A naked man and a naked woman reaching out for each other with the words “The Lovers” emblazoned underneath them. Of course this tarot card must be related to love! Well, yes, but not in the way you think. In fact, if you want some insights into passion and romance, then other tarot cards will tell you much more than The Lovers ever could…
Despite the name, The Lovers card can be misinterpreted by those unfamiliar with tarot, and create confusion about relationships. Our immediate instinct is to associate this card with love, but its meaning is nuanced and often elusive. It is really about our psyche and life harmony. It is what is known as a "choice" card. The card often signifies that difficult and painful choices may lie ahead, but it also informs us that the correct decision is within our reach. The crucial question that arises is how to make the correct decision? Of course this can be relevant to love - but not always.
