So, I did a quick 5-card spread to check how my May will be, and I’m wondering if I’m seeing things right or what… I mean, some really interesting cards came up, and I’m always great at reading for others, but when it comes to myself… it’s just not so easy. So I’m interested in your input here.
In order, from left to right:
Death / Knight of Swords / Ace of Cups / The Devil / The Lovers
Interesting, huh? The Devil and The Lovers are mirrors of each other, and they poppped up side by side… and also, I’m a Gemini Sun (which is connected to The Lovers card itself).
The first two seem to be showing some swift change, something that happens overnight, but could it be because of some impulsive decision I make? Because the Knight of Swords makes it seem like it’d be as a consequence of a voluntary, impulsive choice of mine. It’s also interesting how the white horses are opposing each other. Maybe some massive change is coming and I’ll try to resist it?
Edit: I’m also thinking these two could be representing a dangerous aggression or assault?
Then the other three cards seem to be clearly pointing at something romantic happening. Perhaps something new (Ace of Cups) that starts steamy (The Devil) and then evolves into something more emotional and meaningful (The Lovers)?
Am I seeing what I want to see, or are these things actually what’s being shown to me? I always have issues reading for myself, but it’s a shame that I can see things so clearly for others and not use this tool to improve my own life.
Background: I’m a woman and I’ve chosen to stay single for a couple of years now. Closest “romantic” thing I’ve got in my life right now is a guy I’ve been talking to online for the past few months, and things do tend to get hot often, but we never met (I don’t want to and he’s not rushing me, which is great).
That guy is the only one I can think that might fit what the last three cards are trying to show, but maybe it’s someone else? I’m not going out or “putting myself out there” even.
Edit: I pulled three clarifiers and they’re The Emperor / King of Swords / 6 of Pentacles, so there could be a love triangle going on here? But with whom? I mean, I’m not involved with anyone, who are these guys? lol
And the guy I know so far is actually a few years younger than me, while these two seem older or around my same age. Maybe they’re not about love at all, despite the Ace of Cups and The Lovers? What am I missing…
Did anyone else get these combined before (even if partially)?
What events happened to you afterwards?
How can the first two connect to the last three?
Maybe my interpretation should be more spiritual and less practical? Maybe The Lovers is just about me having a couple of choices and me doing what I’d have to do, as if I were bound to do it (The Devil)?
Is my interpretation waaaay too off, or does it seem accurate?
What am I missing here? Thoughts?
