Anonymous asked: i used to have this friend of the opposite sex whom i treasured a lot, and it was always fun to hang out with him, despite only knowing him at the beginning of this year. suddenly, he seems to be avoiding me, i tried asking him, but he just dismissed the issue as saying that he is busy. as time goes by, it gets more and more obvious, and i am at lost of what is the problem here. it all seems too weird.is it possible for you to find out about the main reason he is acting this way or if we will ever return to being friends again?
No promises, but I'll try. Let's see if the cards have insight.
Past - Cups VIII - Well, the cards seem to agree with you. This is a card of friendship, but also of pulling away and withdrawal. There is a possibility of self-pity noted here or futility, perhaps an over-fearful heart. No matter, there is a sense of imbalance here that may (or may not) have anything to do with your friendship, even though it's affecting it.
Present - The Wheel - This is a card of change, of evolution. Generally, I would say it bodes better than ill, an indication of good fortune, of things changing for the better: finding a solution, advancement, adaptation, acceptance. Since the question was focused on him and your relationship I'm hoping that you stand on the eve of a resolution that will answer your concerns. However, the change could mean a break in your relationship, destined for whatever reason.
Future - The Devil - Unfortunately, the card does not argue for happy change in the present. This card is all about selfishness and stagnation, greed and oppression. Which means, if your relationship becomes closer, it may not be healthy (I presume for you). Or, if it sunders, he will end up an unhappy person, chasing the sorts of things that don't lead to happiness.
I'll ask if there's any clarification on his current motives (though I have a suspicion) to see if they can help me pinpoint why he's drifting now.
Coins X - Material wealth and its pursuit. He is either working or looking for potential directions to get money into his life.
I don't know him, of course, and (as I've said many times), I'd warn anyone against taking an anonymous long distant reading as more than a curiosity (certainly not gospel), but my reading of the cards argues he is ambitious, has big plans, dreams of more for himself. For whatever reason, he thinks your friendship is "in the way" or inconvenient to those plans. If his vision doesn't include you, that might very well explain his reticence. Ambition is a fine thing, but, if it becomes all consuming, you can lose sight of what's really important. But, if that's his destiny, you might be happier in the long run not tied to him.
Sorry, I didn't find any happy outcomes.
