    Hi! I love this website so much!
    I am quite new to tarot world, and I’d appreciate it if you can give me an insight of the reading I did for myself with Second Soul Mate Spread.

    I got Page of Swords reversed for “How will we meet”. I am a bit confused as according to the reversed meaning, the way we will meet will not be too healthy nor positive…

    Thanks so much for your help:)

    Hi Inger;

    I come to you once again for an important matter. My relative has a serious mental illness that he has been struggling to cope with for a very long time. As a matter of fact he recently had an episode that left my family very sad and helpless. I did a reading regarding this relative well being and health and I am a little confused. Its starts off with the 10 of cups and ends with the page of swords. If you can help me with this reading it would be greatly appreciated.

    The Question: 10 of cups
    The Obstacle: 8 of Swords
    Hopes and Fears: King of Wands & 3 of Swords
    Additional Information: High Priestess & 6 of Swords
    Outcome: Page of Swords???
