Embracing The Lovers Tarot Card
Whenever this Major Arcana The Lovers Tarot card shows up in a reading spread, there is no question for me there are affairs of the heart that are being dealt with. Whether that be in a relationship, a loving family and deep friendship or dealing with how your loving relationship is with yourself, something is getting ready to challenge or caress your emotional attachments.
The Lovers represent perfection, harmony and mutual attractiveness. It is associated with the astrological sign of Gemini, “The Twins.” It almost always points to partnerships with just one other person. Generally, this indicates a romantic partnership but not always.
The Lovers can also show a very strong sexual connection that goes beyond instant gratification and lust to suggest a very deep desire and passion that exists between two people. The physical attraction is strong and so is the desire to be intimate with one another. When dealing with star crossed lovers in an unfulfilled relationship, if pulled inverted, it can also mean a strong love connection from a past life yet to be fulfilled.
If representing one’s personal belief system, it is about becoming clearer with your own values. This is a time when you are figuring out what you stand for and what your philosophy on life is.
On the personal level, usually the Hierophant also appears in the foundation, having already learned some lessons and healings and you are now ready to establish your own belief system and make up your own mind about what is and what is not important in life. This is also a time when you need to stay true to yourself and be as authentic and genuine as possible.
Career, Romance, Money, Health, Spirituality
Where Career is concerned, you may be facing a decision in relation to work. Taking all your options into account and learning to make your best choice from a place of harmony and love. It can also sometimes mean that what you initially interpreted as a bad thing will turn out to work in your favor. It is also a caution about mixing business with romance; if you chose to go there, make sure you know exactly what the stakes are.
In Romance, the Lovers Tarot card typically means love is showing up to be in the center stage of your life. This is either a new relationship or a powerful re-bonding of an old one. Either way, it portends a happy outcome with a serious deep emotional and committed relationship that is working in your favor. If pulled inverted, depending on the supporting cards, it may show there are issues in a relationship that have come up and possibly a little trouble in paradise going on.
Having the Lovers card show up in your Money sector can mean a heads up on paying attention to your finances even if you are feeling blissfully romantic. When in a new relationship, it is sometimes easy to lose track of where you are with your financial life. Be sure to not lose sight of being responsible with your daily financial obligations and/or a cautionary tale of not spending too much on items such as clothing, etc. to make yourself more appealing.
When seeing the Lovers Tarot card when addressing Health, it may indicate you are facing health challenges and the right partner will be there to help you get back to wholeness. Whether that relationship is with a traditional doctor, nurse or healer depends on your preferences and choices. Mostly in regards to health, the Lovers Tarot card shows that you will not be facing your illness alone.
If the Lovers card shows up in a Spirituality spread, it shows is a special person, like a mentor or leader that you have faith in and helping you along your spiritual journey. It may also point to a mentor getting ready to come into your life. Remember the old saying: “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” If pulled inverted, it cautions to not blindly follow; question everything, listen to your heart and take what is offered that is helpful and works for you and disregard the rest.
Susan Z’s Verdict
Depending on what is in the forefront of your life at the moment, the Lovers card showing up is always an indication that the heart will be pushed, challenged, stroked or embraced with another. Love is usually the pathway to growth, whether it be the absence of it or expanding the heart to know and feel more of it. Always, the end results of having the Lovers card show up is a new awareness and definition of what love is, whether in a relationship or just life in general.
