The Lovers Tarot Card MeaningOften associated with love and the blessing of a soul mate, The Lovers card mostly speaks of choices, virtue and balance.

The Lovers is the card of choices. Only in certain cases and readings does it actually refer to a relationship or love. There is a certain irony to the fact that much confusion built up around this card, which speaks of making decisions and seeing past confusion.

In a spread dedicated to love, this card can be highly positive and could comfort the idea that true soul mates have met.

The person you chose to be with is the right one for you. It confirms good fortune for matters of the heart, weddings and engagements.

The Lovers is also one of the cards that speaks of balance in all aspects of life, from love to finances and health.

Tarot Card Meaning LoversLOOKING BACK

If you go back to the Marseille symbolism or medieval Italian artwork, you will immediately see why this is the card of choices and hesitation and not so much the card of love.

The scene is inspired by the story of Greek hero Hercules facing a life changing decision.

He must choose between prudence and adventure, between responsibility and pleasure. Many recent decks changed our vision of this card but this simplification can take away some of its power. This is why studying the original and ancient cards too will always bring you more knowledge.
