The Sun, Priestess, Hangman. Chariot, Judgment, and Empress.

Last night during happy hour at the hotel there was a man doing Tarot card readings. The Boyfriend and I both had it done.

For me; The Sun, The Priestess, and The Hangman.
According to the reader this meant that I am naturally a happy person and attract happy people to me. That I am a hostess who enjoys learning and is constantly changing. My future is uncertain but I will follow my heart and my intelligence and do something I enjoy.

For The Boyfriend; The Chariot, The Judgment, and The Empress.
According to the reader this meant that he had achieved great things in his past. That he had a new awareness that would cause his to achieve ultimate success and bring success to those around him. That he would help people.

I did a little more checking online and got a bit more explaination on each. They both seem pretty right on for us, but what do you think?
The Sun: A positive card, it promises a day in the sun. Glory, gain, triumph, pleasure, truth, success. The Sun so large and golden overhead, this is the first time that he has been simply and purely happy. His mind feels illuminated, his soul light and bright as a sunbeam

The Priestess:
The card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. Her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know in order to make a decision.

The Hangman: indicates sacrifice. Often, he hangs like on ominous signpost in the road - strange and new happenstances around the next corner. However, the Hanged Man usually shows up to inform you that you will be seeing and understanding things in an entirely new way.

The Chariot: On its most basic level, it implies war, a struggle, and an eventual, hard-won victory; either over enemies, obstacles, nature, the beasts inside you, or to just get what you want On the one hand, the Chariot indicates loyalty and faith and motivation; a conviction that will lead to victory no matter the odds. But the chariot can also signal a ruthless, diehard desire to win at any cost.

The Judgment: This is also a card of healing, quite literally from an accident or illness, as well as a card signaling great transformation, renewal, change. Judgment signals just a big change, one that involves leaving something old completely behind and stepping into something completely new. Like closing the door on an old job, and opening the door to a new and very different career. But it's also about making a final decision.

The Empress: She's Mother. Generally, Mother in a good sense, patient, loving, giving, generous This card tells that if they want a new creation to grow into all it can be they have to pay attention to it, baby it and be willing to let it take those first steps when it is ready. Most of all, like any pregnant mother or good gardener, they have to be patient. All things need time to gestate and sprout.
