THE LOVERS (06) is the 6th trump card in the major arcana and represents meaningful connections and relationships of all kind. Although commonly representing romantic and intimate relationships, THE LOVERS (06) suggests that you have a strong energetic and soul connection with a loved one. This could be a soul contract of any kind, but more often than not, it symbolizes a soulmate or life partner. This is a spiritual bond that ignites something within the two of you. It’s a spark of passion, romance, loyalty, devotion, respect, and spiritual oneness.
THE LOVERS (06) represents a open and raw form of communication between two people. It is a card of vulnerability, honesty, and an exchange where both parties can share themselves fully with one another. This relationship is about building each other’s confidence, trust, and faith. Harmonious connections and respecting each others feelings and perspectives are the key bond here.
On an individual level, this card is advising the seeker to clarify their values and beliefs. It’s about truly knowing what it is you want and deserve in a relationship, and clearly defining your boundaries to respect your faith and beliefs. It is important for any relationship to be made up of two people who have a clear idea of who they are as individuals, and what it is they desire from sharing life with another person.
At the core of this card’s symbolism, THE LOVERS (06) card is all about choice. The choices we make within ourselves as an individual, who we are in the world, what we want from life, and who we want to share ourselves with, is just the beginning. Once we have a clearly defined picture of ourselves as an individual, we expand our perspective to allow another person enter our mind and heart space. When we pair up in a partnership the choices become doubled. It’s important to define the relationship, what it needs, wants, and desires from each person, and what each person can do to honour themselves, the other person, and the relationship as a whole.
Finally, THE LOVERS (06) card encourages you to unify dual forces. You can bring together two parts (regardless of their individual energy) to create something that is whole, unified and harmonious. In every choice, there is an equal amount of advantage and disadvantage, opportunity and challenge, positive and negative. When you accept these dualities, you build the unity from which love flows.
