The Lovers

The Lovers represent relationships and choices. Its appearance in a spread indicates some decision about an existing relationship, a temptation of the heart, or a choice of potential partners. Often an aspect of the querent’s life will have to be sacrificed; a bachelor(ette)’s lifestyle may be sacrificed and a relationship gained (or vice versa), or one potential partner may be chosen while another is turned down. Whatever the choice, it should not be made lightly, as the ramifications will be lasting.

The Lovers can also mean that you should be honest and make a clear decision about your current love and stand by it. The Lovers say that a peaceful combination of existing contrasts or contradictions may be a better solution than any confrontation; diplomacy instead of war.
