Hello everyone, so today I thought I would do something a little different. This isn’t exactly a spread but it is answering a question while using the tarot cards. There will be a lot of pictures in this post so you can see the process I did.
So I started with the original shuffling as it said. I thought about how I am funny, nurturing, goal oriented etc.
I was pretty near instantly drawn to the right deck. So I put the left deck aside and shuffled again thinking about my weaknesses. I thought about my anxiety, my anger, lack of patience, etc.
Once again my hand was drawn to the deck on the right. So I put the other two decks aside. I spread the cards out and my hand was drawn just to right of the centre. My hands feel on 4 cards.
I then closed my eyes and thought about how I wanted to do magick to heal, bring prosperity, happiness, and for love. My hand was then drawn to the top two cards.
Now I closed my eyes and asked my signifier card to present itself and my hand was drawn to the left card.
In order to understand what this card meant for me I referred to this picture.
So first of all my card is a Major Arcana card. So apparently my path is pretty much carved in stone. Also the strengths and the weaknesses of this card are what I will deal with for this entire lifetime. For imagery it suggested to look at the book the deck came with but it didn’t click with me so I looked at Labyrinthos instead and clicked with it a lot better. So I will do a copy and paste from that website.
The primary meaning within the Lovers is harmony, attractiveness, and perfection in a relationship. The trust and the unity that the lovers have gives each of them confidence and strength, empowering the other. The bond that they have created is very strong, and it can indicate that the two are joined in marriage, and other close and intimate relationships. Another meaning behind the lovers card is the concept of choice – a choice between things that are opposing and mutually exclusive. This could be a dilemma that you need to think about carefully and make the best decision for your situation.
A more personal Lovers meaning that can apply to individuals is the development of your own personal belief systems, regardless of what are the societal norms. We see this as a development from the Hierophant, who made decrees and passed on his knowledge through a standardized system. This is one of the times when you figure out what you are going to stand for, and what your philosophy in life will truly be. You must start making up your mind about what you find important and unimportant in your life. You should be as true to yourself as you can be, so you will be genuine and authentic to the people who are around you.
One other thing I find interesting about this card is that it is associated with the astrology sign Gemini which also happens to be my partners sign.
All in all I thought this was a really cool reading and hope this new information will help me decipher readings better in the future.
I hope you found this as interesting as I did and get some use out of this “spread”. As always if you have any thoughts or questions leave them in the comments. Make sure you subscribe so you get a notification every time I post. Until next time, Merry Meet and Blessed Be.
