For today’s reading, I decided to do a collective reading for twin flames! This is for a couple of reasons: the first being that there’s been some weirdness lately (probably due to Mercury retrograde and the eclipses), the second being it’s the 11th today, so it seemed fitting.
Since I don’t currently have a Rider-Waite deck, I used a standard playing cards deck (toy story themed, since toy story 4 is coming out soon!) and translated them into minor arcana cards. I will be drawing 11 cards for this reading and an additional card at the bottom of the pile.
The first card that came out is the 7 of spades (7 of swords in the Rider-Waite deck). The 7 of swords symbolizes deception, sneakiness, or theft; in the traditional tarot, it depicts a man carrying 5 swords and running away from a military camp. Since the swords in tarot deals with the realm of thought, it could be that you or your twin flame, or both (since you mirror each other) are deceiving yourselves in this connection. I’m seeing so many possible interpretations, including: a) something painful happened in this connection, so you or your twin flame could be trying to run away from this connection, to avoid confronting it perhaps, b) you could be dealing with deceitful behaviour from your twin flame, or c) you were deceitful with your twin flame. Again, since the swords deals with the realm of thought, maybe the “deception” was imagined? Take what resonates.
Clarifying the 7 of swords, we have the Queen of Cloves (the Queen of Wands). Seated on a throne with a black cat at her feet, she symbolizes a powerful, confident, independent feminine figure in touch with her shadow side. From this card, I’m sensing that the feminine energy in this connection (feeling like this could be you, the readers) has done a lot of work spiritually (wands deals with the realm of spirit) on her self esteem. She has risen into her divine power and is now capable of blocking/battling that deceptive energy, whether it came from herself or within the connection. Perhaps she has become less tolerant of BS now because she recognizes her value and worth. If you are not the feminine or this does not resonate, this card could be commending you to have courage and face whatever fears you have within this connection, to really go within and connect with spirit.
Next, we have the 9 of hearts (9 of cups), which is essentially the wish fulfilment card. Congratulations! If you have been waiting for union/reunion to manifest, if you’re currently in separation, this card means that you will get your wish granted soon.
Clarifying the 9 of cups, we have the Queen of hearts (Queen of cups), who embodies the divine feminine qualities of compassion, intuition, care. Again, I’m getting the feeling that the feminine in this connection has really been nurturing herself, which has allowed her to rise into this Queen energy. By loving him/herself, he/she is also loving his/her twin, nurturing the connection and allowing this 9 of cups to manifest. You two could be connecting more on a spiritual and emotional level at this time, which is deepening your connection.
Next to the Queen of cups, we have the Jack of spades (Knight of Swords), who embodies ambition, quick thinking, and fast paced action. I’m sensing that this could be the masculine’s energy at this time — he has felt the feminine rise into her Queen energy and is charging towards her with an offer. Or, potentially, that your connection is at a state where it’s progressing very rapidly towards this 9 of cups (wish fulfilment).
Clarifying the knight of swords, we have the 2 of hearts (2 of cups), which symbolizes union and partnership. If one of you has been dishonest or evasive in this connection in the past (7 of swords), I’m sensing a shift where they/you come forward with this knight of swords energy, towards the one embodying the queen of cups/wands energy, with an offer of partnership and commitment (2 of cups). A very auspicious sign if you have been wondering when union will come about. The answer is: in the near future.
Next, we have the 10 of spades (10 of swords), which deals with betrayal, pain, and loss. Because this is next to the 6 of hearts (6 of cups), which deals with the past, I’m feeling that, coupled with the 7 of swords, this is more of a past energy that this connection is emerging out of (Also 10 + 7 = 8 in numerology, which is a twin flame number). The 6 of cups is also often associated with children. This could be suggesting you and your twin flame will become more playful with each other, or in touch with your inner child at this time. This is very beneficial, especially if you have been focusing on healing from wounds/hurt in the past that have been brought up by this twin flame connection.
Next, we have the 8 of cloves (8 of wands). This card is very similar energetically to the knight of swords, representing movement and fast paced change. I’m seeing union/reunion coming soon. Since this is next to the 6 of cups, I’m also seeing that revisiting past memories or getting in touch with your inner child could be very beneficial to speeding up the healing process and manifesting this twin flame union.
Clarifying the 8 of wands, we have the 3 of diamonds (3 of pentacles), which represents teamwork and collaboration. The pentacles have a very grounded energy as they are connected to the realm of the physical, suggesting that your connection is solidifying as you two begin to work together. This card could also symbolize coming together into physical union/reunion.
Next, we have the 10 of hearts (10 of cups), symbolizing union, divine love, and celebration. Need I say more! I think this card speaks for itself.
The final card, at the bottom of the deck, is the 5 of spades (5 of swords), symbolizing conflict and disagreements. I’m sensing that this is a past energy — but perhaps this is also a reminder to regularly nurture your connection and talk through any conflicts or disagreements that come up.
Final notes: lots of cups cards, which deals with the realm of emotion, so this could be a really emotional time for twin flames in general. In addition, this could mean that a lot of you readers are water signs (pisces/cancer/scorpio). I don’t read into the images on these cards as this isn’t the traditional deck — however, if the images resonate in any way, take it as a sign. I did notice that two cards had this binocular toy on it — that stood out to me, cause it could possibly symbolize you two spying on each other on social media if you are in separation, or seeing each other in a different light — I’ll leave this up to you to interpret.
