All of today’s tarot cards come from the reproduction of the original Rider Waite Tarot Deck.
Your Daily Wealth Card
King of Pentacles – Court Card
A Dark Man, Victory, Bravery, Courage, Success
Divinatory Meanings: Valor, realizing intelligence, business and normal intellectual aptitude, sometimes mathematical gifts, and attainments of this kind; success in these paths
Additional Divinatory Meanings: A rather dark man, a merchant, master, professor.
Theory: The King is higher octave of the ace, and tis particular king heads the cross of fixed signs, so he has to do with economy, agriculture, art, vast business, devotional service of the church. The general effect of this card must consequently be to afford protection, and as it shows a very favorable attitude on the part of superiors or influential people, though these will be rather young, or at least, not very old. There is above all noblesse in this card, integrity, honesty above all doubt, nor is anything in it which can be turned to evil, were it thrice reversed. The only sort of faults that could be observed in people coming under it would be pride coupled with some vanity, love of pomp, gambling. The Leo-type will naturally dominate the card. Here is a man you must go see and visit, because he will never come to you. He has wide spread influence, which for the good of everybody who wishes to profit by it, and against which it is hopeless to contend. The card means further everything in the way of sanction, agreement, consent, etc., and gives success in love-affairs and marriage.
Your Daily Love Tarot Card
7 of Cups
Description: Strange Chalices of vision, but the images are more especially those of the fantastic spirit.
Divinatory Meaning: Fairy favors, images of reflection, sentiment, imagination, things seen in the glass of contemplation; some attainment in these degrees, but nothing permeant or substantial is suggested.
Additional Divinatory Meaning: Fair child; idea, design, resolve, movement.
Theory: The house of the changeful concrete mind and thought which indeed nothing is permanent, and everything is passing, ephemeral. These effects must be very varied, including the most fantastic plans and conceptions, and ‘fancy’ is the most fitting word for this card. It will denote many intellectual proceedings and has to do with traveling for short distances, sight-seeing, considering, gathering impressions, etc. The word ‘reflection’ is really quite appropriate in its place here, because the card represents the conditions of the mind in which surroundings are simply reflections of the soul. There may come seductive and suggestive images, some of which may be realised, but others will remain just fancy. The discription which is given by Waite is very accurate and points to the fact, that under the house come nature-spirits and genii, who will eventually help, guide or mislead man.
Your Daily Health Tarot Card
3 of Cups
Divinatory Meaning: The conclusion of any matter in plenty, perfection, and merriment; happy issue, victory, fulfilment, solace, healing.
Additional Divinatory Meaning: Unexspected advancement for a millitary man [or woman].
Theory: The house of friends, must bring concord, etc. Friendship, but on this airy house more platomic than that of the forgoing card. It is the house surroundings so far mastered by the Ego and on this account ‘friendly.’ So the soul-life in surroundins that have been mastered will enjoy desirable and ‘good’ conditions and feel ‘happy.’ There is no feeling whatever of being hampered or thwarted, or depressed. All good luck and general satisfaction. As the eleventh house has to do with commerce and business, and the card favors them beyond doubt, giving a good understanding of opportunity and of the charater and wishes of those with whom we have to do, so that we can supply what they ask.
Your Daily wealth Tarot Card
2 of Wands
Riches, Fortune, Opulence, Magnificence, Grandeur
Divinatory Meaning: Between the alternative readings there is no marriage possible; on the one hand, riches, fortune, magnificence; on the other, physical suffering, disease, chagrin, sadness, mortification. The design gives on suggestion; here is the lord overlooking his dominion and alternately contemplating a globe; it looks like malady, the mortification, the sadness of Alexander amidst the grandeur of this world’s wealth.
Additional Divinatory Meaning: A young ladfy may expect trivial disappointments.
Theory: Something of the oppression, which the heaviness of this fixed and earthy house exercises on the mind. It is the impression of heaviness, of a load on the back, which easily may attain the more concise form of a fear, a gloom, a feeling of being downcast, impotent, weak and not able to resist circumstances. So it may signify the pressure of material conditions, the responsibility imparted by riches, but also projects and conceptions of an economical nature and the idea of capital and capitalizing. Further combinations with the house of Taurus must give music, and we may be sure that this card always has some significance in that way and in the sphere of art intellectually and in general. This is the very important significance.
I do not know about anyone else but I have trouble understanding the Rider Waite tarot card deck when pulling just one card for each of our four headings. I think this will be the only day for using this deck in this way.
