If anybody is scrying or doing cartomancy from the previous thread, I have a question. I'm not sure if the future and past can be answered within one pass glance, or if it can be answered at all for a question like this. I'll just ask it anyways.
I lost my father at a young age, not to death, but to horrible addiction and abuse that led to my mother and I leaving to find sanctuary of some sort.
My question is: Is he alright? Did he get better? Is he dead? I don't know if location is a factor, and I don't think I'd ever want to see him again, but I don't wish harm on anyone, it's just a curious open end to my life. In one answer hopefully I just want a small piece of closure for what may be...
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
23 / Male / Scorpio
It seems like something's brought me and this other person together for some higher purpose.
The material obstacles presenting themselves... How is that going to work out and how does it relate to my relationship with this person?
I like a thick deck with a lot of girth.
>sorry couldn't resist...
Greetings from the enlightened one. I'm doing readings.
In 2012 my GF killed herself. Lately I miss her very much. Is she doing OK in the afterlife?
Love and money readings
If not, just a general is fine.
Am I just being retarded and letting my past experiences ruin my current situation? or are the feelings and emotions I'm having warranted? Things that have happened in my life have me so scared and sensitive to normal and stupid things and I dislike it so much. I want everything to work out good and in a positive way, but this is the second time it's happened and I'm not too sure what to do or how to feel because I always feel like I'm in the wrong, and when I don't it's only for a split second.
Could you do this and/or a general reading?
I would appreciate either honestly.
Can't decide between bridge and domino sized cards.
Too hard to set up shop irl these days. The clientele may be there but you have to have some serious reputation to get anywhere and most areas can't support more than one or two. Never tried online, just don't like skype. Crazy good money if you can break through, a total shitshow if you're under one of the glorified call centers.
I have done paid readings, not sure how much help I can be though.
Thanks! There is a sign downtown for palm readings and stuff and it has been here forever, along with one on the highway. Always thought it would be neat to do this sort of thing for a living, offering life guidance along with tarot readings.
I was doing them for friends of friends and It's really hit or miss. You have good clients, regulars you like, but then you have everyone else and they will wear on you like you wore on yourself back in the beginning of your path.
I'm not much for money, but there is none in it for you. You can do well, but you can and do have weeks where there are no clients. Operating costs are obviously low, but eating and shitposting are my top priorities and bad times will eat into those.
I think the worst thing about it is always being on the clock. 24/7 professionalism can be dreary. People expect a certain personality, a certain tone and you have to deliver or they get all butthurt. The kind of people who go have their fortune told as opposed to doing it themselves tend to have absolutely no sense of humor and massive insecurity. Being even the least bit jovial can be dangerous. You get the crazy bitch triad of personality disorders and heaps of autism coming in and they are incapable of making light of anything.
Not that anon, but I've done readings for family with mixed results.
The first one was my brother, and he said I was on-point. My father was very appreciative and took my advice into consideration. My mother insisted I was completely off, even though she confirmed absolutely everything I said was true the very next day. I read again for my brother, and it hit a little close to home, so he just said “fuck you” a few times when I told him that the girl he likes doesn't want to date him because he's kind of a loser.
So ya, same thing; no sense of humor or ability to accept criticism.
I am. I've been looking for a deck that meets at least half this list of things I want out of it for a long time but haven't even come close.
I want ass basic trumps without all the symbolic cruft, but still capturing a broad swath of the archetype. I want that feeling like they barely fit in the card like the vieville marseille or hanafuda cards. I want it to fit in my hand. What I really want is something outwardly exoteric and more immediately psychological in nature.
I'm still at a loss on a lot of cards, but I'm not doing scenic pips because I have no use for them, so that frees up a lot of time and effort.
The biggest problem has been deciding what is cruft and what isn't. Mountains are pretty universal, flowers not so much. I'm not the greatest repository of esoterica, but it's come to be that the things I know and know are the things I don't want or need.
My main goal is to have a marseilles for the modern era. I've been playing with new exoterica for all the personification cards that reek of Reformation era thought. All the Justice, State and Liberty board-tan level metaphors are grody and need some refreshment.
what want is interesting, and hard to accomplish indeed.
Well,i have never make a deck although i have been thinking about it. I just want to get better and know more before being more serious on the project.
That said, i have give it thought or two and i think is better to aim for a more personal deck and not something more ''universal''. For what you say i think you are aiming for the later.
I prefer a more personal approach because for me, the act of reading itself is pretty personal, Symbols might have an established meaning but the reader often give it its own twicks when performing the reading.
Hence why some books can (and often do) have different interpretations to the same cards. Symbols and expressions might mean different things to different people.
Thats just an opinion tough, as i said i still have a lot to learn.
Good luck with your deck!
It's coming out extremely personalized. The whole reason I'm doing it is because I don't like or need all the symbols everywhere so I'm going back to basics and putting my own shit in. It's mostly been about figuring out how to sneak in more tasteful titties and man junk.
Three -relationship- readings up for grabs~
> name/alias of you and partner
> gender of you and partner
I feel like my life is dying. Everything feels so different now and I think its because ive lost something. I feel like im losing emotional things like they are dissapearing. I feel like im dying but not physically. I dont know. It doesnt feel good Why does my life feel like its dying.
> Situation: The World (R)
> You: King of Swords, Queen of Cups (R), Knight of Pentacles
> Him: Strength, Knight of Swords, Queen of Pentacles
> Advice: Queen of Wands
I see the beginning of something new, with the reversed World indicating a difficult start. Hmm.. you're trying to find security in him, however, your emotions are quite a mess; perhaps caused by previous relationships. You appear as the Knight of Pentacles to him; so warm and vibrant. Seems to me that he's your knight in shining armor, isn't he? Sitting on his throne, however; not too fervent in his approaches, maybe a little bit cold. I'd say there's a good balance here; both of you are being yourselves, and I can definitely see this going somewhere good. But ask yourself: "What results do you hope to achieve by following this path?", i.e. what do you want out of this?
Have a query?
I'll be back later.
> Situation: Strength
> You: Queen of Cups (R), 2 of Wands (R), 2 of Cups
> Him: The Hanged Man, The Empress, 10 of Swords (R)
> Advice: Judgement
Hmm.. what a weird situation; full of Strength, however both of you not going anywhere. Perhaps you're misunderstanding the way he thinks, and your emotions are all over the place. This isn't good, m8. You're still very much in love and you're not afraid to show it. He has no idea what to make of this, and is being The Empress in his emotions; sitting on his throne and so cold, sometimes inviting. He may act as though he's confused, however, I don't think this is the case; he just has no idea what he really wants. The advice here would be to have a talk with him and see what comes out of this; make sure the both of you head in clear-headed. You need some clarity in this situation, friend.
okay 21, female, aries
I feel like i keep my life in a standstill because i'm looking for someone to share the growth of my life with like i don't want to start my life until i meet someone wo will be there along the journey? will i ever stop feeling this way because i feel like im tied down by something that i don't even know has control over me? well i am aware of it i just don't know how to overcome it i suppose
> He may act as though he's confused, however, I don't think this is the case; he just has no idea what he really wants.
I meant hurt**, and has no idea what he wants. Sorry.
yeah it's weird, I had a very long talk with him and he told me that he has feelings for me but is trying to not think about them and told me not suffer since I can't be with him. My bet is to let time sort it out will I try to show him that I can be a better person and be with him as a very good friend, he's very protective of me. Thank you so much I needed a new point of view for this.
Woah do you think its because of aries?
Can you further explain the way you feel?
i just feel like the quality of my life and everything i notice and internalize about humanity and culture/communication development has made me feel like an outsider in my own reality i feel like someone in a barren dessert mentally
I feel like im running out of time but at the same time I feel like something new is coming. But what do you mean by outside in your own reality?
> Situation: 4 of Pentacles
> You: 5 of Pentacles, Queen of Swords, The Hermit (R)
> Him: The Magician (R), Ace of Pentacles (R), 5 of Cups
> Advice: The Chariot
I'd say the two of you are in a pretty good situation now. You're in love, and courageous in your approach; however you seem to be pretty cold and isolated towards him. Maybe this has something to do with the fact that he doesn't want a fresh start or work things out with you, which seems to be the case here as the cards are saying. He's doing some reflection and thinking right now, and I think you should leave him alone to do that. The advice here would be to move forward together, mutually; instead of either one trying to take charge of the relationship, both of you should try to make it work at the same time. Overall, yes, I can see this relationship working - I think there's a good outcome so long as you follow the advice.
Could I get a general reading please?
Can you give me a general reading please?
I need desperately a love reading oh fortune tellers.
Currently on leave from work and considering going back to school to go into a different career field. Lately I've been restless. Not only do I have more time on my hands, but I keep thinking about a traumatic period in my life that happened two years ago. I want to move on. What's in the cards?
how is everyone tonight? i'll be doing readings for the next 4 hours i guess
23 is a number that plays a huge role in my life and family (pretty much everyone in my family/relatives are either born on the 23rd or die on the 23rd)
Is my gf loyal and trustworthy?
If that was a yea to needing info, I'm 18, male, and a leo.
I'll make exception for you.
You're disconnected from your inner archetype. At one point in your life (probably after emotional trauma) you sacrificed emotions and passions for rationality and judgement. Therefore your masculinity suffers from it, you tend to be either unassertive and submerged into over-thinking from every different aspect or either blindly following hedonistic impulses. It's dangerous for other person to form a relationship with you, there's a dancing flame sensation. Either they surrender your intense passion or you will burn them (figuratively talking) with amplified emotions. The Future is bound to repeat itself if you wont strike a balance between repressed emotions and rationality. However if you'll seek the things you've always wanted there might be another way. Now everything depends how deeply you want to change current situation, it's the only way for you gather hidden passion for life.
Now i'll return from where i came.
I would like a reading please.
I wish to know if I'm on the right path. I feel doubt, but I know my battle is to have faith. I just want an outside source to regain confidence in myself.
>i don't get what you mean by a pic that makes sense, but i hope this will do.
What will my life be like 5 years?
If that's hard to do, then just a general would be okay.
your path - the tower, 2 wands,
your path in itself is right, but it is not easy by all means. your struggle, your doubt, it will be cleaned pretty soon when divine wisdom will push through the blockage.
you just need to persevere, but i understand that it feels quite hard.
That makes sense. I know my path will be tough, but it will be worth it. My energy haa also been feeling blocked lately. I think the divine wisdom refers to the soul star chakra which would be my next one to master after crown.
So in all, thanks for the reading my man :)
i've been going through some crazy emotional/spiritual changes recently, could use a check up
I don't know what you meant by a pic that makes sense. This makes me laugh and kind of fits me feels
lovers, temperance, page of swords
quite positive, you will most probably be in love, leading a comfortable life which others might think to be average, but you knowingly chose it because you like it. balanced, and rounded.
Should I even care or bother anymore?
Ahh, thanks! This reading makes me happy, considering how much I fret over the possibility of me ending up a wage slave in some crummy section 8 apartment.
Thanks a bunch, have a nice day.
8 cups, 2 wands, 2 cups
cards show that when you feel down, there are options that you can turn to, and you sometimes do. learn from the downs, everything is a lesson.
you will to stand alone and strong, maybe ego or maybe just ambition, you will learn that your perfection comes from your other. but this particular lesson will be quite pleasurable.
8 cups, star, 3 cups
the cards show that your past, inrelation to the query, is dark. but you turned back from it, and this new path leads to the star; your inner self telling you that which is the truth - your calling. you see this through and eventually find true liberation.
but i don't think you have experienced your star yet, or have you?
I'd like to go back to school, but I don't have enough money, and I have to help my parents financially, as they're deeply in debt. Is there any way to make this happen, or am I screwed?
How will my career be this year?
quite exciting, passionate and all round excellent. or at least you will think so.
10 wands, page of swords, 5 cups
>make this happen, or am I screwed?
sorry but the cards lean a lot towards the latter.
you already feel the burden of the ten wands. and it is polishing all the small negatives that you have done. eventually, you will reach a stage in which you will be so starved for resources, might be time or money, that you might just mentally break. 5 cups represents regret. but it does not specify exactly what? might be tension between your parents, monetary, or mental troubles.
sorry and best of luck. this seems like a bad situation to be in altogether. could you get them out using any *ahem* underhanded technique?
Thanks, that's what I figured. It's really unfortunate, but I just don't have the resources, and I never really had a chance. I would have some money to invest, but I had to bail my parents out with all of my savings when they almost lost their house during the crash. I can't just let them suffer, though, they're my parents; you don't stop caring about someone when they're no longer useful to you.
Thanks again, have a good one.
Is there any hope of anyone in my family accepting me, or at least my sibling?
Y, male, 22
Love reading,please. Am I going to meet someone any time soon?
I need to get my mind off of some things, so I'm offering one voice reading. Post a recording of 30 to 40 seconds of yourself speaking naturally: no recitation. Voices tell me things about you, not like normal readings. If you'd like me to look for or focus on anything in particular, let me know; otherwise, I'll just get what I get.
Why did I meet this person? Are they really as bad as I think?
Ok so this is like my 3rd or 4th time browsing /x/, but i want to ask something. I heard from a friend that the stars have moved since the time the zodiacs where first named or something like that i literally don't understand anything, but i want to learn.
So if I'm born on the 11th of February, i'm an aquarius, but what's my real zodiac? Sorry if this is really dumb.
I see the Page of Wands transfor into a laughing skull, amidst a black background that occluded nearly all light, and I see a distant white light: bright but small, and it seems that you can call upon a shimmering star that might lie so far that you might not notice it. You have a hidden talent you've not sufficiently explored, but you can make good use of it if you dare to transform.
A butterfly, quite appropriately seen, now slowly opens its tired wings. 9 of Wands is what I'd think I'd see, but that particular bit is nowhere to be seen: you've not learned sufficiently from the lessons the universe brings. You've had opportunities to let yourself shine, but you've not allowed yourself the time to reflect sufficiently. Some things are a bit too late to change, but reflection is always in range for the one who seeks.
I see putrid green air, and I feel the stare of miasma now. You might think it enow that you're ahead of the curve as you'd draw it yourself, but the curve illusory: you should draw it by stealth.
Signs point to the West. Are you planning on moving or have you already done so? I'd think fitting if you thus progress forth.
I see a light shining through dark stormy clouds, and I hear a bell ringing aloud: something of a shroud still covers you, though it's quite unfitting if you allow it to define you too much. It's just a hunch, but...I see a beaver slowly moving its tail...strange, but I think control over environment will help you prevail.
I see the White Rose of York then. I must wonder, friend, if you're connected in any way. At any rate, an occult order might be worthwhile to explore if fir a certain thirst to sate. That is, of course, if you're not already.
From this point going forth, it gets rather muddy.
Readings? Readings. I will commence with my usual one-card readings, but I may expand depending on the query. Please avoid giving too many general ones; they're a pain to read.
Yeah, i know that but a feeling of longing for something indescribable is always following me. I feel like an old relic in this constantly changing world.
White Rose of York? Like connection with occultism? I guess you're mistaking me, i'm not connected with this stuff in any major way besides occasional read. Thanks for reading, maybe there's a hope for person like me after all.
Excuse my scattered interpretations; I'm trying to work with spreads here. Surprisingly enough, or not, it's far, *far* harder than I expected them to.
>Am I gonna get a job i want.
Well that's going to be a short and a simple one. I actually drew a few additional cards and so far, it seems that it's a very odd yes. The Devil in the center, Queen of Cups on one side and Three of Cups, or Abundance, on another. Yeah, it seems to be a yes to my rather inexperienced eyes. Nothing more to be said here. If you put your emotions and will to finding another job, then you're bound to find it. I mean, if it doesn't work out with this one.
Now that's completely and utterly strange of a draw I got. I'm trying to mess around a little bit more with the cards I get, setting up miniature spreads and what not, and for you. . . I drew the Hermit, surrounded by The Star and Six of Wands, or Victory. That seems to lead to the Hierophant and in turn, the Hanged Man.
Yes. I could say that it's a yes. But not for anywhere close to short-term. There's not going to be too much change, but at the same time it's not going to get any worse from what I understand.
Hey bv, if you are still here, I'd just like to ask for future ref if i catch you doing reads, if the voice recorded is in different language than english is it ok? Could do both or either, just asking what would you prefer.
If you don't enjoy the things that you really used to, then most people would say that you have depression, for it's one of the most common signs.
Alright, now bear with me. This is something completely experimental here.
>in order, hopes, you as the querent and desires, following with underlying reasons
Seven of Disks, or Failure.
Two of Wands, or Dominion.
Seven of Wands, or Valor.
XIV or Art.
>advice, warning and the eventual outcome
Eight of Swords, or Interference.
II, or Priestess.
XX, or the Aeon.
I'll try to keep this as short and simple without adding too much ramble from my own side. You're right now sitting at a position where you're seemingly resigned, but yet you still hold onto the hope that you'll manage to put all the willpower and energy that you could muster up to get yourself out of this situation. It's either resignation, or simply biding your time. Either of the two. You obviously desire to preserve and hold fast and strong, but the hope is still to push forwards and not just simply sit idle and block all the punches that come from life and it's bullshit. The underlying reason is far too simple and far too fitting: you seek to change yourself. Change the situation. Balance it out, almost, because at the current moment you're simply pushed far too down. Perform some mental, spiritual alchemy, if that makes any sense to you.
The advice is kind of confusing to me, because I'm not certain whether I should suggest to you that you shouldn't sit idle in your mind and think as much as possible. Or you should just stop brooding and go out and do something. Sitting in one place can't help. The warning would actually fit in that case, because the High Priestess and the female archetype it brings up is stillness, silence and internalizing, subconscious. So, I'm going to take a gamble and say; go out and move your ass. Go out and try to do something. Enjoy it. Don't sit in one spot and hope that life will bring that shit to you.
And the eventual card, the Aeon, is a complex and yet simple answer. It's essentially Judgement; you're going to get out of this just fine. Something will change and in turn, make things far better for you. Essentially the death of a phoenix and rebirth of a new one from the ashes of the old.
tl;dr: don't hope that life brings stuff to you. Go do something. Don't sit in one place, both mentally and physically. It's going to go well if you'll do so.
Please tell me I understood your query properly. I was scratching my head a little bit in uncertainty.
Queen of Wands.
That's one hell of a simple card. You're going to have some luck if you will, as long as you go out and put yourself there. Basically, don't sit idle and hope that something happens. It's not going to be good.
Would love one.
Hey, i had to take a test at my physician's office about a week or so ago. Im wondering if everything will be cool when i go there next week on wednesday.
You're going to be my last reading for now.
The Moon for his intentions and The Art for the second part of your reading, and The Star for whether he holds of you any importance.
I'd say this person is rather uncertain for now in regards of his intentions, and it's a high chance you're picking up on this. At least you're uncertain of it all, but I don't think he's going to discard you in any way, shape or form. He doesn't view you in any sort of a negative light, that's for certainty. He may think of you as somewhat of an inspiring person or something at least in high regards.
So don't worry, it doesn't seem to me like he's toying with you all that much. Get another reading if you doubt, or just try to ask more and observe properly with a detached outlook on this. Good luck.
Like I said, go and get another reader for this. Or just, you know.
>just try to ask more and observe properly with a detached outlook on this.
Take my reading with a bag of salt. Always take readings in /div/ with a bag of salt.
You seem to be involved in industrious activity. Change, alternation, instability. Not necessarily bad. A form on pleasant harmony.
I get a sense of materialist and superficiality. Individualism and potential deceit. You seem content, however, in this materialism, this superficiality. Since this is a general reading I cannot go further. But perhaps this represents a feminine figure in your life.
Practicality and somewhat destructive logic brings exaltation and change, release. Unchecked, it may bring wanted or unwanted destruction. You might be tempted to use intellect in order to exert your power upon these currents, but I'm afraid it may prove futile.
You are young and intelligent, but impressionable and manipulable, and your desire for more, your ambition, might be what triggers this chaotic change. The card of The Universe presents itself at the heart of the matter. It is time to decide essential matters, after all, and you might not have a choice but to be swept away by the currents unleashed, paradoxically, by your own choices.
You will probably be focused on happiness and wealth, on finally letting your drives, creative, in a sense, get you where you desire. Your sights are on success.
All in all I'd advice caution as soon as you see things going your way. You are going to wield great power in guiding your destiny wherever you desire, but it is going to be a wild ride, and if you don't keep your cool, you might end up destroying your ship.
/div/ readings just make me feel better though. So that's why you've got tons of my thanks.
Your lack of decision seems to have brought you to a state of dissipation and waste. Anguish, despair and worry loom over your head.
You need not neglect, but persevere. Do not misdirect you energy. In all this reading, I see your endeavors threatened. You slowly slip into greed and unrealistic material desires, culminating in utter defeat, loss, poverty and failure.
Stop desiring and start acting. Set yourself realistic goals and achieve them, step by step. Do not reach for too much before it's realistic to do so, and do not let yourself settle for less than you need. You need to move, now.
Fair enough, I suppose. I'm just drawing a card or two, and if someone gets something good out of it, fair enough.
This shit, this shit right there. It should be added to the OP.
And a whole bunch of no problem.
You said it was your last reading for now. You can reply to this one later.
I've met this guy 6 days ago, Will it work out between us? What do you think I should do? Should I go for it? I like him, but I'm afraid of this feeling.
Indifference might have taken you into a servile position to an energetic person or personality. Your tendency is to adapt, to calmly take things into your terrain, and this may result in violent impulses this time around.
The prince of disks turns into the prince of wands. What is full of energy but dull in their down-to-earth attitude, may become violent, intolerant, perhaps due to prejudice or intolerance. This will pose a challenge you will see through. In the end success. Possibly.
Keeping your strategy intact seems to see you through all the way alive, although I suspect it won't be without some turmoil. You could avoid conflict altogether by taking a more proactive and involved approach. Take a risk least you come across as a coward, see where things take you. Or play it safe, weather the storm, and come out at the other end, apparently untouched.
Dreamy and imaginative, you have come to redemption and a new perspective by the hand of a powerful source of strength and courage.
If you are magically inclined, there is a motivation to yield and change fortune. There might have been a defeat or a loss that nevertheless marks a turn in destiny. Did this prompt you to take action? I have no idea what any of this means, to be honest.
Illumination is coming your way. Divine inspiration as it may, and paradoxically I see the possibility of a loss of faith, challenged by expressiveness and enthusiasm. I get the impression this may signify unwillingness to admit something that is revealed to you.
This is a very weird reading. I'd appreciate any feedback you may have.
Could you list the cards that you got? I would be pretty interested to take a look at it myself, even though my knowledge on tarot and especially on Thoth is quite limited.
I could say that in some ways, yes, I was drawn to a new perspective from both internal and external forces. It was not an easy transformation, but I am slowly getting there. Perhaps not even an intentional transformation from the source, but it was perhaps more of a chain of events that occurred over a considerable amount of time that pushed me to this.
I am not magically inclined, but my interest is definitely there. Fortune in what sense though; luck or money related? Either don't seem to motivate me all too much, and this is something that I've seen a reader or two point out. That it's money. I am very well aware that money can be earned from other sources than such, so I don't consider magic or occult to be a good source of money in the first place.
As for the illumination part... I am not sure what to say myself. I am already one that could some say is a faithless, but yet I retain some sort of a shred of a belief, namely due to the experiences that have been shown to me. In regards of divine, I ... I do not know. I'll keep a metaphorical eye out on this during the span of the next gods know how long.
Thank you for the reading, and here's your feedback in turn.
Still doing readings? I already asked about this but I want another point of view or see what happens.
name is Sacs, 22
There's this person I love and I want to know if I have a possibility with them in the future.
This will be my last reading today, sorry.
You seem to have gone parabolic on this one. Full of unsustainable enthusiasm, uncommitted despite all the excitement. You may come across shallow because of this. And you have landed against a firm wall. Could it be you have come across someone with a very practical perspective, and this clash may give you trouble, initially.
I see some dissipation beyond your control. Perhaps because of this contrast of perspectives, you might get a sense of losing something, of not getting your insatiable needs satiated. You are moved by romanticism, and this new force is all about practicality. It seems to work well with your tendencies, but at the same time it's very different.
I see lots of love, an abandonment to it. This might not be what you need in the end, but it doesn't seem to stop you from pursuing it all the way. Yours seems to be a singular path of romanticism and emotion, even if it's unilateral.
That's it. No decision to make, no caution to take. If I had to make a suggestion, however, it would be to take into account the other party might not share your emotional views, and might respond better to a more practical approach. There is, however, no indication that you even need to consider this.
Oh, whoa! Wasn't expecting you to go in so deep, but thaaaaanks duuuuuuude. Pretty spot on there.
>You are young and intelligent, but impressionable and manipulable, and your desire for more, your ambition, might be what triggers this chaotic change.

Especially this bit. I really appreciate it, a whole bunch! Thanks thanks thanks.
Thanks! I'm sorry but the cards are gone now. I can tell you, however, that I got the Wheel of Fortune as a representation of your motivation. I'm not sure what to make of it.
I got the sense that you are in an unusually strong position of control over the course of your luck.
Regarding illumination, you said it yourself, you don't consider yourself faithful (I don't believe in a god by the way), and yet you have been shown there is something, hence my initial impression of your unconscious unwillingness to admit something that has been "revealed" to you. Perhaps you have a strongly skeptic personality?
If the cards are to be trusted, I'd say there's more motivation coming your way.
Fair enough. Wheel of Fortune, you say? That's something to look at, indeed. I could work something out of that, but it's not entirely related to luck, since what you say after strongly fits. Luck seems to just work in my way, no matter what I go for.
You're correct, I do have a rather strong skeptic personality that has been fighting against all of these experiences that have occurred to me over the span of the past year or so. Trying to brush it all off, rationalize it, etc. You name it. I figured that there is indeed something out there, but I can't really say it fits within the boundaries of our words or our language. We can only describe such things to a very small and rough extent.
More motivation? Wonderful, that's what I exactly may need. I just wonder in what sort of ways it will become apparent. Thanks again for the reading, anon. Appreciated. I would give you a chunk of some of my luck, but sadly, I'm not aware as to how to do it. Words will have to do for now.
So uh, I queried Mr. Sans earlier about something, and he said it'd be good to get another reader's input. So could you,
Give me your take on this question? If that's fine?
I'm a big fucking noob, so whatever I get told by tarot interpretation websites. People tell me I'm accurate, so I just go with it.
That's pretty disgusting. Not that they are completely wrong, but so much is parroted to the point of being meaningless and the rest are nonsense interpretations of the RWS pips. Really good stuff in there, but you could make things up and be more accurate than most of the dreck.
That's not a dumb question, it is the most important question to ask about astrology!
Here ya go: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sidereal_and_tropical_astrology
If you want more::
Hey, if it works, it works. I'm pretty new at this, so cut me some slack. If it helps someone, then that's what counts.
Just saying not to take much of it as gospel. We all went that way, and it saves a lot of time if you avoid shit sources. Great for getting the general idea though.
Most of it is put together by the same kind of people who do reviews on youtube where they struggle to identify basic astrological symbols in a deck they "totally love and connect with". The only hope I had for the whole thing was when a dude was bullshitting his way though the thoth deck and nailed some extremely obscure crowley symbolism he clearly knew nothing about prior.
I guess I"m saying to work on your foundations outside of tarot and come to conclusions from there. It's a crucible for your own knowledge, knowledge you may not know you have.
BTW in the pic, disregard the 'galactic' one. Pretty sure the whole point is to include ophiucus, which is kinda dumb
Hey, they're kinda right though. I wouldn't have been so harsh about it, but yeah...
My advice is find like four or five different lists of all card meanings and make a superlist to reference.
Personally, I typed up all the meanings I agreed with from three booklets that came with decks, and I alternate between that and various websites to get confirmation of my own interpretation, usually when the combination of cards is a weird one.
Unfortunately, its all on a computer without internet access, and all I have is a tablet right now...
When I get my own computer in a week or so, I will transfer the doc and add some stuff from decent websites (it takes some work to figure out which those are IMO) and I could link that in the OP or sticky here I suppose...
Well, its worth pointing out I suppose that this is *after* studying symbolism and doing thousands of readings, and *then* getting two large textbooks on tarot and studying them regularly; >>17228036 is most likely correct that without previous background, meaning lists will be often misleading and even box you in in your interpretations. You need to understand, and agree with, the reasons each card's meanings are chosen by a given source...
I was a bit harsh, but most of the lists are really that bad. Too much navelgazing on Coleman-Smith's hit or miss pip cards and a load of feel good nonsense when it comes to the spooky ones. It's the fruit of turning a parlor trick into deeply personal inner alchemy and back into a fucking parlor trick to get money out of weaker minds.
This. One really only need know the foundation of the cards and have a general overview of the western cannon. More is better, but something is better than nothing and nothing leads you to making things up.
I think all it really comes down to is the writer being able to back up their interpretation or have the obvious kind of wisdom and reputation that they don't have to.
Capricorn if it's relevant.
A love reading please, I know how generic and hated that is for someone like me to ask for a love reading but damn it, I need to know what I'm up against so I'm not being fed more false hope.
I'll be doing some two-card readings today. I don't know how many exactly, but perhaps five at maximum.
What sort of information do you need? If nothing, then I'll just leave my query first and foremost; what are his (let's say H) intentions towards me and does he intend to do something?
can i please have a career reading from you?

As for his intentions, it's a bit blurry at the moment. Time will tell. However, I do feel that whatever they are and whatever actions he takes will be good and may even be something that you and him both share common thoughts about.
>Two Of Pentacles
>Eight Of Cups
Your career is average, but you seem to want more out of it. Make sure to consider all of your options and things that you could possibly do to make it better - even if it involves a bit of a challenge or turning away from something. Find that sweet spot or position that will make you content overall.
Ill do a few tarot reads in a bit; no love readings for today though, sry

Positive vibes definitely seem to be here. Talking to her could spark something. Although, I would not recommend setting your expectations so high so quickly. I feel that she has bit of things to bare behind the scenes that could even be surprising or unexpected. Keep yourself grounded in the present moment and see what happens at that pace.
hi this is me >>17228671

I'm a short blonde. I love to wear cute things, I love pink, and I love japanese "kotakoti" style clothes.
I'm sarcastic but I usually try to be very kind and stay out of people's way.
I guess I just want some general advice please. Thank you.
That's fine. I care about her as it currently stands. I don't want to twist her arm or cause her trouble right now, I just want her to honestly consider me and be open in the future.

Recently I've been dealing with a lot of bad feelings, I've been feeling depressed and alone lately and I'm giving up on love once and for all, I think I'm not going to have an oportunity with a girl, like... never ever again...
Things are not good at all and I belive this is going to be a really bad year. I can't stop feeling bad and negative even though I try to start with a lot of positive energy my days... Is like life is telling me "I'm not made for this world.".
My question is: How is this year going to be for me?
Thank you very much Ash.

Hmm, I see. Try stepping back a bit, sitting down even (?) to see everything at a different perspective -even if just for short, sporadic periods. Be more still, and take into consideration finer, smaller details; as these might be not as small as originally perceived. Rest your heart and the discomfort will fade.
Ok I got 6 cards so it took me a while
[Other readers wondering about what I mean here, I let the 'magic' decide how many get pulled, and what the significators for them will be, before I turn them over]
Your ideal (best) self: Princess of Cups, Prince of Swords
Everyone has a best self, what I mean is the personality belonging to your 'spirit' or 'higher self'
When you are in the right environment and right mood, you 'shine,' aka channel this pure personality. There's that classic psychological diagram where the true self is in the middle surrounded by circles of personality...
Anyway, the combination of the royal male and female shows me your spirit or whatever is really our and strong, though I doubt you really let it shine through much? You have the emotional depth and security of the perfected Princess of Cups and the high intelligence and ability to communicate of the optimised Prince of Swords, hough this one is still a bit flawed due to not exercising / believing in this aspect of yourself enough
This gives you lots of potential; all you have to do is secure the confidence and almost hostile ambition from the two elements you're missing: earth and fire.
Earth says to tell you to work out and go for walks especially in nature, although Earth says those things a lot. Still good advice. Wands says that you have blamed youself too much out of kindness / politeness
Most of the bullshit of the last half a decade or so that you're just now getting clear of is blatantly other people's fault.
When you get mad, get mad at what has made you and other people do dumb stuff. Don't focus on the stuff, and *definitely* don't focus on the people
Potential lover: The Tower, The Stars
Ooooooh my, this one is quite amazing. All I'm gonna say is don't be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone to go socialize or talk to somebody you think is cute. Let go of hesitation, self-doubt, and falseness/masks
3, 6 Wands: Things are looking up. Be proactive.
Cheesy I know but she's it.
Brown hair 5'2", hazel eyes kind of on the chunky side. style is more laid back but downplayed professional at work
I'm all over the map both extremely silly and serious not always with cause. In many ways I'm a kid at heart though I was always super serious as a kid so there is still that aspect.
I'm looking at moving in about 6 months but I need to save up money before then. What are my career prospects? Will I be successful with the move? and will I be moving with the person I am planning on moving with?
Hello there, ash. If you get to me could you give me a reading similar to the first one you did today? I'm kind of in need of some general guidance.
female, tall (5'9), long brown straight hair, green-blue eyes, sweatpants or leggings and what I usually wear, hipster glasses. /soc/ says I'm 7.5/10 attractiveness wise.
stubborn, anti-PC, witty, anxious, introvert, shut in
Character is Yakul from Princess Mononoke
Short, brown hair, hazel eyes, a bit chubby, and likes to wear comfortable clothing, preferably sweaters and things of the sort.
Introvert and artistic, who enjoys nature and spending time with my pets more-so than with people.
>Make it clear what you're asking
Lately, I have been feeling lost and unsure of life. I would love some guidance or clarification as things have been rather unclear to me lately.
That's alright, I'll be around for a long time
appearance: strong features, gangly, looks like death, broad shoulders.
personality: dry humored, blunt, empathetic, expressive.
question: is it worth trying to find the "right" relationship or should i just
party more instead?
(it sounds silly but those are my two options)
Im gonna skip stating the obvious....
Anyway you've got your whole life ahead of you. You are in charge of your destiny. What you put into the universe comes back to you. Don't become one of these dried up old NEETs that frequent this site. Find ur passion in life, do what makes you happy. And happiness will follow.
Catpcha: school bus. Kek
As much as I'd like to agree with you I constantly feel like I'm moving up hill. I never really feel happy. Constantly apathetic, no will, desire. I come here in hopes of finding something, connection, God, I'm not sure anymore. I really just need some guidance, no one tells me who, what or how..
Are you fucking kidding me, kid?
>I am in charge of my own destiny. What I think becomes my reality.
Go find a pen. Write that over and over again until it sinks in. Then make a list of all the negative thoughts you've been drilling into your mind, starting with
> I constantly feel like I'm moving up hill.
>I never really feel happy.
Are you still the same dude?
I totally understand where you're coming from, which I know means jack shit in the real world but it should be of at least some comfort. But honestly 14? Like you haven't even truly hit puberty yet, mate. This is the age girls hit it, boys are still chipmunks. You've only just started getting the jist of what identity is and it's stressful, especially if you're a social outcast, because it feels like you have nowhere to turn to. At your age, I felt the same way. I hated all my friends at school and felt like I need someone to guide me in life. I even tried to end my life because I thought there was no purpose to my life. Truth is, you're strong enough to live this life and learn for yourself. You will eventually meet people. People who will inspire and help you learn. Perseverance is key. Hang in there. Times may seem shit now but I can't stress how young 14 is. I know it seems like you're grown but you're not. Life hasn't even begun yet.
I cannot stress it anymore when I say that you really are in charge of your destiny. What you feel, you attract, remember. Start now, while you are young.
I'd understand if you think I'm an edgy shitposter. I used to watch my older brother use this site all the time, so I followed, I guess. I just wanted to point out that life isn't fair and age doesn't
matter to it. I'm not going to cry to you, because I doubt you care.
I just wanna know what the fuck to do, I have no one and now not a single person cares for me. I'm lost, you tell me to think differently but fucking how? I'm just fucking existing and confused.
All you told me is to mull Over how i feel, not how how to confront my titans, and I have no one else to tell me how. What do I do?
Browse r9k more friend, those guys have it all figured out, learn from them
>you tell me to think differently but fucking how?
You need to stop for a second. And think about everything in this life you are thankful for. What is it that you're grateful for? And don't say nothing because that just proves that you're seeing things the way you want to see them; basically completely dismally. In fact, write it down everything you are grateful for. That'll put things into perspective.
Then tell yourself you deserve to be happy. These feelings are temporary. Puberty is a bitch. But you'll learn through your mistakes and it'll make you the man you will develop into. Tell yourself that you going to find some guidance and get your shit together. Darkness before dawn, my friend.
Start up a hobby, get your angst out. Skateboarding, learn guitar, build bird houses fucking anything, as long as it isn't harming anyone. Trust me, this is key. It'll also help you develop skills for your adult life, and is incredibly therapeutic.
Listen to this guy if you want to become a crusty no life NEET.
I didn't tell you to mull over the list. I told you to write down all your toxic thoughtloops so you could start consciously, mindfully avoiding them. Writing them down solidifies them in your awareness. Writing, not typing.
Once you are aware of your negative thought patterns, you can start overwriting them with more constructive, proactive, positive ones.
I Appreciate that anon. No one ever taught me to how to deal with my emotions, that's why I'm fucking here. In this shit hole, looking for some consolation from a higher being. Or from you guys, in hopes that you know something. I've felt like shit, since the start of the shit show.
Thanks dude, I think I'm gonna try that.
I'm surprised to see I haven't been banned yet, likely gonna happen.
Excellent. You'll be alright, anon.
The book "Prometheus Rising" would help you a lot in this department. There's a pdf free online if you Google for it. Focus on chapters 1-8, skip the exercises for now. Godspeed.
This place is quite deserted, isn't it? I'll do two readings (maybe spare a third depending on time and energy left); pick either a normal query in regards of whatever it is that is troubling you, or pick a mindscape and we'll see what's in your head. Not literally, obviously enough.
For the first I'll need the gender and query. Please avoid generals and love matters unless it's absolutely needed. For the second I simply need your permission to enter.
>Please avoid generals and love matters
Egh, fuck it, nevermind. Let me know if you change your mind and are willing to read for a heartbroken man.
I suppose it's not just a simple love query, but I sincerely wish it could be.
>unless it's absolutely needed.
>for a heartbroken man.
Either way, it seems like it's just us two right now, so I can definitely go ahead and give ya a read. I only want to avoid doing love queries that go along the lines of ''what does he think of me'' or ''does he like me'' or some other shit like that. Tarot is there for a reason, damn it.
So, spill what's left in your broken heart, what is it that you want to have read?
Hey Io, if you'd be up to it, I've been trough quite some change since the first time you've done a mindscape on me, a few months.
If you have any time or energy left could you scry me? I give you permission.
Thank you for still comming around. Your reads are always one of my faves.
Ask something else, anon. And do keep in mind; the permission is only for mindscapes. Normal readings on future or feelings or present or etc, that's normal stuff.
I'll go ahead and do yours, since the heartbroken anon isn't exactly being too talky and the second one is probably thinking up of something else.
An... omelet? Just as I started focusing harder, I felt like someone was pouring mass amounts of flour from above. It wasn't exactly something that I enjoy, so I tried to move myself out of the way and see just what exactly I got myself into.
Flying off a little bit away from this entire scene and finding a more comfortable position that's not exactly too flour-y, I see someone making an omelet on a pan. The room besides that was really blurry and really empty. But for some reason, they were simply pouring flour and shaping it in a form of a mountain on top of the egg. In the pan. This person was seemingly content with whatever they were doing, even though after appreciating the work they have done, they go around and mess it all up, spreading flour all over the place again.
This was definitely something wrong going on. They were not exactly making food for the sake of eating food, or at least they did not realize that what they were doing isn't exactly what they should. Then I see... rubies? Yes. This was the point where I realized that this person was obviously putting things and just focusing on the wrong things here. He's putting effort, but not in a way that would really assist him in any way.
He kept up with this, flailing about with the pan, spilling flour and oil all over the place until the entire thing fell down on the ground. The expression signified dismay, but nothing that seemed to click too much with him. It was this kind of an... ''awwh.'' It felt like he was playing with a toy, and now that it's broke he's just going to move on with the next thing.
I have no idea besides that. I ended up focusing out after the entire mess was fine and done. I tried to make sense of it at the last paragraph, but yeah, what I think about this is pretty much; what the fuck are you doing, stop putting the wrong things into something that doesn't require it. If you're doing something for one purpose, then make sure you're not adding more things to it that will ruin it.
anon pls staph
it's nothing good
If the other two won't respond, then I'll get to your reading. I'm surprised people still remember me, even though I'm still here in other ways.
Hi lo, I remember you as well. Glad you're here. If you have time between scrying for people, would you mind doing a quick reading for me?
I want to know if there is any significance to the guy I met and went on one date with. Is he worth pursuing? What is he about? What is our potential?
Ah, well. If you ever need permission from me, just letting you know that you've got it.
I want to know, will I ever manage to make something of myself? I want my current hobby to lead into a career, but I'm scared I'm going to become a good-for-nothing wannabe.
Is that an okay question? I'm sorry if I'm asking things that would be a pain in the neck to read...
You were born into a stable family, weren't you?
Didn't say you can't have problems if you have a good family. I was implying that if you cry from the vanilla things people ask here, you're probably a bit sheltered. This is coming from someone who's very empathetic himself.
Sorry that had to happen to you. Must've been indescribably rough to watch the one who raised you disappear at such a young age.
You're going to get a mindscape.
I saw a very small, yellow and fluffy chick. It was making all the cute and all the fluffy sounds a little chick makes, ditzing about the place. It notices me and proceeds to hop away towards a... house?
This is the part where the entire setting is shown to me. I see a very comfortable looking house ahead of me; not too big, but not too small. Out of wood. Two windows in the front. A door. It's fenced. I see a whole load of chicks in the front garden, so out of curiosity I start approaching but at the same time keeping an eye out on any sort of changes.
What perturbed me was the sky. The air itself was fine, carrying this fine, misty tone to it, and the horizon up ahead seemed to have this red tinge to it, but looking higher up things were far different. Blackness. I cannot say whether it was approaching or spreading or growing smaller, but at the same time it stood out so damnably much... Ignoring that, I enter through the gate and there, things got far worse on the perturbed scale.
The chicks were jumping about and squeaking (?) this strange stone statue of a woman. It was very vague in details, but they were still... hopping about. It's like they thought the statue was their mother of sorts, the mother hen. Then, I saw the dead bodies of the chicks. Who takes care of them? It's like they expect food from this statue, but they don't get anything.
With a shrug, I enter the house. It was seemingly comfortable enough, but when I walked into the nearby rooms, the kitchen, some other rooms. It's all dusty. Empty. Nothing. The main corridor was bright with a red carpet, inviting, but yet there was... this.
I walk up the stairs and make my way to the main sleeping room and what do I see the first moment I enter? A dirty, old skeleton just laying on the ground, leaning on the bed. Nothing besides that. Still having this empty, dusty tinge to it.
I walk outside with a very disturbed uncertainty. This house was seemingly nice, but yet when I paid more and more details to it, the more wrong things I saw. The more... abandoned. Untouched. Something seemed to take care of it, but yet only took care of the appearances. Nothing was touched in the parts where it would be truly necessary for a living.
I slash to look at the more... other parts of the mindscape, and I find myself in quite a dilemma. I stood in a dark corridor, with a light in one of my hands. I see someone ahead of me with a dark cloak, just far far away. I only could see them due to the fact that they had a light themselves. I look behind; I see the same thing. I tried catching up with one of these people, but they didn't really get anywhere close to me. Everything was seemingly walking away from me, no matter how much I tried to catch up with them.
Eventually, another slash. And this is where I got utterly confused. I try to peer more into the subconscious parts of the mind, and this is where I saw... nothing. Too much fog. Too much dark fog. There's nothing to see there.
What I would suggest straight up is trying to sort through your mind as much as possible. At least don't let things bottle up, if entirely a possibility.
I don't think I'll do this one, even though the satanic trips really tempt me by quite a bit. Sorry.
I'll do yours straight after, and I may just make yours the last one.
Nope and nope. Sorry 'bout that, fellas.
Good morning to you, Discord! How are you doing?
Bleep bloop, bleep bloop.
No idea, to be honest. I try not to do too many readings, simply because it's hella draining and I'm at the moment where I cannot afford to put too much strain on myself in that particular regard. Tarot is fine, but scrying is a no-no. Unless someone really wants one and I know them personally.
I understand you need to "quote" a reader for a reading but I'll just leave this if somebody wants to help out.
Thank you guys:

Are you sure it's okay? My question is just something I asked out of selfish fretting, I don't want you to get hurt because of me...
Wow, thank you very much, this was entirely different from the last time, but I do get what you're saying.
Last time you said it was in a forest, some emerald type of building and some king of sorts died when you were there. Now it's a house with chicks. But still abandoned inside. I suppose I have to work more to change the insides rather than the outter view.
Thank you very much again.
Well, I can try to catch you some other time.
IF that's not a bothersome, some months ago you gave me a reading 'going back to a woman for healing' do you remember anything about the nun ? If you remember this particular reading at all.
I will read your air-query. Would you prefer tarot or scrying?
I do these every once in a while; the reason why I don't post too much nowadays like this.
Sorry about that. I got distracted with /pol/ stuff; here's your reading.
Someone running on top of a dark lake. They were running slowly, in slow-motion, on top of this reflective lake. They had no direction, for there was nothing to run to. It was just this starry sky above, and the reflective surface of the lake. It looked incredibly dream-like, truth be told.
There was a ship sailing in the distance, a cruiser ship of sorts. Filled with people. Bright lights. It was seemingly moving at normal speed, not slow-motion as the person who was running naked on the lake. He tries to focus on it, but the slow-motion thing does not help him in the slightest. He looks down and upon the reflection of himself, and the more he walks, the further his reflection walks away from him. It seems that he, himself, was stuck in this strange state, and everything else was moving fast around him.
At some point, he simply... freezes. Everything turns solid. He cannot move. He cannot see anything moving. Stillness. Inertia. Nothing. There is but a voice to be heard, ''will and determination''. And eventually, a chant of ''move''. Soon enough, everything snaps and the man falls into the lake, free from this curse of inability to move.
He was able to swim up to the surface and immediately, without thought, he started swimming towards the boat up ahead. Somebody in there noticed him, and gave him a hand to get up to the place. The last, vague flashes were of him huddled up in a corner, with a blanket, holding a cup of cocoa in his hands. And new opportunities ahead, in form of a new, bustling town.
I think you're going to be alright, man.
Ah, I remember you. I forgot to mention, it seems, that the house was indeed in a forest. But it was not und... actually, you know, the darkness would make some sense then. Change the insides, yeah, not the exterior stuff. Good luck.
Yes, I remember that. What's up with it?
Ah, so you didn't receive them yet? I hope they will come up soon. I'm still here, in other shapes and forms, either under anon or whatever. I just avoid doing scrying, is all.
Oh, and I'm alright. I think I'm alright, but... naw, you know, I'm not really alright. But I'll get there. Good to see that you're doing well at least!
Oh, wow, thanks! This reading gives my heart a warm feeling, I really appreciate it. I surely hope everything will go well.
Have a nice day, and don't overdo it.
Not yet :( lol. The artist is doing orders/ pre orders on their 3rd edition release but also works full time so the cards are only sent out once a week. I'm so excited!! If you lurk and see me offering reads and want one, just let me know. I might only be offering for fellow readers at first so just mention being a reader if you are with an anon title.
My own was broken by someone else, but later on maybe I did it to someone close to me, but I still question their intentions and I can't figure out if they're really who I'd like to believe they say they are, if that makes sense.
>Forest and the Star
This year will end with you learning to trust your intuition, finding hope. It will be a bit of an adventure getting there. Consider the wildfire a cleansing one: hitting rock bottom is a chance to ground yourself and kick off with renewed vigor.
>Jellyfish and the Seven of Swords
Trust your intuition!! It is not that you weren't made for Planet Earth, it's that you weren't made for the place you're trying to fit in. What are the weirdest wildest things you want to do? Why do you want to do them? What is within your grasp, that fulfills the same urge?
>forked river and Temperance
I pulled Temperance after the scry, since that method worked so well for the last bit. You shouldn't think of intimacy (so integral to mental, emotional, and physical health!) in such extremes. It is a wonderful thing to accept and welcome a time of willful celibacy, to seek mindfulness and learn more about yourself rather than seeking outside attention, but to curse yourself to never loving or being loved again? That's not a good choice, my friend. Let the Star be your guide, become the star, embody your ideals, and you will manifest your inspirations. There's hope yet, friend.
Have one from an idiot going through the same shit.
I see an alien-ish figure, smiling at me, then getting shot in the chest by a stone arrow. Focusing on this gave me the vision of the rune Mannaz appearing to be reversed; speaking of your instability, fears, and the lack of structure and foundations in your life. I see the rune being covered in a hailstorm and some snow, almost reminding me of the rune Hagalaz and Isa; both representing extreme cycles and change. Then comes the vision of a snowman being dragged away by the winds; unknowing where he's going. I tried to follow, but was stopped in my tracks by the winds, and dragged back to where I came from; back to square one. I suddenly find myself in the woods, some forest with dead trees all around and an figure looking at me; wanting to lunge at me. I took a step back, and was suddenly in the darkness. Darkness, all around, with nothing, except a tiny light at the far end. I tried reaching it, but couldn't. Maybe you can.

You've had some manner of success in your recent past, however, that changed and turned into shit. There's some hint of a relationship gone wrong here, perhaps your heart was broken by a lass you didn't expect. A cycle that ended, and a new one begins. You're uncertain, and your emotions fluctuate between two extreme ends; happy or extremely depressed. This isn't going to end well for you if you continue down this path. You seek Temperance; you want to heal this wound and be serene in your thoughts and emotions; however, you have some troubles with this due to shit happening to you all of a sudden; unforeseen events or circumstances. This seems to be caused by your lack of observation and being very unintuitive to the things and happenings around you; so you should be more observant. You suck at planning for things, mate; this is why everything is happening - due to the lack of foresight when you set out to do some things. This is also why you should trust your intuition in some matters; they already know what you want. You're not headed anywhere good; tons of setbacks waiting for you, -unless- you change this: start looking forward, think long-term, follow your heart/intuition instead of focusing on shit that doesn't matter. Your overall well-being is of utmost importance right here, so have that shit in order. Start accumulating what you think is important; set your health, house, and wealth in order. You -will- have a good year if you -want- it to be a good year, but of course, there are things you have to change and choices you have to make. There is light at the end, but you must work towards it.
First of all. Thank you a lot. That was surprising and pretty accuarate in a good number of things.
You are both right, I barely trust my intuition since I always try to follow logic. And that does change my planning from time to time since I always try to adapt to everything wich makes me suck at planing since I can remember...Sorry if my writting doesn't make much sense but I'm confused and kinda spooked in a way appart from you two actually pulling same cards.
I... understand when you talk about the "overall well being" being the most important thing. I usually try to be serene and not to be "polarized" about my happyness and sadness all the time, but... life usually makes me go both sides everytime and that tires me a lot and "fucks my everything" at some points.
>About the "heart broken" thing
Well, that's interesting, there was this girl at the end of last year that I kinda liked, she usually spoke to me and I tought she might like me but... I'm so negative I didn't do anything, I can't understand why would somebody like me... And well, she simply lost interest in me and she doesn't speak with me anymore or anything... That kinda... made me sad because I felt she was just toying with me or something. I ended up confused with all that situation.
Since December 2015 I've been feeling shit, I'm 22 and In my 3rd University year and even though I work hard and I study a lot hours and hours in a daily basis I'm not doing well in my exams and that is making me feel frustrated. Wich is okay and I can deal with it fighting again and trying my best again. But... I'm reaching a point in wich I just don't feel "Happy" anymore and that makes my work worthless, it becomes harder and harder to deal with my obligations and that's just pissing me off. I'm kinda pissed off with myself I guess...
I see you two focus on two main things: Intuition. Balance. Being well. Maybe that's the way to reach "that light" you speak about.
Well, I hope I made you feel better (I'm >>17232005).
I probably shouldn't say this because some people will figure out who I am. I tried to kill myself yesterday. I don't know if I should feel lucky; the cut missed my radial artery and I was able to stop the bleeding and patch it up in time, or I'd be dead by now.
It's fine to hit a low, but make sure you bounce back. I'm positive I will myself, but it's hard and I'm trying. I hope you won't end up like me, ever.
> I can't understand why would somebody like me
Please don't do that. You deserve every bit of love, even if you don't feel or appreciate it; you deserve it.
> I work hard and I study a lot hours and hours in a daily basis I'm not doing well in my exams and that is making me feel frustrated.
It's fine to be average, mate. Not everyone is cut out to be a straight As student; this is just a phase in your life. When you get out into the working world, grades won't matter as much.
> But... I'm reaching a point in wich I just don't feel "Happy" anymore and that makes my work worthless, it becomes harder and harder to deal with my obligations and that's just pissing me off. I'm kinda pissed off with myself I guess...
I am, too. As I've said, it's fine to feel this way, but unhealthy to carry on; find some fulfillment in life. Start with what you like about yourself; write down what you dislike and trim them away.
Yeah - intuition, balance, and your well-being. Take care of them : >
Loving myself isn't a bandaid to financial burden and stress.
Loving myself isn't going to make social disconnect and neglect feel any better.
Loving myself won't find my wallet that was lost.
Next you might suggest I take actions in those areas to improve. In which case I would reply that I am and I have and all I can do now is wait.
It does not change how shitty it feels.
Worrying that the person I'm supporting will never make it and I'll fall down with them and not be able to ever get out of this hole.
Watching my friends do things with others but not reach out to me for the same things. Especially my best friend even though he'll get upset when I hit him up spontaneously and lament I should have done it sooner but when I do he's flaky anyways.
Or the guy that I really like just being one sided.
Or how about being broke and not being able to comfortably afford to do what I'd like to do today without the guilt of spending money so instead I'm at home in bed trying not to cry.
I'm trying and I want some good results to come into my life from my efforts instead of this stasis of patience.
Good morning /x/. I'll be doing readings until 5PM today.
>I tried to kill myself yesterday
I'm sorry but I can't be like... "oh you shouldn't",or "you have a lot to live for" and that kind of stuff because I've kinda been in that point too. And whatever I tell you won't help as much as I wished because I know that in those situation the pain is really subjective even though in general It's really painful for us all. Your mind gets so negative and confused and your body and your soul become so powerless against what surrounds us, It kinda feels... Unfair, doesn't it? It's frustraiting for sure...
Think about it like this. You still here and you helped me a lot today. I know is too soon but you and the other anon gave me some hope, actually something in my mind is changing slowly right now, it's strange but I can feel it somehow... And It's amazing that I got to speak with you in a day like this. I wasn't even supposed to be in /x/ today. It's, kinda weird you know, coincidences like this happen for some sort of reason, but I belive there's more behind that.
I belive in destiny, and I belive we're all connected somehow (even more in these global times) however it's never been fair that somebody decides when to bring us to life, so I think it's fair that we have the option of when to leave life. But, I kinda belive we all have some sort of mission. Even though we can live our whole lifes without noticing we actually fulfilled that mission. Maybe we are just not seeing our "big picture", you know?
I like your idea of "bouncing back" and I'm going to belive in that from now on. You gave me a lot to think about, and a lot of positive things to reflect about. New 3 pilars to stand for and a lot to fight with a renovated underdog spirit.
Thank you very much buddy and good luck, I sincerely hope you find what makes you live a long happy life. :)
Alright. Well, since I feel that including information would create a bias, I won't.
All I would like to know, is whether I should stay with him or not. It's been 3 years and I'm not where I thought I would be by now, and it seems like everything is at a standstill, like I'm waiting for something. Perhaps he's a part of that...
I sense that the people around you sort of move in their own pace, but you're just a more passive person, so you can't really get into their flow. The suggestion is to seek those that flow the same speed as you do.
You're basically like oh you got a broken bone? Here's a small bandaid of self love to heal that broken bone. Nah dawg you don't need surgery. It's okay that self love bandaid is all you need in life to survive and get by.
I know you're trying to help but this isn't some superficial situation created by self hate. Loving yourself isn't a cure all remedy.
Maybe just try and think how deep it actually might be.
I appreciate that you want to help me and others and you should keep doing that, but maybe keep in mind that different situations may need other remedies.
Well... I'm here if you wanna talk about it
I'm going through similar things myself. In fact, that's why I give readings. It's something good (hopefully) I can do that staves away the feeling of a lack of self worth.
Oddly though, he's the one that's standing still when I want to move forward. It's not what I usually would do, but it's what I want this time. Or it's what I thought I wanted. I hate where I'm at, physically, mentally, you name it. I thought that by being with him I could break free and live the life I want to live, and it seemed like he was on board with that idea, but now it seems like he just wants everything to remain the way they are. It's frustrating.
Obstacles: 5 of Pentacles
"..greed will lead to loss, anxiety will lead to error, possessiveness will lead to solitude. By focusing on the material, you lose sight of your spiritual development. You may be rich for a while but all will be lost if you learn nothing.
On a psychological level, the Five of Pentacles may indicate difficulty with your relationship to money and material things. If money becomes the primary motivating force in life and the gauge by which you judge your worth, the lack of it may produce anxiety and a sense of being excluded from the good things money can provide."
Focusing too much on materialism will lead to financial insecurity and a lack of spiritual understanding.
Driving force behind why you feel bad:
"The Hierophant is a symbol of the need to conform to rules or fixed situations. His appearance can show that you are dealing with a force that is not innovative, free-spirited or individual but is instead fixated on the ‘way we have always done things around here’. Groups can be enriching or stifling depending on circumstances. Sometimes we need to follow a program or embrace tradition, while at other times we need to trust ourselves."
You are expected to conform to an institution, a group of people or the way things should be and it doesn't make you happy. You feel bad because you are not following your heart.
Their intentions: Knight of Cups
"This is a very, very positive card to get when you are asking about love. If you are single, this card often indicates that someone is about to "sweep you off your feet." If you are in a relationship, the Knight can indicate final commitments/marriage. At the least, in the context of love, this card means positive messages, things that you would like to hear. Be open to exploration of your feelings."
Their intention is love and the knight of cups signifies that it is genuine/pure.
If people don't want to change, they won't. If he was going to he would have taken initiative. He's too self absorbed and not worth investing your time in. I see a stagnancy, contribute to your future. Quit having idle thoughts of metal and be like water
I'm seeing a shift in the way you study will aid you. Try the pomo door technique, if you can try studying to the sound of a metronome. Try unconventional study methods and you will succeed. Make sure to get some exercise, meditation and lay of the caffeine, it negatively impacts the short term memory although it helps with focus.
Should you stay with him: 6 of cups
"The children are not dressed to interact as lovers or business partners, down to the goofy red cowl that the boy is wearing. The suit of Cups represents emotions in the Tarot and to fill up a cup with dirt and plant life is not what emotions are to be used for. But that is what childhood is for – to not have to be an adult with emotional responses and commitments based on knowing the difference between right and wrong. The children hold onto love (represented by the cup) but have no idea that the flowers will not be there forever and that they will have to learn how to fill the cups they encounter in life with love and emotion."
Nostalgia is genuine but you should learn to differentiate between the past and what is going on with your relationship today. If he does not make you happy and refuses to put in effort, move from it.
The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks. Yeah, no problem.
That's from a long time ago, isn't it? I don't think I'll be able to remember it; I don't pay heed to appearances that I see in my visions. It just doesn't reflect the actual, real appearances. Sorry 'bout that.
I hope it's actually true and not something that my brain tends to figure out. I just don't know; if it works, it works. No problem, anon-chan, I hope so as well.
I was hoping to have a nice day, but Sundays are cursed for me; if I get a good Sunday in any way, then I consider it a blessing from the divines. So far, it's not been a good one. Far, *far* from it. Oh well...
Awh. I got my Thoth deck a long while ago, and I'm currently learning it, so I suppose I'm quite well content with it. It's good that you're excited~
And no, I think I'll pass on any sort of readings for the time being. For now, they're just going to cause more confusing shit in my head, and it's already a damned mess. Not to insult you or your reading skills, but I'll simply... pass. Thank you for the offer and good luck with readings!
Just give me the damned thing. I'll do yours and fuck off with scrying readings for a long while. I forgot that doing them on Sunday is a bad idea; like I said, Sundays are cursed for me.
I have been feeling rather lost and unsure of life for awhile. I'm seeking some guidance, as my current situation makes everything rather unclear and hard to comprehend. I hope that this is okay.
Just woke up again
>Just give me the damned thing.
If you insist, the issue was always improper communication and misunderstandings that got blown out of proportion. She always thought I was thinking of other things when I was thinking of us. I suppose that's the best way to describe it.
At any rate, I still have hope, even though I know I'm retarded for having it. I'm a romantic and Cupid dun fucked me up good, I guess.
I think I've learned my lessons at this point, but I'm still having trouble letting go. I don't even know how to form a proper query, but I think you'll just know what to tell me.
No worries if you don't get to it; I won't be offended.
