Love and the 4 of Wands

4 of Wands - Rider Waite Smith Tarot

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day!!

To prepare for this fine Holiday of Love, I’ve pulled a card asking for advice on how to make the day especially happy and romantic. The card I got was the Four of Wands.

The picture on the Rider Waite Smith version of this card pretty well speaks for itself – CELEBRATE!!

The Four of Wands is all about celebration, gathering with others, and enjoying life.

As advice, this card suggests the importance of letting your partner know you’re serious about the relationship, but it’s also asking you to just have fun.

Don’t get all heavy, or overly sentimental, just get out there and enjoy each other.

Have a great day, and let love rule!

What is Love?

8 of Wands from the Smith Rider Waite Tarot

In honour of Valentine’s Day, I asked my cards – What is Love?

The card I got was the 8 of Wands. It’s not an overtly romantic, or even emotional card, so it’s not one that I would have chosen consciously for this question.

But it does have some interesting things to say about the topic.

To start, as a Wand card, its element is fire. Creativity, spirit, and passion rule the suit, and in the eight, the energy is balanced and directed, not flying all over willy-nilly.

And the 8 of Wands is a card of communication. A message sent has been delivered and the answer in return is swift and full of enthusiasm, or at least the news received is likely to spark some excitement.

Thinking then about the question – “What Is Love”, I’d have to say that love is swift, enthusiastic communication, balanced and direct. It’s passion extended and passion received. Love is creative energy on the move.

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!! Love to you All!

Six of Cups from the Rider Waite Smith Tarot

I asked my deck for a card that represents Valentine’s Day, and the card I got was the 6 of Cups.

How perfect!! It might not be all lovey-dovey like the 2 of Cups, or talking about romantic commitment like the Lovers might, but it’s as full of sweetness as either of them.

The 6 of Cups is a card about friendship, gratitude, and the joy of sharing with those who mean the most to you.

It reflects emotional loyalty, as well as a happy sense of nostalgia. As long as you don’t let yourself wallow in the past, this is a truly happy card.

And I think it’s a great one for Valentine’s Day. Not everyone is romantically involved, but everyone feels love – and hopefully wants to share it.

So let the 6 of Cups fill your heart with joy and good-will to all, and though it’s still not till tomorrow, I wish you a very Happy Valentine’s Day!
