QUESTION: A client of mine wanted to know if she would secure a job she applied for. This layout was done a day after her Interview. The Interview went really well and she met all the qualifications required.
I gave her positive encouragement stating that most likely she would be offered the position within the next 3-4 weeks. I based this interpretation on the Knight of Cups in spot 6 of the Celtic Cross which generally rules the immediate future.
The wish card (9 of Cups) fell in spot 5, the crowing card and it promised a ‘yes’ answer to her question.
The 10 of Cups in the 8th spot of ‘others’ suggested a happy outcome and that the panel of people who interviewed her for this job were pleased with her.
The last card, ‘outcome’ Strength showed no signs of a negative or disappointing result from her interview.
The crossing card, Queen of Pentacles, was financially positive depicting the opportunity the client would be employed.
The only card which could have been interpreted as a possible warning is card 9, the King of Swords which traditionally represents fears and hopes. Often this card is also read as a pending influence which would manifest prior to the card 6 (Knight of Cups).
RESULT: The client was NOT chosen for this job.
So what went wrong with this analysis. I was quite disturbed that she did not get the job because the Reading was filled with promise.
We all have had experiences such as this one when we intrepret the cards to mean one thing and the opposite happens. I am trying to look for clues within the cards which I overlooked or did not factor. In all my 40+ years I never advised a client to a favourable answer unless I had many cards which suggested a positive answer. I would rather say, ‘it looks like you will land the job however the cards are not 100% clear’. At least this way the client is totally aware that quite possibly they may not get the job.
I studied card 7 which can represent the client’s attitude about the whole job question. The 6 of Swords suggests she actually believed by securing this job she could move past some of her current financial hardships. Her attitude was in the right place.
I am curious if anyone wishes to comment with their insights into this Reading. I would like to add these comments to share with others. This is how we all learn – from each other.
