Looking for love in all the wrong places? Tarot can help you make better choices and gain more clarity in love once you know the difference between the “green light” and “red light” love cards. The next time you do a reading about love and relationships, look for the following cards to figure out where you stand.
GREEN LIGHT LOVE CARDS
These cards are the “Go, go, go”, “Yes!”, “Big Thumbs Up” cards. They indicate that you are moving in the right direction towards the relationship of your dreams. When you luck out and draw a Green Light Love card, the universe is telling you to keep on doing what you’re doing, because one way or another it’s going to lead you closer to luck in love. These cards are the most favorable when they appear in a reading in the future position or as the outcome card.

RED LIGHT LOVE CARDS
Wondering if your new fling is going somewhere … anywhere? Suspicious that your lover may not be quite what they seem? When the Red Light Love cards show up in a reading, it’s time to slow down, reassess and prepare for change. These cards can alert you to trouble ahead, helping you to make any necessary adjustments, or initiate challenging conversations that may help smooth out future misunderstandings.
Often times the Red Light cards highlight areas that simply need work in your approach to love. Once you take mastery of the situation and confidently face your fears, matters will often resolve more quickly and with less pain and discomfort all around. Use these cards as opportunities to revise your current approach to relationships, allowing them to give you insight on what you most need to learn.
