In need of advice (please)



  • I did a spread about me and a guy. I'm interested in him and he said he's interested in me.

    I got the following:

    1. How I see the other person - 3 of swords

    2. How the other person sees me - 2 of swords

    3. What I need - ace of pentacles

    4. What the other person needs - Queen of Swords

    5. Where the relationship is now - 10 of swords

    6.Where I would like the relationship to go - Queen of Pentacles

    7. Where the other person would like the relationship to go - The Magician

    8. Factors to be considered - The Fool

    9. The end result - The High Priestess

    Here's my interpretation of the cards -

    1. I'm disappointed because he's not my "ideal" man. I think he could be a heartbreaker.

    2. He sees me as a potential partner. He thinks I'd make a good partner.

    3. I need to get out and meet more people. I need a new beginning. Maybe I need our relationship to reach better heights.

    4. He needs a firm ally - someone to stand by him and protect his heart. He needs to be honest and to fight for what he wants and needs.

    5. The end of an era. I'm not sure if this card means that our relationship will be better, or if it means I should keep looking for other people as this guy isn't right for me.

    6. I want to shower him with affection. I want a relationship with him but I don't want to have to chase him.

    7. I'm not sure if this is a positive omen for us or not.

    8. Every new opportunity carries a risk.

    9. I need to follow my intuition - the problem is i don't actually know what my intuition is telling me! All I know is that I'm drawn to this guy!

    I don't know if I should throw in the towel or not. Can anyone else think of any other interpretations of the cards?Your help would be much appreciated! I really don't know what to do.

    Thanks for reading 🙂



  • MagicandSparkles,

    1. How I see the other person - 3 of swords: you think he wants to escape.

    2. How the other person sees me - 2 of swords: he sees you as being indecisive.

    3. What I need - ace of pentacles: you need to be more receptive for the gift of existence.

    4. What the other person needs - Queen of Swords: he needs to be dominated by the mind of a woman, until he becomes aware of how he projects his mother on his girlfriend.

    5. Where the relationship is now - 10 of swords: on the rocks, destroyed by your hopes.

    6.Where I would like the relationship to go - Queen of Pentacles: You want to dominate him with your money to feel secure by being in possession of him.

    7. Where the other person would like the relationship to go - The Magician: to help him to overcome his being afraid of death and his fear of the community he once had loved.

    8. Factors to be considered - The Fool: the hoarded knowledge of your brain. It is influencing you too much.

    9. The end result - The High Priestess: you will be thrown back to yourself, into yourself, to learn to trust more your intuition, and that is good so.

    Here's my interpretation of the cards -

    1. I'm disappointed because he's not my "ideal" man. I think he could be a heartbreaker: I agree.

    2. He sees me as a potential partner. He thinks I'd make a good partner: No, I would agree if it would be Two of Cups, but not with Two of swords.

    3. I need to get out and meet more people. I need a new beginning. Maybe I need our relationship to reach better heights: No, I would agree with Ten of Pentacles, but this is the Ace, it comes of its own, you have just to be receptive of it.

    4. He needs a firm ally - someone to stand by him and protect his heart. He needs to be honest and to fight for what he wants and needs: No, maybe if it would be page of swords, but not the queen, she is too dominant.

    5. The end of an era. I'm not sure if this card means that our relationship will be better, or if it means I should keep looking for other people as this guy isn't right for me: right, it means: you should keep looking for other people as this guy isn't right for you.

    6. I want to shower him with affection. I want a relationship with him but I don't want to have to chase him: no, not with the queen, and not with pentacles. Maybe if it would be Cups, but the queen of pentacles wants security (I don't want to have to chase him, that means in reality: I want to possess him), because she is possessive.

    7. I'm not sure if this is a positive omen for us or not: neither nor, it is male energy.

    8. Every new opportunity carries a risk: no, let go of your possessiveness, of wanting to be secure, follow your energy and trust life. The fool is not afraid of any risk, that´s why the call him fool, because he trusts life, and society teaches you to mistrust life.

    9. I need to follow my intuition - the problem is i don't actually know what my intuition is telling me! All I know is that I'm drawn to this guy!: right! It is about intuition!

    I don't know if I should throw in the towel or not: neither nor.

    Can anyone else think of any other interpretations of the cards? Yes, see above!

    Your help would be much appreciated: Love does not mean to be secure, to possess someone, love makes you able to forget all about that, otherwise it is not love.

    I really don't know what to do: be the local hero. Stand on your integrity, no matter what ill winds may blast you. Stand or fall, in the end you will remain exactly who you are.

    Thanks for reading 🙂 : this is by far the very best written presentation of a reading, I have seen here on this forum. I would very much appreciate if every questioner (at least for such a reading) would take this as an example, how one should invite someone to answer and to comment on one´s own reading.

    MagicandSparkles,

    Maggie was bemoaning her hard luck to her friend

    Tilly. The story she told was a real heartbreaker.

    It seems Maggie was coming home late from work and

    when she was only a few blocks from her home a shiny

    new Cadillac convertible drew up alongside her. In it

    was one of the handsomest young men Maggie had ever

    seen. He whistled at Maggie. "Baby, would you mind my

    company tonight?" he asked.

    Maggie drew herself up. "On your way, mister," she

    snapped.

    The young man stopped the car and got out. He seemed

    contrite.

    "Don't take offence," he said to Maggie. "You see, I

    just broke up with my girl. I'm lonesome. I want to go

    out to dinner, to a nightclub, to dance. And you looked

    so pretty, so sweet, I just couldn't resist asking

    you."

    Maggie didn't trust herself. The guy was too

    goodlooking, the situation too attractive. Maggie

    didn't think it was okay.

    "Tell you what," she said to the young man, "would you

    still want to date me tomorrow?"

    "Sure," replied the young man.

    "Take my phone number. Call me tomorrow. I'll tell you

    then."

    "You've got a date," said the guy. Maggie gave him the

    phone number. The guy hopped back into his car. "Look

    real nice for me," he said and pressed something into

    her hand. Then he drove away.

    "You see," Maggie told her friend Tilly, "when I opened

    my hand, I saw he'd put a hundred dollar bill into it."

    "So what's there to cry about?" asked the puzzled

    Tilly.

    "Because," sobbed Maggie, "I gave him the wrong phone

    number!"



  • Thanks for your reply. You've certainly given me things to think about 🙂



  • MagicandSparkles,

    I do not want to make you think. I do not want to

    fill you with borrowed things. I don't want you to

    think but to be intuitively aware. I want you to give up thinking and

    see. And then see what happens. Advance from thinking

    to seeing. This alone will lead you to the truth and to

    the real capital, to the real wealth that is your own.

    How this process of seeing-without-thinking removes the

    curtain from the mystery cannot be known without

    actually doing it yourself.



  • Thanks, I'll definitely try to pay more attention to my intuition 🙂



  • MagicandSparkles,

    wait. It is going to happen within a week -- count

    seven days! That too is part of your cowardice,

    nothing else!... Otherwise you could do it right now, but

    just the cowardly mind.... Wait! Good!



  • Hey,

    I'm not sure I understand...What is going to happen within a week?



  • MagicandSparkles

    Hey,

    What is going to happen within a week? "That too is part of your cowardice,

    nothing else!... Otherwise you could do it right now, but

    just the cowardly mind.... Wait!"

    Wait, you are not yet ready to understand it.

    We need in the world more creativity to balance the destructive forces. We need in the world more intuitive people to balance the blind politicians. For this there is still time enough, because intuition can happen within a second. It does not need time; it needs only a total longing for it, a longing as if your life is at risk.



  • Ok, I shall wait. Thanks for your insight 😄



  • MagicandSparkles,

    look out for the arrow!



  • I see that a lot of people on here think very highly of you. Are you psychic?How long have you been reading tarot cards?



  • MagicandSparkles,

    are you psychic? yes.

    How long have you been reading tarot cards? Since thirty years.

    Intuition is something which you have seen, which has

    been revealed to you, which has become your own

    experience, which you have encountered. A doctrine is

    almost imaginary, it is not real. A doctrine is almost

    always borrowed. You can hide your borrowing in many

    ways -- subtle, cunning ways. You can reformulate, you

    can take from many sources and you can rearrange

    everything, but a doctrine is a borrowed thing --

    nothing original in it.



  • Hi Hans,

    Thanks for all your help. What was supposed to happen in 7 days? It probably did happen - maybe i missed it?

    Magic and Sparkles



  • MagicandSparkles,

    Hi,

    What was supposed to happen in 7 days? Love.

    It probably did happen - maybe i missed it? No, the seed has sprouted, but maybe you will only feel it, when it will flower.

    Magic and Sparkles,

    in the center, there is something that is

    nonchanging. But that is in the center. When you move

    in, you move into a changing world, into a fluxlike,

    dreamy world where everything is constantly changing.

    If you can pass through this changing world of dreams,

    words, thoughts, past memories, future projections --

    where everything is changing, fluid, fluxlike -- if you

    can pass through it, then one day you can come to the

    center.



  • Love ? am I supposed to have met someone? or do you mean love in general?

    How can I speed up the process of getting to the center?

    I'm so sorry for taking up your time - I am really confused. I do appreciate your help.



  • MagicandSparkles,

    Love ? No.

    am I supposed to have met someone? no.

    or do you mean love in general? no.

    How can I speed up the process of getting to the center? By letting fall your ego down, because ego functions like a stonewall around your center.

    I do appreciate your help: you are in the eye of the hurricane.

    There is an old tibetan story.... A man was a great

    seeker of knowledge and he accumulated all the books

    that were possible. He went to China, he came to India,

    he went to Afghanistan. Far and wide he travelled, and

    he collected all sorts of books. It was very difficult

    in those old days but he made a big library. He had no

    time to read, he was always travelling. He was always

    thinking, 'Next year I will stop -- now I have enough

    books, and I have to read them.' Then he started

    becoming afraid also, because life was running out of

    the hands and he had accumulated such a big library --

    when was he going to read it?

    He became nervous and to avoid that nervousness he

    started moving even faster and even to faraway lands to

    accumulate more. When he came back home after his last

    trip, his physician said, 'Now you cannot live more

    than seven days.'

    And he said, 'But this is unfair! I have accumulated

    all this big library -- nearly fifty thousand books! In

    seven days what am I going to do? Do something!'

    Somebody suggested, 'Find many scholars -- they

    should read the books and they will summarise. Then you

    can go through the summary.' But only seven days were

    left, so the whole country was searched and all sorts

    of scholars were brought. They started reading and

    summarising -- then too it was difficult.

    On the seventh day the one thousand scholars came and

    they had all summarised it; they brought a big file.

    He said, 'But there is no time to read the file --

    summarise the file!' And by the evening, when they had

    summarised the file, the man was dead!

    This is how things happen.... No more waiting. Be

    committed to the here and

    now. There is no other commitment. For

    speeding up the process of getting to the center the only commitment is to life, to

    existence, to the present, to this moment....



  • Thank you. However, I'm really quite confused - you said: What was supposed to happen in 7 days? Love.

    It probably did happen - maybe i missed it? No, the seed has sprouted, but maybe you will only feel it, when it will flower.

    and then: Love ? No.

    am I supposed to have met someone? no.

    or do you mean love in general? no.

    I don't understand...



  • MagicandSparkles,

    but this is not forced. It has to come by itself Just as there is enough air – nobody keeps it locked inside the house because sometimes air may be scarce and she may die of the scarcity of oxygen, so she should keep something stored. There is enough air. In the same way, there should be more than enough of love available to everybody, without any discrimination: no political party, no religious party. Communes – living out of love, no families, no equality imposed, but an equality coming on its own, just out of sheer love and brotherhood.
