Three of Wands
Your card is the Three of Wands, in which a figure stands looking out across a bay, fjord, or sound. This card indicates that you are looking to the future. Not only are you looking to the future, but you are actively planning for it. You are looking to the far horizon and planning how you will get there, taking practical steps to make a move. This card often indicates an actual physical move or relocation, often across water. You are in a period where you are hopeful about your future and feel as though you have taken the right steps to get to where you want to be. Keep making practical, grounded decisions, and keep your eyes on the far shore.

I would love a card, if you can. (General overview of where life is right now, and where I should be aiming.)

Six of Swords, Reversed
Your card is the Six of Swords, reversed, in which a female figure sits on an open boat surrounded by several swords stuck into the hull. This card is usually indicative of a feeling of stuckness or a sense of leavetaking. Appearing as it does reversed, this card tells me that things are about to become "unstuck" for you. This card often indicates positive movement forward, and can also indicate an actual move of job or home. You may be moving across a body of water, as the boat indicates. It may be difficult to wait, but your waiting is nearly at an end. When things start moving -- and they will, soon -- they will move very quickly. Trust that you will be able to handle whatever comes as a part of that movement, and be ready to get your "sea legs" quickly!

Re: Six of Swords, Reversed
Thank you so much! The six of swords is actually an old friend in some ways, and the hope of things getting unstuck is most promising.

Four of Cups, Reversed
*I have to note that The Tower and the Three of Wands also jumped out of the deck at me when I was pulling your card, so I'm going to tie those in as well*

Your card is the Four of Cups, reversed. In this card, a hand offers a chalice to a troubled or disinterested looking woman who also has three chalices on the bar in front of her. This card often indicates disillusionment in love or romantic relationships. Appearing reversed as it does, this card tells me you may be feeling insecure about your current romantic or sexual relationships. If you are in a polyamorous relationship, you may be questioning whether that is right for you. Or you may be fearful that the spark has gone out of a long term partnership. Since it showed up with the Tower and the Three of Wands, I also sense that you or your partner (or one of your partners) may be contemplating infidelity or otherwise going outside of the relationship. If you are considering this, be aware that the potential fallout will be great, and weigh whether it is worth it for you. There is a definite sense that something is not working. Now is a good time to examine your own needs and move forward clearly.

Re: Four of Cups, Reversed
=/ Not IN any relationships oddly enough, though debating going back to an old flame.

The 'time to examine your needs' thing has been cropping up a lot so... ....yeh.

Re: Four of Cups, Reversed
That actually makes sense in the context of the card, since the Four of Cups sometimes indicates a tendency to focus on what you had rather than what you have, to romanticize the past, or to unfavorably compare current partners with former ones :)

I'd love a reading, please! I'd love to know when/if I'm going to have children?

Queen of Cups, Reversed
Your card is the Queen of Cups, reversed. This Queen is usually the mistress of all emotional and sexual love, and she has a strong fertility energy. Appearing reversed as she does, she tells me that you must address any lingering relationship issues before you will have children. If you have had any sexual trauma in your life, you must work on healing this before you will have children of your own body. There is a definite sense that you *will* have children, but that you have some healing to do. This may involve a trip to your doctor or alternative therapies to address any gynecological or reproductive health issues first. The thing I'm getting from this card is a definite "Yes, but not yet."

Re: Queen of Cups, Reversed
Great, thank you very much!

When you can, will you do a one card for me? I'm concerned about work/finances.

Thank you very much!

Ten of Pentacles
Your card is the Ten of Pentacles. This card indicates a coming period of abundance, in which your hard work is about to pay off. You can expect to come into some money soon. I get the feeling it will be money you have earned -- rather than a lottery ticket win or a gift, for example. You may get a raise or promotion, or you may be moving on to a better paying job. Either way, you or someone in your household is about to be recognized for their hard work and worth. Be open to opportunity and be willing to put in effort to bring this outcome to fruition. If you are considering looking for new work, this is a great time to polish your resume and start applying!

If possible, I'd like a card. [Especially if it foretells that I will be a millionaire any minute now. hehehe] Finances are a concern. Thank you!

Five of Cups
Your card is the Five of Cups, in which a kneeling figure is surrounded by cups. Three have spilled, while two remain upright. The figure has hir back to the full chalices, however. This card tells me that you may be focusing on what you have lost, particularly in the emotional realm. As it relates to finances, this card tells me that you may be focusing on what you do not have rather than what you do have. Take the time to check your budget for "leaks" or to think creatively about ways to increase your income. Your situation may also not be as dire as you think. If you have (or have had) a tendency to bail out loved ones or try to buy their affection, now is a good time to examine those patterns and figure out how to change them. On a practical note, this may also be a good time to declutter and examine where you money has gone -- find a way to turn your excess into cash to help you through.

Please, me? No rush :)

Knight of Wands, Reversed
Your card is the Knight of Wands, reversed. This card in its natural position usually indicates a triumph of reason and intellectual knowledge. Appearing reversed, this card tells me that you are going through a time when you do not have all the answers, and it is OK. If you have been accustomed to being hyper-rational and hiding your emotions, you are entering a period where you will need to confront and change this pattern. Emotion does not equate with weakness, and indeed you will find your greatest strength when you let yourself feel and express your feelings to those closest to you. You do not have to be rational, reasonable, or logical all the time. It is OK to have "weak" or vulnerable moments -- they do not detract from your strength or worth as a person. Be willing to get out of your head and into your heart.

The Hanged Man
Your card is the Hanged Man. This card represents a feeling of suspension or "in betweeness." It may indicate a feeling of stuckness, but I don't get that feeling. This card instead tells me that you are at a moment of equilibrium. You have not reached the end of your journey, but you are at a still point where you can contemplate and rest before undertaking the next step. This period will allow you to cultivate wisdom and insight, so be open to this. Others may see you as stagnant or stuck, but you know (or need to know) that you are simply at a fulcrum point, about to go into a new cycle.

Re: The Hanged Man
Thank you so much.

Hi again! Can I have some general guidance on things please? Life is feeling a little stressful and I'd love to know which direction I should be pointed in! Thank you. :)

Page of Swords
Your card is the Page of Swords. This card indicates that you are entering a period where you are ready to charge forth. You may also be spoiling for a fight. Do not let your enthusiasm or newfound power lead you into arrogance. Defend yourself if necessary, but do not go on the offensive or into attack mode. You are poised to embark on a new path -- something creative, or that you are passionate about. Be willing to put your whole self into this. Do not allow criticism or negativity from others to derail you, and do not be drawn into drama or emotional games.
