Dear HSP friends,
It’s been a peculiar week. Emotions have been riding high and many people have experienced emotional rollercoasters in their relationships. There is very little room for lukewarm at the moment and people are reassessing what really matters, including what relationships to salvage and which to let go of. While obsessing about relating is ‘normal’ for the month of Scorpio, I have rarely encountered it to this degree. So let’s see what the cards have to say about our most intimate relationships for the weekend ahead…
WEEKEND ROMANCE FORECAST – SINGLES
The two cards at the top of the spread give us the theme for the weekend. ‘Love Yourself First’ + Combines with ‘Challenging Times’ (trad. 5 of Wands)
The challenge for the weekend ahead lies in loving yourself more… loving yourself better… Truly embracing the challenge to become happy in your own skin. Confidence levels are not necessarily low but may well swing wildly over the next couple of days. Unlike the 5 of Cups, the 5 of Fire/Wands does not bring the tendency to wallow or feel sorry for oneself, so if you’re up for it, you should be able to use this challenge well in terms of freeing yourself from limiting beliefs and self-doubt.
The three cards at the bottom show us the solution to the problem. The 5 of Swords next to the 10 of Cups and The Moon is indicative of negative long-standing patterns (perhaps even covering past lives) of relating in your family. It is these you need to face head on this weekend. It is time to stop being reactive and vow to steal back the happiness reactivity and self-doubt has taken from you. The way to do this is by diving deep into Shadow and projections, so that the negativity can be released once and for all.
Remember: Just because things have been a certain way for many generations doesn’t mean that you have to continue the pattern. If you are reading this you have the mandate to free yourself and change things for good. Draw down the Sun to shine its light in every corner of your soul and bring the sunshine with you wherever you go. You are more powerful than you think you are!
Family gatherings are on the cards and while this should be a wonderful cause for celebration, expect emotional tension to stir things up. Forewarned is forearmed. Invoke angelic assistance if you have to attend a gathering where you know that unforgiveness is causing bitterness and resentment. Your loving presence can become the catalyst for change and teach you something about how powerful you truly are to effect change for the better.
If you are mindful of all of the above and embrace the challenge, there is no reason you shouldn’t be able to have some wonderful heart-centred experiences this weekend, even if it may not bring you the love of your life.
WEEKEND ROMANCE FORECAST – COUPLES
Here we find ‘Flirt’ and ‘Well-deserved Reward’ (trad. 9 of Pentacles) as the love theme for the weekend ahead.
You met the challenge of last weekend’s reading. Well done! Things are starting to stabilise and your relationship is beginning to feel more like a source of joy than a source of problems. Now it is time rid yourself of any remaining doubt and lingering thoughts shown in the row of three Tarot cards at the bottom.
Whenever you feel tempted to slip back into a negative way of reacting or thinking about your partner, simply replace it with flirting instead. Flirting is something we often reserve for getting to know someone new but it is more important in long-term relationships because this kind of light-hearted fun is precisely what makes the difference between a stagnant relationship and one that is vibrant and mutually beneficial to both people.
Recapture the feeling of how your relationship was when it was new, exciting and sexually explosive. Remind yourselves of how you couldn’t keep your hands off each other. Try one or more of the below to bring that feeling back and spice up your love life…
Buy some lingerie. If you’ve never been one to really dress up for sex, this will be a nice change. You’ll find that even you are getting excited by wearing the sexy garment. You’ll even feel more confident, which is a lovely addition to any bedroom.
Get frisky in public. Maybe there isn’t much of an exhibitionist in you, that’s ok, you don’t have to go all the way in the aisle of a department store. Simply tease your partner while you’re out in public together. Do it in such a way that they can’t do anything about it. They’ll be itching to get you home as soon as possible.
Get out of the bedroom. You don’t have to do it on a roller coaster to have a change of scenery. Head to your laundry room, the guest room or even the stairs in your house. It will remind you of the carefree feeling you had in the beginning.
Attack your partner the next time they come home. Catching people off guard can be a really nice surprise, especially if they usually have to initiate. Wait for your partner to return, naked or not, and pounce them the second they walk in the door.
Talk dirty. If you haven’t been very vocal in the past, it’s time to open your mouth, your partner will be shocked and you’ll easily find yourself getting more turned on.
Make out. It sounds simple, but that’s usually the first thing to go in a long-term relationship. Focus on having make-out ONLY sessions,. it will bring you back to the time where you could do it for hours and bring you closer together.
Finally, purchase a toy together. Make a date of it. This way you can delve even deeper into what you do and do not want.
The temptation this weekend could be to be more in the head than in the body, but there is no reason you can’t use the power your mind and imagination to turn the heat up a notch… Why not start with a sexy surprise text message…?
My surprise gift to both singles and coupled people this weekend is FREE mini love Tarot readings in the comments below. Simply ask your specific question (no general readings). I will do as many of these as I have time for but at least ten over the weekend.
