Love. A many-layered and complex thing that can’t really be described in words and yet it plays a crucial part in our lives. It brings euphoria and joy, and yet also darkness and despair.
We as humans experience the highs and lows of love and the wonders it beholds, the deep penetrating feeling of love itself, the despair we undergo when love casts a shadow, and the depths to which we are willing to go in order to experience the deepest form of love.
Love is a feeling, the greatest of all feelings, and therefore it needs no words.
But it can be helpful to have a little assistance as we navigate the waters of love. Here, Tarot can be extremely helpful.
How Tarot Can Help You With Love & Relationships
Tarot is a form of divination. It speaks a language that the soul understands. It is not so straightforward that the mind understands it fully, but our souls understand.
We understand creativity, imagery and card meanings. Our soul understands intuition and messages from the universe that are intended to guide us. Through Tarot, our soul has a much easier job of understanding things that our minds can barely scratch the surface of!
Intuition is an important factor to take in when reading Tarot cards. Too much critical thinking, too much logic and too much analysis – too much cerebral thinking, in other words, can lead to a blockage of intuition.
This is why it’s important to spend some time meditating and clearing your mind before reading the cards. It is also strongly advised to spend time in a quiet area, especially in nature, to help replenish your energies. Working with incense and crystals can also set the mood for a Tarot reading.

When it comes to love, we often have loads of questions going around and around in our minds. One of them is often how the person we are interested in, or our significant other, feels about us.
Gaining an idea of where we stand can be an agonising experience as we wonder how they feel for us and where they want the relationship to go. Of course, the best thing to do would just be to ask them – but then, it’s never quite as simple as that!
When you consult the Tarot, remember that nothing is set in stone. The Tarot is a guide, one that can help you make the right decisions. It is there to help and assist you.
With this type of reading, some readers may question if it is OK for you to ask about another’s feelings for you. If you have concerns about this, sit and meditate for a while and consult your Higher Self. Your Higher Self will let you know if this is something that can be beneficial for you and if it is a good idea to proceed.
