Messages of Love
Messages of Love
We encourage each other!
One of the many legends about Saint Valentine is that he, while imprisoned, wrote letters of encouragement to his followers on the heart-shaped leaves available to him through his cell window.
Whether or not this story is factual, I love the imagery of it; the idea that an imprisoned person’s faith and inspiration could be so strong as to share encouragement with those outside his prison walls.
This leads to the idea that, no matter our own limitations or difficulties, we still have the capacity to provide inspiration, encouragement and solace to others. And, perhaps in that act, can find the same for ourselves.
How we communicate with people matters. Our tone, our words and our energy make a difference to the people around us. Even when dealing with strangers, we can choose to share a positive, encouraging energy.
Sometimes we hear positive messages, not only from the people we love, but from strangers, song lyrics, dreams, and our own intuition. I believe that our loved ones in Spirit send us messages of love constantly; we just need to know how to hear them.
The more we are aware of how we communicate with people, the more we are able to receive positive messages from the Universe. In meditation, divination and simply by listening, we become able to sense, and to share, the messages of love that are all around us.

The Pages are Messengers
There are many tarot cards whose keywords include ‘communication,’ but probably few as directly as the four Pages.
While the Pages can be children, or students, these cards also serve to bear messages and to encourage us to communicate.
Long before electronic communication, the Pages would predict the much-anticipated event of receiving a letter in the mail. Now, they handily answer questions like, ‘Will I hear from him?’ and ‘Should I say something to her about this?’
Pages can also take on the role of letting you know that your loved ones in spirit have a message for you.
The next time you see a Page in a reading, consider that the card could be encouraging you to communicate with someone, or letting you know that someone is trying to communicate with you!
The Week in Review
Just released this week was a podcast from the Tarot Readers Academy featuring me! The topic is ‘The Cards Speak for Themselves’. You can listen to the podcast, watch the video and download free study materials!
This week on my personal blog I shared some thoughts about Rumi, my new favorite song and a tarot exercise.
From Around the Web
Check out this month’s Hit List from The Tarot Lady. I was pleased to get a mention!
I stumbled on this older post from James Ricklef about Tarot and Desiderata. This post has certainly stood the test of time and offers a great tarot exercise.
Mary Greer has a new post called ‘Active Imagination vs. Guided Imagery.’
Cards for Your Consideration
What better deck to consider for Valentine’s Day than Lover’s Path Tarot by Kris Waldherr? This U.S. Games favorite comes in a lovely set with a full-length book.
Waldherr assigns classic love stories to each of the Major Arcana, giving us a lesson in tarot archetypes, literature and history.
The Minor Arcana are fully illustrated and also depict love stories. This is a full-service traditional deck that can be used for any kind of reading. Yet. given its theme, it’s the perfect deck for readings about romance.
