Thank you for allowing me to conduct this reading for you.
Your question that you wanted me to answer was: will the relationship you are pursuing at work ever work.
I cannot predict the future, but instead I can look at how you feel towards this person and what you might do to get the relationship started
For this, I did a 3 card reading as set out below:
What you feel about the other person: Knight of Swords
You feel like their knight in shining armour, but the Knight of Swords is known to rush in first and think later; letting their head rule their heart.
Why the relationship hasn’t yet begun: 9 of Wands
The 9 of Wands suggests that you are worried about the future, or possibly, more specially, rejection. It can also indicate a previous bad experience, which is still on your mind now.
What you can do to form a relationship: 10 of Cups
The 10 of cups suggests that you need to make the other person feel safe and secure in your presence. Also, you should ensure that you accept the other person is not perfect and you are able to appreciate them regardless of what your perceive as their flaws.
It seems that although you are keen to start the relationship, for some reason, something (or things) from your past is making you hesitate. Take a look at what this may be, as this seems to be the blockage that’s not only stopping you moving forward, the other person could well be picking up on this. For the immediate future, work on being the supportive friend, don’t pressure, just enjoy some fun times together, do something you both enjoy and get to know each other better.
