    i am quite new to tarot cards. so to predict the time of an event, should we just pull one card or make a spread.

  2. Inger Bråthen March 28, 2017 at 11:35 am

    Pull one card per month and when you see the cards that have the meaning that denotes what you are manifesting show up, this is when it is most likely to happen. 🙂

    Hi inger,

    When you pull one card per month, what cards should you be looking to show up for getting the job of your dreams and meeting your soulmate?

  4. Inger Bråthen July 7, 2017 at 7:32 pm

    The Sun often means the dream job. The Magician often represents your soulmate.

    Hi Inger, I live in the Southern Hemisphere (New Zealand) and often wonder if the suits of the minor arcana depict the seasons as per the Rider Waite Deck, from the illustrations?
    According to the above list, the Five of pentacles ~ April 21 to April 30 is our Autumn but the card has a Winter scene.
    Do you have a system of timing events from the scenes on the cards or their specific suit?
    I have tried to research this but their are too many contradictions and I can’t decide.
    Thank you very much for your time.

  6. Inger Bråthen July 20, 2017 at 8:03 pm

    Hi, Pamela. The minor arcana cards get their dates from their link to Astrology. 🙂 When you do a timing of an event, it is a good idea to decide before you lay out the cards if you are going to use the dates or use the illustrations. In my experience, the cards will use illustrations unless you specifically ask to be shown using the dates…:)

  7. Shalu July 25, 2017 at 3:59 pm

    Hi …is there any time associated with aces and court cards

  8. Inger Bråthen July 30, 2017 at 1:01 pm

    The Pages are associated with seasons: http://www.tarotwikipedia.com/time-events-using-tarot/ …. The suit of swords from ace to ten of swords are associated with years…from 1-10 years.

  9. Pamela Muir August 1, 2017 at 10:11 am

    Hi Inger,

    Thank you SO much for clarifying the timing situation for me (July 20, 2017 at 8:03 pm), I didn’t realize the reply would turn up on your page (thought it might be an email). You are a wonderful person and I really appreciate the time you have taken to help!


  10. Inger Bråthen August 3, 2017 at 4:34 pm

    You are very welcome, Pamela. Thank you for your feedback 😀

    Hi Inger, Thanks so much for this great website and for being so active and helpful with it!
    I’ve tried a few of your spreads, and combined with others as well since recently getting back into tarot there seems to be a strong suggestion of a meeting someone soon. Your 6 month spread gave me the lovers + Queen Sw. & Knight Sw. in the “Unexpected” column, and the two of cups + Knight cups + Ace Wands in 2nd position (other people??), then 1-3 months got 3 swords (Ouch??) + Qu. Wands + Empress – then 4-6mths – Emperor + Hierophant + 10 Pents. – I’ve not been sure if Empress and Emperor mean my parents?

    But also did Soul mate spread (the first one) – and got Two Cups + Hermit in position 7 = destiny
    For the blocks all looked good

    Then did Twin flame spread, also looked very positive – I did two cards for each, got Ace Cups + Page Sw. Pos 1 (Am I ready) then Emperor + 9 cups for Pos 2 (is she) – then for “When” I got Strength + 2 of Pents.

    My question is – Strength says above July 23-Aug22 when sun is in Leo – which could be any minute! lol… but also you say pentacles are years – so does this mean while Sun is in Leo in two years? But then it also gives the 22nd-30th December — but I assume the Major card would take precedence? Or could this mean there is a soul mate soon but twin later?? (seems unlikely? But the 3 of swords was a bit disheartening – although I have actually recently had a heartbreak with a Q. of W. and I assumed it meant getting the last of that out of my system)

    Also for “where” I got the Magician + 3 of Pents. I took this to mean at university/work, which would make sense. but is there another meaning for magician to do with place?

    thanks again.

  12. Inger Bråthen August 9, 2017 at 2:57 pm

    Hi, Craig. Three of swords means healing from your last relationship, as you said, and all the court cards denote new people coming into your life that you will have a strong connection with. The best way to time event is to use the suit of swords. Here is a link that explains how to do it: http://www.tarotwikipedia.com/time-events-using-tarot/

    Hi. If doing a Celtic cross spread about if I’ll ever get into acting or get that opportunity I got a lot of major arcana and a couple aces, would that mean it’s something that could happen? What kind of cards tell of that

  14. Anthony Wright September 20, 2017 at 11:17 pm

    Hi Inger, I did a reading on my ex who broke my heart when she dumped me back in mid July. I asked, What does she think about me past, present and future? Past, 2 of Wands (which has come up for me in many readings recently), Present, Temperance, Future, The Tower. Also, I don’t actually reverse cards when shuffling them anymore, I leave them all upright and when I reveal them I just get a feeling whether or not they should be read reversed meaning or not. I’m having a hard time figuring out what this means because I’m too emotionally involved. Can you please shed some light for me?

  15. Inger Bråthen September 21, 2017 at 8:20 am

    The best cards to get when it comes to getting into acting are knight of cups, 6 of pentacles, and Wheel of fortune. 🙂

  16. Inger Bråthen September 21, 2017 at 8:29 am

    She seems to in harmony and at peace with everything now, however, in the future, you got the tower which means she will be very upset at something. Have you done the what does she feel about me spread?

  17. Jessicaa September 27, 2017 at 12:45 am

    Hi there. I am new to this and was looking for some help or clarification if I am reading the cards correctly.

    So I asked what does he think/feel towards me and I got the Sun. I am assuming he has positive thoughts for me.
    I asked how he felt about the relationship and I got the 5 of wands. I’m assuming he feels like we had a lot of minor arguments and “tiffs” which is true due to his being distant and emotionally disconnected at times.
    I asked what stands between us and I got the Death card. I’m assuming that means something along the lines of a new beginning for us? Like a transformation?
    I asked what he wants in the future with me and I got the Magician. I do believe the magician represents soulmate? So does he have strong feelings for me that he feels like I am his soulmate?
    I asked what I needed to do and I pulled the 6 of cups. I know this is connected with past life love/memories/nostalgia so I don’t understand what I need to do with a card in regards to the past.
    I asked should I contact and I pulled the 3 of penticales which I do believe this card would be telling me yes but I still feel hesitant because we haven’t talked since June 2nd and fear rejections.
    Finally I asked when HE will contact me and as I was shuffling the card kind of “jumped” out of the deck and it was the magician again. So the magician cycle or time from above is 88 days so does that mean within 88 days or exactly 88days. I appreciate you taking the time to read and helping me if you can. Thank you!

  18. Inger Bråthen October 1, 2017 at 12:34 pm

    Hi. The magician means he will contact you because this is the card for communication. The death card can mean that you are very different people who think in very different ways which is what caused problems with the communication in the first place. If he does contact you, take things slow and see if you can establish a friendship with him without putting so much pressure on yourself. 🙂

    Hi, When I asked a specific time/date question I dealt the Ace of Swords. What does this mean?

  20. Inger Bråthen October 8, 2017 at 1:01 pm

    Hi. Ace of swords usually means within 1 year.
