Let Tarot Help You Move On When You Need To

Romance In My Youth

When I was much younger and single, my world revolved around exciting dates, flowers and chocolates-filled romance, moon-lit walks and candle-lit dinners with my boyfriends.  Sigh.  Youth.  Those heady days came with plenty of heartbreak, disappointment and mismatched expectations that accompanied these relationships.  Thankfully, with time, experience and <er-hemm>, maturity, putting some of these relationships behind me became increasingly easier.  I knew over the years that somehow, the Universe will hold my hand through these relationships and present the right romantic opportunity to me in its own time and pace.  And it did.

Difficult To Let Go

As a Tarot reader, there’s never a day that would pass by without at least one question from a client with regard to romance and relationships.  I often joke to my friends that I am starting to feel like the “Doctor of Love”.  Even when I was doing Tarot readings at a public event geared towards school-leavers and mid-career job-switchers, 90% of the questions asked were about relationship!  

I do welcome them because truly,  I know from experience how difficult it is to maneuver the complicated dynamics of 2 different people with different aspirations attempting to find a middle ground within which they both can thrive and grow as a couple.   It is hard work.  If you are blessed to have found the right person, you’d definitely know it without doubt.   However, amongst those who haven’t found the right partner and had to manage the disappointments and emotional pain that followed, there were some clients who have clung to that heartbreak for a very long time.

The following are a few key Tarot cards that reflect the emotional state of these clients who are still clinging on to the past and encourage them to make a commitment to heal from their wounds, put the past behind them and start on a clean slate so that they can readily embrace a new relationship when the Universe presents that opportunity to them. 

The Tower Reversed
The Tower in the upright position is a reflection of sudden and unexpected changes, turmoil and adversity that is necessary to rock one’s comfort zone enough to allow for opportunities of growth and regeneration. In the reversed, the Tower signifies one’s unwillingness to accept these changes and painfully delaying the process of change. 

 Death Reversed
Death in the upright position is a reflection of transformation from a major phase of one’s life.  In the reversed, Death signifies the reluctance to let go of the past and a refusal to acknowledge that the transformation is needed to bring about a new and brighter future.

6 Of Swords Reversed
6 of Swords in the upright position signifies an important period of transition that one has to make which requires him or her to leave the past completely behind.  In the reversed position, it is a reflection of one experiencing the challenge of not being able to move on from the past, and allowing the past to catch up with him or her due to unresolved issues.

3 of Swords Reversed
3 of Swords in the upright position indicate that one is going through emotional hurt and disappointment.  In the reversed, it indicates that one is still suffering from the pain of that loss and heartbreak and is unable to move on. The heart is always the hardest thing to heal isn’t it?

The Devil
Tired of the reversed cards yet?  Then, there’s the Devil. The Devil represents one’s fears as well as feelings of negativity and entrapment.  In a relationship reading, one could be stuck in an unhealthy relationship yet may be unable to move on from it because of the perception that he or she can continue to wait out the pain whilst attempting to resolve the conflicts and tension.  Perhaps one also has fears that when he or she moves on from that unhealthy relationship, there will not be that perfect relationship waiting for him or her out there.  I remembered reading for a client who was in an abusive relationship.  She was of the opinion that she “deserved” her partner’s verbal and physical abuse because she thought that defined true love.  The Devil card was in her Tarot spread.  Needless to say, the advice that the card wanted to give her then was to start re-evaluating her relationship goals.

Strength And Commitment To Move On

I have a strong belief that the Universe allows such relationship challenges to happen along the way on our journey to find the right partner, so that we can hone our communication skills, honesty, openness, and the determination to make the right relationships work in the long term with the right partner.   
Before one can commit to the right partner in the long term, one has to commit to heal completely from past relationship wounds, hurts and disappointments.  When one door closes, always know that there will be another one that will open, and that door that opens may be the right one.   How can one give the right partner a chance, and embrace the opportunity of a better and more meaningful relationship when one still clings on to the residual negativity of the past?

So which Tarot card have you come across in your readings, either as a client or a Tarot reader yourself, that's not within this list, which had presented a clear message to you, to move on ?
