    Hi. I feel like you were very intuitive when you made your decision to end it as I am feeling this person was not right for you.

  7. Lexington June 9, 2017 at 5:19 pm

    Hi inger,
    I’m contemplating whether I should stay in my current relationship or move on and I got the ace of cups the 7 of pentacles reversed and 4 of wands. Can you interpret this please.

  8. Inger Bråthen June 11, 2017 at 7:00 am

    7 of pentacles is showing up reversed when something is draining on our resources, and in your case, it could be this relationship. Your heart might not be in it anymore due to the stress…..

  9. Katie August 12, 2017 at 1:57 pm

    Hi Inger,
    Firstly, thank you for giving your time to answer everyone’s questions.

    I pulled three cards asking about a special person who I have unexplainable feelings for and where I stand with him, is he truly and genuinely interested in a future with me.
    This is what my cards gave me:

    1) Where do I stand with him: Ace of Cups
    2) How does he currently feel about me: Page of Pentacles
    3) Is he interested in a future with me: The Hierophant

    Thank you in advance,

  10. Inger Bråthen August 12, 2017 at 4:39 pm

    Hi. Page of pentacles means he thinks you are very beautiful. The Hierophant can mean he is ready for a commitment and wants to get to know you better.

  11. J August 19, 2017 at 12:50 pm

    Hi Inger!

    I cannot stress enough how extremely helpful your interpretations and this website have been in helping us understand tarot and tarot card combinations.

    For a reading I did, I got the overall theme of 4 of Wands but the clarifying cards were:
    Page of Wands (reversed)
    10 of Pentacles (reversed)

    I’d love to know your interpretation!

    Thank you!

  12. Inger Bråthen August 23, 2017 at 3:49 pm

    Even though the cards are reversed, I feel there is a lot of fulfillment in your life at this point. Someone is hurting, and I feel you will help this person. There is a new beginning and I feel you will forgive someone and have an emotional renewal.

  13. Corina September 27, 2017 at 6:04 am

    Hi inger,
    I completed a 3 card spread asking how someone I care for but will not currently speak to me feels for me. I have no clue how to interpret the answer. The cards are 4 of wands, 8 of cups, and 10 of cups. Please help! Thank you!

  14. Tawny Key September 28, 2017 at 4:24 am

    hi Inger,

    i made a spead past present and future with three cards in each and one overall card to give meaning to the four of wands. i think its an event im supposed to attend or something at this point. when i ask timing i get it, when i ask career, ive dropped it out several times. this will be life purpose thing, i think, and i need to understand.

    death, 8 wands, 10 cups
    4 cups
    judgement, star, 2 swords
    8 cups
    10 swords, empress, ace wands
    4 wands

    bottom card is page of swords.

    i think the past is my childhood was followed by homelessness and i made a family that didnt last. i was keeping myself hidden and suffered from depression.
    present i had a wakeup call and can begin to move on and search for something that brings me balance. i begin to dig deep into my psyche for truth.
    the future
    i will stop being a victim and become my highest and best self in a new beginning where i am appreciated in my community for writing? maybe.

    all of that may or may not be but what the heck is this four of wands im so stressed about it its blocked. coyld it be a stage? please help!! and much love, Tawny

  15. Inger Bråthen October 1, 2017 at 1:02 pm

    Looks like this person is taking some time out to deal with some changes in their life, I feel there have been changes in this person’s career and life direction and this person is re-examining life in many ways. 4 of wands next to 8 of cups can mean this person was dissatisfied with how life was going and wanted a more soulful life. 10 of cups also speaks of this person being on a spiritual journey now and is learning to look at things from a new perspective.

  16. Inger Bråthen October 2, 2017 at 6:13 pm

    Hi, Tawny. 10 of swords shows up when we realise that something we really believed in turned out to be a very limiting belief that hold you back, and once you release it, you will have your abundance (the empress) and your energy will come back (ace of wands). You will feel a lot more confident. You have been through a lot and you will be able to use all your life experience and wisdom to help others. You are a very independent person, and now you are learning to trust again and to let people into your life that are the right type of people. 🙂

  17. Tata October 2, 2017 at 9:20 pm

    Hi Inger!

    Currently I have dilemma whether to stay or quit my current job. The cards show as:
    – 4 wands
    – Reversed 7 pentacles
    – 6 swords

    Does it means I have to stay and be more considerate with my current job?
    Thank you very much

  18. Inger Bråthen October 4, 2017 at 10:18 pm

    Hi, Tata. 7 of pentacles reversed can mean you are not being rewarded for the job you do, and other people could even take the credit for your hard work. I think you should manifest a new job where you are appreciated. Write down what type of people you want to work with, and write down the most important goals you want to achieve in your career, then send up a prayer to the Creator to bring you the job with the best people and exciting opportunities for you, and that this happens in the highest and best way, with grace in ease 🙂

  19. Embee October 7, 2017 at 11:40 pm

    Hi I was doing reading how my relationship progress with my new boyfriend. We are seeing each other but not yet things official. Pulled out 4 of wands and a fool. What does this cards mean? Thanks

  20. Inger Bråthen October 8, 2017 at 1:28 pm

    This card combination means that you will enjoy dating and have fun together. Enjoy this time you have now because this is a special time in your relationship.

  21. Tara October 16, 2017 at 2:25 am

    Hi Inga I did a spread for myself can you explain what it means I am getting my own home but what does it mean as a cross why is there a delay on this move. Can you tell me how to follow the arrows as I do not understand
    1 seven of cups

    3 the world
    4page of pentacles
    5 king of swords
    6 queen of wands
    7 ten of cups
    8 six of swords
    9 sx of cups

  22. Inger Bråthen October 16, 2017 at 5:28 pm

    Nine of Pentacles means you will find a beautiful home, and the double 6 vibration in this layout means you will most likely find a place you can do up yourself. The world denotes your soul is guiding you to this place. It will be a very special place.

  23. Tata October 18, 2017 at 5:10 pm

    Hi Inger. Just want to say you are right. Thank you for your previous reply. Seeking for new employment now, wish me luck.

  24. Chrisina November 5, 2017 at 11:12 pm

    5 four of wands
    6 wheel of fortune

  25. Inger Bråthen November 6, 2017 at 4:14 pm

    Hi Christina. You are currently learning to trust. To trust in yourself and in life and that everything will come together. I feel you will meet your soulmate in what will ‘seem’ like total destiny. You will be in the right place and the right time. The man I see for you is described in the cards as King of cups. I pulled some cards for you as well and I got your soulmate is King of Pentacles. It is the same man, and what King of cups and King of pentacles have in common is that they are very emotionally mature and strong in character. This is someone who has strong values, someone you can trust and depend on in good times and in bad. I also feel that this is someone you will travel a lot with. You got two travel cards; eight of wands and knight of wands. When I laid out the cards for you I got eight of wands as the destiny of relationship, so there will be a lot of fun and a lot of adventure. I feel the man you will meet will be financially secure and you will be able to do a lot of fun things together. This is someone you will be able to be YOURSELF with and that is what has been missing I feel from previous relationships. 🙂
