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 COMBINATIONSis 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!

Eight of Pentacles – King of Wands – Hermit

.

LEARN TAROT BY OBSERVING

………………………    King of Wands and Hermit are opposite types of men. King of Wands is the ablebodied impulsive uninhibited hotheaded and hotblooded wild man and the workingman who keeps at his job. He reminds me of Merle Haggard’s bar scene songs. Hermit is the calm celibate old or older man who is patiently looking for people he can befriend and help – and his job is to be on the road at night looking for those people. King of Wands is action and Hermit is wisdom and patience. The card these two share a bunk with in our spread is Eight of Pentacles, which means work, effort, doing things, and things that keep happening. (Keep in mind that Eight of Pentacles and King of Wands can both be about the building trade – if you have them together, then you look for Three of Pentacles, the contract to build.) Yeah, we got stories today!

………………………..  Eight of Pentacles shows a carpenter at his bench, manfully mass-producing one identical item after the other, sticking to it. If you have ever heard a skilled carpenter hammer, you know about this sticktuitiveness they have. Eight of Pentacles is everything about work, job, labor (even labor politically); and it means effort, consistent action.

It also describes: one after the other; a piece at a time; keeping busy; doing something again and again; all the time every time; a routine a person keeps up; the physical part of any task; being in reflexive mode as you do repetitive motions; blow by blow – and so on.

Watch for it to simply say something happened on the job, or at work is where someone was, in some spreads you do.

………………………..   King of Wands is a natural companion to Eight of Pentacles. Both of them are workingman, working-class, physical and hands-on – the common man or the common touch. King of Wands is a man who is a steady worker, who is employed on purpose.

King of Wands branches out into being a husband or married man, the ‘red head’ – the passionate impulsive uninhibited edgy (even angry, ill-tempered or irritated or irritable or irritating) wild man type. This ‘red head’ stereotype originates in the Middle Ages as the ‘fiery’ person, which they associated with the salamander because they thought salamanders breathed fire – and this misconception gets all over astrology concepts that way! The ‘fiery nature’ inhabits Kind of Wands’ meanings. Proof of that is found in the live salamander at his feet, and the salamander motif tapestry behind his seat.

That ‘temper’ side of King of Wands’ meanings, when aspected by some dangerous cards such as, say, Seven of Swords or Tower, can turn King of Wands into a threat, a bad guy.

[While we’re at it, Queen of Wands is the wife or housewife or domestic engineer (watchful mama) card in Tarot Verbatim™, which has something to do with King of Wands being the main husband or ‘married man’ card. While we’re at it, Queen of Cups is the devoted wife (or even girl friend) who believes in her man, understands him and still likes him, so she is the runner-up ‘wife’ card, which also promotes King of Cups to the runner-up ‘husband’ card. Cups (the suit) are associated with emotion, so that will enter into it in some way when the runners-up appear in your spreads.]

 

………………………..    Hermit Then along comes the wise old man who is calm and patient, everyone’s friend, out at night looking on the road for people who would appreciate dinner and a warm bed. He, as the sincerely religious and spiritual devotee, kind of throws a bucket of ice water on King of Wands’ overheated approach. However, a blend of passion and patience (King of Wands and Hermit) is what it takes to get something done (Eight of Pentacles) sometimes.

Hermit and King of Wands share honesty as a trait. Hermit and Eight of Pentacles share patience and sticking to it as a trait.

Hermit is a physician because of what the illustration shows he is wearing, and is a counselor because the wise old man plus the helpful friend equals the giver of good advice.

Hermit is devoted, is supportive, is one of the caregiver cards (along with Queen of Pentacles, also supportive and devoted – but to family).

His searching expands into watching, overseeing, even surveillance and investigations. He can be the inspector too. He could be inspecting the work (Eight of Pentacles) the workingman (King of Wands) does.

Lastly, remember Hermit is associated with nighttime, with mountains, with snow and hence cold.

………..…………    King of Wands and Hermit    Looking for a husband. My hunt for a hotblooded guy. I see him as a husband. Observe that the husband is the one …. This husband helps out. A devoted husband. THE PASSION OF A DISPASSIONATE FELLOW … for a red-blooded man to not have sex. … to be cool when you’re wild. This normal man is doing without sex [is celibate]. He is old but he is passionate. Impassionate observation of passionate _. I watch as I do _ hotheaded thing _. I go to counseling for my bad temper. Watch … you impulsive thing you. He works with his hands … an honest man.

Passion and patience are such a good blend, but it takes steady effort to keep them blended, doesn’t it? A high-energy worker who knows his stuff and takes his time and gets the job done. It’s as hard for a hotblooded man to be celibate (go without sex) as it is for a patient reserved person to get up on stage and do something outrageous. We are trying to get ourselves in the middle most of the time, and, yes, it’s a steady effort.

Eight of Pentacles……….. Eight of Pentacles Here’s the carpenter at his work bench hammering away steadily, producing identical pieces someone else will put together. He is in reflexive mode, attention on the physical doing of his task. He is employed; he is a worker. This is the card for anything at all to do with job, work, labor, workplace, work site, labor parties, etc.

Eight of Pentacles is about habitual repetitive movements or actions – routines and habits, any of them. So it can also be about the reflexive mode, that trance state we get into when we mindlessly do something like buttoning our clothes or walking up stairs. This card can even represent the ‘mindfulness’ of meditation practices. It can also indicate a habit – good or bad one.

.

King of Wands…………. King of Wands is a natural companion to Eight of Pentacles. Both of them are workingman, working-class, physical and hands-on – the common man or the common touch. King of Wands is a man who is a steady worker, who is employed on purpose.

This is the main ‘husband’ and ‘married man’ card in Tarot Verbatim, as Queen of Wands is the main wife card.

He also represents having the common touch, being working-class, being a guy, being natural and normal in a plain and uninhibited way. Yeah, he has his wild moments too – a party boy. And, yeah, this guy can be angry, irritated, edgy, boisterous, surly or bad-tempered. Badly aspected (in bad company), he can be brutish, even brutal. He can be a ‘bad boy’ in romance inquiries.

.

Hermit …………. Hermit is you in your wise, kind, understanding, forgiving, helping-out-your-fellowman mode. Hermit is an old soul, as they say; a person whose self-control and patience are mostly natural traits, who is inclined to be heavily spiritual. One of those kind warm personalities who were born that way. Everybody’s friend, the supportive caregiver, whose calm and patience exude good advice without a word being said.

Hermit is associated with religion as well as spirituality because, of course, he is a monk – a service monk at that. (That means he doesn’t just contemplate; he gets up and does something useful to others.) His garb in the drawing indicates he is a doctor, and the fact he is peripatetic (fancy word for walking, ha-ha) makes Hermit represent ambulance personnel, paramedics, and first aid.

Hermit is when you go to someone else (or, of course, someone else comes to you). That would be making the first move … even blinking first, you know?

Tarot Verbatim™ expands the searching Hermit is doing to watching, looking for, to overseeing and even surveillance. So he can be an investigator or a security guard, given the right setting – or an inspector.

Because he is out at night in the snow (cold weather), in the mountains, any of these elements of the illustration may be what your spread uses.

  1. Appreciating the side notes on companion cards, which caught my attention today because I had for myself pulled the Queen of Cups. Hermit weather attribute also insightful as we woke to 12-below temps. Sending warm, grateful greetings!

    • Glad you mentioned that. I will be doing more of it, as more and more people are using the archives for research into meanings of combinations of cards. Those side notes will be part of the training program I am headed into: Lots of work there.
      Hermit means to search, and it is useful when someone wants to know geographical location.
