I had a reading recently with a client that was caught in what I like to call a “Circular relationship.” This is a relationship that, if it was a basketball, you’d know what it looks like and you’d know what it’s for…but you keep trying to play hockey with it. The key cards in this spread were the World, the 10 of Swords inverted and the 10 of Batons/Wands inverted.
“We were supposed to be moving in together in a month. He went out of town with his brother and when he came back, he said he didn’t love me and wanted out of this,” Olive began our conversation.
However, when digging deeper we uncover a pattern. He is usually more off than on, he has cheated, he is overly flirtatious with other women … maybe he’s just not ready for this.
“I believe he’s only in this relationship because it’s what you want. If you were done he’d be gone. I know this is going to sound weird, but he does care about you, that’s why he’s hiding things and lying. However, he’s trying to be honest now because he feels horrible and really wants to be set free.”
Sometimes we bite off more than we can chew. Sometimes our need to not be seen as bad makes us do things that, when the truth is revealed, may be awful, but the truth must to told or we stay stuck in the circle. Acceptance is another story, so get a reading!
