Every so often, I get an email from a reader asking me if I can interpret their Tarot reading. Typically, I quickly scan the reading and write down what I see in the cards.
However, I started to think, surely there’s benefit in sharing not only what I see in the cards but also creating the opportunity for other Tarot readers to share what they see in the cards.
And so, a new idea is born!
In today’s post, I am taking a Celtic Cross Tarot reading that Jennifer from Korea sent in (with her permission of course). I’ll provide my initial thoughts and then I’ll hand it over to you, the reader, to use the comments section to write what you see.
Remember there’s no right or wrong and you don’t have to be an experienced Tarot reader to comment.
Then, I am hoping Jennifer will be able to provide her feedback on what we’ve seen in the cards.
So, let’s get started.
Jennifer asked the Tarot about a relationship that recently ended. Sadly, her partner just wanted to be friends, leaving her heartbroken and upset.
The Tarot Spread
Jennifer used the Celtic Cross Tarot spread – the same version I use for my Celtic Cross Tarot readings. I have ‘re-enacted’ the reading so you can see what cards she drew (see above).
My Take on the Cards
Present: 10 Wands – It’s a tough situation and Jennifer is taking on a lot personally, potentially blaming herself for what happened.
Challenge: 4 Cups – The challenge is her ex is not interested even though Jennifer has expressed her feelings and shown an interest in progressing the relationship.
Past: World Reversed – Her ex felt like there was something missing in the relationship, or perhaps there was unfinished business elsewhere.
Below: 5 Cups – There are feelings of regret, sadness and disappointment about what has happened.
Above: King Cups – Both Jennifer and her ex are trying to remain calm and emotionally controlled. They are probably trying their best to do the right thing by each other.
Look at the 5 of Cups and the King of Cups combined. On the face of it, they’re trying to be calm and in control, yet underneath there’s regret and sadness about what has happened.
Future: 8 Cups reversed – This is encouraging for a reconciliation! While her ex has turned his back on the relationship now, he may soon regret having ended it and may return. This is supported by the 5 of Cups.
Advice: 2 of Cups – Even though they’re not together now, the advice is to keep the connection going. Stay in touch and remain friends for now.
External influence: Justice – There may be legal matters that are impacting the relationship, or there may be some important decisions that need to be made on his part before he can commit to the relationship.
Hopes/Fears: 6 of Cups – There is a hope that the relationship can go back to how it was.
Outcome: Strength – Have faith. If this relationship is meant to be, then it will be. Stay strong!
Overall, I would say this situation looks positive. He may need some space now, but I feel that over the next few weeks or months, he may begin to regret the decision he has made and may look for a reconciliation. Jennifer just needs to hang in there and stay strong! Even though she wants to be more involved, the advice is to stay friends and continue to support one another. If this is meant to be, then the Universe will bring them back together at the right time.

P.S. I really, really wanted to do this as my first video blog post but having played around with it for a couple of hours with limited success, I threw it in the too hard basket! If you know how to make a decent video easily, let’s talk!
P.P.S. I need a catchy title for this segment (i.e. where we all get to share our interpretations of a Tarot spread). If you have a great idea of what to call this, get in touch.
