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.
List of Yes-No Tarot Card meanings for Love & Relationship Tarot Readings:
The Fool – Yes! New beginnings ahead but don’t ask for a commitment just yet.
The Magician – Yes. Especially, if the question was ‘Will I hear from him/her?’

The Empress – Yes. Now is the time for sweet loving.
The Emperor – Yes, but it may be all on his terms… is this really what you want?

The Chariot – No. The other person is too focused on their own goals at this point in time.
