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

The World 11


Classic meanings: Assured success, recompense, voyage, route, emigration, flight, change of place.

Additional omen for love: He had somehow become your world and you wouldn’t want to live without him. I think this is it.

Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: As this final message of the Major Trumps is unchanged—and indeed unchangeable—in respect of its design, it has been partly described already regarding its deeper sense. It represents also the perfection and end of the Cosmos, the secret which is within it, the rapture of the universe when it understands itself in God (Nature). It is further the state of the soul in the consciousness of Divine Vision, reflected from the self-knowing spirit. But these meanings are without prejudice to that which I have said concerning it on the material side. It has more than one message on the macrocosmic side and is, for example, the state of the restored world when the law of manifestation shall have been carried to the highest degree of natural perfection. But it is perhaps more especially a story of the past, referring to that day when all was declared to be good, when the morning stars sang together and all the Sons of God (Nature) shouted for joy. One of the worst explanations concerning it is that the figure symbolizes the Magus when he has reached the highest degree of initiation, another account says that it represents the absolute, which is ridiculous. The figure has been said to stand for Truth, which is, however, more properly allocated to the seventeenth card. Lastly, it has been called the Crown of the Magi.

Classic meanings: Fair young man, one impelled to render service and with whom the Querent will be connected, a studious youth, news, message, application, reflection, meditation, also these things directed to business.

A special insight for love: Gay sex, one. Straight sex, zero.

Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: A fair, pleasing, somewhat effeminate page, of studious and intent aspect, contemplates a fish rising from a cup to look at him. It is the pictures of the mind taking form.

Queen of cups 66


Classic meanings: Good, fair woman, honest, devoted woman, who will do service to the Querent, loving intelligence, and hence the gift of vision, success, happiness, pleasure, also wisdom, virtue, a perfect spouse and a good mother.

In addition, it means for love: Time for you will be measured by moments when you spoke, and moments when you longed to speak again.

Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: Beautiful, fair, dreamy—as one who sees visions in a cup. This is, however, only one of her aspects, she sees, but she also acts, and her activity feeds her dream.

Justice 72


Classic meanings: Equity, rightness, probity, executive, triumph of the deserving side in law.

The meaning for love is clarified by specific arcanum: When you feel all turned on and horny it’s not love, it’s your sex hormones talking. Nevertheless, you can use those moments to strenghten the relationship.

Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: As this card follows the traditional symbolism and carries above all its obvious meanings, there is little to say regarding it outside the few considerations collected in the first part, to which the reader is referred.

It will be seen, however, that the figure is seated between pillars, like the High Priestess, and on this account it seems desirable to indicate that the moral principle which deals unto every man according to his works—while, of course, it is in strict analogy with higher things—differs in its essence from the spiritual justice which is involved in the idea of election. The latter belongs to a mysterious order of Providence, in virtue of which it is possible for certain men to conceive the idea of dedication to the highest things. The operation of this is like the breathing of the Spirit where it wills, and we have no canon of criticism or ground of explanation concerning it. It is analogous to the possession of the fairy gifts and the high gifts and the gracious gifts of the poet: we have them or have not, and their presence is as much a mystery as their absence. The law of Justice is not, however, involved by either alternative. In conclusion, the pillars of Justice open into one world and the pillars of the High Priestess into another.

Classic meanings: It is a card of loss, but something remains over, three have been taken, but two are left, it is a card of inheritance, patrimony, transmission, but not corresponding to expectations, with some interpreters it is a card of marriage, but not without bitterness or frustration.

The signifficance for love is explained by specific arcanum: If your love doesn’t require any sacrifices, it ain’t love.

Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: A dark, cloaked figure, looking sideways at three prone cups, two others stand upright behind him, a bridge is in the background, leading to a small keep or holding.

This is it for today, traveler.

May the Gods of arcane grant you all your wishes.

May the Love divine be your daily companion.
