I just did a celtic spread earlier today and was wondering if anyone here would like to critique my interpretation.
If it helps, I used the cosmic deck.
This spread was done for a current (non-romantic, fun platonic relationship) where there are mixed signals; innuendo, hot/cold, tension . I'm pretty certain the prince of cups, emperor, king of cups and king of swords are all indicative of the guy. I'm getting that I'm more of a conquest here (mainly based on outcome and the three clarifiers - see below)...thoughts?
1 - justice (I love this card in the Cosmic deck - eyes wide open, she sees everything - hey, I try!)
2- the chariot (This...whatever it is between us, is heading somewhere...perhaps negative)
3 (attitudes and beliefs) - page of pentacles (This is me, someone under him in a professional setting...but bringing energy and enthusiasm into his life) ( note: princess of pentacles with cosmic deck; sensual card)
4 (root cause) - Prince of Cups (in Cosmic...very romantic guy...with a snake on a scepter) Knight of Cups - the beginning of the emotional connection I feel...flirtation
5 - the emperor (past, receding influence) - his position of authority will not exist in the near future...or perhaps he doesn't he it is as much of an issue now (I couldn't imagine that, though).
6 - king of cups (approaching influence) ...I was getting friendship from this, but the clarifiers for King of Swords make me think that King of Cups is relating to seduction here...he's quite smooth yet appears honorable.
7 - ace of swords (me right now) - I'm wanting to move forward with action... (but in reality, I can't!)
8- two of cups (how others see this) - how he sees us
9 - the star (hopes, fears, desires) - ?? clarifier for the star: queen of pents, ace of cups, queen of swords (i'm having trouble understanding this position here...)
10 - Outcome - King of Swords (Original thought - he's trying to use logic here...weighing the pros and cons (fun v reputation...etc)...but what about the King of Cups as an increasing influence? I think a little bit more is going on than a friendship here...but will he move forward? He's practical and a realist.
Clarifiers for outcome/King of Swords:
Six of Wands - Victory - of what? "being good/restraint" or a pursuit?
Two of Pentacles - Balance
King of Wands - He has to take the lead here.
My interpretation of outcome. If this is what he eventually decides, he will pursue this.
Clarifier for timing of relationship: Hierophant
So...he wants this to happen but it isn't going to right now because of his authority over me. We'll see what happens later.
