The Love Tarot allows you to analyze your current relationships and predict what the future holds for your relationships. Know the message of the Arcana for your sentimental and emotional life.
The Tarot is a game that, through the meaning of its Cards, helps us better understand the past, the moment we live in the present, and foresee the future. Like other prints, the Love Tarot allows us to perceive how our emotions are and become aware of the aspects that we need to mature and think better about what we want for our sentimental life.
The Tarot as Oracle
Throughout the ages, Letters have served to give us indications about what is happening at the present moment in our lives and to predict how our affairs may develop in the future. However, it is important to emphasize that, despite the reading and the indications that may be given through the Letters, our destiny is in our hands.
In the Tarot of Love, for example, the Cards we choose can tell us that a new person will emerge in our life, but it is up to us to be attentive to the signs that indicate that this person crossed paths with us at a certain time or place.
In the same way, when we want to know if a certain relationship will have a future or not, what we do, as a couple is decisive for the outcome. It is of little use that the Letters are favorable if nothing is done together to make the relationship work. This notion of free will is increasingly important in the reading and interpretation of the Oracles, regardless of the problems or the area of life that most concerns us.
The Tarot of Love and the Meaning of the Cards
The meaning and the figures of each of the Tarot Cards are associated with our inner wisdom. That is why it is said that the reading of the Letters is, essentially, intuition. After knowing the archetypes of the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana, we can find new answers that allow us to understand our current situation. As you get to know each of the Cards better, you will intuitively find new meanings that you will be able to adjust to your current circumstances easily.
Through the Letters and the answers you get through your reading, you will be able to think and reflect on the present, your priorities, what moves you, and what makes you happy. Or what you would like to have in your life to be happy. This is how the Tarot of Love should be used - to find the answers within yourself.
The Tarot Reading of Love
Reading the Love Letter is very important. As social beings that we are, all relationships and, in particular, those of a loving nature can affect the way we face all other areas of our life.
The selected Cards can give us clues, depending on the Card, for love and relationships in general:
- Cups - This Card indicates that you are, or will be, blessed in love.
- Wands - This Card suggests a strong and solid relationship. The loyalty and trust that they place in each other are fundamental to the atmosphere of love and tenderness that they share.
- Golds - The relationship may be struggling due to jealousy. This Card also suggests that the two of you have very different lifestyles and that you both have to dedicate yourself to the relationship to function.
- Swords - In a current relationship, bad temper and discord can prevail. A new partner may offer you more.
Already in relationships in which there is a commitment, such as marriage or a partnership, the reading can be done from another perspective:
- Cups - Shows a happy relationship based on empathy and mutual interests. There is understanding, and both are careful with each other’s feelings and needs.
- Wands - Suggests a friendship that turns into love. The relationship may also take on a strong practical or financial aspect.
- Golds - Suggests that one or both of the couples feel insecure in the relationship. It can be jealousy caused by inattention or different expectations.
- Swords - Suggests infidelity and mistrust. Separation may be a possibility if communication is not re-established. It takes effort from both of you to clarify things and give the relationship a new chance.
The Card of Cups in the Tarot
The traditional Tarot deck is made up of 78 Cards, with two different decks combined into one. They are the 22 Major Arcana (Triumphs or Major Mysteries) and the 56 Minor Arcana grouped into four cards: Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles.
Each Card has its own energies, transmitted by the Primordial Elements they are associated with and the very symbiology of the archetype they represent. The Cup card focuses on emotions and love, romance and relationships, friendships, domestic life, and socialization.
The Message of the Major Arcana in the Tarot of Love
Each Letter brings a message that must be interpreted according to the circumstances of each one’s life. Since change is the only constant in an absolute way, our life changes every day. The result of a reading done today may not make sense in a few days. See each message as a way to reflect on your present moment, energy, and what you want for your future.
This list follows the order of the Marseille deck. In relation to the Rider Waite, you only have to consider the change of position of two Cards (” Justice ” and ” The Force “). However, the symbiology of these does not change, the message being valid when using one or another deck.
