Hug Spread

365 Tarot Spreads: Revealing the Magic in Each Day - Sasha Graham 2014

Hug Spread

On This Day

Human contact and hugging have proven health benefits. Hugging or ten minutes of handholding with a romantic partner can reduce stress and its negative side effects.

Today is National Hug Day—a chance to show family, friends, or perhaps a special someone how much they mean to you with a warm embrace and a snuggle.

Summation of Spread

Ten of Cups, the “happily ever after” card, depicts physical affection as both couple and children hold each other. Interestingly, the Lovers card relates to sexual intimacy even though no physical contact is displayed.

Hugs for family and friends are welcome and well received, but the Hug Spread takes a peek at who you want to embrace romantically. Do you dare throw your arms around your special someone?
