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 takesa great deal of effort and patience to build a bridge of communication between two
people. In order for our intimate relationships to ourish, we need acceptance, compas-
sion and the ability to listen.Relationships require accountability to yourself, your partner and the relationship as awhole. Unfortunately maintaining this level of intimacy on a full time basis can prove tobe almost impossible without guidance.In tarot reading, the majority of issues that come up for couples can be broken down intoa 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 behaviorpatterns, 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 moreeffective 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 ourefforts towards intimacy. The Tarot encourages a partnership to explore the roles eachindividual has adopted in the relationship. It is the ultimate tool for freeing oneself of
the ego and nding common ground with one’s partner. When utilized properly, manyTarot card meanings can encourage a couple to explore their boundaries and nd a new,
mutual, freedom.There are certain Tarot spreads that can be done with your partner. One of the mosteffective is the Tarot Partner Spread. This spread is an excellent tool for increasing thedialogue 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.
