Top 10 Love Tarot Cards

by Brigit on February 16, 2010 in Top 10 Tarot Cards

Lovers

With Valentine’s Day just gone, what better time to look at the top ten Tarot cards that indicate love, romance and relationships!

Lovers —The Lovers! Need I say more?! The Lovers is the ultimate Tarot card for love and represents a unique bond and deep connection between two people. Its presence in a reading reflects a very authentic relationship that is built on mutual trust and respect.

Two of CupsTwo of Cups—The Two of Cups indicates a strong bond between two people and often reflects the commitment made to one another within a monogamous relationship.

Ten of CupsTen of Cups—The Ten of Cups is typical of a happy family within a warm and loving home. It reflects the presence of deep family values and a feeling of completion, having found the perfect partner and having raised the perfect children.

Four of WandsFour of Wands—The Four of Wands is a card of celebration and a safe and secure home environment. It often reflects a wedding, engagement or other event whereby a relationship is becoming more serious.

Ten of PentaclesTen of Pentacles—This Ten reflects a well-established relationship (typically a defacto relationship or marriage) and a solid family life.

Ace of CupsAce of Cups—The Ace of Cups heralds a new relationship filled with excitement, joy and happiness. This is the type of bliss you once experienced as a teenager in love, with butterflies in your stomach and a desire to spend every waking minute with your new love.

Knight of CupsKnight of Cups—The Knight of Cups is your ‘knight in shining armour’ and appears in a reading when you are being courted or romanced by someone special. He /she is attractive, creative and in touch with his/her feelings – very much the SNAG (sensitive new-age guy) type.

EmpressEmpress—The Empress is a beautiful, abundant, fertile and expressive woman. She represents sensuality within a relationship and is indicative of a deeply fulfilling connection between you and your partner.

EmperorEmperor—The Emperor reflects a very sturdy male figure and may suggest the presence of a long-term partner.

HierophantHierophant—The Hierophant represents tradition, structure and religion. This card can therefore indicate a long-term, committed relationship or marriage that is very traditional.

Octavia,

You are welcome. I’m sorry but I can’t find the link to your question page nor is your question very clear to me. In the first one you wanted my interp about a few cards and your second post (which I was updated via e-mail) is slightly confusing.

If your question is in any other page than this please mention it.

Thanks,
Nalini

Hi Nalini. I was asking you to see what you thought of the 2 readings below:

Question #1: Will I have another baby? I drew:
1. Queen of Pentacles; 2. 6 of Cups; 3. 8 of cups

Question #2: Will I hear from a friend again? I drew:
1. Ace of Wands; 2. Hanged Man; 3. Hermit

Thanks!

Then I was stating that I simply do these for practice as I am not trying to have a baby.

Nalini June 15, 2012 at 4:22 pm

Hi Octavia,

Thanks for your clarification. For starters I could not find your question on this site and could only read it on my inbox message. Sorry.

First, both are essentially yes/no questions. Maybe, you would consider rephrasing them?

Getting down to the spreads.

Queen of Pents / 6 of Cups / 8 of Cups

The first card shows a woman who loves being a mother, loves to take care, has a nurturing and giving nature. The second card is often associated with children and childhood pleasures, the playfulness and innocence. The third card indicates abandonment, disappointment, sadness and resignation.

To sum it up my take would be you loved being a mother or would have loved to be it not one, loved to have taken care and nuture. You find things associated with children and childhood a pleasure. Unfortunately things or situation forces you to abandon the idea with some sadness and resignation. So, the answer is no.

Ace of Wands / Hanged Man / Hermit

The first card tells that aces are seeds of possibilities that can grow if given attention and care. The second card indicates a time of suspension. The third card is that of isolation.

My interp would be though there is this germ of idea in your head about wanting to hear from your friend, it will not happen now. The last two cards have bunch of other meanings but to me what leapt out was suspension and isolation and together both being major arcana cards imparts a strong message.

Hope that answers your questions. Maybe others will chime in and point out if I’m off the mark.

Best,
Nalini

Octavia June 16, 2012 at 12:57 am

Thanks Nalini!!! Some of the meanings I know and some I don’t. It is true, I do love being a mom – – just not the struggles of being a single mother. I always wanted another child if I had gotten married again. Turning 40 this year and haven’t even met a potential partner, I gave up on that idea. Your interpretation was right!

Reply

Nalini June 16, 2012 at 1:02 am

Octavia,

So sorry to hear that. Know what you mean, I would love to have a child myself and can hear the clock ticking away.

Can’t say I’m very happy about my right interp on this occassion.

Take care,
Nalini

Octavia June 16, 2012 at 2:00 am

Awww….it’s ok. I do have two. My last pregnancy ended in miscarriage so I had always hoped to try again someday.

The 2nd question about my friend was more for practice. I’m nonchalant about whether I hear from him or not. I read Brigit’s blog about doing 1 card readings and asked if I would hear from a different friend. The card was 10 of cups. I’m confused. Would that indicate that there would be a possible relationship???

I dunno…this whole tarot thing has me confused again. There are so many meanings.

Reply

Nalini June 16, 2012 at 2:18 am

So glad to know that but sorry to hear about your miscarriage. Read and hear that it is always a traumatic experience for women.

10 of cups is also about hope among other things, so it could mean that you are hoping to hear from that friend. Not very different from the 3 card spread, except it gave you a little more details. Now, if you do a CC Spread it will give you further details, so on and so forth…

Trust me, it happens all the times. Only recently I did multiple self spreads on multiple issues and goofed up with every single one. The reason being only saw the positive things and ignored the negative aspects. Things turned out to be very, very bad. So the cards were all correct, I was unable to read them properly.

Happens with some of the very experienced ones too sometimes or the other. So, relax we are on the process of learning. will goof up, will be stumped and learn from our mistakes. :)

Thanks so much Nalini! I’m glad you said that because I wanted to ask about something else, but didn’t want to be overbearing! LOL

I seem to get a lot of Major Arcana cards when I do a spread. For example, after reading Brigit’s blog about doing less complicated spreads and she used as an example: Should I go to the wedding. I asked the question should I buy the shoes I want. The shoes are $49, down from $99 (yaay haha) but finances are kind of tight. This is what I pulled: The World, Temperance and the 6 of Pentacles.

My interpretation was that a change is coming, be patient and ummm….someone will possibly help me get the shoes or give them to me as a gift???

@ Octavia: You are welcome. If you want me to share anything more of what I’ve learnt (mainly from Biddy’s page) can meet you at the site recommended by Biddy or you could lemme know your e-mail or something or (hope not breaking any rules here) can join the Aeclectic Tarot Forum (I’m there).

I need someone to interpret this reading below.
The question was “Should I forget about my ex-boyfriend?” I think that he is my soulmate but it seems as though he is never coming back to me. Anyway, here are the cards that I pulled.
1.) Ace of Wands
2.) Nine of Cups
3.) Ten of Pentacles

Any insight will be helpful.

Reply

Akira July 21, 2012 at 1:26 am

Brigit or Nalini
I went to the page that discussed what not to ask the tarot so I had to do my reading over again. My question this time was “What role do I play in my ex-boyfriend’s life?” Here are the cards that I pulled.
1.) King of cups (My ex-boyfriend is exactly like this card. I was shocked)
2.) 10 of swords
3.) 3 of cups
None of the cards were reversed. What do you think about this reading and how does it affect me? Thanks!

Reply

Nalini July 23, 2012 at 10:51 pm

Akira,

What is it basically that you want the deck to tell you? If there will be reconciliation between you and your boyfriend or what role you play in his life?

If it’s the former then why don’t you try the “Will I Get Back With My Ex Tarot Reading” as suggested by Biddy? You can pull a single card for each position and get a clearer picture.

Here is the spread:

1.How the relationship used to be

2. What lead to the end of the relationship

3. What was the significance of the relationship

4. Where the relationship currently stands

5. What you want from the relationship

6. What your ex wants from the relationship

7. What obstacles need to be overcome to renew the relationship

8. Is this relationship ‘meant to be’

9. Where the relationship is headed in the near future

10. What is your best course of action

However, based on the cards which you’ve pulled my take take would be. Cups are passive and thus the King of Cups could mean you may remain as someone passive in his life. The next card could mean that the worse seems to be over (was the breakup messy and painful?) and he may consider you as a friend in given time. Please note that I’m a beginner and my words may not be the ultimate.

You mentioned that none of the cards were reversed, so do you read Rx or they didn’t appear Rx?

Reply

Akira July 24, 2012 at 4:52 am

Nalini,

I performed the Will I Get Back With My Ex Tarot Reading” because I do want him back. Here are the cards that I pulled.
1.) The Chariot
2.) Four of Swords (I broke up with him. He didn’t want to. I know that it hurt him very much because he was head of heels in love with me. At the time I was afraid to open my heart because I didn’t want to get hurt. I regret that decision very much.)
3.) The World Reversed
4.) Page of Swords Reversed
5.) The Seven of Wands Reversed
6.) Page of Pentacles
7.) Page of Cups
8.) Five of Cups
9.) The Magician
10.) The Empress

What do you think about this reading and how does it affect me? Like I stated earlier I do believe that this man is my soulmate. If this reading indicates that this isn’t case then I will forget about him. Thanks in advance!

what do you think ten of earth as an outcome would exactly be if it was followed and clarified by ace of earth 2 of cups and then major arcana 15? Also the tower and 10 of cups fell out together….I would appreciate an answer to either question thanks!

Reply

Brigit September 10, 2012 at 9:44 am

It sounds very positive. Certainly a focus on creating a committed relationship and putting your plans and goals into action around love.

Tower and 10 of Cups – might be a personal crisis that brings you together.

hi may i ask what does it mean if the the last card in celtic cross is THE TOWER? followed by FOUR OF WANDS?

Reply

Brigit October 7, 2012 at 8:44 pm

The Tower simply means that destruction will bring change and creation. Everything may fall apart at the seams, but it will create a better environment for celebration, family and the home life (4 of Wands).

Dorothy December 3, 2012 at 3:23 am

hi…. i need some clarification on my spread… i did a 6-cards spread for my past love and e 5th was “when will a new love appear in my life again?”

i drew “the lovers”.

then in a separate 2-card spread, i asked: –
1. when will i find love again? = page swords (inversed)
2. what will he be like? = 6 pentacles.

thanks =)

Reply

Brigit December 3, 2012 at 11:02 am

I would say that the Lovers is a good sign of meeting the right person in the next relationship. The Page of Swords represents Autumn, but the reversal may suggest some delays around this. Six of Pentacles is a very giving and generous card – he has something you need and has a gift for you.

Hi biddy,

I was wondering if you could help me. I recently broke up with my boyfriend. However, since then we still talk everyday. My reason for breaking up was because of my own insecurities. We get along amazing. In fact I could even say he is my best friend. However to make a long complicated story short, I had to give myself a break so I would stop sabotaging what we had. I did a 3 card spread on 10/4/12 and got:

1. 9 of swords 2. 9 of wands 3. Ace of cups

Since then I have asked about our relationship on 3 seperate ocassion and each time I have pulled Heirophant. Can you help me interpret this?

Reply

Brigit December 7, 2012 at 3:34 pm

9 of Swords is the self-sabotage, as is the 9 of Wands, really. Ace of Cups is a good sign for a new relationship – either a new one with him or someone else. But you need to break out of this cycle first.

Of course, I can’t really do your reading justice here in a short comment. You’re welcome to submit it for an in-depth interpretation with me here – http://www.biddytarot.com/tarotreading/tarot-reading-interpretation/

My question: What’s the potential of me becoming pregnant?
My cards were…
[Past]- The Moon (reversed)
[Present]- Eight of Pentacles
[Future]- The Empress

Please help me with my answer or interpretation.

Reply

Brigit January 22, 2013 at 7:57 pm

The Empress is a very motherly card and is often associated with pregnancy. It looks like you’re probably getting more in tune with your menstrual cycle (Moon reversed) and learning more about your most fertile times (Eight of Pentacles) which will lead to positive outcomes. Good luck!

I love a guy , first we are perfectly best friend , and then I love him :))) He’s a Aqua and I’m a Leo ,
lately , I said I love him ( I drew 2 cards about say or not say , the say is the sun and not say is 9 swords ) and he didn’t say anything but telling me that he still love his ex :))
I’m disappointed then I drew 3 cards :)) I want to know what he feels about me and thinks about me :))
and then : 4 wands / Knight of cups / 10 pens
I’ve recently asked my cards about the past / present / future of this relationship
and then : king of cups / Queen of wands / 10 of cups
I don’t know how to think right now :)) can you explain all the meaning to me :)) because what i think is he’s obviously loves me but in reality now we act like we don’t know each other :) and it hurts me alot :(
I’m not really good at english cuz I’m Asian and I’m totally new about tarot :)) so if I have mistakes just ignore it haha tks a lot :)

Hello I was on your site and like it very much..) I have a question and wondering if you could help me out.
I was doing my cards today and my question was will my boyfriend (ex) and I get married?
as I was shuffling the knight of cups fell out, I kept shuffling and then the temperance fell out and then I finally drew the 2 of cups.. could you help me understand the meanings please?
We broke up for reasons of long distance.. and we couldn’t seem to overcome. But I believe that this fellow could of been the one as our relationship was pretty special..
your advice would be much welcomed..)

Birgit, Hi, This is my time posting a tarot question. I used a 3 card spread. ( Rider Waite ) I would like a little clarification on how to understand and/or interpret these cards in a new relationship because they don’t look like ” relationship cards”??? I hope that doesn’t sound dumb. lol But my question was : What will become of this new relationship between me and this guy. We met about a month ago. The cards came out in this order:
1. Past – The World
2. Present – Wheel of Fortune
3. Future- The Chariot
The cards seem to be positive but I don’t know how to interpret in into a relationship between two people? I hope that makes sense. I’m kind of new at this.
Thanks,
Michele :)

Hello I’m new to the tarot and is the first time I post here. I have a question that hopefully you could help me with i did the celtic spread and I had: 1.the two of cups, 2. the Lovers, 4. the king of cups, 6. the Ace of cups and 8. the sun. I have recently started dating this guy and I was wondering what the cards are trying to tell me in regards of this and I was particularly curious about the combination between the 2 of cups, the lovers and the Ace of cups, as is the first time i had them together in a reading.
Many thanks!

Hello,

Thanks for clarifying these cards in regard to relationships Biddy. Just wondering if anyone can give me some pointers. I’m having a bit of communication problems with a potential love interest. What do you guys think of the following Celtic Cross spread is trying to say?

1. You or your question : 9 of swords
2. What crosses you : the emperor
3. Basis of your question: ace of pentacles
4. Past: 9 of wands
5. What could be: 8 of wands

6. future: 4 of wands (yay!!)
7. Fears: high priestess
8. Environment: queen of cups
9. Dreams/Hopes: The moon
10. Final outcome: 10 of cups (Yay!!)

* I put down the rest of my stack facing up and the page of cups is there (this card is the card, I associate the guy with- so I thought that was a good thing.)

Thanks in advance guys :)

Hello,
Over the years I have gone through phases of using the Tarot to help give me insight. I feel that I am now in a position to incorporate it into my life on a deeper level, and what better way to practice than to ask about love…I asked how the guy I recently started seeing feels about me. I pulled 3 cards (but 4 jumped out while I was shuffling).
For the cards I pulled, 1st was the 2 of clubs. 2nd The Magician. 3rd was the 5 of coins. I looked up the individual meanings and my intuition tells me that he can see things falling into place, especially creatively, if the relationship progresses, but is held back (consumed maybe?) with past disappointments and his financial position. Would this be a correct interpretation or am I missing something that should be obvious?
For the jumper cards, there were four. 1st the 7 of clubs. 2nd the King of Coins. 3rd the Ace of Swords. 4th the 10 of Cups. I feel this is overall positive, thanks to the 10 of cups. Perhaps there are some trust issues from his past and he is unsure of what to think, but there is a sense of comfort and hope?
For a little background, his father passed in February, and there were unresolved issues. He has also been feeling like a large number of his friends have acted in ways that make him want to protect himself and not be as generous as he would normally be. I also know many of his ex-girlfriends were unstable and draining. He is a very creative person, (I would say I am creative as well, which ties into my interpretation of the cards.). For myself, my father passed many years ago, I work with the deceased, and he sees me as “calm.” I told him I felt I came into his life to help him. It could be temporary, but I am a romantic and idealist, and would like there to be a beautiful outcome. Like him, I would still like to be emotionally prepared if there isn’t a rainbow. So should I invest and be patient? Or should I just help him through this difficult period and move on when he’s more centered?
How do I interpret the jumpers with the cards I pulled?
I greatly appreciate any insight you are able to offer. I will also post this in the forum you mentioned in previous posts in case this isn’t the appropriate venue.
Thank you!

I wrote this whole thing and somehow it got deleted :( I’ll give it another try and I hope it doesn’t post twice (I really liked how it turned up the first time, I hope this time around I manage to write it as closely as possible :) ).

I was saying, I really like Biddy and her blog, it has been an amazing tool for me over the years, and that’s why when I had this, I guess we could call it “epiphany”, my first thought was I had to come here and share it here, on this very blog entrance.

About a month ago I did a reading regarding the future/potential of a relatioship and draw the Strength as final outcome (Celtic Cross). For some reason none of the traditional meanings seemed to fit to me for this particular reading, it just didn’t make any sense, so I decided to give the whole reading my best interpretation, but kept it (took a picture of it :) ) for further interpretation, just in case something else came to my mind, and that’s exactly what happened, about two days ago I did a reading for a friend of mine regarding work, and she got the Strength card in the spread, as I was picking up the cards to put them away, I help the Strength card in my hand and I started to look at the card and really noticed it, I must have seen this card hundreds of times, but this time around if felt as if I was seeing it for the very first time, and that’s when I got my aha! moment: I realized the woman depicted in the card looks like a bride, she’s wearing a white dress, empire style if I may add ;) and she’s wearing a crown of flowers on her head (reminded me of Jenny in Forrest Gump), also, all those flowers around her waist somehow gave me the idea of a bouquet. Then there’s that infinity symbol over her head, which gave me the idea of “till death do us part”, if that’s something your religion says in marriage ceremonies, and that “forever” idea, “neverending” idea, also made me think of soul mates or some sort of karmic couple. Besides all this, I thought the lion and the woman seem to be some sort of Beauty and the Beast couple, so I believe this is about a non-traditional type of union, like people from different religions, interrracial couples, gay couples, people who have been divorced, widow/widower, single parents, anything that is not your traditional marriage. Also, I think this is about a couple that really make a great match, something on the lines of “together we’re strong, apart we’re weak”, they seem to really be united and work really well as a team, and they seem to have been through a lot together and they’ve got stronger in the process and anything they had to overcome only made them grow closer.

I don’t know if this interpretation has ocurred to anyone here, but it happened to me and incidentially that fits like a glove with the particular reading I was talking about at the beginning of my post. I never saw this card this way before but from now on I will be interpreting it this way :) and I thought I had to share this here, since this is a post about love cards. Hope you found it helpful :)

Hey, that’s an awesome experience to share and an interesting perspective. Reading peoples interpretations is a great way to achieve a broader scope of understanding.

Hi :)
Been doing tarot for a little while now but just want to get someone elses thoughts on things. I did a relationship/life Celtic Cross reading for myself the other night and I got for near future: 10 Cups, Ace of Cups & 8 Pentacles.
Then in the ‘myself’ section, I got: 2 Cups, 3 Cups & Strength
And for final outcome I got: King Swords, Queen Cups & Knight Wands.
Can anybody tell me what this all means from someone more experienced than I am?
Still learning so I easily misinterpret the meanings.
Love and Blessings
xoxo

When reading cards we all look at them a little differently
I had someone read a spread she had created
I am curious on your take of the ten of pentacles crossing judgement
So Judgement was me and what was crossing obviously was the ten of pentacles

Another quickie if I may is the Devil came up surely a card that each reader will interpret differently in this spread it was to represent what I think I need and I am so curious how you would have read the Devil in that position

It might not be going anywhere fast… but a new relationship may be on the horizon.

Thank you Bridget for helping me understand the message that spread was trying to tell me. I am very pleased with how quick you responded back to my message :) and I do hope deep down inside that a commiting relationship comes out of it.
