Tarot Sex: Is it Real?
Tarot Sex is something I’m often asked about as a professional tarot reader. I’m asked whether there are cards that symbolise or indicate certain things like death or sickness. There are, but they are rarely a single card—indications tend to appear as groups of cards. When I’m with a client, I can’t think of an instance when I would out and out tell the client what I see if it is something like death, a significant illness or an accident. After all, what if I was wrong……..
Sex and passion are different things.
Someone came to see me some time ago, and she asked me about tarot sex. She was interested in a confident guy who had re-entered her life. For the next 30 minutes, we had a lot of fun. I explained as accurately as I could what I was seeing/feeling, and she nodded in total agreement, constantly blushing but enjoying every minute because, it seemed, I was the only person who really “got” what she was getting. Pardon the pun……
So where does this leave us with the tarot card pack? Are there cards that appear that always have a sexual connotation to them? Yes, there are, but only some people will get the message. After all, a reading is not all about sex, especially tarot sex.
This is frequently a ‘touchy’ subject. During psychic readings, people often want to ask about a sexy new partner because what happens behind closed doors is essential to a relationship. Would you like to discuss this further? Please book a psychic reading here, and when you do, please mention ‘tarot sex’ in the booking comments. Of course, we maintain a high level of confidentiality at all times.
For our first example of tarot sex, I may draw a card like The Lovers. If you look at the picture, it’s a pretty sexy-looking card. But what does it mean? It could mean a fantastic new guy will want to lift you half-naked. All the while having passionate sex in the sea with dolphins jumping around in harmony with his pelvic thrusts. Unfortunately, for the clients who have been to see me, I have never described a scenario like this; I’m not saying it won’t happen; it just hasn’t happened yet.
To set the record straight, The Lovers, to me, is more about support and connections—close connection, bonding and togetherness, rather like a marriage. In any good relationship, when there is close bonding and harmony, there is likely to be a close connection in the bedroom, too, like the couple who dance slowly and sensually together. Their lovemaking will generally be intimate, passionate and sensual, just like The Lovers.
What about a tarot sex card like Temperance? Innocent looking, sure. The figure in the card is undoubtedly beautiful, and there seems to be a certain magic about her. I love this card appearing in readings because it has so many meanings. One that jumps out is someone who loves sex but not necessarily heterosexual sex. It often signifies sex, and it could mean gay, heterosexual or even someone who is bi-sexual. The transfer of fluids is strongly represented either by the sexual act or just kissing.
For me, Temperance can be a higher-level card, meaning that the subjects may be on a higher sexual journey, and the need for the transfer of fluids may end. If you were to draw this card, think about taking your love-making and sex to the next level; frequently, people on this level explore the magic of tantric sex.
Now let’s move on to one of the hottest cards in the pack—The Ace of Wands. And no, if you draw this card, girls, you’re not necessarily about to go out and buy a new vibrator. The Ace of Wands is about sexual passion, which fires a couple up and is undoubtedly about biological sex. This card is about penetration. Warning though, if you draw this card, it could be you’re about to enter a hot, passionate time with a partner or new lover. The other side is that it could be only about sex; remember, relationships are much more than sex.
Of course, it could be a lot of fun, but long term? Probably not; it’s just too difficult to build a long-term relationship on sex alone. Interestingly, no matter what tarot pack you use, this card represents a potent phallic symbol. Some packs represent this card from a feminine angle and show the central wand with a vagina-like opening at the end, a combination of the masculine/feminine in one card.
Have you ever watched any movies where the devil is a central character? A large proportion has sex as a main theme—here in tarot sex, the Devil is a significant character. So it’s little wonder that if you draw The Devil in a psychic reading, there may be sexual overtones. I’m ordinarily circumspect about heading in that direction because I don’t want my clients to think I’m some sexual deviate. Nevertheless, the whole meaning occasionally emerges; when it does, it is very devilish. I’ve had prudish clients wanting me to expand on the story with all the sexy overtones. And yes, even I’ve been known to blush!
The Sex Card of the Tarot Pack
Seriously though, The Devil is the sex card in the tarot pack. It represents all the good and bad things about sex, from heated passion, bondage and ménage à trios to sexual violence, obsession and even sexual addiction. And, once again, it doesn’t matter who made the tarot card. The picture and message are almost always the same. I talked to someone a few months ago, and The Devil appeared. She was very open and insisted that I tell her what it represented. And you know, she was not surprised at all, because years before she had been a prostitute, she had learnt a lot and still used the things she had learnt on and with her current partner. This woman wasn’t at all fazed by how candid I was, she liked her sex hot, and she wasn’t afraid to talk (to me) about it.
The Devil can be at any level on the scale of hot sexuality. It just depends on how open the recipient is and if sexuality is what needs to be discussed or outlined in the tarot reading.
The cards I’ve discussed above are the ‘biggies’ of tarot sex. Although many others carry sexual connotations occasionally, here are some that you might keep an eye open for.
Here is the flirt and playboy/playgirl who enters, has a good time and leaves. Typically very passionate and lustful, but tie them down emotionally, and they’re gone. This is a pity because they are full of sexual energy. They love having sex, but once the interest is gone or a partner tries to ‘get’ them emotionally, they’re out of there.
You know how some members of the opposite sex ooze sex appeal, don’t they? They look so sexy, but they’re not necessarily beautiful. This is The Star. They have inbuilt sexual energy, but interestingly, they’re unaware of it in themselves. In the emotional/spiritual sense, the person’s outward sexuality is their shadow place; it’s something they do not see in themselves. So what we have here is a purely connected type of person with transformative energy and who’s highly spiritual.
Watch this person, “give me sex now, and I’m out of here” would be the motto. This person would think nothing of having sex with four people in a single day. Yet, they are never far away from someone of the opposite sex. Fun? Yes! Are they committed or faithful? No!
If you want to think about fertility, consider The Empress. This person is never a bad boy or a bad girl. Just the person who may land you in trouble (i.e. pregnant), so watch it. If The Empress appears in a reading, could you quiz your reader? It could mean, if you’re a woman, that you’re about to become fertile, which means there’s a soul up there in heaven who has an eye on you as a parent.
There are your eight cards. But, of course, there are many more.
