A Fork In The Road | Weekend Love Tarot Reading | 2/12

By February 12, 2021 Tarot Cards

Hi Tarot Family, 

This is Jonathan with your Love Tarot Reading for the weekend. 

The last year has been particularly lonely for a lot of people. As a result of quarantine, your time in isolation has probably felt relieving in some ways, and very challenging in others. 

As you’ll see in today’s reading, this period of being alone is about to break open – potentially into something very special! You might be elated with the idea of meeting someone new, or the thought of a new romance could feel overwhelming. Either way, there is transformation in the air. 

Your first card, the Nine of Pentacles, represents accomplishing what you’ve set out to achieve, and finding peace with yourself. However, you may be feeling a little alone.

That being said, all things change. Your second card, The World, is the last card in the Major Arcana, and indicates an important phase in your life is about to end, and with it, a new beginning.

It’s possible your alone time is about to transform into something very different, and it could be romance. The Emperor card represents a mature individual who is committed and capable.  

Let’s take a look at the cards and find out what, or who, is coming into your life next. 

#1: Nine of Pentacles | Alone But Happy

Are you ready to open the gate to your secret sanctuary? The Nine of Pentacles is a sign you have worked hard, learned to be alone with yourself, and have created a thriving healthy lifestyle. However, you might be a little lonely. 

As you can see on the card, the Nine of Pentacles depicts a well dressed, regal, woman. She is safe within the walls of a beautiful and luscious garden, which she worked hard to create and is now able to enjoy. 

Perhaps you’ve been working on your personal life for some time, and have learned to enjoy solitude. The love you once believed to be the answer to your problems has transformed into a deeper appreciation for yourself and your surroundings. 

The Nine of Pentacles can be a congratulations for building security and freedom for yourself. If you are not currently experiencing a sense of abundance in your finances or inner life, you can expect to start settling into a better situation that may feel like it’s been a long time coming. 

This is a card of maturity and wisdom, where external delights and distractions are no longer a source of joy and pleasure in the same way they once were. Instead, you find yourself more attracted to simple delights and more reliable situations. 

For those of you in a relationship, the Nine of Pentacles can often mean you’re with a partner who doesn’t show up in the relationship, or they are afraid to settle down. While you may have figured out how to make the relationship work with this person, there remains a sense of being alone in the relationship.

Particularly in a love reading, the Nine of Cups means being alone – content in many ways yes, but alone. However, you won’t be alone for long because our next card is telling you there is change coming to you very soon.

You’ve done your due diligence by learning to be alone and finding peace, but this phase is coming to its conclusion. 

#2: The World | Congratulations, You’ve Graduated!

Are you ready for the next chapter in your love life? Either way, your current phase is about to be over, and something new will soon begin. 

The World tends to signal the end of something important, and the beginning of something new. However, this isn’t the kind of chaotic transition signaled by The Tower, nor is it the sudden, and often devastating, transformation indicated by The Death card. 

Rather, The World represents a graduation. It implies greater fullness and contentment. Right now, an integration of seemingly separate elements in your life is occurring. 

You are entering a period of fulfillment, and have an opportunity to choose what it will look like for you. 

If you are single and loving it, you can choose to continue down this path, and trust things will only get better. 

If you are in a relationship, and you’ve felt alone even when you’re with your partner, this is a sign of either coming together, or your readiness to move on. 

The World card is reflective, and celebratory. Whatever you’ve been learning during this past period is being integrated so you can move to the next adventure with all the wisdom you have gained. 

The World, in relation to your first card, the Nine of Pentacles, tells us you are likely going to meet someone very soon. It will be for you to decide if you want to step toward them, or continue on your personal journey alone for now. 

Let’s take a look at your next card, which describes this potential lover, as well as the new qualities you are drawing into your life. 

#3: The Emperor | A Powerful Meeting

Would you like to be with someone established, self aware, and who knows what they want? 

The Emperor has built an entire kingdom and is capable of running it with authority, expertise, and clarity. If you’re single, particularly in a love reading, The Emperor is a sign you may not be single for long. 

A mature, successful individual may be coming into your life in the not too distant future. He or she could be an entrepreneur, an architect, an engineer, or someone who has mastered the material world and the body, such as an athlete or artist. 

This individual is likely to be a little older, and have paternal energy. They will be interested in a committed relationship, and likely make their intention clear from the very start. 

On the other hand, if you’re in a relationship, The Emperor can be a sign you are building a stronger foundation of love together. The commitment between you will deepen, and the sense of security increased. 

If you are feeling content in your single life, and want to keep it that way, on the one hand there might be nothing you can do about it. The heart can move us in unexpected and surprising ways. 

On the other hand, The Emperor may be a sign you are stepping into mastery of your single life, where you feel totally capable of running your own “kingdom”, with skill and efficiency. 

Love is a mysterious phenomena. You can never quite know who will strike a chord deep within your heart. 

The Courage to Meet What’s New

When we grow comfortable and content in the life we are leading, it can feel threatening to open up to love. It takes courage to explore something new and unexpected; to be willing to open up your life to change. 

The Nine of Pentacles is an archetypal Garden of Eden, perhaps representing the peaceful place you have created in your life. However, the woman in the garden is alone. 

Often this can represent yearning for something we don’t have which helps us to explore outside the gates of our comfort zone. Your second card, The World, is a sign there is a phase coming to an end, and you have a choice in what comes next.. 

This next chapter, in regards to your love life, is ultimately in your hands. The Emperor, your third card, is a clear sign someone who is interested in a committed and deep relationship could be entering your life. 

It’s up to you if you want to move forward living a single life, or if you would like to share yourself with someone new. You are in a beautiful transition, regardless of what you choose next. 

With Love, 

And in service, 

Jonathan Lionheart

    First off I must say, I really enjoy reading your readings so thank you. I’ve always been intrigued with astrology and most recently I took it a step farther and is excited to grow and learn more in depth of all aspects of astrology..
    Anyways.. what fears pop up huh… lol I’m a Taurus! So.. ecerything. lol like stability not change. I finally was ok with and convinced myself I’ll be ok if I don’t find my soulmate in this lifetime that way I don’t get hurt or disappointed. As u said though, it’s kinda lonely and I love being in love. Im just horrible at picking good guys out.. lol
    I’ll let ya know either way. How soon is he entering my world? Cause right now there’s not even a maybe on the table.. lol thanks again ✌️

    • Hey Laurie,
      Thanks for sharing. I’ve noticed when we yearn for a soulmate we can often project powerful attributes onto people who really aren’t up to snuff. I tend to recommend people return those feelings and projections back to Spirit or God. That is, these massive feelings of love and yearning, at their core, tend to be our soul yearning for connection with creator. These feeling may show up yearning for union with another, and that’s fine, but recognizing it’s not likely the guy you just met, but life loving life, can help with seeing who you are engaging with as the complicated human they likely are. Sending love

    Thank you.

  • Viviane Paolini says:

    Hi Jonathan, after a heartbreadk I was alone for 4 years, that in the meantime, I have transformed and finally happy even if I am alone, the thing is to accept why, there is a reason. Fear to love again? I am ready when the right guy comes at my door and your reading is telling me he is coming. I must have the strengh to love again and say yes. I know that this is the time.
    Most probably I will ask a reading when the moment is here.
    Thank you for all the emails I receive from you.

  • Char says:

    Hey…. the cards touch on so many seemingly incongruent aspects within romance…what is romance? My fiancé passed away last year (not COVID-19) as my attempts at CPR failed us both… you ask what fears may arise from this reading….. pain. Pain comes up. The distrust of hope…. the disassociation towards vulnerability… the sorrow of loss…. which, ironically, all indicate the depth of the love shared but lost… It requires my willingness to be open to being hurt (crushed, emotionally mutilated, filled with a void of everything and nothing again…), and being prepared to provide space to that opportunity again… romance is not love… romance is an expression, but it does not encompass the entirety of the devotion and commitment…. yeah…well that’s all I have, those are my thoughts….


    • Hey Charlie, thank you for your thoughts, and thank you for sharing. I’m so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine how challenging an experience this must have been for you. I agree, romance is not love, but love can be expressed through romance. May your healing, blooming, and sense of ease come in perfect timing.

      • Char says:

        Thank you…. I was absolutely not happy-prepared to enter the whole “valentines” commercial gobble, but I woke up so…. I just want to acknowledge that you are correct. Romance is not love, but it contributes to the expression of the delicate manifesto of two souls agreeing to become entwined…. as much as I ached and retracted from”what’s out there” I had to make a levelling effort to not take away anyone else’s celebration, enjoyment and “goo-goo-ing” away…& left no word of valentine just acknowledgment that they appreciate each other as well as themselves …. love never deserves to be treated with disdain…. but I definitely just wanted to exit the world and as of almost midnight I’m still unsure if I want to be in tomorrow…. thanks for the reply. It has done more to reassure me of a point in my reality than a lot of moments these last months, it means a lot…
        Cheers, or in the alternative be cheerful


  • Rani says:

    Jonathan, Thank you so much.your Tarot reading gave me a clear direction.Though there’s a fork,I know which path to take.you are spot on..on so many issues and I can’t thank you enough.stay Blessed.

  • Thank you Lionheart , am looking forward to your prediction to come true , no fear or regret , just for soulmate thank you.

  • L says:

    Jonathan you always amaze me! I’ve been ruminating on these issues lately. The first card really resonates—I reunited with my ex, thought we could move forward but then lost contact, I know he is still grieving for his dad but am sad that he cannot lean on me. Feeling alone within a relationship that I thought would lead to commitment is making me—an artist who cherishes solitude—feel truly lonely. I don’t see a fork in the road, I feel stuck, but the optimist in me truly believes in divine surprises and I’m willing to be open to such surprises. It’s been a very difficult day for me, a dark night of the soul, I cry a lot, I’ve asked for simple things and have been ignored, I’m almost afraid to ask for what I want and need after so much disappointment. As for the Emperor card, well this resonates with me for this particular reason—lately I’ve been thinking of studying again, in middle age, and at a highly revered institution that is the epitome of class, elegance, tradition, old money: the very elements of the emperor. An elderly friend assured me that I could meet someone special here, someone smart and successful who could give my ex something to fight for, a rival that will bring out his fire. What a Synchronicity to see this card after having that conversation with my wise friend.
    I am hopeful things will get better, I am open to Mystery!

    • Hey L, thanks for sharing. I always appreciate what you write. Sometimes life gives us what we need in order to grow, regardless of what we think that should be, or how we would like it to feel. That being said, sounds like there are some interesting new possibilities showing up for you. Blessings 🙂

  • Janice Bryce says:

  • Johnathan,
