I’ve always been a bit interested in tarot cards and stuff like that and so after a pretty rubbish time I decided to look for inspiration from ‘the other side’ (sounds creepy but hey it can’t be any worse than this life) this person didn’t know me, they didn’t know names or anything but shit this was accurate…
Your reading started off with the Moon and Page of Swords, which indicated a lack of balance and to some degree honesty, left the relationship compromised. Whatever brought you both together no longer seem to be the case.
The King of cups (card one) shows a man sat on his throne surrounded by water and holding a cup. The cups represent emotion and so does water so this would suggest that in your past you needed to be in touch with your emotions. You were very much in control of them and could balance your female and male energies successfully. You would have been loving and caring with a nurturing ability to care for everyone, sometimes too much and often put your partner’s needs before your own. Whenever this card appears in a reading, it is a sign to say that you are supported by the universe, in ways that are seen and unseen.
The spread shows there was a partner and a part of him that wonders if he should try and rekindle things with you. His emotions can vary, and right now, he is appearing slightly detached. He doesn’t like feeling in limbo. He much prefers to feel in control. Deep down, he thinks the relationship has come to an end. Yet, he seems confused and agitated, most of that is due to him realising he is not ready for a serious relationship. He will continue to try and work things through quietly and intuitively to see if his decision making is correct. He wants to maintain control of any fall-outs.
The 6 of Wands shows a man riding home on a horse through a crowd of people waving 5 wands and cheering at him coming home. The 6th wand is in his hand with a wreath attached showing his achievement and he wears a crown on his head which shows success in what he has done. This suggests that now there have been a few setbacks that you are overcoming and are now in the position to take a little step back. You no longer need to go searching for love because the universe is saying you are already on the right path. However, the behaviour card is showing that you are acting like you still need to be brave and strong. The card is telling you that you are brave, you are strong, you do have the courage needed to get you the rest of the way. Sometimes this card shows up in this position because your situation is not over with yet, but I feel it is saying you have forgotten what it feels like when you are not forced to be strong and have forgotten to enjoy the freedom of being able to breathe. This sometimes comes in the form of loneliness, but this is only temporary and will not be this way forever.
The Tower card surrounds you in your reading, this indicates a feeling of things being ‘up in the air’ and so much strength is needed right now, whilst you continue to work things through. Eventually, you will decide to stop weighing things up as clarity begins to help you to see what you thought you had doesn’t seem to exist
The 7 of wands is telling you that soon, you will need to stand your ground. The 7 of Wands shows a man who has put all his wands in the ground and is stood quite firm about to put his final wand in place. This is a good card to have because this card shows that it doesn’t matter where the final wand lands… it will still be supported by the ground and stand firm. This is a card that tells me that in your near future, it doesn’t matter what life throws at you, you have it in the bag so to speak. I feel that you have a lot of loving support around you and the kind of relationship you want will certainly come to pass. However, do not settle for less than you deserve.
8 of cups came up as your hopes and fears. This is a hard card to judge in this position. This card looks like a man walking away from some very stagnant water and into the hills but on second glance you can see that he is turning away from 8 very sturdy cups and there is both the sun and the moon watching over him. The mountain suggests stability and the water is not actually stagnant but very much alive with moss and pond life. He uses a stick to help him on his journey. I feel this card would suggest that either you are wondering if it is time to move on or you are searching for deeper meaning in things. In either case, it will be ok. you can choose to turn around and stay with the cups for a while, continue your journey to stability or even stand a while and soak up the positive energy from the sun and moon. There is no longer a need to fear the past, the present or the future. There is just the need to look past the stagnant and enjoy what you have and what is yet to come to pass. The universe has a plan for you and has made sure that whichever path you chose, you will still end up right where you need to be.
Your final card is the magician, and this is in your distant future. It is often said that we control our own destiny, and this is what I am reminded of when this card showed in your reading. This card is a very high-powered card, it suggests that your wishes and desires can be realised with willpower and determination. The magician has everything on this card. The flowers which signify new beginnings, the symbol of infinity, a tall cup of positive emotions, the pentacle symbolising finance, the wand to show spiritual growth and physical movement and the sword to show mental clarity and if that isn’t enough… he is also holding a staff in the air to show his connection to the universe and his achievements through life. This card is telling you to believe in yourself. You oversee your own destiny and anything you want is within your power to get. This card is telling me that you will be in a loving relationship in the distant future and added to all the other cards it would suggest that if you are not already with someone at present, he is already present in your life and it will be a long and fruitful relationship when you do get together.
This card also suggests that you have a connection with the universe and you already get messages. If you are not already aware of this then may I suggest looking to find someone who can help you listen to your gifts. I sensed your empathic side very powerfully when I saw your pic and wondered if you were already practising your gifts.
The spread of your cards shows overall that a lot of soul searching is needed from your end.
It also indicated that there are many more possibilities available to you than just one person. It can be tempting to succumb to the idea that there is one pre-destined Soul Mate for each of us, but your reading comes with a timely reminder that this belief can become self-limiting.
There are many potential Soul Mates out there for you, however at the present time the universe is asking you to examine the break up with your ex- partner. There is the feeling that something needs to be re-examined so that you can draw a line under it. The key to being able to ‘breathe again’ is by taking a closer look at what needs to be focused on first.
