The Lovers

Additional deck interpretation:

The Lovers point you towards a path of forming intimate unions and developing harmonious relationships as you continue your journey through the seventy-eight passageways of growth. You may learn to choose your partners wisely on this level of your continuous cycle of change.

You might be waiting for guidance to make a heartfelt decision. This decision could lead to either blissful happiness or to the experience of a connection that is not right for you!

The Lovers signifies intimate relationships, the union between two people bonding together as one. Since physical attractions are an inevitable aspect of life, the temptation they present to forget what is truly in your heart poses a formidable struggle, especially when you make the wrong choice.

The Lovers suggests that you will need to make a heartfelt decision. With this decision you will choose a new journey and your heart might be put to the test before you make a final choice.

It's possible you have been hurt in the past and picked the wrong partners and fear you will make the same mistake again. Perhaps you hurt someone because you were not ready to make a commitment. Making the right decision brings you into a beautiful experience, a journey of sharing, commitment, trust, love, engagement and marriage.

The Lovers card is also the Adam and Eve card, and the time when you are ready to enter the Garden of Eden, the blissful commitment. A decision needs to be made before entering the Garden. The right decision = making the right choice for the right reasons (thinking long and hard about your choice). The wrong decision = making a choice for the wrong reasons (allowing instinctual desires to sway your choice).

Numerical Number 6: This number is related to harmony and connecting with the right relationship, or reconciling a situation to restore harmony.

The Element of Air: The Lovers is associated with the zodiac sign of Gemini (masters of communication and evolutionary experiences that complete your life when you find the right mate who completes your evolution). Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury (how the mind works, how you communicate, write, speak, learn and carefully analyze a situation).

Probable Outcome: You have a strong desire to bond with another, but you will not make a hasty decision. You will examine your personal values and beliefs and review all your options carefully. Your careful consideration will most likely result in making the right decision.

Possible Outcome: You may be in a hurry to connect with someone because of an uncanny attraction. Just be careful with this attraction because you might need to get your head out of the clouds and see things clearly to make the right decision.

Then again, you may be intentionally blocking a possible relationship because you fear commitment. If you fear commitment, it's better to be honest with others so you do not get labeled as Don Juan (the user).

Perhaps you have experienced a recent break-up, separation or divorce, or you are looking for a way out of a relationship.

If you have recently experienced any of these situations, you may be channeling the "wrong decision" energies of the Lovers card. You should postpone making any heartfelt choices at this time until you are sure of your motives.

Timing: The Lovers predicts that an important event may occur within the next 30 days.
