Can Tarot Cards Or Psychics Tell You If Someone's Cheating
Relationships are built on trusting your partner as much as they’re built on trusting yourself. When you have chemistry that feels purely electric, a love that runs deeper than the ocean, and a history filled with ecstatic ups and saddening downs, it can be easy to ignore your inner guide when something feels off. How do you know who to trust when you’re so committed?

Tarot card readers can serve to coax your inner guide out from confusion and illuminate the truths you may have known all along. If you have an indescribable feeling that there’s something different about your relationship with your partner and they may be having an affair, grab your tarot card deck, or visit a psychic who can interpret the meaning and truths behind your intuition. 

Which Tarot Cards Can Tell You About Your Relationship?

Tarot cards began as a card game in the 15th century, and it wasn’t until the 18th century that they were used for divination. Each card in the deck has its own meaning or universal symbols (often referred to as archetypes). Though some believe tarot cards can tell the future, the truth is that they’re more of a way to reflect on your choices and make empowered decisions. When seeking answers about your relationship or path toward finding a loving partner, the following cards from the deck can shed some much needed light on matters of the heart:

The Lovers card - When doing a love-focused reading, this card signifies a beautiful balance between you and your partner. Your relationship is ebbing and flowing nicely.

The Knight of Cups - If you’re single, your knight is coming to sweep you off your feet.

Two of Cups - Pulling this card signifies that there’s a strong connection between you and your partner and you both desire to show the other unconditional love.

Four of Wands - A good indication for the joy you’ll bring into your home (and that those closest to you approve of the match).

The Magician: The Tarot Card That Represents Deception

Pulling any number of these cards is a good sign for your relationship, but what about the ones that point to signs your partner is facing, or has given into, temptations? If you ask the reader why you have a sense that something is off between you and your partner and you pull “The Magician,” your suspicions have merit. 

The Magician represents deception, and signals that someone is wearing the con artist hat. Pulling this card out of the deck can mean your partner is hiding something from you. Take a moment to reflect in this situation: were you ignoring your inner guide and downplaying a potential affair? Have you been able to set boundaries that make it clear you deserve a healthy partnership?

If this card appears in your spread, don’t panic—it doesn’t necessarily mean they’re cheating. The Magician could indicate that they’ve been presented with the opportunity and are considering the option, or are struggling with doubt about the relationship and will find a way to explore other options soon. 

If you’ve visited a psychic or tarot card reader and aren’t sure how you and your partner will get back on track, keep the faith, every relationship goes through its own challenges and trials. 

How Tarot Can Help You Know If Your Partner’s Cheating

In one instance, a woman who visited a psychic for a tarot card reading found the person she loved more than anything was on the verge of making a decision that would change their relationship forever.

For Sarah, it was love at first sight when she saw Ryan at a bar. Before getting married, the couple was together for 7 years and established a meaningful bond built on understanding, and trust. Recently though, something just wasn’t right for Sarah, so she and the psychic focused on a reading about Ryan. When remembering how they met, Sarah pulled the Two of Cups, which signaled that their foundation was solid and their connection deep.

When considering how the relationship evolved over time, Sarah pulled the Queen of Swords—a sign that Sarah had taken more of the caretaker/taskmaster position in the relationship, instead of being his true partner. 

When questioning where Ryan was at that moment, Sarah pulled the Four of Cups. He might not have been cheating, but he certainly had the opportunity. 

And when looking toward the future, she pulled The Tower—a card that confirmed that if she continued on her path as taskmaster, there would be irreversible trouble ahead. 

The final card Sarah pulled was Strength. To reverse the situation and place the responsibility back in Sarah’s hands, she needed to realize that her control over him would eventually make him resent her. She needed to learn how to stay strong, but bend and allow him to be himself. 

When Sarah saw this psychic again, she confided that she and Ryan had gone to counselling, and Ryan had admitted that he had met someone who was more spontaneous. Though he hadn’t cheated, he had considered it. After a lot of internal reflection, Sarah and Ryan had been able to slowly rebuild their connection and trust in one another. 

In the case of Sarah and Ryan, Sarah’s intuition led her to a psychic who read the cards that confirmed what she had suspected in some way. It’s not easy admitting that you feel adrift in your relationship, but there are gentle ways of allowing yourself to acknowledge out loud what you’re feeling inside and then use the deck to guide your next steps. 

Psychics who specialize in relationships and infidelity, can help you discover the reasons behind your unease and give you the strength and guidance to tend to your relationship, however that looks to you.
