The Ultimate Guide to getting a Love Tarot Reading for Beginners

What is a Love Tarot Reading?

A Love Tarot Reading is a specially designed reading that gives you insight into what your love life has in store for you.

It tells you where you’re at in your love life and how things will change in the weeks and months to come.

So if you’re wondering what your love life has in store for you getting your Love Tarot Reading is the first step.

It gives you much needed insight into the plan the Universe has in store for you and also helps to explain why you’re facing the problems you’re going through right now.

Because let’s face it, you wouldn’t seek advice from the cards if you didn’t think things could be better.

It’s important to remember that challenges in life are the Universe’s way of teaching you.

And the tarot cards are like a direct link to the Universe so you can figure out how you can learn from your current situation.

That way you’ll be able to grow into a stronger and more balanced person more quickly and easily than without them.

Does it work even if You’re a Sceptic..?

The question is though, are you a sceptic? Sure, it’s difficult to believe in something that’s considered an occult practice, especially in this day and age.

These days people don’t believe in magic, they believe in the Universal scientific laws.

Well, I’m not going to get into the details here, but I do think there is some sort of energy at play behind the scenes when it comes to destiny and the challenges a person faces throughout their life.But that’s my personal opinion.

This will Change your Mind if you Are…

There are stories of sceptics that have gone for Love Tarot Readings and found that it actually works.

Like the one post on Insider by Louis Baragona. He was at a social event, minding his own business and found himself in line at the Tarot Reading table.

The Tarot Reader could tell what he was attracted to in people, that he’d just went through a breakup and what he had to do to find the kind of love that he wanted.

He quoted Carrie Bradshaw, “love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other love.”

And while he’s still waiting to meet this love, because like the Tarot reader said he has to focus on healing after the breakup first, she did predict some things that already happened.

Louis met someone who wasn’t right for him in a bar he always goes to.

And they had also just gone through a breakup, exactly like the tarot reader said.

And, icing on the cake, it didn’t work out because neither of them were ready for a serious relationship. He was duped.

Exactly like the cards said he would be! So now he’s taking their advice and waiting the full year before he goes somewhere new to meet someone who’s right for him, when he’s ready to get involved in an all consuming type of love.

So..? What does that Mean for Me?

It’s funny how people don’t like hearing the truth and always seem to test the boundaries with Love Tarot Readings.

In a Love Tarot Reading the cards explain different aspects of your love life.

They are there to show you where your current problems with relationships stem from and how to fix those problems so you can get the love you deserve.

And if you’re a sceptic like Louis you might not believe that they have the best advice, but usually that’s just because you don’t want to face the truth.

Everyone deserves to be loved and that is exactly what your Love Tarot Reading will help you realize.

There is no failing with a Love Tarot Reading, only the chance to learn how to get the best out of your relationship.

It doesn’t matter what aspect you’re struggling with, the cards will understand what you’re going through even if you don’t completely understand it yet.

If you’re having trouble in your love life read closely. The cards will guide you to find out how you can change your romantic relationship for the better, even if you think it’s a hoax.

If you’re not in a relationship it doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from a Love Tarot Reading.

The chances are that you’re single for a reason, like Louis, and the cards will show you what the issue is and how to resolve it.

You see a Love Tarot Reading isn’t just about predicting the future of your love life.

It’s about finding out what the underlying issues are that are holding you back from manifesting the Love you deserve.

Louis learned that the hard way when he fell for someone that wasn’t right for him, yet again, because he refused to believe what the cards warned him about.

Some Important Questions Answered

  • Can a Love Tarot Reading Predict WHEN I will Meet my Soulmate?

    The short answer is, not exactly. If you’re looking for an exact date and time you’re out of luck. The cards can however reveal what you will need to go through and accomplish or learn in order to be prepared to meet your Soulmate?

    So the sooner you get yourself ready the sooner the Universe will send them your way! Don’t be afraid to get down and dig deep to prepare yourself for your soulmate?

    The better prepared you are for the relationship the better the relationship will turn out to be. So while the Tarot Reading won’t give you the exact time and date the you’ll meet the Love of Your Life, it will be able to tell you exactly what you need to do to prepare for that day.

  • Can a Tarot Reading tell me the NAME of my Soulmate?

    If you already know your perfect match or they’re already a part of your life the Tarot Reading will bring this person to your mind. They’ll just pop into your head during your Tarot Reading.

    But if you haven’t met your perfect match yet, then there is no way for the Tarot to tell you what their name is. That doesn’t mean the Tarot Reading won’t be able to reveal the type of person you’re going to meet or what they look like. So at least you’ll know what to look out for even if you don’t know the person’s name.

  • Are the Cards Always Right about how my Love Life is going to pan out?

    Yes they are, but the outcome you get will depend on your ability to heed the warnings they give you and apply the advice you get. The Tarot reveals the most likely outcome for your love life, but you always have the freedom to change that.

    They are a guide to the future, they don’t reveal it exactly. It’s actually a good thing, because this way you can avoid a lot of disasters in your love life if you take the advice of the cards. You’ll also be able to meet the Love of Your Life a lot sooner.

  • Can Anyone learn to do Love Readings with Tarot Cards?

    Yes. Some people are naturally better at understanding what the Universe is trying to reveal to them through the Love Tarot, but that doesn’t mean they are the only people that can benefit from learning to do Love Tarot Readings. The more you practice reading Tarot cards the better you’ll become. So if this is something you want to get into invest in a deck of cards and start practicing today. Soon you’ll be able to do some Love Tarot Spreads like the ones above for your friends!

  • Is Love Tarot something to be Afraid of?

    No, you don’t need to be afraid of Tarot Readings. All Tarot Readings, including Love Tarot Readings are just a way for the Universe to reveal the current path you’re on and what challenges you might face on this path.

    So if you’re busy with a love reading and a bad card suddenly comes up it doesn’t mean the Tarot just put that card into your love life and you could’ve avoided it by not doing the reading.

    That bad thing was already there, the cards are just making you aware of it. So don’t be afraid of doing a Love Tarot Reading.

Get Ready for an Epic Journey!​

It’s as though, without the Love Tarot Reading, you’re trying to go on an epic cross country trek using the same, impractical shoes you’ve always been wearing and believing that you won’t get stuck at some point.

The Love Tarot Reading will give you a clearer idea of the landscape you’re facing in the future. Will you be climbing big rocks, will you be walking through rivers, will you be walking over sand… It’ll help you to figure out what shoes you need to put on to get through to where you want to be.

The bottom line of a Love Tarot Reading is that there is hope for your romantic relationships. You don’t have to give up on love because your heel broke. The cards will guide you to finding out which shoes you need to put on.

Louis also came to the conclusion that it’s good to get different perspectives on your love life and if nothing else that is what your Love Tarot Reading will do.

Then you’ll be able to approach love with a whole new frame of reference that will give you a chance to change into something more practical so you can get everything you want out of your romantic relationship, regardless of how hopeless you feel right now.

So don’t give up hope! There is an amazing future in store for you, and the cards are there as a guide.

The Three Most Common Love Tarot Spreads:
Which is for you?

There are different types of Tarot Spreads that will give you answers about your love life. If you have a deck of Tarot Cards, why not try these different spreads to see which one works best for you!

To do a Tarot Spread with your own cards shuffle the cards keeping your question in mind. In this case it will have to do with your relationship. But be specific. The more specific you are about your question the better you’ll be able to interpret the message from the Universe. Here are three spreads you can use to determine what your love life has in store for you.

Three Card Love Tarot Spread

This spread will reveal the basic energy you’re putting out into the Universe when it comes to your romantic side. If you’re wondering what you can do to improve your relationship or what the Universe wants you to learn before you embark on a new relationship.

It’s a simple spread and very easy to understand, which makes it a good spread to start off with if you’re new to Tarot.

  • Card 1

    The first card will let you know what aspects of your past have an influence on your present situation. It tells you more about the history of your question.

  • Card 2

    The second card tells you where you’re currently at. What challenges you need to overcome or what you need to work on in order to resolve the issues from your past.

  • Card 3

    The third card is the probable outcome of the situation. This can be a warning or a blessing, depending on the card you pick. But don’t be disheartened if it’s a warning, at least this way you’ll know what not to do!

If you’re in a Relationship? Try this Love Tarot Spread!

If you’re already in a relationship and you’re starting to face some challenges, or there are some old problems that keep cropping up, try this spread for some clarity on what you can do to keep the spark alive or get it back. It will give you a bit more clarity than the three card reading so you’ll know exactly how to approach the problem.

Keep your unresolved issue in mind while you shuffle the cards. Focus on how it makes you feel and how you would like to feel once it’s resolved. Then draw five cards and lay them out in front of you one by one.

  • Card 1

    This represents you. It gives you insight into how you are in the relationship. It might be the way your partner sees you too, so keep an open mind if you think it’s not relevant. It will give you an idea of where things might be going off track if they are.

  • Card 2

    The second card represents your partner. It’s the energy they’re bringing to the relationship at the moment. It’s how you see them and what they have to offer you, giving you insight into how you look at your partner.

  • Card 3

    This is a very crucial card. It reveals the future of your relationship with your current partner. Will you be happy? Or will you need to work on some things? This card will tell you what you need to change in order to ensure a bright future together.

  • Card 4

    The fourth card represents your partner’s fulfillment in the relationship. Are there things that they are unhappy with? What does the future of the relationship hold for them? How will they need to adapt to remain happy in the relationship?

  • Card 5

    The fifth card will reveal what the overall potential of the relationship is. Keep an open mind. If you think the relationship is worth it this card will also reveal what you can do in order to make the relationship last.

If it’s destined to be a short relationship don’t think it won’t be worth it! Every relationship we enter in our lives give us a valuable chance to grow.

How a Love Tarot Reading Actually Works…

In a Love Tarot reading there will be at least three cards. In a three card reading the message you get will be quite broad, so you’ll have to use your intuition to help you apply it to specific things in your life.

With more in depth readings you’ll get exact specifics and it’ll be easier to know exactly what the Universe is trying to tell you. Let’s use the shoes as an example. In a three card reading the universe will tell you, those wedges are busy hurting your feet, get some flats and you’ll save your feet.

In an in depth reading the Universe will be able to tell you “Those black wedges you wear to work every day are crushing the second toe on your left foot and you’re going to be doing a surprise team building exercise next week so swop them out for the red pumps in the back of your closet otherwise you might sprain your ankle”. Does that make sense?

Notice how even the in depth reading isn’t extremely specific. “Next week” and “might sprain your ankle” imply that things could change between now and then and that time is very relative in the Spiritual realm. So don’t expect things to happen exactly as you think they will.

What happens will also depend on how you take the advice of the cards. For instance Louis didn’t take the warning that he’ll be duped to heart. He went and fell for the same type of person that he always has despite the warning. So you always have a choice when it comes to your Love Tarot Reading.

The cards are more of a guide than a “this is your future regardless of what you do” type of arrangement.

The key to making a Love Tarot Reading, whether it’s a short or in depth reading, work for you is to read between the lines. Those red pumps might just catch the eye of the love of your life and inspire them to come over and talk to you.

So think about the unseen events that are conspiring to get you where you want to go as much as the practical side of what the cards are telling you.

If you’re in touch with your divinatory side you’ll probably get sparks of Divine inspiration. And the more you practice some calming techniques and the spreads above the more likely it is that you’ll be able to interpret the cards in a way that makes sense to you.

What the Cards Mean

I’m going to explain what the different cards in a short three card reading mean so you’ll be able to get an idea of how this whole Love Tarot Reading thing works and then you’ll be able to apply it to your own personal reading. For the sake of the examples imagine I just broke up with a boyfriend that was very hurtful and now I’m looking for a relationship that is more supportive and has mutual respect as a basis.

  • The First Card

    The first card in a three card reading is to do with the past. It will show you what’s holding you back, what you need to let go of in order to move forward, or what issues you need to work on before you can start having the relationship you’re dreaming of. For instance imagine I drew the Three of Swords as my first card. That shows that I’m heartbroken and scared of being stabbed. Now, knowing my own history I can apply that to myself. So I’ll think to myself, yes, I want a new relationship, but I’m carrying around a lot of fear and doubt. I struggle to trust people, because I’m always scared that I’ll end up getting hurt. You see how I applied the message from the cards to my own life there? So, the first card will indicate what the issue is. It sets the tone for the rest of the reading.

  • The Second Card

    The second card tells you where you are at the moment and what your environment is. This card will help you understand what your past has manifested in your present and what you need to work on to get a better future. If it’s a negative card, for example The Tower, don’t be put off the reading. The tower just shows that you’re going through a phase of change. So if I drew the Tower after the Three of Swords and I apply it to my own life I’ll see that I need to use this opportunity of change to face my fears and put it in the past. I need to restructure my ideals and learn from my pain in order to make better choices in the future. At the moment things are falling apart, but that’s ok, because I don’t like the way things are at the moment anyway. It’s important to learn as much as you can from this card. You need to keep your first card in mind while you read this card, because they build on each other. But this is the card that will give you the most insight into what it is that you need to work on. In my case I need to change my ideals in love and build a new foundation for my future relationship to be everything I want it to be.

  • The Third Card

    This is where your future gets told. The third card in a three card Love Reading represents future possibilities. It’s where the cards get specific about what actions you can take to get the results you want. So I want a relationship that’s supportive and filled with mutual respect, not one that’s full of hurtful comments and spite. Let’s say I draw the Queen of Pentacles in Reverse. The meaning of this is “evil, fear, suspicion, suspense and mistrust. This indicates that deep in my soul I’m still very suspicious and I’m living in a state of suspense because I’m still fearful that the next person will do the same thing to me as the last person… So what is the universe trying to tell me? Could it be that I’m actually causing evil in my own life because I don’t trust my own judgement? Am I the cause of my own disaster? With this reading I know that I still need time to rebuild myself before going into a new relationship and I need to work on trust issues if I want my next relationship to succeed. Do you see how even though the last card was quite negative in and of itself it actually showed me that if I march into a new relationship right now it’ll be filled with all kinds of negative emotions… So if you get a negative card as your final card, don’t see it as a bad omen, it’s just a warning from the Universe. Now you should understand how a Love Tarot Reading works. The most important part when you do your reading is to apply the cards to your own circumstances and not to get down on yourself. In my example it was a pretty negative spread, but I learned a lot from it. I know what I need to do before I go into a new relationship now. Love Tarot Readings won’t magically fix all your relationship problems, they’ll just give you insight and advice into what it is that you can do to have a magical relationship of your very own.

These are three easy spreads that will help you figure out where your love life is heading, have fun with them!

How to Approach Your Love Reading:

Keep an Open Mind

You may think you know everything you need to know about your romantic relationship, but often this isn’t the case. You’re facing challenges in your ability to manifest the love you feel you deserve and there is a reason for this.

If you want to get the most out of your Love Tarot Reading you need to keep an open mind. You can’t let your idea of how things ought to be get in the way of the message the Universe is trying to give you.

Or like in Louis case let your scepticism lead you to wearing the same old shoes that got you into trouble the first time, laugh at the cards and then still expect to get a happy ending… As his experience shows, that just doesn’t work.

The cards are going to give you a new perspective on how to face your struggles and resolve your issues. Let them guide you to a new point of view, a new pair of boots if you will.

If you cling to your old way of thinking, or that to-die-for pair of heels, and don’t take the message from the cards to heart you won’t get the full benefit of your Love Tarot Reading.

You’ll keep facing the same challenges in your romantic relationship until you can change the way you approach the problem. So let the cards guide you.

The Universe wants what’s best for you and with the help of your personal Love Tarot Reading you’ll be able to find out exactly what you can do, and which shoes to wear, to climb to the top and make your romantic dreams come true.

Don’t let Past Heartache get in your Way

We’ve all been through heartache in the past. Trust me, I know how painful it can be. The scars last a long time and there are some wounds that even time can’t heal. Love has a great capacity to hurt us.

But in order for you to get the most out of your Love Tarot Reading you can’t let past hurts get in your way. It’s like your favorite shoes that can’t last forever, at some point you need to put on a new pair.

I know it’s difficult, and this goes hand in hand with keeping and open mind, but you need to realize that the pain from your past is keeping you from seeing the opportunities the Universe is presenting you with to manifest the relationship of your dreams. Who knows, you might even like the new pair of shoes more than the old pair and this pair will be able to get you places you never dreamed of going.

If someone hurt you in a past relationship it’s obvious that you’re going to be scared when a similar situation arises. But that fear is making you act in a way that will only bring more heartache into your life.

It’s like jumping from one rock to another in slippery shoes. The more scared you are of falling the greater the chances that you will.

I’m not trying to say that you should forget what your past heartache has taught you, but, once you’ve put on shoes with more grip, try to let go of the fear you have that it will happen again. It’s time to start trusting in the Universe and its desire to give you love and happiness again.

After all, it’s what you deserve. So don’t let the pain from your past keep you from the amazing future the Universe has planned for you.

Keep your Heart’s Desires in Mind

When you’re approaching your Love Tarot Reading you need to keep your heart’s desires in mind. Your heart’s desires are the things that you would want in a fulfilling romantic relationship.

Do you want someone who hangs on your every word like Louis? Or would you rather want someone who lives their own life? Are you looking for someone to spend as much time with as possible? Or do you need someone who’ll be happy to leave you to do your own thing? These are just a couple of things you need to consider.

On a deeper level you heart’s desires could be something like you want someone who’s shared a similar, life altering experience that you went through. So you can connect on a deeper level.

In fact that’s probably what drew Louis to the relationship that he got duped in. I’m not saying you’ll get duped in your shared experience. But imagine you and your partner are wearing the same shoes. You’ll be able to go anywhere together, without one of you being left behind.

On the other hand your heart’s desires might revolve around a current relationship. For instance you may want your current partner to be more honest and intimate with you and you’re wondering how you can lure them out of the shell they’ve retreated into.

So you and your partner can connect on a deeper more heartfelt level. This could mean kicking your shoes off and just relaxing for a bit, but you’re so busy climbing obstacles that you feel like you’re going to tumble backwards if you take a break. It doesn’t have to be that way…

Whatever your heart’s desires are, they will have a big influence on your Love Tarot Reading. You need to figure out what it is that you want from your Love Tarot Reading and keep that in mind throughout the reading. Louis wanted an in your face kind of love, what is it that you want?

What’s Next?

So I’ve given you just about as much as I can without doing a Love Tarot Reading for you. But here are a couple of final pointers for you to use. It’s a rehash of what we’ve already discussed, but with a few extra bits you may have missed.

  • Getting Your Very Own Love Tarot Reading

    So the next step is for you to go out and get your very own Love Tarot Reading. And what I’m about to say next may go against what a lot of people are saying, but it really doesn’t matter where or how you go about doing this. Everything in life happens for a reason, so if you end up getting a Love Tarot Reading from a 5 year old that has absolutely no experience with this type of thing you will still be able to learn something valuable from it. There are larger things at work in our Universe, things we cannot even fathom. So where you get your personal Love Tarot Reading is up to you in the end. If you feel anxious about the reading remember to keep breathing! You’ll also need to practice staying open minded, free from past heartache and, most of all, keep your heart’s desire in mind as you go through your reading. It might seem like a lot to remember, but once you get the hang of it you’ll be doing it naturally without even thinking about it.

  • How to Apply it to You

    When you’re doing your next Love Tarot Reading remember the pointers I gave you about how a Love Tarot Reading Works. It’s important not to get down on yourself, staying positive will help you to get the bigger picture behind what the cards look like at face value. Also, apply them to your own life like I did in the example. Question what they are trying to tell you. Where you can change and what you should avoid. You know yourself better than anyone else, so you’ll be able to feel what feels right. If you reach a dead end and you’re not sure exactly what the cards are saying or to what aspect of your love life it applies, take a short break. It’s happened to me that I only really get the message the cards were trying to convey a couple of days or even weeks later. Sometimes you do just need a bit of time for the message to sink in and make sense. And in the end it’s you who needs to make sense of it and get the message the Universe is trying to give you, so give it some time and thought.

Things to Remember

A last important word. A Love Tarot Reading isn’t a crystal ball. It doesn’t predict your future in the sense that “this will happen this way no matter what”. You have a choice. You can change your destiny!

The cards are just a guide of the most likely outcome. If you really put your mind to it you can prove them completely wrong. For instance, let’s take my example reading from the What the Cards Mean section.

Say I just met someone before I did the reading. Now my original conclusion was that I should wait before going into a new relationship. But now I’ve already met someone I really really like and I don’t want to pass up the chance of having a relationship with this person. So what do I do?

The third card in the reading is about mistrust and evil. Those are things I definitely want to avoid. The second card is about rebuilding my foundations and changing for the better.

There I can see what my best course of action is. I go to this new person and tell them something along the lines of “listen here, I just got out of a terrible relationship, it made me feel like I was being stabbed in the heart.

I’m scared that happens again. But I do want to try and make this work. I want this to be different. So I’m here telling you this because I want to have a relationship that’s built on trust. I’m just being honest about my past. I hope you can respect that.” And then see how they respond.

You see what I did there? I took the whole reading and told this new person what I want, where I’m at and where I’m coming from. That way I’m already laying a solid, honest foundation.

I’m taking back my power by taking what the cards said and turning it into something that I want. Because, as with all things in life, Love Tarot Readings are what you make of them. They are not set in stone and you have the power to take the course of your love life into your own hands.

The Love Tarot Reading is there to guide you in the right direction, it’s up to you to take the wheel.
