6 – THE LOVERS

An eternal bond (or longstanding, in these godless days). The Lovers get their power and enrichment from each other. And this particular union will prove to be very significant. The flower I picked circa 1976 and pressed in a book when I was a wee little Marquis indeed. It represents a stretched expanse of time.

If courting, this card gives you the go-ahead — hell, it’s shoving you down the gangplank. If currently enjoying the favours of a loved one, this card reminds you that it is from this significant other where you receive your power, happiness and contentment. If you’re having a rocky time with this person, the card is asking you to remember just why you got into this in the first place. It is not necessary to end anything now.

I have also done readings where this card showed up and the Querant had no applicable love-interests. In such cases, the card represents the durability of established people or things. A quick jog down memory lane might do you a world of good. Or just go to a second hand store and buy some old clothes.
