Love must be the most important thing in life, and perhaps the only reason we are incarnated into the physical plane. We are here to experience love. Due to the complexity of our human nature, many beliefs have been created about love; such as love is pain, love is hate, love is a battlefield! These are limited and twisted beliefs that stand in your way to creating amazing love in your life, whether you are single or in a relationship.

  1. Hey!
    I have a question. I asked the tarot what should I do about a guy I have a crush on, if I should forget about him or not. This guy lives in another country and I’m going there in September. We had an immediately connection. I also had a recent breakup.
    I got Death – Temperance – Lovers – Hanging Man – World.
    My interpretation is that I need to cut everything with my ex, let everything heal and then move on to that guy. But I don’t know. Maybe I’m overthinking, But I don’t think the cards are saying me to forget about him. Are they? My intuition says no, but I’m still afraid.

    Thank you

  2. Hi, I posted a question I think over a week ago? I did ask to be notified via email but didnt receive any notification. I cannot find my question on here now 🙁 to see if you answered or not ? tried a search with my name but nothing came up ? HELP please 😀

  3. Hi Inger,

  4. Hi! I asked if my ex will come back and as an outcome(love celtic cross,10 position+11+12 ) I had : hermit reserved, fool and temperance. What does this mean? Thank you?

  5. Hi! I’m finding your site really helpful since I’m still learning how to read tarot. I’m in a confusing point in my relationship and did a three-card spread with just the Major Arcana while asking for some clarity of the energy between my partner and me. I drew the High Priestess for myself, the Hierophant for the relationship, and the Hermit for him. There are both good and bad aspects to these cards. Could you give me more clarity on what this combination means?

  6. These are 3 strong cards. I feel your relationship has a lot of potentials. Your partner got the Hermit. He might be dealing with feelings of loneliness and being alone, right or wrong. If he does feel this way, communication is the key. I feel he needs to be listened to and to be able to talk freely about issues he is carrying. He could be internalizing a lot as well.

  7. Hi – I am in the very early stages of learning the Tarot. I’ve just tried a love spread. I drew 5 cards. They were from left to right – Death, The Devil, Justice, Temperance (reversed) and Knight of Wands.

    I am a bit freaked out because I know major Arcana cards are very important. I’ve read that they signify things beyond the querent’s control and are messages from the Universe. Can you give me some guidance as to what this means? I would struggle through and try to decipher it myself but as I have so many major cards, I feel it’s important to understand what I am seeing.

  8. Hi Inger!

    I asked a question how does he feel about me and got
    9 of Swords – High Priestess – Page of Pentacles – Knight of Pentacles
    What this could mean?

    Thank you

  9. The Major Arcanas are there to tell you that there is a lot of destiny occurring in your love life at the moment and it is to get you to be in the right relationship in the right way and in the right place so that you can fulfill your life destiny as well. 🙂

  10. Hello Inger!
    I wanted to ask you for a help to interpret my tarot reading… I asked cards will i meet new love/soulmate this summer and i pulled out:
    King of Cups
    Queen of Cups
    Knight of Pentacles
    I’m totally single and i have no idea how to get the message from this spread. (Also in other readings these cards repeat themselfs very often).
    I would be really very thankfull for your insight to this.

  11. I feel yes, and I feel this person is very different from what you expect, and I feel you will have a strong friendship as well. This is someone kind and caring with good social skills who knows how to communicate with you. 🙂

  12. I am going thru a turmoil that I think is partially situational and partially old fears. I got the high priestess, the relationship card is the moon, and his card is the hermit. He is in a relationship, we have been friends for a long while, but ventured into a lustfull connection via text and photos. It just happend. But I have feelings for him that I shouldn’t have I think, and I have felt the need to withdraw just now, since my inner thoughts and emotions are in a turmoil. We connects so well spiritually, mindwise and overall, we have much friendly love between us, and I don’t want to lose that. I’m a capricorn with gemini rising, he is a leo with the moon in pisces. He can sense me even when I don’t speak to him, and I’m afraid I’m going to lose him when he senses my instability. This is not an easy situation, there is also distance between us.

  13. Hi, Valan. The moon speaks of deception and things being in the dark. You are filling a hole in his relationship. If you chose to continue the connection with him, it will make it hard for you to manifest a relationship with your own as this situation is causing you much stress and turmoil. Now is a time to be honest with yourself what you truly desire in your life. You got the High Priestess card. That means you can manifest great love for yourself. Write down everything you want and need in a soulmate and begin focusing your attention towards this 🙂
