Clients often come for a tarot reading when their love life isn't in the best of shape. No surprise, of course - we all want help with the most important relationships in our lives, me included. So we look for wise counsel when things go awry.
A persistent theme throughout these love readings is - remember your own agency. You always have a say in how your life unfolds, but it seems we can easily forget this when it comes to love.
You may already know that I advise questions to be asked in an empowering way, such as "What can I do to attract the love I desire?" rather than something like "Will so-and-so come back to me?" but beyond this, stronger and more foundational than this is the inner belief we need to hold of worthiness.
If you feel communication has broken down in your relationship, before attempting to communicate clearly and lovingly (which is very wise!) it's important to feel in your bones, in your soul, that you deserve clear communication.
You can apply this to any love issue, really. Feel how you are worthy of affection, quality time, independence, respect, tenderness, etc. (This can be a great deal of work if you're unwinding untruths you've been told and have been telling yourself about yourself!) Then when you endeavor to fix or attain those things, your inner self will be in alignment with your outer actions, which makes it all go so much better.
