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 Chariot 61


Classic meanings: Succor, providence, also war, triumph, presumption, vengeance, trouble.

In relation to love and feelings, this card has additional arcanum: The slowest kiss makes too much haste.

Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: An erect and princely figure carrying a drawn sword and corresponding, broadly speaking, to the traditional description which I have given in the first part. On the shoulders of the victorious hero are supposed to be the Urim and Thummim. He has led captivity captive, he is conquest on all planes—in the mind, in science, in progress, in certain trials of initiation. He has thus replied to the Sphinx, and it is on this account that I have accepted the variation of Eliphas Lévi, two sphinxes thus draw his chariot. He is above all things triumph in the mind.

It is to be understood for this reason (a) that the question of the sphinx is concerned with a Mystery of Nature and not of the world of Grace, to which the charioteer could offer no answer, (b) that the planes of his conquest are manifest or external and not within himself, (c) that the liberation which he effects may leave himself in the bondage of the logical understanding, (d) that the tests of initiation through which he has passed in triumph are to be understood physically or rationally and (e) that if he came to the pillars of that Temple between which the High Priestess is seated, he could not open the scroll called Tora, nor if she questioned him could he answer. He is not hereditary royalty and he is not priesthood.

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.

This is it for today, traveler.

May the Gods of arcane grant you all your wishes.

May the Love divine be your daily companion.
