Dating the Knight of Cups

Posted in Knights | 2 comments

Looking to date an über romantic guy? Need your man to compose his own love poems for you? The Knight of Cups is the guy for you! This is the man who as a young boy used to include a handwritten poem in the Mother’s Day card. He is the one who used to get scolded for daydreaming by his teachers, but who stunned the very same teachers with his imaginative art, writing or musical composition. Often quite shy with the opposite sex, he’s a later bloomer when it comes to dating and getting to any sort of ‘base.’ However, once he gets a handle on lurve, he’s firmly stuck on romance. He’ll never be single for any longer period of time after that. And if he does have singledom enforced on him, he’s constantly yearning for and jonesing after the ever-elusive ‘One.’ Because of his obsession with escaping reality, he may sometimes turn to drugs for relief from the scourge of day-to-day living. If you’re dealing with the addicted Knight of Cups, you may want to look at  8 Types of W*ankers instead. Pros: He loves romance and won’t spare any trick in the book to woo you. He is creative and may well inspire you to become more creative too. He is passionate and this extends to the bedroom. Very, very steamy sessions ahead with this guy! He is usually faithful. Cons: Can be emotionally obsessed with the object of his desire. Jealousy can be a very real problem with this guy. His escapist tendencies and artistic temperament can make it difficult for him to hold down a job. If he’s not up, he’s down and if he’s not down, he’s up. There’s very little middle ground and this is something you could potentially find emotionally draining. Type of date he prefers: A moonlit beach. He’s brought his guitar, of course. Time from your first date until you introduce him to your parents: About a week if you’re ‘The One.’ He’s probably already moved in by then too. And yes, he’ll be the one moving in with you – straight from his mum’s (no matter what age he is). Wedding style: Careful. This one could turn into a bit of a groomzilla. He’ll want full control of all the artistic elements of the wedding! Type of dad he would make: A natural bard and storyteller, your children will find him absolutely fascinating. Nobody but nobody tells a better bedtime story! Just don’t count on him to remember everything on the list when he goes shopping. He probably left the list itself on the dresser rummaging around for his car keys. It’s a bummer if he forgets to buy nappies but the kids will survive. His best match: The Queen of Pentacles as a) she keeps him grounded and b) already bought an extra pack of nappies on a buy-one-get-one-free offer the week before. His worst match: The Queen of...

Cheating, home-wrecking, sexual perversion and seduction in the cards

Posted in Divination | 17 comments

  Are you ready to face the truth about your love relationship if all is not what you hoped for? Here are some card combinations for you to ponder if you are willing to not sweep the bad stuff under the carpet. Usually, the cards only serve to confirm your suspicions anyway. Your gut is pretty good at picking up on anything untoward… Intent to cheat Someone is starting to feel like the grass might be greener elsewhere and is likely to stray. (4 of Cups or 7 of Swords, followed by the 3 of Cups) In the first instance, someone feels like they are stuck in an unloving relationship and rather than taking they bull by the horns, their affection begins to wander. In the second instance, we could be dealing with a serial cheater who simply gets his kicks this way. The cheat The intent is gone and they are full on involved in cheating! (3 of Cups, followed by a court card that clearly isn’t you!) The home-wrecker No. 1 This is someone who is stealing someone’s partner because they genuinely love them or because they are jealous of the kind of love they see in this couple (7 of Swords, followed by the 10 of Cups). Typically you will also find a female court card in the mix. I’ll use the Queen of Wands again, to illustrate, but it could be any of them. (And obviously one of the male courtiers if it’s a male home-wrecker!) The home-wrecker No. 2 This is someone who is stealing your partner for money, or it could be someone who is moving in on the partner in a very well-established couple because they envy their standing in the world (7 of Swords, followed by the 10 of Pentacles) The closet pervert This is someone who has an addiction to sex in one of the perverted forms and who will do it behind your back. It could be anything from watching porn to dressing up in your stockings when you’re not watching. (The Devil, followed by The Tower and The High Priestess for secrecy) For more the most sinister of perversions, pedophilia  you would expect to see a Page (child) in the mix. If the perpetrator is a clergyman, the Emperor will be replaced by The Hierophant. A planned seduction – by a male (7 of Swords, followed by the Knight of Cups) A planned seduction – by a female (7 of Swords, followed by the Queen of Wands) As you see, I haven’t covered every possible angle or permutation of filth here so please feel free to add your own! 😀 For those of you who read for others, I would love to hear how you deal with difficult stuff of the nature mentioned here when it shows up in reading. How direct are you? How do you safeguard yourself as...

DIY Love Lyrics Tarot Spread

DIY Love Lyrics Tarot Spread

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 1. Could’ve been – Tiffany (regret about what could have been) 2. All or nothing – Westlife (what I am holding back because of this regret) 3. Left outside alone – Anastacia (how this is causing me to isolate myself) After the first three songs, I felt that the final and fourth song would provide the key/resolution since there was such a clear theme in the first three songs. 4. Just let me hold you – Paolo Nutini (acceptance) These four songs provided me with four very clear card positions. By the way, there is no set number of songs/cards for this spread and you can lay the cards out in any pattern you wish, choosing the deck you feel most drawn to work with. I worked with the Voyager Tarot deck and chose to lay the four cards out like this:   1. Nurturing – Three of Worlds: What I have regrets about is not receiving the nurturing support I felt I needed and deserved. 2. The Star: What I am holding back is hope and grace. 3. Fear – Seven of Cups: I’m creating more and more things to be terrified about so that I can live inside my own bubble – because (apparently) that’s less scary (to the ego) than to stop isolating myself. The 3’s are all connected to The Empress/Mother archetype, which means that the real root of the problem can probably found there. Not so strange considering early childhood abandonment. 4. Oppression – Five of Wands: What I need to do to allow myself to be held again is to break free from my own oppressive thoughts and replace them with complete acceptance. The limitations imposed by my mother’s abandonment do not live anywhere except in my mind. My life force energy longs to stretch beyond those limitations. The Five of Wands is a card of restrained passion. The fire of Leo is frozen and restricted by the cold rings of Saturn. The answer is really simple. I just need to release my old fears and let someone hold me. The hurt, abandonment, lies and collateral damage...

Top 10 Tarot Cards & Combinations for Reconciliation

Posted in Divination | 82 comments

Someone asked me on Twitter the other day what the main cards for reconciliation were. When doing a reading to see if reconciliation with an ex will be possible, the following cards and combinations usually indicate success: The 2 of Cups, is always a good sign of reconciliation, especially together with The Lovers, The Sun or The World (very ‘happily ever after’). This is the ultimate ‘love reciprocation’ card.         The 3 of Cups means ‘happy days’ again – especially together with the 2 of Cups. However, watch out for more 3’s in the same spread, as this could indicate that he will be back but you will not be his only love interest. Although not a commitment card in its own right, together with The Hierophant, it can indicate marriage.         The 6 of Cups can indicate the return of a soul mate lover, especially together with the Ace of Cups (in which case it will either be first time you meet in this incarnation or you get a chance to have fresh new start), 2 of Cups, the 4 of Wands, The Sun and The World.         The 10 of Cups as the outcome is a sure sign that you will settle down and bring up a family together, especially together with the 4 of Wands and the 10 of Pentacles. This is a case of your lover returning because he realises he really wants a future with you.           The 4 of Wands is the ‘moving in together card’ and therefore it is likely that your reconciliation leads to settling down together, or one of you moving back to be with the other person. This is especially true with any of the Cups cards mentioned above.           The Hierophant is a card of commitment so if you’ve been dating a commitment-phobic and this card shows up in the future, surrounded by other cards indication reciprocal love and partnership, you will win his heart for good in the end.           The Lovers can indicate that he chooses to come back. Look for the Hierophant in the same reading to indicate that he also chooses to finally commit. The Lovers together with two or more 3’s indicates a continuation of a love triangle.           Justice together with Temperance and the 2 of Cups can indicate that a marriage heading toward divorce will be restored. If Justice is found in the future position, together with The Hierophant and/or the 3 of Cups, wedding bells will chime even though it may seem it would take a miracle (they do happen, you know!).         Temperance can indicate a lover returning after healing of emotional wounds. If the 3 of Swords is present in the past and...

The Pages – Messengers of Love

Posted in Divination, Pages, Tarot Court Cards | 29 comments

The Pages – Messengers of Love

The Pages are often said to represent students or children in general. However, they can also be seen as messages and in Love Tarot readings, they often show up when someone has received or is about to receive a message. This is especially true together with the 8 of Wands or the Ace of Swords. Each Page can be seen as a representative for their Element, so naturally the romantic messages conveyed by the Pages will have their own unique flavour. Below you will find some examples of the types of messages you can expect from each of the four Pages in the Tarot deck: FIRE The Page of Wands (the straight forward and passionate messenger) Hook-Up Message: Feeling horny. Are you in tonight? x Long-term Relationship Message: I’ll be home soon. Greet me wearing nothing but cling film. X X X   WATER The Page of Cups (the romantic, shy and sentimental messenger) Hook-Up Message: Are you free tonight? Just wondering if you fancy a walk along the beach. It looks like the Moon might make an appearance xx Long-term Relationship Message: Honey, I miss you so much. I’m sitting here thinking about that absolutely amazing day out we had to the coast last summer. Do you miss me half as much as I miss you? Can’t wait to feel your arms around me xxxxx   AIR The Page of Swords (analytical, chatty and critical messenger) Hook-Up Message: Have you seen the latest *insert name of Art House film director* film? It would be great if you could come with me and maybe we could go for a coffee and discuss the film after? What do you think? x Long-term Relationship Message: Leaving the office now. I think the boss has a severe case of PMT. Will tell you all about it when I get home. Do I need to pick up milk? See you in 30 minutes, snugglebuns x   EARTH The Page of Pentacles (the practical, nurturing and sensual messenger) Hook-Up Message: The Farmer’s market is on this weekend. Fancy coming along to sample some local delicacies? x Long-term Relationship Message: What do you want for tea tonight, honey? I was thinking Japanese but I’m not sure if we have enough of the Japanese rice left. Is Italian OK? Oh, and guess what? That massage oil I ordered online yesterday already arrived so prepare for a nice relaxing massage tonight xxx Which of these Pages is more you in the way you text someone? Which one reminds you most of your partner? Angel Blessings Lisa...
