Seven of Cups into ‘being investigated for’
            (Hermit) or being watched (Knight of Pentacles, Lovers-as-surveillance). Hermit can be a camera making a video these days.

            Fourteenth, are the justice cards and their support cards around? Justice, Judgment, Six of Pentacles, so that Seven of Swords is executing payback, revenge – one of his meanings. The justice cards could also mean prosecution for crime. These cards could also be saying Seven of Swords is getting what he deserves.

            Fifteenth, watch for Tower here. Tower can mean the perp succeeds in blowing something up; it could mean perp gets arrested or blown up in the process of his evil deed (Tower is destruction of evil, but it’s also destruction. It’s also ‘overthrow.’) If Tower’s application is not obvious, do another layout, another question.

            Sixteenth: Remember Seven of Swords is not always something you want to deter. Seven of Swords can be having the daring (guts) to pull it off; it can mean risk or taking a chance; it can mean adventure; and it can mean disarming your enemy – which Strength would support, since Strength’s force of personality is taming the predator.

            I wrote this in a hurry and did not intend for the whole treatise to spill out, but this is a pretty good synopsis of Seven of Swords.

  2. The Lovers equal insurance coverage for me, wow, I know I shouldn’t be surprised by the accuracy of these readings but they still amaze me! My old health insurer is refusing to let go and billed me for this month – taking money out of my bank- and is NOT calling back. Healthcare.gov has been the ally confirming all is in order (would that be the King of Cups?). Anywho, am sure it will all be worked out but this is another admonition to stay on top of the situation and an unexpected way to learn the varied stories of the tarot.

    • Seven of Swords means you’re screwed, at least by intent or potentially.

      Yes, insurance is one of Lovers’ meanings, and King of Cups is the bureaucrat. Insurance company is the same as government, especially here, these days.

      Practically, I suggest back charging your debit or credit card, pronto. I do this all the time.

      Hell of a way to learn Tarot, Girl.
      Emily
