Tarot reading: finding romantic love

Recently I received a tarot reading request on the topic of finding romantic love. The question I received from C. is exactly like this: Which are the blockages that don’t let me live a true, romantic love? Thank you for your question C.! Now, before we start the reading, I would like to remind you that my tarot readings are for clarifying situation in the present moment and not for giving advice. You can read more about my approach on tarot here. Now, before I begin, I would like to note that your question is well put, except it draws attention on one aspect that depends pretty much on you: how do you define true romantic love.

I originally wrote this blog post for my friends from TidakPedas, and since I am back to Europe for a little while now and intensively thinking back of my time as a Darmasiswa student in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, I re-post it, because every word I wrote is true!!! 🙂 hehe… from my experience of course! … unless you’ve traveled to Indonesia recently, and know what to expect, this country for sure is going to take you out of your comfort zone! And that is a good thing! Pay attention to the details and observe yourself: does it surprise you? Does it shock you? Does it annoy you? How do you usually do those things? How would you do them differently?… These are good questions to ask yourself in the beginning and you’ll be surprised to notice that while comparing Indonesia to your own culture, you face your own concealed judgments and … Continue reading
