Tarot – The Lovers – Children of the Voice Divine
I awoke in a beautiful garden. A perfect young naked man and woman engrossed by their obvious love for one another. Behind them astrological symbols and representations of the five senses bloomed. Startled, I noticed a serpent slivering towards the loving couple. A mischievous angel appeared and I heard him say “Can you sense the temptation that threatens the equilibrium? Should they yield to this the eternal love that could propel them into the light will disappear. This is the everlasting truth. Do you comprehend?” With that he was gone and I was back in the present.
The Lovers depicts a young gorgeous man and woman intertwined and naked. They appear as Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. The tree of life is evident behind Adam and the tree of knowledge, of good and evil appears behind Eve. The serpent lurked menacingly. The sun burns behind and the winged mischievous angel appears as an apparition.
The Lovers card represents all aspects of relationships and the myriad choices connected with this exciting aspect of life. Its appearance in a spread indicates some decision about an existing connection. A romantic temptation or a choice of potential partners. Maturity means sacrificing the selfishness of adolescence to pursue a mutually beneficial relationship. Difficult choices may be indicated. Whatever the options choose carefully as the outcome will have far reaching, long lasting consequences. The Lovers .
