The Higher Love Tarot Spread

In today’s post, I share the Higher Love Tarot Spread. It is a relationship Tarot spread that helps you evaluate the relationship from the point of view of the summum bonum.

As humanity crosses the threshold of the Age of Aquarius and develops a greater sense of oneness consciousness, the types of questions we pose to the Tarot are naturally evolving. This transformation, which has been underway for some time, is steering our inquiries about love and relationships away from self-centred queries like ‘What can I get from this?’ or ‘Will things go my way?’ towards more holistic and inclusive questions such as ‘How can I ensure that the outcome is for the highest good of all involved?’

The Tarot spread presented below is designed with this new collective perspective in mind. It will perhaps, over time, become the quintessential way of doing Tarot readings in the Age of Aquarius. While the current layout is minimalist, you may include additional cards to enrich the details.

1. Higher Will – What would be the ideal outcome from the POV of Oneness consciousness for this relationship situation/issue?

2. How would this affect Person A?

3. How would this affect Person B?

4-6. How – What the Seeker needs to do to manifest the ideal outcome

1. Higher Will – The King of Swords:  The ideal outcome would entail mastery of communication and a more objective way of relating to each other

2. Person A – 8 of Swords: This would have a liberating effect on the mind of person A

3. Person B – The Wheel of Fortune: The effect on person B would be one of expansion and feeling lucky (if aligned with Higher Will) or simply a reversal of fortunes, such as the relationship ending

4-6. How – The Moon+The Chariot+Ace of Wands: These three cards speak of fear, boundary issues and a tendency to seek to be in control at the level of the second (Moon) and third (Chariot) chakras. The Seeker, Person A, would do well to own her power and stand firm within personal boundaries without expecting to see a specific course of action from Person B. This card combo also speaks of a need to deeply transform/purify sexual energy (Ace of Wands).

Further Analysis

If the Seeker manages this, it will indeed have a liberating effect on her mind. It is her thoughts that make her believe that she needs to be in control of the other person. The root cause of this need is of course the fear represented by the Moon card. The latter is also what causes boundary issues on the level of the second chakra, which she then seeks to compensate for by being overbearing at the level of the third chakra. The boundary issues may concern sexual behaviour that would not have been life-affirming and aligned with Higher Love.

The presence of the Ace of Wands signals a need to clear out the central energy channel (sushumna) by allowing the full power of kundalini to rise. The Seeker can achieve this through meditation and balancing the Fire Element in awareness. Without this Element properly ignited and integrated within, she is likely to continue to seek to compensate for the lack of it by attempting to control her partner. She may also continue to attract partners with whom she can recreate a similar dynamic.

In a quite literal interpretation of the Ace of Wands, I see the power of Kundalini rising until it can circulate freely through the energy system and come out of the hands of the Seeker, enabling her to bring energetic healing to the situation, bringing to mind the words of C.G. Jung:

Often the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect has struggled with in vain.

The Path to Liberation

The Seeker must travel the path to liberation through the land of feelings and intuition. The Kundalini fire will ignite her mind when she surrenders the need to be in control. Only when she has faced her fears and let go will she be able to communicate in the manner of the King of Swords. These cards indicate that this is a process which will take quite a lot of her energy.

  1. Very, very interesting and a lot of new information for me in terms of interpretation of the cards. Indeed a new dimension. Thank you.

    1. Hi Livleen,

      Great question! Thanks for asking 🙂

      It’s to make the sexual energy wholly one’s own. If it has been contaminated through inappropriate sexual behaviour, there may be soul pieces missing or energy (even entities) added from others that does not belong. Soul retrieval may even be necessary in some cases. The process would be different for each individual. In this case, the seeker should be able to rely on her own intuition (The Moon) to guide her right).
