Free Card Reading: Anonymous

Anonymous asks: “Im 26 and never been in a relationship. I find it really hard to connect with people and I have tried online dating from time to time but no duh luck. My question here , after my spill, is: what do i need to do to find love ?

So just to let you know up front, that is not a one-card question. It could be a one-session question if you are willing to sit down with the reader and converse not only about the cards on the table but also the contexts and circumstances in play. But even then, it is not as simple as pray this prayer, drink this draught, and everything will magically line up for you. What you are asking for is Work, the life-changing kind. My answer will be a compass reading that sights the direction of your target, but it will tell you nothing about the territories between here and there.

The Legacy of the Divine Tarot answers: 9 of Swords.
