Free Tarot Readings Anonymous 214

'Sup miners. Anyone interested in some free readings? I've been practicing and studying tarot for over two years now. I've read for my family, but I mostly read for friends and strangers over the internet. If enough people are interested I'll post my guidelines on how to properly request a reading from me and formulate a question + some background info on tarot for those who are largely unfamiliar with it.

Anonymous 215

I'm very interested. I'm a skeptic, but I've owned tarot decks because I think they can be a good tool for self reflection and to change your mindset. Please post those guidelines!

Oh I'm so game for this out of curiosity and cuteness haha. Tell me more anon!

OP here, I'll start by explaining some basic information.

>What is tarot?

A system of divination, psychological or spritual exploration, and general guidance that originated as an Italian playing card game sometime in the 15th century. There are 78 cards in a deck, mainly split up into the Major and Minor Arcana. The Major Arcana consists of 22 cards which deal with overarching themes in life. The Minor Arcana is split up into four suits, namely Wands, Cups, Pentacles, and Swords which deal with more mundane, day-to-day aspects of life. There are three main versions of decks in use today (but hundreds of decks with different artistic themes,) their defining qualities are their imagery. Marseilles (which consists of more traditional symbolism,) Rider-Waite, and Thoth. Rider-Waite is the most popular of the three, and there are many decks based off of this version. The two decks I own are Rider-Waite based.

Every practicioner has their own opinion on how the system can be utilized. Some enjoy using it as divination, i.e. "fortune-telling" and others prefer to use it as a way of gaining psychological insight. Some therapists have even taken it up as a healing tool to use with patients. I'm a flexible reader, so I don't mind doing a bit of both concepts when it comes to how I use the deck. That being said, there are also a host of explanations on how it works, ranging from the occult to the more concrete and scientific.

>Wait, so are you like, psychic or something?

No, I'm not claiming that. Pretty much anyone can pick up a deck and learn how to read, it just takes time and practice to familiarize yourself with the system and fine-tune your intuition. The 78 cards have their own traditional and prescribed meanings, plus the ones practicioners pick up on themselves when they begin to gain a better understanding of how it works. That's a lot of information to digest. Some people do start off with more of a knack for it than others though.

>>217
That all being said, I'll give my guidelines now.

- I prefer not to read on any matters of physical health, especially if it could relate to death. (Example: I've been having these sharp migraines lately. I did schedule a doctor's appointment but I want to know what might happen after that?) These just make me uncomfortable.
- Relating to the above, every once in awhile someone might give me a question outside of that category that will make me uncomfortable. I reserve the right to decline those as well.
- I prefer to read open ended questions as tarot is better suited to that. Try to ask questions that start with what, how, or why. (Example: What can I do to improve my relationship with my parents?)
- I can read binary questions (ones that are given a yes or no answer, example: Will we get back together?) but that limits the amount of possibilites and information I can give you. Just a heads up.
- I'll read on matters that pertain to the future, but I am of the opinion that this can change depending on actions or circumstances. Take what I say with as much salt as necessary.
- I'm certainly not a beginner at this but I am still learning and I do make mistakes at times. Try to give constructive criticism if I fuck something up. I enjoy feedback whether positive or negative.
-Sometimes readers and querents aren't able to connect well at all. If that is the case, I can completely miss the mark. My apologies.
- A lot of people tend to ask about love and relationships, which can get pretty boring to read after awhile. I'll do them, just keep them at a fair minimum.

To request a reading give:
>A nickname, anything I can refer to you as.
>your question

I'll do what I can tonight before I go to bed if I get any responses, and I'll check up on this thread periodically when I have free time and fulfill some requests.

You/SO/Connection: Queen of Cups / Ten of Wands / The Magician reversed
Situation/Block: King of Pentacles / Ace of Swords
Advice: Ace of Wands / Five of Pentacles
Mutual Goals: Knight of Cups

I'm guessing your S/O is having a hard time accomplishing their goals outside of the relationship, my bet is relating to career and financial matters, which is straining your chemistry together. S/he seems to be falling short on their potential, resulting in frustration and some selfish behavior when you're together. You both seek to have a passionate emotional connection with each other and you seem to be pulling your weight, but they're a bit too stressed and laden with responsibilities to be a better partner for you at this time. This seems to focus a lot on those external influences.

The advice that I'm getting for that which you can pass on, is they may be focusing too much on the theory of how to carry things out and not on the execution itself resulting in some delays. Really the message here is to know when to "just do it," and it also speaks that their placing too much importance on these things and should unburden themselves a bit and lighten up. It will make things a lot easier for them and improve your relationship.

I'll do all three for you, fam. The second one focuses more on the psychological factors so I feel okay to do it.

>>What is holding me back and how can I get more control over my life and emotions?


Situation/Block: Six of Wands / Seven of Swords reversed
Advice: Strength reversed / Six of Pentacles reversed

Huh, okay. This is interesting. Half of this spread speaks explicitly of some kind of theft, in the sense that someone has taken too much from you, and you're lacking the inner strength to stand up for what is rightfully yours. The thing is that this can solve most of your problems, but you're not asserting yourself. Alternatively, it may even return to you naturally, but either way the advice is to grow some balls because your timidity is holding you back in more than just this aspect.

Honestly, I'm in interested in hearing back from you on how this one sounds. I rarely get spreads that are this straight-forward, and this is a rather atypical situation in general.

>>Am I getting too comfortable in my acceptance of my illnesses?


Six of Wands. The Devil reversed. Five of Cups reversed.

Yes. Let me explain. You've already recovered enough that it doesn't hold much control over you at this point. Things are beginning to get back into place mentally and emotionally, you're just allowing yourself to get too caught up in a negative loop of thoughts. I'm assuming you've had some bouts with depression, correct? Second time I've pulled Six of Wands for you. There's nothing holding you back but yourself at this point.

>>What area of my life should I be focusing on the most right now?


Two of Wands reversed. Knight of Pentacles. Page of Cups reversed.

Focus on work, if you're unemployed get a job. I suppose also not to make any big, long-term plans and goals for now. Baby steps. Focus on getting yourself back into the swing of things. Page of Cups reversed also advises against pursuing any matters of the heart for now.

Nice, what I got for the first two tie into each other well.

>>What area of my life should be the most important to me right now?

>>Should I spend more time on self-improvement, or should I enjoy what I've already got?

Six of Cups. Knight of Pentacles reversed. Knight of Swords reversed.

Ooo, alright. At this point due to timing and circumstances, it looks like you're at a standstill with progress in most areas. Take some time off and catch up with family or old friends. Reminisce on old memories, and make new ones. You'll enjoy it, and it will give you something fun to do in the meantime.

Death. Two of Pentacles reversed.

Yah, you've already put enough change into action that taking on more would be a bit too much for you to handle at this point and won't result in much. Focus on enjoying yourself.

>>Will my relationship with my current SO succeed? Will we get married?


This will require me to pull more cards, and take more time and energy as with the first anon. I'll do this when I return tomorrow or in the next few days when I'm free, as well as any other requests, and hopefully I'll get to read some feedback. I'm tired.

Goodnight y'all.

Boy have I got something to say to that. I'm dealing with multiple unhealthy friendships that make me walk on eggshells and making me apologize just out of exhaustion and not wanting to deal with all the aggression focused on me.

I know what I should do in all aspects of my life but I just don't know how I can get there because GAD and MDD has taken over my life for a decade and I'm only just starting to explore the person I could be without that..

I'm at a point where I could hold down a part-time job or home office work, but I'm frightened of fucking up again because my physical illness is unpredictable and doesn't allow me to work in many environments. I want to work, but I'm afraid I'll fail again.

>Baby steps. Focus on getting yourself back into the swing of things.


That's what I'm doing right now and it's been helping me greatly.

>Page of Cups reversed also advises against pursuing any matters of the heart for now.

I'm in a happy LDR relationship with the best boyfriend I've ever had, so I'll interpret this as a "don't change anything for now". Does that sound ok?

Hey, thanks for taking the time to reply.

>I'm frightened of fucking up again because my physical illness is unpredictable and doesn't allow me to work in many environments. I want to work, but I'm afraid I'll fail again.

Yeah, that's how I typically am when it comes to these sorts of things, but I've found that fear of what could happend is even more of a limitation than what actually does. At some point you just have to clear your head and go with it instead of thinking of all the things that can go wrong.

>I'm in a happy LDR relationship with the best boyfriend I've ever had, so I'll interpret this as a "don't change anything for now". Does that sound ok?

Ha, that was my bad. I tend to assume people are single way too often. I'll change my interpretation on that card to stay down-to-earth and keep your feelings in order, otherwise your emotions can cripple you from making too much progress.

>Thank you so much, Anon. I appreciate the time and effort very much.

You're welcome, and good luck with all of that. I'm glad you found it helpful.

>>226
I pull information from a lot of sources, and most of all just practice every now and then. Learning how to actually read is more so a hands on process. There aren't many sources that will tell you exactly how to think and interpret.

>are there any books you recommend?

For a beginner I'd recommend something introductory that covers basic topics.
http://www.learntarot.com/ has free lessons online, and people can do them at their own pace. There are also tons of other introductory books, and most decks come with small pamphlets with the basic meanings or even their own books. There also tons of webpages with information on tarot online.

For someone that has most of the basic information down and would like to go deeper into the history and symbolism, I'd recommend the books 78 Degress of Wisdom by Rachel Pollack and Holistic Tarot by Benebell Wen.

>>233
I don't have much experience with oracle cards, though I was gifted an angel deck that I admittedly rarely use. Personally they're not for me, but I suppose some people can find them more flexible to work with due to the fact that most oracle decks are unique in system and symbolism, and let in more room for intuition.

As for other divination methods, they have their own areas they're best suited to. I've also played around with pendulums and i-ching, and I tried tasseomancy quite a bit. They're interesting to work with, but I have the most experience with tarot.

No, thank you for the reading! It was definitely very interesting and very accurate, and, again, I say that as a skeptic. Who owns Tarot decks. Lol.
By the way, what are your favorite decks? Mine are Rider-Waite and Thoth because I'm basic. I kind of want to get back into it now. Thank you for the inspiration.
What I gathered from your overall reading is that I've got nothing to fear but fear itself, which is the mindset I've been trying to get myself into because I realize that my mental issues not only keep me back emotionally but also exacerbate the psychosomatic syndromes of my chronic illness. Getting a push into that direction from a friendly internet stranger who knows nothing about my condition gives me hope.

>By the way, what are your favorite decks?
I'd say the two I own are amongst my favorites. I have the Linestrider, which is pictured in the OP image and has a very consistent and pleasing aesthetic. My first deck was the Aquarian tarot, which I was drawn to for the medieval imagery but clean and modern art style. They're both Raider-Waite based which I mentioned before, but I guess when I was starting out I was put off from purchasing a standard RW pack because it looks rather boring and unappealing to me. Aside from that, I've been eyeing the Prisma Visions for about a year now. The art is fantastic and I like the way the creator set up each of the suits to display one scene when put together, like in pic related. Thoth has some beatiful cards but it isn't consistent enough for me to like all that much. I've been looking for a good recreation, though there aren't that many of Thoth in the first place.

>What I gathered from your overall reading is that I've got nothing to fear but fear itself, which is the mindset I've been trying to get myself into because I realize that my mental issues not only keep me back emotionally but also exacerbate the psychosomatic syndromes of my chronic illness.

Yeah it spelled that out to me pretty clearly. I think you'll be fine if you just act more often rather than over-thinking. I actually had to address something similar to that recently when I finally decided to get back into school after being a NEET for over a year. Of course I was really worried that I'd fail if I tried again, but I had to push that feeling to the side eventually if I wanted to move forward. Again you're welcome, and I'm flattered that I inspired you to get back into this whole tarot thing.

Queen of Wands reversed. Knight of Cups. Eight of Swords reversed. Four of Pentacles reversed. Eight of Pentacles.

Looks like you have a lot of bitter feelings about a past or an ongoing relationship. You didn't specify if you were single, so I'll keept that detail ambiguous for now. Whatever is taxing on you, you're holding on to it a bit too much, and it looks like it's holding you back in more areas than just your love life. Simoply put the advice is to let go and realize that you can have a better love life in the future if you make better choices (and if you're involved with someone,you deserve a lot better than who you're with,) and focus on the things that you've been putting off for now.

I'm recently single, but still have feelings for my ex (who's a lovely man and I don't feel bitter about it at all, just really sad and a bit hurt). So I guess the advice is "suck it up and move on", huh? I guess I knew it, although I was hoping there was a possibility of us getting back together in the future, when we both grow up a bit lol.

Oh, huh. Thank's for letting me know.

>So I guess the advice is "suck it up and move on", huh? I guess I knew it, although I was hoping there was a possibility of us getting back together in the future, when we both grow up a bit lol.

Yeah, the general feel was that you're holding on to tightly to something that's holding you back. Though now that I think about it the Knight of Cups might be referring to a strong possibility of you guys getting back together, you just shouldn't focus on it so much that you let yourself fall behind in other parts of your life.

>>228
>If I'm going to reach my goal(s) this year. If not, can I know when? I'm trying so hard.
The High Priestess. The Moon. Page of Wands reversed.

I don't think so. I'd say you're having a hard time going because this is actually an excellent time to be focusing inside and maturing mentally and spiritually instead of putting anything into action. That might be subconsciously holding you back. I think that the reversed Page of Wands definitely indicates that you won't be getting it all done this year, and you'll experience some missed opportunities and setbacks. I can't give you an exact estimation of when you can expect to meet your goals, but I can give you a general idea.

Ace of Cups. The World reversed.
Hmm, okay this tells me that you won't exactly finish everything up, although you'll get awfully close. It's probably because you'll reach enough emotional fulfillment that it won't be a priority for you anymore. Tl;dr you won't exactly get to where you want to be, but you'll reach a point of contentment before then anyway.

>Is insisting on this love worth it?

I'm a bit confused on what you mean by that. I'll still read on it if you can clear that up.

>Present Dynamics
You/Him/Connection: The Star reversed / Strength reversed / King of Swords reversed
>Future Dynamics
You/Him/Connection: Nine of Pentacles reversed / The Empress / Queen of Pentacles
Advice: Six of Swords / King of Cups

Eh, I think you're both having some doubts at this point about the relationship, which may be skewing communication between the two of you. So I think you obviously need to be more open and reassuring about how you feel about each other.
>What can I do to visit my boyfriend, and what can I do to make my relationship last?
The advice cards literally just emphasize that traveling to see him will strengthen and balance your relationship. There's not much that explicitly tells how you can do that, but other cards point to an unwillingness to receive help from him at present, which might be something you should consider if you want to make it work. Given the future dynamics, that will obviously change as I see him getting really in touch with his feminine, nurturing side to help you through a rough patch in your life, emotionally and financially I would assume. Seems like it will grow to be a good relationship after the two of you get over some speed bumps.

Looks like how the relationship will go is kind of dependent on his whims at this point. I say that because it seems like you're reluctant to make a final decision, and with that in mind the rest would depend on whether he chooses to keep being a dick or not. I could see things falling apart eventually if that's the case, and at that point it's more advised that you realize that's it just not going to work out anymore and close the book on that chapter of your life, things would go more smoothly that way. Of course you can keep riding it out, but you'd really have to brace yourself for what's going to be thrown at you.
So to answer your question, it can be well worth it if he makes the right behavioral changes, but if things continue to escalate you should consider moving on.

Alright, I'm going to be a bit critical of you, but this is for your benefit so don't shoot the messenger. Looks you have enough talent to bring you a good amount of success at the beginning, but you might be overestimating your own ability and aiming your aspirations too high for your present skillset. Fact of the matter is that it isn't enough to carry you through an entire career. You should steer clear of arrogance and be willing to hone your craft by learning from others who are more experienced than you if you want lasting success. Projected outcome might actually be to your benefit, in that you'll snap out of this current attitude that will hold you back in the long run.

>Will I ever live abroad (for a short period of time)? What can I do to help this?

Four of Swords reversed. Two of Wands. Three of Swords reversed.
The chances are pretty good actually. You seem like the type of person that doesn't like to stay in one place for too long anyway, so it'll just be something you'll eventually have the strong urge to make happen. I drew the reversed three of swords for advice which is kind of strange, but I'll take it that the move will be a hard transition that you'll just need to get over with. Kind of like ripping off a band-aid.

>Will I ever have my dream weight?

The Hierophant reversed. Nine of Wands. The Chariot reversed.
Oh, hmm. My guess is that you will through sheer virtue of being heavily fixated on it. You should find a better way to go about it, just seems like it's not the healthiest of mindsets to have.

Ouch! To be honest, I found this kinda weird when I first read it, because I still am not "out there" (I do have an instagram and fb page, but they are pretty lowkey). I've been wanting to create a youtube for me, but I am always thinking that I am still not good enough for it, so I guess my mind is kind of aligned with the cards? lol I admit I am a culprit of daydreaming a lot, like.. "Oh, imagine if I get like 20k followers on youtube?", but I never took it too serious. I guess
I guess that maybe I should stop with the kind of thought like "If Holly Brown can do it, I can do it".
Once one webcomic of mine went kinda viral though, a lot of pages posted it uncredited (and I didn't even sign it because i didn't thought people outside my personal fb would see it)
But anyway, I am glad about the "potential" part. All I know is that know I am gonna study ever harder and git gud indeed before creating my yt channel.

>The chances are pretty good actually.

Nice! This motivated me to study harder for my JLPT haha

>but I'll take it that the move will be a hard transition that you'll just need to get over with

Oh, I always think how it will be hard to leave my family (especially my mom, she's pretty sensitive, my sister is currently abroad and she always get teary when she thinks about her) and my boyfriend. I guess that would be the hard part. I'd probably try to skype them weekly

>My guess is that you will through sheer virtue of being heavily fixated on it. You should find a better way to go about it, just seems like it's not the healthiest of mindsets to have.


Oh, well. This is kinda bittersweet. The second sentence is spot-on, though. I am not ana, but I don't have the happiest relationships with my body, either. The time I had my lowest weight was because I was having acute insomnia and going to protests a lot, so not only would I walk/run away to exhaustion, but I was under big stress. Yet I was happy because I could see my hipbones through my shorts. Bad shit. I am trying to be healthier now, but sometimes I still want to crash diet.

But hey, thank you! Sorry for this long ass and bloggy shit. You are awesome, tarot anon!

Hey anon, this is really nice idea for a thread, Ive been curious about tarot for a while now. You can call me J :)

>Will things work out so that I am able go on the holiday of my dreams next summer? or maybe something different, but still cool?

>Skip this is makes you uncomfortable but I am wondering if my sex life will pick up anytime soon?
>Is the career path I am beginning to go down something that will I will stick with? Im quite stressed about this right now, if context helps I switched college courses kind of on whim and Im unsure about where I will end up, Im glad with my decision but I cant see myself working forever in this field forever

Nah, I don't see it as a chore. It's a hobby that I enjoy, but can't always devote enough time to, so it sux that I can't keep up with it as much as I'd want is all.

>>231
>What am I doing wrong in terms of my relationship? Is it worth it to try to make it work?
I've kept coming back to this one for the past week, but it seems like every time I start on it I can't focus on the question enough to maintain a good connection while shuffling. I guess I should take a hint and skip this for now and move on to the rest of them. Sorry. :( I had an easier time doing the other one for you.

>Did my mom resent or hate me?


>Yes/No: Six of Cups reversed / Page of Cups

>How She Really Felt: Four of Cups reversed

Doesn't seem like it. Just seems like she was a bit regretful and uncertain if you were open to her. Kind of like she really want to reconnect with you emotionally but there was this distance between the two of you that she has, or had a hard time getting over.

>>232
>Will I get into my number one choice university?
>Will I get the job I'm currently interviewing for?
I'm assuming you've probably already heard back on these, so I'll skip them unless you're still looking for an answer.

>>Will I ever be happy?

>The Lovers. Judgment. The High Priestess reversed. Four of Wands reversed.
It's a huge possibility yes, but it comes at a rather steep price. You're going to be given a choice, the right decision will require that you completely change directions in life and sacrifice a little, but it should lead you to a better place in the long run. You're being advised to follow your gut on this, so you'll know the right choice to make, the more difficult part will be summoning up enough courage to follow through with it. Good luck.

>>Is 2017 the year where I find myself?

Yes/No: King of Wands reversed. Ace of Cups reversed.
Not quite. It might actually end in a very emotionally volatile way, maybe due to some unrequited love, but won't be pleasant either way.

>The Star reversed. Nine of Pentacles reversed. Seven of Wands.

You won't have an easy time maintaining that attitude, it could take a lot out of you, and you'd feel discouraged at some points. Of course, be very confident and resolute if you want to avoid some awkward situations.

Wondering if Tarot-chan would give me a little insight into something. I read tarot for myself and pulled a card that made me a little anxious recently.

I did a celtic cross spread and the last card I pulled (future/final outcome) was the nine of pentacles reversed. I know some people don't read reversals but this gave me quite a bit of anxiety because I wasn't sure who it was referring to.

Just for some clarification - I am in a relationship with someone who is going through serious financial difficulty at the moment. I am doing -okay- financially. I am in a part-time job.

I was scared this card was a warning to me to watch my finances or if it was referring to my boyfriend in some way or another. I found it quite an odd card to pull for a future/final outcome.

I'd really appreciate some feedback.

I'm not the OP but I gave it a whack. The descriptions are as listed in Eden Gray's Complete Guide to Tarot.

General Atmosphere
Six of Pentacles
A good man, probably a merchant, gives money to the needy with balance and judgement. From a good heart, he shares with others.
‘Alms dispensed with justice, gifts, inheritance. Gain in material undertakings. Others will share with you justly; you will receive what you deserve.'

Opposing Forces for Good or Evil
Knight of Cups
A stately knight in armor, but not warlike. He wears a winged helmet, sign of the imagination and of the dual-sexed nature of Hermes. He carries his cup firmly as he approaches a stream.
‘A young man who is graceful, poetic, but indolent. He is a dreamer of sensual delights. Can mean the bringer of a message, a proposition, or an invitation.’

Basis of the Matter
Seven of Rods/Wands Inverted
The youth’s stance is that of a yeoman fighting for his land. Six enemies are attacking from below.
‘Ignorance, pretense. The querent is threatened. Caution against indecision.’

Past Influence
Ten of Pentacles
A patriarch rests at ease before an archway on which is inscribed a coat of arms. His family and dogs are with him, signifying the solidarity of an ancient family carrying on in prosperity.
‘Riches, inheritance. Attention to family matters, interest in one’s ancestry. A problem concerning a will or pension. May refer to the acquiring of a house or other property.’

Represents Possible Future
Four of Cups
A young man sits in contemplation under a tree, oblivious of the three filled cups before him. From above he is also offered another cup, which he disdains.
‘A stationary period in one’s life, weariness, surfeit. Dissatisfaction with material success. Reevaluation of one’s earthly pleasures. Kindness from others.’

Things That Will Come to Pass
Seven of Pentacles
A strong young farmer leans on his hoe and gazes at the pentacles growing on the vine at his right. Will he receive the harvest from his work?
‘Pause during the development of an enterprise. Unprofitable speculations. Loss of a promising fortune. Disappointment. Anxiety about a loan. Success not attained.’

Fears
Temperance
‘Adaptation, tempering coordination, self-control, modification. Working in harmony with others, good management. What we have imagined will come to pass. Successful combinations will be achieved.’

Family Opinion/Environment
Eight of Pentacles
The sculptor’s apprentice is carving out a pentacle; he exhibits other on the post beside him. Compare this card with the Three of Pentacles, in which the sculptor has become a mature artist and receives his reward.
‘Learning a trade or profession. The beginning of a profitable undertaking. Employment or commission to come. Skill in material affairs, handiwork, and the arts—sometimes remaining only in the apprenticeship phase.’

Hopes
Two of Cups Inverted
A young man and maiden make their vows of affection, each holding a cup filled with the good things of life. Two serpents entwine a staff, the phallic emblem of life’s creative fire. The serpents represent a balance between good and evil; above them, the lion of carnal desires has taken wing.
‘False love, dissipation, folly, violent passion, disunity, misunderstanding.’

Final Outcome
Eight of Swords Inverted
Again a maiden is ‘hoodwinked’ (blindfolded) and this time she is also bound. (note: this is making reference to the Two of Swords) She stands in a marshy place surrounded by swords. In the distance there is a castle high on a rocky cliff.
‘New beginnings now possible. Impulsive, generous nature. Relaxation from fear. Freedom.’

So…if I had to make an interpretation based off've this spread, it sounds like there's some reluctance to move away from the life and area that you're already familiar with, but there are good business opportunities for you or your husband in Canada. I'd say that the transitional period is going to be a bit rough, as the Four of Cups and Seven of Pentacles seem to go hand-in-hand with one another–you might not immediately receive the rewards that you expect out of the move, and the fact that we see an inverted Two of Cups in 'Hopes' may mean that you fear it's going to put a strain on your relationship.
(When I learned the Celtic Cross spread, this position was described to me as 'Hopes and Fears', whereas the book I'm using at the moment says it's just 'Hopes', and that the place I originally learned to specify for the querent is 'Fears'. This text is from the 1970s, so it may just be out of date, but make of that what you will.) The overall outcome seems to suggest that you'll be able to power through it to your benefit, though.

Im >>252 and ive been checking the thread every day to see if I have a reply lmao im very curious about tarot! I wouldn't mind a reading from someone else :)

I always wondered, if you ask different readers the same question and get different cards, (which ig is quite likely to happen?) it doesn't matter bc it about the way they are interpreted, not the card the card itself right? or maybe that just never happens?

I'm hopefully going to start learning how to do readings soon, maybe sometime in the future I'll be able to help out anons here as well :) Maybe there should be a tarot general thread that is more for discussion?

Though original OP doesn't seem to be here, I'll post my questions for later checks. Thanks in advance to anyone who answers! Please call me Minka.

> I feel like I'll die alone honestly. What kind of man would ever fall in love with me?

> Will I be able to carve out a (relatively) successful life in the country I plan to move to? Or will I move somewhere else or stay put?
> Will the friendships I have wih my two best friends prove to be unbreakable? We all live in different countries and I'm scared I'll lose two of the most fulfilling relationships I ever had.
> Did he throw out the present that I asked him to ship out for my friend? And if not what is he waitin for?? (Tedious question I'm sorry…)

this spread looks kind of worrying imo.

the querent card is the page of pentacles, which corresponds with new beginnings in the material sphere.
your independence is tied to the moon, which has connotations of deception as well as intuition. So although you may feel strongly drawn to this person, there is a possibility they are not being totally honest with you about their character.
balance–meaning whether the relationship is based on mutual respect and trust–is the three of swords. imo this is one of the top three worst cards to get, signifying heartbreak and betrayal of trust. so there is defintely a disconnect there.
creativity, whether this person allows you to express yourself fully, is a solid six of pentacles. i usually interpret this card as signifying generosity, so it may be that this person encourages you to express yourself in ways that are beneficial towards others?
Foundation/security is the hanged man. in this spread i would say that represents self-sacrifice, giving up your own interests for the sake of others.
Adaptstion: page of cups.
Someone who is emotionally immature yet passionate. Change may be met with opposition.
Harmony: Eight of Pentacles
A card signifying apprenticeship or hard work. I'd say this would signify the difficulty of reconciling with this person, if you happen to get into a disagreement with them.
Seeker - whether this relationship will be fulfilling to you or not–came out as judgement, which is a weird card in this situation. i think maybe it refers to your own judgement in whether this relationship is worthwhile or viable, and how much you're willing to do to make it work.
motivation - the chariot. signifies whether the relationship will push you in a new and positive direction. The Chariot is a symbol of control over acceleration, which means that whatever happens is going to happen fast, but in a way that will develop your sense of mastery over the situation, i imagine.
humanity–whether other people benefit from your union–is the five of cups. i would say that there's definitely some discouragement from those around you when it comes to the situation.
Wisdom - the High Priestess- imo is a positive card. although the priestess is a solitary figure, the card denotes feminine wisdom, mysticism, or independence. It's sometimes thought of as the feminine counterpart to the hierophant. so whatever happens, you'll be learning something from this.
Co-Creator of relationship–the hidden crux of the matter–turned out to be the magician. So there's something to do with manipulation or control in this matter.
Most likely outcome is knight of swords. Hastiness needing to be tempered by responsibility and preparation. Ignoring needs in pursuit of your goals. Be careful with this 'un.
