This advanced Tarot spread is inspired by years of reading the 9 Square intuitively, observing patterns and listening to the whispers of the cards themselves. In the past few months, I have felt a need to add two cards to the square when doing love Tarot readings… and then one day the penny dropped: each of the card positions correspond to Major Arcana 1-11, with the Hierophant as the central card and Justice as the outcome. In other words – perfection in terms of looking at long term potential with the Hierophant and Justice being two of the main marriage cards.
Roughly then you get the following positional meanings: Continue reading
Witches and Pagans celebrate the New Year on Halloween, or Samhain, as it is known in Pagan circles. This is the time in the Wheel of the Year when the veil between worlds is the thinnest and the Magick is strong. Traditionally, Beltane (30 April) is the Sabbat for Love Magick (Magick with a ‘k’ is used by practitioners to differentiate it from stage magic tricks) but the Mandala spell is not a normal love spell; It’s a spell to help you prepare for True Love and establish an energetic bond between you and your unknown future Soul Mate lover, rather than trying to bind a known lover to you. It also allows you to call on the help of your ancestors for subtle intuitive guidance about the characteristics to be looking out for.
You will need:
- A Tarot deck to divine the potential of your magick
- A candle for honouring your ancestors and ask for their guidance/blessing
- An animal oracle (or you can use a FREE online Animal Oracle) to decide the theme of the Mandala
- A print-out of the mandala of your choice
- Colouring pens
Before you begin, make sure that you have a couple of hours to yourself when you won’t be disturbed. Light some incense and play soft music if you think this will help you relax and be creative. 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.
1. Separate all the 2′s from the deck and shuffle them until you don’t know which one is on top. Stop when you feel that you have shuffled enough and turn the top card over. This card represents where your connection is the strongest.
Pentacles = Physical
Cups = Emotional
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
