  1. Hi Ingrid,
    I haven’t seen much improvement in a possible reconciliation with my crush. I’ve done several readings in the past and although things have improve in the sense that we don’t argue anymore, I want to know if there is any possibility of a reconciliation…these are the cards I got:
    ace of cups, 10 of cups, knight of cups, 4 of swords (he recently retired and is on a roadtrip cross county right now), heirophant, and 7 of penecles all upright. Can you please help me with this reading??

  2. Ingrid, it’s me again. I am really sorry to bother and to keep asking the same things over and over. I am wondering if you could please help me! I am completely broken right now and I feel so confused. I guess there is a lot I would like to tell you but not sure if this would be right platform for me to share. I was wondering if you could please do a reading for me. I don’t think I am doing them correctly or maybe interpreting them correctly or maybe want to see what I hope to see and missing the bigger picture. Is there an e-mail where I could email you privately and tell you my story?? Maybe I have been following the wrong advice and I need good guidance right now. Please help me! Also, for some reason your response doesn’t show up unless I make a new post. so weird.

  3. Dear Inger!

    I asked the tarot this morning, what r the feelings of my crush towards me. Answer: King of Cups, 7 of Cups (clarified by 10 of Cups), 7 of Pentacles (clarified by XX.Judgement). I guessed a few variations by reading your site, but not sure. Please, help me here. Thank U!

  4. Double 7 (7 of cups and 7 of pents) in a tarot reading can mean your crush could be a bit cynical when it comes to feelings. This is someone who feels more comfortable in an authority role and it will take this person a while to trust someone when it comes to romance.

  5. As a day card what does Reversed 7 of Pentacles clarified by 9 of Pentacles mean ? I also need to make a decision on a job offer, where the hours are long, eating into my personal time. However with my current financial situation, I am wondering am I making a mistake if I decline it due to this ?
