      Hi Christina,

      I moved your request to this page – just to be consistent. Yours is the first one on this updated page, which is probably a bit confusing.

      I’m sorry to hear you are having difficulties in your marriage.

      Looking at your birth dates, this is a reasonably compatible match that relies on a good mix of social contact and time alone together. The relationship is an opportunity for both partners to learn some personal lessons about themselves and each other.

      I’m using the Robin Wood Tarot and your card is the Nine of Cups. This card shows a well-to-do man, dressed in rich purple robes. Behind him stand nine ornate gold chalices.

      Usually this card signifies a much wanted level of emotional achievement. It is often called the ‘wish card’. However, nines generally mean that a significant life phase is coming to an end. So perhaps the state of affairs that this card represents has already been and gone. It is not a negative card at all, far from it, so I am wondering if you are being held together by circumstances. In other words, your lifestyle is the glue that is keeping you together?

      Looking at the card at the base of the deck – the Six of Pentacles. Again, this seems to confirm that this is about your way of life. You may be reluctant to end the marriage because it would mean the prospect of a financial setback.

      Neither of these cards is offering me much in the way of an answer to your question, Christina. For me, they are both positive and I would say that, yes, there is potential for you to work on your marriage and bring it back from the brink – but only if you are both willing to do the work. If you are unsure of your next step, I would recommend that you take no action for the time being. Your path may be made clear pretty soon.

      Good luck.

      Hi Trish,

      Congratulations on your new job 🙂

      I’m using a deck called Tarot of the New Vision. Your card is the Knave (Page) of Swords. We see the Page of Swords from behind. His right foot is pointed outwards and appears to be resting on the head of a shattered statue. He holds his (or her) sword in both hands over his left shoulder.

      This card suggests that your job could be to do with figures or perhaps research. It is pretty neutral so doesn’t confirm whether you are in the right place for you. However, the Page of Swords is extremely resourceful and does not give in to pressure. She accepts her position and endeavours to make it work for her. I like the Robin Wood version of this card which is illustrated by a girl running down the side of a mountain as though she is carrying divine inspiration. You might well make the decision not to hang around too long in this job, but meanwhile, you can make it be your dream job.

      Take a cue from ‘divine inspiration’ and make a list of all the good aspects of your job. Think of anything you like and write it down. The more you can find the better. Maybe you like the hours, or the location, or the person who helps you the most, or the money, or even your desk. Write down every positive detail you can and add to it to include good things that happen. Such as a light-hearted phone call, or finishing a task early, or whatever. Every day, look for the positives and make a note of them later. If you keep doing this, you’ll find more and more things. You’ll be looking for them. You’ll be expecting them. Pretty soon there will be more positives than negatives. Try it. It works.

      Good luck!

    Apologies, but I would like to include a little more detail to my question if that’s okay. I just wanted to add his birthday too as it might make it easier for you.

    His is 17th Aug.

    Thank you 😊

    Edit: Original Question – Will a relationship blossom with the person I like or am I wasting my time?

    26th Aug

      Hello Az,

      Based on your birthdays of 17th August and 26th August, this potential relationship is straightforward and transparent. There are few conflicts and each have a good sense of timing. There is a lot of common ground and many opportunities for agreement. So no obstacles there 🙂

      I’m using the Gilded Tarot and you card is the Knight of Pentacles. This may explain a lot 🙂 The Knight of Pentacles sits quietly astride his horse. They stand in a beautiful glen surrounded by trees, plants and various wildlife.

      The Knight of Pentacles is usually a personality card, reflecting aspects of the person’s character. Now, I can’t tell you how he feels about you, that would be unethical, however I can tell you that he may appear to be hard to reach, if you know what I mean. This is because the Knight of Pentacles is very deliberate in his actions. He is not the type to rush into any relationship. He will always take things quite slowly until he is certain.

      I, personally, think the Knight of Pentacles is the best court card in the deck. Once you have got his attention and interest, he will always be loyal and true. His feelings are not apparent on the surface but hidden deep within. If ever a personality could be said to have hidden depths, this is the one.

      Can’t say for sure if the relationship will go any further, it depends on how you go about it. I would say that the best way is to treat it as a friendship first, nothing else. No flirting or making your interest too obvious. Just be open and straight with him, as he will be with you.

      The base card is Justice, which I can’t connect to your question, though you might be able to. The next card after the Knight of Pentacles is the Sun, which definitely suggests blooming and blossoming.

      Hope it works out for you, Az.

      Hi Angel,

      I think a more useful question might be “What else can you do to improve your career and salary this year?” I’m using the Robin Wood Tarot and have drawn the Six of Swords. A figure sits in a swan-shaped boat and is propelled across a lake by a ghostly apparition. The boat and its occupants are headed towards a distant shoreline and a cave at water level. Inside the cave a light shines like a star.

      The Six of Swords suggests that you have probably done all you need to do, and now you should simply get on with your job, knowing that all is being taken care of behind the scenes. Make your current job, your dream job, by staying focused and carrying out your tasks to your best ability. The key to improvements in any situation is to ‘know’ all is well and things are getting better. Practice this ‘knowing’ all the time – “I know I will get that promotion.” “I know opportunities are coming my way.” “I know I can be the best I can be.” Keep your eye, mind and spirit on that star.

      Good luck.

    I have 2 sons living on the streets that are using drugs. I took my vacation and went to southern Ca. To see grand kids and friends and them. The worst vacation ever.
    My question is Did I do right? My actions were a little harsh and maybe selfish.
    Please tell me honestly and I don’t need you to tell me what you think I want to hear. I did something wrong in raising them and don’t want to continue doing so.
    This isn’t a “pretty” situation and don’t expect a pretty answer.
    Thank you so very much.

      Hi Lori,

      I could draw a card to answer your question, “Did I do right?” but how will that help you now? It’s done. You know whether it was right or not. You know if you did your best to help your kids. Surely, a better question would be “How do I move on with this situation?” Or “Is there anything I can do now to improve things?”

      This is a ‘big’ situation for one card to answer, but I’ll draw one and see what it says to you.

      I’m using the Robin Wood and your card is the Ace of Wands. This is a card of pure energy rather than a ‘situation’. It shows that if you remain open and positive, you may well receive a solution. This card means that you must KNOW that it all will work out. You have to remember that what you see as ‘wrong’ may not be so at all. Your sons may be learning valuable lessons, or they may be in a position to help someone else. You can’t see through their eyes. You can only see and judge through the eyes of their mother.

      Presumably your boys are over the age of 18 and are capable of making decisions for themselves? Then let them. They are their own men. They are making their own choices. You, as their mother, probably made mistakes, just like we all do. However, there’s only so much you can do. At some point they have to go free.

      Looking at the base card, the Knight of Swords – it seems like you went steaming in, determined to rescue them, or to talk sense into them. The Knight of Swords shows someone on a mission, who is convinced he is right and set on getting the results he wants. Yes, this character might well use harsh methods because he thinks he’s doing the best for all concerned. Your intentions were good, but it didn’t work this time.

      So leave them be. You have a life, so live it. Use the encouragement of the Ace of Wands to wait for… let’s call it ‘divine inspiration’. Something will change, don’t worry. It’ll be okay xx

    I have never had any interest in the Tarot over the years, but for some reason now I seem to be drawn to looking into it.
    I have purchased some decks but find all the information around confusing.
    Is it worth my continuing to study it?

    My birth date is the 4th April.

    Thank you for the chance to get a reading, a new experience for me,

      Hello Linda,

      That’s an unusual question 🙂 Before I draw your card, let me just address the confusion issue. Everyone is confused at first when confronted with what seems a very complicated system. All those meanings to memorise and then all those reversals, and symbols and elements, and numbers, and court cards – argh!

      Here’s where to begin:

      1. Learn the basics of numerology 1 – 10. It’s a progression: Ones = beginnings, Fives are a pivot point; a challenge, and Tens are endings that swing back to a new beginning. Double digits are added together to fall into 1-10. So 10 = 1, 11 = 2.

      2. Learn the four elements and their qualities. Fire, water, air and earth.

      That’s all you need to start. 14 things. Armed with those, you can start reading tarot. I will be writing a blog post soon about numerology and tarot, so pop back in a few days.

      Onto your card. I’m using the Rider-Waite (you must have a copy of that one. Use it for now and put the other decks away).

      I’ve drawn the King of Pentacles. This card is numbered 14 1+4 = 5 in the element of Earth. Fives in tarot indicate a challenge. Earth represents practicalities. Therefore the basic interpretation means that, for you, the idea of learning tarot is wrapped up in the practical issues of actually learning the system. And it’s daunting. A huge challenge.

      We can go further with the Court Cards as they are personality cards and belong to one of four families. The King of Pentacles is the head of his earth-centric family. He is self-made. He worked hard and has succeeded in all he set out to do. He’s reached the stage where he can sit back and guide other people. We could make a connection between The King of Pentacles and the Major Arcana, Hierophant.

      He tells you that learning anything worthwhile is always tough at the beginning. Being a Five he is issuing you with a challenge. Are you up to it? It’s your choice.

      Hope that helps and also that I see you back here soon.

    My love interest has withdrawn after saying he didn’t have the time it takes to put into getting to know someone to have a relationship. He is too busy working and struggling financially. He called me a curveball and he hasn’t talked to me since. My question is, will he ever come back? Or do I just need to move on?

    Thank you so much! I’m curious to hear what you have to say!

      Hi Kate,

      Sorry to hear that. Men.

      I’m using Tarot of the New Vision and your card is the Knight of Wands. In this card, the Knight is pictured from behind so that we can see what he’s looking at as his horse prances in that showy way. From this angle we can see that, in front of the Knight, is a camel train making its way past – this is presumably what is startling the horse. There are several people on foot leading the laden camels.

      This is actually a perfect illustration to confirm that your ex is currently being distracted by other things in his life. The Knight of Wands is not very good at keeping his focus at the best of times. I think that your ex has probably made the right decision. What you mustn’t do is take it personally. Though, frankly, if someone labelled me a ‘curveball’, I wouldn’t give them the time of day, let alone waste my energy thinking about them 😀 He probably meant the relationship, rather than you.

      So yes, take a leaf out of his book and move on. I think he’s done you a favour.

      Looking at the next card, the Ace of Pentacles. This indicates that there is something new and good and exciting coming along for you. Could be connected to a relationship, but more likely it’s to do with work or where you live, or perhaps some extra money. Be open to all possibilities.

      Good luck.

    This last year I made a commitment to better living in mind. body, and spirit. The changes and feelings are remarkable and it is difficult to believe the transformation in a year. Advancing in spirit is confusing at times and rank with conflicting advice from others. What can I do to more intuitively move forward in spiritual development? My birthday is 09/14

      Hi Jake,

      I agree, spiritual ‘advice’ is confusing. I think mainly because no-one can experience your journey. Only you can see the world from your unique perspective.

      I’m using the Rider-Waite and have drawn the Eight of Pentacles. That’s perfect 🙂 This card suggests that if you focus on what you are already doing, i.e. mind and body, the spiritual journey will take care of itself. It also shows that an ‘active meditation’ as in working with your hands or walking, is just as valuable as any other kind.

      The card at the base of the deck is the Ace of Swords, which tells you to let go of the idea that there is a ‘right’ kind of development and a breakthrough will come. A revelation of sorts.

      Good question and all the best to you.

    Last year a 7 month relationship ended between me and this guy I was seeing. Although I cared for him deeply there were always problems and trouble arising. There were other women, a older woman that came to my home and eventually her son’s friend even pulled a gun on me, then there was a younger woman around my age which was the final straw she called me while they were in bed together in which he woke up and denied me altogether after being with him less than 24 hours before. My concern is I know that relationship was unhealthy and no good and needed to end. However, the younger woman to my understanding had been doing some evil things to draw him near and keep him near and I had been told by 3 different sources that this woman also made sure she drove me mad along with whatever bad energy she could send my way to ensure I was undesirable to him. I try hard to cleanse myself and home thru rituals, prayers, and mediation. I started seeing someone about 2-3 months after that which we are taking our time (8 months later we are still dating and learning each other) he seems fine and what he lacks he tries hard to compromise and do better. My question is lately some things have seemed off around me not the new guy, but like finding a job and earlier tonight a accident with my vehicle. I want to be sure that younger woman is no longer sending negative energy my way. I was told in 2 separate readings that I had a jealous woman around me. Also is this new guy right for me?

      Hi Rigene,

      As this is only a quick one-card reading, I can’t answer your questions in-depth. I’ll pull a card to ask what energies are currently around you. However, you need to know that this other woman cannot create your experience **unless you allow her**. The more credence you give her, the more you willingly give her your power, the easier it will be for her to influence you. The way to prevent this is to ignore her existence. You must know that she cannot cause harm to you. If you talk about her to others, you can be sure what you say will get back to her, therefore giving her even more leverage. If it helps, do a short banishing ritual – there are plenty of resources on the web. Then forget her. Your revenge is to live well in the present.

      I’m using a round deck, called Songs for the Journey Home. Your card is the High Priestess. A woman sits, safe within the earth, within the roots of a tree. Her eyes are closed and she is peaceful.

      This card suggests that you can connect with this peaceful energy, by letting go of negative thinking. Just be. Feel the love that the universe has for you and let it seep through your being. Visualise yourself being safe and cared for. Do this constantly in order to create a protective shield around you.

      The High Priestess keeps her own counsel. She is able to find peace in the present moment and allow the universe to bring her the wisdom and knowledge that she needs for any situation. All she has to do is tune into her own intuition.

      You can find images for this card online – just type the name of the deck and card into Google.

      The card at the base of the deck is ‘Earth Creating’, the equivalent of the Queen of Pentacles. This is a practical card whose message is simple. Just deal with what’s in front of you and leave the past behind you. You’ve moved on, so bring your thoughts with you – don’t niggle at past mis-doings like a sore tooth.

      Hope that helps, and that you regain ownership of your personal power soon. Good luck in your new relationship.

        Thank you Troi! It’s very ironic these these two cards are the same two cards that were in my last reading. I had quite a few pentacles card that appeared in that gilded tarot reading. The same thing I heard then is that I may not be allowing myself to move forward because of my mind. I hear this all the time from my new love…he keeps telling me to think positive and don’t give outside forces power by thinking negative or talking about the past hurt. I appreciate you. I just need to find a way to put my mind at ease so I can completely let go so I can live in the now. Thank you so much again!

          I think it’s a question of taking your cue from the QoP and making a decision to put those people and their antics firmly in the past. Dwelling on anything keeps its vibration active in your present. Your new love is perfectly correct 🙂

          Your new mantra is “Release”.

    Hi there. I have enjoyed reading your readings. No pun intended. I have been working on confident issues both personal and professional. I have been very stuck for some time and am wondering if there is a change (hopefully positive) coming my way either personal or professional? Birthday: September 22.

    1. Troi Post author

      Hello Sharon, thank you for taking the time to read them.

      I’m using the Robin Wood Tarot and your card is the Hierophant. He’s a bit pompous-looking in this deck and I believe that Robin Wood, herself stated that she doesn’t like this card because to her her it represents stuffy institutions and the rule-making/rule-following people in them. I have a different view. I feel that rather than being a dictatorial influence, I think the Hierophant is a guide. Someone who has travelled our path before we get to it. Who is able to point to a distant goal and the road to it, but, at the same time, is able to stand back and let us make discoveries for ourselves.

      It is your task to search out the way forward. Change isn’t coming to you unless you meet it halfway. Once you take a step outside your comfort zone, someone will be there to guide you. So you have to decide what changes you’d like to have happen, both personally and professionally and move, just a little way, towards them.

      The Hierophant is a five card, and fives are a little unbalanced, there’s a sort of tipping point that offers a challenge. Sometimes it’s something you decide to do, at others it is forced upon you. Right now, I think it’s your choice.

      The card at the bottom of the deck is the Seven of Wands. Sevens are very spiritual in tarot: they represent the ‘light that shines within’ and the Seven of Wands suggests that it’s time you let your light shine forth and do something for you – reach for your ambitions and be prepared to say ‘Yes!’

      Good luck 🙂

        Troi – Thank you. That explanation was very helpful. Very much appreciated. Professionally that pivot just happened and I just made my pitch for something new. It was met with a wait and see attitude so there is still time to make that change and hopefully a favorable view will be forthcoming. Personally I am still in the unknown territory but I am trying to explore new ways to get out of my comfort zone. A tough one. Again, thank you.

      Hello again, Alejandra, I hope you are well.

      I’m using the Fountain Tarot and your card is the Five of Wands. Shadowy figures hold their wands or staves against a sunset orange background. It’s not clear whether they are about to begin or just ended a battle. The figures look a little weary so I shall assume the fighting is over.

      Fives in tarot are usually about challenges. Wands are connected to spirit, action and inspiration. The Five of Wands often suggests a change of direction that means stepping out of our comfort zone, of doing battle with our own desire to not expose ourselves to failure or discomfort. It can also hint at a major turning point in life, where we have to make a decision about how to proceed.

      The card at the base of the deck is the Page of Coins – the student. This card suggests that you might consider retraining, or a course of study. Perhaps it could be done in your spare time or online? I know from previous readings that you enjoy working with people and helping them, the thing that pops into my head is some kind of health-related career. I’m not sure if it’s something you have considered, but I feel you have the ability to comfort people.

      Good luck, Alejandra.

      Not really, babyblue, because asking me to read someone else’s private feelings is sort of like an invasion of privacy – known in tarot circles as ‘third party readings’. However, you can ask a general question about a potential relationship, if you provide the day and month of birth for both of you.

      Hi Bunedeth,

      Before I draw a card, I’ve checked to see whether you would be compatible as a couple and you probably would 🙂 This would be a relationship based on laughter and fun. However, like many who can be witty and funny, there may be a darker side to the relationship, perhaps where one partner, or possibly both may veer toward depression over the longer term.

      I’m using the Arcus Arcanum Tarot and your card is the Ace of Wands. A hand holding a staff reaches from a red-hot flame. In the foreground stands a salamander, while charging from the background is a huge lion.

      The Ace of Wands represents the essence of pure passion. It also, like all the aces, means new beginnings. So I would say it is likely that a new passion will be in your near future. I can’t tell from this one card if it will be John or not, but if he is currently the only love interest in your life, then the odds are stacked in his favour.

      The card at the base of the deck is the Three of Pentacles represents a collaborative working situation. So John could be a co-worker or you may find your love within your workplace, or strongly connected to it.

      Have fun, Bunedeth!

      Hi Martie,

      Welcome to Tarot Study. I’m using the Tarot of the New Vision and your card is the Knave of Chalices (Cups). This card bodes well for your new business. It suggests that you will put a lot of yourself into your work and infuse it with love. If you want to make a success of it, you will 🙂

      I need to mention the card at the base of the deck. I don’t think this is connected with your work at all. It’s the Tower, which suggests that there may be a big challenge for you over the next few weeks. This could be difficult but you need to know that it is a necessary ‘clearing out’ of stale energy. I promise you that once it’s over with, you’ll look back and realise that it was for the best.

    There a medium or psychic emailing me occasionally talking about we have a spiritual connection and believes we didn’t come across each other on accident she tells me things about readings she doing for me because of vision she had of my name recently gave tarot 3 card reading supposedly in full personal messages for me specifically quite thorough. She doesn’t always ask for money but if I want to get exact details like lucky numbers and dates of significants I must pay .

    Hello,

    Appreciate your services! My birthday is July 15th and his is March 29th. I feel he is the one, but I am not sure.

      Hi there,

      Your birthdays suggest a relationship that is better in the realm of communication than in the physical. It is excellent on an intellectual level, but it’s possible something is missing despite the meeting of minds. A certain chemistry, if you like. This partnership can last a long time, but the road leading to permanence is difficult.

      I’m using the Tarot of the New Vision and your card is The World. Given your doubt about this relationship, my feeling is that you have been doing really well in attracting the kind of person you want. However, you are also able to discern the aspects you don’t want. You are honing and sculpting your life. The World card indicates that you have reached a plateau, a level of spiritual achievement. In your personal relationship, as in life, you are in exactly the right place. However, soon the process will start again. You will feel the need to move on. Now it could work in two ways: either you will, as a couple, be able to take the relationship ‘higher’. Or, you will come to an understanding that he is almost exactly what you want, but not quite. It’s your decision to make. My advice is to let it roll on for a while until you gain some clarity.

      The base card is the Four of Swords: give your thinking a rest and, instead, let your instinct and intuition guide you.

      Good luck.

    I am leaving my job (of seven months) in a few weeks as I was feeling very trapped. uncomfortable and very unhappy. Could the cards tell me what the Universe has in story for me now I have taken this step.

      Hi Nelly,

      Well done you for taking a positive step. You are very brave.

      I’m using the Gilded Tarot and your card is the Four of Cups. This suggests that you have attained a level of emotional stability after your period of unhappiness. You are not leaping with joy, but there is a sense of relief. Have a look at the card on-line to see what I mean. You may not be quite ready to see what the universe has lined up for you, but it’s there. There’s an opportunity right in front of you. It could be starting your own mini-business. Or there’s someone you know who would gladly offer you a temporary job if you asked. However, don’t worry about it for the time being. Take this time to get back to yourself – you will soon know when you are ready to receive guidance from the big U.

      The base card is the Ten of Wands, which advises you to shed commitments and responsibilities if you can. Lighten the load. Try to simplify your life.

      Good luck, I hope your life turns around and you find your Nelly-shaped niche soon 🙂

    Greetings…

    My ex husband and I lived together until last December (2016) when I finally told him I was done. Since then, he’s been sending nasty emails, text/voice messages and damaged property at my home,.

    He’s been quiet for the past month or so, and I’m wondering if he’s finally moving on.

    Thank you.

      Hi Janice,

      Sorry to hear you’ve had to deal with this. I know exactly what it’s like, having been through it myself.

      I’m using the Gilded Tarot and your card is the Tower. The Tower is one of those cards that strikes fear into most people. However, instead of an impending fear of doom, when I see it I get an ‘impending feeling of relief’. What I think will happen is that there will be an event or incident that may cause you ex to blame you. He is desperate to be in control of the situation (the base card is the Emperor) and of you, and his actions are driven by frustration. So, it could all start up again, but the way to deal with it is for you to act like a ‘gray rock’. Google it. Once he realises that you are never going to react to him again, he will give up and the relief part of the Tower experience will kick in. It’s an ever-changing thing. He’s quiet now, but may not be next week/month.

      You have to look at the event/incident/manufactured problem as the one that will finally give you the release and closure you need. It will be the point where you can finally say he is moving on… and so can you.

      Good luck, and do let me know how it turns out.

      Hello Teresa, thank you for your question.

      I’m using the Robin Wood Tarot and have drawn the Seven of Wands. I have a feeling that this is not going to answer your question, but may be related to something else in your life. Or Eric’s perhaps.

      The Seven of Wands shows a young man standing on an embankment. He appears to be facing up to a gathering of unseen enemies or combatants. He looks pretty confident and is holding the higher ground.

      This card indicates that you are currently taking the right action, or the right stance, on an issue. You may feel isolated but know that the power is in your hands. Know that you should stick to your guns. Now, as I mentioned, this might be your issue or it might be why Eric seems so out of touch at the moment.

      The base card is the Devil, which means that someone is shackled to someone or something that is not good for them. They are unable to break the bonds right now until they come to terms with the fact that this continuing behaviour is destructive and negative.

      I don’t know if this information is useful to you or not, Teresa, the cards don’t always answer what was asked.

      Good luck.

      Hi Kema,

      Your question is a classic example of what not to ask the tarot 😀 You could get an answer to it by tossing a coin. Think about what you want from the cards before asking. If it can be answered ‘yes’ or ‘no’, it’s not a very good question, is it? So, what do you really want to know about getting a job? What information do you need to help you?

      I’m using the Robin Wood Tarot and your card is The Hanged Man. This card shows a young man hanging upside-down, with his legs hooked around the branch of a tree. He seems quite relaxed, given his awkward position.

      The Hanged Man suggests that you won’t get a job offer just yet. It shows that the energy around you is sort of stuck in neutral. This is not a bad card at all. In fact, it might be just what you need to get yourself moving. Sometimes you have to take some kind of action in order to stir things up. So do something different – keep applying for jobs, of course, but do some other stuff as well. Have a clear out of your clothes, do some decluttering. Clean your home. Think of it as an energy re-set or making room for change to happen.

      The card at the bottom of the deck is Strength. Strength indicates that you have the capability to persuade someone round to your way of thinking. When you go for interviews, be different. Offer a unique point-of-view. Make the interviewer remember you. You can achieve more by using your resources to persuade rather than to overcome.

      Good luck!

        How do I formulate questions to ask? My original question was what is blocking me from getting a job, but I wasn’t sure so I just asked a simpler question.

        Thank you 😀

          Hi Kema, it’s always best to ask things like what will help me at this time? Or what do I need to know/learn about the situation? If you just ask “Will I?” you are inviting a yes/no response, so all you have to do is to work out what you truly need to know.

          As far as what’s blocking you, it’s right there in the Hanged Man card. Either the timing is not quite right or you need to get the energy (and feelings) around getting a new job moving. So anything you can do to make a shift will help. Physical effort is always a good way to start, as is making literal space so that energy can flow. Think of it in the same way as opening a window to let the breeze shift the stale atmosphere in a room. x

      Hi Sally, it’d be helpful to have his birthday too, so I can check your compatibility. Not to worry.

      I’m using the Robin Wood and your card is the Page of Wands. This card shows a young woman standing on the leeward side of a sand dune. She holds a gleaming, bejewelled staff which is beaming out light in all directions.

      The Page of Wands tells you that you are about to begin an adventure and it may well be connected to a love affair. At the moment you are feeling a little hesitant about taking this forward. Do not be. Follow your instincts and let your feelings be known.

      The card at the base of the deck is the Moon, which again, tells you to follow your intuition and it will guide you forward. When the time is right you will know exactly what to do.

      Good luck!
