Doing a love reading for yourself or a friend and not quite sure what to look for? It’s easy to get lost in the many different interpretations for each card, so I decided to put together this Top 5 Love Tarot Cards Guide to simplify your love readings.
Top Soulmate Card: The 6 of Cups. When you meet someone under the auspice of the 6 of Cups you are likely to bond instantly and have the feeling of already knowing this person. That feeling is there for a reason. You have journeyed together in a past life. Look for combinations with the Ace of Cups, Knight of Cups and Wheel of Fortune for incoming soulmates. Soulmate love always promotes growth but can be difficult depending on your karma and may or may not last.
Top New Love Card: The Ace of Cups. In a love reading, the Ace of Cups is the card that tells you to keep your heart open to welcome new love in. Look for combinations with Court cards (also known as ‘people cards’), the 2 of Cups, The Lovers and The Knight of Cups. A court card next to the Ace of Cups might tell you a bit about the personality of your new love. If the Court card happens to be the Knight of Cups, you can expect him to fall head over heels in love with you.
Top Great Date Card: The Three of Cups. Communication will flow and joyful emotional bonding should be a doddle. Be warned though, as this card could easily end up with a ‘Your place or mine?’ scenario. Make your mind up whether or not this would be cool before stepping out and avoid over consumption of alcohol if you want to keep your head clear.
Top Reciprocal Love Cards: 2 of Cups & The Lovers. Look for combinations with The Empress and the Knight of Cups.
Top Commitment Cards: The Hierophant for wedding bells. The Four of Wands for moving in together. The World for lasting love. The Sun and the 10 of Cups for relationship happiness. The 10 of Pentacles for telling your grandchildren about how you first met. Look for combinations with all of the cards mentioned above.
Additional cards you may want to look out for: As usual, the 9 of Cups and The Star signify luck and getting your wish granted.
The Other Knights: The Knight of Pentacles signifies steadfastness and reliability but may be a tad dull. The Knight of Swords will most likely end up hurting you. He may look like your Knight in Shining Armour but he’s not able to care deeply for another. The Knight of Wands is often an incurable flirt – fun while it lasts but don’t count on him popping the question.
