It has been awhile, and I can't find my notes, so I will have to do this from memory.
The first card represents the querent, person the reading is about. The Kind of wands or staffs is a person capable of manifesting change in the world, a person with the ability to make physical things happen.
The second card, represents what is preventing the person from their goal. Death prevents the end of the old self, but reversed it means that the change will not be complete, the lessons not learned, possibly that change will not be good.
The third card represents the past, what is behind the querent. The 8 of coins represents a new business adventure, so the query might have recently began on some new endeavor, new profession, perhaps.
The fourth card represents what has recently happened to the querent. The moon represents recent physic activity, intuitive influences. This fits in with what you are saying.
The fifth card is what crowns the querent, what may happen in the future. Wheel of fortune (reversed) means possible loss of fortune.
So far I would think that the querent is worried about failure in this new enterprise, and what is holding them back is a failure to complete a change in themselves.
The sixth card represents what is in the near future. The Lovers represent an attraction, a positive temptation.
The Seventh card represents what the querent fears. The Ace of cups reversed represents a bad start to an emotional issue, failure to find happiness.
The eight card represents what the querent must overcome, in order to reach their goal. Ace of wands (reversed) means a failure to get started on an endeavor.
The ninth card represents the querents hopes, and opinions on the matter. The tower (reversed) means destruction of things that have been holding the querent back. Freedom gained at great cost.
The 10th card represents what the cards predicts will happen. 5 of cups (reversed) is actually a good thing. The five of anything is always bad, so good when reversed, in this case the return of happiness, emotional fulfillment.
This is a good reading. I would say the querent is trying to change, and knows that they must change in order to succeed at some new adventure. This person has recently experienced some intuitive guidance. They probably see a significant loss coming in the near future. The will likely find a new dream in the near future. They fear a bad start, inability to find happiness in this new enterprise. They are willing to pay greatly in order to succeed, and will probably finds the happiness they seek, or more accurately that they wish to regain.

When a person either just refuses to learn or is ignorant to the lesson for too long, they go through things I call Tower Experiences. Tower experiences are never easy and normally aren't enjoyable, but if you succeed to figure it out the wisdom gained is worth the trouble. It's basically an ultimatum where you either learn your lesson finally or watch a solid foundation/situation/relationship completely and inevitably crumble. Now keep in mind that the Tower card is a Neutral card, and therefore there isn't necessarily a true right or wrong choice here, but rather it depends on what YOU want for your life or the person.
The Death card is similar to the Tower in the fact that's it's Neutral as well and it refers to renewal, rebirth, the essential death and transformation of a person or situation. The card in the second position of this spread, and the fact that it's reversed, are suggesting that this male (King of Wands) is refusing or having trouble moving on or preventing or attributing to someone else not moving on (learning lesson, etc.) I'm a little confused on who is person A and who is B but hopefully this still makes sense.
One thing I'd like to say is that in this spread, it's telling me that both parties are partially/equally responsible for this Tower experience, and the direction it's going so far suggests they aren't learning the lesson.

The spirit you mentioned also, and in according with the cards that came up, suggest that the spirit isn't necessarily trying to help or harm "Jane" but rather that it's just...how do I say this...being itself, doing what it wants, what comes naturally. Maybe this entity is just curious and happens to be coexisting with "Jane", but there's no special message. In fact the reversed High Priestess really sold that for me. She's saying that "Jane" doesn't need to do or not do anything and that even if she did, she doesn't have the means or knowledge at this time to effect this spirit for whatever reason. Most importantly that being that the High Priestess is both mystery and magic, she states that she's not going to tell "Jane" what to do because she doesn't need to know right now. If this entity is violent, then perhaps the cards are speaking that there's nothing she can really do about it and it might be better just to leave. If the spirit is calm or friendly, then there's nothing to worry about.
