The Lovers Tarot Card Description

The angel Raphael appears in the sky, suspended in clouds under a blazing sun. His arms are outstretched in blessing over a naked man and woman. The man stands in front of the Tree of Life, while the woman stands before the Tree of Knowledge, which has a serpent coiled around its trunk. The fruits on the Tree of Knowledge represent sexuality. Our desire to eat the fruit symbolizes our desire to know sexuality which, in turn, leads to knowledge of suffering. The serpent warns of the dangers that come with this knowledge.

What The Lovers Means In A Tarot Reading

In readings about love and relationships, this card is always a welcome sight. It signifies a desire for union and partnership. In a new relationship, you’ll be feeling the excitement and pleasure of sexual desire. In an established relationship, passion and desire may be intensified or reignited. This relationship will have a significant impact on your life. There is a possibility of long-term commitment or marriage, particularly if the II of Cups also appears in the spread.

The Lovers is also a card about choices; choices between vice and virtue, between taking the high or low road. You need to be clear about what your values are. You may face temptation and will need to choose between what you know to be right and wrong. As you continue life’s journey, you’ll be faced with many such choices. Always stay true to your values and standards and choose the path that feels and good and true to you.

The Lovers Love and Relationships Tarot Meaning

The Lovers is a great card to see in a relationship reading. It indicates a time of passion and union. If you’ve only recently begun a relationship, passion and temptation will come easily. In a more established relationship, you’ll feel a renewed bond and sense of union with your partner. You may feel a renewal or intensification of passion between you. Whatever stage you are at in a relationship, it will be one that will have a significant impact on your life. Be careful that you don’t let temptation lead you astray, however. Remember to hold onto your values in any choices you make.

The Lovers Career Tarot Meaning

If your reading relates to work and career, the Lovers will represent a partnership, or working closely with someone. You’ll feel that you’re working with someone who brings out the best in you and you’ll feel passionate about whatever project you’re working on together. Again, however, you need to remember your values and what feels right to you when there are choices to be made.
