coming love interest spread : update

hi there,

this is the original post, where I tried to know about my coming love interest …. and below you have the feedback !

I copy/paste the original comments and in bold dark green is what is correct about the reading

Seriously, I am amazed by the accuracy …

this is the orignial post :

https://jaycetravel.wordpress.com/2009/03/10/coming-love-interest-spread/

9 of pentacles
Independant and single : absolutely right !
He is very independant and definitely was single for quite a while.

Also, in this deck this lady is the only character dark skinned :
I always thought of her as standing out from the rest of the crowd.
Matter of factly, I was reading his posts on a forum, and his avatar and his posts were standing out.
So much that, for weeks, I used to come home, log myself to the site, and read his posts …. It was my pleasure of the day !

original post

9 of pentacles is a man who is independent and single.
He might be financially well off and knows how to enjoy the finest things in life. He worked in order to have what he has now in life.


Knight of cups. (his job)
Well interestingly enough, on this deck there is a river on this card.
And he works on a boat so he is on a river ….
So, not a musician, as I first thought, not an actor, even though he likes music but then, the card should have been read quite literally here

original post :

a work related to art ( such as acting, music …); my guess is he has to deal with a public. This knight is like a troubadour, his job requires him to be a little bit bohemian. His job require to be in tune with other people’s feelings and to understand them and to respond to them.

emperor /his quality :
definitely. this one was totally right.

He is stable and is offering security, could be someone protective of me.
He has no problem assuming responsibility. He is practical and strong.


the sun /his flaw :
well I think his problem, here is related to health (the heart).
now everything got back to fine. he is also is stubborn and won’t mince his words … so not exactly an ego problem, pers se, but he is someone who will fight to make his opinion heard or something ….

original post :

at first I thought “his ego” ? If indeed he has a job dealing with a public of some sort, he enjoys being in the spotlight.
Or he is over ambitious and hates second best. If he is very involved with his work he might be burn out. Other idea that came then to my mind : he might lack of optimism or fun in his life.


2 of swords / his looks
completely right.

original post

Something about the eyes : deep set and moody.(don’t know why but this is exactly what came to my mind, also almond shape). He may look shy and reserved, somewhat lonely and sad. Always thinking about something.
I would also add : dark eyes and hair. Maybe people find him a little bit of a mystery, hard to decipher.


7 of cups / what he’ll think of me
well, when we met in person, he was actually pleased and certainly not disappointed.
he only had seen a couple of pictures of me, as we met online (but not on a dating site at all)

original post :

He will be tempted like a kid in a candy store ? Apparently I might look like an illusion to him.
(this card is lovely by the way in the morgan greer deck). I hope I will look like a dream come true to him and not like an illusion or worse high on something given the meaning of this card lol. Also, he will notice a lot of details about me.


3 of pentacles / what I will think of him
just right, he was my favorite person on the forum where we met  : dedicated and someone to learn from.

original post :

That he is good at what he does, committed and an avid learner. Aesthetics is also a theme for the 3 of pentacles, so I’ll say I will like the way he looks. The worker on the card is dressed up in a very casual way, working clothes; so I might actually think that he is a very cool and relaxed type of guy.


knight of pentacles
well, yes he is quite serious and is not the type of guy to have flings.
we are about to move in together at the end of the month so ….

original post :

Apparently he will think about being serious and long commitment will be on his mind. He’ll wish for something solid to built upon.


the world
well definitely.
funnily enough, I was reading his posts online and just knew I would meet him someday.
I didn’t hit me then, that he was the one I was looking for.
I just was interested by his views, and loved his way with words.

original post :

He will mean the world to me. I’ll feel like he is “the one” I have been looking for. (needless to say, I was happy to see this card coming up).


the 6 of swords
we both have a tough past, and we are so leaving that behind.
we take the opportunity to leave that sadness behind and move on with our lives together.

original post :

This relationship will help to put the past behind and move from a trouble past.
What we both have been through will help to understand each other and cement the relationship.


kind of rod
well …. yeah! he doesn’t mince his words. Neither do I.

original post :

We will fight for authority.


8 of wands
we met online, didn’t live in the same country, met in real life, and for several months
it’s been moving a lot , travelling in order to meet and spent some quality time together while still being people who have a day job …. and now we are moving together.

original post :

I have read that traditionally the 8 of wands was the falling in love card ! The 8 of wands is sometimes showing a fling when it come to relationship. But as this card come for the long term potential and the rest of the spread is positive, I won’t read it as such.

So, the 8 of wands will take us far. We will be great “traveling” partners
looks like this relationship won’t be the boring kind with the 8 of wands. It will keep us up and going … Life will take on a different speed, a lot of intensity. More than welcome, really !

so what do you think ?

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)

mg-minor-discs-08mg-minor-cups-queenmg-minor-discs-05

8 of pentacles / Queen of Cups / 5 of Cups

How the situation evolves (2 cards)

mg-16-major-towermg-minor-swords-10

the Tower / the 10 of Swords

the Outcome (1 cards)

mg-minor-wands-10

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 ^^

Reading Case analysis around summer time romance

Hi there,

I yet have found a reading I did a while back which is around the topic of relationship.
Context : single, going on an extended holiday, wanting to know if a summer time romance would be on the menu !

The past (3 cards)

the Bear (15) , the Heart (24) , the Coffin (8)

This is reflecting the relationship that ended. That part of the spread was representing the past that ended, and has no more influence on her at the present. On a sidenote, the Bear is here standing as the very possessive nature of her ex lover. So sometimes, when you will see the Bear associated with the Heart, think about asking the querent whether she thinks her partner is possessive, jealous and such. When you do a reading using the “grand tableau”, you have more than 3 cards, and you will have more clues whether to translate that as possessiveness or just passion without the bad aspect such as jealousy. Of course, the Coffin here says that passion or that possessive relationship is over.

What is happening right now in regard of her decision (which is to find someone), opening the door to that eventuality. (3 cards)

the Cross (36), The Tree (5), The Crossroads (22)

She is actually at the Crossroads. The decision to leave her ex is one thing. But the fact that she now decides to find love is another decision. The Cross is there to imply she is making an important decision, she is at a turning point of her life. The Crossroads is at the end of the line so I see it as her leaving what is unnecessary behind and moving on. She has a high ideal and she is pursuing it. The high ideal is to me the combination shown by the Cross and the Tree.

The next future and the outcome of her question : Was she going to meet someone in the summer time ?

the Tower (19), the Sun (31), the Fish (34)

She was going on holiday and wanted to know if there was a potential for a relationship during summer time. I would have love to tell her about summer romance, but with that combo; it looked unlikely. It was showing a place by the ocean during the summer (the Sun with the Fish). Also implied it could be expensive ! But all in all, the Tower is not exactly the card you get announcing a relationship. The Tower stands for isolation, loneliness in this draw. It doesn’t mean an awful holiday but don’t expect to meet the love of your life. Be self reliant, enjoy the summer. Make the most of it, love is probably on the way but it will come later, at the right time !

Cheers
Jayce

Reading about love

Question : What does the future hold for me in the next future regarding a love relationship ?

Layout used : the horseshoe spread (a 7 cards layout)
This should reflect what is going to happen in the next 3 months or so.

10 of cupsQueen of Cupsthe judgement7 of wands3 of pentacles7 of pentaclesthe world

The past : the 10 of Cups
The present : the Queen of Cups
The next future : the Judgment
The answer : 7 of Wands
The surrounding energies : the 3 of Pentacles
The attitude : 7 of Pentacles
The outcome : the World

First of all, I was mostly surprised I had no reversed cards. I mean, the last times I did phrase that question for relationship readings I had mostly “negative” cards, and some of them reversed, and yes, it was accurate. Right on target.

Like, I always had the 9 of wands, which really reflected on my situation : being on my guard, or being afraid to be caught off guard, to the very least a state of caution regarding relationships, due to my past experience. This card was a recurrent one, and I don’t do readings for myself every week, most of the time I leave several months in between. I do think it is quite useless to ask the same question every week when it is about such an important matter. You have to leave some time in between readings in order to let your life evolves. The cards answers just won’t be relevant, if one ask the same question every 2 days or so.

The past with the 10 of cups is reflecting my parents, the family unit. I’m not in a relationship and the last one I had was surely not in the same spirit of that 10 of cups. So the past cards which refers to the last 2 years or so, means that love received was coming from my own family. (Maybe it shows what I hope for.)

The present :The Queen of Cups
It is the first time I’m represented by this Queen. This Queen is intuitive, emotional, sensitive, caring. More the kind to base her judgments on how she feels. I guess here it shows that I now center my life around the emotional quality which I try to achieve.
Even though I have my bills to pay just like anyone, the quality of my life is not based on the material aspect of it.

The fact that I’m now involved in the making of this blog may also be the creativity and the intuition side of this Queen. Indeed, I look at symbolism a lot right now, in paintings, sculptures or photographies, I’ve always been a very visual kind of person, but I felt it went to another degree recently. My imagination is going to another level, may I say.

Unlike in my 9 of wands period, I’m able to face the emotional pain in a different way. My emotional strength is in full swing now. I’m waiting patiently for an opportunity.

The next future : The Judgment
Self knowledge again here. This Major Arcana may also speak of spirituality.
Could it be that I’m actually cleansing from the hurt. Seems to me. I may have the opportunity to close this chapter for good and move on. Whether I’ll meet someone or not is unclear to me, but nevertheless this will be an important chapter in my life and a beneficial one. I’m going to feel “alive” again.

The surrounding energies : the 3 of pentacles
Studying, attending a course … Well, here it is related to my work, and also my daily process of learning the tarot. Solid foundations. I focus on what is going to be important in my life.

The attitude : 7 of pentacles
I’m thinking about where life is taking me, realizing that certain things may take time before I will enjoy the outcome. Once again here, I see it more related to my job and my tarot learning process. Might mean that this aspect will be the focus, and not a relationship. And that’s actually a bit how I feel, there’s no rush. I mean I also like the benefit one might enjoy as being single.

The outcome : the World
Becoming a whole through my past experiences. I’ll overcome the obstacles. Reaching another level of awareness.

The answer : 7 of wands
the competition card. Firstly, I had no idea. I draw a total blank. Just like this card wasn’t related to the others in the layout. I couldn’t relate it to the others in a storyline. It was a bit like watching tv and then without warning someone is changing the channel. So, I let it for a while and looked at the draw again. Some difficulties will be on the way, but with the support of the World card as the outcome, I should be able to rise above those problems gracefully.
Note: This just crossed my mind, it is also the ability to say “no”. Indeed, I didn’t respond to my ex, as he once again tried to contact me. I answered my mobile and when I figured it was him on the other side of the line, I didn’t continue the conversation. (He hid his number, so I didn’t acknowledge it was him at first, other while I wouldn’t have even bothered to respond in the first place). So a firm “No” will help me to reach what the card “World” is showing.

Conclusion : Meeting someone is not what I see in this draw, more connecting with myself and the fulfillment of that. All in all, a very good period in on the way for me.

Reading about a love relationship

The question:
What does the future hold for me in relationships in the next future ?
The time frame chosen was: the next 3 months.

Layout : the horseshoe spread

9 of wands reversedknight of cups reversedknight of wands8 of pentacles reversed6 of swordsthe hanged man

the past : the 9 of wands reversed
the present: Knight of Cups reversed
the next future: Knight of Wands
the answer: 8 of Pentacles reversed
the surrounding energies: 6 of Swords reversed
the attitude: the Hanged Man
the outcome: The Ace of Cups
additional card for the next future: the Emperor
additional card for the outcome: Queen of Cups reversed

The 9 of wands reversed. In the past, there was a relationship that didn’t end well. As a consequence, she’s on the alert, somewhat insecure about intimacy. The present is the Knight of Cups, reversed that is : her vision of love is not realistic, it clouds what life may actually be offering to her. An immature attitude towards romantic affairs is shown here.

She might be day-dreaming at this point. This might feel like a gloomy period to her. In the next 3 months, there might be someone enthusiastic, and passionate making a move. It could also be someone who moves, who travels, someone you meet as you are travelling. (the Knight of Wands).
There, an extra card was chosen : the Emperor. The card is upright. Compared to the past, and the present card, it shows at least that energies with the Knight and the Emperor are actually more positive. Both cards are upright. Be on the look out, the Knight of Wands is not always reliable, but the Emperor balances that. He is practical and reliable. The material and practical aspects are important things to him. The Knight of wands and the Emperor have this in common : qualities of leadership, going forward, demanding on the negative side may be someone too controlling. Now, could it be qualities of the client : it may portray her as being very active in her professional field. Being on the go with her career ensuring that the material aspect of her life is under control.

The Hanged Man sees her being bound, maybe to her past. The 9 of wands and the Knight of Cups (both reversed) already tends to show that. But this one is more positive as it also denotes that she may see things under another angle, she has the ability to develop a philosophy to live by and gain inner strength from that. It doesn’t show her making a move forward, but being contemplative towards love matter. A period of Re-evaluation. When being hung up like that you’re of course going nowhere but the option of looking inside is available.

Waiting for a change can that way be fruitful, if you re-adjust what you need in life, what you expect from love. The Knight of Cups reversed shows somewhat unrealistic wishes at the present. The energy surrounding the question shows the 6 of swords reversed which re-inforce the idea of being in a state of limbo. But it also says that the stability of her life is driving her nuts at this point, something is driving her to the point of conflict. The hanged man and the 6 of swords combined suggests standstill and advice her to examine her belief. The combination of the 6 of swords reversed and the hanged man make me think about “storm under the quiet surface of the water”.

The outcome is the Ace of Cups. There, we have at least something positive ! This ace shows a new understanding of love, maybe the beginning of a relationship. An opening of the heart. An add card was pulled at this point : the queen of Cups reversed. indicating mood swings. Thus, there are still some unresolved issues from the past that might prevent her to meet someone in the next 3 months.
The 8 of Pentacles reversed as the answer tends to confirm that option as it might means “workaholic”. There is still a long memory of emotional pain that are in the way of meeting someone, she will be probably too busy with work in the next months to meet someone. Still the possibility to learn from the past is there with the ace of cups and the hanged man, and this is something she’ll use afterwards not only in relationships but in her every day life as well. And life with the Knight of Wands and the Emperor won’t be dull. Those 3 months will be over before she knows it.

Cheers, hope you enjoyed this reading and the analysis of it. Comments are welcome,

Cards about love

the loversace of cupsAce of Wands

Love is of course one of the main reasons people ask for a reading. Not that I am complaining. I just shuffled my deck today, and flipped the cards one by one.
As I looked at each card, I jotted down these thoughts trying to connect them with events related to love. Well, of course, all cards could be related to this topic in some way or another, but some seems to be more obvious than others. I’ll start only with the upright cards. I’ll keep the reversed for another post.

The lovers card comes to mind of course, but contrary to popular belief this may remain platonic. It may speak about the affection 2 individuals have for one another. So it may sometimes indicates a soul mate but this could be the friend you’ll keep for a lifetime. Or maybe just an indication that you are at present in your life, listening to your physical and spiritual needs when making a choice.

The Ace of Cups is showing a time when you discover about love, about expressing it and receiving it. My stepsister that I love dearly, and who’s lucky in love and doesn’t know anything about tarot; just once looked at the whole deck. I actually was wondering what would be her reaction to the cards as she has no notion of the card’s meaning, she just looked at the Ace of Cups and said “This looks beautiful. Very catholic in a way, but I love the details of it”. By the way, it was the medieval Scapini tarot deck. So the Ace of Cups is about a new relationship, or taking the existing relationship to the next level.

The Ace of Wands is a very phallic looking card. It may means fertility, but one thing for sure when you get this as an answer for a relationship reading, the spark between the 2 individuals is there and this could lead to a passionate fling, if not a relationship. It says physical action. Think “Start me up” by the Rolling Stones when you see this card.

2 of cups3 of cups The 2 of Cups is the sharing between 2 individuals. The sharing is beneficial for both and both are working on the relationship. The 4 of wands and/or the 6 of wands is for the commitment. The 10 of cups is also a good indicator.

The 3 of Cups may simply denote friendship, a party. But it may point a marriage/commitment : the celebration party. Look if the Empress is around, she is the mother card, the home stability. (and if there is one of the Pages : it may indicate a women’s pregnancy). Look for the 9 of pentacles as well. When it comes to being committed, the 8 of pentacles shows the will to work on the relationship, doing what’s right to make it work. The 6 of wands is the coming home with success. The 4 of wands alone may mean redecorating a house, but with the other 2 cards : moving in with someone, making room for a relationship … the 10 of cups which shows a loving family could indicate a true bliss.

8 of pentacles6 of wands4 of wands10 of cups

8 of wandsThe 8 of wands on the other end speaks about something happening quickly. It doesn’t promise to stay. It may also represent someone who’s making a move on you. But it could move out as soon as it moves in. “Carpe diem”. Enjoy, but don’t look yet for commitment, first things first. Think “I need U tonight” by INXS.

5 of cups

The 5 of Cups shows sadness. it is the mourning card. along with the 9 of swords it may point to serious issue like depression, endless nights without sleep, crying for the lost love. Look if there is the Tower and the Death card as well, it could lead to something very serious like a nervous breakdown, something very hard to go through.

8 of cupsThe 8 of cups is someone leaving the relationship if there is one. Which can be a good thing if it is an abusive relationship. and if there is none, it might be someone who’s leaving pain, sadness, grief behind in order to seek something more fulfilling. If the relationship was a bad one, then it is a good sign, you leave the pain behind, you keep on going on your journey, looking out for a better place for you in the world.

The 3 of swords is yet another card that shows the pain one has when a meaningful relationship is coming to an end. I see the 7 of cups as illusion in love, not knowing what you need or want in a relationship, especially associated with the Moon for example.

3 of swords7 of cupsthe moon4 of cups

The 4 of cups is a card you may get when being bored in a relationship. maybe it is a sign that love has turned into a dull routine. If the 7 of pentacles is around, you might be reconsidering options. Should I stay or should I go ? You are in need of “Alive and Kicking” (Simple Minds).

5 of pentaclesthe hermit

The 5 of pentacles is being poor in the matter of the heart ( if the question is about love of course) this card is about financial matters, but in regards to feeling : it shows being left out, not having a home to come to. The Hermit is a solitary individual, who could though long for a soul mate, but also someone who’s dedicated to something else in life, and has no wish to fall in love.

The 10 of wands : someone is carrying all the burden of the relationship on his shoulder. It may show an abusive relationship, or someone who’s always victimizing himself. Or maybe just overloaded with work, and is not looking for any other trouble at the moment.

The Tower is actually tricky and should be analysed with the cards around it. Could be a love at first sight thing, but also the brutal ending of a love affair that really alter your view on relationships.

The page of cups is a messenger of love, the very beginning of a love affair, the early states.

10 of cups shows a happy family. the empress is the card of fertility, the mother card.
These 2 together with the ace of wands could indicate the addition of a little one to the family.

Temperance may show a time when you are feeling good with yourself. If you have suffered a break up in the past, you are now sort of having a balanced approach. You may not be ready to have a relationship yet, but you are experiencing peace of mind.

The Hanged Man may show a humanitarian. Someone expecting stuff to happen also, not the kind to make a move, but the kind who’s waiting for the other one to make the move. I have seen it in reading representing someone that was “once bitten twice shy”, yet compassion is there as well. The Star card is indicating a renewal in faith and hope for life as well.

The devil is a card indicating passion in some reading. But you have to look for the cards around it, because this can indicate a passion that is blind. And maybe destructive. Surely not the quiet type.

Any court card appearing in the reading may indicate the type of person around you, the kind of person the universe is sending to you.

well, that’s it for now. Hope this is helpful. I feel I deserve my coffee now. Jayce.
