YIPPEE finally the card we have all been waiting for… Oh but wait… is it really?
“If someone comes along and shoots an arrow into your heart, it’s fruitless to stand there and yell at the person. It would be much better to turn your attention to the fact that there’s an arrow in your heart…”
― Pema Chodron
The Lovers is one of those tarot cards that really requires the reader to call upon spirit guidance to determine its precise meaning, as this card can be heeding a warning or a blessing alike.
As the Gemini may or may not have evolved, so too the situation may be loaded with lessons or fruits of potential nurturing and holistic love.
The angels and guides are providing an opportunity for true love, mutual attraction and union when the Lover card appears.
However, if the querent (or the person the card is referring to) is still in the early stages of a Gemini’s growth (where two sides are polarised) the relationship may be just that- an opportunity.
It could have the potential of lasting and sincere true love. This card shows that someone with all the gifts of passion and sensuality and attractiveness on all levels will enter your life or has entered your life. You will be swooning and whirling and twirling with a promise of love in your step.
The attraction will be strong and powerful and will often be a soul connection. You can be assured that a great pull will occur within you and it will be mutual.
This card is quite sexual and can be a warning that sex (although important) is not the base of true love. It may be suggesting that you not confuse lust with love. In some cases a lover comes into our life for healing for past relationships from this life and others. It can be asking you to go into the relationship with openness and no expectations; to enjoy the bonding but to steer clear of expectations, to allow it to be what it is.
The Lovers card can be about choice though also – As the fool on his or her journey suddenly stumbles across love – deep palpable love – but it may not be the direction the fool was consciously traveling on – they may have had other plans.
Love being the essence of life may challenge us at times if we are not ready for it.
This card may be showing us a test of faith. Calling us to accept that love is our path, that we do not choose when and where we meet our love. That this true love may have challenges attached to it. That when the lust moves past it initial stages the test of love will be sort. Compromises, not sacrifices, will need to be made in the name of love.
Truth will be exposed and we have a choice of the heart or the head. Free will may be a vital key in the outcome of the lovers path – as always. Be cautious of the shadow self – be open to change and growth as this card offers a rare opportunity and if you resist or control the passion or do not honour the love in some way the love may be lost. Remember free will, this is what we are accountable for on our life quest. Love needs to be nurtured.
The dichotomy of the laws of nature may provide our souls with great lessons. How we choose to move through this cycle, this lesson, this destiny is always our choice.
If your query is about work or goals or projects it may be indicating that this person will come through the work place. Or it could be advising that you will love what you do and it will provide you great fulfillment.
Spiritually this card may be about being ready for a union that helps you to explore tantric love and brings you immense growth; reaching truer heights of self love that can then be experienced with another.
It could simply be saying that you are ready to meet with true love as you have advanced through the stages of awakening that warrant a sharing that is greater than one with self alone.
Consciousness is integral here. A union that helps you to learn and grow through the love of another. A union that reaches beyond the old patterns and asks you to move from intuition and deeper caring for self and others. Perhaps even a union that brings forward your life purpose.
The lovers card is the raw essence of love. We must learn to love ourselves before we can truly give openly and wholly to another. Yet, we also learn about ourselves through relationships with others and/or we can learn love within the relationships. Again the choice is ours.
When this card comes to you in a tarot reading it may just be this time (time for you to experience meaningful love) are you up for the challenge?. Open your heart. allow to receive and make the choice to go wholeheartedly into the equation of union and you will experience delights of the soul, exquisite personal growth and a whole new level of being.
The lovers is your choice not just your destiny 🙂
