It’s Written In The Cards…

9 Jan

A Tarot Card reader. Not actually Nikki, fyi.

What better way to kick off the new year than to get some insight into what I can expect in 2011? Back in October, after being quoted in The Guardian’s article on racism and online dating I was contacted by a Nikki, a tarot card reader with an interesting idea. Nikki offered me the chance to have my tarot cards read to see what my dating future would have in store for me. What an opportunity! I’d never thought much about tarot readings before. In fact, I’d go as far as to say I’m usually quite sceptical about those sorts of things but, scepticism aside, I was hella curious to see what the cards would say about  my love life.

I met with Nikki at the end of last year and the first thing she explained to me was that the cards don’t do predictions. Nor will they tell me what to do. I wanted the reading to refer only to my love life (and not my life in general) so I had a ‘question reading’, where we asked the cards answers to specific questions. To give Nikki a feel for my ‘energy’, we kicked off the proceedings by me shuffling the cards. We asked the cards questions such as “where am I now, with regards to dating?” “where am I going, with regards to dating?”, “what should I do more/less of, with regards to dating?” etc.

There weren’t any huge earth-shattering revelations, but ‘the cards’ did confirm a few things I already knew to be true, as well as inform me of some potentially interesting developments…

  • The cards confirmed I had a long rest from dating before my recent spurt. This was due to me feeling tired, disappointed and hurt after past experiences.
  • The cards  don’t think I’m too far off from stability.  In fact (drum roll…) ‘the cards’ went as far as to say I’ll be meeting the one who brings me stability in the next 3-6months.
  • The cards think I already know this guy. There is a work-related connection. Although we may not have directly worked together as a team. It may not be my first profession of PR (which is highly populated with females) but an offshoot – music, film, or maybe connected to my second job (this blog?)
  • Although I know this guy its someone I’ve not noticed previously because he’s not on my radar.
  • This guy travels a lot. He may be based in another country. Getting together with him could mean relocating in the near future.
  • He’s currently still romantically involved or has feelings for someone and has business he needs to finish up.
  • The cards confirmed that I’m quite a reserved dater. Past experiences mean that I hold back and don’t reveal too much of myself. I ‘sit back’ emotionally when first getting to know a guy. So much so that they may not even know that I like them. I play it cool for fear of getting hurt.
  • The cards said I need to be more realistic in what I’m looking for. I’m too much of a dreamer. I walk away too early without finding out enough about the guy. I’m looking for perfection, fulfilment, dreamer on the inside, practical on the outside.
  • The cards think I need a traveller. Someone adventurous. Someone willing to not stay in one place. An independent guy who does his own thing but is still able to give me time and attention.
  • The cards confirmed I want something I can shout about. Something I can make formal/public. Not necessarily marriage but even as small as changing my Facebook status. To show others is it possible for me to have a relationship.
  • I picked a lot of fire and water cards, which equal passion and emotion rather than picking air cards, which are the cards that allude to intellect. While this doesn’t mean I’m looking for a guy who is stupid, it does mean connecting on an emotional level is higher on my list of needs.

All very interesting eh? What makes it more interesting is the fact I’ve recorded everything right here. Depending on what will or what may not happen in the next 6 months. I have this post as something I can refer back to. The thing is, how much can I rely on this? If I already know this guy, do I still need to make an effort to date? Also, how much do I want to raid my Facebook friends list to figure out who the hell this guy is? Haha! All I can say, is watch this space…

    I wish Nikki was a tad closer to me! I had my tarot cards read this past October and essentially I was told my heart chakra was “blocked” and I would never find love unless I did some one on one work with her (you can take a guess at her hourly rate). She also told me not to volunteer overseas as I’d die. Thank you, nice to meet you 🙂

      I find some readers shocking, some think its a licence to print money. If your heart chakra was blocked she should have given you ideas on how to resolve it yourself, but likely it was just a chance to get more sessions with you. Its also not a readers job to tell you what to do, and i doubt she knows you would die if you voluteer. People like this need to be reported, the prey on people.
      A good reading should send you away with food for thought, and perhaps homework to improve thing. If you drop me a note on my blog will pull a card for free for you.

    I say – go out as you planned! Who knows! Looking forward to what transpires!

      I agree, don’t stop doing what your doing.

    How interesting. This was something I needed to read as I am planning on doing the exact same thing this year! It’s nice to see others willing to step outside of the box and delve a bit deeper into themselves to learn what to do and whay they may or may not be doing to find love.

      Hey Hope, yes it was definitely an interesting experience! Fingers crossed it comes true 🙂

    Ha! I may do the same thing. I wonder what the cards will reveal?

      Hey Roxanne. Yes, it was fun but it definitely would’ve been much better if the cards had been right!
