Who is your Queen of Swords?

I recently met a lady at a meeting in our office. She is probably aroud 40 and working at a high profile post with the Government as an advisor. As I heard her speak, I was impressed. She seemed to know so much about every possible subject and spoke in an effortless manner. And she was very very confident. Most men I could see were in awe of her. And I thought..she is exactly a Queen of Swords. Sharp, intelligent, witty and confident.

Most of us struggle with court cards. I am no exception. Since a couple of months, I have been trying the method of associating someone I know to a Court Card. And I find that works very well as I now have a real life 3-D persona to relate the card to. Most people i find are a mix of cards. However, there are some which seem to totally fit a card like a frame. Similar to the lady I mention above.

Is there someone you know who fits a Court Card to the T?

Another, thing I felt was that Court Card personalities vary amongst decks. For example...

When I look at the Queen of Cups in the Rider Waite deck, I feel she is someone who is ofcourse emotional but even a wee bit nostalgic or sad from inside. Someone like...Jennifer Aniston ? (from what I read from the gossip magazines!).

But if I take the Shadowscape Queen of Cups, I think of someone who though emotional is a free spirit, filled with joy for life. Someone like...Goldie Hawn?

Cher Green has a post on Court Cards which I found quite interesting.

Objectivity, Objectvity, Objectivity

I find I am quite objective about my own readings, even if they are important questions. BUT, I find at times that it is difficult to be objective and rational about reading for people very close to me. Maybe because we all are very uneasy to see our nearest and dearest sad or hurt. So we tend to hope for the best for them.

I recently did a reading for someone very close to me, and at that time decided the outcome would be positive (ignoring the niggling at the back of my head). In retrospect, I can clearly see a very different story coming out of the cards. Clearly, I should have read the cards differently before. I would have done so for anyone else.

A career reading. Will firm X make an offer?

My interpretation before: They see you have the qualifications and are seriously considering your candidature. They will make you an offer, though it might not be exactly what you want.

In retrospect: They see you have the qualifications and are seriously considering your candidature. However, someone else will get the position (even though you might be the better candidate). You will receive an empathic reply but not an offer.
