another card reading from alison....
I thought I’d address this particular issue today, as so
many of our visitors here at Lotus are looking for guidance
from the Tarot in such a situation.
The Lovers card is the card to look out for in your
readings; it represents a time of choice and dilemma that
could have a significant impact on your life.
You may be faced with a choice between suitors or lovers,
or whether to stay in a relationship/marriage or leave, and
when it comes to affairs of the heart, knowing which is the
right choice can be very difficult indeed.
The Lovers card signifies intimate relationships and
physical attraction to another, and it’s also about
struggling with temptation and establishing who or what you
really care about.
The emotion and desire associated with this card is
powerful and represents deep love. Sometimes it may not
refer to intimate relationships but to a force that draws
two entities together - people, ideas, events or groups.
The Lovers signifies a tough decision and is symbolic of
the need to overcome temptation when at a crossroads in
your life. This card suggests a need to maintain a firm
belief in yourself, and trust that your own moral values
and principles will show you the right path, even when
intoxicating forces are tempting you to take the wrong one.
Maturity and integrity are needed, as temptation to opt for
the ‘easier’ or ‘most exciting’ option may lead to hurt and
disappointment. However, The Lovers card suggests that
sometimes in life, taking a risk can promise greater reward
You may feel trapped and unhappy in a loveless relationship
or marriage and want to leave, yet you fear taking the
risk. However, letting go of a relationship that brings no
pleasure allows you to be free to attract new love into
your life. This is a risk that could well bring you
greater love and joy.
The risk or temptation that may not always prove so
positive is indulging in a sexual affair when married or in
a committed relationship. It’s true that sometimes we fall
out of love with our spouse or partner and in love with
someone else, and such choices can lead to new and more
fulfilling relationships, but such temptation can often
lead to trouble. Only you can be the judge of whether your
choices are right for you.
That’s easier said than done you might say!!! Of course
you’re right! That’s why The Lovers card represents a
dilemma, a time of choice that could have a major impact on
So when this card comes up in your reading and you have a
significant choice to make, look to your heart and core
values to help guide you to the right decision.
Love and Joy,
