The Lovers Overview

The lovers card is one of a harmonious and well balanced relationship. At the top you can see an angel blessing and protecting the Lovers. This is Raphael and he is associated with the element of air, which can be translated into the aspect of communication in this card. Which as anyone knows, is the essential element to a successful relationship. There are many other aspects to this card that appear in the image. This is a card of choice or choices in love. Behind the female figure here there is an apple tree with a snake in it, indicative of the story of Adam and Eve which symbolizes humanities fall from grace. The flames behind the male figure of the card represent the passions of man, and the twelve flames are said to align with the signs of the zodiac. Should this card appear reversed in a reading, it would indicate the reverse of any of the positive points or energies listed above and may also suggest a wrong choice in love.
