Does this person feel love?
10 wands - 9 cups - death.
can i see it like a wish came true, and all the burdens and hard work or the waiting struggle, finally are over? can someone agree or disagree with me? thanks.
It's not a clear answer. It does not say 100% yes. It gives a partial yes answer. It says yes there will be improvements with some things but delays with others.
Death and the 10 of Wands indicate feeling out of control ... whilst being expected to stay in control, to do all the work. So whilst you'll experience some kind of improvement, there is still a great pressure you'll experience with the 10 of Wands.
So to answer your question, you will experience happiness. The Death card does signify an ending to the current set-up. But the 10 of Wands is still an oppressive, demanding and unrewarding card so be prepared for those other things to take a bit longer to resolve.
The reason I've described it like this is because the transition from burden to happiness is not clean. The transition is not instant, but even although it is not instant it happens.
When a reading, such as this one, does not provide a clear or clean answer then you have to be prepared for the message of the reading (in your case, the 9 of Cups) to indicate something else. What this means for you is the 9 of Cups, indicating happiness, may not happen in the manner you wish for.
Hope that helped.
Douglas, thanks for sharing your experience with the cards.
i really tried to make it simple to get an clear answer... Although i know when it concerns to feelings there's a lot of things going on to get an clear answer from a card...cause its an subjective question... right? hm... But about your interpretation i agree in such a point that there's a lot of work going on to make things happen but it shouldn't be that hard.
I tried to make a clear question now with a purpose to understand if this has some potential or not.
I asked if he want's to marry with person x with a celtic cross from Taroteon.
(present)2 cups: love, relationship.
.. On present he dreams about it.He wishes it. But maybe he can't take an concrete decision about it.
(distant future)2 pentacles: juggling with other relationship or material issues meanwhile.
(recent past)3 wands: will on making a commitment.
(distant past)ace wands: potential for something new.
(near future) ace cups: potential,love.
(her)6 pentacles:well succeeded.
(him or environment): 7pentacles: change.
(potential outcome): 6swords: solving problems. Moving on to a better emotional period.
(outcome)queen pentacles: this women.
Maybe now there's a good feeling in this relationship (2cups) although there is some undecision(7cups) on taking an action about it. The two aces show potential on this reading, and make me think that this person wants a change,also because 7disks is in the environment place and this women is appearing here to be well succeeded(6disks) solving problems (6sw)after the long time of hard work from 10 wands we saw above.
But not all is pretty... even with all the potential brought by aces, the 6sw might represent this couple moving on from this situation that seems to be going nowhere, because 7 cups and 2 disks.
What do you think Douglas? Thank you.
well, it doesn't matter now. there was a split up between them.
Whenever you get 7s and Aces in a reading - big changes are coming. Sometimes those changes are what people want and other times they are not. It was an interesting set of cards and it's always a good idea to go back over a reading once you know the outcome and reinterpret the cards. It's the best way to learn.
Thank you Douglas.
So 7's are big changes too? Didn't know that! Another learning
Yes, 7s are usually misunderstood. All the 7s represent the possibility of success, in one form or another. The problem, however, is that the 7s are also weak. Therefore, in order for the 7s to represent a successful outcome they require support or help from some outside source ... something outside of themselves.
Just thought I'd jump in say thank you for that new insight into the 7s...the 7s (and the 8s) are always the trickiest pip cards for me to work into an interpretation of a reading. It's given me a new view on the 7s to keep in mind that they can represent the possibility of success, but since they're weak on their own, require supporting cards to go in that direction (and vice versa).
