Card of the Week: The Lovers

The Lovers card from the Universal Waite Tarot Deck.

As I was shuffling for the card of the week, several cards jumped out, but only one card flipped up. The Lovers. This is the card of the week.

The Lovers card depicts a man and woman with an angel flying above them. The imagery is a nod to the Biblical description of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.

This card could represent a relationship, or the need to make a choice. There may be a new relationship ahead, changes to your current relationship, or the need to confront an issue in a relationship.

This week, you may realize that changes need to be made, or that you need to make a decision. Gentle and honest reflection and communication will be necessary, either with yourself or someone close to you.

In the background there is a mountain, it seems to stand between the man and woman. There may be something which challenges your current philosophies, or is blocking your communication, but it needs to be confronted before you can move forward. The angel in the card signifies that Divine inspiration is there to help guide you as you communicate and make your decision.
