TAROT Card of the Day: The Lovers
The companion book describes The Lovers as “Together through the guidance of an angel, the lovers find their souls entwining as they look into each other’s eyes.”
The Lovers symbolise the love that comes from within oneself. Here the card suggests love can be found in romance, as well as the union of the mind, body and soul. In terms of self, this card indicates a resolute love of oneself – a comfort and balance that leads to an outward-radiating positive energy. In terms of an individual, this card represents the idealised and perfect partner. In terms of a situation, the Lovers card can symbolise an ideal partnership where everything feels right and there is an unspoken unison that envelopes everyone involved.
TAROT Card of the Day – TAROT Lesson
In addition to the companion book’s meaning:
There will come a point in our lives that we start to ask about when and how are we going to meet our soul mate, twin flame or true love. We always have this longing to be with our “other-half.” We think that we can never feel complete and at peace until he or she comes into our life.
Finding true love starts from within us. We need to care for ourselves, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It also requires acceptance of who we are – knowing our limitations, and improving on the things that we can. It also means finding peace and contentment on our own, being independent and happy. It is easier said than done, but like anything else, it takes practice.
We have to see the beauty and establish stability within ourselves. Once we have achieved the stage where we love and accept ourselves wholeheartedly, then our energy will be mature and strong enough to attract our mate.
When love comes, we must respect it for what it is. We might have a fixed idea of how we want to be loved, and find our relationship falls short of our expectations. We need to accept and appreciate the fact that people express their love in different ways. Yes, different from how we do and how we want.
But just to establish what Love should be for all of us, let us see how it is best described:
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13:4–8a, (New International Version)
1 “True love is eternal, infinite, and always like itself. It is equal and pure, without violent demonstrations: it is seen with white hairs and is always young in the heart.” – Honore de Balzac.
2 “Love is more than three words mumbled before bedtime. Love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day.” – Nicholas Sparks
3“In the final analysis, love is the only reflection of man’s worth.” – Bill Wundram,
I say that love is immensely powerful as it is and we can never coerce it. We need to be flexible and learn to dance with love in order to gauge what we are willing to surrender and live-up to, without losing ourselves.
Take care and until the next time! Many blessings to you!
