    Hello I just asked how my day was going to go tomorrow, or if there were any messages for me, and now I’m regretting it, as I’m not sure which question was answered but I got
    9 of Pentacles Reversed
    Ace of pentacles Reversed
    10 of cups
    Someone please give me some insight?!?

  3. Inger Bråthen October 21, 2016 at 5:13 pm

    Hi, I think the cards are letting you know that you will be guided a lot tomorrow through your intuition.

    I was asking about business (which has been a constant struggle, but
    things have been looking up lately) the cards make a good impression,
    however “the good feeling” does not pay the bills : ) and was hoping for some
    of your insight
    King & Queen of Cups, ace of sword and page of wand, ace of pentacles,mstar, temperance.
    Thanks in advance

  5. Inger Bråthen June 8, 2017 at 4:55 pm

    Hi. There could be unnecessary drama in this business from a person with big personality. Page of wands between ace of sword and ace of pentacles can mean this person is costing your business.

  6. Ivory June 9, 2017 at 7:50 am

    Thank you very much 🙂
    … I guess my take was a bit too optimistic 🙂 ?
    I thought the aces were new beginnings and the star hope and/or blessedness … quite frankly
    two male clients decided not to make a purchase and I’m waiting for funds 🙁 I did another reading
    with almost the same cards appearing, this time zking of cups nine of pentacles plus sun and star and the King of swords … Still drama ? Hmmm , sorry to keep asking, you have way more experience 🙂
    Have a great day,

  7. Inger Bråthen June 11, 2017 at 7:04 am

    The Star is a good card to get, but it also speaks of the unexpected that can throw us. The Star will make you learn quickly and recover quickly as well. With your new card combination, I am getting you will be in a much stronger position, and you will make some very good decisions based on everything you have learned so far. You are putting your business hat on, basically 🙂

  8. Ivory June 12, 2017 at 6:25 am

    Dear Inger,
    Thanks so much, your input and dedication to
    This site is very much appreciated : )

    Hello Inger,

    I did a reading for my aunt. I asked what should she expect from her meeting with a gentleman tomorrow (strictly business matter). I used the Celtic Cross on your site: 4 of Cups, 3 of Wands, 3 of Pentacles, The World, King of Swords, Knight of Cups, Knight of Pentacles, Ace of Swords, Wheel of Fortune and 9 of Pentacles. I felt that after all the stress she’s been thru in regards to the matter, she finally will receive what she’s been wanting. I hope you can provide me some feedback, I appreciate it, thanks.

    Hello Inger,

    I know you get told this all the time, but thank you for helping your visitors with card combinations! They’ve been nothing but helpful!

    If a reading has the main card as the 9 of Pentacles but then the clarifying cards are temperance, high priestess (reversed), and 7 wands how would you interpret this?

    Thank you!

  11. Inger Bråthen August 28, 2017 at 7:27 am

    Hi. This card combination speaks of having an advantage point and someone could be wanting what you have, and could even be manipulating you (HP reversed) to make you vulnerable. Don’t give up your advantage and don’t apologize for your abundance. The way someone is communicating with you could be very off so the cards are there to give you a heads up so that you don’t let go of your position so easily. 🙂

  12. Lisa August 30, 2017 at 8:55 am

    Hi Inger, what is the combination of nine of pentacle, eight of cups, and page of cups mean? I ask the card what is the feeling of a guy I dated. I will appreciate your response. Thank you.

  13. Lisa August 30, 2017 at 9:53 am

    Hi Inger, what is the the combination of the nine of pentacles, eight of cups, and page of cup in a love reading? I asked what is the feeling of a guy I dated few years ago?

  14. Inger Bråthen September 3, 2017 at 4:20 pm

    These cards seem to indicate he is a very careful person when it comes to love and romance, and he enjoys being independent.

  15. Rickey October 11, 2017 at 10:32 am

    Hi Inger, I was just doing a daily tarot reading asking the universe to give me insight into how i should “set the best intentions for the day, if there is anything i should know about my crush/love interest,and give me clarity for any doubt’s or fears i have”. 9 of pentacles showed up, which confused me, but my first instinct was this was referring to my love interest as i’ve had the 9 of pents show up before representing her; i had 9 of cups show up as well for her(her birthday is october ‘9’th. but I’m stuck on what is it trying to tell me about her in how she see’s me or open to me? which has been on my mind. can you give me insight on this?

  16. Inger Bråthen October 15, 2017 at 9:06 am

    Hi, Rickey. You are most likely two very independent people who are very strong and powerful on your own, and you could be both feeling you are more powerful on your own than in a relationship which could create a barrier to get into a relationship. You could both be needing a lot of time before you decide to settle down with someone.
