The good, the bad, and the ugly cards in a relationship reading…
This is quite a flippant blog post, I am not attempting to “define” any card, just refer to my experiences in relationship readings.
In a reading I am looking for the narrative between the cards, rather than one card in particular. I have included a picture of the relationship spread I typically use with card placements at the bottom of the blog.
I take relationship readings very seriously, they carry a lot of emotional weight for a client. Matters of the heart can bring much joy and sorrow, and the wrong advice from a tarot reader can bring much pain.
The cards I love to see,
Knight of pentacles-loyal and steadfast.
King of pentacles- all about the joy and pleasure.
Knight of wands- strong sexual chemistry.
Knight of cups-Its all about the love, a romantic partner.
Page of cups- a message from the heart, fun.
The Lovers- the coming together of two people.
The 10 of pentacles- a classic “relationship” where two people have a shared mundane life. This can feel like a “gilded cage” so you’ll also see this card on my “list of dread”. It depends on the cards around it.
9 of cups/star- both “wish cards” suggesting the reading is positive.
Fool- “falling in love”
6 of swords- moving onto calmer waters.
3 of pentacles- a firm foundation.
3 of wands- Success and happiness.
Queen of pentacles- happiness in home life.
