Heart Healing

Kintsugi for the Broken Heart

Kintsugi for the Broken Heart

There is an ancient Japanese tradition of mending broken pottery with gold-enriched resin, which is said to render the object more beautiful than before it was broken.

This is such a beautiful thought when we consider all the broken hearts on this planet that have been healed by the power of love.

They are indeed more beautiful, more compassionate and also stronger than before they were broken.

The Kintsugi allegory lends itself beautifully to a Kintsugi for the Broken Heart Tarot spread:

Kintsugi for the Broken Heart Tarot Spread

1. The force that broke the heart: The cause of your heart-break
2. The process of gold joinery: How your healing process is progressing
3. The craftsman’s hand: What you can do to help the process along
4. How your heart will be more beautiful once it has healed.

  1. Hi! I’ve been trying to get more involved with the healing spreads as I am still harboring a lot of emotion from my previous relationship ending.

    In this spread I got:
    1. 10 of cups
    2. 3 of pentacles
    3. 2 of wands
    4. 8 of swords

    I’m really confused on the 8 of swords being the way my heart will be more beautiful once it has healed. Doesn’t this mean trapping oneself? I can’t figure out how to read this card in a positive light in correlation to the spread. If you could help me with this card, that would be great. I’m so confused! Lol.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts, feedback and questions. Please note that, while I'm happy to answer questions about individual cards, I don't interpret spreads. I get several requests every day about interpreting DIY readings based on my spreads. Even if I had the time, I don’t think it would be a wise investment of my time to ‘read on readings’ – A reading is done in synergy between the cards, the question and the reader… in the MOMENT.
