    I did a reading for myself to see if I will reconcile with my partner and got the magician, ace of cups, 10 of cups, and 6 of wands. Those are all good cards to have correct?

  2. Inger Bråthen January 3, 2017 at 11:48 pm

    Hi, Rose. They are very good cards to get. 🙂

  3. Rosie January 16, 2017 at 12:40 am

    Inger, what exactly do those cards say about the relationship? Magician, 10 of cups, ace of cups, and 6 of wands. Do I also have to read the cards that are related in astrology? Thanks!

  4. Jerica Williams January 16, 2017 at 3:16 am

    I did a past present future reading asking where things will lead with my love interest and got three of swords reversed as the past, six of wands as the present, and page of cups as the future?
    Could this mean that the start of a romance is about to take place?

  5. Inger Bråthen January 16, 2017 at 4:52 pm

    Hi, Jerica. This is a great card combination to get. I believe you will soon be dating someone who has a pure heart, and you will have great communication.

    Hello Inger,

    Firstly I’m sure all of us appreciate sites that provide helpful insights so thanks as this site is great! 🙂

    I wondered if you could help me? I didn’t do a specific spread but I wanted to know the context of a relationship or a potential relationship from mere college acquaintance to love interest? I pulled 6 of wands first and knight of cups to clarify?

    What would you say to this?

  7. Emma May 31, 2017 at 6:01 am

    Hello Inger,

    I was wondering if you could help me?

    I didn’t do a specific spread but I aked about the context of a relationship or potential relation ship of mere acquaintance to love interest?

    I pulled 6 of wands and knight of cups to clarify?

    What would you say about this?

  8. Inger Bråthen May 31, 2017 at 10:03 am

    Hi. I like this card combination. I do however think you will become good friends, and possibly stay as good friends for a while.

  9. Emma May 31, 2017 at 6:37 pm

    Hi Inger,
    Thanks for getting back to me. You said we may be good friends for a while but do the cards show anything romantic after that while?


  10. Inger Bråthen May 31, 2017 at 7:11 pm

    I feel there is potential there, but I also feel the presence of someone else in this person’s life.

  11. Emma June 2, 2017 at 3:06 am

    I’m not sure if it sent?

    Do you think that the cards say that anything could happen after being friends? and what particularly makes you think this?

  12. Emma June 2, 2017 at 5:38 am


  13. AS June 4, 2017 at 11:42 pm

    hi Inger
    I got Six of wands and clarifier Fve of swords mean for an relationship outcome
    what does it mean

  14. Jen June 9, 2017 at 12:28 am

    Hi Inger,

    Could the 6 of Wands reversed also mean not getting recognition for something you’ve created even though it’s still successful?

    I’m in the process of writing a book, however, I’m using a pen name.

    The 6 of wands reversed was drawn, in the month I plan to release my book. Is it possible that the six of wands reversed could represent some success but not public recognition because I’m not using my real name?

    Also, the 7 of swords (reversed) came up next to it. I know it’s the card of deceit, could the “deceit” be because I’m not using my real name and I’m not really telling anyone one about it (except my mom and father). Other than them, no one else will know I wrote the book.

    I also got the 3 of wands (in the regular position, not reversed) as well.

    I look forward to your response, thank you as always!

  15. Inger Bråthen June 11, 2017 at 6:26 am

    Hi, Jen. Yes absolutely. You could be fearing success as well and wanting to stay out of the spotlight. 🙂 When 7 of swords show up it often means that people will find out something, so if you have been using a pen name, it could be that people other than your parents will know about your real name. 3 of wands speaks of your writing talents and also you can earn money as a freelance writer too.

  16. Betty June 12, 2017 at 8:01 am

    Hi Inger,

    I’ve decided to study and journal each card individually and the 6 of Wands was my first pull. Your overview was very helpful. Is there a book/site that you would recommend for a person that would like an in depth analysis of each card?

    Any significance of me pulling this card first? It’s such a positive card!

    Thank You!

  17. Inger Bråthen June 14, 2017 at 9:57 am

    If you want to study the cards, I recommend doing what you are doing now, with a journal. You are creating your own connection to the cards. One book that really helped me was the healing tarot deck with book….
    The reason this book is so good is that it really explains the astrological link with tarot and it gives an in-depth understanding of the tarot cards 🙂

  18. Ben September 21, 2017 at 1:57 am

    Hi Inger, was hoping you could give me some advice on the cards i pulled for my current relationship, its hasnt been easy lately and wanted to see if there is light at the end of the tunnel.. any advice on the below? 😊

    Current situation – king of cups
    Challenge – king of swords
    Advice – 2 of cups
    Outcome – 6 of wands

  19. Inger Bråthen September 21, 2017 at 6:50 am

    Hi. Yes there is light at the end of the tunnel as 6 of wands speaks of success. King of swords as the challenge can mean that someone is not quite what they seem and could be causing some problems in your relationship on purpose. Advice is 2 of cups which speaks of you focusing on your relationship and any manipulators will be seen through.

  20. Helena Samu October 20, 2017 at 1:13 pm

    HI! What are my crush feelings about our relationship, but wont say it, if the cards are: Magician, Queen of Cups and Six of Wands?Thank you! HS

  21. Inger Bråthen October 21, 2017 at 9:55 pm

    Hi. This person needs something to change in his life so that he can be more of what he wants to become. I feel he is not yet where he wants to be in his life and this could cause him some frustrations. There has been some heartache in his life and he can come across as very confident, but I feel he is a bit insecure about showing how he feels. He could be very afraid of rejection.

  22. Helena Samu November 6, 2017 at 5:51 pm

    Thank U Inger! Love:HS
