The July 19th post called Ask my Cards has come to pass -a little over a week after that reading. The cards were right -they are always right.
The question was about a relationship. I am going to quote my entry of that reading to point out what has happened.
“The ship card indicated to me a distance in the relationship, either by miles or within the relationship. Change or some movement has occurred (past spot) between them. It can also mean the man she is involved with travels or deals with the public considerably. Because it is beside the cross card it can also mean a yearning.
THE MAN IN QUESTION DID TRAVEL. THE YEARNING WAS ON HER PART.
The cross card can indicate a “hard test” or finalization of some aspect of the relationship. It is also a card of suffering and sacrifice. Because it is beside the ship card-the anguish can be profound and hidden because of not knowing everything. A karma card.
THIS WAS RIGHT ON…SHE DID NOT KNOW EVERYTHING. THE FINALIZATION OF SOME ASPECT OF THE RELATIONSHIP WAS EXPERIENCED LAST WEEKEND DUE TO AN INCIDENT THAT OCCURRED OF A DELICATE NATURE.
The book card depicted the unseen turn of events. Being beside the cross card, there is almost a fatalistic feeling. It seems a secret (something not known or hidden) will be revealed or discovered in the near future. My friend may be feeling this already as the cross card is in the now (present) position. Being silent about it is best, letting the relationship unfold in it’s own Karmic time but never forgetting that this will happen to what extent it is not known. The explanation will come. THE EXPLANATION DID COME A FEW DAYS AGO…SOMETHING WAS REVEALED. MY FRIEND REMAINED SILENT AND WAITED FOR THINGS TO UNFOLD.
I had the feeling I should get the lady draw another card for clarification. Sometimes this is necessaery so you are not left hanging. You can’t very well tell the person seeking advice that it is a secret, now can you?
Card 4- clarification
#17 The stork (Queen of Hearts)
I nearly choked when I saw this card. This is a multi-dimensional card and should be carefully studied because it can represent another woman other than my friend. I will address the meanings of the stork symbolism. Change coming for definite in the relationship, either because of the influence of another woman or because she is the well kept secret. One of the stork’s meanings is “from the past” or “former situation”. WHAT OCCURRED FROM THE PAST OR FORMER SITUATION WAS A PERSONAL INVOLVEMENT OF THAT MAN WITH SOMEONE CLOSE TO HIM…IT IS UNKNOWN IF IT IS ANOTHER WOMAN YET BUT THE “STORK” CARD CAN REPRESENT A FEMALE FAMILY MEMBER WHICH IT APPEARS IS THE CASE.
Let’s take this a little further -it can mean pregnancy as well in a broad sense with these cards, unlikely but possible. The two people we are talking about in this relationship are middle-aged and unable to produce children. ANALYZING THIS STATEMENT A BIT FURTHER-CHILDREN ARE INVOLVED..HIS.
The stork card in relation to the question asked originally that is of a romantic/sentimental nature points to a reconciliation with a former lover, woman of the past. Taking it one step further it can also mean a new lover at a distance (as the stork card can be travel). THE WOMAN OF THE PAST WOULD BE A FEMALE FAMILY MEMBER AND THIS IS WHAT MY FRIEND WAS TOLD.
As the Queen of Cups, this woman would be a lover of family, sociable and basically a “nice lady”, which means that my very good friend could have been deceived all along for the purpose of emotional exploitation. NOT a pretty picture- I hope that I am not correct in this analysis UNFORTUNATELY MY ANALYSIS WAS CORRECT for my friend’s sake but I also know that I probably am…and must relay those insights to her to prepare her for the “hard test”. THE HARD TEST IS THE SEPARATION BETWEEN HER AND THIS MAN.
The answer is still not crystal clear to me that it is the end of the relationship. Perhaps it is up to her how she handles the explanation that she will receive or that will be revealed. AND THIS POINT SHE IS NOT SURPRISED AS THE CARDS DID PLANT THE “SEED” OF WHAT TO EXPECT. SHE IS RELIEVED BUT IS HAVING A TOUGH TIME ACCEPTING THIS SITUATION.
And that is half the battle of shifting our negative(fear/anger/sadness/hopelessness) energies into positive and rising above our “usual” or addictive pattern of response.” MY FRIEND WANTS TO STRIKE BACK BECAUSE SHE FEELS DECEIVED…AND I CAN’T SAY THAT I BLAME HER…. BUT THAT WON’T CHANGE THE OUTCOME!
