Today I decided to pick a card from the Osho Zen Tarot deck and the card I picked is The Lovers.  As I tune into this card….the message I’m getting for someone reading this is….the quest for love is often based on the wrong reasons – neediness, sex, image, societal expectation, amongst many other things….are based within the mind instead of the heart.

What’s most important in a loving relationship is compassion, non-judgement, support, the ability to really see each other at a deeper level, to really care for somebody, appreciate somebody, respect somebody.

Love is often right in front of us in one form or another…..if you are in a relationship…..take a moment today to really appreciate the goodness in your partner….appreciate them for all the right reasons of the heart and how they complete your life.  Instead of judging or criticizing…..appreciate what you’ve got and nurture it.  Make an effort today to focus on that person (and vice versa)….water the garden that is your relationship so it will continue to thrive.

If you are not in a relationship…..reassess your checklist for what you are looking for and what you really need.  Sometimes a person is sending out the wrong energy because they think they want certain qualities in a person and for a relationship to present itself a certain way….and they are blocking what they really need from entering into their life.

Be a little more open-minded regarding your expectations…..don’t say “I want this….I want that in a person”….wanting something often never leading to actually having.  Say you would “…be open to….”  or “…I hope for….” “….it would be great to receive….”.  Wanting limits what you will receive in your life.  Try freeing yourself today of your expectations regarding love and see what happens.

One last message is to spend some time today appreciating something you absolutely love….whether its a person, a certain kind of food, some music or other form of art, a hobby.  Tap into your heart today and it will benefit you greatly.  We often forget to do so because we get so caught up in responsibilities… this is a nudge to take some time to do what you love today.

I will be back tomorrow with another card reading of the day…..enjoy your Saturday!!!!
