This week, we defend Slytherins and we are definitely humans. We also help Cassie figure out what to do with her ex.

Can you be friends with an ex? Should I keep talking to my ex? Cassie

We answered her question using the Linestrider Deck by Siolo Thompson. We both like this one. It has beautiful animal-based artwork done in a loose watercolor style. Brian particularly likes the Fool card, which is an automation.

This Week’s 3-Card Tarot Reading

three card tarot reading—can you be friends with an ex?


Our advice: You’ve recently walked away from something you’d invested a lot of energy in…your relationship (Eight of Cups). We get why you’d ask if you can be friends with your ex. You’ve built that relationship from scratch, and now it’s gone. But right now, it’s time for you to focus on being a better version of yourself (Knight of Coins). Don’t think about your ex or any other potential relationships really. Instead, use your intelligence to focus on what needs to be done. You know what the smart choice is (King of Swords). We all do!

So, can you be friends with an ex? Technically, yes. Should you? We’re not so sure (and neither is the tarot).

This one comes from the Golden Tarot of the Renaissance by Giordano Berti and Jo Dworkin.
