    Hi, this card combination can mean there is some confusion between the couple, most likely due to either being too self-conscious and/or having some financial concerns.

    Hi, Angie. King of cups speaks of someone who you have a strong emotional connection to who is also a very good friend. The best way to time event is to shuffle the whole deck but you are only looking for a card from ace of swords to ten of swords, denoting a time frame of 10 years. Cut the deck as normal. Turn over one card at the time and the first sword from ace to ten of swords showing up, is the answer, for example, 2 of swords denoting 2 years.

    Hej Inger,
    I just did an online reading (I don´t know what you think of these in terms of accuracy). Anyhow: I asked if this guy I dated on and off until a couple of months ago is the man I will settle down and have kids with. (He lives in another city and we are not currenty in contact. I just have a “feeling” that he aswell felt a deeper connection with me.) I did a RW reading with one card and got the King of Cups. Whats is your take on that? And do you think one can “rely” on online readings? Thanks in advance!
    Best regards,
