The most popular tarot reading request I get is for Love readings.
Love is a fundamental part of life. We all want it, even those of us that say we don’t. We all need it to improve our well being. And intimate love provides us with a delightful opportunity to grow and communicate and learn more about our selves.
Physical touch is an essential human need. Being caressed releases opiates and oxytocin in the brain, both creating a sense of bliss and necessary for positive bonding. Who doesn’t like bliss? It also lowers the blood pressure. Starting to sound good?
So it’s not surprising that most tarot requests are for love readings.
I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only love – Mother Teresa
What a love tarot can do however, is give you insight into your current emotions, your partners emotions (if you have one).
It can provide you with advice on what you are doing wrong and right. It can draw on habits from the past. It can suggest ways that are beneficial to you.
It can see if the energies you are creating are suitable and which direction to go in. It can tell you how the energies and thoughts of another are effecting you.
It can heal and it can even advise if a positive, fulfilling relationship is surrounding you.
My favorite love tarot spread is a five card reading: past present, future, other person and obstacles/positives, because it is concise and covers all issues.
The reading looks at the influences of the past the current situation and how it may effect the future. The future possibilities and advise on how to achieve them.
The other person’s trait’s and feelings and the positive or negative influences. It can elaborate on the people or person currently in your life, a person from your past or someone in your future, or the possibilities surrounding the three.
Love tarot comes with a healing energy and an affirmation directed by the spirit energies and are conjoured in the reading.
It’s a really gentle way of integrating all your feelings as well as getting sound advise.
