  1. Hi Inger!

    Sorry to ask another question, but your interpretations have been extremely helpful! I truly appreciate you taking the time to help us out with tarot interpretations. I would like to know if you pulled the 2 of Cups as your overall theme, but then clarified it with the 8 of Swords and the Queen of Cups (reversed), how would you interpret these three cards together?

    Thank you so much once again!

  2. Hi. This can mean that you don’t completely trust in a soul connection and you are doubting if it is real or not. You might feel the need for more romance in your life, and taking time for more romance and intimacy will improve the quality of your life.

  3. Hi there, how would you interpretate the folliwing cards, if the question: what this man wants to do with me? The World, 4 of Swords and Queen of Cups?
