The question I received from E. is: Am I close to finding my soul-mate?
Thank you for your question E.! Now, before we start the reading, I would like to remind you that my tarot readings are for clarifying a present moment or situation. You can read more about my approach on tarot here. I would like to note that your question is well put, so here we go with laying the cards:
Setting the intention for each role of the pulled out cards and using intuition, the arcana are as follows:
O The Fool – it represents you: this arcanum tells about a new beginning! And just as you formulated your question, you really sense it and you actually wish for a new beginning in your love life! The Fool shows how you’re starting a new phase in your life, when you have the complete freedom to choose the way! The Fool carries with him a bag which symbolizes the previous experiences. Therefore, I could say that you’ve learned your previous lessons and right now you are moving forward!
XIII The Death or the Arcanum without a name – it represents the challenge: this indicates that you are undergoing radical changes in your life, on different layers, with the aim of your complete transformation. This new phase indicated previously by the Fool is totally different than anything you’ve ever experienced until now! The challenge is big, but you are prepared for it!! You want the big change in your love life! You are attracting it to you!
The three solution cards:
IV The Emperor – the Emperor draws the attention on your material needs. You have to take care of yourself and to support yourself without waiting for this from anybody else! Besides reaching material stability, you should also work on your emotional balance, because one doesn’t come without the other! It might feel lonely at times, but really know that this is not the case! You are not left out by yourself, but you are given time on your own to build up a stronger you! Because only a stronger you, completely healed and on your own feet could attract a partner of the same value, the one that you want and you desire!
IX The Hermit – The second solution card is in agreement with the previous one, the Emperor. You have to give yourself time and to learn about yourself! You cannot expect this from anybody else! You cannot expect a partner to come up and fill up your needs, unless you do it for yourself first. A new strong partner should come as an equal, not as an bandage for your wounds.
XVI The Tower – Beautiful prospects ahead! Basically, this arcanum shows that once the conditions mentioned above are satisfied, something is going to immediately appear in your love life. Maybe you know the saying: when the student is ready, the teacher appears! You can actually apply it in any domain of your life: jobs, romantic partners etc. When you have learned your previous lessons, the next new beautiful phase that makes you grow further will just come you path! There is no doubt about this! We are here only to evolve and grow further, involution is not a choice, but stagnation in the same patterns occurs when we refuse to learn from our experiences.
So, to summarize, an exact time of your encounter with your soul-mate cannot be determined because time is relative, and as we can learn from your reading, time is actually relative to having the best conditions met for you to get what you want!
Always, the most important lesson is the one that makes us develop spiritually, makes us become a better version of ourselves. Everything is for our own evolution. Nothing is good or bad by itself, but by only how we look at it. The responsibility is ours. We create our life each and every second.
