    Hi Inger, for a start I would like to say-I enjoy your page and your lovely positive energy and bright outlook on things. My love situation is weird. I have been seing a guy for 8 months now, it’s on and off type of rltship, when things are fine it’s all beautiful, inspiring and magical. The first few months were especially magical and we have both been in love, it’s addictive. But he easily gets upset and if I don’t agree with him on issues he takes off and disappears for a week or two and then comes back all humbled.
    I look up at cards for us regularly and always get magician, devil, lovers, nine of cups, sun, death and half of the time star card. I do get minor arcana cards as well, swords when we argue and cups when we’re back in love. I just can’t cut him off it feels too significant and karmic and I truly believe and feel he’s a soulmate. I would love to know the future for us, but not sure if I’m objective in reading. Two times I drew the cards and got different results, once the end card was five of wands and second time it was Star.
    Would you have an opinion on this?
    Many thanks,

  2. Inger Bråthen December 13, 2016 at 1:56 pm

    Hi, Tara. Being with your soulmate can be difficult when emotions are intense, and your boyfriend most likely is scared of getting hurt. 🙂 You get a lot of Major Arcana cards which can mean he feels this love is out of control, and thus, he reacts the way he does…:)

  3. Tara December 13, 2016 at 8:13 pm

    Dear Inger,
    Thank you for clarifying this and putting a bit of light through this confusion.
    Yeah, it makes sense now.
    But do you think we have a future together?

  4. Inger Bråthen December 14, 2016 at 4:55 am

    Absolutely. 🙂

  5. Tara December 14, 2016 at 11:07 am

    Really? Wow. My heart is at peace now.
    Thank you so much. 😄
    Love & light to you,

  6. Tara January 22, 2017 at 1:41 am

    Dear Inger,
    Hope you’re doing well. In the meantime I found out that my bf is more than my soul mate, we are actually twin souls/flames. Therefore it’s more complicated and a lot to deal with. But it’s been a rewarding experience as we have learned so much about ourselves and have healed and still healing so many soul issues. It’s about awakening, ascension, spiritual love, and unconditional loving just as the Star card suggests.
    Thought I should let you know.
    All the very best,
    Love, light n blessings,

  7. marz March 13, 2017 at 11:03 pm

    Dear inger is there any advice for me on how to deal with my ex in a complicated situation that we have going on the cards told me were twin soul flames but in this situation im losing hope

  8. Inger Bråthen March 14, 2017 at 7:26 am

    Dear Marz. I pulled some cards for you. The cards say the best thing you can do right now is to take some time alone and away from the situation with your ex so that you can heal from this situation.

    There’s a Leo whom I’ve loved for years, I know he loves me too. He shuts down and disappears sometimes. This times it’s been the longest. I always end up with either the Emporer, strength or star. I’m a cappy. Or synastry and composite charts is amazing but IDK….I think I’m dealing with a big ole scared lion. Any advice?

  10. Inger Bråthen May 25, 2017 at 8:18 am

    Yeah, he could be also having commitment issues. If you give me your Date of births, I can compare your life path numbers and see how well they align. If he is a 5 life path, or if he has a 9 attitude, for example, there could be some issues with commitment.

  11. Nikkie June 30, 2017 at 5:16 am

    hi inger,
    i’m fairly new to tarot and i keep reading up on cards but i’m having a hard time with combining them together to tell a story. i know that ace of cups is a good card to get in love situations but how do the other two cards effect it? i asked how things would progress with this guy i know. i got the star, 7 of pentacles, and ace of cups. any insight? i’d really appreciate it. thank you nikkie

  12. Inger Bråthen July 1, 2017 at 8:08 am

    Ace of cups speaks of feelings awakening, and when it shows up with 7 of pentacles, it can be that we are holding back a bit. The Star shows up when we are being touched by the light, and 7 (in 7 of pentacles) is also a spiritual number, so there is a spiritual connection between you, but you might not know what to do with it. I feel you might have to be the one to put some ‘pressure’ on this relationship, or I feel it could be moving forward very slowly. I feel you need to show how you feel and this will bring everything forward, especially with your communication. This person you are asking about is very stoic and will not always show you how he feels. He internalizes a lot.

  13. Sara July 25, 2017 at 2:21 pm

    Hi Inger, I was wondering what your thoughts on the tower (reversed) and the star together as feelings for someone?

  14. Inger Bråthen July 30, 2017 at 12:59 pm

    This person could be internalising a lot emotionally and is not very comfortable with strong feelings. This person likes to feel secure above all else.

  15. Eva August 23, 2017 at 3:03 pm

    Hello Inger
    I hope you can help me:
    I asked my cards about an ex, who called me a few weeks ago, because of a condolance. Since then we have written some short mails, and we met once because of a job possibility. Nothing special.
    It was a very passionate secret romance with a bitter end…
    So, my tarot questions and the cards I got:
    What kind of feelings does he have related to me: Five of Wands, Four of Cups, King of Cups
    What is his desire, wish related to me: The Star
    What kind of communication can I expect? Three of Pents reversed
    What kind of relationship will be between us( if it will be): Ten of Pentacles
    I would appreciate your interpretations. Thanks!


  16. Nayer August 23, 2017 at 6:58 pm

    Dear Inger,
    I have a question… Recently one of my cousins passed away and it was pretty schocking for me… And i did a tarot card reading. I asked if my cousin is happy now and where is his soul. I got Death, 2 of Wands and The Star. I actualy got pretty emotional and started to cry. Can you please interpret my cards? Because i’m overwhelmed and i can’t interpret them by myself… Is that mean that he is happy and in good place?

  17. Inger Bråthen August 25, 2017 at 5:04 am

    Hi. Is this person in a relationship already?

  18. Eva August 25, 2017 at 1:51 pm

    Yes, he is.
    And me too. I’m thinking at most in friendship, but it was a big love…And his feelings and thoughts and desires are not indifferent for me…

  19. Inger Bråthen August 28, 2017 at 7:45 am

    Sorry to hear about your cousin. My condolences. This I feel was unexpected to your cousin as well, so I decided to pull a card from the Norse gods and goddesses deck. I got Frey which is the most positive and healing card in the deck and indicates he is with a father figure and is well taken care of. This man waited for your cousin and was there to welcome him. Your cousin is adapting to the new energy seen in two of wands and is healing (seen in the star). I also feel your cousin will play with your computer and other electronics to give you a sign that he is there watching over you 🙂

  20. Eva August 29, 2017 at 11:32 pm

    Dear Inger,
    I’m waiting so much for your answer…
    Thanks a lot.

  21. Lisa September 2, 2017 at 11:10 am

    Hi Inger! What is the combination of the page of cups, death card, and star mean in love reading? I asked do I have a twin flame. I will appreciate your response.

  22. Inger Bråthen September 3, 2017 at 4:30 pm

    Hi. This card combination can mean your twin is someone very unpredictable, protective, and at the same time very psychic and sensitive person.

  23. Sand September 7, 2017 at 3:51 pm

    Hi Inger, please can you give me some advise on the below spread as I got the devil as the outcome and pulled up some more cards. I do not really understand it as I am learning tarot but can not put all my effort into it right now. It is just a general spread with a focus on work and love what does it mean to get the star next to the devil, I pulled some extra cards empror and ten of cups and judgement.

    High priestess, empress, ace of swords, wheel of fortune, queen of pentacles, seven of pentacles, three of swords, three of wands, star and devil as outcome. I pulled three extra cards as the devil card scared me and I got Emperor 10 of cups and judgement. I am on a soul mate journey and was wondering if there was any indication on when a meet may take place.

  24. Inger Bråthen September 9, 2017 at 1:18 pm

    When you are on a soulmate journey you must be very careful that you are not pulling in a negative person masquerading as a soulmate. It looks like you are pulling in a very dominant male who could be dangerous. Write a soulmate list and put in the most important things to you in a relationship and make sure you add characteristics that your soulmate will be truthful, honest, reliable, monogamous etc.

  25. Tony November 6, 2017 at 11:22 am

  26. Tony November 6, 2017 at 11:52 am

    I think the hermit mean tht someone is about to lead they cliented in a trap.. See my son have a public defender.. Is they gonna rail road my son

    Can u please tell me wht those cards combination mean


  27. Inger Bråthen November 6, 2017 at 2:44 pm

    Hi. This can mean there will be some chaos. 6 of swords reversed can mean chaos with paper work so the lawyer could be disorganised.

  28. Inger Bråthen November 6, 2017 at 2:45 pm

    The defender could be disorganised due to 6 of swords reversed. You will have to be strong and patient because with all reversed cards, there could be a slow process to get through to the other end to get back on track again.

  29. Tony November 7, 2017 at 1:32 pm

    Thank you i really appreciate that.. The other cards said they going to release him. And tht he have a mental illness depression… 9 of sword say sumthing about slander gossip .. Do u see that?

    Thank you

  30. Inger Bråthen November 11, 2017 at 3:34 pm

    9 of swords often shows up when the Seeker is worried about what others are thinking about them.
