Advice We feel a natural sadness and regret when one chapter or phase of our existence ends and another is upon us.  It could be going to college or the ’empty nest’  or divorce or moving to another love relationship or the death of a spouse,  or even moving away from the neighborhood or selling a house.   Any old end of any old phase may evoke a primordial sadness that things do not go on,  they shift and change,  so we cannot stay the same person we are either.



Could This Be You?

Picture this: You look at the cards in your spread.
You immediately get an idea because you know a few of them intimately.
AND you know a system that works because you have had a few

Two of Pentacles

Two of Pentacles

Two of Pentacles depicts a juggler in a silly costume dancing while he juggles two balls (pentacles) that are connected by the sign that means continuing indefinitely in math (the ‘eternity’  symbol),  while ships are tossed on big waves behind him.  Here we have all kinds of movement:  up and down,  ’round and  ’round,  back and forth and wobbly.  The most common meaning is continuing,  keeping up something,  ongoing.  Next is unstable and silly.  Then the movements.

Four of Wands

Four of Wands

The society wedding is a community event.  Leading houses are united in marriage.  Family,  respectable family,  moneyed families.  Headquarters,  organizations of any type:  club,  university,  board,  governmental agencies.  It means neighborhood and even country.


Five of Cups

Five of Cups

“I wish to God I’d never …”  Regret,  sorry,  failure,  melancholy,  haunted by the past.  Loss,  and being the loser.  Ignoring the full cups and being haunted by the ones you spilled.  A black robed figure mourns the past and feels the failure.





The Great Negator,  I call it.  It seldom introduces the idea of death but is a support card for it if another Rider Waite Tarot card that refers to the topic appears.  Five of Cups is mourning,  so now Death can refer to a death.  Illustration shows the passing of the crown when the king dies.  It’s the ‘The king is dead,  long live the king’  thing.  In Tarot Verbatim,  this card most often puts a negative modifier on a surrounding card.

Now Without The Pictures

The first thing I notice is  “Sorry”  and  “Not sorry.”  Death which means no-never-not-isn’t (or any negative word) + Five of Cups which can mean sorry.  A further potential for a bunch of contradictory meanings is the ‘ongoing continuing’  category of meanings for Two of Pentacles.  So you can be sorry continually,  not sorry,  not continually sorry or continually not sorry … and that is a sloppy list that causes cross-eyedness of the mind.

Next thing is that the card labeled Death does not have that primary meaning but is a support card for the subject … and here is  ‘mourning’  in Five of Cups.  So mourning a death.  Right next to that is Four of Wands:  family,  community,  marriage or spouse,  couple,  wedding.  (We are not having fun here.)

And of course we also don’t have an action card.
