Anonymous asks: “Am I wasting my time with my significant other?”
The Bosch Tarot deck answers: 9 of Swords.
Short answer: Maybe. Are you willing to risk being hurt again?
While the question is phrased to be answered with a binary Yes/No answer, it is not a binary question in the first place. This is the type of question that leads to a conversation with your reader. The wording implies that you have already given up on the relationship and are seeking permission to follow through with the action you have already begun.
Having said that, the Bosch Tarot’s 9 of Swords speaks to being wounded and violated. It implies to a betrayal in the relationship and the refusal by the betrayer to make amends and/or help heal the consequences of their actions.
The ambiguous answer of the reading is because your question is not one for the cards to answer. Reworded, it becomes: Do you give them another chance with the hopes that this time they will see what they’ve done to you, or do you take note of what they have predictably done over and over and realize they are not going to do anything different now?

The Bosch Tarot is a series of collages based on the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch. Using a unique set of meanings that doesn’t always aligns with Waite, it will sometimes read direct, and sometimes read like a koan. It is a good deck for introspection and examination of internal motives. The Bosch Tarot is presented by Atanas A. Atanassov and ©Lo Scarabeo.
