Last week I posted a post on Seer Pathways, titled 22 Things I Want in a Lover. As you may have guessed it was inspired by both confessional singer/song writer Alanis Morissette and the Tarot Major Arcana.
But what about the shadier side of the Majors? What if they show up reversed or poorly aspected in a position of a spread that reveals the traits and characteristics of a possible lover?
Can the cards help us detect warning signs of trait we do not want before it is too late? They sure can!
(Humour warning! Take seriously at your own peril.)
Look out for these 22 warning signs:
The Fool – He may very well be stoopid. Unless you’re of less than average intelligence yourself, you’re probably not a good match. Continue reading

The Tarot is known as the Book of Life and consists of two parts: The Major and Minor Arcana (Arcanum means deep secret wisdom). As you begin to unravel the mystery of the Tarot, you find that each Arcanum is a key that can help you unlock the secret to success in any area of your life.
Mostly when people come for a love and relationship Tarot reading, they want to know if the one they love loves them back, if he or she will come back, if they will get married, when they will meet ‘The One’ etc… Very few people have realised the value of using the Tarot proactively, for manifesting the kind of relationship they dream of. Instead they move from one relationship to the next without transforming the underlying beliefs that re-create the same dynamic and scenarios over and over again.
As always, it comes down to the question you choose to ask.
He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes; he who does not ask a question remains a fool forever. ~ Chinese Proverb
The sort of questions you would ask of the Tarot to unlock the potential to transform old outdated beliefs would for example be ‘What am I doing that is not working?’, ‘What qualities am I projecting onto my partner?’, ‘How can I make this relationship work?’, ‘How can I heal and prepare myself for a soulmate relationship?’, ‘What do I need to know about the dynamic we have created in this relationship?’ or ‘How am I responsible for creating this dynamic and what can I do to change it?’
Perhaps you already know how to use the Major Arcana keys for manifesting relationship happiness… Either way, I hope you will enjoy these brief key phrases to help you remember how to use the Majors for manifesting truly blissful relationships.
THE FOOL can show you how you and your partner both thrive best when you give each other freedom to be, grow and explore. Continue reading
In a post about Yes / No Love Tarot Techniques I posted not long ago, I mentioned the One Card Draw as a possibility. Some of you prefer a set list for Love Tarot meanings to work from, rather than delving into connecting with each card, so I obliged and put one together. Do feel free to print it out!
Clicking on the individual links will give you more in-depth meanings for love and relationship readings.
Personally, when reading for myself, I don’t use Court Cards to answer yes-no questions. If I turn one over when asking a yes/no type question, I take it as a sign that I’m not meant to ask at this point in time. You can work your way around this by separating the Courtiers from the rest of the deck or by turning the next card over until you get a Major or Minor Arcana card that will answer your question.
However, you will get an extra dimension to this One Card reading by keeping the Courtiers in. If one shows up, you could see it as a mirror of an aspect of yourself that you need to integrate or strengthen before the cards will answer your question.

The World card is a card of transcendence which tells us that we have completed a cycle of learning and are ready to move on to the next one. There is a deep sense of fulfilment connected with this card and to the relationship, this card means that the best possible way of relating (relative to where we are on the path of personal development) is now opening up to us.
The naked Dancer of Life in this card will give you an idea of the feeling of this card. How comfortable in your skin would you have to be to dance naked in a sunny forest glen? How great would it feel to be in perfect harmony with the world around you, contentment radiating out from every pore? Yet, with each completed cycle comes an invitation to begin a new one. The dancer has mastered the choreography of one piece and moves on to learn the choreography of a more complex piece.
To a couple, The World card indicates that you have now reached a phase where you can trust each other completely. You have sense of belonging without codependence, a sense of peace without boredom and a sense of vitality because you keep sparking off each other. How is this possible? It’s possible because you have faced and transcended your deepest fears concerning intimacy. Continue reading
Massive life changing events and choices are heralded by the Judgement card – stuff that most definitely impacts the relationship. The Angel depicted in the RWS Judgment card is Gabriel, the angel of the Annunciation.
As an outside force, it could be any major event that makes one of you have to make a difficult choice – one that will change your lives and the relationship forever. Continue reading
