Lovers Tarot Card Spread
There are different words when it comes to describing love and the Greeks had eight different ways that they described love. Here are the types of loves according to the Greeks:
This kind of love is self-love. This is the love that you have for yourself and the worth that you feel when you think of what you want and need. You need this love so that you can share your love with other people.
Philia is an affectionate kind of love. This love is love between family members and friends that you have met along your journey. This kind of love is mutual and brings respect and values. This is more of a mental connection.
Pragma is a kind of love that grows as you get to know each other, and you share a commitment with someone. This is an effort that you have to put into the relationship in order to reach this point of love. This connection is a subconscious connection.
Storage love is a kind of love that you will have with people that you know and that you have known for a long time. This could be a family member or someone that you grew up with. This kind of love is based on memories that you share.
This love is romantic love, and it is a lust that you share with someone. This is a physical connection.
Ludus is when you flirt and when you are in the process of forming a romance with someone. This love is normally a newer love but can also be found in people that have been together a long time. This is considered an emotional bond.
Mania is obsessed with love that makes someone feel that they own someone or that makes them feel jealous. This comes when you rely on someone, and the connection is a survival connection.
This is the kind of love that is selfless and unconditional. You can only give this love if you don’t expect anything back in return. This is when you love someone and have compassion for them even if you have gone through painful things with them. This is a spiritual kind of love.
