~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(10)OVERALL HOPE~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(5)Hopes~~(4)Lover One~(6)Fears-------(8)Hopes~(7)Lover Two~(9)Fears

~~~~~~~~~~~~(2)Hopes~~~~(1)Querant~~~(3)Fears~~~~~ ~


First card is the Querant (or asker)
Second card is their hopes as they pertain to the relationship.
Third card is their fears as they pertain to the relationship.

Fourth card is Lover one
Fifth card is their hopes as they pertain to the relationship.
Sixth card is their fears as they pertain to the relationship.

Sevent card is Lover two
Eigth card is their hopes as they pertain to the relationship.
Ninth card is their fears as they pertain to the relationship.

Tenth card is over all hopes and should clearly point to one or the other. Don't try to determine which pile is lover one and which is lover two until all cards are laid out. If the querent is with you (mine wasn't as this was an online reading), then you can ask them which lover is which pile after you describe the card that is the Lover in each three group.

Should I label lover 1 to be this person and lover 2 to be this person like person 1 is named this and lover 2 is named this?

After you lay them out, you figure which lover is which card by the card description.

Say you have a black haired guy and a blonde.
In lover one, you get the Page of Swords, and in lover 2, you get the King of Pentacles.
In most decks, swords are black-haired and pentacles are blonde, so lover one would be the black haired guy and lover 2 would be the blonde.

If you don't get a minor arcana card for either of the lovers, you judge which is which by their personality and the description of the card. I hope that makes sense.

I can tell you that card #10 points to the guy with the brown hair, since it is the suit of cups, even if it is reversed. Another reason I say this is because the High Priestess is the black haired fellow's hopes.

On the fact that The Magician is in his hopes is something I would fear. Magician can indicate a time when one is eloquent and charismatic, clever, witty, inventive and persuasive.
Keep in mind, however, that the Magician could be a trickster. If this card represents some magnetic person in the querent's life, they need to make sure that he's or she is a genuine magician, not a con man.

Card #4 indicates the brown haired man. A kinder, gentler, more loving man you'll never meet. His "kingdom" is his family, and his one dream is to be sitting at the head of a huge table filled with kin, kids, grandkids, serving up food to them all.
card #6 indicates that his fears may be any of this list: depression, becoming addicted to something, or suicide (or maybe all of the above)

Card #7 is the black haired guy. Since it is reversed it basically says that he may not have backbone or be the leader type.

card #8 indicates that you should think before you make any huge decision with him.

Card #9 can be taken literally as a card about the querent sobering up from binge drinking or a wild relationship and realizing that it brought him down, made him seem uncivilized and brutal.

Your hopes (card #2) indicates that you wish to have a happy, healthy and prosperous home and family life. Basically that you would like to have your happiness fulfilled. Its a good card for your hope card.

Your querant (asker) card #1 actually shows up when there will be a wedding or completion of something within the relationship. This definately has to do with finding which lover to stay with :D

Your fears card indicates that your fear is basically being lied to, but you knowing that there was something going on the whole time. This lying could be cheating in the relationship which is usually the fear card for almost all askers using this spread. It doesn't mean it will happen, quite the opposite, its just that you have that underlying fear that something will happen that hurts you deeply that you feel like you knew all along.
