In matters of Love, there is nothing like a good Tarot reading. The Tarot offers a unique perspective, shedding light on the nature of our relationships. They are there to guide you on your journey, both personally and romantically. Questions of love are, by far, the most common inquiries made during a Tarot reading. However, many people find themselves disappointed or unsatisfied. The cause of this is often due to the questions that are asked. The most important aspect to a successful Tarot reading, is asking the right questions.

The most common error that is made during a tarot reading is the withholding of information. People tend to do this when they question or test a Tarot reader's ability. It is quite normal to feel apprehensive when working with a new Tarot reader, particularly if it is your first time getting a reading. Under these circumstances, the biggest issue that arises is a lack of open-mindedness. Unfortunately, this doesn't serve you or the Tarot reader. Withholding information can, ultimately, impede that Tarot reader's ability.

When you get a Tarot reading, the best approach is to remain open and have your questions about love prepared before you start the reading. A professional tarot reader understands the cards and has learned how to interpret their meanings. The more specific you get with the tarot reader, the better the they will be able to assist you in your reading. Take the time to clear yourself of any doubt and let the cards guide you. You will be surprised at how much information you can receive when you remain receptive.

The best questions to ask during your first Love Tarot reading, should not be black and white. In other words, asking if someone likes you or if your relationship is going to work out may give the Tarot reader very little to work with. The more open ended you are with your questions, the more information the Tarot reader will be able to receive. Here are some examples of open ended questions that could be useful during a relationship Tarot reading.

1. What is currently influencing my relationship? 
2. What is currently influencing my love interest? 
3. How might I make this relationship grow? 
4. What do I need to understand about myself? 
5. What do I need to understand about my love interest? 
6. What is the potential outcome of this relationship? 
7. What do I need to work on in order to bring a loving relationship into my life?

The list can go on and you can get creative as you want. Asking carefully planned questions can lead to a very fulfilling Tarot reading.
It is also wise to let a Tarot reader know the background of your situation. This is particularly true for Love Tarot readings. By allowing the Tarot reader to fully understand the nature of your situation, the more they will be able to guide you. The history of a situation often enhances the Tarot Reding. It gives the reader a wider perspective and allows them to comprehend the issues that you are facing. It also helps them to discover what has been influencing your relationship.

Finally, it's important to remember that a good Tarot reader will never tell you what to do. They are, in essence, messengers. You are your own master and have your own free will. You have the power to choose your own directions and behaviors. In love matters, you are always your own best guide. While tarot readings can often disclose important influences, you always have the power to make your own decisions and choose your own course of action.

Love Tarot: Knowing When It's Time To Break It Off

When it comes to matters of the heart, nothing can be more powerful than a love tarot reading. Consulting the Tarot during troubled times can certainly help you gain clarity about what's going on in your relationship. Coming to terms with the possibility you're your relationship may not be working can be a painful process.

The Tarot can help you understand why your relationship may not be working. Love tarot readings can offer valuable insight into your own personal process by helping you work out important issues. More importantly, love tarot readings can help you identify when it's time to let a relationship go.

Throughout the Tarot deck, there are numerous cards that can refer to breakups or the need to walk away from your current relationship. One also needs to identify where these cards come up in a tarot spread and what cards surround them. However, there are certain cards in the tarot deck that do literally refer to moving on. These cards are the Eight of Cups and the Ace of Swords reversed.

The Eight of Cups

In Love tarot readings, the Eight of Cups is the card of letting go and moving on. Usually when this card comes up in a tarot spread, there is a strong possibility that you or your partner have made the conscious choice to begin the separation process either emotionally or literally.

The Eight of Cups tarot card often calls for the element of surrender. It can often be a card of grief and sadness. This is particularly true when one attempts to keep a relationship going after it has run its course. The Eight of Cups urges you to experience your feelings of letting go and acknowledge that the past is over. This is the time to look to the future and embrace all that you have learned from your past relationships.

The Ace of Swords Reversed

In a reversed position, the Ace of Swords tarot card has many meanings but when it comes to love tarot, the Ace of Swords can certainly refer to the need to walk away from a relationship. Typically, when this comes up in a tarot reading it usually indicates that a relationship is causing more harm than good. Because it is a sword, it may be an indicator that you may need to "cut" someone out of your life that is causing you harm. When the Ace of Swords comes up in a reversed position, it's time to ask your self some very important questions. Is this relationship destructive? Do you like who you are when you are with your partner? Are your needs getting met? How is your partner treating you, and how are you treating them?

It's also important to note that the Ace of Swords reversed can also refer to past relationships that have failed to be processed or completely let go of. In this case, it may be time to emotionally let go of these past relationships, particularly if they left you feeling hurt or caused you harm. They may be prohibiting you from moving forward or fully embracing your current relationship.

Breaking up is never easy to do. It's always a process and requires a great deal of willingness to let go and trust that love is in the future. Love tarot readings can provide you insight, support and hope. Most importantly, the can be a great tool to help you learn more about yourself and discover what you really want in a relationship.
