Is Love in My Future?
Who hasn’t asked that question, some of us many times over? Loving and being loved seems to be top of the list when it comes to what we need. Conditions, coincidences, and our state of mind and heart all need to be “right” to bring about a true love opportunity. This makes us sometimes feel that it’s a “long shot” and maybe we should “just get a cat”. Yet, most of us do have a soul mate.
I don’t really think we only have one, but I don’t think we have tons of them, either. At certain points in our lives, one type of partner fills the bill better than another, and at some point we will meet the one who will go the distance, if we really want them to.
Many times, they will be someone we have been with in a previous lifetime, and occasionally, the past of this lifetime. But, before we can find that future love we’re slated for, we have to ask ourselves this all-important question: Am I willing and open to finding true love?
Why Would Anyone Hesitate?
Lots of reasons.
Love requires a number of things from us that maybe we don’t really want to commit to.
For example: putting someone else’s needs in front of our own when it is truly necessary. Taking the risk of someone seeing us at our worst (because they will) sometimes. Or, accommodating another being’s energy in our sacred space, and frequently sharing money, time, messes, head colds, and of course, pleasures unlimited!
Is it that Old Flame or Someone New?
The quick answer: Usually someone new but remember, they may not feel “new” to you because you might have karmic ties that span centuries.
Occasionally, it will be the “high school sweetheart” or some equivalent. But most of the time when there is a reunion in-person, they are different, we are different, and that becomes quickly obvious.
When break-ups that last for more than a few days occur, they’ve happened for a good reason. That’s why our future love is seldom that old flame. Enjoy them in memory, because that is where they truly live, and remember that with the Universe in all its glorious, strange complexity, there’s sometimes an exception to this rule.
Is it Love You’re Looking for or the Perfect Dream Relationship?
Love means accepting and celebrating a real person, imperfections and all. There are no perfect people, nor are we perfect.
So, although it’s fine to have an ideal blueprint in mind of the kind of partner we’d like, let the Universe surprise you with a different personality, race, appearance, or income level than you believe is your “type”. You just might have stumbled onto a soul mate!
Your ultimate destiny is the spiritual evolution that understanding someone different from us forces us to encompass. But, in case that feels like “settling”, let’s ask ourselves: Settling for what? Maybe the best times we’ve ever had showed up in unexpected ways!
This happens a lot and the angels laugh!

The Future Love Tarot Spread
Cindy wondered when she would really meet “the one”. She hadn’t really dated anyone for a couple of years when we spoke and she hoped that that didn’t mean she had somehow failed to read the signs correctly.
She wondered about a couple of people from her past. She sensed true love was somewhere in her future, but wondered if she was doing anything to push it away.
We tried the spread that follows and here’s what it told us:
