    Hello, I wanted to know why my ex was trying to reconcile with me & I pulled the knight of pentacles reversed, 4 of cups, & the empress. What does that mean? We have a 7 week old baby together so I’m guessing that might have something to do with it? Thanks

  2. Inger Bråthen June 8, 2017 at 4:07 pm

    I feel like he wants to impress you with something he is currently doing. I also feel he will be very busy soon, and you might feel let down by him, however, the Empress also denotes he wants to be a good parent.

    What would you say for an outcome of Knight of Pentacles as career change? Is it positive or negative?

    Hello Inger, I have asked the Tarot cards what will the upcoming full moon on Nov 4 bring about to the manifestation of the relationship with my boyfriend and I got “The Knight of Pentacles, The Wheel of Fortune and the Empress”. I’m confused, he’s been quite slow (as a Virgo man) in showing any advancement of actions for our relationship and we have been together for a year now. What can this reading mean? Thank you!

    Hi Inger,

    I pulled the knight of pentacles, the wheel of fortune and the empress when I asked what will manifest for me and my boyfriend on this full moon (Nov 4). I’m confused what these cards mean? Thank you!

    The key to this relationship is communication. I feel you need to focus on what you both want and start working towards your common goals that make you both feel excited about your future.

    Could you help me to clarify the combination?
    Thank you.
