Hi everyone! Today I did another love based spread. My roommate/best friend is going on a date tomorrow and she asked me if I could do a reading to see how it will go. I thought it might be fun to make it my spread of the week for all my single viewers.
I really enjoyed doing this spread. I found that the card placement meanings ended up being a little different than written. I found that the second card was more about how this new person would be like to date rather than how they specifically will feel about the relationship. As well as with the outcome I found that it didn’t have to do specifically with the date (which makes me think the date will go nowhere so there isn’t much of an outcome to discuss) and rather talks about an outcome for my friend in general. You’ll see what I mean.
How You Feel: Two of Pentacles
This card talks about ones inability to provide the energy and time required to make your partner happy. You have so much going on in other areas of your life right now that you find it hard to make them your priority. You have 2 main aspects in your life (love and finances/career is what I feel they are) that you’re trying to balance. One small error though and the balance will be lost. You need to figure out your priorities.
How they feel: Ten of Pentacles Reversed
Currently there won’t be an issue but one might come up later. This card talks about financial issues since it is a pentacles card. This card also talks about wasting your time. Relationships have been great for the short term fun but you lack substance for a relationship in the long haul.
Potential for a Relationship: Seven of Pentacles
This card talks about how you have a fear of failing. You feel you’ve put effort into relationships in the past but they never seem to be successful in the end. Despite numerous mistakes you are learning from them and becoming a better person from them. Your fear of failure may be keeping you from committing to this potential relationship.
Advice: Queen of Swords
This card is an archetype of an older, wiser, feminine intellect. It says to make judgments without emotion alone and to look at all the facts first before you make any decisions.
Like I said I think there is no outcome to this date so I think this is an outcome for my friend in general and not for this specific relationship. In reverse this cards talks about mental illness which my friend has struggled with but I pulled the card upright which talks about having inner strength and fortitude during trying times. It talks about the ability to remain calm and strong even during immense struggle. It also says that maintaining your compassion will always be rewarded with having stability in your life either presently or in the near future. Also this card is a Major Arcana which I think is suggesting that this date is going to be insignificant in the grand scheme of things but the path you are on to self healing is amazing.
Lastly, I also noticed a lot of pentacles were pulled, and so I did a little research about it, and from what I read considering the topic and what I’ve learned so far it suggests a focus on the material aspects of the relationship. This relationship would have no spark because despite having a lot in common and being able to have fun together there is no emotional, intellectual, or spiritual bond in the relationship.
That’s it for this week! If you see anything I missed, have any general thoughts, or questions feel free to leave it in the comments. Thanks for reading and make sure to subscribe so you get notifications when I post. Merry Meet and Blessed Be!
