MUMMY’S BOY - This one still lives at home at age 44. He’ll have very good excuses for doing so (divorce/unemployment etc), including being close to his mother. But this is not a man who loves his mother – it’s someone with an unhealthy tie to his mother, which is making him dangle from her apron strings in one way or another. There are quite a few of these who actually hate their mother and make no secret of it, yet they seem incapable of breaking free.
How he’ll make your life hell: On some level he will always be comparing you to her. If he loves her, you will never be good enough and if he hates her, he will keep spotting similarities between you.
What he looks like in the Tarot: Continue reading
A lot of guys would scratch their heads with a da f*ck look on their faces if they knew how often I get asked this and how desperate many women in their 40′s and beyond are to get hitched even after a couple of failed marriages.
“Surely, once you’ve (reluctantly) tried it and failed,” thinks the bloke, “you’d just want to have fun after that for the rest of your life… right??”
But with many women the expectation of ‘ending up with’ someone and settling down is so strong that that the most common version is not even ‘Will I…?’ It’s ‘When will I…?’ As if singledom is a fate too horrid to even contemplate. Continue reading
My favourite in-depth relationship spread is the Heart of the Relationship spread I created a while back but after giving the Relationship Spread by Nikki Mackay from the book Tarot for Understanding Love and Relationship Patterns (also available on Kindle), I now have another useful spread for doing in-depth relationship readings.
The layout is clear and I like the symmetry of it. The shape of a spread is important to me – it has to make sense and the energy has to flow in the right way (hard to explain!). Placing the unconscious fears/challenges cards sideways to form an obstacle to the flow of energy makes a lot of of sense. I also like the ‘How he/she saw her/him when they first met’ positions, as they can be used to verify the truth of the reading.
In no particular order except number 1, which is number 1 for a reason:
1. Going against your own gut feeling.
2. Keep making excuses for a man who doesn’t have time to even send you a text message.
3. Trying to change your man. There is only one person you can change… and that is you!
4. Changing yourself and adapting to a man’s needs, sacrificing your own needs and even your true self.
5. Using guilt and blame to emotionally manipulate your man.
6. Clinging to an abusive relationship, telling yourself that things will improve. 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.
