Interpreting the Lovers Tarot Card
An introduction to the meaning of the Lovers tarot card
In any commitment, compromise and surrender are required if a stable and healthy future is desired, and the Lovers understand this, removing all defences and insecurities which are replaced by the strength and the security of true love. The Lovers do not allow themselves to be entirely consumed by the depths of love, for true love positions emotion and logic in a harmonious balance, directing the soul under love, rather than taking it hostage.
This balance also relates to the equal representation of both masculine and feminine energies, retaining the associations of passion with the male sign and intuition with the female sign. The Lovers are a perfect combination of these opposing elements, the masculine force igniting the flames of longing and affection at the core of love, while the feminine counterpart brings a sense of awareness and clarity to direct the relationship smoothly forward. The Lovers are thus equipped with a power that is pure and well-intended, shared and equal, enlightening and never restrictive, and avoids destructiveness by focusing and aligning the intensity of passion and desire toward a common purpose. The irrationality of love is equalized with the wisdom that emotion must be focused if it is to be effective and flourish with longevity, and so the Lovers represent this fragile state, existing between, but also embracing the extremes of human nature.
