VI THE LOVERS
In a fit of passion, two men lock lips on the table in the kitchen. Their love is their own, and they are in harmony with each other in that moment. The world outside is forgotten.They don’t care about the dinner still on the stove, or the drinks on the table. Each is caught up in the heat of the other’s quickened breath and feel of his lover’s muscles beneath his hands. Neither have noticed they’ve spilled the hot sauce. Outwardly, this card’s meaning is pretty straightforward. New relationships fill the world with wonder and beauty. Older ones mature into a powerful support system and deepening commitment. Amazing sex may be in your near future! At work, perhaps you are working in tandem with someone you respect and admire. Love is in the air! But while what type of people one loves is not a conscious choice, we do choose which specific individuals to expend such personal emotional energy on. It is a choice we make, and keep making, every day. In this respect, the Lovers can represent an upcoming important decision in your life. This card may suggest examining your own personal beliefs, how your decisions will affect you down the road, or the direction your life has taken. Perhaps it may be time to examine if you are living as the best version of you.
Reversed: Reversed this card speaks to the loss of harmony. This can be an imbalance or indecision within yourself, or within a relationship. Consider this card in a reading if there is a person in your life with whom you have a less than equal relationship. Just because this card is reversed does not mean said relationship is doomed, but there may be issues that need to be resolved before you both grow as people together.
