Romance, Love Or Relationships

A very common modern use of the tarot is to help clarify issues that are on your mind. The most common areas of concern by far are love, relationships and romance. What’s in the cards for your love life? Everyone likes to know where their love lives are going, what will happen to their romantic relationships, and if they will be happy. In a Love Tarot Reading, the major arcana, associated with major influences and events in your life, often play the most important role. Aces in a love reading indicate new beginnings.

Directing your love reading to another: Think of a person you love. Next think of a person for whom you have no strong feelings. And then also think of a person who challenges you, or you have difficulty with, or cannot easily get on with. As you think of these people direct your words thoughts towards each in turn. Visualise energy flowing to the person you are contemplating.

Timing: When looking for time sensitive answers, Swords generally means moderately fast, often a matter of days to weeks.



The Original Rider Waite Tarot Deck is the most popular and widely used tarot card deck in the world, printed from plates that were destroyed during the bombing of London during World War II. Full of symbolism and deeper meanings, Arthur E. Waite, the intellectual father of the Rider Waite deck, commented that ‘the true Tarot is symbolism; it speaks no other language and offers no other signs.’

If a Swords card appears in you reading, heres what you need to know:

The Suit of Swords is associated with action, change, force, power, oppression, ambition, courage and conflict. Action can be both constructive and/or destructive, sometimes resulting in violence. This suit can also mean hatred, battle, and enemies, and of all the suits, this one is considered to be the most powerful and dangerous. The Suit of Swords deals with the mental level of consciousness that is centred around the mind and the intellect. Swords mirror the quality of mind present in your thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs. Swords themselves are double-edged and in this way the Suit of Swords symbolises the fine balance between intellect and power and how these two elements can be used for good or evil. As such, the Swords must be balanced by spirit (Wands) and feeling (Cups). The negative aspects of the Suit of Swords (i.e. when the Swords cards appear reversed) include anger, guilt, harsh judgement, a lack of compassion and verbal and mental abuse.

Ideas, communication, mental dexterity, mental challenges, talking, writing, truths/untruths.

Timing: When looking for time sensitive answers, Swords generally means moderately fast, often a matter of days to weeks.

Book Details
Complete Book of Tarot: before we can address the question of where the tarot originated, we must clarify what we mean by the tarot. The Oxford Dictionary gives the following definition of tarot: ‘playing cards, traditionally a pack of 78 with five suits, used for fortune-telling and (especially in Europe) in certain games. The suits are typically swords, cups, coins (or pentacles), batons (or wands), and a permanent suit of trump.’2 We will examine this definition more carefully in the next chapter. For now, let’s focus on where these seventy-eight cards came from.

Elements of the Psychic World: Modern interest in the concept of the psychomanteum was triggered by Dr Raymond Moody, who coined the term near-death experience. Moody first became interested in mirror gazing in the late 1980s and began to investigate ancient oracular practices and folklore about mirrors as portals to other dimensions. He eventually came to the conclusion that a mirror could be of benefit to those grieving the loss of loved ones, as the mirror, as a portal to the otherworld, could help bring closure. As he continued to research he considered the visions in a mirror to be more than imagery as they could take a person into the middle realm – another dimension, similar to dreams, which mediates between the physical realm and other realms.
