Joel asked: Do your tarot cards have anything to say about the prospects for my love-life?
Ah, Joel, for you, anything. To an extent.
Let's see what we can see.
Past - Wands X (reversed) - I asked about your love life and the cards say it's been trouble. It seems that past relationships involved selfishness, deceit, uncertainty, even some cruelty (the card doesn't say on who's part). There are also tones of work you enjoy, one that lead to your potential.
Present - Queen of Swords - This is a card more about you than your love life. Oh, there's embarassment and need, but there's also calm and intuition, wisdom and self-reliance. You speak your mind and have no tolerance for fools.
But you want to know is your future....
Future - Swords VI (reversed) - Your love life apparently has some impediments, among them arrogance, intellectual pride, selfishness. Again, the cards don't say whose arrogance we're talking about.
Yes, but that's not particularly helpful (which certainly can happen with tarot readings), so let's try for some clarification.
Knight of Swords - There is apparently a relationship, one with strife and conflict, but there is fearlessness and courage. Pride is part of this and some anger, perhaps, some old baggage.
King of Swords - Your reading is pretty heavy in the swords royalty and this one argues the recurring theme - courage and bravery (apparently the same individual as the last one), but there's also perseverance and patience. There's honesty and delving to the heart of the issue, and the patience rewarded in the end.
So, what do I think this means?
I think there's a potential for a real relationship with someone who is smart and tough-minded, strong and...a little broken. This someone is intellectually on par, which has not always been the case, and honest, which has also not always been the case. It won't be an easy relationship and will take work and patience, but, if you can do so...this may be a relationship with a real future.
