This Holiday Season, Give Your Friends the Gift of Love!

Gift-giving

Buy them a Live.Love.Tarot Session

I know lots of you have that friend and/or family member who, while being a really lovely person, just can’t seem to attract that special someone.   You know they’re smart, attractive and caring, but as far as their dating options, you don’t count.  So your person is out there, in the cold, dreary dating world with not a “real” prospect in sight.

But, are they really trying, or are they sabotaging themselves?  What’s really in the way? That’s a really great question.  And something that a Tarot Reading from Live.Love.Tarot can help discover. 

What’s awesome about gifting your friends a Tarot Reading is that the session doesn’t have to just focus on love.  Your gift can help them find answers about career, money and all sorts of other issues that stump them.

In my world, Birthdays are such a big deal. Maybe its because I’m both a Leo astrologically and a “3” in numerology which means I’m a double dose (times a thousand) of good times, friends and fun.  So I celebrate ALL MONTH.  Yes, all month.

 But I’ve come across some people who don’t look forward to birthdays (huh?).  Even if its an age thing (yes, getting older can feel daunting) birthdays are a great way to mark new beginnings.  If life has been challenging lately, how about stopping pre birthday, to look at the lessons learned and think about you would like to see for your next year?  What about using your birthday so declare big positive changes and then actually take the action to do them for the next year?  You can do fun things like make each Birthday Year a theme.  The Year of Living Lusciously.  The Year of World Travel.  The Year of Me!

Whatever it is, make it special.  Make it AWESOME.

If you or someone special to you has a birthday coming up a Tarot reading is the perfect gift to give.  Through your special Birthday Tarot Reading you’ll get clarity on what’s been holding you back from having that fabulous life you know you’re meant to be living.  You’ll get insight on lessons of your past year.  You’ll also get to see what kinds of exciting and possibly scary stuff  is in store for you for in this new Birthday cycle.   You will receive a  detailed Tarot Reading Report based on what we have uncovered to use as a guideline and incentive for an incredible new year.

THE STAR
You’ve probably noticed that my readings about love situations have big challenges.  While I am a lover of love and believe that there are many amazing relationships out there, most people come to me for readings when things are not going as well as they would like, not when they are 100% happy with their relationships.

Lately I have seen The Star Reversed come up in love readings.  When this card shows up to describe a love situation it may signify that a relationship is going through a rough patch.  There seems to be underlying tension which has been eating away at the relationship.   One or both of you have resentments that have not been fully resolved.   Maybe you discussed things on a superficial level or there was even a big fight over the problem, but you never really resolved the issue.

An example of this is my client who came to me because he thought that things with his girlfriend were not going very well.  He said that he didn’t really know why but their relationship was tense and things were really weird between them sometimes.   As we looked at this situation through some readings, we discovered there had been a situation a few weeks back in which my client had been upset that his girlfriend was flirting with her co worker at a party  in ways he thought were inappropriate (too much touching and laughing). When he confronted her later, because they both had been drinking, there was a big fight.   When they talked about it the next day,  she said she “wouldn’t do that in front of him” again and made the discussion end there.  Hmmmmm.   They both kind of let it go at that point and went on with their lives.  While at first they were loveydovey little things started setting them off.  That is because below the surface each of them had issues that they never talked about, which were really at the core of the flirting fiasco.   As a writer/director my client has not been working steadily in the last few months.  Because of this, his self esteem has taken a hit and he has been having some fears that his girlfriend would find someone else (like the dreaded co worker) and leave him.   What we saw in the cards for her, was that she may be holding on to some resentments about money and having to pay for most of their expenses because his lack of work.

Through a relationship reading we saw that there was still a lot of love there so this was still a salvageable situation.  I suggested that he bring up the tension he had been feeling and take responsibility for his part in it.  While it was up to her to bring up her own issues at least he would be able to tell her what he would do to make things better between them.

When The Star reversed comes up for you in a reading, be sure to get to the root of the issues by being honest with yourself about what you’ve been doing to create pain or cause tension.  Only when we are honest with ourselves and take responsibility for our actions can we move forward in finding solutions towards a more loving relationship.  The Star card is also about hope and healing, so know that there is still a chance to make things beautiful again.

Whether you are single and looking for love or already in a relationship and in need of some reassurance, certain Tarot spreads can assist you in getting the clarity that you need to have success in love.

Here are some ways I use the Tarot cards during a Love Destiny session to help you find the relationship that is perfect for you.

1. What Do You Really Want in a Relationship?

Most of us have preconceived ideas of what an ideal relationship should be like. But most often, those are generic notions of what should be “perfect” for us. There are so many qualities, beliefs and lifestyle choices that we have made that don’t always mix well with the people we think we want. What’s important is that we understand our specific criteria of what we believe the relationship should look and feel like and what qualities in a partner are the best fit. Using the Tarot cards, you can hone in on what it is you are really looking for in a relationship. 

• What do I need from a relationship?

• What makes an ideal partner for me?

• What does an ideal relationship look and feel like?

2. Uncover your Love Blocks.

I have so many clients who come to me saying “Where is he/she?! I’ve been doing everything I can to find love and yet…nothing!”  “Hmmmm” is what I say out loud but as I am often dubious of that kind of statement I’m really thinking,  “Have you let go of your ex (spiritually, emotionally, and/or physically?). Do you still hold on to negative beliefs about relationships because your parents are divorced/had a rough relationship? Have you had negative experiences with intimacy? Could you be sending out mixed messages to possible suitors? And most importantly, do you secretly doubt love will happen for you?”

To find out if there are any blocks like the ones I mentioned above, we do a reading or two to find out what’s in your way. What’s great about this is once you know what the issues are, we can come up with some solutions to break past these blocks and help you to get ready to attract that love you want.

3. Find Out Who Would Make a Perfect Partner.

If you are already in relationship, we can see if that person is a good match. We look at the energy between you to see what works and what doesn’t. If there are some challenges, there may be ways to work on them. Or we can look into finding out who would be a better match. Your love match may still be out there looking for you too.

The Tarot cards each have their own personalities and characteristics, making them ideal for understanding who would be a perfect match for you.

4. Get Clear on How You are Presenting Yourself.

If I were to ask you (and I will), what your most attractive qualities are, what would you say? How would you best describe who you are and what you have to offer in a relationship? What do you have to say about your work, your lifestyle, your values, your beliefs, your likes and dislikes? What is your ‘personal brand’?  Our session can help you get clear on how you are presenting yourself and if its a match for who you really are. This reading will not only help you to become more authentic but also show you how to shine in your best light.

5. Learn When You Will Find Love.

Timing is everything.  Our Tarot session can help you see if you are ready and when you may find a relationship. With this reading if a specific card is upright, the coast is clear and the conditions are right to find love. If the card is reversed, you may first need to overcome obstacles or you may be delayed in reaching the timeframe specified.

6. Receive a Love Action Report.

Through our session we carefully review all of the above issues and more – if you also have some specific questions, great! We can use those too. I work to help you find solutions for the blocks and make sure that any chaotic or stagnant things start moving gracefully.  After our session I provide the notes from the readings and then send you a Love Action Report. The Love Action Report will aid you in removing blocks and taking the necessary action towards becoming your best self to fall in love with YOU. Which will ultimately help you attract and maintain the most amazing love life.

When reading about a person, The Devil card can symbolize a man or woman of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, and in may cases, highly addictive energy. We don’t judge and say its a “bad person” but certainly a powerful person who is hard to resist.  With my clients, maybe this card represents a person who spends lots of money on beautiful things and fun experiences, is amazing and highly addictive in bed and/or gives them an excess of adoration and attention.  Yes, I know, who doesn’t want some of that, at least once in a while?  Well, because often there is a big price to pay.  So, I know when this card shows up, this means that they may need to be careful or they will end up needing this powerful person to give them false confidence and identity.   But if The Devil comes up in the card placement signifying their own energy,  I know that they may be engaging in their own highly manipulative, obsessive behaviors.  There could be an interdependent relationship in which the addict and pusher have created a relationship that is not healthy for either.

With two of my clients The Devil has shown up to represent people from their recent past relationships.   And here is where things get tricky…

Client Stories:

“T” is a business/manifesting coaching client who can’t focus on her projects because she is currently obsessed with an ex and his perceived happiness with a new woman.   She wavers between talking about how terrible he is and also how much she misses the way he spoiled her. Although she knows its “wrong” she is very jealous of the new woman who in her mind is getting all kinds of “good stuff” like exotic trips and shopping sprees.   She knows that she was authentic to herself for breaking up with him because his hyper controlling and critical behavior towards her diminished her self esteem and caused her to constantly doubt herself.   Yet, she wavers between whether she made a mistake in leaving and wanting him to be unhappy in his new relationship, which she is convinced is a disaster in the making.  So during the Tarot Reading segment of our session she wants to ask questions like “is he happier with her than me?” “Is he more f*cked up about our break up than I am?”

“J” is a Tarot client who is obsessed with his ex, a beautiful older woman who in his mind can attract and be with any one she wants.   He believed her to be the “perfect woman.”  So when she told him that he wasn’t up to par in the financial aspect of his life and therefore would seek a more wealthy partner (while continuing to date him!)  his self esteem took a huge hit.   Mind you, this is a good looking, ambitious and artistically talented guy.   There are many women that are interested in him.  But his heart and mind always went back to her.  He was finally able to walk away but her recent attempts at spending time together has him confused.   He tells me he doesn’t want her back, but he is obsessed with making her want him and to admit that he was the best thing that ever happened to her.   So a question he often wants to ask?  “How can I make her become obsessed with me?”  This my friends, is a game that you can not win.

Lessons:

For both of these clients, I recommended focusing on their own life goals not on another person.  Yes, it may seem cliche but its so true.  When we put our energy on another person and try to control an outcome, especially one that has a negative intention, we are only hurting ourselves.  Whenever we think we want to manipulate another person’s happiness then we bring up the darkness and sadness in our own lives.  This multiplies when it causes us to take time away from focusing on and moving towards the amazing things that are in our future.

This quote from Buddha is succinct in this lesson:

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

I met with a lovely couple last night.  They wanted to do The Lovers (couple) Reading because they felt they needed some insight on what was going on with their relationship.  While there were some challenges around a few issues (one likes to go out more than the other, they have different tastes in movies, one is too messy, etc)  their biggest thing was that they both have said they want to get married but each felt that maybe the other was not quite ready for that huge step.  What I love about using Tarot for these kinds of things is that it helps to create a more open dialogue.  What I mean by this is if the cards suggest that one person in the relationship may be too controlling or needy its easier for the person to “hear” than if the partner actually said it.  Mostly because what that means is that the “needy” person may have already secretly felt that he/she were acting as such.   Also, the insights are coming from the cards and me and not the partner who could potentially be in big trouble for saying such things! So basically the cards may allow the couple to listen from a more detached perspective.

I don’t want to give away too much of what was said, but through the reading they were able to bring out their deepest concerns (Do you really love me or just want to be married – to anyone? Are you really ready to be married or are you just afraid to lose me?).   These are really valid concerns that many people bring up in relationship readings and  the cards were able to allow them to bring up these issues and then talk about them openly and get really great dialogue going.

So, what was the outcome? To be married or not to be married?  Well, I am expecting to get an invite to a really special event sometime in the next year….

During our 3rd week of Love Club (my Ready for Love Manifesting Group) one of the group members had an exciting announcement. “I have a boyfriend now!” she told the rest of the group who was surprised but very happy for her. How did that happen so fast? We were only in Week 3 after all. The truth is I had been working with her in a one on one coaching program (focusing on career issues) for several weeks. During one of our sessions, while making her Life Vision Board, I noticed that she had everything she was dreaming of represented on her board…except any pictures that had to do with Love! Why? I asked. She didn’t even notice, or so she said. When we delved a little deeper it became clear that her negative feelings about past relationships, her own guilt about certain things she did, and her desire to keep her independence was making her subconsciously and consciously push away real relationships. She was in fact currently dating a few guys. One of them sounded pretty promising. A nice, handsome guy who was really sweet to her. Yet she didn’t seem to have much excitement for him. She focused more on another one, who, after hearing about his attitudes and actions, didn’t sound to be very “boyfriendy.”

When I see “blocks” within my clients I suggest, before moving forward, to release those things that keep them from getting what they really want. So I gave her some homework which consisted of doing a little personal inventory and then gave her a releasing ritual. Over the next couple of sessions she said she felt lighter and was getting more clarity about her love life.

By the time Love Club started, just a few weeks later, her energy felt open & positive and she was ready to address her issues. Let me say this is KEY to finding love. You may say that you want love in your life, but if you are still closed and you allow excuses, fear and negative energy to get in your way, you will find it very challenging. During group we did more “work” getting to the bottom of their issues, releasing negative energy, and finding clarity to move towards the love they want.

So it was actually very natural that she started to see that the emotionally healthy guy (who I saw as a great fit for her) was the one she really wanted. And when they were on their 5th date and he asked what she thought about being his girlfriend, she happily said “Yes!” Now they are in a committed relationship and are deliciously healthy and adorable. Drama free, which to emotionally unhealthy people may seem “boring” but to those in a better emotional space, know there is more time and room for amazing positive experiences together. I’m still working with her on career issues as well and let me say, her life is truly magical like a ROCK STAR 😉
