“A little bit about me…hmmm…where do I start…I’m a complicated but simple person…logic tends to get the better of me once I’ve gotten over any conclusions I’ve jumped to, which is generally all the time. I’m a very happy person & love life, I think that this is one of the first characteristics people would notice about me…I tend to smile & laugh a lot! I am a social being with lots of different friends but also keep a close few friends who I can rely on for anything & talk to about everything. I’m impulsive, assertive & very bossy, as well as creative & opinionated. I tend to be domineering quite a bit of the time, have a very strong personality & try to remain independent. I am very family-orientated & rely on my folks & sister for their sound advice & loving, warm personalities although sometimes I think that I’m too influenced by them…sometimes I wish I could really take a step back & make a decision for myself, on my own without any input from them…then again…we wouldn’t be such a close family. I am highly ambitious, love to write & want to make a difference in the world…as cliched as that may sound…it’s the truth! I really believe that I’m here to do something special…what that is I have no idea!

I was born on 28 February 2008 and am a Pisces…hurrah!

I guess my question to you would be…(this is hard to narrow it down)…will I be a rockstar? No, just kidding! Next…um…will I be successful over & beyond my expectation & dreams that I have set for me?

If that’s too hard…I’ll be a cliche & ask…will I meet my Mr Darcy anytime soon?

Right, that should set you off 🙂 Kief…I look forward to it!”

Question: what does my current life path hold for me, with regards to career and love?

This card could also represent a person – already present in your life, or about to enter. This person will be an extremist, with the ability to convince you of anything. Beware his lies. Beware his rash behavior. It is better to avoid someone who has the power to sway you so easily. This person is nosy and two-faced and devious. Now that you have warning of his presence in your life, the best reaction is evasion. After all, prevention is better than cure.

Showing that all your actions will be returned to you, eventually. Be mindful of your actions.
