Tarot Contemplation – The Lovers

The Lovers is associated with the astrological sign of Gemini, “The Twins”.  It almost always points to partnerships with just one other person.  Generally and not surprisingly this indicates a romantic partnership, but of course this is not always the case.  Less frequently, it points to the duality that all of us have inwardly — between male/female, yin/yang, approach/avoidance and the like.  It is possible when this card appears that you are feeling ambivalent about a relationship or situation in your life.  It could be that your heart is telling you one thing and your head, another.  In general, the thing to do is (within the bounds of your morality) to follow your heart.  Some people say there are only two modes that any of us are operating under at any one time:  fear or love.  Whenever you can, choose love.  Working with a special person, like a mentor or leader that you have faith in, can help you along your spiritual journey.  However, don’t blindly follow; question everything, listen to your heart and your gut reactions; take what is offered that is helpful to you and disregard the rest.  A mentor may be getting ready to come into your life.  Remember the old saying:  “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.”
