MAJOR ARCANA NUMBER 6
ASTROLOGICAL SIGN or PLANET: GEMINI, MERCURY, VENUS
The Lovers card indicates both the most powerful of unions and the most challenging of conflicts that humans must face. On one hand, the card embodies love and union on a cosmic scale — a love so strong, so inherently good that it actually makes the lovers better, more than they really are. All of the elements are there for the perfect union. The Lovers represent all-powerful unions and the elements that create and sustain them. Because of the strong bonds, all trials and tribulations will be overcome.When this card appears, it may also indicate that you may be facing two different paths to take in your relationship. It is important to choose your path carefully, and most of all, follow your intuition and heart.
In the reversed position, the Lovers card can signify distrust or manipulation in a relationship, being in an unfulfilled relationship or having unrealistic expectations. There is a possibility you have made poor choices. Do not make hasty decisions in a relationship. There can also be jealousy, lack of morals, standards and values, unreliability and irrationality. This card may also indicate frustration in a current relationship, which is caused by indecision. It is also an indication of friction in the relationship and some counseling may be a good option. Stagnation in seeking help may resolve itself in a separation or divorce. Be wary of possible toxic emotional relationships.
