RE: Taking a Reading Request
Hello Daliolite, this was my original message:
Hello Daliolite, I would like to request a reading as well if you have the time. Do you see any improvement in my love life? It's been so long I've met someone I really like that I'm about to lose hope.
Thanks in advance!
RE: Career reading request
Thank you so much Daliolite!
Yes I did try to do this as a job in the past but I never made enough money off of it. That's why I decided to let it go and found myself another job which is making me more and more miserable every day. I'm thinking of saving a bit and using that savings to jumpstart this job again which I didn't have the chance to do back then. And yes my parents were very against the idea saying that it didn't have the stability and security that would come with a conventional job which they were of course right about. Apart from my parents I didn't have much support from my friends either. Everyone basically thought I was wasting my time.
I actually think I need others for this, not for emotional support maybe but for networking, finding clients etc etc. But you're saying I don't need them? Could you please ask the cards for some clarification on that? It confused me a little.
Also, do you see my situation improving in my current job? I'm working with a group of very nasty people in a very stressful and high strung environment and it has become a struggle to go to work in the morning
Career reading request
I would love to request a reading if any of you have the time.
Currently I'm working at a job that doesn't make me happy and my work environment is very tense and very competitive. I would love to change jobs and try my hand at something I've been dreaming of for a very long time. The problem is it is a very serious decision in this market to pursue something that might not put food on the table. Could an of you ask the cards about the possible career change and its possibilities / downsides? Am I being completely naive by thinking it might be a good decision? Thanks a lot in advance!
RE: Photo Readings
sorry for responding so late captain. it's such an amazing, detailed reading, thank you!
you are unbelievably spot on about so many things. it actually made me emotional reading it.
i was recently diagnosed with fibrommyalgia, which is a cronic, stress related disease. i've read that perfectionists who are hard on themselves and others are more likely to be diagnosed with it. so yeah, you are right that i have to find some way to relax and not stress about my job so much. all this stress and anxiety is actually making me sick.
i'm hoping that i'll be able to benefit from this year's energy and find ways to be content with the way my life is going without worrying all the time. i'll be taking everything you wrote into consideration and incorporate them into my life one step at a time. fingers crossed!
thanks a lot!
RE: Photo Readings
sorry for the post above. i posted it by mistake.
captain, could you do a reading for me focusing on career and romance for this year. those two areas are the problem ones for me as i'm really unhappy at my job and haven't met someone i like in a very long time. i hope the photo uploads this time.
thanks a lot.
RE: Career reading interpretation
sorry for responding so late. thank you for your reading, you're too kind.
i'm surrounded by a lot of strong personalities at work so it's more than fitting to get those cards. i'm surrounded by women though so i don't get the male energy part. maybe you got those cards because they are also a bit aggressive?
money is tight both for me and the family so you're right on that part too. i live with my folks and have done so all my life so i wasn't away. if i ever decide to quit this job to pursue any sort of dream yes i would need their help but they aren't well off by any means and are only getting by so they wouldn't be able to help me much. hence needing to save up money and be practical. i was working for a friend yes. and i was massively disappointed by that work and it damaged our friendship.
i want to change my job and find something that will make me happier but i have no idea how to do that. i'm not connected or experienced enough to look for a job in another field and i'm well aware that this working environment is not going to change or make me happy by any means. this past week has been more peaceful for me at work so i had a chance to look at things more positively. i think i'm going to stick it out at this job as long as i can while looking for something else at the same time.
also, you were right about my being more inclined to start my own business than work for others. i did it for a couple years and freelanced but i didn't make enough much from it and it didn't make any sense to keep trying at it. i still get the odd freelance jobs in that field now and then but i don't think it would be wise to rely on solely on that.
Career reading interpretation
i would really appreciate it if anyone can help me interpret this reading i did for my career situation at the moment. to give you a bit of info: i recently quit a creative passion job because i wasn't making enough money to make ends meet. after searching for a job for a few months i found one with reasonable benefits and an above average salary. it's in a field i quit before i started working on my creative job and has been disappointed in previously. so i knew what i was going in for and didn't have many expectations aside from financial security. however my new workplace is a bit of a nightmare. i've only been working there a month but i've already witnessed fights, meltdowns, and general nastiness between my co-workers. i feel like i'm walking on eggshells around everyone and i'm trying my best not to get involved in any of the drama. i'm very uneasy in the office and the work i'm doing is by no means making me happy. i know i should be grateful to have a job to begin with but i also feel like it might be better for me to try my chances someplace else, i deserve to work in a peaceful environment. anyway, with all this in my mind, i asked the cards for some guidance. i picked 10 cards for a celtic cross spread. here are the cards in order:
heart of the matter: the empress
crossing: queen of cups
foundation: queen of swords
recent past: queen of pentacles
immediate future: knight of wands
the querent: seven of pentacles
environment: five of wands
hope: two of wands
outcome: seven of cups
i'm very very indecisive about what to do, whether to stick it out at this job, and bear the stress or just leave and look for something else. so i'd be very grateful if you can share your insights on this. thanks a lot in advance!
RE: Looking for guidance
Hello AstraAngel, I hope you've had a wonderful Christmas and New Years.
We don't celebrate Christmas where I live so I didn't have time off to think about anything else but the job land to be honest I've wanted to update you about it since there's been a development.
This new job that I've asked you about ended up being the one I took in the end. You know, the one you said came across a bit off in the reading. The salary they were offering was a lot better than the other one and they are a prestigious and well-known company. I'm starting the job on Monday.
What you were picking up on was about the workplace and environment I think because from what I've gathered from the interviews I had with them, they are really cautious towards new employees and have a very competitive work enviroment. They claim to favor team work but the behavior they are encouraging and suggesting is very individualist. I know this sounds a bit weird, but in my culture it's sort of understandable but still not very ideal. I hope I made sense
Thanks a lot for the readings and your help. They are very much appreciated.
RE: Looking for guidance
hello again, astra, i hope you're doing well.
after you've so kindly done these readings for me, i accepted the low paying job offer and i'm starting the job in the beginning of new year. however, we haven't made any sort of official agreement. in the meantime, a friend of mine informed me about a job opening in the company she's has started to work for a few months ago. i helped out this friend while she was desperate for a job a few years back and she sort of "owes" me. anyway, she told me of this position but kept complaining about the job, the company, the workload and the people she's working with. i asked about her salary since it was going to be a huge factor for me in deciding to work there or not but she refused to tell me, claiming that "she was forbidden to talk about it". anyway, i went for an interview and it went really well and they called back for a second interview which is tomorrow.
as you can probably tell, my friend soured my enthusiasm for this job. i don't know about the salary yet because they don't tell you till the very end (which is horrible) but the company itself is well known and is the kind of company that could open other doors for you in the future.
i guess the reason i'm writing to you is this: is my friend being truthful about this job? she's never given me a reason to doubt her loyalty before but she isn't someone i've spent a lot of time with so i can't say i know her very well. could you please look into the cards for me? i don't want to miss the position i'm already offered for one that's going to supposedly make me miserable.
thanks a lot in advance!
RE: Looking for guidance
Thanks a lot Astra! You're right. After some thinking I came to the same conclusion, as well. I'll definitely take either one of them. I'm saying either, because I heard back from the first job (with the horrendous salary) today and they say they're going to get back to me on Monday with a definite answer (I told them I would take the other offer if they didn't raise the salary and they asked for another day to finalise things.). So hopefully all will be cleared on Monday. I know all this sounds like I have the dream situation, but it's actually quite sad when you consider the salaries I am offered. I don't know what I'd do if I wasn't living with my folks.
But, as you said, in this day and age, any job is better than no job.
Thanks again for your time.
All my best.
RE: Looking for guidance
Hello AstraAngel! Thank you so much for the reading.
Two days after I posted here I heard from two of the places I applied for a job and I went to their interviews so yes I received some news about job possibilities! You were spot-on!
Unfortunately one of them offers a comical salary - I'm a college graduate with 5 years of work experience, 2 of them being in the field I'm looking for a job. The other one is slightly, slightly better, but if I were to pay rent (I live with my family at the moment) I wouldn't be able to survive on the rest. This is the reality of the field that I am in sadly and I'm looking for jobs in other fields as well.
The problem is, as you might guess, I don't have experience in those fields and it is going to be harder to find a job in them. I asked a few friends with contacts and I'm waiting to hear from them. What I'd like to know is whether my looking for other possibilities rather than accepting the job with a really low salary that I'm already offered is what you mean with the card Devil. Am I missing an opportunity by not accepting that job? Is this the only field that I can find a job? Am I being too hopeful that maybe something better may come up?
Btw, I'd like to point out that it makes a lot of sense that the reading focuses on my emotional life as this job situation and my health are stressing me immensely and I'm panicked maybe more that I should be and not giving myself the time to process my emotions and heal.
Looking for guidance
i would love a reading if any of you are taking requests.
i'm at a point in my life that nothing seems to be going well. i'm trying to be grateful and focus on the good things but sometimes i feel like i'm failing to do so. i'm job hunting at the moment, have been for a few months now with no luck. i've had a small issue with my health which is very minor but has been affecting my productivity lots. and i'm at the end of my financial resources. if any of you could do a reading with a focus on these i'd be really grateful. thanks a lot in advance!
