The Lovers

Description
If you are having problems opening up and relating to people, the Lovers is the card you want to meditate on. This card is also excellent for choice-making. The Lovers archetype knows which relationships have served their purpose or have been outgrown. The sign associated with the Lovers is Gemini. The rune is Gifu. The sun is the spiritual sun rising to its zenith. Angels, in general, represent the refinement of earthly desires. This angel, in particular, is Raphael, the angel of Air. One of the associations of Air is communication, needed for a healthy relationship. The purple cloak on the angel represents royalty, a symbol of how important communication is. The five apples on the tree behind the woman represent the five senses, indicating how important sensual romance is to the woman. The serpent is also a symbol of the senses. The flames behind the man represent the flames of passion, indicating the primary concern of the man. There are twelve flames, representing the twelve zodiac signs, the symbol of time and eternity. The man looks to the woman, who looks to the angel, indicating the path of the conscious to the subconscious to the superconscious, or from physical desire to emotional needs to spiritual concerns. The mountain is a phallic symbol, while the water is a feminine symbol, indicating balance between the two. The number 6 represents the balance of opposites.
The lovers represent relationships in our lives, particularly intimate and/or sexual relationships. This card indicates situations in our lives where love is primarily important and may reflect the state of our relationships at the time. The lovers are blessed and protected by the angel in the clouds above them, and the sun shines brightly overhead, bringing warmth and security. The earth at their feet is green and fertile and suggests life and happiness. However, as with all the cards, there are negative aspects to be considered in the symbolism of the lovers. The snake in the fruit laden tree behind the woman suggests the story of Adam and Eve, the fall of humanity from grace, and the temptations of the world.


Meanings
This card usually indicates a choice is to be made is here, a choice between two loves. May also indicate the possible beginning of a romance. Problems can be overcome by harmony, union, and cooperation. Be cautious of failure, conflict, division, immature planning, and frustration. Be sure goals you set are not unrealistic.
The lovers represent perfection, harmony and mutual attractiveness. Their trust in one another gives them strength and confidence to overcome the obstacles in life. A dilemma will be presented demanding an action or decision, and you will want to decipher the best way to proceed or make the right choice. Something is going to change your plans or the course of your experience, something that may look negative on the surface, but will later prove to be a blessing in disguise.

When you see the Lovers card come up in a reading, it is important to think about where in your life you are facing a choice. The choices presented, if you examine the symbolism, are never two equal but different choices, but rather two completely separate options. Like choosing the easy path or the harder but more rewarding one, these two choices present themselves somewhere in your life as options you must weigh carefully before making your decision, for whatever you select, the rest of your life will follow down that path and you will be forever a new person, for better or worse. Many times we are aware of this on the subconscious level and we avoid putting ourselves in the situation where we must pick one course and follow it. We must remember that to choose not to act is also a choice. When the Lovers comes up, you must be completely honest with yourself in the situation, not taking things strictly on face value but deeply examining your motives, your feelings, your options and your decisions.

The fact that it is a Major Arcana card means that the decision is something which is fundamentally affective, in other words, this will not mean that the choice is whether to get vanilla ice cream or apple pie for dessert. Whenever you see a Major Arcana card in a reading, the situation is affected on a much deeper level and there is no room for the rose coloured glasses.

The choice that the lovers presents is almost always one that has moral over or undertones. The seeker's own value system is being challenged, and s/he must make a definite choice based on that system. The choices are never really easy or obvious, either. Unlike the Fools' choice (which can have no wrong answer), the choice of the Lovers can because one of those paths will almost always take the seeker down a possibly pleasant, but downward tending path.

This card symbolizes everything good in personal relationships. In a reading involving love, this is a very good card in any position. In a reading involving relationships other than a love relationship, it still retains its meaning but adjusted. For example, in a reading regarding a relationship with a boss, it might be read as meaning communication with the boss will be especially good and without friction. This, of course, would depend on the surrounding cards.

The lovers represent perfection, harmony and mutual attractiveness. Their trust in one another gives them strength and confidence to overcome the obstacles in life. You will find that some people are not interested in the work you normally do, or what you have to sell, but this will be a blessing in disguise, be cause new avenues will open up offering unexpected gains in a different direction. Your relatives will be experiencing problems concerning their home, real estate or property, or too many family responsibilities are being heaped on you, and the load is creating a rift that needs to be communicated and resolved.

The Lovers is one card that is easy to remember. Love and sex are riveting subjects, and, as you'd expect, this card represents both. The urge for union is powerful, and, in its highest form, takes us beyond ourselves. That is way an angel is blessing the bond between the man and woman on this card. In readings, Card 6 often refers to a relationship that is based on deep love - the strongest force of all. The relationship may not be sexual, although it often is or could be. More generally, the Lovers can represent the attractive force that draws any two entities together in a relationship - whether people, ideas, events, movements or groups.

The Lovers can indicate a moral or ethical crossroads - a decision point where you must choose between the high road or the low road. This card can also represent your personal beliefs because to make such a decision you must know where you stand. Following your own path can mean going against those who are urging you in a direction that is wrong for you.

Reversed
The Lovers reversed indicates that you are refusing to take responsibility for the consequences of your own actions. You made a hasty choice based purely on the desire for instant gratification and you are now trying to lay the blame on others or on fate. The lovers reversed usually indicates a love triangle. In some circumstances, the Lovers reversed can indicate inner conflicts, being at war with yourself rather than external forces. Perhaps you are punishing yourself for something you have done or feel responsible for? This is not helping you or anyone else. You must do what you can to make amends, and if this is not possible, let the past go and resolve to make better choices in the future.
Failure to meet the test. Unreliability. Separation. Frustration in love and marriage. Interference from others. Fickleness. Untrustworthiness. Unwise plans.

This proves that Nia is nothing if not sappily romantic. *hurms* but of course the fun part is listening to Barry Manilow.
