In the beginning, all love begins as immature love, in which two or more people come together and figure out how to love themselves and each other within the context of a new relationship. Sometimes, love never evolves, and fizzles. These affairs of the heart are like fireworks that explode into the night sky, beautiful and intense, before falling to ashes leaving only bittersweet memories. However, some affairs of the heart become stars when they ignite in the sky.
Today’s Weekly Tarot Forecast is for you.
Your weekly Tarot Forecast:
Past: Page of Cups
Present: The Sun
Future: Four of Wands
Advice: Queen of Wands
Some relationships are just not meant to survive indefinitely. They begin and end with the Page of Cups never fully gaining momentum beyond the innocent and fresh new love phase. This is okay. Not all relationships should transform into partnerships. Some relationships are simply best in short, delicious bites like desserts. Some relationships have the energy and the dedication it takes to evolve from a fleeting tryst to a long-term partnership.
What kind of relationship do you have? What kind of relationship do you want? Are you on the road to get there or has your path diverted towards an unknown outcome? As a Tarot reader and psychic, I’m often asked for relationship advice because the desire to continue growing with the one you love is a common question a lot of people ask at some point.
The key to a successful long-term partnership is to understand that the Page of Cups isn’t sustainable. Ultimately, it’s kind of nice being with someone who knows your mom’s secret cold remedy for when you’re feeling under the weather. It’s delightful being with someone who knows how you make your coffee. It’s sublime to just exist with your lover. In a long-term partnership, the Page of Cups abandons chasing the feeling of falling in love to experiencing the existence of being in love as represented by the Sun.
At this point, a lot of relationships aren’t sure where to go from here, because the type of excitement you receive in being in a long-term relationship is different than the roller coaster ride of falling in love. Because having known someone doesn’t always give lovers the freedom to continue growing as independent spirits. Because growing as independent spirits sometimes means growing apart. Because, it is at this point, that the mundane grind of daily events, lack of money, and lack of freedom wear down a relationship at its weakest points.
So how does one transition from the enjoyment under the Sun and into the celebration of unity as expressed by the Four of Wands? Through the Queen of Wands.
The advice is to be the person you want to fall in love with every day. Be kind. Be compassionate. Inspire. Love. Be loved. Don’t take for granted and don’t be taken for granted. Don’t allow the daily grind to wear down your love for each other and don’t allow it to make you dull. Find new ways to grow independently and with each other. Prioritize your love for each other over your occasional unhappiness with the temporary circumstances you find yourselves in.
