    Dear Inger,

    I made a love spread. I’m in an emotional roller coaster- I don’t really know, where my relationship stand, i feel, it’s a real love on both sides, but not sure, where does it head for, not sure in the intention of the other side. I’m filled with uncertainty. I want this relationship so much, but is it enough?
    So I asked my cards about:
    1:) what’s up with my relationship, what’s happening actually:Two of Pentacles
    2.) What is the best, what I should/can do for this relationship: Two of Wands
    3.) Something, that the cards want to say about the relationship : reversed Eight of Cups

    Help me please…
    Thanks a lot.

    Two of pentacles often shows up when the relationship has reached a plateau. The best thing you can do is to take this relationship to new heights (Two of wands). Eight of cups reversed I feel means you need to share a purpose together. Search for something you can get very excited about. I feel like the other part is unaware of how you feel and thinks everything is going great 🙂

    Hi Inger,

    Can you please tell me what the Wheel of Fortune and Two of Pentacles means, it was a 4 card spread, (past-present-future-outcome). The past card was Justice and the present card was Ace of Wands.
    My question was, “What be the chances of me winning first prize on the ticket I purchased?” I pulled another card after it to clarify and I got The Sun .. my interpretation of it was, Major changes in finances for the better beyond my wildest dreams.

    Was two of pentacles the outcome card?

  6. Lily crowson September 4, 2017 at 3:08 am

    Hi Inger! Your website is filled with such valuable information, and you teach such wonderful things on YouTube. Thank you for that!!!
    Anyways I asked a question regarding whether or not a friend from my past wants to reconcile with me. We go off and on with communication but always seem to reconnect out of the blue.
    The cards I pulled were:
    -Ace of pentacles
    -2 of pentacles, and I pulled 8 of wands to clarify.
    -6 of cups
    -And the world card at the bottom of the deck.
    Thank you so much!! 🌹

    Hi inger! So I did a spread with three cards and one of the cards that came up was the two of pentacles. I was asking a question regarding whether or not an old friend and I would reconcile sometime soon. We have off and on communication, and it always leaves me stumped when he just stops talking. Can you help me figure out what the cards are telling me?
    Cards I pulled:
    Ace of pentacles
    Two of pentacles ( I pulled 8 of wands to clarify)
    Six of cups
    And the World card at the bottom of the deck
    Thank you!!

  8. Inger Bråthen September 7, 2017 at 4:41 pm

    Yes, I feel you could reconcile. 🙂

  9. J September 18, 2017 at 12:59 am

    Hi Inger!

    I hope all is well on your end. I would like to know if you pulled the moon (reversed) but had it clarified with the 3 of pentacles (reversed) and the 2 of pentacles, how might you interpret this? I always look forward to your interpretations!

    Thanks as always!

  10. Inger Bråthen September 20, 2017 at 2:54 pm

    Hi, J. It can mean you have outgrown a path and are at a crossroad. I feel you will make a very intuitive decision and move in a slightly new direction.

  11. Rickey October 28, 2017 at 3:17 am

    Hi Inger, I got the two of pentacles as to how a love interest “feels” about me. based on the circumstances, i say either its she’s undecided or can’t come to a conclusion, as I feel the same. i am confused because i got the ace of cups in the “Situation” position. is the ace of cups telling me there’s a ‘overflow’ of emotions between me and her?

  12. Inger Bråthen November 1, 2017 at 10:40 am

    Hi. Ace of cups speaks of the potential of love and emotions/feelings are beginning to awaken.

  13. Lusanda November 4, 2017 at 1:50 am

    Hi there.

    I got the 2 of Pentacles reversed as card 1 and lovers card upright as card 2 in a celtic cross spread. What does that mean?

  14. Inger Bråthen November 6, 2017 at 10:47 am

    Depends a bit on the question. What were the other cards? The lovers as 2nd card can mean it is about making a decision that is very close to your heart. The third card in the celtic cross is the ‘advice’ card.

  15. Z May 24, 2018 at 5:50 am

    Thank you for your posts, I was wondering Inger, why do you see two of pentacles and queen of wands as wanting more financial freedom?

    Especially if two of pentacles is in the distant past (or third bottom position of a celtic cross) and queen of wands as future?

    Would love to have your input further.

  16. Ingie from TW May 26, 2018 at 7:04 am

    Hi. This card combination can mean the Seeker (represented by Queen of wands) spends as much as she earns. It is hard to save money when 2 of pentacles shows up and together with Queen of wands it becomes harder. Queen of wands can indicate the Seeker invests a lot of time and efforts into their hobbies and lifestyle which also takes a toll on finances. On a positive, this card combination can mean the Seeker is turning a hobby or an idea into an entrepreneurial project that can bring them in more money.
