Be quiet, stranger. I do not wish to harm you… but if you value your life – make no sudden moves. You will not speak before I speak.
When you come to me, you must remember that with light comes shadows. Darkness follows light, and light follows darkness. Here, you will find both.
My name is Deandra, The Duchess of Dunsinane, and I will help guide you through both the light and the dark of your mind.
Please, for your own sake – maintain complete silence until I give you a sign.
The Duchess of Dunsinane will delve into the very depths of your soul to bring forth your deepest desires.
Come, sit down. Let’s reveal your destiny.

The signifficance for love is explained by specific arcanum: I believe in love at first sight, and I believe that’s what you are going to have.

Additional omen for love: Talking quietly together. This is what the couples do. Getting his reassurance. Giving him the same.
Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: A youth and maiden are pledging one another, and above their cups rises the Caduceus of Hermes, between the great wings of which there appears a lion’s head. It is a variant of a sign which is found in a few old examples of this card. Some curious emblematical meanings are attached to it, but they do not concern us in this place.
