Page of Wands
Hey there! How’re you doin’? You are young or young at heart. Let this be your guiding light in your relationship: you are never too old to have fun, so consider doing something crazy, rekindle the exciting times. Think about a vacation to somewhere you have never been. A road trip would be fantastic. My advice: plan your romantic adventure today.
Knight of Wands
You worry too much. Live in the moment just like me. Enjoy the passion now and let tomorrow look after itself. We can go dancing, or anything you want. Let’s walk on the beach. Have a little smooch. Seriously? You want long-term? You’ve got your work cut out for you if you think I am the One. My advice: take each day as it comes.
Queen of Wands
You’re asking me? Oh my dear, I am not terribly good at relationships, you know? Why I’ve been married… oh, lots of times. I’m settled now, of course, and my mantra is, ‘Be yourself and keep your friends.” I don’t think I could manage without my best girlfriends, the other Queenies, to confide in. My advice: Don’t commit too soon.
King of Wands
You want love advice? You’ve come to the right place. I say, if you are young and free, stay that way for a while. When you find the one who makes your heart sing, then no other should matter. Give him (or her) your promise, pledge your undying love and stay with them forever. My advice: if you’re in doubt, they are not the One.
Page of Swords
Well, I think you have to have mutual interests. I like someone who can keep up with me, intellectually. I’m a bit young for marriage, to be honest, but I do like witty people who make me laugh. My advice: keep romance fresh with secret messages and funny jokes.
Knight of Swords
Can’t stop; too busy. Oh, you need help… okay. I can spare a few minutes. Loyalty’s the thing, isn’t it? You have to be loyal to your partner and vice versa. Anything less is doomed to failure. My advice: ignore their weaknesses and focus on their good points. Must dash…
Queen of Swords
Hello, dear. Love is about total honesty, don’t you think? No point in hiding the truth from the one you love. If they can’t handle knowing all about you, then they aren’t worth having. My advice: always be truthful with one another. And pay no attention to that floozy Wands woman.
King of Swords
Ah, love. I don’t know about love, not terribly romantic myself, but I can tell you that supporting each other through good times and bad is the key to a long and happy marriage. My advice: be there for your partner. S’cuse me, I have a surprise anniversary gift to arrange for m’wife.
Page of Cups
I know all about love. What you mean, I’m too young? Listen, it’s simple; to get someone to love you, you have to love yourself first. Deep, right? It’s true. My advice: fall in love with you. Look at me, I’m gorgeous.
Knight of Cups
I love to love, I really do. There’s no better feeling than falling in love. Shower your significant other with gifts. Listen to them. Share your feelings. Laugh and cry together. Oh, the emotion is so intense! My advice: think flowers, music, and romantic dinners. And don’t forget the ambiance, it’s so important: rose-scented candles, every time.
Queen of Cups
Do you need a shoulder to cry on? I’m here for you, dear one. There, there; being in love can be hard sometimes, I know. It’s so wonderful to love and be loved though – it’s worth all the pain and sacrifice. Don’t be too keen to burden your partner, they have their own problems. My advice: your inner guidance and intuition will tell you what to do and say. Oh look, there’s the Moon.
King of Cups
In love, as in life generally, I’d say that finding the balance is key. Give and take, and all that. Pay attention to your partner’s feelings. Live with compassion and always give them the benefit of the doubt. We’re all human, and we all make mistakes. Advice: if you love each other you’ll always find a way through.
Page of Pentacles (Disks)
My philosophy is simple: learn all you can about each other. Discover what you have in common and be determined to explore life together. If you are looking for love, sign up for a class. My advice: pay attention to the practicalities of your relationship. Share the chores.
Knight of Pentacles
I don’t say much, it’s true. However, I have experienced deep love. Long lasting love. I’m in for the long haul. Everything I do, I do it for love. No, no-one knows this about me. It’s a secret. My advice: take it slowly but when you find your love, make sure they feel the same way.
Queen of Pentacles
Tea, dear? You want to know about love? Well, it’s rather nice. Nothing better than snuggling up together in our cozy home. I do everything for him… mind you, he works so hard for me. It’s a good partnership, I couldn’t ask for more. My advice: create a loving environment, wherever you are. Would you pass the cookies around, please?
King of Pentacles
I’m a practical man, but I know what my woman likes, I pay attention to her. Mind you, have to give her her dues, she’s a hard worker too. Looks after me very well. My advice: treat your partner with consideration and respect – love will be with you always.
