How To Read Love Tarot

Always remember the Number One and the Most Important Rule of all: in Love and in War there are no rules

You will find 5 Tarot cards below. Turn them and see what you get. 

Then, take a deep breath and let your heart and intuition decide. It is that simple.

The 5-card Tarot spread is based on the American (Rider-Waite) Tarot. The cards are from the original deck published in 1910 – no more, nor less – 110 years old.

Oh, so many hands have shuffled those cards! Oh, so many souls have searched for meaning in their layouts! You are not alone looking for love in their arcane universe. 

Step I. Turn the cards in order to see your love omens for today.  

Step II. You will notice a small message card attached to every tarot card. These messages are called “specific arcanum”. They will help you interpret the meanings of the base tarot cards.

Step III. Click the cards for the second time to get a classic American (Rider-Waite) Tarot explanation of their meanings. 

Step IV. Finally – concentrate for a minute. Look at the cards, then look into your soul, look into the depths of your thoughts and mental connections.  That’s where the real magic of the tarot reading hides. And that’s where you will find the best insights

SHUFFLE

6 OF SWORDS INTERPRETATION

Classic meanings: Journey by water, route, way, envoy, commissionary, expedient.

In this tarot spread the card has complementary explanation: You know exactly what it takes. It’s about loyalty and kindness and unconditional love, and you are more than capable of all that.

Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: A ferryman carrying passengers in his punt to the further shore. The course is smooth, and seeing that the freight is light, it may be noted that the work is not beyond his strength.

QUEEN OF SWORDS INTERPRETATION

Classic meanings: Widowhood, female sadness and embarrassment, absence, sterility, mourning, privation, separation.

Concerning love, this card is clarified by: What is it like to be the most important person to someone else? Do you think you can learn?

Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: Her right hand raises the weapon vertically and the hilt rests on an arm of her royal chair, the left hand is extended, the arm raised, her countenance is severe but chastened, it suggests familiarity with sorrow. It does not represent mercy, and, her sword notwithstanding, she is scarcely a symbol of power.

KNIGHT OF CUPS INTERPRETATION

Classic meanings: Arrival, approach—sometimes that of a messenger, advances, proposition, demeanor, invitation, incitement.

In addition, it means for love: I like the way you kiss – a couple of test kisses, then a huge kiss.

Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: Graceful, but not warlike, riding quietly, wearing a winged helmet, referring to those higher graces of the imagination which sometimes characterize this card. He too is a dreamer, but the images of the side of sense haunt him in his vision.

THE HIGH PRIESTESS INTERPRETATION

Classic meanings: Secrets, mystery, the future as yet unrevealed, the woman who interests the Querent, if male, the Querent herself, if female, silence, tenacity, mystery, wisdom, science.

In relation to love and feelings, this card has an additional arcanum: You are something exquisite. You’re like that single wild flower that grows from the crack in the pavement.

Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: She has the lunar crescent at her feet, a horned diadem on her head, with a globe in the middle place, and a large solar cross on her breast. The scroll in her hands is inscribed with the word Tora, signifying the Greater Law, the Secret Law and the second sense of the Word. It is partly covered by her mantle, to show that some things are implied and some spoken. She is seated between the white and black pillars—J. and B.—of the mystic Temple and the veil of the Temple is behind her: it is embroidered with palms and pomegranates. The vestments are flowing and gauzy, and the mantle suggests light—a shimmering radiance. She has been called Occult Science on the threshhold of the Sanctuary of Isis, but she is really the Secret Church, the House which is of God (Nature) and man. She represents also the Second Marriage of the Prince who is no longer of this world, she is the spiritual Bride and Mother, the daughter of the stars and the Higher Garden of Eden. She is, in fine, the Queen of the borrowed light, but this is the light of all. She is the Moon nourished by the milk of the Supernal Mother.

In a manner, she is also the Supernal Mother herself—that is to say, she is the bright reflection. It is in this sense of reflection that her truest and highest name in bolism is Shekinah—the co-habiting glory. According to Kabalism, there is a Shekinah both above and below. In the superior world it is called Binah, the Supernal Understanding which reflects to the emanations that are beneath. In the lower world it is Malkuth—that world being, for this purpose, understood as a blessed Kingdom—that with which it is made blessed being the Indwelling Glory. Mystically speaking, the Shekinah is the Spiritual Bride of the just man, and when he reads the Law she gives the Divine meaning. There are some respects in which this card is the highest and holiest of the Greater Arcana.

KING OF SWORDS INTERPRETATION

Classic meanings: Whatsoever arises out of the idea of judgment and all its connections—power, command, authority, militant intelligence, law, offices of the crown, and so forth.

In relation to love and feelings, this card has additional arcanum: Late twenties, single, female. Do the math.

Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: He sits in judgment, holding the unsheathed sign of his suit. He recalls, of course, the conventional Symbol of Justice in the Trumps Major, and he may represent this virtue, but he is rather the power of life and death, in virtue of his office.

This is it for today, traveler.

May the Gods of arcane grant you all your wishes.

May the Love divine be your daily companion.
