Love and the Tarot Valentine’s Day 2021

By Lalia Wilson

Psychologists assert that we all crave love. Love is the glue that holds couples, families, and communities together. Not having love means some amount of loneliness or even outright outlaw status. For this February, we will focus down on romantic love between two people, and the Two of Cups.

As an aside there are many cards in the tarot which indicate love: friendships can be the Three of Cups or the Six of Cups. Happy families can be the Ten of Cups. An all-around love card is the Ace of Cups. An advanced practitioner of tarot can demonstrate how any card can be a love card. 

Back to the simple love between two people… you know that love is probably never simple. But let’s look at one method to bring love into your life. You can do this by spending some time viewing and meditating upon the Two of Cups. You have hundreds of options in different tarot decks available now, including many options from tarot apps, which are much lower in cost. Find the perfect love card for you. Either take a physical card or print out the image (which allows you to enlarge it). Spend time every day working with this card.

It is best that you do not name a specific person as the “other” you are seeking. For one thing, that person may not be right for you. More importantly, naming the “other” is a coercive move; metaphysically, you are forcing that person to do something they may not willingly desire.

With this article, we have six different love cards. One commonality is that all depict a couple. That couple, two, is important. In Feng Shui, for example, one way of bringing love is to have a pair of peonies, two, perhaps as a drawing or painting, in your bedroom. One flower, or three, disrupt love. Another Feng Shui love cure is to have a pair of duck figurines. One duck or flower would indicate loneliness; three indicates strife.
