The Lovers Card No 6 in the Major Arcana
This card is usually to do with matters of choice rather than with love. Although most people when they see this card assume a new lover is coming in to their lives. If this is the case then this person does change their lives irrevocably. In matters concerning choices and decisions the choice is difficult and almost impossible to come back from as your life is changed irrevocably by the decision. Consequences, commitment and responsibility is involved. The angel in this card looks over this couple facing a new direction. The sun in the background supports the right decision being made. In the Fool’s Journey the Lovers Card represents the power of choice and use of will. The Fool begins to form his own beliefs and values. Sometimes this can relate to an emotional commitment such as marriage but not always. It could be work or moving home for example. When this card is upright it can reassure you that you will make the right decision eventually although it is playing on your mind at the moment. The number six here seems to favour the relationship interpretation to me as the 6 is the number of harmony, balance, home, family and responsibility. The 6 asks you to look at your responsibilities and what can bring harmony to your home life and relationships. The action that you take should focus on the best outcome for yourself and others - not just you.
If you choose the Lovers Card for today then any decisions you make may have far reaching consequences.
