  1. Elster dig February 4, 2017 at 5:37 am

    Hi Inger, i hoping you can shed some light in my reading? I asked what this current persons feelings were for me. He has clearly been fighting his feelings for being in a relationship. However recently I’ve been getting a lot of cups today I got the hierophant, King Coins, 5 wands, HP, 2 swords, temperance, Q Coins, 5 swords (him) world and page of cups as the outcome. My question is there a new romantic interest for me ?These cards are more optimistic than would normally be for him or has his feelings changed? I am under the impression that he does not want a relationship with anyone. We are indeed soul mates as I usually get the magician, lovers and the sun just never in the outcome position. What do you think? Ps he is younger than me by 13 years so a page as the outcome made ME wonder?

  2. Inger Bråthen February 7, 2017 at 10:45 pm

    Hi, Elster. Your cards indicate he loves freedom however, I feel like he is changing and he wants a new life for himself. I do feel like there is a timing issue that is blocking you from being together. This person needs to mature from page of cups to knight of cups. I feel like he will have financial success in about a year a half from now which will give him a lot of confidence, and this will make him feel more like a man. Page of cups can mean he currently feels a bit insecure about himself.

  3. Elster February 9, 2017 at 6:16 am

    Thank you so much!!! Funny enough I did a reading earlier this evening and the outcome Knight OF CUPS!! Still a lot of challenges 7 wands, king of wands , 9 wands and devil. It appears he is growing emotionally not sure if we can/ will be together as you say timing issues could be keeping us apart I’m ready but he clearly needs to grow. However your insight and honestly made my day thanks again!

  4. Lynne March 22, 2017 at 8:47 pm

    Hi Inger,

    There is a man that I want to be in a relationship with but don’t know how he feels or even if he would want a relationship with me or is already in one. I did a celtic cross and got 6 of pents, 4 of pent, 5 of cups, 2 of wands, 3 of wands, page of cups, wheel of fortune, ace of pents, 6 of wands and knight of cups. Im still learning so I turned over an extra two cards and got the five of swords and the lovers.

    I was hopeful of being with him until I got the extra two cards. Does it sound as though we will be together or does the five of swords and the lovers mean that he will either choose someone else or that there is someone else who is trying to keep us apart because she wants him for herself?

  5. Inger Bråthen March 23, 2017 at 9:20 am

    Knight of cups in the final outcome card could mean you will get to know this person as a friend, and you will end up getting to know this person over time. 5 of swords can mean that the timing is not yet right for you to be in a romantic relationship.

  6. Lynne March 23, 2017 at 7:17 pm

    Thankyou, we are slowly getting to know each other so that makes perfect sense.

  7. Erica April 5, 2017 at 5:17 am

    Hi Inger, I received page of cups seven of cups and queen of pentacles as a question as to my off and on relationship of what he intends or wants in his heart for this relationship and myself. The seven of cups next to the queen is throwing me off?

  8. Inger Bråthen April 6, 2017 at 10:39 am

    Seven of cups in a relationship can mean the seeker is unable to make up their mind if they want to be in a relationship again. Next to queen of pentacles it can mean he is a very independent person who doesn’t really want anything to change too much.

  9. Patricia May 2, 2017 at 5:03 pm

    Hi Inger.
    I’m currently facing a time of change(death as the year card)
    Well,the storm is over (end of an affair and quitting my job,things I have been holding on for to long anyway)
    and now I asked a simple question,picking one single card.
    The question was “where do I go from here?” And i picked the page of cups.(I just started to sign myself up on a dating site yesterday,which might explain this card)
    what do you think this could specifically mean for my situation?
    Maybe I could see things clearer with your advice!
    Thank you!

  10. Inger Bråthen May 3, 2017 at 6:42 am

    Hi, Patricia. I feel like you will deal with some issues that occurred in your past, possibly back to your childhood. I also feel you will meet a soulmate who is well educated. I can see this person in your life in about 6-7 months time 🙂

  11. Patty May 4, 2017 at 4:19 am

    As a daily card I pulled 3 of cups. This doesn’t make any sense to me in current situation, which has been very emotionally draining and lonely after the abrupt end of a relationship I did not want or expect. I pulled a reversed page of cups and a reversed six of wands (which appears frequently for me) on either side of this card. I am stumped by this one, particularly page of cups. I am wondering if it means I am using tarot too much, or out of touch with the reality of the situation? Any insights are appreciated! Thank you!

  12. Inger Bråthen May 4, 2017 at 7:21 am

    3 of cups, when it is displayed in disharmony (for example reversed, next to negative cards, or next to reversed cards), can mean there is infidelity. Do you know if there was anyone else involved in your breakup?

  13. Lilly May 6, 2017 at 6:42 pm

    Dear Inger, i received this card when asking should i contact the person i met some weeks ago on a trip and spent 4 very intense and meaningful days together, mostly talking. We are very complementary, i felt like we grew up together. We both agreed it was the destiny for us to meet. However, he is in a relationship and although he expressed a wish to meet again, he never contacted me. Besides this card as an outcome, i got 2 of pentacles, the empress, the star, ace of cups, 5 of pentacles, 3 of swords, 7 of swords, the high priestess. Thank you so much for your help.

  14. Inger Bråthen May 8, 2017 at 10:51 am

    These cards can indicate you can get very hurt by this situation if you pursuit it.

  15. Elisha May 8, 2017 at 6:10 pm

    Hello Inger
    I done a reading today on what a male thinks of me we had an arguement today we are not in relationship or dating. I got

    5 cups
    Ace of swords
    Bottom of deck 9 pentacles
    And moon and page of cups were two that flew out whilst shuffling

    Thank you x

  16. Inger Bråthen May 10, 2017 at 7:30 am

    Looks like the other person is a very independent person who enjoys how things are at the moment… he might not trust in his feelings and often feels let down by others…

  17. AR May 11, 2017 at 1:14 am


    I did a 12 month reading. I’m still working on mastering my understanding of how different cards in the spread influence each other, so your input/expertise would be deeply appreciated.

    I haven’t started using reversed cards in my readings yet since I’m still learning (unless the upright result is out of left field but the reversed result is applicable), but most of my cards here were. Should I take that to mean something?

    Here’s the reading:

    The Empress (R)
    3 Coins (R)
    High Priestess (R)
    Star (R)
    10 Coins (R)
    Tower (R)
    Ace of Coins (R)
    King of Wands (R)
    Temperance (R)
    Hanged Man (R)
    Page of Cups (R)

  18. Inger Bråthen May 11, 2017 at 6:58 am

    Receiving a lot of reversed cards can mean you will take a step back this year to reevaluate things in your life…perhaps you will be worried about making big decisions in your life and you will be extra careful this year…I do think you will make a major decision in the month where you get the Lovers tarot card, and this decision will be made using you heart. This is the only card that was not reversed, indicating that you will be sure of your decision in this period. Everything you do this year could be motivated mainly by a relationship that is important to you.

  19. Kiki June 9, 2017 at 1:15 pm

    Hi Inger,

    I received a tarot reading the other day and the lady pulled the ace of cups (a new love) and page of cups as the outcome. What does the page signify in this position? Thanks! x

  20. Inger Bråthen June 11, 2017 at 7:02 am

    Page of cups speaks of putting yourself out there more to be noticed and seen. If you are single and looking for love, you could have unintentionally acted uninterested or a love interest could have thought you were in a relationship. Page of Cups speaks of an emotional renewal and this will bring you romance.

  21. alex June 20, 2017 at 2:41 pm

    Hello I did a two card reading asking what I had going on for the day yesterday and if I’ll meet a love interest this week possibly this woman I have seen twice at her work. We’ve exchanged friendly smiling eye gazing hellos. I keep going over my head wondering if she’s a person for me or if she has a same feeling too. First card is Page of Cups and second is Temperance. Thank you! 🙂

  22. Kyla July 18, 2017 at 6:51 am

    Hi Inger,

    Your page is awesome and I love it! Thank you so much for providing interpretations for card combinations.

    I drew 4 cards for the month of August and this is what I got:

    High Priestess
    Page of Cups
    4 of cups

    I would love your interpretation of this combination. Thank you!

  23. Inger Bråthen July 20, 2017 at 8:21 pm

    There is a strong focus on personal relationship this month and I feel there could be a renew in your romantic relationship.

  24. Gillian Kerlin August 1, 2017 at 1:05 am

    Hi, I have recently broke up from a 2 and half year relationship were I was engaged for 1 year and a half, moved country and left job to begin again got this reading for this month, can you please tell me what it means? Four of swords, page of cups, king of coins.
    Thank you

  25. Sonia August 1, 2017 at 1:30 pm

    What does two of cups, page of cups and kin of swords means. I did 3 spread cards?

  26. Inger Bråthen August 3, 2017 at 4:16 pm

    All you need to do now, Gillian, is to trust yourself. You are on the right path and you will find your feet quickly.

  27. Inger Bråthen August 3, 2017 at 4:36 pm

    This speaks of a relationship and a possible renewal of a relationship. There are strong feelings at play.

  28. Maria August 28, 2017 at 6:49 am

    Hey Inger.. I did a reading about this person with who I’ve been getting involved.. this person is my friend but now we are in something friendly but with a little romantic vibe all mixed.. and the other day I asked my cards what were their feelings for me and it came out The high priestess, the page of cups and the King of cups… Nome of them were reversed.. what could this mean? Thank you for helping us like only you know how to do.

  29. Inger Bråthen August 28, 2017 at 7:04 am

    Hi, Maria. This card combination indicates there is a strong possibility for a relationship as these cards line up as an Arrow of romance. This person most likely has romantic feelings for you. Page of cups indicates shyness so your friend could find it difficult to tell you.

  30. N September 2, 2017 at 2:26 pm

    Hello Inger,

    I did a spread regarding whether I should trust someone again. I got the following cards:

    intentions – 5 of Cups
    should I trust – Queen of Cups
    Advice – Page of Cups

    I am having problems making a connection with the cards in their drawn positions. Are you able to shed some light on what they mean. I have been very emotional lately (recent break up) so the cards may just be a reflection of me.

    Thank you so much.

    I for one greatly appreciate everything you do on this site and have learned more since finding it than I have in years. Thank you for that.

  31. Inger Bråthen September 2, 2017 at 3:19 pm

    Follow your instinct here. 5 of cups as intentions can mean you will get hurt. Queen of cups means you can trust your intuition now. Advice is page of cups which is very careful who to trust.

  32. N September 2, 2017 at 11:44 pm

    Thank you Inger. This confirms what I am feeling no matter what they say. Have a great day!

  33. 55 September 19, 2017 at 6:59 am

    Hi Inger!

    I asked what he thinks/feels for me and what will be of us… both time came out: Page of Cups.

    We are both over 50 and not directly in contact.
    We met two times, with years in between… but each time only for dinner… although I liked him really, and he seemed to like me too. I can’t forget him, and I have feeling – it could be the same with him.

  34. Inger Bråthen September 21, 2017 at 8:54 am

    Page of cups speaks of new feelings or the potential of feelings, but this card also denotes someone who is very shy which could be the reason why you are not directly in contact.

  35. Rickey November 3, 2017 at 12:58 am

    Hello Inger, hope all is well with you and yours. you are truly Heavensent opening my eyes more gaining insight into how to read tarot spreads. so i did a 3 card layout regarding my potential love interest, and the 1st card i got Three of Cups in the “Love & me” position. 2nd card i got Six of Wands as “Situation”. and 3rd card i got Page of Cups as a ” Challenge”. the way im reading this is the three of cups six of wands are fire and water(don’t mix well) but they’re the same ‘beneficial’ energy right? “celebration,victory, satisfaction”, but just dampen a little? like take it slow? now with the page of cups(water) as a challenge, i am sorta confused how to read his message, but here’s what im feeling. with ‘water(three of cups)fire (six of wands)and another water(page of cups) being that three of cups and six of wands are different challenging elements, but same ‘celebratory’ energy, i sense the page of cups is telling me to take my time; approach gently, like in a Temperance type of way? am i reading this right, Inger?

  36. Inger Bråthen November 6, 2017 at 5:58 pm

    Page of cups could also indicate some shyness and over-worrying. Be yourself and let things flow naturally. I feel like once you get to know each other better, things will go very well.

  37. Rickey November 8, 2017 at 11:03 pm

    Thanks Inger, you are spot on about my shyness especially “over-worrying”.

  38. sarika Fauzi June 1, 2018 at 10:19 am

    hi Inger, I love your webpage. I am learning so much. I did a reading of a love interest whom i have been seeing regularly and casualy,
    I asked What feelings he has for me, I pulled the card Strength twice and I asked what sort of Strength feelings are they? and I got the Page of cups. Does this mean he is with holding his emotions, feeling shy or does it mean he feels strongly about me and falling in love?

  39. Ingie from TW June 2, 2018 at 5:52 pm

    This card combination can mean he has warm feelings for you. He most likely likes you a lot and he feels you are someone he can talk to. Together with Strength he most likely also trusts you and feel he can depend on you. Page of cups often shows up when the person has some vulnerabilities and they are holding back a little bit in the fear of rejection and getting hurt.

  40. sarika Fauzi June 16, 2018 at 6:45 pm

    thanks Inger!
