Weekly Forecast: To Transition from Love to Commitment

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.

Weekly Forecast: Moving On from Past Mistakes

You made a vow. It’ll never happen again. You won’t allow it. This time, it’ll be different. You’re better prepared.

We’ve all been there. The pangs of regret are life’s growing pains. They’re useful; not pleasant. An aversion to repeating them is not only natural but completely understandable. But what is the outcome for the path that you’re on?

Today’s Weekly Tarot Forecast is for you.

Your weekly Tarot Forecast:

Past: Five of Cups

Present: Three of Wands

Future: Two of Cups

Advice: King of Cups

The dominant suit represented in today’s weekly forecast is Cups which is a reminder of the strength and power emotions carry and the energy emotions inspire in ourselves and others. Today, we’re living with the painful reminders carried over from our past mistakes represented by the Five of Cups. Life is beautiful and messy because we are beautiful and messy.

Sometimes, that messiness is comprised of moments that we’d prefer to soon forget. Our histories are filled with the good, the bad, and the downright ugly. Yet, you know to hold onto your regrets and past mistakes as an oath you’ve made with yourself: never again.

And so you’ve taken precautions. You’ve noted the lessons that needed to be learned. You’re better prepared and far less naive. You know, deep down, that you’ve got this. The Three of Wands is the totem from that oath you’ve struck. In the present position, the Three of Wands acknowledges the thought and growth that has brought you to this moment.

As we gaze into your future, we see Two of Cups, which indicates that the measures you’ve taken and the lessons you’ve heeded have paid off.  You won’t be doomed to repeat the same regretful mistakes. You’ve moved on, more weathered, but also with more grit and a better understanding than you had before. You’re a far more balanced and well rounded person because of your history; not in spite of it. You also have a better understanding of what you can survive.

However, it’s important to remind ourselves that the desire to learn from past mistakes is, in part, a commitment to make new ones. The advice here is presented as King of Cups which is to be kind to yourself. Your future isn’t going to be without regret. Mistakes will still happen. There are still lessons yet to be learned.

What’s important here is that you embrace yourself with gentle compassion and understanding. Forgive yourself. Love yourself. Your dignity will remain intact. You will survive this, too.
