Tarot Readings for You for July 10-11, 2017 Monday-Tuesday©Celtic Cross

Jul 9, 2017 by

Today we have that famous question people ask psychics: Why isn’t he calling me? And people ask ‘Is he or she cheating on me?’ Well, a client on a telephone reading asked the first question, and the answer, which I diagrammed for its usefulness, is ‘He is cheating, feels bad about it, and is making a resolution not to do it again.

.

Here is the entire reading – what all these cards say word for word, if you want to read and run: “I’m a Good Guy, a mature man, and I present myself that way.”

I have not been behaving myself, I am not innocent.”

In the future, I am going to do my part in this relationship fair and square, as agreed.”

Under the influence of Lust – it got the best of me – I failed utterly and am devastated.”

I am so ashamed, and no matter how hard it is I WILL get control of this situation … or she will make me behave.”

P. S., it takes hours to get these layouts to reproduce accurately from the word processing program, then to Word Press, then to this site – which is why you see a little irregularity.

Here is a Celtic Cross Layout, Tarot Verbatim™ style:

………………………………………………………………………..……………….. Strength

 Page Pentacles………………     5 Pentacles  10 of Wands  Chariot 

……………………  3 of Pentacles  10 of Swords

…………………..  Page of Wands

 2 of Swords..X… .Hierophant  …. .Devil

…………………..  Emperor

…………………..  Three of Wands …2 of Cups

.

.

.

and here are the names of the positions in Celtic Cross, also modified by Tarot Verbatim™

 

 

 1st Self………… OUTCOME: …………  ……….. 

……………………  Future……………………….   Turning Point

………………….. Situation (Cover)

 Behind…  ….X…………..    Ahead..  Situation/Others

…………………..  Problem (Cross)

…………………..  Foundation……………….  2nd Self

 

So, for you who are unfamiliar with a Celtic Cross layout, here it is.

.

First Sentence, the part of the spread called the cross.

Page of Pentacles is the first Self card.

Page of Wands is the Cover/Situation card.

Emperor is the Cross/Problem card.

Two of Swords is the Past or ‘just Behind’ card. It is paired with

Hierophant as the Future/Just Ahead card.

(F.Y.I., I call the Behind and Ahead cards ‘Expanded Present.’

Three of Wands is the Foundation card. It is paired with

Three of Pentacles as the Future card.

.

Second Sentence, called the tower, and it’s 3 cards straight up.

Two of Cups is the second Self card.

Devil is the Others or Situation card (also called ‘environment.’

Ten of Swords is the Hopes&Fears or Turning Point card.

.

Third Sentence, called Outcome.

And the rest are Outcome, three cards straight across with the middle one aligned with the tower, and sometimes a ‘crown card’ is part of it, as today, which is Strength.

.

.

The way you read a Celtic cross spread is:

.

First Sentence

The first three cards (first Self, Cover and Cross or, as I call it, Situation and Problem.

.

Then what I call the expanded present is behind and ahead of the cover and cross cards, so they are labeled Behind and Ahead by me, or Past and Future.

These are paired cards – read that way.

.

The Foundation and Future cards at the bottom and top of the first sentence’s spread are read paired, usually using future tense because of the future position.

The arms of the cross” is the two pairs we just spoke of (Behind-Ahead, plus Foundation-Future. Sometimes there’s a special meaning to the combination of these four.

.

Second Sentence

You start anew now (at least in Tarot Verbatim). There are three cards going up. They are often not read in sequence, but keeping the name of the position in mind – especially the second Self card, because the two Self cards often indicate something meaningful. I find the top, third, card sticks less to the function of its position, in my practice.

.

Today Ten of Swords fits hopes and fears though. I call this the Turning Point or the Crux card, and that seems to fit a little better. The second card ( Devil, this time) is Others/Environment, and I think of it as a situation card like the second card of the first sentence, usually called Cover.

.

Third Sentence

All these cards, whether you use 3 or 4, are read in any order with no particular individual position name. (You may find, when you first start using three instead of the traditional one card here, that it’s less accurate until you wear a groove in it. Celtic Cross is entrenched in mass consciousness and this is a modification of that.

.

.

.

Question: Why isn’t he calling me?

.

Answer:

First Sentence:

Page of Pentacles, Page of Wands crossed by Emperor – Self, Situation crossed by Problem:

I’m a Good Guy, a mature man, and I present myself that way.”

He is thinking of himself … “I’m a Good Guy.” – Page of Pentacles

I’m a Good Guy – Page of Wands

a mature man, a Grownup – Emperor

and I present myself that way. – Page of Wands

Two of Swords Behind paired with Hierophant Ahead:

I have not been behaving myself, I am not innocent.”

Have not been – Two of Swords

behaving myself. – Hierophant

Three of Wands Foundation paired with Three of Pentacles Future:

In the future, I am going to do my part in this relationship fair and square, as agreed.”

In the future I am going to – Three of Wands

do my part in this relationship fair and square, as we agreed. – Three of Pentacles

.

Second Sentence:

Two of Cups as Second Self card, Devil as Situation/Others/Environment card, Ten of Swords as Hopes and Fears or Turning Point or Crux card.

Under the influence of Lust – it got the best of me – I failed utterly and am devastated.”

Under the influence of – Two of Cups

lust – Devil

(It got the best of me.) Two of Cups

I failed utterly and am devastated. – Ten of Swords

Third Sentence:

I am so ashamed, and no matter how hard it is I WILL get control of this situation … or she will make me behave.”

I am so ashamed – Five of Pentacles

and no matter how difficult that is, – Ten of Wands

I am determined to get control of this situation – Chariot

or she will get control of it and make me behave. – Strength

NOTE that each card in this entire spread is using its traditional core meaning. That is a signature of an accurate Tarot report, and it is a LOT easier to read. This just flows if you are an experienced reader.

Now we look at theme cards in this spread:

What catches your eye immediately as someone who has Tarot experience is the tower part of the spread (the second sentence, the three cards straight up). It has Devil and Ten of Swords, which would suggest some kind of wrongdoing, some moral downfall, some being sorry for a sin.

.

The other card, Two of Cups, in Tarot Verbatim is the main card for personal betrayal, sexual trespass, and taking advantage secretly of another person. So in Tarot Verbatim, this spread screams ‘He had sex and is so sorry he betrayed you. ( Ten of Swords is sorry.) And, by the way: Ten of Swords is also a card of betrayal. Ten of Swords is devastated, laid low.

.

You also notice that the first two cards of your spread both mean a clean-cut good moral guy, Page of Pentacles and Page of Wands.

.

Of course, in the first sentence ‘ I did not behave myself’ or ‘ I did not act in a decent moral way’ is part of the second sentence’s message about ‘ sorry I failed.’

.

In the third sentence, Five of Pentacles is a miserable failure and Ten of Wands is so sorry. ( Ten of Wands is also saying ‘no matter how difficult.’ Tarot does these double meanings.)

.

In the first sentence, the “ I am going to do my part in this relationship” is restated in Chariot, the responsible disciplined person who gets the job done. Strength too prevents misbehavior: Strength and Chariot are about discipline.

.

.

.

And now without the pictures:

What catches your eye immediately as someone who has Tarot experience is the tower part of the spread (the second sentence, the three cards straight up). It has Devil and Ten of Swords, which would suggest some kind of wrongdoing, some moral downfall, some being sorry for a sin.

.

The other card, Two of Cups, in Tarot Verbatim is the main card for personal betrayal, sexual trespass, and taking advantage secretly of another person.

Ten of Swords is devastated, laid low.

.

Of course, in the first sentence ‘I did not behave myself’ or ‘I did not act in a decent moral way’ is part of the second sentence’s message about ‘sorry I failed.’

In the third sentence, Five of Pentacles is a miserable failure and Ten of Wands is so sorry. (Ten of Wands is also saying ‘no matter how difficult. Tarot does these double meanings.)

.

In the first sentence, the “I am going to do my part in this relationship” is restated in Chariot, the responsible disciplined person who gets the job done. Strength too prevents misbehavior: It and Chariot are about discipline.

.

As I promised, this spread is a fine example of interlocking repetition, and it’s very clear to read.
