Has their relationship turned into a circus?

The deck used here is:
Tarot of the Zirkus Mägi by Doug Thornsjo      

The spread used here is:

Client: Male

Question: Will my relationship with my girlfriend workout?

Querent's position in the relationship. 
 Angst (9 of blades.) 

The nails in this image are placed close together, and because the weight of a person reclining upon a bed of nails is evenly distributed, these supposed instruments of torture are perfectly safe. Getting onto and off of them is far more dangerous that actually laying on them. Nonetheless they make for a suitable symbol of anxiety. 

His position in this relationship is clearly that of anxiety. Perhaps the relationship with his girlfriend was quickly built on a foundation that felt safe, but once he tested it out, it wasn't as stable as he hoped for. I think that this card symbolizes that he feels like it hurts to be in the relationship as much as it would hurt to get out of it. Maybe the relationship lasted a long time, and for that reason he resents the time he wasted on it?

Querent's partner's position in the relationship. Duchess of Rings. (Queen of Rings.) 

What stands out in this image is the rabbit. The rabbit leaps into our view urging us to be cautious where we stand and where we step next. "Look before you leap" so to speak. 

The Duchess is on a uni-cycle looking confident of her talents, but her arms still out to her side reminding her at any moment she can fall from her seat if she is not careful. 

The stage that she is on is decorated lovely showing her down to earth personality, but it is indeed a bit crowded and not giving her very much room to maneuver around. The smile on her face is also staged, for it has to be imagined first to appear there.

The girlfriends position in the relationship appears to be just as uncomfortable as his. She feels if she stops moving her feet she will fall flat on her face. Her fake smile shows that she is still trying, even if it is hopelessly. 

Basis for the relationship - the past. Opposition. (5 of blades.) 

The two men in this image stand side by side, each of their suits showing the colors of hot and cold. Their body language is showing that each feels the need to protect their own personal space. They are not talking or looking toward one another, but looking directly ahead. 

 The swords around them being 'enablers' of conflict if they were to decide to use them. You can feel the tension as you look at the image. I wonder too if the swords were already used and each is now feeling defeated but unwilling to admit to it verbally?

As for the basis of the relationship's past, it feels like they have long since fizzled out with their romantic feelings toward one another, and are now just living together as room mates, or coexisting. It is as if both are waiting for the next big fight for an excuse to flee the scene. 

What lies between them right now - the present. Winter Quarters. (Ace of rings.) 

The circus is off the road and held safely in their sunny winter quarters. Here is where they regroup and gather their resources and people in preparation for the next years circus. 

This too is where the important staff members decide who goes and who stays or even if continuing the circus is in their best interest.

What lies between them right now in this relationship is their decision to continue on with the relationship or to end it. Maybe even a division of assets between them. 

The future of the relationship. Procession. (3 of batons.) 

The circus parades through town announcing its self to the populace. This is where they make their first introduction to the people and advertise themselves. 

A successful parade is all about appearances and facades. If they look appealing to the crowd, the more spectators will pay admittance to the circus. But if they do not catch the crowds eye, than it could turn out to be a flop. 

If the money isn't there, than the circus can not go on. 

The future of the relationship stand in idle right now. I think that each of them is still trying to maintain a facade in front of their loved ones and family members. It has been a long relationship, and all that is left is to pick whether to go left or right at the end of the road. In relationship to all the cards in this spread, I would say that they should cut their losses while they are ahead. If you truly love someone, sometimes it is best just to let them go. Who wants to live a life dressed up in costumes all the time, and pretending to be happy? How many hours to do you spend putting on make up when you can just be yourself if you let go of the act? If your family members knew that you were this unhappy, the chances are, that they too would want you to make an exit at the next turn. Stop clowning around, and be the person you were meant to be.

Greatest Desires & High School Sweethearts - Reading

Female client. Wants to know if her desire to be with her high school sweetheart will come true?

I have pieced together this spread in hopes that it will shed some light on the subject for her. I am going to call it 'my greatest desire spread.' If you have a high school sweetheart that you are curious about getting together with - let me do a reading for you. Email me and we can discuss details. Only $15.00 USD through paypal.

Is your desire possible to achieve? Ace of scrolls -
This ace says stand fast, sheer determinations and the will to succeed assure your victory. Yes this is a possible achievement.

Is it the best thing for you? 3 of mirrors -
This is the 'do no harm' card. It bodes new romance as long as it does not sacrifice the happiness of someone else.  As long as your high school sweetheart is single, then it will be a good match for you, but if he is not, wait for him instead of trying to break up his current relationship. Think 'Karma.'

If it is attained, will it last? Ace of mirrors -
This card symbolizes a steady flow of creative energy - the two candles. The turtle knows good fortune both on land and in the water. So I would say that this relationship would last if it came together.

Action to take next? Phoenix
This is always a good card to see. It is the dawning of a new day. It symbolizes a time to follow your instincts and intuition. If you do this, there will be a time to reap the rewards. If your instincts tell you to reach out to him gently, then do so. If they tell you just to let him know you are available, then do that. If your instincts tell you after doing so that you need to wait a while, then by all means, listen and wait. If you go against your intuition, it will not be good - so have patience.

Obstacle that may arise? The Weaver
The Weaver sees the world between spaces and darkness, between clarity and confusion, between fear and determination. Her vibrations are in tune with the other side. She helps you sort out chaotic trials and tribulations. If any obstacles arise with this relationship once it is attained, I think that you will get through them with little trouble. It appears that you have already learned many things about being in successful relationships already. Just be aware that people do change over time, and you will indeed have to get to know him all over again, and he will have to do the same with you.

How to get around the obstacle? The Artiste -
The Artiste is a gentle, soft-spoken person sent to inspire you through art, dance, music and poetry. Her painting is your personal journey. In order to make a beautiful painting (journey) you have to take your time and pay attention to details, but don't obsess over them. Too much obsession will keep you from completing your picture! So in order to get around any obstacles that may occur, I suggest tackling them one at a time and not obsessing over them. This too shall pass.

Outcome? 9 of mirrors
The 9 of mirrors is the wish card. You will get your wish. :) Raindrops are falling everywhere, bringing peace, balance, and harmony upon all areas of your life. A very positive outcome.
