Oh and in addition Dal (I was pretty distracted when I wrote the last replies), he desperately wants a family, kids, nice house, etc. However, she's studying for a high-stress, high involvement career and has some huge dreams that would basically prevent any of his dreams from being realistic. He has hoped in the past that she might be able to downsize those dreams by "maturing" but she is really ambitious and I don't think that's likely to happen...

RE: Tarot Readings
Basically, being with her means that he can't join the military or really pursue too many options in his career because he has to think about what she approves of. She has also cheated on him in the past, yells at him for saying or doing anything slightly out of line, and being with her basically means he is stuck in a long-distance relationship for at least another 4 years. When he found out about the cheating he nearly broke up with her on the spot, but was advised by some other friends to give it a chance. He alternates between being stuck in anger about her and depression, and I've been really worried about him for the past while... He definitely thought about marriage with her before, but that was at least a year or two ago. She has been making him miserable since, and when the cheating came to light it really, really shook him.
I don't work with him. We took a degree together and became best friends on the way. I've been trying to find him a job but with no luck. He basically told me that the only reason he could come up with not to date me when we began getting close was because he didn't want to mess with the group dynamic of our friends. When the Devil came up in my previous reading, it basically seemed to point to him being tempted out of the current relationship because of awesome chemistry between us, and that his foundations may recently have been challenged.
The reason I read him as the emperor was that he was the one who realistically had a choice in the relationship. He is very much a "leader" in our group of friends and I had already decided that I would be interested in the relationship; it was his choice whether or not to start it. It still is his choice, ahah.
I pretty much have no choice but to focus on career for the next while, ahaha. It's a big step for me and would make sense that it dominates the reading!
RE: Tarot Readings
Hi Dal - thanks for the reading!
There is definitely a focus on a new career right now. I just began a new job last week - it's my first "grown up" job and it is certainly in something I want to advance in. It is something I could stand to gain a lot of experience in! Perhaps this is what the Ace of Swords stood for - a new beginning in communication and thought? It's certainly a job all about building things and creating things based on ideas. The thing I am moving away from is perhaps my university career?
I think what I might be waiting to "hear" could be news on the relationship front. I want to make some drastic changes there too - there's a guy I have a ton of interest in, but he has a girlfriend. His relationship with her has gotten really rocky, and readings I have looked at in the past have pointed at a new beginning with him, too. I've been really hoping for some kind of change there, since she is rather abusive towards him in a verbal and emotional way, and the only way he is going to be free in career and love is if he isn't with her...
I hope this helps clarify some of the cards, perhaps? What do you think? I wouldn't mind a quick glance at what might happen with my love interest guy (he has been shown as the emperor in the past readings of mine and AstraAngel's, he could also be the knight of cups given how "gentlemanly" he is), as well as a reading of what my new job might bring me!
Thanks again - these readings are incredibly helpful
An Intriguing Reading
I was doing a quick daily 3 card draw about the guy I am interested in and his rocky relationship with his girlfriend, and also asked what was going on between us. I found an interesting twist that I could use some help deciphering!
Between him and his girlfriend:
Knight of Cups - 6 of Pentacles (inverse) - 3 of Cups - (inverse)
Between him and I:
Queen of Cups - 6 of Pentacles (upright!) - Strength
Does anyone have some interpretations on this? The fact that the same card is present but positive for me and negative between him and his girlfriend is an interesting thing that I can't seem to interpret...
RE: The Tarot as a learning tool
I'm sorry to hear that you'll be taking a break from the forums. You're certainly one of the most talented readers I have been able to find online, and you've been a huge inspiration to me to learn more and apply myself to reading the cards (and not just my cartomancy readings either). It is truly admirable that you tried to give readings to anyone who asked.
Thank you for the readings you did for me; they were very helpful and I am keeping an eye out for a lot of the events you foretold!
Love and light,
RE: Astra - A Follow-up
Hi again Astra!
Is it possible that the 10 of Pentacles might also correspond to a huge financial success? I've just picked up what pretty much amounts to a dream job, and P had an interview at what essentially would be his dream job that apparently went really well. I prayed pretty diligently to St. Brigid and the angels that it would be a success, and from what he said it sounded rather positive!
I also think the Emperor is a really major card here... I've done a few three card draws to try and figure out some tips for where I am in life, what is going on with P and his girlfriend since that incident on the weekend, and the Emperor has been coming up *often". It could even possibly be a card that represents him? He is a natural leader, and in our relationship, given that I'd date him in a heartbeat it could represent the fact that he's the one who realistically is going to choose whether or not a romantic relationship springs from it.
Also out of curiosity, do you use inverse meanings in your readings or no? It's virtually impossible to do so in a playing card reading, given that both sides are usually identical, but it is a question I keep asking myself whenever an inverse card shows up in the tarot.
Thanks again for all your guidance!
RE: Astra - A Follow-up
Awww, thank you so much Astra! I've only ever really done readings for myself and for friends who have asked, or in reading exchanges online to hone my talents and get some kind of cosmic advice. I'll take this into consideration though! I don't think I'd ever do it as a full-time job or anything, I'm too passionate about my studied field right now, but perhaps as a side thing it would be fun to help people with my cards and intuition!
I actually started learning with playing cards thanks to the internet about 5 or 6 years ago. I've only really ever done it for myself or friends, but it is far more convenient than tarot for me - I can do a reading in public for myself and people will just think I'm playing solitaire, ahaha! The Hierophant is definitely encouraging for me!
I figured I'd try pulling a tarot card for you, since you might be able to catch a few nuances that I won't, and it'd be good practice! I took the top card from the deck in asking for something you should be aware of around you. I found the 9 of Swords. From my understanding, it can mean that you might feel vulnerable, worried, guilty or you might despair. Take heart though - this is a caution and warns that any of those feelings are generated within you, not without - if you focus on whatever the cause of the troubles may be, you can ensure that whatever choices you make to correct it are the right ones! Just be aware of what might be causing you trouble and don't be afraid to make choices that feel right.
If you'd like, I don't mind using a playing card/cartomancy single card draw to try and get a little more detail! I find the system I use is better for physical, tangible events or items, whereas the tarot seems to be more general and emotional - though I think it's just that I'm not used to reading it yet, ahaha.
Thank you so much for all the readings!! I really appreciate everything you've done, and it gives me great hope for the future!
