Looking for new love? In search of the next big relationship? Or just need some guidance in matters of the heart?

Well, the Tarot is here to guide, and it’s most certainly here to illuminate whatever truths and insights you may feel are hiding away from you. Yes, it can even help you identify true love, and yes, it can show you what you need to do to get there.

It all starts with the right questions and intentions and a Tarot spread that will help you find the right answers. Let’s get started on your journey to finding new love with a simple 5-card spread!

A 5-Card Tarot Spread to Locate New Love

Before jumping into your love reading, remember to keep an open mind and heart to what you might receive and hear.

When it comes to matters of the heart, we can find it a bit harder to be objective — remember: the Tarot does want to help you find love, even if it might require delivering tough love your way first!

With that in mind, we can jump into the 5-card Tarot spread to help you seek out and identify new love!

  1. What is the energy of my love life now?
  2. What energy is needed to attract new love into my life?
  3. What can I do to align myself with this energy?
  4. What is a sign to look for that I’m on the right track?
  5. In my love life, where am I headed presently?

Still a little lost? Let’s see what this spread might look like in action.

Example Tarot Spread

1. What is the energy of my love life now?— 8 of Pentacles

With the dedicated energy of the 8 of Pentacles, your cards may be validating all the hard work you’ve been doing up to this point.

Maybe your past relationships were complicated, and you had to work hard to move on, or maybe you’ve just been diligently practicing the self-love you need to step into a new relationship healthily.

While this isn’t the most romantic energy, it certainly indicates that you’ve been checking off all the boxes on your to-do list.

2. What energy is needed to attract new love into my life? — 7 Of Wands (Reversed)

The hardworking energy of the 8 of Pentacles is great, and all, but the 7 of Wands reversed implores you not to work so hard now.

Upright, the 7 of Wands is often an uphill battle. It shows us that a trying time is ahead and that only our best efforts will lead us to success. In the reversed position, we might take this to mean that, on the flip side, we don’t want to be exerting too much energy to attract new love.

What is meant for you will come easily and shouldn’t require all the sacrifice you might be used to giving in love.

3. What can I do to align myself with this energy? — The Sun

Be joyful, positive, and optimistic!

The Sun is bright and lovely, and it has the kind of innocence and optimism we usually see in a child. It’s that pure! As you don’t want to be working too hard or sacrificing too much at this time, the best thing you can do is align yourself with the energy of free-spiritedness and happiness.

After all, like attracts like. If you want happy-go-lucky love and warmth, a good place to start is by giving off that vibe in the first place.

4. What is a sign to look for that I’m on the right track? — 3 of Cups

You should be surrounded by friends, positivity, and goodwill.

The 3 of Cups isn’t just a card of love and romance alone, but happy times across the board in all social circles. When you radiate love and warmth, you’ll be attracting it as well, and perhaps meeting all kinds of new people in the process.

You won’t always be meeting “the one” in these situations, but it’s a good sign that you’re on track to meeting someone in the right frame of mind and vibe.

5. In my love life, where am I headed presently? — 4 of Swords

At this time, you might be headed towards a period of reflection and rest.

If you aren’t able to align yourself with the bright and optimistic energy of The Sun, the Universe may just force you into it by putting your world on pause.

The 4 of Swords is often a break in our lives where we are forced to self-reflect and rejuvenate our energies, so this might be what is needed to put you on track with The Sun’s energy.

Keep in Mind…

Even though the Tarot can help us identify and understand the next steps we need to take to find what we want — including new love — it’s still up to us to take those steps.

In other words, the Tarot can help you find love, but it’s up to you to seize it.

And we might not always have an easy road ahead in our Tarot spread! Sometimes finding new love requires a lot of self-reflection, hard work, and honesty.

If you feel stuck or discouraged, you can always ask your Tarot cards for additional help, guidance, or for a few affirming words to help you feel ready to take those steps.
