Tarot and Sexuality

by Aug 18, 20160 comments

Sexuality is all over the tarot. Lets face it, tarot readings are for adults. The main subjects in a reading revolve around relationships, money, work, and travel. Clients want to know about their love life in particular, and sometimes the questions are direct.

The Tarot for sexuality

The Major Arcana are the best for exploring sexuality, particularly when combined with several courts who may represent the client and the person they are interested in.

As in every tarot reading, context is paramount. For some women, knowing that they are going to meet a ‘gentleman friend’ is as far as the reader needs to go. Others want more details – these are the ones that push for information. I remember a woman in a new relationship asking about her lover. Most prominent was the Devil, so I casually mentioned bondage… her eyes lit up and misted over in reverie of her expectations.

This list is not exhaustive, nor is it guaranteed right in every situation. Some of the practices are illegal depending on where you live. It is not the purpose of the tarot reader to advocate any of these practices either.

The list is created entirely without any reference to the Tree of Life, using my imagination. I have not used all the suggestions in a reading. I have not defined the divinatory meanings in terms of reversals – it is up to you to decide if you need reversals to fine tune your interpretation.

If you have any suggestions or enhancements, please contact me.
