08 Jul Is It Too Much Pressure? | Weekend Tarot Love Reading | 7/8 – 7/10
Hello Tarot Friends,
This is Jonathan with your Weekend Tarot Love Reading.
You’re going to want to pay very close attention to today’s reading. I’m sorry to say it’s not filled with fairy tale love and romance.
Rather, it’s a reminder to take a sober look at your love life. Whether you are single or in a committed relationship, it’s time for a reality check.
Yes, there is a possibility for a fling in the mix. But truth be told, you are better served to get clear in your priorities, and take an honest look at your relationship if you’re in one.
While this isn’t the most cozy of love readings, it’s an important one. So let’s explore what’s happening in your love life right now.
Card #1: Ten Of Wands | Too Many Burdens
The Ten of Wands represents burden, struggle, and the responsibilities required to create what you want in life.
The Ten of Wands in a love reading is a sign you might feel so overburdened that your love life may be suffering.
You could be feeling exhausted from work and other challenges around you right now. With everything else going on, romance might feel like struggle rather than something joyful.
If you’re in a relationship, it could feel smothering and overly complicated.
It’s also possible you’re having to put in all the work in the relationship. On the one hand, if this is a short term scenario where your partner is immobilized by surgery, or going through a crisis of some kind, you can probably get through it.
On the other hand, if they’ve never taken responsibility for the health of the relationship, then it might be time to consider some kind of intervention. Whether that means working through things together, or bringing the relationship to an end.
If you’re single, the Ten of Wands is a sign there are other areas of your life you should put your attention on. Romance might not fit into your busy or hectic schedule. So rather than trying to force it, give your love life a break for the time being.
Take care of your responsibilities, put your life in order, and then open yourself up for love again.
It’s important to take care of yourself and stand on your own two feet. So take this week to dial your life in, and when the right person arrives you’ll be more than ready to meet them from a place of self empowered stability.
Love can’t be rushed or forced, so better to put your attention where it will best serve you at this time.
But don’t be surprised if a tempting opportunity shows up in the near future. Your next card is a sign of passionate and youthful love.
Card #2: Page Of Wands | Fiery And Fun… But Immature
The Page of Wands symbolizes adventure, excitement, and might indicate a passionate love connection.
The Page of Wands is filled with vitality and joyful exploration. As a potential lover, the Page of Wands tends to represent enthusiasm and fiery romances.
But the Page of Wands can also be fickle when it comes to love. One moment they are hot for you, the next they are cold.
In fact, if you are single or just met someone, the Page of Wands type of person might be worth steering clear of, unless you are okay with a short but passionate love affair.
Particularly considering your previous card, the Ten of Wands, if things are feeling overwhelming already, a trickster type of lover might not be the best medicine.
If you’re in a relationship, the Page of Wands can add a great boost of playfulness and romance for you and your partner.
That being said, the Page of Wands usually represents a younger, less mature kind of love. So if you haven’t already established deep and healthy intimacy, the Page of Wands could indicate that your partner is somewhat immature.
If you consider the previous card, it’s possible this immaturity is part of why you might feel like you’re putting more into the relationship than your partner is.
Relationships and individuals go through different cycles of development. So if you’re with an immature partner, but you love them, it’s possible they could grow into a fuller version of themselves…
But how long this could take, or even if it will happen, is not guaranteed.
With all the ruckus and overwhelm from your first card, and the exciting but immature aspects of your second card, it’s no wonder your third card represents worry and uncertainty.
Card #3: Eight Of Swords | Feeling Totally Trapped
The Eight of Swords is a sign of exhaustion, betrayal, and feeling victimized. When it comes to a love reading, the Eight of Swords is a clear warning sign.
There is nothing pleasant about the Eight of Swords card image. The woman is tied up blindfolded, and surrounded by a prison of swords.
This imagery can indicate there is something you are not seeing which could be keeping you trapped and confined.
If you’re in a relationship, you might be in a dynamic where one person stifles and overpowers the other. The emotional overwhelm associated with this card could have you feeling paralyzed and hopeless.
It’s also possible you’re unwilling to see the truth of your situation. Even if you know something is wrong, you might not be willing to come to terms with what it could mean for you and your relationship.
The unfortunate truth is you’ll have to face the reality of your situation.
Getting support from people who know and love you, or talking with someone who can give you guidance could be very helpful here.
If you’re not able to “see the forest for the trees,” it can make a challenging situation seem hopeless.
Taking a step back and getting a bigger perspective about your situation can go a long way in finding a solution.
If you’re single right now, you might be overly worried about your love life. Nothing is working out, filling you with dread and anxiety.
Not to worry, this is just a momentary experience. Get down to work, as your first card indicates, and when you look back up, the view will be very different.
If on the other hand you’ve met someone, the Eight of Swords is a crystal clear sign this is not the person to be with. Any mind games or sense of foreboding should be marked as glaring red flags.
If we consider your first two cards, it’s completely possible there is a serious imbalance in your relationship right now. Somebody needs to grow up in the connection, and if you’re not careful, the Eight of Swords is a sign it could get even more complicated.
If you’re single, the most important thing right now is to get your own ducks in a row. Rather than worrying about love, put your attention on getting solidly positioned in your own life.
While there isn’t a lot of romance in this reading, the hard truths that want to come out can pave the way to brighter days.
Returning To Clarity
Your reading this week is imploring you to strengthen your inner stability and regain some much needed clarity.
Your first card, the Ten of Wands is a sign you are feeling overwhelmed by life right now. If you’re single, it’s simply a nudge to stay focused on your own stuff and to put love on the back burner for now.
If you’re in a relationship, it’s possible you are carrying all of the weight in the relationship. If this is the case, then your second card, the Page of Wands, could be a sign your partner is needing to grow up.
The Page of Wands can also indicate some fun loving romance is on the way. But with the youthfulness of the card, it might not be a lasting kind of love.
Your final card, the Eight of Swords, signals a perfect storm which might leave you feeling totally paralyzed.
You might not see everything that is going on, or you could feel totally powerless to stand up for yourself.
This is your sign! Stand up, look squarely at the situation before you, and be willing to honor your truth.
You deserve quality love with someone who respects and meets you halfway. Maybe it’s time to start asking for that, or maybe it’s time to look elsewhere.
Remember that you are loved eternally and supported in unseen ways.
