What will my love life be like in September?


5 3 J

5 – Spades we all know, “5 is the body, its health and its stead” ; “The breakup artist” or “The card of breaking free” - a change in lifestyle, a change in jobs, moving to a new location or a trip… surprises or daily routines being interrupted.

3 - Diamonds are fire, energy, intelligence, wit and spring. 3s are “things growing – a gradual growth” ; a slow progress…. but a progress nonetheless. “The Confronter” – delays, disputes, quarrels that demand communication.

J – “knaves are a message, a woman or a youth” – so a youth of darker colouring etc. or a “faithful friend” who has “my best interest at heart. They are helpful, supportive and a helpful person.”

There is nothing there really, at the moment, so I keep having a looksee at what could come out… but September seems pretty bleak. So it’s perhaps a message, a form of communication which confronts me to what I need to break free from. I perhaps get some news which are really in my best interest, regarding my love life. Something that throws me a bit, and interrupts my routine. Since I already have a change in lifestyle, job and I am travelling this week-end, I don’t see how this could be related to my question.

So, bottom line, nothing in September! Maybe some news… maybe a taunt from a young guy I used to work with (I got that actually already)… or maybe another one who keeps messaging me and tries to interrupt my daily routine or his routine of travelling back and forth to my city so that we can perhaps meet. So, overall, nothing conclusive. Nothing to anticipate of prepare for. Good, I haven’t waxed my legs in ages and winter is coming, and I need my warmth

Hmm... a suggestion. How about picking an additional card for each of your 3, in order to get more meat?
Ok, so five of us...I picked 5 cards, one for each... I am not sure what you meant, but that felt like a good little personality snapshot anyway.

Ra 5 "The Renovator" - Ra is in need of a change. She's quite a trouper and I like her, though I don't know her deep down. I always feel there is more to her, but seems there isn't. She's quite earthy, well-established and very homely. But she's in an unhappy marriage. I feel this is her break from all that. She'll be with friends, and will break away from the home life and things...

Re 3 "The Worrier" - definitely this woman! And she's the one I like the least. She's a psychiatrist with a negative energy. Someone who's growth has stopped. She's a kill joy. "Be wary in partnerships" one site says. "third-party interference, a third wheel, meddling..." Yep! That kind of woman.

Ma K "The Provider" - She's the life and soul of the party! A typical Punjabi Sikh, always jolly (they are reputed for that). She's quite loud... but I feel she's sincere. "Good-natured, affectionate and generous.", card-seer says. Definitely!

Li 6 "The Viewer" - yes, very Li... quiet type, introspective. Goes with the flow and very buddy with Re... so they look like they complement each other. One being the beginning of the killjoy and the other one the end. I don't mind her at all, but cannot fathom her. And she doesn't let much on. So yes, a traveller, not much else.

Me Q Hehe... objectively, this is the card for Ara! "Goddess of Love" --- hahahahahaha... I am laughing out loud! Ok, so yes, I will love all my companions on this trip, no matter how much they annoy me! A kindly maternal woman. Family orientated, mother, wife, sister, aunt. Trustworthy. Passionate, romantic, creative, and artistic. Can be overly sensitive." Ah, the last line, my sensitiveness. Yes, I have to protect myself from the bull crap. Definitely.

My allies are Ma and Ra... and I will keep them close. Re and Li can do their own thing and stay out of my hair.

I don't know if this is what you meant, zhadee, but it certainly is a really good insight!!

mercury retrograde -> 22.09.


Testing the 3x5 spread, valid until September, 22nd 2016

7 - . J - . J - .J - . 8
10 - 10 - Q - 8 - .K
J - . .Q - .5 - 10 - 3

4x Jack = high spirits, battles & parties
3x 10 = plans get upset

Worries & doubts - followed by 3 Jacks... not sure how to read them. Are these different messages? Things to deal with? The line ends with gossip. Looks like I'll get lots of informations, and I have to sort them into different categories.

The graveyard, the treasure chest, the nurse, pillow talk, the bank
hmm - now that the worst is over, joy of life returns, the Queen and the King exchange in a lighthearted way.

The bad news, the client, the barn, the clouds, a wish granted
This is me leaving the worried frame of mind behind, turning towards activities, and giving away (the barn is followed by the clouds), or is this the barn that gets build to store all the good things? The last card looks promising. A wish granted.

Not sure if the usual techniques may be applied - mirroring, knighting, corresponding.

retrograde


I forgot to add that I am much interested in your input as well.

5x
Quote:
Work and business. One’s “calling” or destiny. Also conflict, discussion, and debate.
Looks like I'll be dealing mostly with work.

4x
Quote:
Family, friends, love, and lovers. Also emotions and things which are deeply felt.

4x
Quote:
Money, luck, fortune, happiness. Also news, letters, and socializing.
An equal share of emotions and socialising.

2x
Quote:
Tears, suffering, woe. War, fighting, violence. Also change, warning, and doubts/fears.
And not much to irritate me.

Recently, I thought that clubs and diamonds work together like a kite - the diamond gets stabilised by the club, and the club is pulled to a higher level.
The same thing goes for heart and spade - in a figure like this
it looks as if they were reflections, and one always has to take the good with the bad. The spade comes with that handy little base, which supports the entire figure. They are like Yin and Yang.

Now on to the columns:

7 10 J
Doubts and worries come to an end, they make it to the graveyard. But the Jack looks like a bad ending. There is no peace.

J 10 Q
A young man? I don't know any young men, all my clients are 70+.
So maybe this is a flirt I really enjoy? Meh, my flirtatious days are over, they only cause me trouble, and it leads to nothing but a broken heart.

J Q 5
Another young man enters my life, or it is a beautiful female. A beautiful young woman who works in health related profession.

J 8 10
And the third young man pops in, offering pillow talk, that comes in abundance.

8 K 3

Q / 6 / 6 / 9 / 8
10 / k / 3 / 10 / 9
Eight of Diamonds: idle chatter

Five of Spades: the hand with a knife

4 of Hearts: the trunk

2 of Spades: a duel

4 of Diamonds: the purse

The line starts and ends with a diamond, like you hold a coin in your fingers, and you keep turning it over and over, while you carefully consider the situation, and you count the things you have, and those you don't have. Between the two sides of the medal, there is a troubled heart.

The situation you're in has to do with rumours and loose lips, you are willing to take drastic measures to tackle the standstill in your lovelife, even if it means a seperation in order to regain your mental stability.

Queen of Hearts:the client

Six of Diamonds: streets of gold

Six of Clubs: footprints

Nine of Clubs: reaping

Eight of Clubs: shop talk

You are on the right track when you follow your instincts, have trust in your decision making, and are aware of the things that have grown. Not by nature, but by your energy and care. Your projects and callings.
Best course of action is to gather around with friends and make plans ahead. Not asking for advice, but spinning thoughts and pursue their possible and likely outcome. This is you deciding to think before you act.

Ten of Diamonds: treasure chest

King of Diamonds: a bank

3 of Spades: loss

Ten of Hearts: fire

Nine of Diamonds: daydreams

Once more your spread comes with the coin and its two sides, though this time it is about overcoming a financial problem, or you overcoming the doubts on your your comprehensive and cognitive faculties.
The things you have and the things you like to do... like you have that motorbike in your garage, and the imaginary travels you take need to come together and be united.
The King might be a safe bank, he can be a great provider, and sending him away seems a folly... but doing so ignites a fire in your bosom (or at least, you imagine it to happen).

Line 2
There may be some great troubles/worries pertaining to having enough money (for something in particular or general) caused by a business woman/superior/boss that's business may involve parties/social events for men of financial power or for the ability to pay for this socializing.

What type of advice will F.H give me/us? (this is professional advice)
8 4 A

Eight of Clubs: Thoughts about work. Work or career, in general. Business conversations, sometimes job interview. Company or corporation. Labor union. Practical plans.


4 of Clubs: Goals are on a firm footing. Job security. Boredom at work. Plowing or plodding along. Land or field or farm. “The Country”, in general. An outside building or place. A desk.

Ace of Hearts: The home. The family or a family member. The beginning of a love affair or new friendship. Sometimes a birth or addition to the family, or a change of residence (because aces indicate beginnings), but those interpretations are usually supported by other cards.

hmm....The advice is to have a business conversation on making goals that are firm footed about changing residence.

or



Reach out to a different corporation/union (outside building/place) about changing residence.

Update ^ highlighted was correct.

face-to-face 3x3 spread


face-to-face reading, posting with permission

single female's question: energy around lovelife?

9 6 7
2 A K
2 Q 9


The first line's reply the wish for a happy lovelife is denied was so disheartening and discouraging, I felt like I need to pick additional cards to soften their answer.

But the second line: exchange of funds, death, the executioner?! isn't any kinder. I started to wonder whether this woman really wants to be with a man.

So I picked the third line, which reads like seperation, a cruel mother, daydreams and leaves me behind in utter astonishment. Not a single , just this roadblock of dark energy seperating both 9's so the change she claims to wait for does not happen.

Dear reader, I am utterly confuddled about these cards's message.
Any insights from my highly considered threadmates?
