What would Love say today?

In keeping with the theme of today being February 14th and all, I decided to use this beautiful deck.  This deck is called The Enchanted Tarot by Amy Zerner & Monte Farber.  I remember using this deck quite a lot 24 years ago asking those burning love questions.    So as I remember my youth and time of innocence I share with you this 1 card draw.

What would Love say today?  Success  

This is a joyous celebration of Love.  Young and Old gather around to celebrate what is inside our hearts.  It reminds me of a time of Old Fashioned Love, where love actually had a permeable substance, was deep and pulsating.  This card today is to remind us that we are in charge of the seeds that we sow for our tomorrows.  Love like you have never loved before, let go, trust and let yourself be vulnerable.  Let someone else hold your heart.  Don’t be afraid to love and be loved.


Why is it in today’s society  we expect hardship, divorce, arguments when it comes to love.  This is the norm for a lot of people.  Its a matter of if it will happen its when will it happen.  Just waiting for the other shoe to fall off.  The expectation is that love does not last and it’s suppose to be hard.

Long gone are the days of old fashioned love people shared.  When it would almost be unheard of a kids parents being divorced.  Where couples celebrated their milestone anniversaries of 25 -50 years wed.  When one would have respect and care about the way they spoke to their spouses.  The days when couples planned to make big purchases in their lives, and really struggled to pay off their homes, or go on that dream vacation.   When couples trusted each other and had transparency in their relationship.    When there would be a home cooked meal waiting on the table.  A shoveled driveway, the light left on outside for you.  The times when couples would sit in the same room and enjoy each others company and talk and watch a bit of television.  Where going out for dinner was always a special occasion or a celebration.  When the simplest of gestures or presents would be appreciated like it was the finest Cartier diamond.   When a relationship or marriage was cherished and sacred.  When they were grateful for having each other in their lives, when disagreement were just that disagreements, and where there was always love and forgiveness.

Now in today’s fast paced world of constantly being available, thanks to electronic handcuffs we all have.  In this day of instant gratification where very little takes effort to acquire ones hearts desire thanks to credit cards and ridiculously low borrowing rates.  Where husbands or wives become interchangeable as the latest version of the iPhone.  When we measure the worth of our relationship against the latest installment of the bachelor/bachelorette.   Where you can look across the dinner table or in family rooms oops my mistake “the Great Rooms” across the country and see husbands, wives and kids with there heads bent focused on their friends latest tweet, or Facebook update.  Where conversation and making plans has become scare as the good old land line. Where respect is given because of what and I going to get in return.  Where everything has to be 50/50 and no one is willing to go the little bit of extra.  And commitment is celebrated by reaching that 10 year eternity band milestone, of look at us…we made it!

This being said,  I know this is a general statement and some couples manage to stay together and celebrate those amazing milestones of 25 years and up.  I also know that sometimes its impossible to stay together for reasons being of the of the most serious of nature.  With that said  I think all of us could use a little bit of old fashioned loving.


Happy Valentines Day!
