Did a reading for a friend, insight?



  • Hi!

    Me and my best friend are in a similar situatiion with two brothers, she asked me for help when I told her I sometimes use tarot cards, but I need a second or third opionion on this because I feel as if there is something I am missing. Astra did a crossed celtic cross reading for me so I took some of those questions and added some of my own

    I first started out with pairing up the arcanas one by one, major by itself and minor by itself and putting them into order: wands, cups, swords, pentacles and major arcana on top before mixing them. I shuffle between every question.

    What do u guys think about my friend and the guy?

    Situation and crossing card -

    Him: hanged man- king sword

    Her : 6 wands-king wands

    To me the hanged man is about seeing something in a different way, the king is a powerful man with a lot of power and demands, he is used to be obeyed

    6 wands to me means good news and triumph, king wands is someone who is smart and gives good advices

    Together: wheel of fortune

    Things that are destined, sometimes good news, the wheel goes round and round

    Above / below:

    Him: 4 sword/the world

    Her: 3 pentacles/9 wands

    4 sword: empty bed, problems in the lovelife, being alone, retreat the world: a travel and changes of location

    3 pentacles: knowing and things that are appreciated, 9 wands problems to solve, an attack, to gather up strenght

    Together: 5 sword/9 wands

    5 swords: criminal actions, loss, ruin, 9 wands- problems to solve, an attack, to gather up strenght

    Past / Ahead:

    Him chariot/king cups

    Her 10 sword/knight pentacles

    Chariot, two horses which I think represents him and his brother wanting to go different ways, however they can´t because they are joined together through the chariot

    King cups, someone who is sensitive and nice, as long as you behave

    10 sword to me is abandoned, loss, tears, hurt, depression, knight pentacles hard work, someone you can trust

    Together: 6 pentacles/9 wands

    6 pentacles: gifts, a happy time 9 wands problems to solve, an attack, to gather up strength

    Future environment:

    Him: temperance

    To adjust and save things, to retreat

    Her: Justice

    Triumph of justice, control, truth

    Together: Knight wands

    To go away or stay away, sometimes changes of how to live

    Outer Influences:

    Him: 4 wands

    Her: page wands

    4 wands: happiness, unexpected luck

    Page wands good news, a loyal lover

    Together: knight sword- a knight with his sword high up ready to fight in full speed

    Hopes and Dreams:

    Him: 2 sword/page sword

    2 sword agreement/ page sword to be let down, spies, a fake person

    Her: 7 pentacles/ ace sword

    7 pentacles loss of patience, ace sword exaggerated of all, the triumph of will

    Together

  • rockofages

    I thought your reading was very detailed and shows a lot of insight on your part. I am having a little trouble understanding exactly what the situation/concern is, however that could be just me.

    What did your friend gain from it?

    I tend to see the cards a little differently, however we all have our opinion of such things. 5's I tend to see simply as changes (hopefully for the better) for example. However I thought all of your comments on the cards were very well articulated. Plus you show a very structured way of approaching the reading which is excellent.

    I think its great!



  • But what should I tell me friend, should I tell her the reading told her they are not a good match or to keep on fighting for him? It seems more to me he is destined to be with the other girl, however I can be wrong because the sun and wheel of fortune came up for my friend and her guy aswell...gaah 😛
