Tarot Readings for You for January 19, 2015 Monday©

Jan 18, 2015 by

GUIDANCE      Getting where you want to be, from where you are, with what you have, is our subject. Squeaking by is success when you are making something from nothing – when your vehicle is worn and the rough road is steep too. Somewhere out there, they’re grading on the curve, we suggest – and you should too. Conforming to a pathetic place, you can be called number one and there’s your success label. Below average people become champions because that was a way out of a maybe desperate place by their estimation. Poor and proud, poor and ambitious, the poor in spirit making it through and out of dark night of the soul: We drink to all of 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 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!

Chariot – Five of Pentacles – Hierophant

 

.

LEARN TAROT BY OBSERVING

.

……………….……………………  Our spread has success, Chariot; it has failure, Five of Pentacles; and it has the middle ground of getting by or passing. Chariot is also getting it done no matter what is in the way, and by any means possible: ambition and the skill to back it up. Hierophant is also decency and religion, which calls forth the ‘dark night of the soul’ side of Five of Pentacles. You can see by looking that Five of Pentacles is about disability as well as about poor times and being worn out and depressed. Soo, we got not just stories, but case histories, here.

……………………….. Chariot shows the charioteer who, in his day, was the special op military hero and the strategist. The can-do Marine. This card is about using even magical otherworldly ability to get a project in ‘the real world’ done. Charioteers’ strategy and deeds won or lost battles back then. This card means getting there by using to advantage even the factors that would trip you up. He has wands instead of reins to make his vehicle go where he wants. He hitches them to oppose one another as each tries to turn in an opposite direction. The do-dads on his chariot are deliberately similar to some esoteric emblems, and the reversed colors on the sphinxes indicate their will to turn in directions opposite from one another. Today he is about ambition, aim, getting it done, success, and being a good manager.

……………………….. Five of Pentacles illustrates being numb with despair, and having your spiritual resources at ground level. Crippled, and dressed in rags in the snow, a mother and son trudge past the lit church where a bed and warm meal await them – trudge past because they do not see the solution to their predicament as they come upon it because of their despair. This card means desperation, misery, depression, lack of resources, poverty and poverty of spirit, being disabled (in any way, not just crippled), being exhausted and depleted, sick and tired, ‘out in the cold,’ even a stray animal on the street … or person, of course. It can translate ‘pathetic’ out of context once in a while, in language-based Tarot Verbatim™.

..………………………. Hierophant, the word, means ‘pope,’ and that’s the pope in the red robe and elaborate headdress, doing the usual ritual with his monks or priests. Naturally, Hierophant translates ‘church’ or ‘religion’ sometimes (any religion). Name any word – and there are many – that means ordinary, usual, normal, accepted, respectable, conventional, supposed to, conform, status quo, mainstream, enough, conservative, straight, good enough, passing, mindset … and this is the card that will cover it.

Hierophant also means physical, in the real world, because its core idea is the version of reality that the public, as opposed to the cognoscenti (‘ones in the know’), are given by organizations like churches and political powers. All the news that’s fit to print.

Hierophant means ‘no harm’ and ‘harmless’ as well as ‘decent’ and well-behaved or ‘Behave.’ It can reassure you, in a spread, that some harm does not really happen, or that a person is harmless (regardless of intent, by the way).

Frequent translates for Hierophant are ‘right,’ ‘should’ and ‘ought,’ which is true of Justice (another red robe) as well.

Watch for Hierophant to represent ‘face,’ and even ‘hypocrisy.’ Especially if it is accompanied by one of the cards that mean image (Page of Wands, Page of Pentacles), and to mean faking being righteous or honest when it is accompanied by one of the pretense or deceit cards like Six of Wands.

……….………… Chariot and Five of Pentacles  Chariot and Five of Pentacles represents getting it done (Chariot) with *nothing to do it with* (Five of Pentacles). It is winning (Chariot) in losing territory (Five of Pentacles) or snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. It’s taking charge of a project (Chariot) that lacks funding or materials (Five of Pentacles). It’s below average persons (Five of Pentacles) being champions (Chariot). It’s managing (Chariot) on a shoestring (Five of Pentacles). We achieve great things (Chariot) out of desperation (Five of Pentacles). Do whatever it takes (Chariot) to get what you are missing (Five of Pentacles). Poverty (Five of Pentacles) is your challenge (Chariot). Being poor (Five of Pentacles), you are ambitious (Chariot). Being a success (Chariot) and being a failure (Five of Pentacles). I was poor (Five of Pentacles), and now I’m successful (Chariot). An achievement (Chariot) when you are feeling drained and exhausted (Five of Pentacles). It’s the old clunker (Five of Pentacles means decrepit and Chariot is a vehicle). I’m doing something about (Chariot) feeling sorry for myself (Five of Pentacles). I aim to (Chariot), even as I fail at it (Five of Pentacles). You fight off (Chariot, the warrior) being sick at heart (Five of Pentacles). I am dealing with (Chariot) Dark Night of the Soul (Five of Pentacles). Snatch victory (Chariot) from the jaws of defeat (Five of Pentacles). x..

……….………… Chariot and Hierophant   Chariot and Hierophant juxtaposes something very successful, Chariot, with something very ordinary, Hierophant. They could say ‘Winning is my status quo.’ Chariot is winning, and Hierophant is the usual thing. That idea can be phrased just as easily: We commonly achieve great things. Average people (Hierophant) can be champions (Chariot). Get it done (Chariot) with what you have (Hierophant). You achieve your purpose (Chariot) by accepting. Do whatever it takes to get (Chariot) enough (Hierophant). Your challenge (Chariot) to be mainstream (Hierophant). You ought to be (Hierophant) ambitious (Chariot). Success (Chariot) is by definition (Hierophant). We manage (Chariot) to make ends meet (Hierophant as ‘enough’). When I was honest (Hierophant), I was successful (Chariot). Conforming (Hierophant), you are a success(Chariot). Passing (Hierophant) is an achievement(Chariot). The vehicle (Chariot) runs just fine (Hierophant as ‘acceptable’). I’m doing something about (Chariot) being in a rut (Hierophant). I aim to be (Chariot) a decent person (Hierophant). This church (Hierophant) feels responsible (Chariot). I am determined to (Chariot) pass (Hierophant. A conventional (Hierophant) strategy (Chariot). x..

……..………… Five of Pentacles and Hierophant     Five of Pentacles and Hierophant are about being below average (Five of Pentacles) and being average (Hierophant). Both are about church – Hierophant even means church, and their pictures tell you this. Make something (Chariot) out of nothing (Five of Pentacles). Accepting (Hierophant) the lack of resources (Five of Pentacles). To get enough of (Hierophant) what you are missing (Five of Pentacles). Being a failure (Five of Pentacles) is a definition (Hierophant in its ‘official’ and ‘name’ phase). Doing without (Five of Pentacles), we make ends meet (Hierophant). When I was honest (Hierophant), I was poor (Five of Pentacles). Conforming (Hierophant) to this dismal place (Five of Pentacles as a ghetto type thing). Passing (Hierophant) when you are feeling drained and exhausted (Five of Pentacles). Being in a rut (Hierophant) and feeling sorry for myself (Five of Pentacles). To be a decent person (Hierophant), even as I fail at it (Five of Pentacles). Being sick at heart (Five of Pentacles) on a normal day (Hierophant). Dark Night of the soul (Five of Pentacles) in my religious life (Hierophant). I wish I had never (Five of Pentacles as ‘heartsick’) conformed like that (Hierophant). x..

Making it through the night is often the route to success, we point out. When you have been there and done that in desperate scenes, you can handle anything without feeling sorry for yourself – and without feeling sorry you did what would get the job done. Dire poverty was the impetus for some people to become very wealthy. Desperate living brings some people to God. We are about that hitting-bottom thing today, and we are raising our glass to the unsung survivors of that dark night.

LEARN TAROT BY PICTURES

.

Chariot …….. Chariot demonstrates accomplishing your purpose or your mission (your life purpose) by any means possible, and being the responsible one, or being the leader – the hands-on leader – the man in the field, not the CEO at the desk. Success: Chariot has the drive and the ability to meet the challenge, and to finesse the win without fanfare. Ace of Swords sometimes follows him. Chariot means skill and ability, with an emphasis on strategy, determination, and aim or intent. Chariot means choice, to decide and decision sometimes – not today. It also, since Tarot Verbatim™ is literal, means a car or truck, or any vehicle including an airplane or tank or heavy equipment. It can indicate someone drives to see you, or someone is ‘on the road.’ It also stands for a truck driver.

.

Five of Pentacles …………. Five of Pentacles illustrates the Roman Catholic ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ concept, which mystics internationally accept. (There’s a famous mystical book by that title.) Hitting bottom, desperate times, even being homeless on the street like a stray in the snow. Numbing out. Mother and son are so numb they don’t see the church they could duck into and spend the night in a good bed and have a decent meal, as they go by it barefoot and crippled in the blizzard.

Five of Pentacles is lack. Lack of anything, including spiritual juice. It is about poverty, lack of funds, needing money for something, being unfunded, poor folks as a class, street people, poor times.

.

Hierophant …………. Hierophant is about the face of things, specifically the respectable face that we present to our public, which our organizations also do, presenting us their respectable fronts. So, hypocrisy, here we come. Hypocrisy has its good side, you know – the pretense oils the gears of social intercourse.

Hierophant also means harmless (no harm comes from – and look to your subject or to other cards to complete the phrase). It means decent, behaving oneself, conforming to respectable guidelines, and ‘clean’ as in cleaning up your act or ‘keeping a clean nose.’ It can indicate, for example, that your medication has no harmful side effects to you.

Hierophant is making a ‘C.’ Hierophant is ordinary, average, mundane, passing,

normal, the usual, okay, the expected. The mainstream, the beaten path, the status quo.

‘Should’ and ‘ought’ and ‘supposed to’ are very frequent words for Hierophant.

    The church feels responsible for the poor. Two charioteers battled. One, from the church, fought for the lepers. She lost.

    If you only knew how relevant this was to what’s been showing up. There are a lot of things I still can’t put in words, thank you. I’m going back and re-examining the day in light of your readings. The patterns show up on many levels. It’s very helpful, like listening to the commentary on the nature channel.

    I like seeing the same day in the light of other days readings as well. You’re showing us the important patterns in the world. Thank you for everything.

    • What is happening is that, since so very many people are using this site as reference material for the meanings of combined combinations of cards, I am putting more depth into the writing. I am diving deep into the heart of the subconscious underpinnings of these concepts. THAT allows people to apply the words to their own experience because, as you say here, three are many different levels to our experience.

    • I too have noticed the same themes coming back, in runs of a few days, and the popping up later to do the same thing. Interesting. I don’t have time to read through them to study that, and since I write them, it’s hard to read them with fresh eyes.
      Maybe you could analyze that.

  2. Sushi

    One of the wonderful things about the rider-waite deck is that you can read them for 20 years and still notice new details about the cards you hadn’t noticed before.

    • True enough.
      A reader told me that the fact that the legs were cut off in the picture of Four of Swords was significant as a medical question for a client, for her. May have been about amputation I don’t remember. Hope not, if it was positive.

  3. Sushi

    One symbol on the 5 of Pentacles that sometimes goes unnoticed is the bell around the boy’s neck. In days of yore lepers were made to wear a bell to alert those around them that they were nearby so people could avoid coming into contact with them. So to me when I see the 5 of Pentacles, it’s not so much that they don’t notice the church, but that it is questionable whether or not they would be welcomed in.

    • Yeah, I didn’t notice that.
      I wonder if the church really would shut out such desperate people. That church-as-a-refuge-thing was big in the Middle Ages, and still is in some places. Remember Rwanda massacres despite the people huddled in churches?

      I will do a Google search on this as soon as I can get Yahoo off my search. I swear Yahoo is some kind of stealth thing.

      • Here’s your bell thing, sure as snuff:

        http://dhss.alaska.gov/gcdse/Pages/history/html_content_main.aspx

        RELIGION HAS PLAYED AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN PROVIDING BASIC SERVICES AND SHAPING ATTITUDES TOWARD PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES.

        SOCIETAL VALUES: Fear and obsession with God; belief that people with disabilities get what they deserve.

        RESPONSES TO DISABILITY: Exile; refuge in leper colonies or church shelters.

        STEREOTYPE: Persons with disabilities as subhuman organisms: as “animal-like” or “vegetative,” not deserving of all human rights; often referred to as “so-called human beings.

        Leper’s Bell

        Medical Viewpoint: Having leprosy meant living a life outside of society. When traveling through a town, people with leprosy were required to ring a bell, alerting others to their presence.
