Tarot Readings for You for January 20, 2015 Tuesday©

Jan 19, 2015 by

GUIDANCE         I win one battle after another with myself – a seasoned veteran of internal conflicts to get the sides of myself that want to take advantage in line with the rest of us. When you resolve those conflicts, win the battles within, we say, what happens is that the battles without are also finished. When you think of the perfect squelch to a social antagonist, you know, you never get to use it. There’s a Law of Social Exchanges that says when you solve it in your head, you solve it at the event level. Attitude accounts for some of it, but there’s an attitude in the air that fixes ‘the next time that happens’ too, even when the exchange will not involve the same persons. Try, and you will think of some examples in your own life.

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!

LEARN TAROT BY OBSERVING

.

……………….…………………… At a glance, we are about battles or struggles: You see the smirking fellow who has beaten his friends and taken their blades, and you see the woman who pets the beast she has disarmed. So both cards involve battles, and both involve disarming (Making the predator purr is disarming him). Eight of Wands makes those fights verbal ones and is sprinkling plurals on our nouns today. Note that neither of these cards shows the action: Both are after the fact. Strength is really about overcoming, and that includes overcoming ourselves (self-control, handling habits).

………………………..Eight of Wands, you are so multifaceted! Here you go, sprinkling those S’s all over our nouns, speeding up the action (Quickly is your favorite word, isn’t it?), and making the action mere talk at times too.

……………………….. Five of Swords, we itch to wipe that smirk off your face … except when your smirk is ours, of course. ‘Gotcha,’ you say. You steal, you take advantage, you misrepresent what happens, you intimidate, you throw your weight around. Boo-hiss at all this! Five of Swords turns inside out: Watch for it to mean turning the tables on the bully it also represents. And watch for it to mean revenge, evening the score, because sometimes it is outsmarting the opposition, which of course is Strength’s territory. She owns it; he is on it once in a while.

..……………………….Strength is your ability to see it coming and prevent it, your skill at handling opposition or handling downright ‘out to get you’ predatory attack (which is what Mr. Five of Swords there is all about), your ability … by the strength of *who you are* … to prevent or deflect the interference before it even gets to you. When you can handle it, it avoids you.

……….…………. Eight of Wands and Five of Swords   Eight of Wands and Five of Swords is a verbal (Eight of Wands) battle (Five of Swords). It is many (Eight of Wands) battles (Five of Swords) – or that could say ‘One battle after another.’ Eight of Wands says ‘all,’ so we have ‘All my battles’ when we add Five of Swords, which could be ‘struggles’ too. Five of Swords is the bully and intimidator who gets the best of people, so ‘More and more (Eight of Wands) things get the best of me.’ Remember how cocky Five of Swords is? Well, ‘ so many things I feel cocky about.’ Five of Swords has a snarly attitude so ‘It’s one more militant feeling after another.’ Five of Swords takes advantage, so ‘Each time I am taken advantage of.’ Five of Swords intimidates us, so ‘All the things that intimidate him.’ Eight of Wands means ‘quickly,’ so ‘Quickly get taken advantage of’ because Five of Swords takes advantage. ‘You have so many (Eight of Wands) intruders’ (Five of Swords). ‘One more pushy person,’ since Five of Swords, putting it mildly, is pushy. ‘A veteran of many conflicts’ because you have the fighter, and the plural, and many conflicts makes you a veteran of them. ‘ A more militant attitude’ because Eight of Wands means ‘increasing’ and ‘more and more,’ and Five of Swords has that kind of attitude. Verbal (Eight of Wands is talk.) aggressors (Five of Swords), which are hecklers. He talks (Eight of Wands) tough (Five of Swords). Your list (Eight of Wands) of battles (Five of Swords is battle). A lot of (Eight of Wands) put-downs (Five of Swords puts his friends down in the picture). There’s a lot of thievery here. (Five of Wands is a thief.) ‘You’ve got a lot of fights on your hands’ plays into the ‘hands’ part of Strength. One more macho man – because Five of Swords is macho man, and by now you know Eight of Wands. x..

……….………… Eight of Wands and Strength  Eight of Wands and Strength combine talking with shutting someone up, so you think of hecklers. They also say she gets the best of (Strength) all of them (Eight of Wands). See how Strength has ahold of the perp’s mouth? – You can see not letting (Strength) yourself or someone else say something (Eight of Wands). You can see more and more (Eight of Wands) control over your bad habits, internal demons and other proprietary private junk – because Strength overcomes both externally and internally whatever impedes her, and has strong character. Strength is self-improvement on steroids at times. Eight of Wands turns Strength’s strong into stronger because it Eight of Wands ‘more and more’ application. You can double-dip and re-use another Eight of Wands phrase in the same sentence, and say ‘I am stronger than all of them.’ Strength has a grip on things (see drawing) so ‘More and more (Eight of Wands), I have a grip (Strength) on things (Eight of Wands). Strength overcomes bad habits, as we know, and overcomes them one by one, or overcomes them quickly, or overcomes them one at a time, with a little help from Eight of Wands. These two say ‘overcome a lot of things’ too.

Strength solves problems, so with Eight of Wands, she solves all the problems, or solves them quickly, etc. That also reads ‘the solution to all the problems.’ Strength means ‘handle’ quite often (those hands again!) so ‘I can handle all the problems, or all the struggles, etc. And ‘You handle intrusions’ – the lion is intruding, would you say? – ‘so well because you have so many of them (Eight of Wands).’

Strength is an assertive woman, so Eight of Wands makes ‘one more assertive woman.’ Strength is a strong influence on a person, so ‘Her influence on him makes him (Strength) even more (Eight of Wands). Eight of Wands is ‘a lot’ and Strength adds ‘to prevent here’ or ‘for me to overcome here.’ So she’s got a lot on her hands – see?

‘I win one battle after another with myself’ is about Strength’s overcoming internally. x..

……..………… Five of Swords and Strength   Five of Swords and Strength  is the showdown between the intruder (Five of Wands) and the able turf-owner (Strength). The bully has picked on the martial artist here. The pictures suggest he becomes her fan … which is what often happens, in real life, when you defeat the bully you know. The sentences here sound like affirmation or bragging: I am stronger than my opposition. I have a grip on things that got the best of me. I am overcoming all the habits that overcame me. I am silencing my inner opposition. I have overcome and I feel cocky about it. I shut the mouths of the aggressors.

Strength represents the solution to a situation, and is a person who solves problems, and Five of Swords intimidates, so we have ‘She solves his problem with people who intimidate him.’

Strength disarms the opposition, and Five of Swords is the opposition, so together these two cards say ‘Disarm the opposition.

‘Influence’ is one of strength’s words: She influences. Her influence makes him, Five of Swords, edgy.

Then, ‘You’ve got a fight on your hands, Girl,’ because Five of Swords is a fight, and we have that ‘hands’ thing going on with Strength. A macho man, Five of Swords, for her to tame, because she is the lion tamer. Five of Swords is a thief, and Strength prevents things from happening, so ‘Thievery to prevent, here.’

Both Five of Swords and Strength show a battle. Strength, as I said, is also about internal battles. So we have ‘I win the battle with myself.’ x..

The more battles you fight, the better you are at it, until you are so used to it you no longer are intimidated, so you don’t have to fight any more: The pests avoid contact with you. You have that je ne sais quoi about you, that I-dunno-what look that gives you the right-of-way on the street. The seasoned veteran has no challengers most of the time. Today, that applies to internal struggles too: There comes a time when you take control of your body back from that habit.

Eight of Wands…….. Eight of Wands is talk, quickly, many things, a list, plurals, one thing after the other, more and more and writing or written material. Those are its main uses. The airborne boards arc earthward in the illustration. They look like lines on paper, which is the only excuse for all those communication meanings – and they remind you of a list. Moving quickly … check. Many things … check. And that makes plurals. One after the other … check. More and more … check.

.

Five of Swords…………. Five of Swords is the cocky fellow who takes his half of the road down its middle and honks at you because you are in his way. See that smirk? He defeated his friends in swordplay, and is claiming their swords as his by intimidating them. Five of Swords is a thief and thievery. But it is also outsmarting, getting even or revenge. And don’t forget ‘intimidates.’ Five of Swords often means ‘take advantage’ or being taken advantage of (ripped off). It means cruel and callous. The cocky chip-on-the-shoulder attitude also applies, and brings up rude words that apply to his belligerent attitude.

.

Strength…………. Strength is just the person to put a bully (like Five of Swords) in his place skilfully, without a fuss. She is part of the Rider Waite Tarot theme that a person who is adept spiritually deflects conflict – that they are not intruded upon because they are invisible or ‘under the radar.’ She is petting the predator, and influencing him to like it. She has charmed the opposition. The eternity symbol that is her halo is the one that means a repeating (goes on forever) number in math, like the decimal equivalent of one-third is .333 and on forever. The white robe is obviously about being spiritual, and the flowers for a belt are too.

  1. What fun! Just got done going inside this morning to ground myself and release some worn-out internal fears. Once again the reading resonates for me, amplifying my certainty that all problem-solving is an “inside job.”
