I was madly in the process of scribbling some notes on the topic of ‘touch’, taking into account all that I’ve learned over the past few years working with clients when I got a clear message; not everyone understands the deeper resonance of touch or the energetic aspect and its power to heal relationships, whether that be with our self or with others.
The inherent value of human receptors being able to sense physical touch is a remarkable evolutionary tool that helps us to connect and ultimately bond with another living being. This is nature’s way of comforting us, ensuring that a) we procreate and b) we survive well into adulthood. Continue reading

Happy Beltane, Love Doves!
In the Pagan Wheel of the Year, Beltane is a time for love & fertility rituals. Because of this, I wanted to create a spread that was more than just a spread… a spread that can be used to draw the One to you as well as give you information about him (or her) and the how/when. So without further ado, let me introduce you to the May Queen & King Tarot Spread!
On Beltane Eve (that’s tonight!) light a pink candle and invoke the Goddess of Love. Take a moment to focus on your desire for a Soul Mate Lover and shuffle + cut the deck as usual. Continue reading
One of the most common questions I get asked as a Tarot reader is if a lover is right for them… ‘Is he the One?.’ I also sometimes get asked which out of two (or more) lovers is the best match. I must admit I hesitate to answer the question in terms of ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ because someone who is not right for longer term may still be right in terms of bringing a particular lesson…
That said, deep down we all wish that there is a way for us to know beyond any shadow of a doubt that he or she is the right one, the one our soul has been yearning for since as far back as we can remember. The good news is, you do have a way of knowing! All your life, you will have been drawn to one or more specific traits, quirks or characteristics, often without being able to explain why.
For instance, you may be able to look at the shape of a potential partner’s ears and just know that they are ‘wrong’ because in your mind you have a template of your soul mate’s ears. Or you could have a thing for a particular nationality. Continue reading
This post was inspired by a question from a reader. She wanted to know why her ex’s always seemed to get back in touch every time she had found someone new. My reply was:
Oh, it is simple. They feel the energetic connection fading and they want to know why – on a subconscious level of course… but they’ll still act on it!
If you stayed emotionally attached to your ex and found it hard to let go after the break-up, it is likely you had a push-you-pull-me relationship varying from slightly to highly co-dependent where he was in an avoidance pattern (expressed as commitment phobia) and you were in pattern of neediness (often based on abandonment issues).

The Arcturian Tarot
On popular demand, I have decided to hold a Friday Happy Hour Session once a month. Fridays are ruled by Venus, Goddess of Love. In the Tarot, she is represented by The Empress. Above, you’ll see an image of the Empress card from the Arcturian Tarot which is a work in progress that I have had to put on the back burner for now due to being too busy with my readings.
So what’s Happy Hour like here on Love Dove Tarot? Continue reading
