“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
Sometimes we know that something is slightly off kilter in the relationship but we don’t even know which questions to ask to make it right again.
If you have a music app like which randomises songs, you can use it as an oracle to make your own Tarot spread. The randomly chosen songs can help you focus on the area of relating that is causing problems.
In order for this to work you have to suspend analytical thought for a while and surrender to synchronicity. Along a strictly logical line of thought, it may not make much sense to allow every third song on your Spotify love songs playlist tell you what needs fixing in your love life.
When I tried this for myself, the Great Oracle of Spotify gave me Continue reading
He moved on and is flaunting his new girlfriend on Facebook but you are still missing him. There is a hole in your heart and it is shaped like him. If anything the pain seems to grow sharper and you have no idea how to let go of the feelings you still have for him.
Is this you?
The Tarot can help you understand why you are still hooked on your ex and what you need to do in order to let go.
Here is what you do: Continue reading
Having a great love for flowers and oracle cards, I remember how excited I was when I came across the Flower Spirit Cards by Melanie Eclare many years ago. Sadly, they are now out of print but you can still buy used copies cheap on Amazon.
Connecting with the spirits of flowers is one of the quickest way to open the heart to love – like laughter, flowers have the power to evaporate negativity and blocks to love.
Earth laughs in flowers.

The more we choose to open our hearts to love in one area of our life, the easier it becomes to open the heart to unconditional love at all times, no matter what the situation. The Heart Chakra is not unlike a muscle in that it becomes stronger every time we choose to love.
Try pulling a card (or rune, or stave) each for how to create more loving relationships in these three areas: Continue reading
This Love Tarot spread is for anyone who is single and looking, wanting to know when and how love will appear in their life, as well as what they can do to invite love in. Invoke the protection and guidance of Archangel Anael as you lay the cards out and thank Her for Her help when you gather the cards back in.
The shape of the spread is based on the 8 pointed star of Venus, the Planet ruled by Anael. Anael is sometimes referred to as ‘The Rose Angel.’
The corresponding deities are Venus, Aphrodite and Cupid.
1. State of your heart – this card describes the energy flow of your heart chakra at this point in time. It indicates how ready you are for true love. Excellent cards in this position would be The Empress, The Lovers, 2 of Cups, Ace of Cups, 9 of Cups, The Star, The Sun and The World. Most cards will indicate a need to release blocks to love.
Embrace the challenge with as much enthusiasm as you can muster. Know that you are worthy of love and vow to simply release any blocks to giving/receiving love as and when you become aware of them. Ask Anael to help with this.
2. Cupid’s arrow – this card tells you how Cupid’s arrow will strike. It indicates how you will meet. The Ace of Swords, Page of Swords or The Star (Aquarius) could indicate meeting Online. The 3 of Wands (the ‘networking card’) could indicate meeting at a Conference, while the 8 of Pentacles indicates meeting at your regular place of work. With the Page of Pentacles it is likely that you thanks to studies and taking the same class. The 4 of Wands indicates meeting during some kind of celebration in your own or a friend’s house etc.
3. Timing – this card gives you the most likely timing. Personally, I rely on astrological correspondences for timing. The planetary cards can indicate a day of the week (of any week of any year) as follows: Continue reading
