    Hello! I made the celtic cross for a ‘relationship’, in the other person’s view: his experience/feelings/situation about me. The thing is: we are not in a relationship. We know each other for a couple of years and we had a brief involvent in the past. We are separated and rarely see each other. But we are always meeting again by coincidence. And in this ocasions I suspect he feels something about me. Another important thing: he has an open relationship with his girlfriend.
    Another odd thing is that dreamed with him in a surreal frequency last year. Sorry for this soap opera, but I really would love your help with this:

    I made this celtic cross yesterday, because we met again last week. Again, it is a spread with his point of view/circunstances/feelings about the ‘situation’ with me ( until mid of february- a month).

    1. Situation: The moon (+Page of Cups)
    2.Obstacles: King of Swords
    3. Influences: 7 of Swords
    4. Hidden Influences: The Justice + 6 of swords
    5. Past Influences:The Star
    6. Near Future: Knight of cups (+ 3 of cups)
    7. How he feels about me (in his self-awareness): 6 of cups
    8. How he sees me: King of Cups
    9. What he feels: 9 of cups
    10. Outcome (february): Ace of cups

    I would love to get your vision about this, Inger!

    Hi, these cards denote there is a chance you will deepen your connection in this month period.

    Hi Inger,

    Situation: I have a relationship with someone that is separated and I am kind of never sure of if I should maybe let our situation go because often times, it is a difficult situation to deal with, but we also have a ton of love in our situation. I feel like I am in limbo. I can only seem to keep things how they are even though I am frustrated.

    Cards: Some of these cards have been coming up quite a lot whenever I pull to get some understanding to see where we are. The 7 of Pentacles comes up often, as well as the 6 of Pentacles, and all of the Wands cards have come up a few times. Recently, the Page of Cups has come up too.

    1. 10 of wands
    2. 7 of pentacles
    3. 2 of wands
    4. ace of wands
    5. queen of cups
    6. 9 of wands
    7. 6 of pentacles
    8. 7 of cups
    9. 8 of wands
    10. page of cups
    11. 6 of swords
    12. the high priestess

    What are the cards saying?

  4. Inger Bråthen February 19, 2017 at 12:25 pm

    Hi, Jade. This relationship will most likely speed up soon, so you won’t be in limbo for long. Just trust and enjoy your new relationship 🙂

    Hello Inger!

    Sorry to bother you with this, but i’ve had a limbo period with someone who is very dear to me. While we have been in a sort of relationship it’s still not official yet due to some things that have happened in regards to family health and past relationship influences. Currently due to the vast amount of study and work things have been a little stagnant so I thought that this spread might help out with giving me a clear picture as I’m pretty broken up about everything.

    These were the cards I received:
    Card 1. The real situation. Where you stand: Page of Pentacles
    Card 2. The biggest barrier, often relates to how you communicate: Two of Wands
    Card 3. What is the best thing you can do: Two of Pentacles
    Card 4. Karmic ties, past lives: The Chariot
    Card 5. Why are you together: Ace of Pentacles
    Card 6. Future influences: The World
    Card 7. You, how things look from your perspective: Four of Pentacles
    Card 8. Your Partner, how things look from his/hers perspective: Seven of Pentacles
    Card 9. How your energy flows together: Temperance
    Card 10 + 11 + 12. Most likely outcome: Seven of Swords, Nine of Cups and the Empress.

    I’m also attempting to get better at reading! 🙂 So I’ve tried to interpret the cards myself but I struggle to interpret them together:
    The page of pentacles might be telling me that I am thinking too much into the situation, The two of wands worries me a lot because it seems to point to stagnation and turmoil which upsets me a little. The two of pentacles seems to be telling me to be extremely honest with myself and decide whether or not I really want this. Unfortunately I am unsure as to what the Chariot points to with past lives but I do know the chariot signifies victory through hard work. The Ace of Pentacles sometimes has ties to grounding or stability so I think we’re together because we are able to provide this for one another when times are tough? The world seems to be a good card to have since I usually equate it to being “the world is your oyster” but also I’ve heard it can dictate an abundance of choices? I’m not sure what the four of pentacles and seven of pentacles in this position means, but it worries me a little :(. Temperance generally points to balance and patience, so maybe our energy compliments one another?

    The Nine of cups and the Empress seems to point to good things regarding the outcome but the seven of swords confuses me with its placement.

    But I would love to hear your interpretation Inger! Hopefully our future isn’t too horrible? 🙁 Sorry for my own messy interpretation, I’m still a beginner and trying to take every opportunity to learn but sometimes I get confused by my own interpretations since I seem to interpret cards separately rather than as a whole.

    Love, Meowni

    Hi, you get a lot of 7 energy. The chariot is a 7, 7 of pentacles, and 7 of swords. 3 x 7 often speak of a strong spiritual connection, so I believe you are in this for a reason, and this is why it is hard to walk away. The cards I believe is telling you to wait before making a decision. Two of pentacles means things are going in circles at the moment and do the best you can to have fun while in this energy. Two of wands in barrier situation can mean you want to push a decision, but it is not yet time. Your partner could also have some financial stress as seen in 7 of pentacles, and this person could feel resources is limited. You are meant to create more abundance together as seen in Ace of pentacles. Temperance means together you create something that is truly wonderful, and I feel you just need more time together, just the two of you. 7 of swords, 9 of cups, and the Empress can mean you will get your wish fulfilled in this relationship, but with all the 7 in your reading, there must be a focus on the spiritual. I feel like together you are more spiritual than what you would be apart. You bring out spiritual energy in each other and this is also a reason why you are together. I feel like you will be able to accomplish things together because of this inspiration.

    Hi Inger!

    Thank you so so much for your comment and help, it’s actually really strange because a while back I got a reading from someone and they said that I had a lot of recurring 7’s as well and they also spoke of having to wait before making decisions and to think things out better. I guess things haven’t changed much haha!
    I would definitely love more time together but I’m afraid that won’t be able to happen as much until the holidays in July, but I’ll continue to wait and persevere!

    Thank you for your time! It really really helped!

    Much love, Meowni

    Hi Inger

    I recently bought the astrology master tarot deck and is learning how to use it. I’m not sure how to start it but I did the Celtic cross based on love (I don’t even know or sure if that’s what I asked in my heart) between me and my boyfriend. But the cards I pulled are :
    1. Reversed strength
    2. Wheel of fortune
    3. Knight of cups
    4. Reversed queen of cups
    5. King of wands
    6. Nine of cups
    7. Reversed six of pentacles
    8. Reversed page of pentacles
    9. Reversed Star
    10. Fool
    11. Reversed four of wands
    12. Two of wands

    Could you kindly translate it to me in an easier way for me to understand the cards I just pulled better?

    Also, if I want to pull cards on a daily basis for eg. Career, money, how do I begin and in what way should I display the cards on the table? Thanks in advance.

    Card 1. The real situation. Where you stand. Strength reversed. Love yourself more.

    Card 2. The biggest barrier, often relates to how you communicate. Wheel of fortune. You might be pulled in different directions.

    Card 3. What is the best thing you can do. Knight of cups. Be romantic.

    Card 4. Karmic ties, past lives. Queen of cups reversed. This relationship will teach you about who you really are, and it will awaken your intuitive abilities.

    Card 5. Why are you together. King of wands. To have fun and to be successful in your careers. To motivate each other.

    Card 6. Future influences. Nine of cups. You will have a wish fulfilled.

    Card 7. You, how things look from your perspective. Six of pentacles reversed. You might feel you give more than you receive.

    Card 8. Your Partner, how things look from his/hers perspective. Page of pentacles reversed. Your partner could be unhappy in a career that is affecting your relationship.

    Card 9. How your energy flows together. Star. You are compatible. You can help each other making your dreams come true.

    Card 10 + 11 + 12. Most likely outcome. Fool, four of wands reversed two of wands. You will have fun in this relationship, and possibly take your time before you settle down. This relationship is about having as much fun as you can and to explore and learn about what makes life exciting.

    1) ten of wands
    2) temperance
    3) five of wands
    4) two of wands
    5) Wheel of Fortune
    7) Three of swords
    8) Heirophant
    9) Eight of swords
    10, 11, 12) seven of wands, King of pentacles, three of wands

    I am learning to read and would love to see what you think and compare to my reads on the cards.
