“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: 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.

When there is more than one of the same number Minor Arcana cards it has a bearing on the reading. This is what multiples mean in Love Tarot readings:
4 Tens – Responsibilities are weighing heavily on you or your partner
3 Tens – Difficult times are coming to an end
4 Nines – Extreme isolation
3 Nines – An important relationship lesson is being successfully integrated
4 Eights – Powerful and rapid changes, usually positive

4 Sevens – A deeply spiritual relationship
3 Sevens – Good luck Continue reading
The 10′s are all related to the epic Wheel of Fortune. Hence endings and new beginnings are indicated. The battle between permanence and impermanence is in full swing and change always wins. There are opportunities both for shutting down and for expansion.
So what do the 10′s mean in love and romance readings? Continue reading
The number 9 relates to completion, fruition, integrity, idealism, the unseen realms, life review, wisdom, crystallisation, transition, the Third Eye, visionary leadership and protection.
The Tarot 9′s are a bit like the 7′s in that they often indicate solitude rather than companionship. This is by virtue of resonating with the Major Arcana Hermit energies. Energetically, there is a strong resonance with the Third Eye.
9 of Wands. Like the 4 of Pentacles, this is a card of boundaries. Often it indicates a need to draw new boundaries after betrayals and other harsh life lessons. Depending on the spirit with which these lessons are greeted, the person represented by this card can either choose to display sound boundaries or become jaded and cynical which then leads to isolation and an unwillingness to share oneself with others.
