Tarot Readings for You for July 13, 2015 Monday©

Jul 12, 2015 by

GUIDANCE     We look our best, we project our best image as others do the same for us. It’s a secret treaty we all have. We liken this *effort to look good* to the extra effort we make when we are sick, to look normal. We also compare it to what happens inside us as we are aware of our perceived vices and faults, and yet tell ourselves *that’s not really who I am*. Was it Voltaire or Francois de La Rouchefoucauld who said hypocrisy is the homage vice renders to virtue? We are doing a close-up of self-justification here – ours and theirs.

Nine of Wands – Devil – Page of Pentacles

LEARN TAROT BY OBSERVING and

              LEARN TAROT BY PICTURES

.………..………. .……..…….. Nine of Wands and Page of Pentacles both involve the head, and both are self-conscious in different ways. Nine of Wands has a head wound, and is nervous, edgy and fearful of the return of what hurt him once before. Nine of Wands is concerned about himself, about his safety – with good reason. Page of Pentacles is also concerned – is thinking – about himself. But Page of Pentacles is doing fine and looking good – is consciously projecting a good image.

Nine of Wands and Devil both can mean feeling guilty and/or being fearful, nervous, or almost any bad feeling. They both can mean injury, and both can mean a big problem. Nine of Wands is saying ‘Uh-oh’ sometimes.

Devil of course is any bad attitude or vice or disability, and Devil is flanked on the left by dread and concern for the future (Nine of Wands), and on the right by ‘considering my own part in this’ (Page of Pentacles). Here’s a picture of introspection about ‘it being my fault.’

HOWEVER, in the general application of our spread, Page of Pentacles is ‘thinking’ and ‘thinking about it,’ so the angst and the threat of Nine of Wands, as well as the difficulty of Devil, can be ‘in the head,’ can be about guilt, about defensive attitudes about one’s faults, etc. Notice how Page of Pentacles here today in our spread is a ‘rescue card.’

Mostly our stories are about living with a serious problem, and being concerned about it, having it on our mind.

Nine of Wands…… Nine of Wands’ headline meaning is ‘hanging in there.’ Sometimes, it is advice to do that. Not today, not with Devil next to him! Nine of Wands is the wounded soldier, the border guard still on duty with a head wound, in dread of another skirmish, so it can be about a serious difficulty or a threat or anxiety that is constant. Some Nine of Wands words are: under pressure, tense or tension, harassment, hurt feelings, putting up with it, sweating it out, cornered, trapped, a standoff, worrying, standing up for and defending your position, constant anxiety and tension. You can consider Nine of Wands chronic. Nine of Wands and Devil could be a chronic (serious) ailment, even.

Neither doom nor relief is promised in Nine of Wands. Nine of Wands is usually when there’s nothing in it for you and you are sick of it, but you hang in there. Nine of Wands is being accused (even by yourself) or feeling that way, feeling guilty. Nine of Wands is not getting a divorce and living in some kind of torment, or staying at a job you hate, are used to, and are paid halfway well – staying when your gut is screaming ‘Why?’

Yes, once in a while Nine of Wands is advice to hang in there – but you need a whole different spread for that. Once in a while he is a wounded soldier, a soldier on duty, or a guard.

Devil……..Devil is a very general card, never an anchor, lead, card. It can mean ‘evil’ but isn’t a scary card. It means problem, difficulty, the downside of anything, wrong, disability, bad, awful, guilty, fault, addicted, attached, downside or dark side, undesirable traits of any kind, rude, dislike or hate, sex or sexual, miserable, oppressed, bad mood, feeling bad, pain, hurt, miserable, and words about sickness like illness, ailment and malignant. It can say ‘ugly’ too. It can be derogatory terms for people – like riffraff, thug, lowlife, scum-ball, etc. As a matter of fact, along with Moon, Devil can invite cuss words into your readings. (Both these cards qualify for ‘damned’ literally in their meanings.)

Devil also simply says ‘physical’ and means any sort of physical attachment (clip, clasp, hitch, tie, etc.). It often means obligation or obliged. Its ‘addiction’ meaning extends to any bad habit, so watch for any card that means getting out of, putting it behind, or getting over it to turn Devil into a plus. There are a LOT of these cards, a plethora of them.

Devil’s illustration in Rider Waite is lifted straight out of Middle Ages lore, with added black magic and satanic symbols. Middle Ages had the devil hairy and ugly, with horns and bat wings, and associated with sex. That’s Adam and Eve, of course, loosely chained to the pedestal he squats upon. The torch held upside-down means ‘wrong use of force’ or energy put into hurtful or harmful things.

Page of Pentacles……… Page of Pentacles lets the air out of the tires of its companion cards here today. He is a part-time relief card today. He means thinking, feeling, self, an opinion or a perspective on something. He means ‘mental.’ (That makes ‘mentally disabled’ with Devil.) Page of Pentacles is also the young well-intentioned man who studies (is a student) things, sees things, and who is – identity. So you could say ‘He is guilty’ or ‘He feels guilty’ or even ‘He is looking guilty,’ since Devil means ‘guilty’ and Nine of Wands can be feeling guilty. The presence of Page of Pentacles as the good guy in a three-card spread prevents some of the undesirable interpretations this spread could have.

.

.

Having pressured myself for so long to project this good clean image, I feel dirty by comparison. I feel I’m not who I pretend to be. Yeah, I know everybody is doing the same thing, and that’s what makes us get along as well as we do, and that’s what makes civilization. But I itch to air out my whole self – be who I am – which includes my dark side, you know? The question hanging in the air here is … ‘What if we all did that?’

.

.

.

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

  1. This spread is about the things that ‘get to’ us, too. Its focus is on how we project a glorified version of ourselves, so that we all live in artifice, but we do it as a courtesy to others. However, it is bone deep as we, even in the privacy of our own thinking, reassure ourselves about our real or perceived flaws and faults.

    This photo is one of my favorites. There’s a one-mile twenty-percent-elevation walk I did when I lived on my ranch. I put a rock on fence posts every 100 steps. I used to do the walk in a few seconds over twelve minutes. Those were the days, and that is why I love the depth of this photo.
