There are several tarot cards that are associated with love and romance. If you are doing a love reading for yourself, what cards should be looking for? As a whole, I would say the Suit of Cups is the most important one when it comes to romantic relationships and love. But below, I will list my thoughts on the best tarot cards for love. Some of them may surprise you.
Knight of Cups
I think the Knight of Cups is the most romantic tarot card. The Knight of Cups is the Romeo (or Juliet!) of the deck. I think of wine and roses when I see this card. The Knight of Cups is the essence of romance, courtship. It represents first dates and nights spent talking to each other for hours. This is infatuation, having a crush, flirtation, and that sizzle of attraction.
Two of Cups
A lot of people would say The Lovers is the most important love tarot card. But I beg to differ. For me, the Two of Cups is a lot more important. I think of this card as a partnership. To me as a reader, it’s finding a life partner. This person is your other half. This is someone who has your back, who knows you inside and out, and they love you flaws and all.
Six of Cups
This can be a puppy love, innocent crush kind of card. It can also signify a childhood sweetheart. This is also a soulmate or soul tie card. It’s the sense of having a long shared history with someone. The Six of Cups indicates a strong connection with someone. Either this relationship has already lasted years or it will. If this shows up in your reading, it’s a fantastic sign.
Ten of Cups
Behold the Happily Ever After card in the deck. The Ten of Cups has the energy of the happy ending of a romance novel or a romantic movie. The couple is together forever. It’s a wish fulfillment, a commitment, getting everything you’ve ever wanted. Roll credits!
Ace of Cups
This is an overwhelming amount of emotion. This card is often depicted as water sloshing over the side of a cup, or as a fountain. This is falling for someone. Hard. Your emotions are literally uncontrollable. It can also be the start of a new love cycle with someone, a new beginning in love.
Four of Wands
This is stability in a relationship. You feel as if this person is your home. This is a steady, stable relationship. It can represent taking your relationship to the next level. For example, if you are dating, it could mean getting engaged or moving in together.
Three of Pentacles
This might seem like an unusual pick. The Three of Pentacles is both a dating card and a friendship card. Whenever I see pentacles in a tarot reading, I think about the connection being valuable, about putting in time and effort and energy into this connection. And this card represents working with someone on a relationship, building a connection, growing it.
Ten of Pentacles
This is safety and security in a relationship. I think of it as the business of being married. It’s settling down with someone and sharing your home, your resources, like a banking account or a mortgage. Pentacles represent the tangible, physical world and this is building a legacy with someone. This is living together, raising children, taking care of the old folks, and handing down wisdom and wealth to your grandchildren.
This is a marriage card. Let’s make the relationship official. The Hierophant is all about structure in society. It’s religion, politics, education, the family, and…of course, marriage.
This is the divine feminine, the wife and mother. I see this as a card of marriage and motherhood, of being nurturing and open. And abundant. This card balances The Emperor. In a relationship reading, your partner finds you attractive, they can see you becoming your spouse and having children with you.
This card represents the divine masculine. He’s the father and the husband. It’s about bringing order to chaos, being in charge. It’s the perfect energy to balance The Empress. When this appears in your reading, your partner can see themselves being married to you and raising children.
This might be an unusual pick, but I see Temperance as balance. This is someone who is a perfect complement for you. And this is also the card of patience, of being balanced in your approach to another person. Every partnership should have an equal give and take.
This list wouldn’t be complete without The Lovers. I think of this card as twin flames, soul mates, following your heart and not your head. If this card shows up in one of your tarot readings, there are intense emotions present and this is a very important romantic connection for you.
