The Lovers

Meaning

Tied directly to the zodiac sign Gemini, the Lovers card is often about a big decision at hand. When The Lovers appear in a reading about either work or love, the message is, follow your heart, your instinct is not fooling you at this time. This card says, it is safe to proceed with the decision that is pulling at your heartstrings the most. It's important to take all parties into account when you meet The Lovers, as feeding your own Ego will backfire. But, when you do, know that peace and harmony will prevail in your very own Garden of Eden.

Symbolism

Decisions are always paramount when you see The Lovers appear, as this card is directly connected to the zodiac sign Gemini, and the constant decisions they face. This is a beautiful card that represents the harmony and peace found in the Garden of Eden. But we see not one but two lovers in this card, suggesting there is a choice in play that could change your life. Most of the time this card appears in relationship spreads, thus signifying decisions in love are the theme of your reading. Sometimes it could be a major work decision too. You may be asked to relocate from an area that you love deeply, or that brings you peace. Or you may be forced to choose between work and love, or forced to choose two jobs, one that will bring in money, and one that brings in joy and happiness. What you choose, depends on you. This card is usually a sign that it's safe to follow your heart here.
