GUIDANCE      Anyone who is a certain age has experienced the fact that the shadiest people are sometimes the stand-up ones you rely on, and those good people are the troublesome complications of your scene. By this time also we find the bad guys are ofttimes easier to get along with (even more likable). We are all about dealing with the good people and dealing with the bad people today.

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

.

Three of Swords Anyone sees immediately Three of Swords is trouble: heart trouble, suffering, storm, cuts, hurt, general hostility. And that’s exactly what it does mean: Three of Swords is an anchor card (one you look to early to get an idea what your spread means, because it has few, and clear, meanings).

.

Three of Swords is one of the divorce cards (with Tower being the other). It also means to quit or be fired. Divisiveness (lawsuit, schism, competitive, against, rebel, contrarian, etc.) belongs to Three of Swords. So does damage, broken, injury and the surgery for the injury (cutting).

.

Here is your card also for hostility and enmity. It translates: hate, hostile and hostility, enemy, war and warlike, militant, flak, abuse and abusive, and ‘in spite of everything.’ Three of Swords equally expresses both hostility for cause, and hostility as an aberration.

Three of PentaclesThese three people meet as friends to settle up their contract about building the clients’ church per the blueprint. The meeting, the teamwork, the agreement, the deal, the business, the involvement of real estate, and settling up: These are main, headline, meanings for Rider Waite’s Three of Pentacles card.

.

People dealing with one another are in a relationship. ‘Relationship’ is Three of Pentacles’ favorite word. Any kind of relationship, but not hostile unless another card specifies that by modifying Three of Pentacles. When in doubt, apply that word to this card! So Three of Pentacles is also association – is people who are together, or who are together on something. Three of pentacles translates ‘together’ and ‘with’: with him, with her, with them, with me, with-anything. Also phrases like ‘people around you’ or the people you are around. Team: That’s another favorite term for Three of Pentacles.

Hierophant Hierophant is one of the complex cards. A Hierophant is a pope, and that’s the pope in a red robe. (I Googled that, and the pope seldom-to-never wears a red one. But Rider Waite has bright red clothing on the pilgrim in Eight of Cups and on Hanged Man who receives a revelation.) So Hierophant is about religion, religious officials, church and church-related subjects, and even about church people.

.

Hierophant is also the sort of words you associated with church: decent, proper, respectable, normal, clean, behave, good, fair, civilized, should, ought, expected, good reputation, and, by extension, anything ‘in good shape.’ By extension, Hierophant translates ‘okay’ and ‘acceptable’ and ‘to pass’ and its similar forms like a passing grade, and even ‘to pass in society.’ In the same way, it also means: moderate, middle-of-the-road, average. It means established and Establishment too.

.

The ceremony is physical, and Hierophant (along with Page of Wands) can mean the word ‘physical’ or ‘in the real physical world.’ This arises from the distinction that the ceremony is just a physical interaction, whereas the spiritual concept it expresses is understood in a different way, on a different level, by the public and by the in-the-know church people (especially the professional ones, the theologians).

.

Hierophant means commitment, as in loyal associations, being true to someone, etc. This goes along with the ‘behave’ theme.

.

It goes deeper though. The ceremony is just that, a ritual, so Hierophant means doing the expected actions, doing things by rote. And the pope is doing what he and his helpers usually do, so Hierophant means usual, normal, ordinary anythings.

.

Then it goes even deeper: Hierophant is all about ‘face.’ About the way we pretend – and all our institutions pretend – to be clean. The difference between the official, formal reality and real reality. Hierophant is about the treaty ‘most everybody subscribes to that all the official stories are valid true and correct. Hierophant is about conforming, about conformity to the norms of loyalty like pledging allegiance to the flag, shaking hands, and so on. People who violate this unspoken treaty are ostracized whether it be just socially snubbed or put to death for treasons.

.

In the center we have people interacting ( Three of Pentacles). To the left, it’s a hostile interaction ( Three of Swords). To the right, it’s an agreeable one ( Hierophant). The contrast there is the main message of these three cards.

.

Three of Pentacles is relationship. Three of Swords and Three of Pentacles is a hateful or hurtful relationship: a divorce, a disagreement. Hierophant and Three of Pentacles is a committed relationship, a formal agreement between the parties, things as they ought to be.

.

Here are some things Three of Swords and Three of Pentacles could be about – could say in your spreads: A hostile meeting, or meeting someone who’s hostile to you, or even ‘ We have met the enemy.’ Meeting to settle a lawsuit. An agreement that settles a dispute. Gives you a hard time. Dealing with hard times. Making money in hard times. Meeting your ex, or meeting to settle in a court proceeding with your ex – or meeting over quitting or being fired. People who are difficult to deal with, or difficulty dealing with (these) people. The team that deals with the difficult cases. Surgical team, or cardiac team. Against a relationship, or a relationship with someone who’s against it. Hard business to be in. Making money in hard times. Contrarian investing. Competitive relationship. Civilizing a nasty person. Negotiations with a difficult person, and getting flak for associating with him or her. Having an agreeable relationship in spite of the environment, or doing your part in an abusive relationship. People who are in trouble, or people who make trouble. A fair price for something damaged. Do your part in spite of adversity.

.

Here are some things Three of Swords and Hierophant could be about: Hating an Establishment; hating a religion (or religious people). Hard times are good for you. The enemy in the flesh. A division in the church. Divorce is all right. Not being liked because you are so moral, or having a hard time with moral people. Your name after the divorce. Being all right after a stroke. Being against committing. It’s supposed to be difficult. Competitive in the usual way. Something you would expect to be difficult. Hostile people behaving themselves or being good. Benefiting from some contrarian activity. Making a hateful person polite. You usually get flak. Accepting abuse. Making things comfortable in the cruel world. Papers in a lawsuit. A hard time makes a good person. Church people are trouble, or church people help those in trouble. Respectable now that (he or she) is divorced. In spite of everything, is the way it should be.

.

Then when you look at Three of Pentacles and Hierophant, the smoke from Three of Swords clears. Hear the difference in what this pair will contribute to your spreads: The meeting goes fine. The relationship is good. It’s a good deal. Meeting physically in person. Meeting in church. Dealing with righteous people. Going by his name after the proceeding. This team makes people normal. A committed relationship. Business as usual. The usual kind of relationship. People around you behave themselves. Being good in your relationship. Investing goes well. You civilize the person you associate with. People you negotiate with are middle-of-the road, are moderates. The people you usually associate with. Things are as they should be between us; it’s an acceptable relationship. Making decent money. A formal agreement settles it. The church helps people. The price for the real estate is accepted as fair. You are, and they are, doing your part the way you should. Meeting is respectful.

.

Three of Pentacles is also a business and its profit. To the left is hard times for said business; to the right is a nice and easy time.

So which is right for me: being the good citizen, or joining the motley crew?

Tarot Readings for You for October 28, 2013 Monday(c)

Oct 27, 2013 by

Guidance      You come upon a time of things not being as good as they were, and you weather it, you hunker down and dig in to see whether they get better or whether you should move on. Holding onto money until times are better is like staying in an unfulfilling relationship hoping the strain will blow over. I feel things are getting to be the way they should be for us. We agree to leave money in the business until things improve. Now that poor times are over, customers will live up to their contracts.

 

Are YOU here for the first time? Come in!

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 four pictures in the Tarot Readings – the pictures above here.  It explains how these four cards get together in your mind to make the messages.

*Go to Learn Tarot by Pictures.  It is what each of the four 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 – and also the pronouns are more flexible. If it feels like it’s yours, and it says ‘he,’ and you’re a ‘she,’ feel free to adopt it anyway.

 

Hierophant

Three of Pentacles – Six of Swords – Four of Pentacles

 

LEARN TAROT BY OBSERVING

.

These four Tarot folks can make lots of phrases; they get along that well.

Six of Swords and Four of Pentacles each refer to poor times. Six of Swords is saying (1) things are not as bad as they were and (2) moving in a different direction to be more profitable. We are putting something behind us. Four of Pentacles is short of money and holding onto it, budgeting. (He is an outsider in some way: See how he is outside of the town?)

In relationship, Six of Swords and Four of Pentacles also reflect poor times. Six of Swords (1) feels things are improving, are not as bad as they used to be, or (2) is leaving, withdrawing or distancing (him)self. Four of Pentacles is an unfulfilling relationship, but also is holding on. It means deep feelings. It can be clamming up, sulking, withholding attention and affection, too.

Here are the phrases Six of Swords and Four of Pentacles make together. Notice how Six of Swords denotes moving from one place or condition to another, but in such a way it means both ‘anymore’ and ‘from now on.’ Isn’t sulking anymore. Privately feel we are putting those days behind us – or feel things are getting better … or not getting much better. Clammed up and has gotten away from. Hold onto our money until times are better. Now that poor times are over. Not on a tight budget anymore. Is on a tight budget from now on.

Three of Pentacles shows the architect performing his final demonstration with the blueprints to his clients, before the last and final payment.  It is business, the deal, the contract, and living up to the agreement. Hierophant’s illustration expresses the face shown to the public, the official story, the way things are supposed to be – the surface. Some of its typical phrases are: as usual, on the surface, official, appearance, acceptable, respectable, normal, the name or title of something or someone.

Three of Pentacles and Hierophant together say: in the name of the business, business looks healthy, buying (or selling) things at regular price (‘retail’), acting like this is a real relationship, a formal relationship, business as usual, business is okay, formal agreement.

Three of Pentacles and Four of Pentacles each refer both to business and relationships easily. Three of Pentacles is business meeting or deal; Four of Pentacles is being on a budget, not having enough, withholding oneself from.

You can see ‘not doing much business with them’ here, yes? And you can see ‘withholding or clamming up in a relationship’? Other phrases for Three of Pentacles and Hierophant are: unfulfilling relationship, not enough profit in the deal (or in the business), withheld money on the contract, not putting enough money into the business, not enough profit in this business. It is also a deeply felt relationship.

Three of Pentacles and Six of Swordsshow leaving the scene of a business, a business transaction, leaving the business itself, or people avoiding doing business there. It is also leaving a meeting or a relationship. Today, it says “To sell these people, go toward” and ‘Got a good deal on a cruise,” because once in a while that boat going over the water is literal. The business is also relocating, leaving where it is behind.

Six of Swords and Hierophant says ‘Things aren’t the way they usually are anymore.’ Six of Swords is leaving behind things the way they were, and Hierophant is, yes, the way things usually are. Hierophant is the way thing ought to be, so these two Rider Waite Tarot cards are saying ‘leaving because I ought to.’ Hierophant also commonly translates ‘should,’ so these two say ‘We should be moving to another location.’

Four of Pentacles and Hierophant indicate something is not the usual, not as good as it should be, is not the official, or isn’t quite respectable or acceptable. Some phrases for these two Rider Waite Tarot cards in Tarot Verbatim™ are: less formal, because you aren’t getting the money it’s worh (or that you’re worth), it isn’t public yet, isn’t up to par, isn’t that straight or honest, still not as good as it should be, keeping the name, less than the usual price, almost normal.

 

The main story, you can see, is about weathering a bad time that will either get better, or you will leave. In succession, the main meanings of the four cards read: business or relationship, Three of Pentacles; will not be as bad/or leaving it behind, Six of Swords; short of money or profit, or a tight budget, Four of Pentacles; the way it ought to be and/or usually is (Hierophant). As you can see, these are the elements of the story.

.

Three of Pentacles We are doing business; buying and selling;  making contracts, agreements and deals;  meeting.  Three of Pentacles shows the architect performing his final demonstration with the blueprints to his clients, before the last and final payment.  It is business, the deal, and living up to the agreement. It is also a meeting, and refers equally to business, social and romantic relationships.

 

Six of Swords  Hard times and you are getting out of there with some help.  The worst is over but you aren’t home free yet.  Leaving, relocating.  Mother and child are being paddled away from some dismal life circumstance with only the clothes on their backs. Six of Swords means ‘anymore’ and also means ‘from now on,’ which apply very differently.

 

Four of Pentacles  Main meanings of Four of Pentacles are: Not enough, not talking, holding on to what you’ve got; private deeply held feelings. Hugging himself is what makes Four of Pentacles mean ‘deep down feelings,’ and also gives rise to the ‘holding on’ theme. Here are its phrases: Tight budget, not enough profit, insufficient, inadequate.  A deep-down-inside private feeling or conviction.  Illustration is a fellow outside of a town holding onto his gold for dear life, staring ahead.  (See the parallel to the refugees of Six of Swords?)

 

Hierophant is the official face shown to the world, the ceremonial side of a religion, the usual, normal, acceptable end of anything.  Respectability, and not necessarily decency. Hierophant can be Nurse Ratchett or a harmless person.  The pope is pictured with the monks kneeling before him.  I always wonder about those yellow suspenders:  Is that really the uniform?

Our Daily Spread for Mar. 21, 2011

Mar 21, 2011 by

Rider_Waite_Tarot_Spread

It seems, in the real world, I am doing ‘way more than my part

Hierophant
Three of Pentacles, Page of Cups, Ten of Wands

Romantic Perspective from the Responsible Person:
This relationship is really old; when is he/she going to commit?
It seems, in the real world, I am doing ‘way more than my part.
What kind of relationship is this?  I am waiting for it to be official.
This is a long term committed relationship … but a strange one.
How long is it going to be before I have a relationship that is normal?

Romantic Perspective from the Other:
When you’re weird, it’s difficult to be normal in dealing with others.
How difficult is doing my part enough to pass?
This relationship is ‘way too normal for a maverick like me.
I get asked too many questions about doing my proper part in this deal.
What am I doing here? – this relationship is ‘way too straight for me.

Well, do we have the same relationship from two opposite views of it?  First – as you have probably learned by now – the Three of Pentacles is about relationship; next the ‘Duh’ Page of Cups, the dork or weirdo or whatever, a card that suggests the sentence is a question; then Ten of Wands is slow going and ‘too much.’  Atop these is the staid and sober Hierophant.  If it weren’t for that joker in the middle there, we would have a different story.  (Life is like that, isn’t it?)

Advice is ask yourself whether your relationship makes sense to you, whether you and yours are each doing parts or roles mutually agreed upon, and if not … well why take it seriously if the joker is in it?

Meanings and Illustrations:

Three of Pentacles: This is the relationship.  This is each person doing his/her part as agreed upon, the mutually rewarding and mutually satisfying deal.  Illustration shows an inspection that happens just before the architect gets his final (large) payment.

Page of Cups: As I said, the joker, and a card that suggests a question is afoot.  We see him calling up words like ‘maverick’ and ‘weird,’ but mostly Page of Cups is making the sentence a question.  By the way, in decks other than Rider Waite Tarot, I doubt if this meaning applies.

Ten of Wands: Oh, he is overloaded and going slow.  He has undertaken too much at once.  See the load of wood on his back?  He isn’t putting it down ‘til he gets to where it is going.  This is long term, this is ‘how long?’

Hierophant: The pope pictured here stands for the official story, being straight, normal and committed, the proper role, and the real, physical world.

She wants more than romance, she wants him to be her husband legally, and she isn’t getting it

Justice
King of Wands, Queen of Swords, Six of Cups

Romantic Perspective:
She wants more than romance, she wants him to be her husband legally, and she isn’t getting it.
His wife complains she isn’t getting the romantic attention she is entitled to.
She wants her husband to give her presents like he should.
He does not legally marry the mother of his children; she is bitter about that.
She nags her husband to give the children what they should have.

His ex-wife sues him for child support.  (She is the complainant in a lawsuit over what her husband is to give the children.)
Being married to a man who has kids is irritating to her.
The angry type man and the angry type woman have a romance and get married.
The ex-wife and husband have a lawsuit over who the children live with.
The wife gives her child something that is legally the husband’s.

Another simple story.  We have husband, King of Wands, the Justice card that makes that ‘legal husband,’ the woman who is angry, not getting what she wants and deserves, or is nagging and complaining (or is a complainant in a lawsuit), the Queen of Swords; and then the children or the romance, the Six of Cups.

This probably describes something happening in a visitor’s life, or in the life of people a visitor knows.  I can’t think of any advice it gives, at all. The King of Wands and Queen of Swords would be a VERY unpleasant couple, a warring couple, and they are married because King of Wands with Justice is legal husband, and children would be a part of that.  This spread could be a woman prosecuting a man for romance with an underage girl, or perhaps child molesting, but I did not include that.

Meanings and Illustrations:

King of Wands: This is, in the Tarot Verbatim school of Rider Waite, the classical husband card.  It also means the irritated, angry, edgy, ill-tempered and possibly ‘working-class’ or redneck man.  The illustration supports that meaning:  The salamander symbol by his side means ‘fiery.’  (It’s a middle ages thing, don’t ask.)  He is a red-head, of course.

Queen of Swords: This is the angry irritated nagging complaining wench who isn’t getting what she wants.  He hollers and she whines, so they make a warring couple.  She is pictured as missing a dead child (the child pictured on her chair) and is also seen as a widow.  She has her left hand out as if to say ‘Gimme and NOW would be good’ and her right hand clutching a big sword.

Six of Cups: This is children and romance and old fashioned warm fuzzy feelings.  Little boy gives little girl flowers in front of a quaint house (or two) of a large estate.

Justice: It means ‘legal’ of the ‘legal husband’ phrase.  Also means of course any kind of court action or legality.  It also means ‘should’ and ‘entitled.’
