In last week’s 11 Keys – An Advanced Love Tarot Spread, I briefly mentioned the ‘Karmic Cards’ and I was asked by a couple of people to extrapolate on this. Essentially, these are the cards that indicate issues either carrying over from a past life (or many past lives) or lessons pre-agreed upon in the Life Between Lives. For those of you interested in exploring Life Between Lives, I recommend the book Journey of Souls by Dr Michael Newton.
A while back, I created a Past Life Connection Tarot spread. Before laying the cards out for this type of reading, I like to do a 9 Square to see if there is an indication of a past life connection. I want at least two of the cards listed below to show up. Continue reading
Emotional cheating has exploded onto the scene as the number one threat to long term committed relationships, with the social media revolution and (re)connecting with ‘friends’ and ex lovers on Facebook and other social media networks.
It all starts innocently enough, or so we tell ourselves. But the truth is that even before we start testing the waters with other person, we know that something is not quite right with the dynamic of the relationship we are in. We feel unhappy and discontented… perhaps even disconnected from the one we supposedly love, whether a spouse or a long term partner. Either way, the deep emotional connection we long for is missing.
Three common reasons for this state of discontentment/emotional disconnect are: Continue reading
The more of an emotional connection you have with the Tarot cards, the better a reader you will be. The emotional connection with the cards is even more important when you read on love and romance, because in these types of readings, each of the 78 cards becomes a key which unlocks hidden emotional truths.

MUMMY’S BOY - This one still lives at home at age 44. He’ll have very good excuses for doing so (divorce/unemployment etc), including being close to his mother. But this is not a man who loves his mother – it’s someone with an unhealthy tie to his mother, which is making him dangle from her apron strings in one way or another. There are quite a few of these who actually hate their mother and make no secret of it, yet they seem incapable of breaking free.
How he’ll make your life hell: On some level he will always be comparing you to her. If he loves her, you will never be good enough and if he hates her, he will keep spotting similarities between you.
What he looks like in the Tarot: Continue reading
Looking to date an über romantic guy? Need your man to compose his own love poems for you? The Knight of Cups is the guy for you!
This is the man who as a young boy used to include a handwritten poem in the Mother’s Day card. He is the one who used to get scolded for daydreaming by his teachers, but who stunned the very same teachers with his imaginative art, writing or musical composition.
Often quite shy with the opposite sex, he’s a later bloomer when it comes to dating and getting to any sort of ‘base.’ However, once he gets a handle on lurve, he’s firmly stuck on romance. He’ll never be single for any longer periond of time after that. And if he does have singledom enforced on him, he’s constantly yearning for and jonesing after the ever-elusive ‘One.’ Continue reading
