Love is mysterious, so it can be hard to know exactly what steps to take to bring more of it into your life. But by drawing on the “tools of mystery”: astrology, feng-shui and tarot, you can actually activate the positive flow of universal energy in your life, which will help you to attract the love you are looking for.
Whether you are in the first stages of dating, or hoping you’ll soon get a ring on your finger, there are tips you can use to smooth the road ahead and magnetize the love you are looking for. Read on for ideas that cover the gamut of relationships from beginning to end.
HANGING OUT THE WELCOME SIGN
Try to be out and about seeing and being seen on the full Moon. Dress up and look your best during this outgoing and energetic time. For maximum effect, go out when the Moon is full in the sign of Libra, Leo or Sagittarius.
Decorate a red ribbon with love symbols that are meaningful to you. Tie the ribbon around your outside bedroom doorknob to attract love and sex into your life.
Figure out what kind of person most appeals to you, and spend time in their natural habitat. Use the following tarot suggestions for ideas and inspiration:
practical, grounded, serious
Habitat: work, home improvement stores, lectures/workshops on financial security.
fun, charming, playful
Habitat: sports, bars, parties
smart, intellectual, witty
Habitat: bookstores, school, cafes
kind, compassionate, gentle
Habitat : nature, spiritual (church, workshops), volunteering
SEALING THE DEAL
Time big transitions (moving in together, getting engaged, getting married, getting pregnant) to begin on the new Moon to plant the seeds of new beginnings.
Make sure that you have plenty of positive images of “twos” in your home, to support you in being a couple. Use colors in varying shades of pink, red or purple in your bedroom to encourage love and romance.
Pull cards from the deck such as the Two of Cups (or Chalices) and the Lovers card and put them on an alter in your shared home to remind you of love and connection in your relationship.
MOVING ON TO GREENER PASTURES
End relationships on the dark Moon, using this energy to help you release emotions and patterns that are holding you back from getting the love you want in your life.
Clear clutter from your home before you begin a new stage in your relationships. Releasing the past and making way for new energy.
Work with the imagery of the Death card to help you clarify your core values (the skeleton) around love and relationships, so that you can help to attract these into your life. Write down a list of everything you want to release and let go of that reminds you of past relationships. Have a ritual funeral for these old habits as you let them die out of your life.
