Why do you damn card readers keep doing this to me.
I am not the nobody.
But, no half measures.
Here is the rest.
I may as well take both lumps.
Step Two -
Legacy of the Divine
Step Three -
Will my lover ever be recognized.
Step Four -
Fire, Air, Water, Earth

For you, I've done a "peak into the future" type of spread. This is because you aren't necessarily looking for advice but are instead looking for
the future. What you will probably find is that those two goals are often catalysts for one another. This spread will show you what is possible and
also an opportunity to change it.
Key or Main Aspect - Death -
The aspect when I read is almost always the querient (you). This means that your life, right now, is best
personified by the Death card. Death is not about physical death. This is more of a metamorphosis or a transition from one set of core beliefs to
another. I know you are Gemini but The Death falls under Scorpio. Perhaps there's a Scorpio who is helping you through these changes.
Past Event - Page of Cups (upside-down) -
The Page of Cups usually represents a messenger delivering you great news. In this case, the card
is upside-down so it is a bit different. I would say that the relevant past being referred to here is either a bad message that was delivered or
perhaps a very jealous and selfish person (that is who
the card represents if not what). This experience is currently aiding in the shaping of
your new self.
Future Event (or something to take into account) - 10 of Swords (upside-down) -
This card is always bad when it's rightside-up as it would
portend a back-stabbing of sorts. As you can see, this man is being stabbed in the back by 10 swords by unknown assailants. This normally means you
will not see what is harming you. Upside-down
makes it quite different. This means you will see and be able to prevent this from happening.
In context to your issue, this would mean that you have somebody in your life trying to prevent you from finding your love. But you will actually
find out who that is. For all you know, this person is
who you should be with. Remember, a person who doesn't have a sword in your back
still has one to protect you with.
Root or Base - 10 of Wands -
Looking at the card, you can see that this man is being burdened with 10 staffs being carried on his back. In the
Rider-Waite version, it is a man who is struggling to pick up 10 wands. The point is this: you are carrying too much crap. I'm guessing that many
of these things weighing you down are aspects of your life that you are trying to micro-manage. The problem is that you are too invested into
everything you are carrying just like the man in the card. He is almost there. It is your choice to either remove some burdens or to carry them to
the finish line. This is sort of what is rooting you.
Opportunity - The Empress -
Wow. The Empress represents pretty much every mother goddess out there. She mostly comes up when there is/will be
a pregnancy or a mother in your life. In this case, it is as an opportunity. This means there is either a pregnant woman or somebody who has a young
child who you need to watch for. This person is of an Earth element which means you may not think you have much in common at first. In fact, you
might not like each other at all upon first impressions. Point is this: this person will either be or lead you to your love. If you see her,
befriend her and if you already know her, take a greater interest in her life.
As far as your query, it's up in the air. Finding the one you have in mind might actually be harmful to you. Follow the above advice and I'm
confident you will find your love. Her identity might be a surprise, though, as it might add to burdens that you feel are already too much. Also,
remember that if you find out that somebody has been intentionally holding you back, that person might be doing it for your own good or for her own
interests in you.
