Hello Tarot Love Birds,
While it may be too early to blame this romantic energy on spring, there is clearly something in the air.
The Knight of Cups is one of our most romantic cards in the deck, and it could be a sign of a new love in your life.
While The High Priestess isn’t traditionally considered a romantic card, her wisdom around taking care of yourself and your relationships is very helpful.
Finally, the ‘creme de la creme’ of love cards, the Two of Cups, finishes off the reading this week, with promises of harmonious and spicy love connections.
This is a very special love reading, I hope you enjoy what the cards have to say.
#1: Knight of Cups | This Might Be the One
Did you just start a new relationship? Have you been yearning to be swept off your feet? The Knight of Cups is nearly a perfect symbol of the classic ‘knight in shining armor.’
He is brave, honest, and wears his heart on his sleeve. If you’ve recently met someone, this is a great sign they are a good match for you. You can look forward to a fulfilling connection, and a healthy dose of romance soon to come.
If you’re already in a long term committed relationship, you can expect your significant other to display their devotion through romantic gestures, and loving attention.
This warm, creative, and emotionally intelligent Knight brings with him a sense of safety and ease. The love and trust between you and your lover could be entering a very special period.
On the other hand, if you are single, it’s quite possible you’ll be meeting someone soon. This person will be able to meet you with emotional maturity and depth.
This is either something you have been waiting for and you’re ready to accept, or it may feel a little daunting if you haven’t been ready to open your heart again yet.
Regardless of whether you are either single or coupled, your next card is a reminder to let love happen of its own accord, without forcing anything to happen.
#2: The High Priestess | Letting Love Bloom
Have you been reaching for love, hoping someone will show up in your life? Has your relationship felt like it’s lacking something lately?
The High Priestess tends to arrive in a reading when we need to listen to our intuition, and to go inward to the source of our own wisdom.
In a love reading, The High Priestess is asking something similar. She wants to remind you that love happens in it’s own timing.
Maybe you are with someone now, but it feels like the spark has gone. Or you are single and waiting, trying to force things to happen in a certain way.
You might have expectations about how your love life should be: that your partner should act a certain way, or the relationship should be headed in a particular direction. These expectations can generate discomfort, cause unspoken tension, and create a sense there is something wrong with the relationship, or wrong with you.
Instead of going down this path, now is a good time to tune into your intuition and to listen to what you know in your heart. The High Priestess is encouraging you to trust the perfect timing of love, not to push, but to let it bloom in its own way.
Loving someone unconditionally does not mean sacrificing yourself. Rather, authentically sharing yourself with another can be a natural, and mutually joyful experience. Your next card is a sign of exactly this kind of soulful, loving relationship heading your way.
#3: Two of Cups | Soulful Connection
Are you ready for deep and lasting love? Have you allowed yourself to fall in love with life again? The Two of Cups is a prolific lovers card that radiates harmony and balance.
Anyone who has worked with Tarot cards knows how beautiful it can be to draw the Two of Cups. This card is renowned for its juicy romantic implications.
The image on the card has a man and woman, gazing fearlessly into each other’s eyes. Above them, the caduceus symbol of two serpents weaving together, symbolizes the combining of the masculine and feminine.
At the top of the card is a Chimera: a lion with wings on either side of its head. This is a powerful symbol of passion and sacred desire.
While the Two of Cups can indicate deep and lasting friendship or non-romantic connections, in a love reading, it certainly implies a deep and passionate romance.
You may be reaching a new stage in your current relationship. Particularly if you heed the wisdom of The High Priestess, and trust the perfect timing of love, your relationship could be in the process of becoming a once in a lifetime romance.
On the other hand, if you are single right now, your next romantic connection could be particularly special.
That being said, this kind of love tends to surprise people when they aren’t expecting it. This is why listening to The High Priestess’ guidance by practicing patience and trust is important here.
The symbolism in the Two of Cups is related to western alchemy. It can be viewed as a minor Connunctio, which means internal union. Your own masculine and feminine are being called to enter a romance – that is, to fall in love with yourself again.
Then, when you least expect it, someone could knock on your door who is ready to be with you in the way you deserve and desire.
Exciting, isn’t it?
What a love filled reading! While no one fully knows what will happen next, it seems pretty clear you are entering a very special romantic period.
No one understands romance like the Knight of Cups, who brings forward emotional depth, kindness, and the type of chivalry you see in fairy tales.
Regardless of whether you are in a relationship right now and remembering how lucky you are, or if you are single, The High Priestess is reminding you to trust your intuition.
Let love move at it’s own pace, and give it room to show up the way life wants it to.
You can’t manufacture authentic loving connections. While they require attention, nurturance, and a willingness to grow, relationships can’t be pushed into being something they’re not.
Luckily, the Two of Cups is a good sign you are either entering a deeply loving relationship, or truly connecting with love deep within yourself.
And in service,
