I was cleaning the living room and my decks were never put away when I did a reading the other day. So I pulled out some cards and asked how we related to each other (the layout is the Thoth “relationship game”. It is very useful to understand how to people in any sort of relationship ship as getting along).
The middle card tells you the overall theme of the relationship.
Strength: You may find yourself in a passionate and fiery romance when you draw the Strength card in a love tarot reading. The intense feelings suggested by this card can indicate both a strong relationship and also one that can be prone to anger, jealousy or other emotional explosions. There are both pros and cons with this kind of relationship. Alternatively, Strength’s tarot love meaning is one of compassion, empathy and inner strength; you may find that these qualities are bound to attract the partners that you need, or bring you and your existing partner closer together than ever. Empathy may give you greater insight into both yours and your partner’s needs and insecurities. Should you find yourself in an argument or in heated moments, it may be better for you to treat each other with patience and gentleness, rather than allowing your anger to take control.
(Left me, right him)
The page of wands + nine of cups in the position of how we encounter each other (and/ or how we assess the relationship: When we see the Page of Wands, we see a youth with enormous excitement and curiosity for the world. He knows what to do, he has the passion to succeed, but due to his inexperience and maybe a little fear of the unknown, his ideas remain abstract. He identifies new worlds to explore, new opportunities he could take advantage of quite easily, and he is even gifted with the “big picture” vision needed to succeed. Even with all of this, he still has the tendency to either remain dormant or get easily distracted with one idea after the other.
Appreciate what you have when the 9 of Cups appears. Wishes here are meant to come true, and it is best to look forwards to the future with gratitude. There is much to celebrate, go and enjoy yourself; now is not the time to be calculating or strategising about your goals, but instead, simply have fun. Lightheartedness can draw others to you.
three of swords + eight of cups in the position of the emotional realm, hopes & fears.
The Three of Swords depicts the message of rejection, betrayal, hurt and discouragement. In moments like these, we are well served by the mind. If you can think logically about it and prepare for the experience, the impact of this pain may be minimized.
But remember too, that pain and grief are a normal part of life because they make us appreciate what joy and happiness we have, as well as teaching us. It is through the pain that we learn to avoid mistakes that could lead us into danger and grief. It is therefore a necessity in the journey of life. The Three of Swords therefore is a depiction of suffering that is meant to make us stronger, more careful and more vigilant.
The Eight of Cups signifies a time for change or transition, by means of walking away from something. Just like a caterpillar has to die before transforming into a beautiful butterfly, we all need to transform ourselves in our lives from time to time. This is the case especially after being tired of living what was the day today, and embarking on a journey that will help one have a deeper understanding of life in general.
Getting the upright side of this card shows that you are dissatisfied with your life and need to experience a higher purpose in life. You may have been exploring your options, flitting about from one choice to another, tasting the wine in each cup, as a means to sort out what it is that you really want with your life. You are now experiencing a feeling of exhaustion – and are coming to a realization that you must step away from what is familiar. It is a choice and a recognition that true happiness will not be found in what you have already created.
five of wands + judgement signify our behaviour, a façade, perhaps shown to the outside world. these feelingsare independent of the thoughts of the upper cards: Action is required of you now when it comes to your love life. If you’re single, you may find that the one you desire can have many suitors, and you may have to compete for their affection. Make sure not to be carried away by this, and become too forceful; this can discourage your potential partner instead of drawing them closer. Should you already be in a relationship, there may be some small conflicts. Beware that what initially starts off as playful banter can turn into explosive arguments when either of you are stressed. It’s likely the arguments here are not too serious. Nonetheless, they will require some lightheartedness to remember how inconsequential they actually are to your happiness. Keep things playful.
Now is the time to take a closer look at your love life and figure out what needs to be changed. The Judgement tarot love meaning indicates a time of self-reflection and analysis initiated by an awakening. Issues in your love life that you once ignored may be seen clearly now, and you have the chance to make adjustments. Keep communication with your partner open, and make sure both of you are aware of each other’s needs. Small changes that the two of you make together can have a great effect on your relationship. Your past actions and their consequences, whether good or bad, are catching up with you now. If you’ve made mistakes in the past, use the lessons you’ve learned to make changes for your future.
Well, 😂 fuck.
