    GREAT JOB!

    Hi Inger!

    I hope all is well on your end! I would like to know if you pulled the King of Cups and got it clarified with the ace of swords (reversed) and the 9 of wands (reversed), how would you interpret this combination? As always, thank you very much for your interpretations! They’ve been extremely helpful!

  3. Inger Bråthen September 23, 2017 at 5:07 pm

    With two reversed cards clarifying the King of cups it can mean you are questioning the character of someone who could be a bit of a bully and on an emotional rollercoaster.

    Hey Inger, i did a spread regarding my love interest, and in the position representing myself i came up as the ace of cups, and the next card i pulled represented her, and she came up as ace of swords. does this mean she has clarity of mutual attraction for me? how should i read this combination?

  5. Anthony November 5, 2017 at 10:57 pm

    Hi Inger

    I just got my love reading few days ago by a tarot reader. I got Ace of Swords, Three of Cups, and Queen of Pentacles. She said that I will meet someone early next year in a seminar or some serious event but it won’t be long lasting because that person will not be serious in love. She also said my efforts to find love is far from enough because the Queen of Pentacles told that I’m too lazy and passive. I don’t know but somehow I disagree because I’ve done the best I could do to find my man until I was desperate and asked her for help. I think Queen of Pentacles is a good omen but I have trouble to connect it with the other cards. What do you think?

  6. Inger Bråthen November 6, 2017 at 9:41 am

    Hi, Anthony. I pulled some cards for you as well and I feel you will have a change in your life direction and you could even be moving to another country. I feel there is a whole new beginning for you soon and I also feel you will meet your soulmate when you least expect it. They do show me your soulmate shares a similar life purpose to you.

  7. Inger Bråthen November 6, 2017 at 3:39 pm

    Ace of swords when it represents someone means the person is very factual, deals with the truth, is a very good communicator often, and she most likely has a very good head on her shoulder. If you ask her how she feels she will tell you the truth.

  8. Anthony November 7, 2017 at 8:47 pm

    Thank you, Inger. Indeed I have feeling lately that something big will come next year and change my life a lot. But also at the same time, I’m scared for not being able to get out from my current situation. I plan to quit my current job because I don’t feel fit anymore with this company. But it’s really hard to get out and being single for years make it worse. I told you before I got 3 of Pentacles, The Fool, and 5 of Swords regarding my career. Scared and confused about what to do

  9. Rickey November 8, 2017 at 11:15 pm

    Thankx Inger. Wouldn’t this combination mean that she has clarity what she “thinks” of me? while I am the ace of cups(overflowing with feelings of love emotions) and she being the ace of swords mean that everything with her hasn’t gotten to feelingsyet? she is a Libra by the way…

  10. Inger Bråthen November 11, 2017 at 3:26 pm

    She is a very cerebral person and she will process everything carefully before she makes up here mind about how she feels, if that makes any sense 🙂

  11. Inger Bråthen November 11, 2017 at 3:58 pm

    Hi, Anthony. Your cards indicate you can adapt to any situation and you have many skills and talents. I feel you will do very well in business, especially a lifestyle business.
