Love Potion Number Nine

Today, with the Three of Cups,  we see the more non-traditional side of the Magic Manga Tarot (AGM Müller, 2008).

A very buxom maid, with a heart on her hat and a love potion in her hand, bursts out of her lace-trimmed, elegantly draped dress.  She looks provocatively towards us through long eyelashes, past a beauty spot that highlights her large, wide eyes.  I see nothing here of the traditional meanings of (female) friendship or celebration.  Unless it's some kind of Viagra-induced celebration, with her as the welcoming gift!

In that sense, I guess this card could be a reminder that sometimes we need to carve out space in our busy days for love and passion, and that the truest gift we can give is our own time, energy and devotion.

Today I will make time for love!  Hopefully, both for play and cuddles with Big Boy, and for snuggles with my Dear One . Now that sounds like a good plan for this sunny Sunday ;)

I am grateful for the love around me, and in my heart.


  1. Lol!

    I used this deck many times on the online site that I got hooked on ( I can't remember its name?!) Anyway. I admit this card was hard to get my brain wrapped around. Plus it made me feel oddly inadequate even though I have an ample bosom (believe it or not, I'd rather have a smaller bosom. Large breasts sag more readily)...TMI?

    ANYWAY. I like your take on it!!! Sorry I haven't been commenting much.

    I think I may stop my hiatus early. I always do and I think withdrawing is not always the right answer for me. Maybe I should experiment with different decks or spreads.

    Big Hugs,

    1. Hi MM,

      Yes, it was after seeing it in one of your readings that I went out and bought it ;D I know what you mean about her looks: it's not just the bosom, it's the dress, the big, wide eyes, the pouty lips, the fluffy curls - bah humbug ;)

      Anyway, it's always great to hear from you, and selfishly I hope you will come out of your hiatus early, as I always enjoy reading your posts. Still, you have to find what's right for you.

      Big hugs backatcha,
      Chloë xxx
