Tarot Readings for You for March 25, 2015 Wednesday©

Mar 24, 2015 by

GUIDANCE     How boring would I be if I never had difficulties?, I ask myself today. The glories of the straight and narrow are not apparent until you aren’t paying the tolls on the roads to hell anymore. The jobs that pay well are difficult ones (one way or another). Achievements that are hard-won are the worthwhile ones. Business people know that the good money is in a product that takes a pain away. Everywhere you turn, making the best of the worst is a good investment.


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 – Ace of Pentacles – Devil



………………………       ‘Strange bedfellows,’ I said when I put these three down for our session today. Chariot and Ace of Pentacles are both stellar success. Devil is the problem, the trouble, the worst of it … and worse. Today is Devil lite day. Devil, in this company is being as good as a Devil can. Chariot is succeeding in spite of obstacles, and Devil is … yeah … an obstacle. Ace of Pentacles plays into this as the reward, as the straight-and-narrow, and as money.

………………………..     Chariot decides and acts upon the decision. He has the will to accomplish his purpose however that may be done. He is the one responsible for the success of the project, and he does succeed. A strategist, he uses every element of the equation to arrive at its solution. Inventive and even ruthless is Chariot: He delivers. I think of him as the Marines, which is close to what they were.

The picture is very stylized. You have to know charioteers were the war heroes of their day, the strategists. You should notice there are no reins and those are not ponies; they are magic sphinxes, and he controls their direction with his magic wands. (Definition of magic is ‘willpower.’) You should know sphinxes (mythical creatures, of course) have those reversed colors because some will turn only right, some will turn only left, and that’s it for sphinxes: They don’t go straight.

Our hero has hitched them to his wagon so that they are in one another’s way, and thus must tend to go forward by default. He is the strategist, right?

This picture depicts the idea of using factors that prevent you from getting there to get there, to achieve your purpose (or to deliver on the project you were hired to direct) despite all – and to ‘tack against the wind,’ – to use headwinds to get ahead. Today, we have a card that represents those adverse factors that are fodder for Chariot’s mileage. Devil is the adverse factors, is adversity, and is the adversary. To be a hero, you need an enemy, most of the time.

………………………..   Ace of Pentacles is a stylized Rider Waite Tarot card too: It pictures the ‘Right-hand Path’ of esoteric thought. The Right-hand Path is what Western civilization calls ‘the straight and narrow’ or ‘going straight.’ It depicts the idea that doing right is profitable. It is about the rewards of living honorably, in other words, and that can be applied to religious thought if the context is there to apply it. Today we have Chariot to bring out a vehicle on a road; we have Devil to bring out ‘right and wrong’ or ‘the best and the worst’; we have the idea that what is difficult (Devil) pays well (Ace of Pentacles). So Ace of Pentacles is success, is arriving at your goal – very similar to Chariot, except Chariot emphasizes what it takes to get there, while Ace of Pentacles emphasizes the reward of arriving.

You see, literally, the straight and narrow, and it’s gold to match the handful of gold coins held aloft the path. The trellis at the end of the path is victory, and the white lilies in the foreground represent purity.

Ace of Pentacles is about value too. It means things like ‘worth it.’ It can translate valuable, priceless, ‘owe my (whatever) to,’ and so on.

………………………..      Devil in Rider Waite is the medieval concept of the devil – the Horned One, with all sorts of satanic symbols and indicators so there’s no doubt. The human couple that is chained loosely to Devil’s perch look like Adam and Eve in Lovers, and Devil is above and between them in the same way the angel in Lovers overlooks Adam and Eve. The loose chains depict the concept that attachment to evil is voluntary, and you can get free at will. The upside-down torch in Devil’s hand represents ‘wrong use of force,’ or wrong use of life force. You could say it represents getting burned, or even hell-fire. The grapes on the tail of the human female could be picked up if your theme is an alcohol habit – because addiction and bad habits are Devil’s specialty. The horns of Devil are actually from a monster that became extinct in its large form, referred to as leviathan, which is a name Devil is called (I think) in the Bible. Archaeologists unearthed that monster.

Now, note our two cards here, Ace of Pentacles and Devil, both have alter-ego cards. Devil is paired with Lovers, as I explained. Ace of Pentacles (Right-hand Path) is paired with Moon (Left-hand Path). Both of them represent traditional concepts of good and evil. So this is a very moral and religious spread we have here. It would be more moral and religious if the third card in the spread were not so focused in real-world getting-things-done mode. Even so, we have the sinner (Devil) deciding (Chariot) to go straight (Ace of Pentacles). Put Ace of Cups in the place of Chariot, and you would have sermons. (You can research all these meanings by typing the two cards into a Google search bar.)

Also note that Ace of Pentacles is about possessing (my, mine, etc. – possessive pronouns) and Devil is attachment – another parallel these cards have in Rider Waite.

Difficulties are assets: That’s our main thought today. Get up (Quitcherbitchin’ as Ann Landers famously would say.) and grab hold of the bad situation with a strategy that you act upon until you’re done – until you have accomplished your purpose. We say the way to get something done is to do it right (to do right). We say that, to be a hero, an enemy or adversary comes in handy. To be an overcomer, you need something to overcome, right? We say willpower overcomes vices. We say it’s your problems and troubles that have made you what you are today regarding your successes. And we suggest this is a continuing process you’ve got in your hands right now.


Now we show where each of the phrases in each of the sentences comes from:

Chariot……….. Chariot gets ‘er done. He’s got an assignment or a purpose he has decided to accomplish, and he accomplishes it come hell or high water. This card too is on the esoteric side, but this time the human is in control of the spiritual force, is positioned above and between the mythic magical sphinxes. Chariot is about having self-control and hence being in control of events: ambition. (Strength also depicts this concept in a spiritual way.) Chariot’s focus is strategy, particularly strategic action that results in success, because Chariot’s chief meaning is success, accomplishment, and being the responsible one – the project manager.

Chariot’s picture, which I explained earlier in this presentation, represents strategy: The hero here has hitched the sphinxes (who travel only in a right turn or left turn) so they oppose one another’s directions, and are forced to go straight by default, so he can control them with his willpower, represented by his magic wands in place of reins. Success is when you get the forces that oppose you to oppose one another instead. Watch politicians apply this principle beautifully.


Ace of Pentacles…………. Ace of Pentacles is about success, money, reward, being right, being on the right track or right path, and also being on the road, or the road itself. It’s a leading card for money, and it means price, to owe, to pay, asset, to own or ownership itself (as in stockholders even), to hold or to have in hand, or to have something physically in your hands. It means value and valuable, even priceless. IT EVEN MEANS ‘YES,’ especially if you have a ‘yes or no’ question on the table. (NOTE: As the first Self card in a Celtic Cross spread, it says ‘yes’ so strongly that, if the rest of the spread contradicts that, you should quit Tarot for the day, or at least pick up that spread as valueless.) Along with ‘success,’ Ace of Pentacles means winning, especially when money is involved. Put it next to Wheel of Fortune, and you have won the lottery, since Wheel of Fortune is gambling and is also a lucky event.


Devil…………. Devil today is on its very best behavior as a foil to two cards that mean success, one of which also is about the right path, being right, being straight (Ace of Pentacles of course). Today Devil is the obstacle, the adversity, the problem to be overcome. Always remember Devil’s fairly innocuous meanings, such as attachment, physical, sex act, difficulty-trouble-problem, and wrong. Devil can be a very heavy hideous card in other company. Devil can be taken literally as demonic activity or presence; it can be cancer or other awful illness; it can be the worst kind of insanity; it is the lead card for brutality and oppression; and it brings out the worst in nearby cards too, like Moon does. In other decks, this may not be so. In Rider Waite, Devil is obviously the medieval Christian horns-and-tail brutal devouring spirit. In the Marseilles deck, I read, Devil is more the Norse concept of the mischievous one, Loki, a prankster.
