“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” ~ Rumi
The above quote by Rumi, and also working in-depth during last weekend’s Tarot conference with answering the Big Questions with only one card under Rachel Pollack‘s wise and guiding eye, made me want to explore a One Card reading for myself about the one question that should concern us more than any other when it comes to love relationships:
What is my main block to love right here, right now?
I chose to work with the Sirian Starseed Tarot for this and pulled the 7 of Cups.
What does the 7 of Cups tell me about my main block to love right now? Off the top of my head, I can think of three things:
* It is quite possible – likely even – that I am deluding myself about certain aspects of my own personal love life.
* It is also possible that clarity can only be gained by going deep into meditation and/or seeking guidance from an external source.
* Past experiences can have tainted how I view love or my possibility of being in a healthy (i.e. non-codependent) love relationship.
I actually believe that there is a strong indication here that I would do well to get a reading from another reader – someone I can trust to be objective!
Someone recently asked me how you can read the cards objectively for yourself and the main guideline is, of course, to read as if you were reading for someone else – preferably writing it all down or recording it so that you can’t change your mind about it later!
Sometimes, even if we pretend we’re reading for someone else, it becomes impossible to be objective enough – I believe pulling the 7 of Cups is a very good indication that subjectivity itself is the issue! No one is immune to needing external guidance every now and again and there is no shame in asking for help.
Oh, and if I were pulling this card for someone else, I would advice them to look at issues of co-dependence. Fer sure. And since those issues aren’t easily resolved, I would possibly even recommend seeking counselling or some other form of help!
