Dating the Knight of Cups

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

The Pages – Messengers of Love

The Pages are often said to represent students or children in general. However, they can also be seen as messages and in Love Tarot readings, they often show up when someone has received or is about to receive a message. This is especially true together with the 8 of Wands or the Ace of Swords.

Each Page can be seen as a representative for their Element, so naturally the romantic messages conveyed by the Pages will have their own unique flavour. Below you will find some examples of the types of messages you can expect from each of the four Pages in the Tarot deck: Continue reading

Sensitive and caring, this man is often found working as a caretaker in some capacity. He could be a counsellor or a male nurse, a psychiatrist, tarot reader or a massage therapist. One thing is for certain, he is definitely in touch with his feminine side!

Intimacy is everything to this guy. He enjoys discussions about feelings the way an ordinary bloke enjoys a game of football and he’s also heavily drawn to anything mysterious. And before you ask – Yes, he’s a rare find!

Why? Because emotional maturity and genuine care about others come at a cost… especially for a man! How will a boy who is told that he is being a girl when he cries grow up with his feminine side integrated without shame or guilt?

Unfortunately, traits that are perceived as feminine in boys are still ridiculed by society and that is the real reason why there are so few men who feel comfortable owning their emotions. Continue reading

Dating the Knight of Pentacles

Mr Dependable is an apt nick name for this courtier. He more than makes up for his lack of high flying aspirations by his hard work and stickability… or he does if you’re looking for a steady, no frills, long term relationship. Think ‘The Shire’ and simple pleasures… such as food and drink. And more food.

Most akin to the Taurean male astrologically, he’s a man of the senses but not so much of any sense superseding the regular five. He’s prone to scoff at anything ‘supernatural.’ Unlike the Knight of Swords, he won’t be inclined to argue his (lack of) beliefs. He’d rather get on with polishing his bike or mowing the lawn.

In the ole’ dating game, he relies on looks and ‘maleness’ in the traditional sense. The type of girl most likely to be attracted to him is the girlie girl who is more interested in the size of a man’s bicpecs package and/or bike than his conversational skills. Continue reading

Eclectic Tarot

A natural-born leader, this guy is the Master of the Fire Element . If it is one thing he’s not short on it’s confidence.  But where will his confidence take him? Will he be on stage doing stand-up comedy or is he busy organising the next coup d’etat?

And what about intimacy? How important you are to him may ultimately be determined by how willing you are to share his vision. Continue reading
