15 Apr A Change Of Pace | Weekend Love Reading | 4/15 – 4/17
Have you been experiencing an inner conflict around matters of the heart lately?
Or maybe you’re starting to feel bored with the same old thing day in and day out.
Whether you’re single or committed, it seems you’ve recently become aware of a pattern in your love life that you want to change.
If you’ve been wondering how to spice things up romantically or break free from indecision, this weekend could provide a solution.
Right now, you may feel as though you can neither move ahead nor allow things to stay the same.
Talk about frustrating!
If all of your options seem to have a downside to them right now, then the cards have a powerful solution for you this weekend.
Let’s take a look at your love reading and uncover the answer together.
Card #1: The Hanged Man | Don’t Miss Out
What are you willing to do for love? Are your sacrifices healthy for you?
The Hanged Man represents making a sacrifice to gain something greater, getting a new perspective, or waiting for the right timing in order to take action.
But this weekend, The Hanged Man is showing up reversed, letting you know that you might be holding out for a perfect time that will never arrive.
If you’ve been waiting until all your ducks are in a row before taking action, it could be keeping you stuck on the sidelines while opportunities slip through your fingers.
Is there someone you want to ask out but you’re nervous about being rejected?
Or is there something you recently learned about your partner that changes the nature of your relationship?
It seems you’ve recently gained clarity around love and relationships. You’ve seen things in a new way that has given you powerful insight.
The Hanged Man reversed suggests you have the information you need to move ahead. You know what needs to change in your life and you know what to do next. Now it’s time to put your insights into action.
If you’re in a relationship, perhaps you’ve realized that the sacrifices you’ve been making simply aren’t paying off the way you had hoped. It could be that your needs aren’t aligned with your partner’s needs and one or both of you is giving too much.
If you’re single, you might have gotten some clarity about why a relationship didn’t work out in the past, and could be feeling like you have the information you need to do things differently in the future.
However, in either case, it seems that something is still holding you back from confidently taking the next step.
Card #2: Two Of Wands | Playing It Safe
Have you accepted the idea that your love life is destined to be somewhat disappointing?
Whether you are single and have given up on the idea of finding anyone, or committed and stuck in an unfulfilling routine, the Two of Wands reversed is pointing out that you may be settling for something you just don’t feel passionate about.
When the Two of Wands is in the upright position, it symbolizes a desire to discover new things and explore your opportunities in life and love.
However, in its reversed position, it means that something is causing you to hesitate, play it safe, and squash your adventurous spirit.
Do your options feel limited right now?
If you’re single, maybe you’re convinced that only heartbreak awaits you in the dating world, so you’ve closed your heart down, suppressing the part of you that is hungry for connection.
If you’re in a relationship, the Two of Wands reversed could mean that you’re settling for a relationship that doesn’t really turn you on because it’s your safest bet. It might make sense on a practical level, but it’s no longer helping you grow.
It could also mean that your relationship is generally happy, but has recently gotten a bit dull and boring. You could be spending too much time on your smartphones or working, rather than genuinely connecting and nourishing your relationship.
Whatever your situation is, something in your love life is making you feel limited rather than helping you thrive.
Depending on where you stand at the moment, it could be that you need to reevaluate your relationship goals or make a better plan.
As your first card, The Hanged Man suggests, you know what needs to be done, yet the Two of Wands indicates there’s something in the way causing you to hesitate.
Are there financial or emotional risks that could happen if you act on your inner truth right now?
Is it possible that you’re feeling afraid of the unknown?
Thankfully, your next card could provide the missing element you need to get into alignment and start experiencing more pleasure and fulfillment!
Card #3: The Empress | Surrounded By Abundance
The appearance of The Empress as your final card offers a beautiful and elegant remedy to your current love situation.
You are being reminded to simply choose people and experiences that make you feel nourished, secure, and happy.
Perhaps you’ve gotten a bit disconnected from yourself.
Have you been connecting with someone who brings you down and makes you forget how capable, desirable, and competent you are?
Have you found yourself laughing less often and feeling the drudgery of your routine stealing all the wonderful life-force from your being?
If so, The Empress is here to remind you to reconnect with what brings you joy and pleasure.
The Empress is at ease on her throne. She does not struggle with things that cause her stress or drain her energy. Instead, she allows pleasure, abundance, and the loving nature of the Universe to be her guide.
Where do you feel the most abundance in your life?
Which connections bring you the most joy and pleasure?
The Empress is a sign to ask yourself these questions and give yourself more of whatever answers you find.
And as you lean into what makes you feel the best, you’ll find that your love life will begin to reflect your abundant state of being.
Also, if you are single or in a happy relationship, The Empress is a strong indication that romance is on the way this weekend.
In that case, make room for love and celebrate!
This card is a strong reminder that fulfillment is available to you. All you have to do is get in touch with the things that support and nourish you.
The twelve stars in the crown of The Empress symbolizes her connection to the divine. This is also a sign that when you’re true to your nature, the Universe will care for your every need.
Don’t worry about fixing anything right now. Don’t argue or try to convince anyone of anything.
Just focus on what makes you feel relaxed, supported, and nourished and the rest will follow.
Taking A Softer Approach
If you’ve been playing it safe in love and relationships and feel uneasy about charging ahead, then now is the time to focus on what truly makes you happy.
You don’t have to make any big changes or decisions right now. Instead, take time this weekend to do things that make you feel good.
Go to the park or hike along a riverside. Turn off your phone for an afternoon and sit under a tree with a good book.
Or connect with friends who lift you up and remind you how big and full of adventure life can be.
If you’re in a relationship, don’t allow routine to rule your life this weekend. Break your usual habits and do something a bit luxurious or extra pleasurable.
And if your partner isn’t available, don’t let that stop you from enjoying the things that make you happy.
It’s important to lean into your softer side this weekend and focus on taking care of yourself.
If you do, you will reemerge feeling renewed, and have all the energy you need to take your next steps on your journey of love.
