Learning to trust again after you have suffered deep betrayal or cheating in love can be very tricky. One reason for this is the feeling of confusion after you find out that what you thought was real was a complete and utter sham – counterfeit love… You dreamed of True Love, got too close to the sun… You crashed and now you’re wondering if your wings will ever grow back out again. The fear of experiencing this kind of pain again could make it tempting for you to isolate yourself.
There is a way to start trusting again but the truth is that love will never be a risk-free venture. The best you can do is take your time in getting to know someone new before you go giving your heart away. In fact, make sure you know all of his friends and his family too! Leave no stone unturned to make sure he is worthy of your affection. In the end you will have to take a leap of faith but it’s up to you how big a leap. Do you really need to attempt the Grand Canyon and possibly end up with someone who was after your bank account, your daughter or a Visa from your country of birth? Continue reading
Today’s love &relationship Tarot spread is for looking at how you connect with your lover across the Elemental spectrum and what you can do to tweak/improve the connection. In the image above, I’m working with the Victorian Romantic Tarot but any Tarot deck will do.

Swords = Intellectual
Wands = Spiritual
In the example above, the chosen card is the 2 of Pentacles, showing us that the physical connection is the strongest component of this particular relationship. Continue reading
you give me fever

fever when you hold me tight

It happens. You go on yet another first date, zero expectations because you know you’ll invariably feel let down otherwise… when BHAM! someone crosses your path who is totally hot and totally into you. Girlfriend, you’d better have a game plan for this – if nothing else then to keep your legs shut on the first date! Or you will if you want to see him again… Continue reading
This post was inspired by a question from a reader. She wanted to know why her ex’s always seemed to get back in touch every time she had found someone new. My reply was:
Oh, it is simple. They feel the energetic connection fading and they want to know why – on a subconscious level of course… but they’ll still act on it!
If you stayed emotionally attached to your ex and found it hard to let go after the break-up, it is likely you had a push-you-pull-me relationship varying from slightly to highly co-dependent where he was in an avoidance pattern (expressed as commitment phobia) and you were in pattern of neediness (often based on abandonment issues).
