Tarot Readings for You for January 15, 2015 Thursday©

Jan 14, 2015 by

GUIDANCE      We are looking at boundaries for things sane and things not-so-sane, and looking at them from more than one perspective. For one thing, you can be too sane in a crazed world. Craziness is like seasoning in your stew: a little is delicious. For another, we suggest you may as well accept the miasmas of your culture: They are here to stay. And yes, you too can go off the deep end and wake up wondering. There’s such a thing as being neither sober nor drunk, you know? Soo, we decide, it’s a mix, and we shall differentiate that boundary so there’s as little fuss as possible most of the time.

.

Are YOU here for the first time? Come in!

People love this place! Our site is divided into four sections: Guidance, Tarot Readings, Learn Tarot by Observation, and Learn Tarot by Pictures.
If you just want your daily look ahead, Guidance and Tarot Readings are all you need. ‘Guidance’ (above) is a summary of what the cards are telling visitors to be aware of this day.

‘Group Tarot Cards Reading’ (just below this) is the actual word-for-word messages from the pictures of the three cards you see – to everyone. These readings are about you and the people around you.  They are about today and the days around it. So, go ahead and pick the sentences you feel are yours and decide whether to encourage or reject them for yourself.

Tarot Readings: S.N.A.F.U. (Seven of Cups and Justice)

All kinds of things infest an open mind on a normal day.

You’re supposed to just muddle along.

Don’t worry, the messes will straighten themselves out without you.

We assume the damnedest things are normal.

Actually there are all sorts of sensible things in your subconscious.

..…..

Tarot Readings: The World Is Crazy, So What? (Seven of Cups and Fool)

It’s only when things go right that I am shocked.

It’s not up to me to straighten out this mess.

I didn’t know I was the straight one in a messed-up place.

Neither rational nor irrational.

So what if the world is crazy, it’s okay.

Don’t let being sane in an insane world bother you.

You aren’t supposed to be here when I’m drunk and disorderly.

I had no idea the courts could be that out of control.

We assume we are right until all hell breaks loose.

..…..

Tarot Readings: Miscellaneous

Lots of unexplored legal issues.

You weren’t really sober or drunk.

Really, you should turn your subconscious loose.

..…..

Tarot Readings: Not in My Right Mind (Fool and Justice)

Wild and crazy, not in my right mind.

Just blew a perfectly ordinary thing completely out of proportion.

Ignorance of a law wreaks some havoc.

Brain fog is anything but rational.

 

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!

Seven of Cups – Fool – Justice

LEARN TAROT BY OBSERVING

.

……………….……………………     Fool is neither here nor there, is up in the air, is free and not paying attention, and is all about subconscious ‘out there’ realities. To its left is crazy undifferentiated out-of-controlness, Seven of Cups. To its right is sanity, what should be, the usual and ordinary reality. How intriguing. This spread limits these usually very flexible (many meanings) cards to what they have in common, which is what we just named here. We are pretty much juxtaposing these concepts, arranging them however they might fit together. And those ways are intriguing. Come see!

………………………..     Seven of Cups’ illustration can be Sorcerer’s Apprentice or Pandora’s Box: The spirits got loose and are all over the place, uncontrollable, and the good spirit who counterbalances them is not yet let loose. Seven of Cups is about anything that is messy, out of control, in pieces or scattered about (debris after a storm), shocking or amazing, crazy or insane, chaotic or not understood. It means all sorts of things and it means ‘all sorts of things.’

………………………..      Fool is cramped today, pared of many of his potential meanings by its table-mates. Seven of Cups is releasing Fool’s ‘let loose’ and ‘free’ meanings because they have that in common. Fool means to not be, as in to not be there, not be present, because its deeper meaning is living in ‘the Zone,’ being detached, free of constraints and immune to consequences (God protects fools and drunks). So Fool can purely mean ‘not be’ (or any of its synonyms) anything. Justice is in his way today, and is in the way of Seven of Cups too. Justice is all the constraints of ‘should’ and correct or right (whereas Fool is the assumption and/or is mindless, or not paying attention), and Justice is sane and normal, usual and ordinary: very conscious stuff to Fool’s subconscious stuff and ‘free’ stuff. You don’t find Fool being its usual philosophical unfettered self today. Hardly any of that.

..……………..…………     Justice is, well, Justice. Besides all the obvious meanings (court, lawyer, judge, legal proceedings, legally (whatever), police, etc.) it means should or ought, it means ‘supposed to’ and it means sane, rational, sensible, straight, right, okay, normal and usual. It can mean title and entitled too, but not today. You can see how justice is the fence around the other two cards today.

……….…………      Seven of Cups and Fool     Both these cards have a ‘let loose’ feel to them. Fool is letting loose of one’s own internal restrictions and being in the Zone, letting the subconscious rather than the conscious mind pilot the body ship. Seven of Cups is the spirits being released from their restrictions and let loose all over the place. Both Seven of Cups and Fool are ‘out there’ cards – spirits and the subconscious. Seven of Cups means ‘all kinds of things’ and Fool’s mind is open to all of them, because, well, Fool’s mind is wide open. Seven of Cups and Fool say ‘Don’t worry’ (Fool) about the mess (Seven of Cups). They say ‘We assume all sorts of things,’ because Fool does assume. All sorts of things are in your subconscious too. Then there’s the ‘Crazy, so what?’ with Seven of Cups being crazy and Fool, as usual, not to worry. It’s not up to Fool … nothing is … to do anything about the mess (Seven of Cups’ mess) … let it take care of itself. No idea about (Fool) how messy it could get (Seven of Cups). And don’t let the insane world get to you, honey: Fool doesn’t let it get to him or her, and Seven of Cups is the crazy world. Well, you weren’t really drunk: Seven of Cups is drunk (out of control) and Fool isn’t really … isn’t really anything. Lots of (Seven of Cups) unexplored issues (Fool is on a journey paying no attention to where he is going). x..

……….…………     Seven of Cups and Justice    Seven of Cups and Justice are sanity and insanity cohabiting: sober or drunk. All kinds of things (Seven of Cups) infest (Seven of Cups) a normal day (Justice). You are supposed to (Justice) be in a muddle (Seven of Cups). [It’s Fool that supplies the ‘through’ that makes it say ‘muddle through’ in the sentence.] Well, there are all sorts of (Seven of Cups) sensible things (Justice). Then things go right, I am shocked: Seven of Cups is both the ‘things’ and the ‘shocked’ and Justice is ‘going right.’ See how cards can split a sentence? Justice means ‘okay’ and normal, so it’s okay that the world has gone to hell and is crazy (Seven of Cups). Being sane (Justice) in an insane world (Seven of Cups). The courts (Justice) are out of control, too (Seven of Cups). And we are right (Justice) right up to the time all hell breaks loose (Seven of Cups). In my right mind (Justice), I am wild and crazy (Seven of Cups). Blowing out of proportion (Seven of Cups) something that was perfectly ordinary and normal and okay. A law (Justice) wreaks havoc (Seven of Cups). And there are lots of, or all sorts of (Seven of Cups) legal (Justice) …. Fool and Justice are uncomfortable bedfellows: They need another card in the bed to interpret. ‘Not in my right mind’ is their moniker. Fool is not in. Justice is the right, sober, sane, straight, etc. mind (or anything else). It’s not up to be to straighten it out: It’s not up to Fool … it never is … and Justice says ‘straighten out.’ I didn’t know (Fool) I was the straight one (You could say ‘the straight man’ here if it fit.) You’re supposed to (Justice) just go along with it (Fool). We assume (Fool) we are right (Justice). Don’t let it bother you (Fool) that you are sane and sensible (Justice). x..

We are taking a look at what passes for normal and ordinary, taking a peek under its straight cover and finding some odd pieces here and there. We get used to things and assume they make sense and are in order, when, well, they are very messy. What we thought made sense turns into gibberish under our magnifying glass. The world is crazy, but so what? – and how’s it feel to be the sane one at the scene of chaos? On the other hand, our concept of ‘the way things are or should be’ has shut us out of some adventures, and we invite ourselves to let our minds skip out of the boundaries of sane constraints … and get a little mental workout.

Seven of Cups…….. Seven of Cups is all about the story of the bad spirits in the box or the bottle getting loose, and they all escaped, trapping the good spirit that counterbalanced their effect – and then the good spirit is set free. So Seven of Cups is about chaos, miasma, disorder, things scattered and unsorted; and it is about shock and awe at an out-of-control situation. In the cloud in the illustration, the veiled cup is the good spirit, still undercover.

.

Fool …………. Fool is skipping out, setting out on a trip without a plan and without provisions, trusting all will be well as he heads for a cliff with his pet. Fool is about living in the Zone, having an ‘out there’ mentality about ‘down here.’ Fool represents the subconscious or superconscious very often. This is a young lighthearted card as we assume (and yes he stands for assuming and being oblivious to facts) his faith is rewarded, and all is well.

.

Justice .………… Justice is straight, right, correct, legal, sensible, normal, sane and okay. The rational mind infests Justice. It even often translates ‘should’ and ‘ought’ and ‘supposed to.’ It sometimes means ‘usual’ as Hierophant does as well. Justice embraces legalities of all flavors: besides the obvious judge, lawyer, regulator, law, trial, legal proceedings – and ‘legal’ or ‘legally’ as an adjective to, say ‘married’ – it means fairness, and ‘entitled’ as well as ‘title’ or ‘license.’ Sometimes that sword in Justice’s hand translates ‘enforce’ or ‘enforcement.’ Justice is also ‘deserve’ and getting what is deserved as well.

Tarot Readings for You for September 21, 2014 Sunday(c)

Sep 20, 2014 by

Guidance     Life isn’t fair and doesn’t make sense, just like us. Your subconscious is writing you a letter you don’t read to the effect that the tactics that work in an upsidedown world are upsidedown tactics. You get the message in bits and pieces, so just leave the door to your rational mind ajar. Your receiver gets static because it’s a random environment you are inhabiting. So turn your wild imagination loose and be very very effective in a mad mad world. Whatever you do, don’t look back; that’s where they ask you to apologize, you know.

Tarot Readings: Subconscious Drops a Line (Fool and Six of Pentacles)

You get it in bits and pieces, just leave the door to your mind ajar.

My subconscious gives me confusing input.

Listen, it’s a random world, and that’s fair enough.

Your receiver is getting some static; just ignore it.

I zone out into never-land, and it’s transmissible (contagious).

When I turned my wild imagination very very loose, I made money.

Let yourself be, and take it as it comes – whatever comes, hell with it.

I catch a lot of flak and it’s not really mine but that’s okay.

Temporary insanity is justified.

Paying attention to everything indiscriminately is paying attention to nothing.

In a court of law, any bizarre thing at all is dished out.

No matter what, you get your fair share of the bullshit.

You get only as many surprises as you deserve.

LEARN TAROT BY OBSERVING

.………………….…………………...   Well well, what have we here? – this is a fun one. Seven of Cups is losing control, things are not making sense, and randomness. Fool says ‘whatever’ about everything and is on his way out of there without looking. Six of Pentacles is receiving, getting what you deserve, being fair, input, and returning the favor in kind. Obviously our main story is that it’s a comedian’s world, so don’t be the straight man.

………………………..    Fool’s ‘subconscious’ and ‘let loose’ and ‘what the heck?’ meanings are encouraged by

………………………..   Seven of Cups’ concept of randomness, not making sense, and out of control – both of which are

…………..………….    .reinforced by Six of Pentacles’ exchange, getting what is deserved, ‘receive’ and ‘input’ meanings.

……….…………..     Seven of Cups and Fool Seven of Cups and Fool are quite the pair. Both are unbridled, devil-may-care in tone. Things are out of control over at Seven of Cups, and Fool doesn’t care, he’s only passin’ through anyway. Seven of Cups brings out Fool’s “Oh well, what the hell” attitude – this time about everything falling apart. Fool says “I won’t be here when the hurricane hits.”

………..…………..    Seven of Cups and Six of Pentacles   Seven of Cups and Six of Pentacles immediately suggest getting what’s coming to you for the crazy thing you did, and treating them as irrationally as they treated you. Seven of Cups and Six of Pentacles are quite the pair as well.

……..……………   Fool and Six of Pentacles   Fool and Six of Pentacles are not taking how they are being treated personally, not even paying attention to input, and not caring about the payments. They say “Justice? – what justice?” too.

When you are surrounded by clowns and being corralled into the corner by your good manners and good sense, it’s time to step out of your good manners and your good sense and be a fellow clown without batting a single eyelash. Stepping out of the script works if you get the timing right. I remember a story about a put-upon mother of teenagers who abruptly started acting just like them … didn’t feel like cooking their dinner for a long time, didn’t give them money, and didn’t comment on it at all, just played their role so they would have to play a grownup one.

Seven of Cups  ……… The mischievous spirits are loose and running amok. You (or someone, or the situation) are out of control. Things have fallen apart, we are in shock. Parts and pieces are scattered about like debris. Things just don’t make sense, and are bizarre. The cloud of dust raised by the storm that shattered our orderly dwelling.

.

Fool  …………. is being liberated from physical reality, not being present, being free and a free spirit – being both oblivious and optimistic. That’s why it can show up as a young person. Fool’s core meaning is the subconscious. He goes on a land journey in a summer frock with no provisions to speak of, with his pet. Fool is faith. Fool is not looking where you’re going: See that cliff?

Six of Pentacles ………. is outvoted in today’s spread, like the one sober person in a crowd. It’s ‘receiving’ meanings are emphasized because of its zany spread-mates today. Six of Pentacles is an exchange, and ordinarily means a fair exchange, justice, making payments and getting a paycheck. Today it is receiving static, and, yes, getting what is deserved.

Our Daily Spread for April 14, 2011

Apr 14, 2011 by

Rider_Waite_Tarot_Spread

Love is blind and it gets you behind the 8-ball, gets you rattled

Ace of Cups
Seven of Cups, Fool, Seven of Wands

Things got out of control and you didn’t notice.  Now True Love is upon you!
Things got out of control while he wasn’t looking, and now he is faced with being in love!
Ignores the mess until faced with it having to be clean.
Assumes there’s some mixup and defends himself that no harm was done.
No idea things get out of control when you insist on the easy way.

Cooperates under pressure as if things weren’t totally out of control.
Due to circumstances beyond my knowledge and control, I am forced to be agreeable.
Forced to cooperate before you realize you aren’t in control anymore.
Love is blind and it gets you behind the 8-ball, gets you rattled.
Oh, you just let things get out of control and now you have to make nice.

First card is Seven of Cups, ‘losing it,’ the Pandora’s Box and/or the Sorcerer’s Apprentice stories:  Things are all over the place, are a mess, and you do not have a grip on them.  Then we have Fool, who didn’t notice, who wasn’t looking, who ignored and assumed and had no idea.  Then as the Seven of Wands we are confronted, something is ‘upon us’ and we are faced with being under pressure for insisting like that.  Lastly is the Ace of Cups, the lovely influence that heals and removes whatever harm the preceding cards have cooked up.

Seven of Cups and Seven of Wands are being confronted.  Fool and Ace of Cups are ‘going with the flow.’

Advice is that when you let things slide, you are going to have to jump to attention to make them okay.  Like, oops, I turned on the wrong burner and the plastic handle may never be the same; I have to run and fix this.

Meanings and Illustrations:

Seven of Cups: Things fall apart, you are ‘losing it,’ the Pandora’s Box and/or the Sorcerer’s Apprentice stories:  Things are all over the place, are a mess, and you do not have a grip on them.  In Rider Waite Tarot, this idea is illustrated by a black figure who is confronted by unrelated objects in a cloud.

Fool: Person who doesn’t or didn’t notice, who wasn’t looking, who ignored and assumed and had no idea. He is blind to environment, he feels so good,  Here it is because he is in love.  Rider Waite Tarot shows him happily steeping into the void with his pet friend, in one more step.

Seven of Wands: As the Seven of Wands we are confronted, something is ‘upon us’ and we are faced with being under pressure for insisting like that. Now you have to …  He is pictured as defending himself, on such short notice his shoes don’t match, against his encroaching neighbors who have come against him with force and surprise.

Ace of Cups: Here is the lovely influence that heals and removes whatever harm the preceding cards have cooked up.  Symbols of the presence of God (The dove of the Holy Spirit and the wafer of communion) infuse the five flows of the human senses, or the five bodily fluids (as the Middle Ages reckoned that).

It is not inappropriate to take ‘time out’ from romance


Two of Swords
Four of Swords, Page of Cups, Six of Cups

Foolish to not respond; there wouldn’t be a romance.
He feels silly when he is unresponsive, when he is not giving her some gift or romantic attention.
It is not inappropriate to take ‘time out’ from romance.
Shall I have a love experience, or shall I do nothing and not have one?
Are the children going to keep us from sleeping?

Will this romance keep me from my rest?
Should I wait to have children, or not?
It seems I have nothing to do if I am not in love.
Those old fashioned ways:  Are they still around, or not?
Shall I remain a kid or not?

They seem to be good children, they don’t do things they shouldn’t do.
Is there no rest when you have kids?
Kids just don’t sleep, do they?
There is no question, you are still in love.
What if you still can’t have kids?

Two of these Rider Waite Tarot cards mean inaction: the Four of Swords which means to not participate, refrain from action, lay around doing nothing, and even meditation; and the Two of Swords, which means no way, you can’t, stop that, etc.  In between these are the Page of Cups, who is about silly, foolish, inappropriate, a question (or instruction to the reader to put this material into question form).  He also means things like ‘it seems.’  The card that establishes a theme among these four is the Six of Cups, which has two main divisions:  One is romance – as in sweet old fashioned love where little guy gives little girl posies; and the other is children.  Six of Cups is a soft, sweet, mellow influence.

Advice seems to be nothing is happening if you are not in love, but if you make children you will not get any sleep.  Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

Meanings and Illustrations:

Four of Swords: It’s when you are dormant, when you ‘time out,’ when you give it a rest or go beddie-bye.  Illustration shows the apprentice knight doing his vision quest in a cathedral lying on the coffin of some culture hero entombed there.

Page of Cups: This ridiculous figure dressed outlandishly with a fish in a cup and a goofy expression means silly, foolish, inappropriate, a question (or instruction to the reader to put this material into question form).

Six of Cups: This lovely Rider Waite Tarot card has two main divisions:  One is romance – as in sweet old fashioned love where little guy gives little girl posies; and the other is children.  Six of Cups is a soft, sweet, mellow influence.

Two of Swords: NO WAY, it says.  Can’t do that.  The buck … and everything else … stops here.  Most any meaning will involve ‘no’ or some other negating word.  The picture shows a balance in stasis: The lady’s arms are crossed and she holds two heavy swords, so she is frozen in that position.

Our Daily Spread for Mar. 18, 2011

Mar 18, 2011 by

Rider_Waite_Tarot_Spread

There’s earth-plane realities that you know, and foo-foo things that you assume

Seven of Cups
Fool, Page of Pentacles, Queen of Wands

Family Life and Romance Perspective:
Thinking of how much he doesn’t know about his wife.
He thinks of this woman as his wife, never mind the other miasmas.
He knows what a mess he is, his wife/mother doesn’t even know him.
He doesn’t even have a wife/woman, he is confused about his identity.
Never mind all the other stuff, he knows his woman is sensible.

He speculates, that’s all, about why he isn’t at home with his wife.
Things fell apart and he doesn’t know why he isn’t home with his wife.
His wife/mother has no idea how out-of-control his life is.
He had no idea how insane his sensible wife/mother was.
The situation is shocking that he doesn’t know who his mother is.
He knows ‘Don’t even think about scrambling mama’s head.’

Business Perspective:
All the company knows is, things are out of control, so a sensible manager is in place now.
May as well not even think of all the messes the manager has set in order.
You can look but there won’t be any disorder in her record.
She, the manager, is in the real world; they have all sorts of assumptions and theories.
She knows how to manage mixed-up young people.

Personal Perspective:
She is very sensible in a very crazy way: Don’t even think about this!
She is a sensible person; she had no idea things get this crazy.
I can assume all sorts of things but know down-to-earth ones.
Sees things that aren’t there, imagines things, but he knows a down-to-earth woman.
There’s earth-plane realities that you know, and foo-foo things that you assume.
You know how to hold things together, you don’t know when or how they fall apart/’go boom.’
Her perspective is pragmatic on fanciful theories.

Well, well, what is the Queen of Wands, the very straight hands-on pragmatic manager of hearth and commerce, doing here? She stands for orderly, she stands for pragmatic, practical and down to earth – for the earth-plane, even … and is in the company of the very theoretical Fool who assumes and ignores, and the insane out-of-control foo-foo very miscellaneous totally unfocused and disorderly Seven of Cups. And right in the middle is someone (a young person, like the Fool) thinking and viewing this.

Advice? It amounts to “Look at this in a sensible way; your world has gone crazy.” Contrast is the order of the day in this Rider Waite spread. Even the business advice has to be about straightening out a dizzy situation. (Of course everyone’s world has gone crazy; it’s a presidential edict, isn’t it?)

Meanings and Illustrations:

Fool: “What, me worry?” This is the person who causes wrecks but is never in them, a blithe assumer of happy foo-foo theories that he blunders through life blindfolded with, and has a great time. He goes so well with the Seven of Cups; that is where he comes from. The illustration shows a young person running away from home provision-less, accompanied by his pet, about to stride off a cliff on a sunny day with great faith in the good life. (He is on Facebook. I see him there a lot.)

Page of Pentacles: He is the onlooker here. He thinks, he knows, he sees. ‘His identity’ is one of the phrases the Page of Pentacles brings up today as well. He is illustrated as a thoughtful young person.

Queen of Wands: She has no toys. She runs the place, whether it be domestic or commercial or both. She knows what is going on and doesn’t let it. Hers is an orderly sensible pragmatic tidy world, a tight ship. Illustration shows an upright lady with a schoolmarm expression and a big stick.

Seven of Cups: Well, here is the mess for the lady to work on. Seven of Cups is the sorcerer’s apprentice story of things out of control, lots of unrelated miscellaneous pieces that won’t be put back together … except by the Queen of Wands and her type. Illustration shows fragments of unrelated things in cups, planted in a heavy cloud.

She can do these things because she never feels the pressure

World
Magician, Eight of Pentacles, Nine of Wands

Business Perspective:
He is under pressure to get the work done; she has nothing to do with it.
The work she does, she is never under pressure.
She keeps doing the job others are nervous about doing: She is Teflon.
She is unaffected by the tension in the workplace, just does the job.

He was injured doing this guard job to keep the women safe.
A guy can get wounded on this job; girls aren’t allowed to do it.
He stays on the dangerous job he does because of gorgeous women.
Women wouldn’t have him unless he did this dangerous work.

Other Perspective:
She isn’t scared of people who do that kind of thing.
She keeps putting herself in danger and no one will attack.
She can do these things because she never feels the pressure.
She is the last person you would think would do one scary thing after another.
Guys who do that kind of thing are scared of her.
What these guys do every day is hurt people, but not women.

*Here are three guy-cards in a row to begin, all kinds of easy stories to make of them … but then the World card overlooking them is the spoiler; you gotta work her into the narrative. So she is the focal point. World refers to being ‘a master of both worlds,’ which means you are so spiritual the monsters fear you. It boils down to a woman who is immune, insulated, Teflon – that sort of thing, or to that state of being for anything. Often ‘she is not affected by’ is the language.

*The Rider Waite Tarot card that means fear and apprehension is next to her – which calls for the language of contrast. *Then the first two cards are a man doing the work, or doing something regularly. Those are the pieces to the puzzle of today’s message.

Advice is that just because there is something scary or dangerous, you don’t have to be scared; you can be above it all or immune to the risk in some way. It suggests this is the case.

Meanings and Illustrations:

Magician: He, the man, does. ‘Work’ is next to him, so he does the work. His illustration shows him at work with the tools of his trade, bringing something about. The next card also shows a man working with the tools of his trade.

Eight of Pentacles: Work. Workman. He is doing work, or is regularly doing something. Illustration shows the carpenter making one identical product after another at his bench.

Nine of Wands: He has a dangerous job; he was injured on guard duty, and is still hanging in there. Of course he has some fear; of course he is nervous and apprehensive. See the head injury and the way he is looking over his shoulder?

World: I will just copy what I said above, because I said it all, at least as far as today’s message is concerned. World refers to being ‘a master of both worlds,’ which means you are so spiritual the monsters fear you. It boils down to a woman who is immune, insulated, Teflon – that sort of thing, or to that state of being for anything. Often ‘she is not affected by’ is the language.
