Love Tarot: Using The Tarot As A Tool For Intimacy In The Partner Tarot Spread
Let's face it, communicating with our partner can be quite challenging at times. It takes a great deal of effort and patience to build a bridge of communication between two people. In order for our intimate relationships to flourish, we need acceptance, compassion and the ability to listen. Relationships require accountability to yourself, your partner and the relationship as a whole. Unfortunately maintaining this level of intimacy on a full time basis can prove to be almost impossible without guidance.
In tarot reading, the majority of issues that come up for couples can be broken down into a few skewed beliefs:
- We do not know how to effectively express our emotions.
- We depend on and hold our partners responsible for our happiness.
- We expect our partners to individually meet the variety of emotional needs we have all of the time.
Tarot card readings can be a powerful tool for rebuilding intimacy in a relationship. The Tarot has the unique ability to uncover both conscious and unconscious behavior patterns, deepen the level of our awareness (individually and as a couple), and help to determine the developmental stage of a relationship. When done together with one's partner, the Tarot offers new, informative language to couples, which suggests more effective forms of communication and promotes a deeper understanding of one another. Through the Tarot, a couple can revive their relationship and redirect their path together. It cracks faulty structures and the limited ways of thinking that, so often, plague our efforts towards intimacy. The Tarot encourages a partnership to explore the roles each individual has adopted in the relationship. It is the ultimate tool for freeing oneself of the ego and finding common ground with one's partner. When utilized properly, many Tarot card meanings can encourage a couple to explore their boundaries and find a new, mutual, freedom.
There are certain Tarot spreads that can be done with your partner. One of the most effective is the Tarot Partner Spread. This spread is an excellent tool for increasing the dialogue between you and your partner. I have found that when this is utilized on a regular basis, a couple can re-discover their relationship in an entirely new way.

For this particular spread, each couple takes turns shuffling the cards. Next, you spread the cards out in a semi-circle in front of you. While concentrating on the suggested questions that I have listed below, each partner will take a turn, pulling one card for each question.
- What can I learn from you?
- What do I expect from you?
- How can I be more supportive?
- What do I need to work on to become a better partner?
- What does my partner need from me?
- What is the direction our relationship needs to take?

This list of questions is not set in stone. They may be expanded or changed in any way that you wish. Keep in mind, the Tarot has multi-layered Tarot meanings. The information a couple can receive is truly limitless. This simple exercise can deepen both partner's level of awareness and create a new vocabulary from which to relate to one another. It is a spontaneous and enjoyable way to get to know your partner from a new perspective and hopefully deepen the level of intimacy.
