Here, you need to pull the five cards for a basic cross, reflecting your and your partner’s feelings about the relationship, the dominant characteristic of the relationship dynamic, and challenges or conflicts influencing the relationship’s potential.

Similar to most five-card crosses, the fourth and fifth cards here allow you to learn more about the significance of your relationship dynamic – what might be causing or could cause tension in the relationship? How may the relationship impact your life?

When it comes to tarot card reading, intuition is a powerful thing. It is essentially the gut feeling we get about something that sticks with us. Love, light, and intuition can guide us in understanding our love life, sometimes without us realizing it. Let’s understand this in detail.

How To Read Tarot Cards With Love, Light, And Intuition

How To Read Tarot Cards With Love, Light, And Intuition


The key idea behind intuitive love tarot readings is to let feelings guide you instead of analyzing everything with logic. If done right, an intuitive tarot reading can be the key to unlocking the tarot.

Here is how you can do tarot reading with love, light, and intuition:

  •  Understanding What Tarot Cards Represent And How To Interpret Them

Tarot cards are more like guides that help you navigate your inner personal life, including love, relationships, career, and more.

In general, every tarot deck comes with a detailed guidebook to interpret the cards. However, all cards are open to interpretation. It is more about using the moment to flex your inner light and intuition to understand how a particular card applies to different areas of your life, specifically love and relationships.

  •  Keep Going Back To The Card

There is no harm in putting the card back in the deck after the reading. However, it is wise to go back to the card and think about the message the universe is trying to communicate. Since all cards are open to interpretation, try to think over the message, analyze, and understand its true meaning.

Another important thing to remember is to keep the chosen tarot card back into the box face-up on top of the cards, unlike the rest of the deck that stays face-down.

  •  Follow The Ideal Process For Pulling And Addressing The Cards

To start the process, open your tarot box and hold the cards in your hand. Take a few deep breaths, clear your mind, use your intuition, and ask your spirit guides to be with you during the reading. You can ask your guides to give love, light, and clear messages that will most benefit your highest destiny path.

As you hold the cards in your hand, tap the pile of tarot cards several times to spread your energy to the deck, give the cards a nice shuffle, cut them into three piles, and put them into one pile again.

Now, you are ready to start the tarot reading. Spread the cards on the floor or table, choose the ones you are drawn to, and consult the guidebook and intuition.

One of the most important things to keep in mind here is not to overthink it. While intuitive messages during tarot reading may not always make complete sense, the point is to trust them anyway.

So, when you receive your intuitive hints, thank your inner light and soul for the information and request some more. If you keep following your intuition, you will be surprised with the kind of love, trust, faith, openness, and willingness you will develop to do your tarot card readings.

Wrapping Up

Relationship tarot spreads are a great tool to help you enhance your love life. They allow you to understand various aspects of your relationship and what you might need from your partner for it to blossom. They can also answer the questions you have been worried about and offer more clarity on navigating your relationship with your partner and what to expect in the future. Go ahead, shuffle the deck, and let the universe guide you.
