The Imagery and Symbolism of the Lovers Tarot Card
A naked man and woman are standing naked in the Garden of Eden. There is the Tree of knowledge behind the woman and tree of life behind the man. The tree of life has 12 flames on it that represent the 12 signs of the zodiac. There is a serpent wrapped around the tree of knowledge that shows temptation, but the woman is looking at the angel and not at the snake. The women and man, are not wearing anything, which shows that they have nothing to hide from each other. The image of angel Raphael is above their heads giving them blessings. Raphael is the angel of air. There is a huge and warm sun behind the angel. The sun represents warmth, joy, energy, vitality, and passion. If we look at the imagery of the card, the lovers’ card gives the idea of soul mates. Two people who are just made for each other, the people who have nothing to hide and who are attracted to each other. On pictorial level, this is a card of love, harmony, passion, and attraction but on a deeper level, it is about the connection and harmony between polarities. The woman represents the emotional side and the man represents the logical side within a person. This is also a card about choices as well as about harmony. Whether the querent wants to choose logic over emotions or emotions over logic or will he or she wants to proceed with the perfect harmony of both. In ancient decks, there were two women on the lover’s card standing beside the man. They make it clearly a card about choices.
