reading about love for K.

hi there,

I am back … it’s been a while. I just needed some time off from blogging, though I have been using cards a lot … and took a lot of notes … It was just one of this period during which I needed only the contact of paper/pen and nothing else 😀 I have been writing a couple of chapters, done quite a few readings. I didn’t expect to be away for so long though. But sometimes, the writing would take the whole evening so … time flew by. With no further do : here is below a case analysis for you to enjoy.

Here is a reading I did about love for a person (woman). I used the Morgan Greer deck and no reversal. She is single and is asking about what she can expect in the next future regarding relationships.

The situation (3 cards)

the Outcome (1 cards)

The 10 of Wands

the Queen of Cups is of course representing her with her hope for love. As this is the central card, it is standing strong and is important I feel for the “translation”. Right now though it seems all her dedication is in her work. That is indicated by the 8 of Pentacles. She’d be in a relationship, I would read this as her doing all her best in order to make this relationship work. As she is single it shows her putting all of her energy in her work and diligently so. She is keeping herself very busy. The 5 of Pentacles shows that she feels miserable and also might be a hint that she doesn’t feel like this is rewarding. Her effort are bigger than what she receives. She is good at covering it with the 8 of pentacles and the Queen of cups. The Queen is actually looking at the 8 of pentacles. And the character in the 8 pentacles is looking on his work. The Queen seems to ignore the card behind her. Well, maybe “ignore” is not the right word … She is actually presenting her face to the world as the Queen and is somewhat hiding the truth which is the 5 of pentacles. To me, it looks like she is good at putting things in perpective and not spend all of her time dwelling on what could have been and what should have been and so and so … At least not in public. Knowing her love life is a desert right now, she gives the priority to work. This is bordering on workaholism maybe, but it is better than crying all day long, and she has the opportunity to put some money on the side which could be useful in the future …

The Tower and the 10 of Swords are striking next to another. Not the prettiest sight ! But let’s remember that The tower is not always negative. Actually, one sometimes need a shock to come alive. (remember the needle thing through the heart in Pulp Fiction ? ). Well, who wants to go through that ? But if it is the only way to come back from the dead … one takes the option right ? The 10 of Swords is clearly the victim or someone who feels that way, defeated. So to me this looks like she is going to acknowledge her hurt in a very sudden way or she is going to go through a tough experience which is going to be painful. To the very least it is going to rock her foundation. I would advice her to enjoy some time out of her work, go out a little bit more, or she is going to end up in total burn out. In an health reading, that tower and the 10 of swords speaks of a surgery, a hospitalization. Also, some other issues were addressed here : the Tower also represents our ego and the 10 of Swords doesn’t look like a winner here right ? So the 2 of them, I feel here, are related to low self esteem. And that may actually be the energy around the situation : because she doesn’t feel right with herself, she doesn’t allow herself to open up to someone and only dedicate herself to work. My intuition tells me that THIS is spot on, THIS is the core problem and solution.

Okay, while the party is not around the corner with that combo. there is still something positive in every situation. The character in the 10 of Swords seems to be a person who is jumping out of the Tower card and who hit the ground after a long fall. So it can’t go further down from there. It is as down as can be. The positive ? The only way is up then !

The 10 of Wands shows that exactly. In a very realistic way: “No one said it was going to be easy”. The 10 of wands speaks of courage, not giving up, keep on keeping. Having heavy stuff to carry on. It doesn’t mean you are going to end up alone; but there is quite a way to go. Don’t loose your courage : and it is up to you to make that journey interesting. Everything you learn in the process, will make you wiser and more interesting too. The distance the character has to go, might imply that there might a geographic distance between her and the person she is going to be with. My intuition tell me so anyway.

So, let’s look at the 2 ten in this draw : 10 of Swords and 10 of Wands

The outcome shows the character who picked the swords out of his own body and only carries the lessons learned from the bad experience as wands . The Swords changed into Wands if you prefer. But not by sheer magic, only because the character from the 10 of swords got back on his feet and decided to walk again. It shows that we can take from very painful experience, and even if we suffer from it, we can take the lesson and move forward.
the last 3 cards seems to say : “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger …” (Honestly, I don’t know how many times I have been told about that one … I guess it is true, but when you are bleeding it is tough to take … )

well, I hope you enjoyed this little analysis of the reading. As you may notice, even if some cards are not speaking about total bliss I try to put a message that can be useful for the querent … I think there was a saying that said something like there is no problem only solutions …
Good to be back ^^
