Major Arcana Card Combinations

The Major Arcana tarot cards speak of the life situations we are in, and when they show up in our readings they tell us what situation the rest of the cards in the spread speak of. It can be a good idea to use reversed cards because Major Arcana cards will then be able to tell you if the situation you are in will be positive or negative. A reversed Major Arcana card can also be a sign to turn a situation around. Sometimes a reversed Major Arcana cards can mean you need to take a step back and incorporate the lessons seen in the previous Major Arcana card. For example; Strength reversed can mean you need to incorporate the Chariot into your life. The Chariot stands for healthy competition and being a go-getter.

  1. Hi Inger,
    I made a karma spread about an ex.(this relationship had a bad and ugly end a year ago, and i can’t forget and forgive…) I asked: why did we met? I got the Devil.
    Have we got anything more to do/will we have any kind of future relationship ? I got High Priestess reversed.
    And I asked- What can I do to close this story in me and release the pain and anger- I got the Seven of Pentacles reversed.
    What do you think about it?
    Thanks a lot!


  2. Hi Vica. I believe the cards are telling you to remember who you were before you met this person. Seven of pentacles reversed indicates taking on a challenging lesson to gain invaluable insight and wisdom you can take with you during your life journey. Write down everything you learnt from this relationship. This way you complete the lesson, but you keep the learning, and there is no longer any need for anger to remind you….you anger and pain will then let go of you….
    Sending you lots of LOVE!

  3. I tried a 2 card spread. While shuffling, Wheel of Fortune fell out. Then I pulled The Hanged Man and Princess of Cups.

  4. Hi Ginger, did you ask the cards a specific question? In a general reading this card combination denotes someone with special gifts, especially psychics and artistic gifts. Princess of cups is your audition card, it means putting yourself out there to be noticed for your talents. If there has been a waiting period in your life then Wheel of fortune is telling you that the wait is almost over. 🙂

  5. Inger, Thanks! I am at a major crossroads in life. I have been working on myself since July of last year after nearly a decade of letting myself drown out in my relationship, friendships and work. I am about to go on a trip and I just asked in general what was going to happen since I’ve concentrated so much on bettering myself.

    Most recently, I had been connecting with my spiritual self again. I have been feeling mentally linked with someone that I have never met, even astral projecting and connecting with their mind. My trip next week is to a place I am hoping this person is going to be. *crossing fingers*

  6. Hi inga I’ve just done a three card spread and three of coins came out, then three of wands and King of cups, I feel as I’m being sent something strong here as I repeated it and low and behold the same three cards came out again and in the exact same order

  7. Hi Kerry-Anne. This layout nearly creates an arrow (a perfect alignment in the cards). They say that you are expanding and the only ‘missing link’ is the ‘right’ people, your so called tribe who will be your network and the key to harmony in an enterprise that means a lot to you. You can ask your guides and angels to bring in the right people that share your enthusiasm. They say it has to be people you can see face to face, and meet up with, as opposed to online connections.

  8. Hi Inga. Im very new to this. On a 3 card spread for Past, Present & Future, I drew the Moon, Hierophant in Reverse and the World. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

  9. Hi Eileen. I feel like this card combination is telling you to go out into the world, as you now are a bit too boxed in, and you need more freedom in your life. 🙂
    Cheers, Ingie

  10. Hi

    I have been hurt in the past and now I am finally over it . Problem is I now have strong feelings for someone else who I barely know and I really do not understand how this is even possible. Since nothing has ever happened romantically. I did a 5 card reading about this relationship and got 4 of wands, 6 of Penacles, 2 of swords, the fool and 7 of wands with 3 of wands as clarifier. The cards confuse me I feel they are telling me to move on and I need to make this decision . I have previously pulled the tower in outcome position and pulled the moon and 4 of wands as how I will feel about this change signified by the tower. Is this a good or bad change I do not know .The thing is I can’t seem to forget him :(.

  11. I believe the cards are telling you that you won’t be seeing much of this person in the future…but you did feel a spiritual connection, which was meant to happen to remind you that you can manifest a soulmate in your life….you can begin by focusing on what is important to you in a relationship….what do you want in a soulmate….write a list, and command to meet your highest and best, most compatible soulmate now…

  12. hi I have had a really bad few days really bad, I did a celtic spread 12 cards and was wanted some knowledge its just a general one for work, love and family, I have some problems in work and family, but as some of the cards revel I am standing my ground which I am proud of I think there will be a house move but I would like to know when, ten of cups was the outcome card so as trouble times pass I will be in a happier place the six of swords with seven of wands show a management job, or more responsibility I am looking for work but not having much luck. I am learning tarot but it takes time. I have a sick family member who is going to pass in the next few days my cards are
    ace of pentacles-six of swords-seven of wands- four of cups -wheel of fourtune -queen of swords -four of wands -king of wands two of swords -ten of cups-the magician-the high preistess
    there has been much uphevel and I am standing my ground on a lot of things, I let the gossips gossip which I know is also going on around me, I feel very isolated and alone, but I am sometimes happier that way. Can you please give me your professional opinion on these cards, thanks so much

  13. Hi, Jodie. I believe the tarot cards are telling you about love. The Magician and the High Priestess are the love cards, especially when it comes to soulmate connections. The cards are also saying you will have a new beginning financially, and you have the wheel of fortune card operating for you now, which means you will end up working somewhere pre-destined. Keep avoiding the gossipers, they are low vibrational people, and not part of your soul family. By keeping your boundaries strong around them, you are also making room for your soul family (soul family is often different from earth family), and you will never feel alone around them. Keep going, Jodie, your interpretations of the cards are great.

  14. Hi, Strength means you want and need someone and/or something in your life that is your rock. Magician in challenges position can mean that you have been let down by someone, and feel now that no one is listening or taking you seriously. Wheel of fortune means you will propel forward in life regardless of past hurt, and you will move rapidly towards your Destiny. You are learning to become a leader, and an authority.

  15. Hello inga
    I opened celtic cross for my bf but i had some cards that scared me. Tower in the present, page of wands crossing him, chariot in the above him position, two of wands near future and 9 swords inthe outcome. My experience is limited but the combination tower+ chariot + 9 swords implies a car accident in 48h?

  16. Hi, Mika. I think the cards are telling your friend to have confident in his future. He might have a lot of doubts if he is making the right choices, and he is unsure if the path he is on is the best for him. 2 of wands in future position tells me this is only a temporary state of mind, and he will soon be very confident about where he is heading and what he wants….:) Nine of swords can mean he is a bit ‘stuck in his head’ and over thinks…he might also not get enough sleep….

  17. Hi Inger,

    This morning from a three card spread I received the devil card upright, the fool upright and the empress card reversed. I would be very grateful of any interpretation you can give me to this.

  18. Hi, Sophia. The interpretations depend a bit on if you were using the whole deck, or if you were only using the Major Arcana cards. If you were using the whole deck, then it can mean there are a lot going on behind the scenes that you are not aware of or able to influence too much at this stage. But at the same time, now is a good time to ask your spiritual team (your guides and angels) to bring you what you want into your life. Sometimes with reversed cards, it can be a good idea to look at the card before in the tarot deck, and with the Empress, that card is the High Priestess. The High Priestess is a master at Manifesting seemingly the impossible. I believe the cards are telling you to raise the bar, and believe in achieving what you might believe is impossible, because it is achievable if you put your mind to it….:)
    Cheers, Ingie

  19. I did a 3 card spread and I got for past the temperance present judgement and future the Knight of wands , what does this meam

  20. Hi my cards were 4 of coins 7 of cups 8 of swords 7 of coins 10 of cups the temperence then high priestess followed by the fool and last but definitely not least..the tower! 🙁 this spread was for career/job The cards were all upright. my work makes me very unhappy so I am looking for a change bit the spread has made me a little worried. Thanks

  21. This is actually a very positive reading because you are getting triple 7 with two zeros, so that tells me you will find your soulmate job…meaning you will be in a soul relationship with your next job. I believe the job you are currently in is teaching you about what you don’t want. Now, it is easier to know what you do want. The 0s are god energy, so your prayers now are very powerful. Ask to be crossed path with your highest and best, most compatible, divine job that will bring you happiness and joy 🙂

  22. I did a three card spread for my current new job/work environment.

    I’ve gotten the devil for the past, the emperor for the present and wheel of fortune for the future. All the major arcana. I’m at a lost at how to read this.

  23. Major Arcana cards indicate time will fly by, and they can also mean you will be in the right place at the right time. I feel like you will receive a new work offer in the future (wheel of fortune), could very well be a promotion. 🙂

  24. Thanks. Am surprised out of that many cards, all I drew were the major.

    I am already at my new job for 3 weeks. The draw is meant to advise me on the job/job environment. I guess after all, it’s still a good draw. ?

  25. Hello Inger,i had an online tarot reading about winning the lottery and i pulled a Seven of coins in the situation column,Ace of cups in the opportunities/challengies/,Six of cups in advice,King of wands in daily lesson and near future the fool i have tried to find the meanings can u please help me out

  26. Hello Inger,i tried another online reading on what my talents are and i pulled a situation card of nine of cups,opportunities n challenges i got a Five of swords,Eight of pentacles in advice,Judgement in daily lesson and The World in the near future please help me understand both readings thnk u very much

  27. I feel like the cards are telling you that you have an opportunity to fine tune and practice your talents on a daily basis. With cards like these, you are already aware of what your talents are, and you will be able to take it to the next level.

  28. Hi I pulled 3 cards online
    The hanged man, strength & heirophant. My question was do I take the job offered in Qld. Would you decipher thus fir me. Thank you Sue

  29. Hi, Sue. I would use cards you have shuffled and laid out yourself for an important question like this. I would also use the ‘Make the right decision tarot spread’: You will have to repeat this spread for each choice and options you are looking into. Notice the positives and negatives and how the different choices are affecting your family, love, career and spiritual life.

    Card 1: Lessons I will learn from making this choice

    Card 2: Positives about this choice

    Card 3: Negatives about this choice

    Card 4: How this choice will affect me most

    Card 5: Future location (where you will end up geographically) if making this choice

    Card 6: Friends and potential love connections if I make this choice

    Card 7: Spiritual growth if I make this choice

    Card 8: Career goals achieved if I make this choice

    Card 9: Family influences if I make this choice

    Card 10+11+12: Final outcome if I make this choice

    Compare the different choices before making them. Which one has the best result for you?

  30. Thank you. What is the Make the right decision spread. I did my own and pulled
    10 swords, king of Pentacles & the world.

  31. Hi Inger
    I recently pulled the Hermit , Justice and Death cards in this order side by side .
    Please help me better understand this reading .

  32. Comment…I get the 5 cards of mine in tarot… The tower,the temperance,the lovers,the fool and the hanged man… What does it mean? Plsss….

  33. Hi, Christine. The Hermit is shedding light onto a situation in your life where you need extreme balance and also clear thinking. I feel like you will create more stability in your life, and they say also, you will be helping other people as well. I feel like this has to do with your Life purpose, and there will be a great transformation occurring soon, that you are ready for, and you are well-prepared for. You are in preparation mode now.

  34. Hi, Che….these cards are very strong. I feel like you will have a very intense period where your life will change, or more so, the way you look at life will change. It could be a new relationship that manifests seemingly out of nowhere, that ends up changing you (lovers next to the fool next to the hanged man)….:) The tower suggests you will feel all shaken up for a while, and the temperance often means there is a new element being added to the mix that makes everything more exciting 🙂

  35. Hello Inger. I am just starting out with tarot and am trying to begin with general 3 card spread. I do have a few things going on at the moment so wanted a bit of guidance. I received 5 swords 10 cups and the emperor.

  36. Hello Inger,
    I absolutely love reading everything you write and this site is amazing! I have a question for you:” 🙂
    I have done several spreads for myself and I always have the same cards regardless of which spread I do. Tonight it was the full moon and again 1) King of Wands 2) 8 of Pentacles 3) Star (r) 4) Queen of Wands 5) Wheel of Fortune 6) Strength 7) 9 of Swords.
    I can’t help but think that if in 3 months the same 7 cards are appearing in every spread there’s something I am supposed to know I can’t seem to find it. I am becoming obsessed. Can you help me?!

  37. Hi, this card combination speaks of creativity, and also the need for more freedom and flexibility. It could be that you are a creative soul in a too rigid environment…..I also feel like this card combination speaks of you getting what you want as long as you stick it out….

  38. Hi, Deanne. 🙂 Did you have a particular question in mind when you laid out these cards, or is it a general reading? Also, did the card positions have any specific meanings (for example future or advice etc)?

  39. Hi Inger!

    This was a general reading tonight. I have this “feeling” that something is going to happen. These feelings or intuition has never been wrong in the past but this time I can’t see or feel what it is, it’s just a nagging sense that something is wrong or isn’t right around me.

  40. Hi again Inger – the position of the cards were this –
    1 – releasing
    2 – retaining
    3 – receiving
    4 – surroundings
    5 – giving
    6 – beginning
    7 – your lesson

    Thanks again!

  41. Hi Inger,

    This was a general reading. I have this feeling that things are not right around me and I can’t figure out what my intuition is trying to tell me.

    The of the cards were:

    7-your lesson

  42. Hi, Deanna. I think the cards are telling you that someone wants to tell you something (king of wands) and you could be picking up the energies of this person….You lesson: 9 of swords…perhaps you are learning to release some of your worries 🙂

  43. Hi Inger,

    I have been feeling very low lately and wonder if I should even go on. How depressing, I know. This morning, when I was feeling particularly bad, I pulled two cards: The Fool followed by Death. In my lowly state, I almost wanted to read it completely literally, as I should just go throw myself off a cliff. I didn’t know how to take a possibly hopeful new beginning just immediately leading to an ending. Unfortunately, I know my question wasn’t as specific as it should have been. I just sort of asked if I should bother anymore or if there was hope.

    Thank you for your insight,


  44. Hi, Aurora. I know life can sometimes be a heavy burden. But please hang in there…. This card combination is telling you that there is a whole new way of life out there for you…. and you can get excited about life again…The Death card sometimes shows up when people are internalising too much…and they don’t open up with their feelings….Have you got someone you can talk to? I feel like if you could talk with the right person/people, you would begin to feel happy about life again….:)

  45. Did a Celtic Cross…I pulled judgement death seven of swords The Wheel of Fortune the star the Knight of Swords Two of Pentacles page of Pentacles and Ace of Swords…I can’t figure it out

  46. Hi Inger, A friend pulled three cards for me,asking what do I need to be most aware of right now and received Temperance reversed followed byThe Hermit & The Chariot upright, would appreciate your interpretation. Blessings, Samar

  47. Hi, Samar. Temperance reversed can mean that you might need to slow down a part of your life and give more room for meditation and to pay more attention to your inner life. There is a new beginning for you which you will see once you slow your life down and start to concentrate on your inner strength and also to focus on what you really want.:)
    Cheers, Ingie and Noah.

  48. Hi inger! lately I was having second thoughts of taking my exam or not. I then asked someone to pull cards for me. While he’s shuffling, empress card fell out.. then he got me queen of pentacles reversed, followed by moon reversed for what I need to know. Then got the Fool card for what I should do… i was kinda confused on his explanations, so if you could help me to interpret more of the cards would be a great help! Thank you in advance! (And for the last one, he got me queen of cups for the love reading. I just broke up 4 months ago and currently single now. Hope you can elaborate about it more. Thank you!) 🙂

  49. Thank you Inger! That’s a very nice and convincing interpretation of yours! Would love to push hard more for a better future! Thank you! God bless! 🙂

  50. Hi Inger. I’m new to this but have done a 1 card reading asking about money situation/luck. Using full deck. Wheel of Fortune upright come. I asked to clarify and drew 2 cards Justice upright and hangman reversed. At this point I’m a little nervous cos what are the odds of pulling out Major arcana only, so I asked for more clarification and drew the Star upright. Decided to stop there. Any advice? Thanks in advance ?

  51. Hi, Shannon. This card combination can mean you want more control over your current situation. I also feel like you will need strong boundaries with someone in your life, and you are being pulled in a new direction in your life. I feel like you will have to make a decision to go on a path hat is more aligned with your true nature.

  52. Hello Inger,
    I have a question about the Celtic cross spread, the first card is DEath, and crosses it card is World, it was a question on a divorce, will it be successful?

  53. Hi, Ariana. The world card in that position can mean that there will be delays due to complications in proceedings. Ask the cards what you can do to speed things up. There could be only one or two things that will make the world of difference. At the moment, I feel like you will have to protect something that is dear to you.

  54. What does The Empress and The Emperor side-by-side reversed mean? I was doing a reading for my year ahead and I got them two months in a row. The card before this combo is the 9 of swords and the card after is the 8 of swords. I’m not entirely sure if the card combo is about me or my parents considering my parents have never had a good relationship. I think it might mean they are going to get divorced or, at least, I think their going to fail in the roles as parents. Maybe it means their facade of the Emperor and Empress is coming off? Seems strange because I already knew my parents were struggling, they have been for 22 years!

  55. It seems like your parents are too afraid to make the final cut. You can say some prayers for them that they can find some peace within themselves to reach a decision that will make them both happy.

  56. Hi Inger,
    I’m a fellow reader myself but for my own readings sometimes I need other readers to help me see clear being emotionally attached to the situation vs not be attached to my clients readings.
    One of my past lovers is around recently and is trying to get me back on some level not sure to what degree (haven’t had “the talk” but I’m interested in someone else ATM but questioning what the universe is trying to tell me. (Venus retrograde shadow period ATM) I did a reading asking what’s gonna happen between me and my past lover and got this reading full of Major Arcanas:
    1)High Preistess
    2) The Lovers
    3) The Moon
    4) 3 of Pentacles
    5) Ace of Pentacles
    6) Justice
    7) Solar Plexus
    8) 7 of Wands
    9) Magician
    10) Wheel of Fortune

    Shadow card ~ The Fool

    (psychic tarot for the heart deck by John Holland)

    What do you get it’s trying to tell me about my past lover and current interest?

  57. Dear Aleha. It seems like you are currently manifesting a soulmate into your life, and your energy is attracting in several love interests. I feel like your ex is not the highest and best soulmate, however, you have the Magician in the 9th position which often indicates a soulmate coming in when you least expect it. The cards also indicate that you are a very independent person and when you settle down, it will only be because you are head over heels in love, and not for any other reason. The Wheel of fortune can mean you will not be able control this situation, it flow exactly to where it is meant to be. You will have to think about what you want in a relationship and also work on any fears of commitment.

  58. Hi there,
    really new to tarot but having a lot of fun getting to know my deck. I asked my deck about what lies ahead for me and my ex (there’s still a lot of love there but circumstances are keeping us from being together right now). As I was shuffling the knight of swords jumped out and then so did Temperance. I then did a fan spread and pulled the ace of cups. Any insights you have would be greatly appreciated

  59. Hi, Elaine. Once you get over the confusing part, and things needs to be talked through. A door is opening up for you to clear the air, and also to forgive (self-forgiveness and acceptance is a must). There is a chance of reunion, but you need to put energy and effort into it.

  60. Hi, I pulled Justice, three of swords and ten of pentacles in a soulmate reading, could you provide some insight? Thanks!

  61. I am in strange place in my life, and did a nine card spread last night…
    The devil (reversed) the lovers, the emperor
    Judgement(reversed) 10 of swords, ace of Wands
    10 of hearts, 5 of hearts, death.

    So a little,about where I am, I am currently signed off sick, as not happy in my job, trying to identify another path, and establish a business from home.
    Last June broke from a 3 year relationship, still have feelings, but have recently met someone online who I get on with really well, but am not certain about, we have not met.
    Your insights would be really appreciated.

  62. Hello,

    I did a three card spread for a potential love interest this morning, i received the empress, the moon and the page of swords. I feel that the empress symbolizes me and page of swords him because he’s a bit younger. Could you help me interpret the meaning of this ? Thank You.

  63. Hi, Laytee. I like these cards, they align very well and denote you have very good communication and will have a strong connection, and I also feel like you will be able to inspire each other creatively.

  64. Hi, Annette. Now is a very good time for you to start a business from home as the cards are telling you this will make you happy and it will give you back the feeling of being in control in your life. I also feel like you will be very committed to doing this, all you need now is to really believe in yourself and that it is possible. I also feel like you need to be in a better routine, and you will make a structure that you can follow. This structure will be vital for your health and well-being. I also sense that you will really enjoy the learning process of setting up your business.

  65. Hi Inger!
    I recently did my own traditional 11 card spread for myself, the 11th card being the outcome card. My question was general. I asked “what does spirit see for me and my soulmate in the next 6-8 months”.
    The cards I pulled were :
    Top 5 layer: 8 of Wands, ace of cups, high priestess, nine of cups, page of pentacles
    Bottom 5 layer: 9 of Wands, 2 of cups, justice, 8 of cups, temperance, outcome card 6 of cups.
    Can you please interpret?

  66. Hello
    I recently picked out 3 tarot cards and got
    The 1st card was the sun
    The 2nd card was the hermit
    the 3rd card was the world
    I decided to research the meaning of the cards myself instead of getting a free reading came across your page and a few others and it seems I picked out great cards is there more you can tell me by the way they were picked and next to each other.
    Cheers joanna

  67. Hi, Joanna. You did pick out great cards, all Major Arcana cards which mean your destiny is about to be revealed to you in a big way. I feel like this has to do with your life purpose and you are meant to rise to your highest potential. You will reconsider everything and focus on what you care about the most, what truly matters to you. I feel there is a completely new life for you, and you might be seeking time alone first, and then you will have a new beginning followed by an ending that had to happen in your life. There is more love coming into your life, and you will heal from what has hurt you in the past.

  68. Hi!
    I received the heirophant in the advice section (#3) of my love spread, and the star at the final outcome card (#12). Can you please clarify?

  69. Hi, Hierophant in advice position means to focus on security and tradition in your relationship, and the security will transform your lives to be better and more enjoyable, with more things to look forward to in the future.

  70. Hello!
    Asking about a desired job change, I got the tower (past), the emperor (present) and the reversed wheel of fortune (future). I thought it can mean that right now I have to work hard for it, but I won’t get it immediately. Do you mind to share it what it means to you? Thanks.

  71. Hi, yes, I think you are right. You will get it, but it could be a delay. The Emperor in the present denotes you are quite set at the moment, so make sure that the job change will be a step forward and not a step backward, as the Wheel of fortune reversed can mean you will get something you want, only not to want it anymore. The Emperor is also there to remind you that you have other options available to you so think everything through carefully 🙂

  72. Thanks a lot, Inger. You’re helping me to clarify this question a lot. I asked now about another job change (related to the first one) and I got the reversed Tower in the past, the Star in the present and the Justice in the future. If asking twice in a row is not too much, would you mind to clarify? Thank you again 🙂

  73. Hi Inger, I pulled Strength-Temperance-The Lovers when asked how he felt for me during our latest meeting. I understand, this means a slow moving love and he won’t reveal his feelings soon. Is that correct? Also, is he thinking he’s not sure about how I feel for him. Is that right? Thank you!

  74. Hello, I am trying to learn the craft — quite new to it. I am using a couple books to help develop my reading ability. But they don’t explain how to read on a standard 3 card spread (past, present, future) when all three cards are MA cards.

    Specifically: Judgement (Inverted), The Hierophant (Inverted) and The Tower (Upright).

    I understand the individual cards, but as I have read that when a Major shows up they overshadow the rest…
    I also understand that this is conveying something more on a spiritual level as well.

    I am not asking for interpretation so much as how to interpret when this happens.

  75. Hi, i received world + moon + sun as whats coming in. I took this to mean that a very important and significant event is going to take place. Something which has been building up to this point and now the stars and planets have aligned for something to take place. Usually I would say that the moon and sun together cancels out any weighting to either side and instead represents ying and yang/ balance etc. Could their be any other interpretations for this three card combination?

  76. I feel like you will be in a new place with new people and this will change you in some way, however, it will be an awakening, and you will be able to put your mark on the world in a big way, especially when it comes to awakening others.

  77. If you are in a relationship, then I believe the cards are telling you about a renewal in your relationship, and also to be more committed and secure within your relationship. I feel like you are holding back a lot and this is creating some kind of tension in your life, thus the tower is showing up. I feel there is a major shift, possibly an ending, in about 1-2 months time.

  78. Hi Inger,

    I pulled Sun-Magician-Strength as the way he feels about us (him and me). We were seeing each other but nothing had happened and we both weren’t completely sure where it was going. I kind of initiated a talk and we aren’t seeing each other for now but he wants us to be friends and see where it goes. What is your interpretation? Thank you very much!

  79. Hi Inger, I did a Celtic Cross reading about my current job situation. My best friend/roommate and I both started working at a place and have been told they were happy with us, but also have heard that we may not have a job soon because of the expensive staffing company we work through. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

    1. The Hanged Man
    2. 9 of Pentacles
    3. 3 of wands
    4. The tower
    5. Page of cups
    6. 6 of swords
    7. The star
    8. 10 of Pentacles
    9. Knight of Pentacles
    10. Judgement
    (Bottom of deck: queen of swords)

  80. Hi there, i just gave myself a celtic cross reading and im struggling to interpret the significance of the empress in my “final outcome” (card 10) . I have the fool show up as well as the hermit the sun and the magician in this reading. I reveal that there isnt a chance im pregnant at this moment, so i doubt that would be the message here… any help apreciated. I just havent ever had so many major arcana cards in a single rrDing

  81. Hi Inger!
    I did your What Are Your Chances spread off your tarowikepedia website. My question was what are the chances of my soulmate and I having a long term commitment/relationship. The cards came as follows. I am an air sign he is an earth sign.
    1. 100% percent chance judgement (doubled with ace of pentacles 2. 75% chance 5 of swords (doubled with lovers) 3. 50% chance Queen of swords (doubled with wheel of fortune) 4. 25% chance 10 Wands (doubled with 10 pentacles) 5. 0% chance. King of cups (doubled with ace of cups).
    Can you please give me some insight on this reading? I’m new to reading for myself

  82. Dear Inger!

    I went to a fortunteller and she said, that the man I love is in love with someone else. So this morning, with a broken heart, I asked the tarot deck about our past, present and future together. While I shaffeled the cards the two of cups card fell out, so I put it on the table.
    Then I gott for past the High Priestess, for present the Magician and for the future the World card. I still dont get it…how is it possible?
    Thank You

  83. Hi. Things are confusing at the moment, and high priestess next to the magician can mean you both have strong personalities that sometimes can clash, even though you have a soulmate connection. Your confidence will return to you and with this, I feel things will improve with the man you love.

  84. Hopefully you’re still on your site! ?
    Help needed!
    I got my cards done right?
    The cards that the girl pulled for me were
    The Chariot reversed with the 9 of cups, the sun & the 10 of wands, then strength.
    When we were about to put the cards up, the sun fell out again.
    Tarot card reader tends to think it’s pregnancy but I’m not too sure. We both had gut feelings that the cards were wrong but could they be right? Could I be with child?

  85. The Sun next to 9 of cups means it will be something you have always wanted; so if you have always wanted children, it could be a child, but only if that is what you really want.

  86. The Sun next to 9 of cups means it will be something you have always wanted; so if you have always wanted children, it could be a child, but only if it is what you really want.

  87. Hi I recently had 3 cards selected for me. However the explanation was a little vague. The cards were:

    1. The Star
    2. The letter
    3. The lady

    Can you explain this combination for me please?
    Thank you x

  88. Okay, I see. 9 of cups next to Chariot reversed says to focus on love and romance and this will bring you your wish. When chariot is reversed it means to take a step back and look at the card before in the deck which is the lovers card. You might be very busy as well and you will experience success on many fronts. Focus on love and being in love…. If you are single, Chariot reversed says if you slow down, love will find you. If you are in a relationship, slowing down and focusing on what you have will make everything blossom in your life.

  89. Hello,

    Before anything, I really like your explanations of each card. They’re true and often relatable.
    I’ve been thinking about a combination mostly because none of them, individually, make sense to my current situation.
    I thought maybe they have something to say together.
    It was about my life in general, mostly regarding my fulfillness.
    Lovers upright ( I have no partners nor am I in love ), Temperance reversed, Death reversed.

    I would appreciate your guidance?

    Thank you!

  90. Hi. I feel this card combination is telling you to release something from your past. There is a completely new beginning for you, but I feel you need to let go of something first. The Lovers signify a new relationship in the future.

  91. I asked a yes or no ? And got nine of cups the knight of penicals,ten of penicals the judgement card and the six of cups so I’m confused

  92. Someone very important to me drew my cards last night; I got The Star, TheHierophant, and The Hermit in that order. No idea what to make of pulling three major arcana cards. Can you help?

  93. This is a very positive card combination and it speaks of you being on the right path in your life and you can trust in what you are doing now. You will have more security and abundance as a result.

  94. Hello Beautiful Inger!

    This morning Spirit deliver onto me a beautiful message! I believe I am stepping into new territories orchestrated by Divine POWER! I’m so excited to know that I am in the hands of the Spirit <3

    What is Spirit sharing with you?

    The Empress–The World–The Fool!

    P.S. I'm not pregnant and there is no possible way that I can be!!! 🙂

  95. Hi, Marina. I believe this card combination speaks of a completely new beginning for you, and you have something to teach the world, a message you can share with humanity. I also feel you will free yourself from negative people and you will heal from past heartache.

  96. HI, Inger…
    I was asking the cards what can I do to make the guy I am having relationship with stays loyal and honest to me. I got the Sun, the High Priestess and the Emperor. Could you please enlighten me with the reading? Thank you ^^

  97. Greetings. I recently used an on-line site which chose for me the Magician reversed, The Empress and Judgement. I was informed that this is a most unusual combination. Have you any advice as to whether or not I should be worried at all?

  98. You are getting 3 major arcana cards and they all speak of creating a strong emotional connection, in their own ways. The Sun through joy and laughter, the High Priestess through a psychic connection, and the Emperor through strong boundaries. I feel you have a strong connection and all you have to do is to relax and enjoy your relationship.

  99. Hi. I feel this has to do with a relationship that is changing and you might not feel ready for these changes. If you are single than this can denote a new person coming into your life soon.

  100. Hi Inger,
    Thank you for the enlightment. Really appreciate it. I do hope our relationship built based on strong connection and good will. And to have stronger bond by time. Time will tell.
    Bless you and Thank you.

  101. I received a 3 card spread then they drew a fourth.
    6 of cups reversed,
    10 of swords
    Wheel of fortune
    The magician reversed.

  102. Change your mindset about this. You can create something for yourself, even working for yourself from home….you might have to do some training in a certain area. Remember, Age is just a number…..I feel you could have a home business….

  103. Dear Inga,
    I am happy to have found your site. A question if I may… I met someone long distance a year ago and because of communication breakdowns we went our separate ways. He felt as though we needed to put our troubles behind us before even pursuing friendship let alone anything more. He has always been in my heart. After some months passing he contacted me again to ask if we can see each other. I hesitated and said no. Last night I did a three card spread with a clarifier to seek out what I ought to do. This is what I cast: Magician upright, Hermit upright, Hierophant reversed, Lovers upright. Any insights would be helpful as I am new to the RW.
    Thank you.

  104. Hi, as long as you are both single, this card combination indicates you will have a lot of communication. There is a sense of spiritual soul connection between you.

  105. The aeon the sun the hermit. this combination is hard for me to understand in a weird spot in life and this just sums it up lol.

  106. The cards are reminding you to remember that even if you are in a strange place in your life now, since you are an eternal being, and also a very old soul, this time in your life will pass and things will soon make more sense to you. Now is a good time to connect to your soul and to your inner life, and have a real conversation with yourself about what you really truly want and what is important to you.

  107. I really appreciate and admire this article, Inger! Thanks so much for all of the effort! 🙂

    I recently did a small spread in regards to a relationship (something to the effect of “in the next 7 days, what can I expect ___ to do to pursue a romantic relationship with me”), and received The Lovers followed by an inverted Chariot.

    Could you possibly help to decipher this combination with the question in mind?

    Thanks so much!

  108. Hi,

    My relationship have had ups and downs, and i wanted to know wther my boy friend and me will ever get maried and live together. I ask the queation aboit our relationship.
    The question was: “what is he planing to do with me?”
    And i got the justice, the wheel of fortune ans the four of swords, i am not sure how to understand those.

    Thank you for your help

  109. Hi, I did a reading and in the resolution part I got in the following order Tower + Death + 3 of gold. It was about money. what does this mean to you ? Iam baffled

  110. Hi Inger,

    I recently did a 3 card spread where I drew an upside down magician first followed by the upright empress, followed by the upright judgement card. I’m not entirely sure what this means for me so any insight you can give me would be really helpful! Thanks! ?

  111. Hi, Nick. You need to make good judgements now when it comes to money. Everything will work out well, and I can see you working really hard in the near future. You are making some life-changing decisions that will bring you more security. You have been a bit off-path lately, but are finding your feet again.

  112. Always pay attention to reversed Magician, as this card reversed speaks of someone who sees you as a resource and would like to exploit you. This card combination could be a warning not to be taken advantage of.

  113. I pulled the hermit the star in the upright potion and the judgement card I was told this is a odd combo wondering how true that is

  114. I have this 3 cards what the significants of this 3 cards the high pristess reverced the star and the chariot

  115. When the high priestess is reversed it can be that you must face something within you that is causing pain in your life. This can be from childhood, and it can also be something in your environment now that is a trigger. However, since all the cards are major arcana cards it can be something that happened a long time ago that you must now address. The star speaks of coming out of the darkness and into the light. This can be a very painful experience, and you need to love yourself and take care of yourself in the process. The chariot speaks of the light at the end of the tunnel, and you will be victorious.
