Thanks for the advice us newbies need to stick together lol.
This is what i read in the cards:
Position 1: The King of Cups (left)
I feel this represents him as a person, he is very much in control of his emotions and he is keeping them hidden, almost like he is ignoring them as acknowledging them would make his life complicated. He is sat on a throne in the middle of the ocean almost like he is removing/isolating himself from the situation/me.
Position 2: The Lovers (middle)
I feel this card represents the situation he is in, there are 3 people on the card which would make sense with the love triangle aspect. He has to make a choice between the two of us (cupid is aiming the arrow at him) and he's still not sure which way to go...he's torn.
Position 3: Knight of Cups (right)
I feel this card represents his choice, he is on a white horse riding over a bridge, he is returning from a journey. I feel he needs to go on an emotional journey, he will return (to me) my knight on a white steed and shining armour when this is done, and he is ready to give me his heart/love (in the picture it to me looks like he is holding out the cup he is carrying).
I then wondered what the time frame would be:
Position 4: 3 of Cups
I feel this is saying that he will return in a time frame of 2 weeks, 2 months or 2 years (there are two trees, 2 bushes on the card which give me that vibe) and it will be a time of great happiness and celebration for him/us when this happens.
So quite different from yours.
I don't have another guy in mind at the moment but I have a sneaky feeling that an ex of mine is about to appear from the wood work, so you never know
Thank you for your insight.
