3 Eights – You and your beloved are going on a trip
4 Sevens – A deeply spiritual relationship
3 Sevens – Good luck
4 Sixes – A soulmate relationship that goes back many incarnations
3 Sixes – Great pleasure
4 Fives – Diversity and flexibility, an ability to go with the flow
3 Fives – Internal and external conflicts, bad luck
4 Fours – Lasting stability, possibly after a house move or moving in together
3 Fours – A house move
4 Threes – A relationship centred around creative projects and raising children

3 Twos – A wedding
4 Aces – A complete first, a new type of lover or relationship, starting over
3 Aces – Extreme luck, pregnancy

  1. What deck is in the picture at the top of this page??

    • It’s the Wheel of the Year tarot – with the borders trimmed off!

  2. I was wondering about pairings and multiples in the court cards and Major Arcana. Any thoughts on these? I recently had three pages in a reading…and several Major Arcana…

    • Several Majors is an indication of Major Life Lessons and that you may not be able to exert much control over how events unfold. With all the pages present, what you (or the Seeker) must do is pay attention and become a student of these lessons. Make zero assumptions. Take on a beginner’s mind. Watch, learn… keep a journal… The missing Page could then be a clue about what Element the Seeker has already mastered to a certain degree – a strength to use perhaps.

      • Thank you so much! I had four kings in a reading the other day! Never saw that before…

        • You’re very welcome! :)

  3. Does it mean anything if you get cards that have consecutive numbers example.. 456

    • Hi Amanda, Yes – it indicates a progression of that suit’s energy and the attached lesson. Learning could be accelerated or there is a strong ‘lesson theme’ present.

  4. Very interesting!!

  5. I didn’t know this and I do Tarot! I’m going to share this on my blog :) …and can’t wait to actually see and use this in Tarot…

Share your thoughts...
