Also known as „The Twins“, the sixth Major Arcana is always about duality and partnerships. His most important message is that of unity – the Lovers inspire us to bring people and forces together. Reunited, it is easier for us to get help and protection, as Jesus Christ said: „For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them“. (Matthew 18:20)
Description of the Lovers
A man and a woman, both naked, are standing in a green field, with a mountain rising between them. Behind the man there is a tree of flames and behind the woman is a fruit tree with a snake around the stem. In the middle of the card, there is a cloud upon which rests an angel with crimson wings, wearing a purple cloak. Above the angel, there is the sun spreading its rays.
Signification and Meaning of the Lovers
The Lovers – General signification
The Lovers shows you that you are in love with someone or something. But love is complex and has many faces. There are many types of love: romantic love, erotic love, platonic love, family love. You have to understand what the nature of your love is.
Most often, when there is an internal conflict between mind and heart, the Lovers tell you to follow your heart.
The Lovers – Money
You have to find partners or investors for your business. There are some things you must keep in mind, when choosing a business partner: financial stability, common values, vision, skills, experience, resources and credibility.
If you don’t own a business and you are an employee, you have to concentrate on working with others, on developing your group working skills. A positive work environment will allow you to give your best, at work.
The Lovers – Love
All you need is love – this is the essential message, when this card appears in a tarot spread. It’s time to attract more love into your life.
If you are already involved in a relationship, it’s time to make the next step – maybe marriage, maybe consider having kids together. You’re on the right way to develop and maintain a successful intimate relationship.
If you are single, you are about to find true love, to find somebody to share your life with. Be open to new people and do not reject anyone, before giving him (or her) a chance!
The Lovers – Health
You are about to find a good doctor or healer to help you with your health problems.
Another message of The Lovers is that wellbeing and positive thinking are the most powerful weapons against health problems. Do what you love to do, be with the one you love and the good energy will maintain you healthy and happy!
