6 – The Lovers:
Keywords: Adult choices, love and passion, heart over mind, connections between people, yin and yang, duality
The Lovers is the next step in our growth as we make adult choices. Having worked with authority and with groups, we now need to step into being in charge of our own environment. The Lovers is assumed to depict romantic love, and it certainly can do that. More often, however, it shows us where a choice (and sometimes a difficult one) must be made. Often when making difficult decisions we find ourselves torn between where our hearts would lead us and what common sense would choose. It is at this point that we decide whether to throw caution to the winds and dive in or take a more cautious tack. This card also speaks of opposing forces, although not as obvious or as energetic as what we’ll see in the Chariot.
