Love Tarot: Is it time to leave a relationship?
Love tarot readings can help you learn when it’s time to leave a relationship.

When it comes to matters of the heart, nothing can be more powerful than a love tarot reading. Consulting the Tarot during troubled times can certainly help you gain clarity about what’s going on in your relationship.

Coming to terms with the possibility that your relationship may be coming to an end with someone can be a painful process. The Tarot can be a powerful tool to help you understand why your relationship may not be working and identifying important issues that may be effecting your relationship. In some cases, it can help you identify when it’s time to let a relationship go.

Throughout the tarot deck there are numerous cards that can refer to breakups or the need to walk away from a relationship. However, you should never take these cards literally or purely at their face value. To be properly understood, these cards need to be interpreted within their place of context. This means that you also need to take into consideration where these cards come up in a tarot spread and what cards surround them.

Of all the cards in Tarot, there are only two that literally refer to moving on or walking away. These are the Eight of Cups and the Ace of Swords reversed.

The Eight of Cups

In love tarot readings, the Eight of Cups is the card of letting go and moving on. Usually when this card comes up in a tarot spread, there is a strong possibility that you or your partner have made the conscious decision to begin the separation process either emotionally or literally. The Eight of Cups tarot card often calls for the element of surrender and can be a card of grief and sadness. This is particularly true when one attempts to keep a relationship going after it has run its course.

The Eight of Cups urges you to experience your feelings of letting go and acknowledge that the past is over. This is the time to look to the future and embrace all that you have learned from your past relationships.

The Ace of Swords Reversed

In a reversed position, the Ace of Swords tarot card has many meanings, but when it comes to love tarot, the Ace of Swords can certainly refer to the need to walk away from a relationship. Typically when this card comes up in a tarot reading it indicates that a relationship is causing more harm than good. Because it is a sword, it may be an indicator that you need to “cut” someone out of your life that is causing you harm.

When the Ace of Swords comes up in a reversed position, it’s time to ask your self some very important questions. Is this relationship destructive? Do you like who you are when you are with your partner? Are your needs getting met? How is your partner treating you and how are you treating them?

It’s also important to note that the Ace of Swords reversed can refer to past relationships that have yet failed to have been fully processed or completely let go of. If this is the case then it may be time to emotionally let go of these burdens particularly if they left you feeling hurt or caused you harm. These feelings may be prohibiting you from moving forward or fully embracing your current relationship.

Breaking up is never easy to do. It’s always a process that requires a great deal of willingness to let go and to trust that love is in the future. Love tarot readings can provide you insight, support and hope.  Most importantly, they can be a great tool to help you learn more about yourself and discover what you really want in a relationship.
