A New Tarot Layout

This is the post that Mr. Giant is so excited about. First let me give you a little bit of a school update. Mr. Giant has been living with me for about two months now. We don't really know if we're dating or what. I do know that I am very emotionally attached to him and at times that scares me. We only have two weeks of school left and things are so uncertain right now. As you all know I have a lot going on in my life as does Mr. Giant so neither one of us is certain about anything other than knowing that we are for sure coming back to school in August.

We have not made love and we've only kissed once but there is a lot of flirting and playfulness that doesn't happen in platonic relationships. Right now about all I know is that I'm addicted to him holding me at night, I'm addicted to the way he smells, and when he smiles my world lights up. I know those are supposed to be good things but they scare me sometimes too because everything is so uncertain. I'm not really sure what to think or do but I value every moment I have with him and I thank Aphrodite every night for blessing my life with Mr. Giant.

Anyway, about the layout. This layout came to me while Mr. Giant and I were having a "tarot party," as we call them. Miss K and her boyfriend were over here and we were just playing around with the cards. Someone wanted me to do the daily spread for them which consists of five cards laid out with one card at the top, one at the bottom, and three in the middle. You lay them out in a clockwise motion and they cover work, home, unexpected occurrences, obstacles, and the outcome of the day. I never really like that layout and as I sat there looking at the cards while Miss K and her boyfriend playfully created false meanings for the cards I realized that I liked how the cards were laid out just not what they meant.

I leaned over to Mr. Giant who was sitting next to me on the couch and said, "You know, this layout would work much better as a relationship layout. The two cards on the top and bottom represent the people in the relationship, and the three in the middle represent past, present, and future." Mr. Giant's eyes got really big and he suggested we try it out on the cards Miss K and her boyfriend had laid out there. The layout worked quite well with them, then he asked to do a reading using the new layout on us, as in me and Mr. Giant. Miss K laid the cards out for us and read from the book to give us an answer because I felt like I was too biased to be able to interpret it. The picture below is of the reading done on me and Mr. Giant (I think). I'll tell you guys the cards that were in our reading in case I took a picture of the wrong reading we did several testing out the new layout.

This is the way the cards lay. The one on the top represents the partner that wears the pants in the relationship which should be complimentary to the other person in the relationship represented by the card on the bottom. Relationships should be reassessed if there are extreme differences in these cards such as the dominant card being a ten of swords with the other card being a three of wands because this could be an indication that someone is too domineering. The three cards in the middle represent past, present, and future which generally should tell you how they met, where the relationship is now, and where it is headed if things stay the way they are. These cards should also give indications on things that need work, what they can do to improve the relationship, or show signs of danger, etc.

Mine and Mr. Giant's cards were the Five of Pentacles on top representing him, the Four of Pentacles on bottom representing me, Temperance in the past, the Lovers in the present, and the Queen of Pentacles in the future. Miss K read the meanings of them from the book and told us that we are a really good match but we have a lot of things to discuss and figure out before we can be together. That sounded really good to me lol. If any of you guys are familiar with the tarot and would like to interpret mine and Mr. Giant's reading I'm open to any interpretations you have and even if you just have some advice in general I'm open to that too. Just leave me comments!

Mr. Giant has been pushing me for weeks to share this with you guys. He was so excited when I used this new layout. Sometimes I think he's just fascinated with my gifts. Of course he has gifts of his own. He sees ghosts where as I just feel them, he has prophetic dreams like I do, and he's sensitive to energy. I can sense that he has many more gifts than that and he has yet to find them. As I said earlier he truly is a blessing from Aphrodite. It is a huge breath of fresh air to be able to share all this with him and not feel like he's looking at me like I'm a freak. His calm acceptance and understanding gives me strength when I dearly need it.

It's good to hear about what you're doing with the tarot.

But what happened to Mr. Cup? I thought you were going to marry him someday.

Very interesting! I am, though not new to tarot, but not too much experienced in it, so I do not dare to give an explanation, but its fascinating - and in the end the important thing is that how Mr. Giant and You, the persons in the cards, interpret it:)

And i am also very happy about this news with Mr. Giant. There seems to be soo much happiness:)

Hey Sarita, in answer to your question, I've learned some things about Mr. Cup that really angered me. The personality that I loved so much in him wasn't even his own. I learned that he has no set personality of his own, it changes with each person he hangs out with, so if he hangs out with good people he has a wonderful personality, but if he hangs out with stuck up rude people he reflects their personality. I got tired of all that and sort of felt like I'd been slapped in the face when I realized what was actually happening. So Mr. Cup is no longer in the picture and this scary fun adventure with Mr. Giant is now beginning.
