Let’s suppose we will use the Cross House meaning of pain and suffering.
The Bouquet card is a pleasing energy. It’s about gifts, invitations, fondness and of course, the Queen of Spades refined personality. What I mean by refined is skillful. She definitely is experienced.
Whatever the situation is the nature of the Cross House does not change. It’s still about pain and suffering. With the Bouquet’s influence passing through the situation is not as bad as it could be. There is a pleasant interlude or pause in one’s suffering. The burden is lightened but it is still a burden. The Queen of Spades could actually be someone you know that is experiencing a rough time.
Bouquet + Cross – this duo is taken out of the context of the layout to illustrate possible combined meanings. When you look at these two cards the Queen of Spades could be heading into a fateful situation. This duo can mean a religious invitation or event. Some of the pleasant energy of the Bouquet card will be minimized with the Cross card’s influence. You can probably think of some other meanings.
Cross + Bouquet – the Queen of Spades is a Karmic connection. The pain and suffering from situation which is probably revealed by the card preceding the Cross card can let out a sigh of relief. It’s a blessing in disguise.
The Cross card is pretty strong but it’s meaning can be modified depending on the situation. When reading the Cross House the core meaning remains the same.
