    Hello again and thanks for your help last time!! I have been doing a lot of soul searching and focusing on making myself spiritually, physically and mentally fit. I did this spread and my cards came out as follows – 5 of pentacles, emperor, king of wands, 9 of pentacles, page of swords, 8 of swords, 4 of swords, strength and 10 of wands. This describes my situation quite accurately, however I’m having difficulty with the last card, outcome! Your wisdom is very much appreciated! Thanks so much again for your time 🙂

    Hi Inger!

    Here’s what I got:

    1) The World – I feel he’s the one
    2) Strength & 3) 8 of Pentacles – It took much strength and work to try and maintain the union
    4) 6 of Wands – continue to move forward
    5) 6 of cups – karmic lesson or the past
    6) Queen of Wands – yes there’s someone new
    7) The Sun & 8) Queen of Swords – new way of communicating
    9) Justice – Balance

  4. Inger Bråthen May 3, 2017 at 10:24 am

    Hi, Nicole. Queen of wands can mean he has met someone else. If you were to get back together, you could be dealing with the same issues as you did before.

  5. Mitchell May 3, 2017 at 2:52 pm

    1. 4 of cups- regret not taking the love that he was giving me
    2&3. 8 of wands & Queen of Pentacles – our relationship was fast and I held it together, traditional
    4. 2 of wands- have personal power- idk –
    5. 5 of swords -I argued over the little things- i should have let it go
    6. Knight of swords- idk is this him or someone else?? maybe he has been thinking about me and wants to say something.
    7&8. The empress and the fool- we will have a new lease on the relationship
    9. 3 of cups- maybe we might get back together

  6. Inger Bråthen May 4, 2017 at 7:13 am

    Yes, you could have another chance together. 🙂 You could write him a letter….

  7. Mirko May 4, 2017 at 2:31 pm

    Hi Inger, I think maybe my last comment didn’t appear. Or maybe you haven’t had time to get to all comments, if so forgive me!

    1. 5 of pentacles – Feeling frustrated, rejected, I didn’t get the chance to show here the ‘real’ me.
    2. Emperor – Not sure here, could it mean spirituality?
    3. King of wands – Energetic, open and adventurous.
    4. 9 of pentacles – I must show restraint, have discipline over my impulses – so true!!
    5. Page of swords – I have not been too honest about my feelings and communicated badly in the past.
    6. 8 of swords – She is confused and ‘blind’ at the moment, it’s not something she is thinking about or strongly considering.
    7. 4 of swords – A much more inward- looking, respectful and understanding future.
    8. Strength – Enduring, respectful, triumphant!
    9. 10 of wands – Really not sure of this, could it mean I am willing to take on some of the burden?

  8. Inger Bråthen May 5, 2017 at 7:22 am

    Hi, yes she is confused and not sure if she wants to get back together. Page of swords as the main obstacle can denote neither of you are ready for a deep commitment, or if you are in a deep commitment, you must give each other a lot of personal freedom.

  9. Misty May 9, 2017 at 11:55 pm

    Hi, your ex seems to be quite stubborn and if you do get back together it can create some confusion around what you really want deep down.

  12. Misty May 12, 2017 at 10:14 am

    HI Inger, is the response about the stubborn ex for me? Thank you

    Hi Inger,

    I was wondering if you would be able to be able to interpret my will I get back with my ex spread.

    I had:
    1. Nine of cups
    2&3 Four of wands and Ace of Swords
    4. Two of pentacles
    5. Hierophant
    6. High Priestess (I can’t figure out if there is someone else)
    7 & 8. Judgement and Eight of Swords
    9. Four of Pentacles

  17. Sita June 6, 2017 at 1:51 pm

    Hi, Inger! I need your help with this. Thank you.
    So, will i get back with my ex?

    1.Ace of cups
    2.4 of cups
    3.10 of pentacles
    4.Knight of swords
    5.5 of swords
    6.The moon
    7.5 of wands
    8.7 of cups
    9.The lovers

    The card at the bottom of the deck was 4 of pentacles.

  18. Inger Bråthen June 7, 2017 at 5:26 am

    I think you will. Work on your communication which will help you stay together, or you could be breaking up again. 5 of wands with 7 of cups can mean the relationship will be on and off unless you find a way to move forward together. The Lovers denotes you will have a chance to reconnect and possibly even getting back together.

  19. Sita June 7, 2017 at 6:16 am

    Thank you so much.
    We were on and off from the start and there is no communication (again). But this time not becouse of his work, i walk away because he hurt me so much, but i still think about him every day. And there is one big problem. I don’t want him back, but i am afraid that i would change my mind when i saw him. AND i am with another man now, but i don’t trust him :(. I really love him, but i’ve got that feeling that i am not the only one in his life, but I love both of them. So if i have to choose … I can’t :S
    If there is 2 man, you love both of them … how do i know who is the right one for me? I am so confused :(((

  20. Inger Bråthen June 8, 2017 at 4:08 pm

    There is a possibility that none of the guys is the right one. You need to be with someone you can trust completely.

  21. Sita June 8, 2017 at 4:56 pm

    You are so right. Deep down i know that both of them are wrong for me, but i still love them. Why?? I don’t want to :(((
    Thank you again.

  22. Inger Bråthen June 8, 2017 at 5:04 pm

    A soulmate manifestation is most recommended. Write down on a list everything you would like in your soulmate and start praying that your highest and best, most compatible, divine soulmate comes into your life and is ready to make a commitment to you 🙂

  23. Sita June 9, 2017 at 2:09 am

    Thank you so much :). I will do that. But first i have to tell him that is over. It is so hard :/

  24. Hanah July 20, 2017 at 12:33 pm

    Hi Inner,

    I got the following:
    1. The high priestess
    2. Five of swords
    3. Page of swords
    4. Knight of swords
    5. Ace of pentacles
    6. Four of swords
    7. Three of pentacles
    8. Eight of pentacles
    9. Queen of wands

    Can you please help me interpret the meaning? Thank you so much.

  25. Hanah July 20, 2017 at 1:35 pm

    Hi Inner, my situation is a bit different. We were on a two weeks break and when we get back after that period, he was still confused and after 2 more weeks, he told me he want to start over, just be friends for now. I asked for a second chance but finally accept if we break up. But then he told me he stills make up his mind. To me it seems like we broke up but he insisted he just need time. I was so confused and I picked the 9 cards above. Can you please help me or guide me to which tarot reading i need? Thank you!

  26. Inger Bråthen July 20, 2017 at 8:00 pm

    There are no cups in this reading which can mean there is a lack of feelings. I think he really likes you, but this man is a bit shut down emotionally and it could be a lot of work to get this relationship up and running. You do have good communication and this can help you move forward, however, it can be difficult due to this person being emotionally unavailable.

  27. Yuri July 23, 2017 at 2:14 am

    Hi Inner,

    I got the following, can you please help me:
    1. 4 of pentacles
    2. 6 of wands
    3. Queen of pentacles
    4. 9 of swords
    5. Ace of cups
    6. Knight of wands
    7. The devil
    8. Queen of cups
    9. King of cups

  28. Inger Bråthen July 25, 2017 at 11:40 am

    Hi, Yuri. I feel like you could get back with your ex, just make sure you are wanting to get back with your ex for reasons of love, and not because you just want to feel safe and secure 🙂

  29. ryoko September 25, 2017 at 10:46 pm

  30. mari September 27, 2017 at 12:37 pm

    Hi Inger, I’m confused with my last card. All other cards make so much sense to me, but I can’t really understand the last one. Would you help me, please?
    1. The Sun
    2. The world
    3. Two of swords
    4. Two of wands
    5. Five of pentacles
    6. The High Priestess – he’s with someone :,(
    7. Justice
    8. King of Cups
    9. Nine of swords

    Thank you!

  31. Inger Bråthen October 1, 2017 at 12:04 pm

    Hi. I think you should move on because hierophant reversed often shows up when there is lack of security within the relationship and devil with moon reversed indicate you will not be very happy in this relationship. The star speaks of a lot of spiritual awareness coming out of this relationship, and I feel you will learn a lot about yourself. Hanged man reversed means you need to look at this relationship from a new perspective because this relationship was meant to teach you something very important about yourself, especially about your destiny and what you are meant to do with your life. The most important card here is the Hermit card which speaks of looking within and having real insight into your self and your soul and asking yourself all the big questions about what gives your life meaning. Your soul is calling out for a deep and meaningful and soulful relationship with someone you can really trust.

  32. Ryoko October 2, 2017 at 12:58 am

    Wow:) thank you very much, Inger!
    This actually makes sense to me. I love your reading and your pages:)

  33. Inger Bråthen October 2, 2017 at 3:30 pm

    🙂 You are very welcome! 🙂

  34. Inger Bråthen October 2, 2017 at 6:09 pm

    Hi. Was your relationship difficult? The world can often show up when there are some difficult life lessons attached to it that deeply affects you on a soul level. Nine of swords as final card can mean this relationship would cause you a lot of stress and angst, and it might not be for your highest and best.
