Tarot Readings for You for April 9, 2015 Thursday©

Apr 8, 2015 by

GUIDANCE Today’s spread is amazing! We want out of the box, and then we realize it’s what we wanted that got us into the box. Life is like that sometimes. ‘Be careful what you wish for.’ We explore … really go spelunking … this aspect of biographies. The price of compromise is like a hidden tax. It’s so easy to see in other people: She marries him for his money, to learn that money isn’t everything. He marries her for her looks, to discover looks aren’t important. But it’s not so easy when we look at our own biography. Where did you compromise? – and do you want to … can you … go back to the crossroads and take your untraveled path?

Eight of Swords – Judgment – Nine of Cups

.

LEARN TAROT BY OBSERVING

.

………………………     Hmm, I said, composing this on Easter Sunday, ‘We’ve got death (Eight of Swords), resurrection, (Judgment) and ‘Your wish is granted’ (Nine of Cups). (Yes, I’m a few days ahead.) (Judgment also means realizing and waking up, which enriches our one-sentence readings.) Aside from that, these three Tarot cards – which is rare – don’t have interlocking meanings like any three usually do. (You noticed that.) These three cards make stories, and the stories are about being stuck, getting free, and what you desire being a factor in those two situations.

…………………………..Eight of Swords in Tarot Verbatim™ is the actual death card. It shares with Devil the idea that our attachments that limit us are voluntary: The chains are loose around the Adam and the Eve figure in Devil, and the bindings of Eight of Swords are loose too, and no one’s around. Eight of Swords’ main meanings are limitations, being stuck, being or feeling helpless, being or feeling shut in, ‘can’t’ and being hopeless or stymied, suffocated. It often translates ‘what holds you back.’

Eight of Swords also means a container, literally, and to be shut in, and ‘locked,’ including a safe, or a person locked up. It means paralysis too, whether literal or figurative – and handicapped. Naturally, its death meaning is infrequent – but real. Eight of Swords can translate ‘fatal’ next to a danger or disease card.

Someday I will write a pamphlet on the death theme. I am thinking of a library of Tarot books, one card per book, and some on themes, and then some on the actual practice of Tarot. That’s going to be a school.

…………………………..Judgment is new life, new perspective, realization (eureka, epiphany, ‘get it’), awakening or waking up, getting free of the limitations or the box (literally, here in the picture!) you were in. Judgment is enlightenment and salvation and inspired life-changing moments. This Tarot Verbatim™ card has ancillary (minor) meanings based on details of its illustration: any loud noise (especially a sudden one, like a car horn), a horn player or other musician, an alarm clock going off, surprise, being in or on water, and discovering something factual, something coming to light as in an investigation, for instance. (For instance, Eight of Swords and Judgment could be part of a story about finding something dead in water.)

Judgment – not today though – is a legal card. We won’t go into that here; it is busy doing something else today.

…………………………..Nine of Cups, Your Wish Is Granted, is, like, everybody’s favorite card, and it is a powerful influence for good very often, like Wheel of Fortune is. In fact, when you see those two holding hands in your spread, well, your day (or Querant’s day) has come. Today we poke its flip side, the ‘Be careful what you wish for’ side. Today, in the shadow of Eight of Swords’ limitations, we have to admit that what limits us is a side effect of what we actually want. I think our brains are wired to wall off that realization, somehow. Because oh how we sidestep it! Today Nine of Cups is also a neighbor of Judgment, the new life, new perspective, life-changing realization, and ‘to get out of.’ It also means to go back, so that ‘I want to go back’ is stated too. So Nine of Cups today is about the life we want to have, the life that is about to dawn.

Oh how we long for freedom when the price of what we have chosen kicks in! We hear the click of the lock behind us as we go through a crossroad intersection, and we don’t take notice of it until we are down the road a while. Are we really locked into this course? Sometimes, we can retrace our steps and make another choice to be free of the path we originally embraced. This story is about that moment of realization in our life stories.

 

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

……………………………

Tarot Readings: Death Wishes (Eight of Swords and Nine of Cups)

I want Nine of Cups out of Judgment this box Eight of Swords!

I really really want Nine of Cups there to be life after Judgment death Eight of Swords. Judgment is ‘life after death’; Eight of Swords is death.

I enjoy Nine of Cups saying things that wake Judgment the dead Eight of Swords.

Suddenly Judgment you just want Nine of Cups to die Eight of Swords.

I want Nine of Cups to wake Judgment the dead Eight of Swords.

So grateful Nine of Cups for a near-death Eight of Swords epiphany Judgment.

News Judgment of a death Eight of Swords pleases you Nine of Cups.

Delighted Nine of Cups when you are told Judgment about a shutdown Eight of Swords.

……………………………

Tarot Readings: They Say You Can’t (Eight of Swords and Judgment)

Your wish is granted Nine of Cups when you say Judgment you can’t Eight of Swords.

I’m so glad Nine of Cups you said Judgment I could not do that Eight of Swords.

I am grateful Nine of Cups to you for telling me Judgment I was stuck Eight of Swords.

Thank you Nine of Cups for telling me Judgment ‘You can’t. Eight of Swords

What I want Nine of Cups is to be told Judgment what is holding me back Eight of Swords.

You can’t Eight of Swords change Judgment by just wanting Nine of Cups it.

..……………………………

Tarot Readings: You Get Yourself Free (Judgment and Nine of Cups)

Coming out of Judgment the cocoon Eight of Swords feels so good Nine of Cups!

So glad Nine of Cups I’m not helpless Eight of Swords anymore Judgment means ‘not anymore.’.

So glad Nine of Cups you got out of Judgment the trap Eight of Swords.

When you’re at a dead-end Eight of Swords and it changes Judgment, you are content Nine of Cups.

..……………………………

Tarot Readings: A Victim of Your Wishes (Eight of Swords and Nine of Cups)

A eureka Judgment about how what I want Nine of Cups is limiting Eight of Swords me.

My wish came true Nine of Cups, and now I realize Judgment I’m stuck with it Eight of Swords.

Recovering Judgment from paralysis Eight of Swords is the most I could wish for Nine of Cups.

Now I realize Judgment I really wanted Nine of Cups to be helpless Eight of Swords like that.

I want Nine of Cups to go back Judgment but it’s impossible Eight of Swords.

Then I realized Judgment that what I wanted Nine of Cups so bad would be my denouement Eight of Swords (would be stifling Eight of Swords).

LEARN TAROT BY PICTURES

.

Eight of Swords……….. Eight of Swords is obviously stymied and not doing anything about being confined. Eight of Swords is trapped, frozen in place and paralyzed into inaction. The most general meaning of Eight of Swords is limitations. Eight of Swords is that ‘I can’t’ or ‘You can’t’ that vetoes action. In its illustration, the bindings on the blindfolded woman are very loose, thus self-imposed. She is in a fix, and the distant dwelling above on the steep hill can be a hint that the fix is social or family life. But the artist put it almost out of the picture because Eight of Swords is meant to be very general: any kind of limitation at all. Procrastination fits this Eight of Swords profile too. This card’s helpless feeling makes it the primary card for death.

Besides its social meanings, Eight of Swords has some mechanical ones. It means a container, a lock box (including safes and prisons), and a suggestion to lock something up.

.

Judgment………….Judgment is the moment of new birth, of resurrection from a past life form – the butterfly coming out of the confinement of the cocoon, that life-changing eureka epiphany, that magic moment we drop out of our profile and into something unstructured, the opening of the door to new consciousness. Judgment is leaving death behind for something new, untried, and we hope better. That it is also a legal card is interesting, you think? Judgment emphasizes the moment of realization, the waking up from sleep.

Other, more mundane, meanings for Judgment are: suddenly, change, sudden change, news, go back or come back, and any of the words and phrases that mean to say or to tell.

The loud noise of the horn opens the door for Judgment to mean any loud – especially loud and sudden – noise at all. The horn can apply to that kind of music, or any kind of instrument player. The angel can be literal, or can represent, say, an ‘angel’ whose funding gives a project a new lease on life.

.

Nine of Cups…………Nine of Cups is fat and happy. He ate it all and is safunsified. This is the life of excess, or is being content with life as it is. You could say Nine of Cups is both wanting what you get and getting what you want. The main application is what everybody says about Nine of Cups: Your Wish Is Granted. Lovely when it appears as the first Self card in Celtic Cross. This ‘getting what you want’ can apply to a specific item, specific happening, or to the overall scene of your question.

BE IT NOTED, however, that often Nine of Cups produces ‘I want’ in your sentence. But, nevertheless, that happens when getting it is implied, usually. Other phrases for Nine of Cups are: grateful, Thank you, pleases, delights, and feels so good.

Generally, this is an anchor card because its meaning is so defined and obvious. But today we draw out its more complex shadow side because it’s infected with Eight of Swords’ damper. Today Nine of Cups is ‘Be careful what you wish for.’

    Busy day, but i have a late in comment. This one nailed it for me!

  2. Mary

    Yes. Yes. Yes. I finally have a day out of the box. And I still have to get your CDs out. I’m sorry. It has been crazy busy here, and I have been in the land of roughs and expedites.

    • Mary

      And you are right. I thought I wanted this, and I do, but it’s a treadmill and a box too.

      • I told you about court reporting. You become a genius at People. It’s hard thankless work. You exercise your subconscious muscle through the flow of language. Veddy interestink!
