The Lovers card is a beautiful and evocative card to receive within a reading. A card of duality, choice and relationships, to offer just a few simple, but core interpretations.
Love is the glue that binds the universe together, the most elusive, yet alluring and tender energy we know.
The love that we have for a partner, our parents, children, family and friends, not forgetting our pets, so the animals we deeply cherish and adore. Yet there is another kind of love, the love for food, music, art, nature, items of importance and sentimentality.
But there is another form of love, in many ways, the most difficult, but crucial kind of love, the love for oneself.
One of the most challenging messages of this important card is to approach the self without judgment, to offer a kind word without criticism, to fill one’s heart with pride and affirming encouragement, while rejecting any hint of self-loathing or hatred.
This is the key when trying to understand the root meaning and energy of this warm and embracing card, a card that perfectly personifies and embodies the celestial and ethereal energy that we simply, and in many regards inadequately describe as, love.
