It reflects that you have success, happiness, stability, great relationship development, sexual satisfaction, and good compatibility.

Breakups are painful. However, you need to remember that everything happens for a reason and focus on understanding it. The breakup tarot card spread is an excellent way to get a clear picture.

This is a three-card relationship tarot spread. The first card refers to the things that went well in the relationship, the second shows why it did not work out, and the third refers to the things you can learn from it.

How To Interpret

Let’s assume you take out Three of Cups for the first card here. It suggests that you and your ex did have a great time together. So, what was wrong with the relationship, you wonder?

You get the answer when you pull the second card. For instance, if you pull the Seven of Wands card, it suggests there were intransigence and stubbornness between you. Compromises are impossible to reach for you, as you both tend to stand your ground literally in everything. This may have led to commitment issues.

What can you learn from this relationship? To understand that, pull the third card. For instance, if you pull the Temperance card, it refers to harmony, balance, and the ability to accept each other’s shortcomings. You need to learn to compromise and negotiate.

4. Compatibility Tarot Spread

In this tarot spread, the first two cards you pull give you an idea of alignment between you and your partner. The third card, on the contrary, reveals your relationship tone. The tone may not reflect the overall status of the relationship but something unique that may influence your relationship at the moment.

How To Interpret

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?

Kimberly Gedeon, a content creator, writes of her experience of getting a tarot reading and using it herself to see if things will work out with her love interest. The answer she received from the psychic woman was, “There will always be a meddling woman between you and that man (i).” After it proved to be true, she decided to start using tarot herself.

Revealing the intricacies of your relationship, the 10-card tarot spread offers a chance at profound exploration. Each card plays a pivotal role in deciphering the dynamics, challenges, and potential growth of your connection.

Weave these cards into a narrative, unraveling the complexities of your relationship and gain insights into its unique journey and potential evolution.

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

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 a 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 it, 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 which 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 and offer you spiritual guidance 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 by the kind of love, trust, faith, openness, and willingness you will develop to do your tarot card readings.

Relationship tarot spreads are ideal for getting insights into your relationships and love life. If used correctly, these cards can be an amazing tool to enhance your love life and keep it on the right track. Primarily, they enable you to grasp several aspects of the relationship and understand what is required from you and your partner to strengthen it and sometimes even self-discovery. They can also help you get answers to the questions you worry about and help you get more clarity on steering your relationship. Moreover, they can make you aware of what to expect going ahead.
