Major Arcana VI The Lovers sounds romantic doesn’t it? It must be about romance, it has the word ‘Lovers’ in the title of the card! Alas, I’ve never found anything remotely romantic to be found in this card historically in my readings, although many other readers have, and do treat this card as THE romantic catalyst card.
This Major Arcana VI Lovers is a highly personal card, and it’s Gemini Twins influence demands a decision must be made at a Soul level. There is a choice that must be made with this card, generally regarding connections (all areas), and VI Lovers really asks that we look within and choose the most harmonious option for ourselves. So often, this card implies a possible sacrifice.
[The first seven Major Arcana numbered 1-7 (eight cards with The Fool doubling as both zero and number twenty-two) are concerned with building and strengthening an individual’s personal identity through these Archetypal stages of standard human psyche development. The following seven Major Arcana numbered 8-14 are concerned with integrating external influences with their established identity and growing and maturing within these initial frameworks as a result. Lastly, the final seven Major Arcana 15-22 deal with consequences of decisions made within the initial 14 (two sets of seven 1-7 and 8-14) Major Arcana and assessing the strength and flexibility of their character’s and internal foundations, in allowing the capacity for further growth, and what changes must be made as a result. Quite often XVI The Tower Major Arcana well and truly tests our mettle, its where weak foundations crumble under pressure (built in pride and/or ego and nothing tangible) or our entire value system, or way of life alters and changes beyond recognition, requiring a complete tear down and start over from scratch.]
