Zoya did her best to relax and comfort the man, but she knew it was a lot of harsh news that he had received today. Stroking his fingers lightly with her own, she listened as he expressed his main concerns to her, which seemed to be related to timing, and whether he would
ever find love.
"Well, the way I do my readings, the 'near future' is anywhere from now up to six months from now. So, the 'battle' will commence soon. The 'far future' can be anywhere from six months to a year away. So, yes, it will take time for everything to transpire and come to a conclusion. I do not see that this conspiracy has gone any further from those two people. I would have mentioned it if I felt it was a larger group of friends. Still, I understand your concern, but you do not have to worry. It does not go that far."
She looked into his eyes warmly and adjusted her leg slightly so that it stroked against his. With a wink, she continued. As for love, I know that is what you asked about, and obviously the cards had other things to tell you. I see that you really want to know, so..." She withdrew her hands from his and reached for a different deck, gave them a quick shuffle and laid down three cards.
Looking up at him once more, she said, "I normally don't do this, you know. But, seeing as how this is so important to you...Before I say anything, remember that you will have your hands full with this situation anyway..."
Inhaling deeply, she breathed out quickly through her mouth and began. "I only laid out three cards, and asked what you wanted to know. If there are any prospects out there for real love for you..."
"The first card is the Devil...it represents anger, base desires, mass consumption...Again, you will have your hands full with these people and taking care of business."
"The next is the Tower...you see how it is falling apart from the bottom, but the fey inside is nonchalantly looking out the window? This is you...Your world is crumbling around you, but you have chosen not to see it...until today, of course." She winked and smiled, hoping he was not too worried at this point.
"Lastly, you have the Ace of Wands...aces represent new beginnings, they are the seed for change. So, again, I must tell you that you will have to start over, but once you do, you will have the power to make anything that you want happen
Her eyes met his pointedly, one eyebrow raised. "Right now, no...there are no good prospects for real love. You will find it, and her, in the future. But right now, I would say it's highly unlikely that you will find the one you seek. Fix the rest of your life first. Then, you may see out real love." She sighed softly and leaned back in her chair, somewhat spent. "I am sorry, but I can only tell you what I see."
