Example of how to offer readings:>Hi! I'm giving out 10 readings for anons today. My requirements are your age, sign, sex, and your query.>I'm offering 5 readings, all I need is for you to tell me a color and your initials.
Remember to disclose what method of divination or what deck you're using. If there's certain questions you won't awnser (death and sickness related for example) be sure to disclose it as well.
I want to try!
Gender: female (obv)
Query: Am I on the right path in my life right now or does it require some change?
I need to unpack my stuff, my tarot deck is at the bottom of a box. I'm not a great reader but I like to draw a daily card. >>144820
I'll bite too!
Female. Will living in this city give me energy or drain me?
>>144827>The lovers, six of cups, three of wands, hierophant
Basically, yes you are on your right path! I feel like you've been recently studying or attaining new knowledge, and you seem to be having good relationships with people and empathy towards others. This path is a good one. It even has a hint of a new beginning for you!>>144829>King of pentacles, four of cups, knight of wands, temperance
This is a so-so situation. It's more like you're thinking too much about the what ifs and have your head on the clouds. You want to go head on into action but life is telling you to slow down and take your time to do things. You will likely be successful in this town, but it will take the time that it needs.
Oh boy, this is gud.
Query: does he love me?
Answer me too, tarot-sama!
Query: Am I making the right decision for my future by choosing this college?
Query: will I meet new people soon and change for the better?
>>144845>ace of cups, hermit, page of swords, king of cups
Doesn't seem like you'll be meeting anyone soon, but you are already taking the steps to emotionally heal, which is a good sign. Page of swords is oddly the card of the gossipers or hypervigilation, so there's something going on with that.>card about gossip on a gossip imageboard
I mean it fits lol
I know you've already done your 5, but I'll leave this here for the next person to come along!!!
female, wondering if I've made the right recision uprooting my life and moving halfway around the world
I can do yours as a last one!>the moon, seven of pentacles, ace of swords, justice
Perhaps you are a little naive about the plan, but things will turn out good in the end. You have to be smart and fight for what you want though. What you pull in will be what you recieve.

Query: Will my art career take off?
Thank u in advance!!!
Since there seems to be no other readers available I'll answer some more queries!>>144870>two of pentacles, five of pentacles, ace of cups
I'm sad to say no anon, you won't be having much riches from this path… but you'll be super happy. So take it as you will!>>144873>five of swords, nine of pentacles, three of wands
Hmm, not really anon. Right now you're on your own journey, learning to be whole by your own. Some people have put you down/made you suffer in your past, so that comes first

dear tarot anons, I hope I’m not being too demanding, but I have a request.
Query: would it be wise to get into tarot card reading, investing time into horoscopes or finding wether I’m an empath?
Second query: I’m hesitant to read into and discover Buddhism, am I ready for it?
These topics have been intriguing me but I’m not sure if it’s right for me. I’m not sure how to explain what I mean.
I used to think I was an empath until I found out empaths are just a meme. But you could try it out, I mean you don't lose anything.
About tarot, for me it is a fun hobby, for others it is more of an spiritual thing. It depends on your view of it, but I think it is worth trying for fun.
The way I learnt was by giving free readings while memorizing the card meanings.

thank you so much lovely tarot anon!!
i'm a little sad but i should be focusing on myself, and i will try to
Anon, you are an MVP. Thanks!
I am female.
> what will my love life look like during this year?
I'm assuming the rest of the year, so…>queen of pentacles, seven of wands, king of swords
A mayor theme of being on the defensive side, you need to let go of your worries in order to feel more in tune with what you need. Be careful with coming across as manipulative.
>>144900>Page of swords, queen of cups, the chariot
Yes! This will be a journey that will lead to you feeling better and more mature. Just be sure to focus on your goals, try not to get distracted on the way.>>144902
First query>temperance, wheel of fortune, six of pentacles
It starts slow, then it takes a very unexpected turn, it gives me the idea that it has something to do with money/gifts, so it turns out good in the end.
Second query>Hermit, eight of wands, four of pentacles
You're someone who is more on the introverted side. This would be usually something seen as bad, but it isn't, there's plenty of people who preffer someone shy or mellow. When you finally let people in, you move quickly and can be passionate. You also like financial stability and like saving money so that's something people like too.
Now for your question, I got into tarot for myself because I really wanted to know what the cards meant whenever I got a read so it just came to be in a very natural way, I think it is worthy of checking out if you feel an affinity for it!
File: 1595586133328.jpg (34.36 KB, 500x375, 1587590041141.jpg)
Thank you so much for the reading anon! I will have a further look into tarot as well since I do seek it out a lot!

wish I could help out with readings but not there yet. Cheers tarot-sama for the splendid work!
>>144961>the hierophant, two of cups, death
You are someone who likes conventional love stories, as in you would rather live a romance leading to marriage than a one night stand. You're really wishing for a good partner right now, and it seems like eventually you will get a good soulmate in your life. But before that, a major change needs to happen, as in, the beginning of your own journey.>>144978
Five of cups… yes anon, I'm sorry.
Sorry for the long query tarotanons. Feel free to answer or not!
Sign: Taurus sun/Virgo moon
Query: I turned 22 a few months ago and it seems like my early 20s have taught me that giving up on finding love and resigning myself to being alone has been the best for my mental health. Some of my friends think it’s unhealthy for me to give up like that, but I’m a little bitch and would rather be content existing on my own than be constantly disappointed by every man I meet. At this point, I can’t picture a future with a partner, but I’m also afraid that as I get older I might become lonely or feel like I’m missing out. Should I continue with this mindset of building a solitary femcel life or are my friends right?
first>ace of swords, six of swords, king of swords
Things are very complicated between you two at the moment and both of you have your walls up. The middle card is telling me it is time to bail out and break up with him.
Second>eight of pentacles, two of pentacles, page of swords
It doesn't tell me a certain quantity of years, it more reffers to this: you need time to learn, work on yourself, your life, your career. You need to learn to put your priorities first and straight and have things in balance. It's telling you to be clever about it.>>145076
without cards: You're setting yourself up to hurt yourself even more through loneliness gurl. I think you're still very young. I come and go from this mentality from time to time. 22 is like, not very mature yet and you do need time to let go and mature and live your life. Don't completely close off like an incel lol, just take your time.
Cards>Three of swords, tower, high priestess
Ouch, the cards are in favor of the femcel life lol
Basically, you're really suffering from a broken heart here. This is telling you to really really take your time until you emotionally heal. It's gonna take a while but won't be forever. But you need your time alone for the time being.>>145100>two of swords, king of cups, seven of cups
You're living inside the delusion that things will magically change if you just wish for them and turning a blind eye on the bigger problem. You need calm, clarity and control over your emotions. Until you achieve this (and I'm thinking this has to do with getting help), you'll keep being wishy washy and not doing any progress.

I'm so far the only anon in this thread reading tarot queries but I think I wanna practice something else besides tarot, is anyone up for tasseomancy (tea leaves reading)?
Such a cool thread, tarot-anons! If anyone have any time for my queries (:
1st Query: I'm finally making the move to go from full time to part time in my career. Will this career move be a huge mistake?
2nd Query: Will I ever be happy with myself?

If anyone is interested in a tea leaf reading, basically you have to make tea with leaves floating in the water (it can be you opening the tea package on top of the hot water). Think of your query that you want to ask while you drink it, then post a picture once you drank it all, like pic related
I'll read the shape relating to your query!
>>145115>the moon, queen of pentacles, ace of swords
Right now the cards seem to indicate that it is not the right moment to change it, because you're having a lot of wishful thinking about this. You need to take care about other things first and you need to remain calm if things don't go your way. After your vision clears out, you'll start planning out and going along a better plan.>Page of pentacles, 4 of wands, the emperor
Yes! You are on a path of finding wisdom and being happy, so yes you will. This reading is for some reason giving you the advice of looking for the assistance of a wise male figure in your life (could be your dad, grandfather, etc)>>145119
First query, I'll assume it is fort the rest of the year>temperance, queen of pentacles, six of cups
You won't decrease neither increase, but you will likely reconnect with a figure from your past, it can be an old time friend, a childhood friend, or a sibling/cousin/family member, seems nice to me!>ace of cups, four of cups, ten of pentacles
Someone very in tune with his/her emotions, very emotionally available, or just very sweet and caring. This person is kinda oblivious, inexperienced or awkward though, but they have so much more to give and it will feel amazing to be with them.

This is my personal experience, but I think to get into tarot you should ignore those guides that just push the idea of it being "a magical tool of the gods" waaay too much, it's just annoying and silly
Just grab a Rider Waite deck and start with that, don't get into any other very stylized decks because you need to learn the core meaning of each card first
After getting more familiar with the illustrations, try to look at each one of them and get the general idea of what they could mean, some of them are more obvious in their meaning than others, so take a wild guess
Then just google "meaning of x tarot card" and just compare the meaning that a bunch of websites give you, and get the general vibe going on
After that then you can dig even deeper and deeper into what each card means
And something that really helped me was giving readings for free, so you can try that with friends

So, I wanted to give this a try.
My query is "Is there genuine happiness in this? Is it worth my effort or is better for me to just quit while I'm ahead?"
Is that info enough, or should I add something more?
Thanks for the reading anon! I'm >>145076
. I appreciate the genuine advice you gave me as well :) I'll try not to become a complete femcel, but take my time to heal and figure my shit out.

Hey, I'll be offering 5 readings with the Santa Muerte deck. Just give me an open-ended question or theme!
Asking about my art career
Female, 28, african american
Will I ever get a qt bf?
Hiii I got three questions if that's okay
1.Will I ever marry? Or chose my career instead?
2.Who will I marry? Will it be a girl or a guy?
3.Will I marry L or not?
Sign is Scorpio and I'm a bi girl
Sorry anon I took some time to answer
Alright, without futher ado, I think there's genuine happiness in your ordeal, you're just a bit shy or insecure. A lot of external forces are driving you to want to quit because they seem stronger and make you afraid with whatever they're saying to you. But you have to protect this thing that is precious to you, and keep it alive. You'll be happy in the end.
I saw a tadpole and some beasts.

I'd be happy to do some readings with the super cute Bowring Heart tarot.
Only open-ended questions please, I don't like yes/no because I feel they're unhelpful. (I.e. "How can I improve my job prospects?" is fine, "Will I get the job at X Company?" is not.)
Will you listen to my query tarot anon?

Query: What will my future look like in 10 years? Am I doing the things that I love?

File: 1596060192867.png (664.43 KB, 570x742, 145549.png)
Hey anon, here is your spread! It’s a future-specific one, so hopefully it will break down some key areas for you.
Far left – Challenges – 5 of Wands (reversed)
It looks like you’ll be doing a good amount of self reflection to define yourself, which is pretty common at your age. Since this is in the “challenges” position, it suggests you may find it hard to nail down what you want and that you have a tendency to avoid people or things that cause conflict. It’s important not to hide from things that cause discomfort because they’re often the experiences that help us grow the most, so it’s recommended you work on sitting with your feelings to work through them rather than pushing them aside.
2nd from left – Home/Love Life – 4 of Swords
The 4 of Swords is akin to the, “Focus on yourself and the right person will come” motto. It suggests you may have experienced some sort of trauma in your past, or you may just have a tendency to overwork yourself due to juggling a bunch of different responsibilities, and that can get in the way of a happy relationship. Try to work on being comfortable on your own and understanding your limitations. When you know and love yourself, you’ll radiate the energy needed to draw/hold the right person to you.
Upper card on bottom – Physical Health – Ace of Cups
This card reflects an outpouring of love and positivity. Your health will be great, and if you’re at all interested in having kids, it suggests a happy pregnancy down the road. You’re probably a fairly physical person, and it would be beneficial if you either found or maintained activities that allow you to express your inner self through your body—dance, sports, hiking, yoga, sex, whatever calls to you. When your body feels full and satisfied, you likely feel the same, and that energy will bring happiness to loved ones in your life as well.
Lower card on bottom – Mental Health – Knight of Cups
This guy is the epitome of the knight in shining armor with a pure white steed. A true romantic that seeks beauty, truth and artistry. If you stay in touch with your emotions and creativity, people will be drawn to you. You are someone that really has the potential to inspire others and while it can be scary, the more you’re willing to be open with your feelings and opinions, the more benefits you’ll draw into your life. Whatever dream you have, so long as you’re pursuing it, you’ll be on the right path. Your passions are what will keep you flourishing.
Uppermost card – Self – 8 of Swords (reversed)
This seems to tie back into your 5 of Wands. The 8 of Swords is about self-limiting beliefs, restrictive circumstances and a harsh inner critique. The rest of your spread really shows that you need to express yourself to live a happy life, but here it’s saying you have a tendency to be your own worst enemy. You likely have low self esteem, but you can work through this. Work on examining yourself clearly, without bias or hate, and you’ll find more pride in who you are. Don’t let misconceptions restrict your potential.
Left-hand card on right - Finances & Career – Temperance
Very positive card in this position. Temperance is an angel, one who symbolizes finding balance in all things. You have a bunch of emotive cups in your personal life, but of course it’s important to stay grounded, and the good news is that Temperance shows you striking the perfect measure of both. Your career is something that will fulfill you and reflect your values. It will give added meaning to your life and help you find inner calm. You have a clear idea of what you want, and mixing your unique strengths will help set you apart in your field.
Right-hand card on right – Outcome – Page of Pentacles
You will manifest your goals in the future, particularly when it comes to translating things that are currently just ideas in your head into physical and financial abundance. You have the drive and energy to achieve these things, but there is a slight risk that you may get caught up in research rather than actually putting things into action, so just be sure that you’re following through on your plans and making continual progress. Never stop learning and investing in yourself.
anon what a cute deck!! i wish for a read too please
Query: dont feel attached to any job prospect, sometimes i like my degree in cs, other times i wanna do more coding stuff, other i wanna get into reflexology and massage therapy, so my question is, just some advice from the cards please
Damn that's one of the prettiest decks I've seen. Hope you have time to respond kek.
Zodiac sign: Aquarius
Query: How can I stop my unhealthy obsessesion with people and events that are far off in the past and have affected me negatively?
It's my pleasure, anon! Makes me happy to know it might give you some helpful things to think about.
To everyone else who replied, thanks for your interest and I'll get to your readings asap. I'll probably get a couple others done tonight then pop back in tomorrow when I have more time and opportunity to be in a clear state of mind.
File: 1596065003190.png (552.7 KB, 463x738, 145552.png)
That's so kind of you to say, thank you! Glad to join in. >>145552
Top – Overview – The Moon
The Moon is a reflection of your inner self, both your natural intuition and the desires you may have repressed. It’s also a card of illusions. I wonder if there are certain topics you and your husband have spoken about but haven’t dealt with in an entirely honest way. This isn’t necessarily malicious, it’s more akin to someone asking your opinion and responding with, “Yeah, I don’t mind at all” to keep the peace despite the fact your subconscious is struggling. This card suggests you may need to revisit some aspects of your lives you thought were settled, but are actually still undefined. Be honest about the things you want no matter how impractical they seem, and discover your path to those goals day by day.
Upper left – Your role and feelings – 10 of Pentacles
This card shows you achieving wealth and overall financial stability. You will have all the material things you need to be content, and you'll likely end up being the biggest monetary provider between you and your husband. You will offer stability and reassurance to those around you and create a happy home life. You’re someone others feel they can rely on and you enjoy taking care of those around you. Potentially, you could end up feeling like you are the sole “rock” in your family life and that you have to stand alone, but it’s important to seek support for yourself in addition to offering it to others.
Upper right – Partner’s role and feelings – Death (reversed)
Death is actually one of the more positive cards in tarot; it often signifies a “rebirth” as often as an end. With it reversed, this suggests your husband will undergo an important event or transformation that he may resist. To use a cliché, sometimes one door closing means another, better path opens up. He needs to remember that life is what we make it. It will be difficult, but he should work past both the physical and mental blocks he’s built over time. If he takes more of a “radical acceptance” approach, he will become wiser and more attuned to the world than ever before.
Center - Obstacles and blocks – Page of Wands
This page is one full of ideas and excitement, but she sometimes has her head in the clouds and forgets to put anything into action. You can talk about results all day, but you’ll end up stagnating if you don’t take that first step. Those discussions that stem from the Moon may lead to a lot of energy and eagerness for new opportunities, but it’s equally important that you develop an explicit and detailed plan on how to achieve them. Take whatever steps are needed to ensure your momentum is consistent.
Lower left - Best approach for success – The Chariot
This directly addresses the Page of Wands above. The Chariot is about determination, willpower, strength and action. You’ll achieve the things you want with a mixture of drive and old-fashioned hard work. There may be a period in your life where you feel utterly spent, that everything is pulling you in different directions and nothing is turning out how you want. There will be distractions. But you have to remember the reasons you wanted those things and establish strong boundaries. Let your values guide you. In a literal sense, travel and a change of location in your futures may be beneficial.
Lower right - Potential future - 2 of Pentacles
There are several things you’ll need to carefully balance in your lives. You’ve probably lost sight of the big picture in the midst of how busy you can be, but sometimes you’ll get more done by slowing down and taking time to reflect. This reading probably sounds divided: “You need to be active and get things done, but you also need to look inwardly and take it slow!” But it seems like that’s just the path you’ve chosen for yourself. There’s a lot of duality. In the Moon, the domestic dog and the wild wolf. In the Chariot, the sphinxes which face opposite directions. The rewards are worth it though, and you’ll have to choose what to prioritize based on your current circumstances. Take the time to seek help and find ways to lighten your load instead of dealing with it all alone.
Hey anon, can I get a reading too?
I have a crush on a guy, I'm female.
Could you please tell me how this friendship with him may go in the future and if it may become something else? Thanks! I hope I worded this correctly for you
I know you probably have a lot of requests, but could I get a reading too? I’m wondering if I should change my career path, or stay on this one. I’m so conflicted over this and am looking for a sign or an answer anywhere
File: 1596069088596.png (642.69 KB, 497x742, 145570.png)
Bottom - How self talks affects you – 9 of Pentacles (reversed)
I would ask that you take a look at what other people expect from you and how that’s influenced your outlook. What are the general tenets you’ve lived by up until this point, and why have you been following them? Do you feel like you’re “enough” or that you only deserve good things when you’re busting your ass for them? You might feel like you’re doing all the right things on paper but for some reason they’re not actually satisfying you. You likely need to assess all that you’re doing and pull a Marie Kondo: Is this sparking joy? Or am I just hustling because I tell myself that’s what I’m “supposed” to do? You may be doing everything in your power to live up to other people’s expectations and working hard, but you’re not taking enough time to actually enjoy life and lavish love on yourself.
Middle - What are you hiding from yourself out of shame/fear? – The World
The World is typically a very positive card, so pulling it in this position has me wondering if you don’t give yourself enough credit. It’s important to know that you are enough. The things you’ve accomplished matter, and you should be celebrating them. But for some reason, you may feel guilty about doing that. Might it have something to do with the 9 of Pents? That is, the path you’ve taken and what you actually want for yourself aren't quite aligned, so you feel badly about being "selfish" (taking care of your needs)? You’ll only truly feel at peace when your external and inner life are in harmony. Even when you do take part in the things you want, if you feel like you don’t deserve to enjoy them, you won’t. The World also suggests that finding your own “tribe” can go a long way toward feeling more comfortable in enjoying your successes. Don’t associate with those that drag you down.
Left - What is a healing aspect/influence you can access to overcome this? - 9 of Swords
This is, ironically, representative of all the fears, worries, trauma and stresses you’re facing. So the 9 of Swords implies you need to address those things directly. Pick them apart and see them for what they truly are. Often the things we’re most afraid of become distorted and more frightful than they really are when we’ve been struggling with them for a long time. You need to look at what’s causing them, how holding onto those fears may have “served” you in the past and then realize you can go on without them. You don’t have to do it alone; reach out to those you trust, a therapist, engage in activities that are soothing, look at books or materials that can provide support. Use all your resources rather than just hoping they will disperse, because you’re dealing with a lot right now.
Top - What do you need to let go of? – 10 of Pentacles
It seems like you’re concerned with external, material things right now. Money, success in your career, a house, family, “making a mark,” keeping others happy. While having these things to some extent is obviously a necessity to survive, it seems you may be overly focused on “having it all” and attending to everything the world says we need to be successful. Your definition of success, the thing that makes you feel content and happy, may be different. And that’s okay.
Right - What do I need to embrace and nurture? – The High Priestess
Haha, and so here we have the exact opposite of the 10 of Pents, the spiritual queen of the subconscious, the mystical advisor, the sacred feminine. The High Priestess wants you to reconcile your external world and your mind’s eye. She wants you to let go of all those tangible measurements of success and look inwards. What puts you in a spiritual mindset and connects you to your personal truth? What connects you to a larger purpose, in the grand scheme of the wide universe? Focus on those things. She also says it’s okay to connect with your womanly energies: kindness, collaboration, trust, empathy, gentleness, creativity. Let go of some of that fiery, “I can do everything” attitude and just breathe, and be willing to revel in the things that you’ve been told aren’t worthwhile because they don’t directly result in some sort of material, physical/financial gain. You'll feel far better when you do.
I've got you anon!
I'm going to close off requests beyond this one so I can catch up on the others for now. Don't worry, I'll come back and bust out another deck eventually and there are other lovely readers here.
File: 1596073544135.png (674.58 KB, 514x743, 145571.png)
I'm sorry for the position you're in, anon. Even when things aren't going well, break ups hurt. But I'm sure you'll come out stronger and happier in time.
Lower left - What are the energies like in your relationship right now? – Queen of Swords
There’s a big emotional disconnect. Your partner feels cold and isn't receptive to your needs, they may be critical and hold things against you that aren’t all that important. Like they’re just looking for an excuse to argue. There may also be an aspect of superiority—an “I know what’s best, I don’t need your input” sort of thing. You likely feel an aspect of self judgment about how you reached this point, like you should have known better or could have done more to improve the situation.
Middle bottom - Where are things headed if you do nothing? – 7 of Pentacles
Big sunk cost fallacy going on here. You feel like you’ve put so much work and effort into this relationship that it’s a waste to throw it away. You’re emotionally exhausted but feel like you should be able to salvage something after all you’ve done to try and make this work. If you stay, you’re only going to get more frustrated over the fact that you’re putting in all this toil but the results have fallen far short of your expectations. You’ll be disappointed. You can still grow and learn something from the time you’ve spent trying to help your partner; you’ve come to understand yourself better and can look for more in the future.
Lower right - Why did this happen? – Knight of Swords (reversed)
There was a lack of focus in this relationship, like you went into it with high expectations but just weren’t able to make things work because one or both of you didn’t actually know what they wanted. There were likely certain warning signs or circumstantial issues that occurred early on but you figured you could work through them. In truth, it was a bit reckless to just brush past those things without a plan, and your partner wasn’t disciplined enough to follow through on the things they promised. Although they can be immature, it likely wasn’t anyone’s fault that things started going south. They didn’t properly prioritize the relationship and didn’t realize they weren't ready for this.
Middle left - What approach should I take to minimize stress? - Queen of Pentacles
The Queen of Pents has her shit together, to put it simply. It’s time to get your ducks in a row to make this process as stress-free as possible. You need your space and independence and me time. Establish a place of your own, talk to nurturing figures in your life (relatives, friends, teachers, therapist) and create a space both mentally and physically where you can decompress and feel at home. When you talk to your partner, this suggests a nurturing and practical approach would be best. “There have been these good things in our relationship, and I hope we’ve both grown because of that, but it’s not working out because of these reasons. I wish things were different, but we’ll both be okay and do better in the future.” Going into that conversation with the mindset that you’ve already moved on will help you both start healing. You’re more “over it” now than you realize, and the sooner you accept that, the more free you’ll feel.
Middle right - What should I take from this experience? - 8 of Pentacles
This is a card of apprenticeship, learning and refinement. You will be committed to a clarity of purpose in the future. All that chaotic uncertainty brought on by the Knight of Swords will lead you to hone in on what it is that you really want and ensure your future partner understands and respects what you’re seeking. 8 of Pents is patient and humble. You know from your struggles that you’re capable of great amounts of concentration and dedication, and those energies can now be put toward your own improvement and self care. Day by day you’ll feel more fulfilled, especially if you try to explore the things that really bring you peace of mind.
Top - Where do I go from here? - Ace of Cups
A beautiful card to draw in this position. It represents overflowing (positive) emotions and self awareness, compassion towards others and growth through creativity. Once you’ve rid yourself of these dead leaves, you’ll be in an incredible position to bloom. There will be emotional pain, but that will transform into loving acceptance toward yourself and even your former partner. You’ll understand we are all human, we are all capable of great love and harm. And you’ll choose to be better. Be willing to embrace new opportunities. Don’t let the past make you fearful and close yourself off to all the world has to offer, because things will only get better from here.
Thank you for your reading anon
Last night before I fell asleep, I had a strong feeling you were going to pull reverse death in regards to my husband
He is currently undergoing cancer treatment and we are reaching the final stages
Next week he has a scan which determines if the tumor is completely gone or if additional treatment is needed
His previous scans showed his tumor shrinking from chemo and he has admitted to me that he is anxious about possibly not having to do chemo anymore because he got so used to the routine
Maybe this is the big event you were speaking about that will 'transform' him?
I must admit you were also right about me being a rock these past few months and doing everything in my power to care for him as we had to move to an entirely new country for his treatment
I dont speak the language but I am doing my best to get by and get things done for us
The cards also showing me having so many ambitions and dreams but no action yet needing to slow down also makes sense
I'm just so excited for us to really start our lives together after this treatment is done but I also have to acknowledge the fact we need a break when this is over because the emotional onslaught we received over the course of treatment has been unbearable at times
I'm a highly competitive person so I get the feeling I have to play catch up with everyone else my age but I have to also admit that my situation is unique and difficult
Can reverse death also mean that his health will turn for the better? Just curious as to how it works

Wow anon, you are an amazing person. I’m sorry for all the stress you’ve dealt/are dealing with, but I kept getting the sense that you were incredibly strong as I was pulling your cards. I’ve been reading for a while but it still shocks me a bit how relevant tarot can be sometimes.
Going through chemo is absolutely a giant, transformative event and reversed Death could pertain to your husband starting a new chapter of his life without the shadow of cancer over it. It caught my attention when you said he’s worried how he’ll feel without it… going through something like that changes a person, and he shouldn’t force himself to be the same/do the exact same things as before. How that plays out exactly I don’t know, but reversed Death does imply some resistance to letting go of the past, so it’s important he be open to a new way of things.
I drew an additional card for clarification asking, “What will he need to release?” and got the Knight of Wands. This knight is a go-getter, a man of action who makes things happen and doesn’t waste time. But he can also be impulsive and impatient. I would guess that he may need to slow down, to not beat himself up over the fact he’s not going to be 100% immediately after the treatments stop. It’s okay if he feels different, and he needs to allow himself additional time to recover mentally in addition to what his body has been through.
I guess that Chariot played into a move that already happened! You have all the willpower and strength needed to follow through on your ambitions, and it’s important you make time for yourself after all the support you’ve given your husband. But you’re right that you don’t always have to be moving to make progress. We’re all on our own journeys, and just because someone else may seem “ahead,” their life has no bearing on yours and they’re dealing with their own struggles you may not see. So long as you’re heading towards the place you want to be, you’re doing it right, but don’t forget to try and enjoy the present as well.
Reversed Death could imply an improvement in your husband's health, and it definitely seems like the most pertinent reading in your situation. I’m of the same mind as >>145146
where I don’t believe that tarot connects us to some spiritual entity that knows the future, but I do believe it connects us to a higher sense of self which allows us to intuit things that may seem magical or very forward-thinking in the moment. I think the most important thing to get out of a reading is a better understanding of yourself, how you see your circumstances and what would best support you moving forward.
It’s my pleasure! Knowing the reading may help you is plenty of repayment. Best of luck to you in overcoming this. >>145702
That’s great to hear, anon. I hope the process goes as smoothly for you as possible. Wishing you all the best going forward.
It's okay to reword your question if you meant something else entirely but asking the same query again and again is not good for you as you might get extremely different replies and confuse you even more
That said, the star, four of cups, page of pentacles
Yes, but you need to be more realistic and stop romanticizing the past too much, you're very scatterbrained and think of the future too much without working on the present>>145892
Nine of cups, hanged man, nine of swords
Feel proud of yourself and what you do, see the world in a more positive way, and work on your anxiety.>>145884
Knight of wands, lovers, four of wands
Try to rely on others a bit more, ask people for help, and tackle problems right-on. People who love you are the key in this.>>145793
The tower, ten of swords, empress.
Whatever you are going through, it is very heavy shit. I would recommend to relax and work on your inner self.>>145756
Queen of cups, eight of wands, temperance
You will need his help mostly. This reading didn't give me a yes or no, only that first things will go very fast and then very slow. Try to search the queen of cups meaning, maybe that will help you out.

I could help too :)
got these cards
Do you wanna trade a reading?

For anons who want to learn tarot on their own and do their own readings, I adore the Golden Thread app ( https://goldenthreadtarot.com/
). Makes it super easy and fun to do quick readings and get a feel for the cards. The creator also made an app for specifically learning the cards called, Labyrinthos Academy app. It has more deck options as well as lenormand reading (like tarot but with more symbol/archetype cards? I’m not well-versed in this practice). Best part is both apps are completely free with no ads. I ended up buying the physical golden thread deck to support her.
I am also looking for a reading trade, if anyone’s interested.
Query: What should I presently be focusing on to improve my career/find my ideal career?
File: 1596393288357.png (1.65 MB, 1112x726, 145578.png)
Thank you for your patience anons! I apologize for the delay, the last few days were a bit more chaotic than anticipated.>>145578
Left - How does he feel/see you? - The Empress
He sees you as an attractive, feminine woman who has a nurturing nature and seeks to take care of her friends. You come across as poised, in control and graceful to him. He may be attracted to a sensuality in you while simultaneously seeing you as something of a mother figure. Not necessarily that he equates you to his mother, just that your giving/caring side often makes you the person people turn to when they want advice, support, etc.
2nd from left - What are his thoughts regarding romance with the querent? - 4 of Swords
It may not be the right time for him. This suggests that there’s something holding him back from a relationship: either he has a very busy schedule and is tied up with work, there may be troubles in his family life, or he may have gone through a difficult/draining relationship in the past that he’s still healing from. It seems he definitely sees you in a positive light, but because of these other stresses he’s dealing with, the thought of romance may not yet be on his mind.
3rd from left - What would the querent gain by sharing her feelings? - 7 of Cups
This is an interesting one. 7 of Cups represents new opportunities and could imply the beginning of something fresh and fun, but it also represents illusions and self deceit. Is there a reason pursuing a relationship with this man may be unrealistic right now? Perhaps because of the stresses in his life (4 of Swords), his role or your own feelings? How well do you really know him? It’s entirely possible you’re idealizing him and glossing over the fact that he may not be a great match for you. You may even be using him as a sort of scapegoat for your own troubles, daydreaming about a relationship for the sake of avoiding an issue you need to face directly.
Right – Where would the querent be if she kept her feelings to herself? - King of Cups
This king is a master of his own emotions and understands both conscious and unconscious desires. He is mature, calm and balanced. Especially taken in perspective with the rest of the cards, this would imply a rational reason for not telling your crush how you feel, one that stems from greater understanding of yourself. Perhaps you’d realize that you don’t actually want him, but what he represents. That he may not be in the right place at this time. That you need to focus on other areas of your life. Whatever it is, you would come to feel content with those reasons and wouldn’t feel cheated of a relationship.
Overall anon, I’m not saying don’t go for it, but I would look closely at your reasons for wanting this man and try to determine if they’re actually healthy, realistic and beneficial at this time, or whether you may not be seeing the situation for what it is.
File: 1596396497959.png (1.28 MB, 1077x718, 145579.png)
Left - What can the querent do to best determine which career path she should follow? – 3 of Cups
The 3 of Cups suggests you turn to your closest friends, mentors and peers to share ideas, concerns and goals. They may be able to provide valuable advice that makes your path clearer, especially if they’ve been in the same position before. This is also a card of creative collaboration. If there are people in any of these fields that inspire you or peers you enjoy working with, you may want to propose a personal project and see if that experience makes you feel fulfilled or guides you toward a more specific focus. There may be pre-existing opportunities for this as well: clubs, group competitions, casual meet-ups and so on that could provide an avenue for this.
2nd from left - Is there anything the querent can do on her own to determine a career path? – 4 of Swords
This is basically saying you should take action by doing fewer actions. You need a break, to step away from your usual schedule to relax and re-center yourself. If you can take a vacation or even a weekend away at some point, that could be very beneficial in allowing you to have an honest conversation with yourself. You’re feeling very overwhelmed and need to get away from all the stress and overstimulation you’re dealing with currently. Allow yourself to let go for a moment and just focus on the things that make you happy, with no attachments.
3rd from left - What sort of path/activities will give the querent the most joy in a career? – 3 of Wands
You’re the type of person who wants a career that is fulfilling on some deeper level. Not the “I only work to live” type, but ideally, “My job is an extension of me and my contribution to the world.” It’s a tall order, but you should seek something that offers you the chance to grow in your skills, professional outlook and who you are as a person, even though that may not mean you take the easiest path. On a literal level you may want to look at something that requires travel or takes you overseas, or broaden your horizons through additional learning and opportunities that take you outside your comfort zone. Think big and consider any ideas you may have dismissed as too “crazy” in the past. It’s a good time to consider what steps you’d need to take to actually make them a reality.
Right - What is the querent’s greatest strength that she should seek to use in her career? – 9 of Swords
You have great mental strength and fortitude. It’s likely you’ve overcome a lot in life and are able to get to the heart of a matter where others struggle or let their own negative biases cloud their judgment. You are fair, forthright and capable of real self transformation. I think your adaptability and willingness to explore the tough issues where others may fear to tread is a real benefit. You have the ability to be a great leader because of this, either directing a group of people or striking out on your own thanks to your self sufficiency.

Top - Asked your exact query - The Emperor
You are a logical person; rules, systems and deep analysis appeal to you. This is also playing into your tendency to overanalyze the things that have happened. The Emperor believes you can use this to your advantage. You should seek an organized approach to address these negative thoughts and stick to it. Take a look at different avenues for dealing with trauma (perhaps meditation, traditional therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy) and determine which you feel is the most beneficial. Then do the hard work of breaking down these damaging thoughts about yourself to learn where they stem from and why they are untruthful. You will also regain a stronger self of sense by seeking opportunities to provide for others and act in a position of leadership and influence. By seeing how others can benefit from your knowledge and life experience, you will recognize your self worth in turn.
Left - What is the primary area the querent needs to focus on to feel better about herself? – 2 of Swords
It seems like you blame yourself for a lot of the things that happened to you, perhaps consciously, perhaps not. You feel you were indecisive and should’ve known better. However, this is unfair and damaging to your self esteem. We all need to go through certain experiences to learn from them, and you didn’t have the perspective you possess now back when these hurts occurred. You need to absolve yourself of guilt and be kinder to yourself. As the Emperor suggests, focusing on your strengths now and realizing that you have a lot to offer will be important in overcoming the past. Don’t let who you were then stop you from growing as an individual now.
Right - While the querent is working to improve her self image, how can she minimize her suffering? – The Hermit
Haha, I first drew this and thought, “Really, deck? Hermit really wanna show up right now and tell this poor woman to go BACK in her head when she’s already stuck in a negative spiral?” But it makes sense. While these changes to your mindset will not happen overnight, this spread and your own words indicate that you have been caught in a pattern of defining yourself by the people around you or the things that have happened to you. You think about yourself a lot, but you’re focused on everything but your own feelings. It’s time to look inward and get reacquainted with the person there. She’s not weak—she is a safe haven for others. She is powerful. She is a ruler. When you’re quiet, when the intrusive thoughts aren’t hassling you—what knowledge has been patiently waiting for you to accept it? What connects you to a sense of inner truth and spirituality? If you’re unsure, it’s time to explore that, to set aside a place (physical and/or mental) where you can just exist and connect with your personal values once again.
this deck is beautiful anon, can i get a reading desu?
question: how can i maximize my chances of success in my field? am i doomed to stay single and terrible with romance in the future?

Thank you anon

Left - What is the state of the querent’s friendship with her crush/How does he feel about her? – 4 of Cups
He’s in a state of indecision and is mostly focused on himself right now. He isn’t necessarily against the thought of a relationship, but he doesn’t feel he has all the facts right now. Perhaps you two haven’t known each other long, or he’s distracted by other areas of his life. He may also be in a state of self preservation because of getting burned before, so he’s currently unwilling to accept fresh opportunities. He likely needs time.
2nd from left - Why does he feel this way about her? – 3 of Wands
It looks like your crush is focused on new opportunities and looking toward the future. Has he gotten an opportunity to travel somewhere new? Or some exciting prospect to broaden his horizons? It seems his attention is mostly devoted to this chance for personal development and he’s really committed to making his goals a reality. He feels hesitant to make any commitments right now because of that.
Top - What would the querent gain if she tried to take things further? – Queen of Cups
You would grow in your ability to show love, support and compassion. You would be placed in a position of great vulnerability that would result in understanding your emotions better. Aspects of it would feel emotionally overwhelming, both good and bad. However, you'd likely prioritize the other person’s interests above your own. There’s a sense of melancholy, and while you’d be happy providing for your partner, your own needs may often be left unaddressed. In accordance with the prior cards, it seems like this man would not be wholly “there” in a relationship and you’d be the one doing the lion’s share of the emotional labor.
Bottom - Would taking things further be healthy/positive for her? - The Tower
I can’t say that going into this relationship would necessarily be a “fun” experience throughout, but the process would be very meaningful and result in a major change to your perspective. This change may be shocking, confusing and even painful as it’s occurring, but afterwards it would lead to great personal growth and you would become more resilient and self aware. Depending on how in touch you are with your personal values and feelings, this change might be a big revelation you’ve been waiting for, or it could be a period of great struggle that only feels worthwhile once you’ve made it out the other side.
File: 1596406216141.png (1.28 MB, 829x739, 145599.png)
Left - What should the querent seek in a career to be happiest/most fulfilled? – Death
Wow, you don’t ask for much, huh anon? (I kid!) It seems like you really want a career that speaks to you personally and provides an opportunity for huge transformation and growth as an individual. You’re also looking for something that will shake up the status quo and give you a new perspective/lease on life. It would be nice if your job allowed you a measure of self determination and control rather than being at the whim of someone else.
Left top - What is the good the querent will find on her current career path? – Temperance
It seems like your current career would provide you with a lot of stability and balance. You would grow in your ability for perseverance, patience and bringing together a variety of your talents for a specific purpose. This is likely something you’ve been focusing on/committed to for a while, and you would feel at peace if you focused your efforts on it.
Left bottom - What might the querent struggle with on her current career path? - Page of Pentacles
You think it might be difficult to manifest your personal goals and achieve financial stability through this path. The potential is there, but it seems like there’s a lot to surmount and that your ideas might appear too lofty when it comes to actually putting them into action. You can do this. The path isn’t necessarily easy or straightforward, but if you focus on tangible steps you can take, you can bring them to fruition.
Right top - What would be positive about the querent seeking other career options? - 8 of Swords
You might feel trapped in your current circumstances because you’ve already invested a lot of effort into your present career path. Considering other options would help free your mind and overcome limiting beliefs. You would realize you are not a victim
of circumstance and still have the ability to change directions if you so desire. You would also get a new perspective on what you want from life.
Right bottom - What might the querent struggle with if she sought other career options? - 7 of Pentacles
You’re scared of committing a large amount of time/energy into yet another path that may not result in any tangible rewards. You’re tired of this situation, and you feel that throwing more options into the mix is only going to distract your focus and set you back further. You know nothing is guaranteed and if you spend too much time looking at the “wrong” option then you’ll be shooting yourself in the foot.
Right - What should the querent think about the make the healthiest decision? – 3 of Pentacles (reversed)
Taking this in conjunction with the Page, I think you’re feeling a lack of clarity about your current career and would be served well by nailing down a more concrete plan about how you can achieve your goals. You’re also feeling like there’s not much room for personal growth and advancement, which is highly important to you based on Death’s input. It’s likely that may be opportunities related to your line of work that you haven’t considered before or where you’d be better utilized. Trying to find a more positive group of peers/mentors to discuss this could be really helpful, because it seems like you either lack a support network right now or thought you could manage it all on your own. Don’t be afraid to reach out for guidance.
Overall I’m getting that your current path could be a great one for you, but you may need to explore different opportunities within it, and create a plan that will allow you to feel a greater sense of accomplishment and personal worth.

I’d love to do a single trade with someone. My query is: How can I strike the right balance between caring for myself and finding opportunities for growth while also tending to my partner’s needs/struggles? >>146142 >>146145
Hi anons, I closed off requests a while back to finish up those I still had. Aside from the potential trade above I’m going to take a break for a while, probably a week or so? If you want a quicker reading please feel free to ask in this thread generally, otherwise I’d be happy to respond later on.
I was also going to change up my deck, so if you want to wait, please let me know if you’d like to stick with the Bowring Tarot (I don’t mind for these two requests) or would be okay with something else.
File: 1596410939973.jpeg (83.43 KB, 750x837, 1595037583073.jpeg)
Ooh anon, thank you so much for this detailed reading. I keep reading it and try to think about the situation. Yeah. It's a tricky one… whatever I decide with thought will be the right choice. Thank you!
What will my love life look like? Will I meet my soulmate?
Different anon but I also have the same question.
Actually, same question.
Of course anon! I hope it helps, you seem like a genuinely caring person based on your reading so I hope you prioritize your well being. Thank you for that adorable shiba as well, haha. >>146170
No worries at all, I just didn’t want you waiting and thinking I didn’t care/forgot about your question! I agree and think the type of deck affects how the querent personally views the cards. Imagery can help spur certain thoughts and help you consider what a card might represent just as much as the traditional meaning.
I was considering the Children of Litha (https://www.xiahunt.com/pages/the-children-of-litha-tarot
) or Ethereal Visions (https://www.etsy.com/listing/720365407/ethereal-visions-tarot-deck
) decks next, so if either of those speak to you let me know!
Hey Aries :)
I've looked what you love life will be this year. And you are going to have a date with someone you met online. He will be someone with a strong personality and likes to take charge in life and relationships

Doing 10 queries today since there seems to be a lot of anons with unsolved questions here. Just reply to this post with your query, age and sign and I'll respond.

I had a feeling The Hermit would show up, which always reminds me that despite all I've been through, I'm still me. I just have to put in the work to let go of the past. Thank you so much anon, this was very affirming. You're very gifted and appreciated.
I would appreciate a reading!
Is my current partner good for me or should I look for happiness elsewhere?
Should I pursue an art career? Will I have enough character to do such?
anon thank you so much,i wish i could repay you somehow! a lot of what you said are thing that other ppl/tarotist or the like have told me before,its so odd to me that i keep getting the idea of a rest or to take things lightly when i haven't done much, perhaps its the honest conversation part that i haven't done at all.
perhaps being a chiropractor/masseur at day and coder at night isnt a bad idea at all…

Hi, I’m >>146044
(ugh re-reading it makes me sound like a total ad but whatev) and went ahead and did a celtic cross reading for you (you don’t have to reciprocate if you’re too busy!).
> I’d love to do a single trade with someone. My query is: How can I strike the right balance between caring for myself and finding opportunities for growth while also tending to my partner’s needs/struggles?
>Heart of the issue: V of Pentacles, reversed
Looks like you (or your relationship) are coming out of a rough patch and are starting the recovery/healing period. This card also suggests isolation (as a way of self-healing or fostering self-growth)
>Challenge: King of Cups
I see this as either you or your partner are holding you to a very high ideal of how you should be behaving: with utmost compassion with appropriately controlled and balanced emotions. This is not attainable - we are all human and living in a fucking pandemic. We cannot be perfect archetypal saintly beings 24/7.
>Unconscious: VIII of Pentacles, reversed
This card shows a lack of focus or no ambition or motivation. Maybe deep down you want focus on yourself right now rather than having to take care of both yourself and another grown adult. Or you could just be exhausted and need to rest. Either way, your Unconscious doesn't seem to want to focus on relationship issues right now.
>Past: The Sun, reversed
Paired with the heart of the matter/v of Pentacles, this suggests you (or your partner) are coming out of a period of depression, sadness, and general negativity.
>Conscious: King of Swords, reversed
Are you being overly cruel and self-critical to yourself? This with the challenge/king of Cups feels like you are being way too harsh on yourself for not being the perfect supportive partner when again, you are prob being adequately supportive and you/your partner have unrealistic expectations of what an ideal supportive partner should be.
>Future: III of Cups
Thankfully, there is some friendship, community, and general social happiness coming your way. Definitely talk this shit out w your friends and have some fun.
>Querent: Ace of Wands, reversed
Unsurprisingly, you are suffering from a lack of energy and passion, bored and worn down from daily grind. If your attentions are split between your and your partner's well-being, I can see that being both exhausting and nonproductive.
>Environment: IX of Wands
Exhaustion, fatigue, reaching burn out - yeah, it definitely looks like you have been working crazy hard for a while and you really need to rest, pace yoursef, and focus on your health/needs.
>Hopes and fears: VI of Cups
This card makes me a little sad - you are hoping for a return of the happy "good times" of the relationship. Nothing wrong with that, but rose-colored nostalgia goggles can be deceptive and distract you from the current reality.
>Outcome: VI of Pentacles, reversed
This is just a likely outcome with all the current forces in play (if you keep doing what you're doing without change). Basically, it may lead to selfishness, debt, stinginess, or giving for the wrong reasons. I see the last option as most fitting: are you giving attention and care for the right reasons (e.g. you partner genuinely needs your care/attention right now) or are you being guilted/being disparaged into taking time away from your own wellbeing to focus on your partner?
Takeaway: Please stop putting on yourself these high expectations of needing to care for your partner. You need to take care of yourself first, and the rest will follow.
This is my first time doing a reading for a stranger, so apologies if my reading is just wrong or overly judgmental. Wishing you all the best!
(Sorry, fucked up text last time)
Damn anon, it shouldn't come as a surprise but this is spot-on. Thank you so much.
I'm the King of Cups here, I'm an idealistic romantic who wants this relationship to be perfect and it stresses me so much when it isn't. I know we all have shortcomings but I take my partner's mistakes very personally. Things used to be rough between us and it's hard for me to believe it might be okay now. Any wrong step from him and I feel like we're back at square one.
I did just get out of a period of depression due to this and I feel like I can't relax/focus on myself because otherwise my partner won't pull his emotional weight. So I'm the one who needs to do all the research, have the tough conversations, check in with him, etc. I need to drop these burdens and give him a chance (because he has been stepping up) so I can focus on taking care of myself without resenting the situation.
I have been having trouble adjusting my mindset to figure out what it is I even want right now. I have 1 or 2 outlets that let me breathe occasionally. I do have an idea of what the 3 of Cups could represent though, and I'm really hoping it's the collaboration I have in mind, so I'll take a chance and reach out.
I'd be happy to do a reading for your query. Might take me a couple days but stay tuned. Thank you once again. (And I thought your initial post was sweet and helpful!)
It's all good, glad to do a reading for you eventually and I'll use the Bowring cuties!>>146261
Thank you for the kind words anon, I'm so glad to hear it was helpful. Anyone actively seeking to overcome a difficult/traumatic past has my admiration, and it seems like you have some powerful attributes working in your favor. I love a woman with that self sufficient, intellectual energy. I know you'll get where you want to be. <3>>146273
Always interesting to hear when multiple readings align. I don't know if it may help you, but for me, sometimes it's tough to make breaks/vacations actually feel rejuvenating. Like I'll do all the things a break is "supposed" to include: laze around, play games, do some light reading, explore a new place… but I don't end up feeling any better afterwards.
I think like you said, it can be helpful to be a bit more conscientious about what truly "refreshes" you. If nothing feels that way currently, then give something new a shot. Sign up for a class, go on a retreat, prep for a backpacking trip, something that's going to shake you out of your routine. I know that can be difficult in the COVID times, but it's easy to stagnate and miss the fact that certain "relaxing" activities may actually feel as uninspired as your regular grind. And yes, if both of those callings are worthwhile to you, maybe your future should include both!>>146302
Unfortunately I don't have any specific resources to share, but I would recommend looking at other people's readings/interpretations to see how they contextualize various cards. I think spreads actually become easier to comprehend versus single card draws because each new piece adds clarity. If someone said, "She wore black because it matched the mood," you might think a story was going in a negative direction, but draw another card and it may become, "She wore black because it matched the mood, but her mind was full of dreams."
Consider individual card placement. Typically in a spread each position represents a specific category or portion of the query, so you become like a detective fitting puzzle pieces together and seeing how each plays off the other.
Thank you for clarifying the reading! Yeah, when I was interpreting it, I was just feeling/getting so much pressure to be perfect and the fatigue from keeping up, but I wasn't sure if I was projecting. Good to know that the pressure is self-inflicted and hopefully will be alleviated, and not from an abusive
partner. No worries on my question, if you get to it, you get to it - I appreciate you either way.
Yikes on the file size I uploaded too, sorry anons

because of this thread I went from having no interest in tarot and thinking it was nonsense to buying a deck and doing daily readings. i feel like I've already developed a weird bond to my cards which is fun even if it means I take the readings too personally

>>146315>>146145> Query: will i ever make something of my life and make the people around me proud…
okay I got you. I forgot that the labyrinthos app lets you share your digital spread - this is the reading I did for you:https://app.labyrinthos.co/reading/celtic/LST/-11,75,35,52,47,53,56,-4,54,-14
My interpretation> Heart of the Matter - Justice Reversed
It looks likes the issue is you’re stuck in a situation that is unfair and unjust, which is holding you back. Alternatively, you believe you must act in an immoral way to get out of the situation you’re in (this is what I’m leaning toward looking at the other cards).
> Challenge - Knight of Pentacles
To overcome the issue (whether it is a shitty system or not), you need to work hard and be responsible - like having an efficient daily grind to your goal. Acting out in an extreme or chaotic way won’t help.
> Unconscious - King of Wands
Your unconscious seems to have a good idea and sense of what you want to achieve and how to achieve it, so I feel like you already know in your hearts of hearts that acting unjustly isn’t the way to do it.
> Past - III of Swords
You’ve been through a lot so I get why you’re not really willing to put your nose down and do the work - maybe others achieved by fucking you over, I don’t know, but you should take your past as lessons learned and wisdom gained. Don’t fall to their level.
> Conscious - Knight of Cups
Your view is idealistic and romanticized, which suggests to me that you’re not clearly thinking about the reality of the situation - maybe that’s why you’re leaning towards acting immoral vs hard (maybe tedious) work
> Future - IV of Swords
You are going to be able to have time to rest and contemplate, so I wouldn’t rush into any bad decisions yet. Take this time to really work things through and take care of yourself. It’s not a sprint race, it’s a long ass marathon that lasts your entire life - take your time.
> Querent - VII of Swords
You’re coming in this with a mindset of deception and trickery. Maybe your shitty past has made you untrusting and constantly trying to find the quickest and easiest way out, damn the consequences, but this kind of thinking isn’t going to work if you want to reach your goals
> Environment - The Emperor Reversed
Your environment isn’t great either - sorry you’re dealing with strict nonsensical rules. I can see why you would think acting immorally would be a better way than hard work, when others around don’t seem to follow the rules or use rules that don’t make sense/take advantage.
> Hopes and Fears - V of Swords
It looks like you want this at all costs - don’t let it cost your soul, anon. Especially since the next card suggests that if you do…
> Outcome - Temperance Reversed
If you keep with this mindset, it’s just going to lead to a more extreme shitty version of the current situation.
Hope this helps and sorry if it’s off!

>>146154> Where can I find happiness?https://app.labyrinthos.co/reading/celtic/SST/36,43,44,20,53,3,41,45,10,33
My interpretation> Heart of the Matter - Ace of Cups
You can find happiness in new friends and relationships (a new social circle?).
> Challenge - VIII of Cups
This cards means unconditional love and unity with others so I feel like you need to work on opening up your heart again and learning to trust others - developing that feeling of trust and allowing vulnerability is what you need to work on. Alternatively, you may be too trusting and need to work on reading others better.
> Unconscious - IX of Cups
This suggests you may still be grieving over past ended relationships (platonic or otherwise), which is why you are having difficulty trusting again. Regardless, you’re lonely.
> Past - Judgement
An awakening or sudden clarity of types happened in your past - with the other cards, I’m guessing someone(s) you trusted broke that trust and you found out or some other revelation that made you re-evaluate your past relationships/how you interact with others.
> Conscious - IV of Swords
You’re being very conscientious and careful now with trusting others/forming new relations, which makes sense considering the other cards, but this may hinder you so be aware
> Future - The Empress
Looks like you’re going to have a wonderful flow of creative energy coming your way which would be a great time to relax and enjoy yourself and the company of others
> Querent - VI of Cups
It seems like you are coming at the situation as an extrovert, which is great - you already know the value of good friendships and that happiness can be found there
> Environment - X of Cups
This suggests to me that while you may have been grieving those past ended relationships, you’re coming to terms with it now and are ready to move forward and meet new people.
> Hopes and Fears - The Wheel of Fortune
This plus the above definitely signals to me that you are ready to move on. The past is the past and now it’s time to move forward to a new cycle of friendship, happiness, and love. There is a fear that this cycle will end in the same way as your past cycle so think about what ended those past relationships and don’t make the same mistakes - you can break into new ground.
> Outcome - Knight of Wands
This made me smile: looks like you’re going to become more adventurous and outgoing with your new friends (or maybe in pursuit of your new friends?). Either way, it looks like a lot of fun - just be mindful of those past mistakes and don’t be reckless.

I feel a bit silly typing out my interpretation since it is literally just based on the info in the spread link, so lemme know if it’s dumb.
It's not dumb at all! I loved it <3
Thank you very much for taking the time to write this out for me. I have no friends in my new town so I'll definitely change that

If anyone else wants to hop in please reply to this post, I have some spots left>>146246
I'll get back to y'all soon
I'll respond to queries not directly adressed at me with a simple reading, I hope that's okay (I just don't like leaving people hanging)>>146164
Queen of wands, four of wands, four of swords
First you gotta adress your anxiety issues and try to work on being more level headed. Then you'll have to directly take action, be confident and pacefully dominate the situation. I see you getting away from your family pretty soon.>>146176
The world, queen of wands, four of cups
Love is something always in your mind, and this read indicates me that you'll indeed have a good and fulfilling love life, you just need to work on yourself, get some inner peace and manifestate.>>146169
Nine of swords, six of wands, eight of cups.
You care way too much about what people say about you, and this gives you clear anxiety. Until you work on this, your relationships will fail.>>146196
Knight of wands, empress, nine of pentacles
You're a bit pushy or overly excited about love, but I'm guessing this comes with how young you actually are. This reading is indicating me yes you will find someone who will be the love of your life, this will come once you've grown into a woman in tune with your emotions and able to fend for yourself.>>145947
Five of pentacles, ten of pentacles, queen of cups
"Making people proud" shouldn't be your first priority, quite the contrary. You must make YOURSELF feel proud first, become smart and know what you truly want. Your success comes from this.>>146323
Eight of wands, eight of pentacles, queen of cups
Whatever you have in mind, the cards are saying yes, you need to start working now, immediately
on this. This will make you very happy.>>145919
The hanged man, eight of wands, ten of cups
You need to stop over analyzing everything and obsessing over minor details. Take it easy, chill, and take action quick, don't overthink and miss your chance. That way you'll find happiness.
Is your current partner good?
Three of wands, judgement, eight of swords.
No, he isn't, he's out of sync with you and seems like is not being completely honest. Seems like an scumbag to me. If you break up with him, it will have a taste of "serves him right". The three of wands heavily implies it's time to let him go and a new relationship will come to you.
The magician, the tower, queen of swords
He thinks he's a smart guy who can fool you, but there's some bullshit brewing in the cauldron already. It's better to leave him. You feel kinda defensive around him, like you need to be on your tip toes.He might even be a bit malicious. Be more clever than him, a fierce individual woman: the queen of swords.
The sun, the world, the devil
Once you leave this dirtbag, your whole world will light up, things will feel better, happier, optimistic for you. You feel very bound to this person, like in a cage. Get away from this asshole lol
Five of cups, nine of swords, lovers
Thing is, you keep going and going on with your doubts, your sadness, and your grief about this. You are so anxious about not being able to be or do enough. This is wearing you out so much, all these rumminating thoughts are doing you no good.
Thing is, art WILL make you super happy, super fulfilled, it feels like destiny to you. It feels good. But your thoughts are holding you back super hard.
Three of swords, six of swords, nine of swords again
I encourage you to reflect if this worry is justified. It's like you're really depressed and heartbroken, this is just sad to see. You're so adamant about not listening to your heart that in the end, since you're scared nervious and anxious, you walk away from something that otherwise would be good for you.
Seven of pentacles, the fool, five of wands
Some of this thoughts comes from some opposing external forces though. I'm curious, is it your parents? What people say? Siblings? Lolcow? Who is it? In this case, the cards are telling you to play fool. Ignore them. Follow the bliss that art gives you. Work on your art more. This is what will give you what you want. The end lol

Awesome anon! I think it really makes sense, thank you!
File: 1596564660888.png (173.62 KB, 347x348, akko.png)
This killed me anon. I love Thurston and it’s great to hear you’ve gotten into tarot. Glad you’re having fun with it!
I feel a strong connection to my first/favorite deck as well, and there are definitely times when I feel like “it” is being a sarcastic asshole towards me, but sometimes I need to hear it lol.
I once asked it what my significator was (a personal, representative card) and didn’t agree with the answer on first draw, so I drew twice more and got the same thing both times. It was pretty surreal/freaky because I was using a full deck, not just the majors, and I fully shuffled between each draw. At that point I was like, “Okay okay, I believe you!”
On the plus side I have since developed quite a fondness for that card, and the way it’s represented in that deck definitely adds personal significance to me. I’m one of the “I don’t think tarot is woo-woo magic” types but it’s still kind of crazy I draw it regularly when doing readings for myself.

File: 1596666727992.jpeg (39.59 KB, 900x354, 9DC95FAE-DD4C-4C96-A691-C5DA8A…)
Thanks for being so kind, anon! Your reading really had me feeling that a lot of fun is coming your way so I’m excited for you to find new wonderful friends.>>146368
Asked my cards for my significator due to your post and got a card that really resonated with me. I haven’t tried my luck in trying to pull it again though.
I’m also the same way with not being a “true” believer in the crazy woo woo shit - I think of tarot as a conversation with myself or a way to better analyze/trigger
my unconscious intuition, if that makes sense. I still read for others and also read up on astrology/occult for fun and with a sort of what if feeling, so maybe I'm just trying to deny my inner crazy hag.>>146319
Kek reminds me of the pic attached
File: 1596667961401.jpg (228.51 KB, 1135x1300, c30bb9c622c5fedba.jpg)
That's exactly how I feel! I think reading tarot helps people get in touch with their higher intuition and subconscious thoughts. Which, while not supernatural, can seem very insightful and "magical."
That's really cool to hear you got a significator that resonates. I had my boyfriend do a draw for himself for the first time and right away he pulled the exact card he's always been drawn to. I can't make this shit up.
I actually never try to "test" the cards these days like I did back when I was being a stubborn git. Part of me feels like it's disrespectful not to trust what my deck says the first time, and another part of me is afraid I'm going to jinx them somehow, like they'll lose their special abilities. Which I realize sounds insane in the context of my original, logical explanation. But as in the case of my repeated significator and my boyfriend's draw, some things I just can't explain and feel special. So I allow myself some crazy hag thoughts!

Thanks for your patience anon.
What can you do to improve your satisfaction on your current career path? – 10 of Wands
Put in extra work and take on additional responsibilities as they arise. If you do this your career will demand most of your resources for a time, but you’re not too far from a payoff that would make the extra effort worthwhile. You’ve likely been building to this moment and if you continue the course, you will soon see results.
What positives will you derive on your current path? – Queen of Swords
You will derive a lot of intellectual stimulation from this career and should be able to achieve a position of relative autonomy and power. You call the shots and will enjoy a good amount of self determination and strength. There won’t be much bureaucracy preventing you from being an efficient and fair provider.
What motivates you to perform your best in a career? – Death
You like being a transformative force and affecting big change in the world. It’s important to you that others see you as someone they can trust completely without pretense. You also think it would be nice to have a legacy of sorts, not necessarily something tied to your name and ego, but just to have left a mark on the world that affects people’s lives for the better and maybe makes them see things differently.
What should you explore to investigate additional career options? – 10 of Cups
At home, spending more time with family and loved ones may open up new insights and allow you to consider the things that matter most to you. In a broader sense, it may benefit you to look at things related to your larger community such as social work or anything that helps strengthen relationships/families/societies. It seems like there’s a good amount of more detached thinking and logic required in your current career, so you would likely benefit from getting back in touch with what your heart feels as well.
What would motivate a career change? – Four of Swords
It seems that doing what the 10 of Cups suggests by spending time with loved ones, resting and getting in touch with your emotional values may indeed spark a new outlook on your career path. It may not be that you need to change what you’re doing entirely, but you could reevaluate what resonates with you most so you can prioritize the activities that motivate you (Death’s transformative ability). This contradicts the 10 of Wands, so I would be sure to try and set aside some quiet time for yourself before getting wrapped up in the whole “nose to the grindstone” approach.
What might be the benefits of changing your career path? – The Sun
Very positive outcome. You would greatly benefit from changing things up. This would result in more success, joy and abundance in your life. You’d feel enthusiastic and aligned with your inner values, and this would lead to success not only for yourself but those you interact with. You would be a guiding light for others and also feel more relaxed and at ease with yourself.
What will be the outcome if you continue following your current path? – 7 of Pentacles
Certainly, your current career will provide a long-term payoff and lead to financial rewards. You’ve worked hard to reach your position and the fruits of your labor will soon arrive. But between this and the 10 of Wands, I wonder if this path is really draining and exhausting you. Are the rewards worth it? If the Sun is any indicator, I think there’s something more emotional and personal that you may currently be neglecting, but it’s important that you take another look at where you’re headed so both your work and personal life are in alignment. It seems like you could be much happier if you honestly reassessed where you want to be.
This is so telling and informative, thank you so much, anon! I think I can explain the 10 of wands and 4 of swords discrepancy: I’m not working right now as I’m waiting to get certified (passed the test, just need paperwork to clear). I was volunteering prior to corona, but stopped when shit went down. So definitely can put more work into researching jobs and applying, but I also have time to rework my criteria for the kind of jobs I’m looking for. I definitely feel the death card, especially - I just want to do good work and help people, which I can do in my current path but I just don’t feel like it’s enough and/or aligned with my heart. This has give me a lot of food for thought.
Thank you again, anon! And I adore the art nouveau/mucha deck you used as well.
thank you so much. im >>145919
made me cry. it's true. thank you.
i don't trust myself to even do my own
tarot readings because i catastrophize them and panic. anyway, god bless you. really.

If you need anything else please tell me okay?

Hi anon, thank you for waiting. You didn’t mention if you had a preference between the other decks so I went with the Children of Litha because I adore the imagery and style but haven’t had much opportunity to work with it yet. It’s based around “humans, beasts and the divine.”
Left side is for your query regarding career.
Top – What is your current outlook towards your career? – The Fool
You’re right at the beginning of your career path and draw from a deep well of hope and optimism towards the future. You’re enthusiastic and hold a lot of potential. You are willing to try new things and are open to opportunities for learning from all sources. This is a great mindset to have, although you may sometimes lack a concrete plan and struggle with treating your passions as a business. Further experience and proper delegation of tasks can help with this.
Right – Where should you focus your energies to succeed in your work? – 3 of Cups
Friendship, collaboration and community. If you’re in a more solitary field it would be beneficial to look for groups centered around your industry so you can learn from your peers and draw on the communal commitment you all have for your work. Try to push yourself to work on new projects with people you admire and enjoy, celebrate other people’s accomplishments and let them provide you with a larger platform as well. You will feel more encouraged and find it easier to stick to your plans when you have others supporting your progress.
Bottom – Are there untapped resources you could use to find success? – The Emperor
Yes, there is likely someone in a leadership position you could use as a mentor to guide you and provide structure to your path. Their real world experience will help you harness some of that dreamy excitement into actionable steps. There may also be some sort of established organization or governing body that has a lot of resources which will make it easier for you to develop a system that will lead to success. Study those who have already walked the path you’re following now.
Right side is regarding love life.
Top – What are the current energies you’re giving off to potential partners? – Temperance
You have a very pleasant and soothing energy to be around. Even if you don’t feel it personally, you come across as someone who has their life together. You are patient with others, a natural peacemaker, good at communication and are able to hold romance in balance with other important areas of your life. You shouldn’t be in a hurry to find someone, because you value harmony and need to ensure your future partner will seamlessly blend into your world rather than throw things out of balance.
Right – What should you focus on to find your ideal partner? – King of Swords
The peacock king here says you need to look at potential partners from a balanced, intellectual perspective. Let your logic lead the way—if someone seems like they have blatant differences in values, goals and interests which could cause conflict, then leave it at that and realize they’re not the right fit for you. That being said, you have really great intuition so if you ever feel good vibes from a particular person, even if they’re not initially what you would’ve imagined for yourself, it’s worth following up and getting to know them better. Don’t be afraid to be the one to make the first move or take charge. Be upfront about what you’re looking for. I get the feeling you don’t like to play games and your eventual partner will similarly be someone who appreciates honesty, candor and loyalty.
Bottom – What should you look for in an ideal partner? – Strength
Your partner will be someone with incredible determination, fortitude and clarity of mind. They’ll be reliable, compassionate and someone you can truly rely on in times of both happiness and hardship. Keep an eye out for people who emanate a quiet strength. Not the loud ones directing everyone around, showing off their accomplishments with a cutthroat ambition. You want the one who might not say much, but everyone stops and listens when they talk. They’ve likely been through a lot of difficult times, but they are very humble and don’t feel the need to brag about their successes even though a lot of people admire them. This is the type of person with a purity of spirit who kids and animals are drawn to.

I use the Wild Unknown card deck.
Past: Temperance - renewal, healing
Present: Ten of cups - radiating energy
Future: The Sun - vitality, enlightenment
All cards are exceedingly positive and have something to do with healing and good energies anon. It seems you need to accept happiness and positivity on the emotional level. Open yourself up for good changes and go out of your comfort zone when necessary. The cards also make me wonder whether you realize how happy you are on your own? Maybe you don’t need a gf.
