More Than Romance
The sixth card of the Major Arcana depicts a man and a woman known as The Lovers. A god-like or spiritual adviser presides over them, acknowledging their union. While one might think that the appearance of this card in a reading suggests the blessing of a relationship (or at the very least, issues related to love and romance) the card is actually so much more, and so much more complicated. There is a duality implied by The Lovers, or in other words, the partners depicted may be you and your mate, or they may symbolize the two sides present in each and every one of us. Oftentimes, it’s both. What do your two sides have to say about you? Find out in a reading with Psychic Justine ext. 5402.
All love, self or partnered, requires acceptance. Its experience resides on the physical plane (sex, companionship and presence in your own body) and the spiritual one (commitment, purpose and intimacy). We seek a multifaceted and deep bond with our partners and naturally, this requires truly knowing ourselves first. With that in mind, consider that the man in the card looks not above, at his “god” but to the woman, who gazes upward at the divine being gazing over them. As such, the man represents the conscious mind.
The woman, conversely, stands for the unconscious, or the bridge between this plane and the next. Through her gaze, he is able to experience heaven, while his presence at her side allows her to experience the earthly pleasures so vital to living. Both are naked and pure–an Adam and Eve of sorts–and thus present as their true selves. There are no masks. There is only truth.

Whether the card references a partnership or not, it requires compromise and honesty. It asks you to make a choice between a selfish (or otherwise unpure) existence and unconditional acceptance. It asks you to integrate all the sides of yourself, for the purposes of improving your relationships with your lover and/or yourself. And above all, it tells you to trust your instincts in matters of the heart. Learn to trust your instincts when it comes to your romantic relationships with tips from Psychic Violet ext. 9662.
