    Thanks for sharing your amazing talents.

  2. Inger Bråthen February 13, 2016 at 12:46 pm

    Thank you, Angeline. 🙂
    Blessings to you!

  3. Helen February 17, 2016 at 5:58 am

    i asked what jobs good for me i got king of cups and queen of cups. what does this mean? PS. when i do tarot on guys i like swords come up? meaning please and greatly appreciated.

  4. Inger Bråthen February 17, 2016 at 7:00 pm

    Hi Helen. King of cups and Queen of cups denote excellent people skills. You have a gift with people. Management would suit you really well. Running your own business is also something you are very good at. People are drawn to you like a moth to a flame. Swords in love denote you need someone who ‘gets’ you, someone who is intellectually on the same wave length and you can have amazing conversations and share ideas and inspirations. Swords in a love reading mean ‘do not settle for less than your intellectual equal’.

    sometimes when i ask questions page of cups turns up – even when i asked what my rising sign is? I think page of cups is pisces. what does this mean? and also i asked about my last job and Tower major card turned up and it was disasterous! many thanks Inga 🙂

  6. Inger Bråthen June 28, 2016 at 4:16 pm

    Page of cups is about being awake emotionally, and it is also about learning new skills that will benefit you later on in life. You can learn more about Page of cups here: http://www.tarotwikipedia.com/page-of-cups-as-the-final-card-in-a-tarot-reading/

    what does star tarot meant

  9. Inger Bråthen December 1, 2016 at 10:05 am

    Hi, Helen. I believe these cards speak of you have leadership qualities, and you are able to handle work that is very varied. You don’t rely on having to have a set routine, and you know who to get the best out of people you work with.

  10. Inger Bråthen December 1, 2016 at 10:07 am

    In a career question, the star often speak of jobs using technology.

  11. Kardosstt December 5, 2016 at 11:56 pm

    Can The Tower be implied for the job in insurance too? Thank you so much, Inger.

  12. Inger Bråthen December 6, 2016 at 7:04 pm

    Yes, any job where disaster can be an element 🙂

  13. Harry December 12, 2016 at 7:31 am

    what about Tower tarot as what others think of me. what does this meaN/ thanks h:)

  14. Inger Bråthen December 12, 2016 at 6:45 pm

    Hi. I don’t think one card can tell how people are thinking of you because people are so different. Maybe someone is feeling a bit intimidated by you, and that is what the Tower is showing.
