A while back ago I went on Kickstarter and purchased some lovely playing cards designed by Ian Cumpstey. So I decided to do a reading with them.
A friend of mine had a job interview coming up for a higher position, and she was very stressed about it. I was wondering how her interview would go. I decided to ask the cards on my own, but of course I didn’t mention the reading to her ahead of the interview. A person has to have the chance to take things in their own hands first and see where that goes.
I have two decks by Ian Cumsptey, and decided to use his Pike and Clover deck for this reading. In my mind I asked how the interview would go, but unconsciously I also wanted to know if my friend would get the job. The cards I drew were the Queen of Clubs, the Queen of Spades, the Two of Clubs, the Five of Hearts and the Four of Diamonds.
Since the Queen of Clubs started the line, I took her to represent my friend in a work context (Clubs). I wasn’t sure what to do about the other Queen. Unless one of the interviewers was a woman, the Queen of Spades would probably be another person applying for the same position because two Queens side by side often represent rivalry.
The middle card was the Two of Clubs which can be cooperation or the opposite. In a context of rivalry then, this would not be good for my friend.
But what about that Five of Hearts, which is the card I call the “burning desire”? Since it’s the fourth card drawn, it “mirrors” the second card (Queen of Spades). So this person has a burning desire for the position. Somehow this will influence the course of the interview, even though the rival wouldn’t be present.
So what would my friend (Queen of Clubs) end up with? The card “mirroring” the Queen of Clubs is the Four of Diamonds. With that card I wasn’t sure if my friend would get the post she wanted. Fours speak of stability; there’s not much movement there, and I didn’t think it could be beat the “burning desire” of the Five of Hearts. What I felt from the reading is that my friend would probably not be given the new position, but would continue to have some financial stability for a little while longer.
My friend eventually confirmed that things turned out as the cards had shown. She did not get the position; another female colleague of hers, who really wanted the position, did.
