The Best Tarot and Oracle Cards for Love and Relationship Readings
Tips and tricks for FINALLY finding the right romance deck!
Before I start dishing on my favorite decks for love and romance readings, I want to point out that I am NOT a “divination purist” in any way…
I’m not one to rely sheerly on traditional options like the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot or Lenormand cards — not that there’s anything wrong with that!
I just prefer to let my intuition run the show, not a particular school of thought.
I’m also NOT an affiliate marketer, so all of the following recommendations are based on my true, unbiased opinions, and not how much money I make in referrals — again, not that there’s anything wrong with that!
Now that all of that’s out of the way, let’s get on to why I’m writing this post…
My LONG Love and Relationship Deck Search
When I first started working as a professional love psychic (or intuitive relationship guide, as I like to think of myself), I struggled to find the right tool for the MANY love reading requests that came pouring in each day.
Sure, I could have relied on my good ol’ RWS deck, and simply read through a “love lens” to get to the juicy stuff for my clients. But why?
I’ve always been a big believer in using the right tool for the job, whether it’s for home repair or divination, so I hit the Interwebs for specialty options.
And after a LOT of clicking, cursing, and coffee breaks, I emerged victoriously on the other end of my mission 😎
Here’s what I ultimately learned after weeks of trial and error:
- There’s no ONE deck that does ALL of the things
- The key is gearing your deck choices to your client’s needs
- It’s okay to make your decks (and your process) your own
- I REALLY FREAKING WISHED someone had done all the hard work for me
What I’m trying to say is that YOU’RE why I’m writing this post. I want to save you the time of scouring every corner of Google and Etsy, the frustration of feeling like you’re this-effing-close to the “perfect deck,” and the heartbreak of discovering it’s not, after all.
Soooo, let’s dig into my favorite Tarot, Lenormand, and oracle decks for love and relationship readings, and just what I love about each and every one.
The Best Tarot Decks for Love Readings
Sometimes, nothing else will do but a Tarot deck, ya know?
Both of these decks can be used by themselves or combined with your favorite RWS deck for amazingly accurate, in-depth, love-focused readings.
This was one of my first finds, and it was SUPER helpful when I was just getting started on the psychic hotlines, and trying to give the best readings that I could, as quickly as I could 🙏
The keywords on the cards are geared toward romance and relationships, which makes them simple to interpret, even when you’re in a rush.
I highly recommend these cards for:
- Those who love Tarot decks
- Beginning card readers
- Card readers working the psychic hotlines
You can find this awesome deck over at the MidnightOracleShop on Etsy.
Unless you’re brand-spanking-new to the “woo-woo world,” chances are pretty good that you’ve heard of John Holland’s books and decks
He’s a psychic medium who has masterfully combined the best parts of a Tarot deck and an oracle deck into one wonderful divination system.
This relationship-focused deck helped me (and many other folks) to tap into the power of pure intuition with deceptively simple images and keywords.
While there is a guidebook that comes with the deck, I tend to use these cards much more intuitively — I just shuffle, pull, and let my inner wisdom lead me.
I trust these cards so much that I don’t even use a spread with them 🔮
These Tarot-with-a-twist cards are great for:
- Card readers with a bit more experience
- Building and boosting your intuition
- Increasing your confidence level
This respected and adored deck can be found over in the Hay House store.
The Best Lenormand Decks for Love Readings
It took me a while to find this simple and accurate (sometimes shockingly so) divination system. But now that I know about it, I’m damn-near obsessed!
Lenormand cards are great for quick and dirty readings. They tell it like it is, and they’re excellent for the more down-to-earth aspects of love…
Want to know if you should move in with someone? Or if you should take a vacation together? Or adopt that cute puppy you saw at the animal shelter?
A deck of Lenormand cards is probably your best source for the real dirt.
While there are a ton of awesome Lenormand decks out there for more “general” readings, I’ve only found a couple of love-focused options that ALWAYS wow me and my clients…
I love this little deck! Not only is it super simple to use, but it’s also accurate, and the cards fit perfectly in my (almost embarrassingly small) hands. Bonus!
Based on the traditional Lenormand system, these cards are love-focused, but they also contain keywords for general Lenormand meanings, which is VERY helpful if you’re new to this divination system.
And as yet another bonus, the creator of this deck is a well-known expert in the intuitive arts community. Christina Quick has shared tons of amazing info to help aspiring professional psychics via her YouTube channel and Facebook groups.
These cards are a great option for:
- Lovers of Lenormand decks
- Those longing to learn traditional Lenormand
- People with small (or possibly painful) hands
You find this lovely deck for lovers (along with other amazing Lenormand cards designed by Christina) at the Profitable Psychic store.
This is my other go-to Leonarmand deck. It couldn’t be easier to use, I love the illustrations, and I always get accurate readings with these cards!
Even though this deck is based on the Lenormand system, I tend to use it more like an oracle system, thanks to the extra cards and the clear, simple-to-read keywords.
While the traditional Lenormand deck contains 36 cards, this one has 55 cards (including a Yes, No, and Maybe), which allows for an in-depth reading, without being overwhelmed by a ton of card choices.
This deck is an awesome choice for:
- Those that enjoy using keywords for quick readings
- Readers who like Lenormand cards, but not so much the system itself
- Anyone who enjoys a smaller deck with personality and a pretty design
You can find this kickass little deck in the MahrukhX store on Etsy.
The Best Oracle Decks for Love Readings
Do you like to keep things flexible? Are you a “fly by the seat of your pants” kind of person? Do you bristle at the thought of rules and systems?
If you felt a “Hell, yes!” inside in response to those questions, you’re most likely a lover of oracle cards, or you might want to give them a shot (in my humble opinion, of course).
Oracle decks can be made up of any number of cards, any type of theme or design, and they usually come with easy-to-understand keywords or even longer descriptions of a situation.
You can use oracle cards as a standalone divination tool, or add them to the mix as a supplement to Tarot or Lenormand decks, which I’m a BIG fan of doing in my love readings.
Oracle decks help to give me more insight into specific questions that my clients have about their relationships. And the following are my favorite options for oracle cards to use in romance-focused readings.
I use this deck in almost every love reading that I do! It’s a wonderful way to address multiple requests at one time. These cards answer questions like:
❓“Is my partner coming back?”
❓“What are they thinking about me?”
❓“When will I hear from my love interest?”
This incredible 78-card deck is great for:
- New relationship potential readings
- Break-up and reconciliation readings
- Info on true feelings and insights on timing
Grab this super-simple and fun-to-use deck in the MahrukhX store on Etsy.
Looking for more info on what your client’s love interest is thinking about them and the relationship? This deck is a great way to add more depth to your readings.
With only 40 cards in this deck, I’ve never used it as a standalone option, but it’s given me some great supporting info that’s really resonated with clients!
These cards are a good choice for:
- Revealing a love interest’s thoughts and feelings
- Adding depth to any relationship reading
- Quick and easy info about your clients’ love life
You can get this cute and clear deck over at the MidnightOracleShop on Etsy.
PRO TIP: Thanks to these cards being offered by the same shop (and using the same size and material), you can mix and match them with the Lasting Love Tarot cards, and create one amazing mega-deck 💖
This deck of 110 cards is one of my favorite options for getting the real tea in my love and relationship readings. Nothing hides from these cards!
These are my go-to to answer “How do they really feel about me?”
If you want to be able to give no-holds-barred info that’s as legit as it gets, I can’t recommend this deck enough — just make sure it’s that kind of reading…
Not everyone will want to hear what some of these cards have to say 😳
This tea-spilling oracle deck is a good fit for:
- “Tough love” advice for true dirt seekers
- Readers who want to be able to reveal REAL feelings
- Adding a dose of accurate authenticity to readings
This deck is another favorite of mine from the MahrukhX store on Etsy.
This mega-deck contains 122 cards that are focused on connecting with your higher guidance and finding divine love. It’s a great choice for long, in-depth readings or videos— this gorgeous deck looks amazing on camera!
I tend to keep these cards for use in my own personal love life, or with clients who want to focus on a more spiritual, sacred dynamic in their love lives…
There are so many cards, and this deck has so much wisdom to offer, I truly feel that it’s a waste to use them on any reading that lasts less than 30 minutes, or with clients who want quick and dirty relationship guidance.
This deck is a great choice for readers who:
- Want a TON of card options in love readings
- Specialize in twin flame or soul mate readings
- Enjoy readings filled with deep, spiritual meaning
You can find this lovely deck of love oracle cards over at the iN2IT store.
The Best Tool for Accurate Yes or No Answers
If you’ve ever worked on the psychic hotlines, I’d be willing to bet good money that you’ve been asked for a quick answer to a specific question, especially via text or email messages.
The “yes or no” request is pretty common, both on its own and as a part of a more in-depth love reading. In fact, it’s so common, I worked hard to find the best divination tool for quick clarity for my clients.
I’ve tried decks for answering yes or no questions, but none of the options ever felt quite right to me, so I turned to another handy little tool that NEVER leads me astray…personally or professionally.
Rose Quartz Pendulum
I freaking ❤️ pendulums. They’re super simple to use, and in my experience, amazingly accurate and helpful. They also come in a wide variety of colors, shapes, sizes, and materials. What’s not to love, am I right?
I have almost as many pendulums as I do card decks, but much like my decks, I tend to use only a few of them on a regular basis (#sorrynotsorry). I also like to use specific pendulums for specific tasks or reading types.
My go-to pendulum for giving intuitive relationship guidance is one made from rose quartz. It’s small and light, and it has NEVER led me (or my clients) down the wrong path. I’m gonna say it again — I freaking ❤️ pendulums!
Adding a pendulum to your psychic practice might be for you if:
- You want to give your clients quick and clear answers
- You want to expand beyond using card decks in readings
- You want to deepen your intuition and spiritual connection
While you can find pendulums on Amazon or other mega-retailers, I sincerely hope you’ll consider supporting your local crystal or metaphysical shop by purchasing one in your community (#shopsmall 💞).
PRO TIP: You can “interview” a pendulum to find the right one for you by asking if it would like to work with you. I’ve found that some pendulums simply don’t work for me, no matter how pretty or light it is.
This practice has helped me to save a TON of money and frustration! I just hold the pendulum in one hand and ask, “Would you like to work with me?” I watch for a response from the pendulum (“Yes” is always forward and backward for me) and then I go home happy with my new addition.
Wow! This post ended up being much longer than I planned, but if it’s helped even one person deepen to their divination practice, it was worth it 😄
I truly hope you found something useful here. But if you have more questions or want further guidance, please feel free to shoot me a message at email@example.com any time. I’d love to hear from you!
