I revisited this spread and it gave me a very unexpected set of cards.
This is a total contrast to almost every reading I have done about me and my ex in the last six weeks. It is also in contrast to the previous reading in this diary, which I just did, which I found very confusing.
If anything, I was hoping for a more negative reading to straighten my head out, as I received an email from him yesterday saying he enjoyed spending time with me, and I have been thinking about it ever since.
1: Me: The Sun. A ray of sunshine! Energy, hope, optimism, happiness, rationality, good times with friends.
2: Him: Two of Wands. Restlessness before change. ‘Wait and see’. Collaboration, the end of the first stage of something. Transition, business partnership, a joint creative endeavour. A new outlook. Take charge. Wait for the answer.
3: How does he see me? Six of Pentacles. Generous with my time. Grants and prizes (this is applicable). Helping others.
4: How does he think of me? Page of Wands. Optimism, leadership, new ideas, exhilaration, passion for things, new friendships or relationships.
5: How does he feel about me? Ace of Cups. A new emotional beginning. Emotional renewal. New feelings. Tender feelings. A new relationship or the revival of an old one.
6: What are my chances? Ace of Wands. New life. New beginnings, innovation, optimism, confidence, enthusiasm. Use the energy at your disposal.
7: What can I do to increase my chances with him? Ten of Swords reversed. The worst is over, move on from the period of hurt and sadness. Improvement lies ahead.
8: Outcome/advice: Knight of Wands. Sudden changes. Approach sensibly, don’t be rash. Get professional advice and follow your head rather than your heart.
As I was shuffling for this reading, The Star also popped out.
This reading is overwhelmingly positive and I have not had this kind of reading about my ex before. I did get a reading showing the Two of Cups for us, and the Ace of Cups for me, which relates to me and my hanging out and then me getting together with another guy the same evening, before getting an email from my ex saying he missed me. Before that, I had had a Three of Swords the same day my ex first emailed me asking to hang out. So these cards are all emotive for me and I was interested to see one of them pop up again.
I have reasons to be cheerful and good times ahead; I should concentrate on being with my friends.
This is the second time in two days I have had the Two of Wands for him. I think he is thinking ‘What next’ and may be reconsidering his options after a period of change.
He sees me as generous with the time I have devoted to something we are both involved in which is based in money and finances.
He thinks of me as passionate and determined, I think he maybe admires what I have been doing.
The Ace of Cups for his feeling is overwhelmingly positive, so much so that I am a little nervous in interpreting it for what it is. Perhaps he feels I have a new love interest in my life, rather than him feeling he loves me or something like that. (Had this card been reversed I would have thought maybe HE had a new love interest… I am not sure… it is one of the three options though).
My chances seem good. A card showing new beginnings is positive – and there are reasons to be optimistic. I can increase my chances by moving along into a happier stage and not dwelling on the conflict we have been through.
There are sudden changes ahead and I must be careful to act sensibly. Perhaps this card also suggests getting counselling.
It’s a rushed interpretation but I will be thinking a lot more about that Ace of Cups…
