Tarot Readings for You for August 20, 2015 Thursday©

GUIDANCE    When a bad guy goes out of his way to do you a favor, you figure he’s a good guy. You know who you can ask a shady favor of, don’t you? – and I hope you have one of those devious butt-kickers in your arsenal of friends. With a little help from another kind of friend, you can beat what you’re facing. A tough guy who tenderly loves you. Consider taking advantage of that offer you can’t refuse. You gotta wonder when a bastard like him is being so polite to you. Today we point out that the Bad Guy-Good Guy label is relative.

Knight of Cups – Seven of Pentacles – Five of Swords

.

LEARN TAROT BY OBSERVING and

                LEARN TAROT BY PICTURES

……….…….…...……..…….. All the pictures on our cards today are men. The first thing a person who is familiar with the main meanings of Tarot notices in these three cards is the contrast between the accommodating good-guy, Mr. Knight of Cups, who is offering a drink to whoever he deals with, and snarly Mr. Five of Cups, who rips off his friends and is a bully. So we have someone who takes advantage, and someone who offers and is friendly. We have a diplomatic gentleman and a predatory thug.

You look to the other card, and there’s a question mark. So we are speculating about a good guy and a bad guy. We also have ‘takes advantage of an offer.’

.

GET A SINGLE CARD’S MEANINGS: TYPE ITS NAME AND ‘TAROT VERBATIM’ INTO GOOGLE.

.Knight of Cups…….. Mr. Knight of Cups doesn’t go to the Knight clubhouse. The other Knights are aggressive, but this fellow extends the cup of friendship; this fellow has the polite approach. This fellow has the wings of Mercury on his helmet – Mercury, the messenger and communication god. The artwork is soft colors and curved lines, in contrast to the other Knight cards. The artwork reminds you of Six of Cups: warm and friendly. He is flexible.

Knight of Cups is the main Boyfriend card. This is the boyfriend who communicates, who makes the first move, who is helpful and outgoing … who listens and talks to you. All this applies to friendships too: Knight of Cups is your accommodating friend, as Hermit also is. Knight of Cups is you being your mellow side.

Five of Swords ……….. Five of Swords is the ‘What’s In It for Me’ side of us – is about ‘what’s mine.’ The spectrum of ‘What’s In It for Me’ starts with a very healthy awareness of what our share is, and reminds us to accept what’s ours without a fuss. This part of the spectrum applies to taking a hard stance, getting tough with someone … ‘laying down the law.’ [Sometimes Five of Swords appears in your spread to tell you that you (or whoever) should assert yourself to get what is rightfully yours.]

The spectrum extends all the way to the fellow we see in the picture, who has seized his friends’ swords after a play-fight as if the fight were some sort of duel. In the days of the sword, losing your sword in a duel lost you your inheritance as a knight – lost you the family estate and its income. So Five of Swords is about greed, bullying, thieving, feeling that you’re a privileged character that others have to do for. Yeah, Five of Swords is the chip on the shoulder.

Five of Swords is a personality trait, maybe even about one thing or one part of life. Some people are unreasonable in just one streak, you know? Five of Swords describes a hard-ass attitude, whether the attitude is justifiable or not.

Five of Swords is the person who’s God’s privileged kid and expects you to thank him for eating your lunch. His caption is ‘Entitlement Gone Malignant,’ and our world is full of these predatory helpy-selfies. [Some religious people are prone to this attitude.] These are the bullies, whether they are physical abusers, social bloodsuckers who expect you to wait on them, financial mooches who occupy others’ couches, or spiritual energy vampires … or any combination of these. Five of Swords comes in the form of the abuser, the mooch, the thief, as well as the thug, the bankster, the con artist, the jerk, and the friend who is using you to take advantage of someone else or get some privilege – like a social climber.

Note that Five of Swords is about a fight, and so is Five of Wands. But Five of Wands can be a struggle, expending energy, and some other things that this Five of Swords doesn’t encounter or touch upon.

……….….. Knight of Cups and Five of Swords  But sometimes the bad-guy is doing you a favor. Sometimes a person who is talented at getting nasty, confronting, laying down the law … when you aren’t … does you a favor and steps in and fights your battle for you. Today’s readings are about this. Knight of Cups is a softie, and he is all about doing a favor; Five of Cups is the Bad Guy. These two cards together can mean Al Capone is defending your house, so he isn’t a Bad Guy in this context.

Note the contrast: Knight of Cups is a softie, shows mercy; Five of Swords is a predatory person, shows no mercy.

Seven of Pentacles…….Seven of Pentacles is wondering, pondering, speculating, doubting, uncertainty, and casting doubt upon something. Seven of Pentacles is you don’t know yet. This is a distinction between Seven of Pentacles and the other ‘don’t know’ Tarot cards in Tarot Verbatim™.

And Seven of Pentacles is one of what I call the ‘duh’ cards. ‘Duh’ is the gear you are in when you don’t get it. Sometimes we don’t get it because we don’t want to, and sometimes it is a blind spot – among other things.

You are leaning on your shovel gazing at your full-grown shrub. You have already done all the work of maintaining it, keeping it well hydrated and well fed and free of bugs. But you don’t know whether it will bear cucumbers because that is one of the plants that requires another like plant of the opposite gender in order for bees to fertilize its blossoms. And you don’t know whether the bees have done their magic. Most of the Tarot books caption Seven of Pentacles as ‘Doubt about the outcome,’ and that’s a good way to think of it.

The key word, the most frequent translate, for Mr. Seven of Pentacles is ‘wondering’ and ‘wonder.’

….. Knight of Cups and Seven of Pentacles is saying ‘Should I ask for help?’ and ‘Should I do a friend a favor?’ and ‘Is (he) really my friend?’ and ‘Why am I a friend?’ These two Tarot cards also express whether to accept something because it’s offered, maybe something you otherwise would not have considered.

Since Knight of Cups is the boyfriend card, Knight of Cups and Seven of Pentacles are wondering about boyfriend, or boyfriend wondering, as well as wondering whether he is a boyfriend. All this applies to ‘friend’ as well as ‘boyfriend.’ Knight of Cups and Seven of Pentacles also ask ‘Should I help?’ and ‘Should I ask for help?’

…… Seven of Pentacles and Five of Swords don’t appear in tandem very often. Wondering whether to be very assertive, whether to take a hard stance, whether to get tough, whether to extend no mercy, whether to be inflexible – whether to get nasty – is one application of these two Tarot cards in Tarot Verbatim™. They say ‘Should I fight?’ or ‘Should I fight it?’ or ‘Can I beat this?’ or even ‘Is it getting the best of me’ – or ‘Something may be getting the best of me.’ Here today, it’s about love getting the best of boyfriend, because of Knight of Cups. Another is ‘Am I being taken advantage of?’ and even ‘Who’s the thief?’

Seven of Pentacles and Five of Swords say something may be getting the best of you, and they are asking yourself some question about some jerk. You can also see ‘I wonder what’s in it for me.’ Wondering whether there are rivals, or whether someone is a rival.

.

.

A tough person can be a good guy, and a nice person can be an s.o.b. Personal style or personality doesn’t always align with fairness-behavior. A person who is talented at conflict – if you aren’t – is a good friend to have. Being a pit bull with ethics is symptomatic of spiritual maturity, we remind ourselves. And some of those warm-fuzzy people are using that approach as bait. So, hey, we pray for discernment, don’t we?
