The Suit of Hearts deals with the emotional level of consciousness and is associated with love, feelings, relationships and connections. Hearts are about displays of emotion, expression of feelings and the role of emotions in relation to others. The Hearts Cartomancy cards indicate that you are thinking with your heart rather than your head, and thus reflect your spontaneous responses and your habitual reactions to situations. Hearts are also linked to creativity, romanticism, fantasy and imagination. The negative aspects of the Suit of Hearts (i.e. when the Hearts cards appear reversed) include being overly emotional or completely disengaged and dispassionate, having unrealistic expectations and fantasizing about what could be. There may be repressed emotions, an inability to truly express oneself and a lack of creativity. The Suit of Hearts traditionally represents the west and autumn. If using an ordinary deck of playing cards, Hearts are represented by the Suit of Hearts.
Timing: When looking for time sensitive answers, Hearts generally means moderately slow, usually weeks to months.
When things are stable in your life, expect to see some cards with the number four on them in your Cartomancy reading. This is the number of stability and consistency. There are four suits in the Cartomancy deck and four seasons on earth. This natural order of things is often disrupted for short bursts, but it is more likely to trend toward constancy than maintain any of the disruptive energy. Revolutions do not occur under the four, but they may be inspired by the long uninterrupted stasis that underscores it. The timeframe starts as a comforting security and consistency, but it can manifest as boredom, stagnation and resistance to change out of a fear of the unknown. For every side of the four that is peaceful and grounded, there is a shadow side of avoidance and outgrown attachments.
