You may long for romance today but not allow this yearning to reach further than into your fantasy. What is stopping you from telling the one you desire how you really feel? Are you fearful of rejection? Is the relationship doomed? Are you in love with an idol or are you a star-crossed lover?
These are all possibilities with the combination of the Page of Cups and the 8 of Swords. As always, the remedy is found in the cards themselves.
The Page of Cups corresponds with the Element of Water and the 8 of Swords corresponds with Jupiter in Gemini. You yearn to expand (Jupiter) emotionally (Page of Cups) but you can only do so by giving your desires a voice (Gemini).
Sometimes it is easier to do so if you write it all down. When it is just you and the pixels on the screen, you can be as brave as you want – really pour your heart out. Then you get to decide whether you prefer the fantasy over reality. The Page of Cups loves to wear rose-tinted spectacles when it comes to love and romance. She may not even be aware of the fact that it is the fantasy she prefers.
Test your mettle today by making this choice in awareness: to speak or not to speak. OWN your choice. If you choose the fantasy out of a realisation that it probably IS better than the real deal, be happy with your ability to conjure a full-blown romance in your mind. If you choose the fantasy out of fear of rejection, buckle down to do the work to overcome your fears.
Life really is too short to let fear rule – especially when it comes to matters of the heart.
“The strange thing about falling in love is, we know what it looks and feels like. But we can’t really explain why it occurs and where all the madness it brings with it comes from.
Or why it just seems to happen like magic between two particular people but not others.
The appearance of love seems totally irrational, inexplicable and without reason. Yet, when it happens it feels like the only thing that makes any sense. True love, I guess, is when it keeps on making sense after you actually get to know the other person.”
― Charlie Maclean
And if you are one of those star-crossed lovers, know that love is eternal. If it is indeed true love, it will survive death. You have nothing to fear. You cannot lose a soul mate. You are always together in spirit. Just mind that the present moment is where you have to live and love… and if you can’t be with the one you love, love the one you’re with.
“Most people think that love doesn’t stand the test of time – that it is eternal only as long as it lasts – but love is an unquenchable flame.”
