More about the Lovers from the companion book:

6- Lovers
Along the Fool’s path with the Hierophant, or
teacher, she begins to discover her personal
orientations and longings. She has come through
a time of much learning, externally and internally.
She finds herself at the contemporary symbol for
choice and commitment in the city; the center
of the Brooklyn Bridge. She must discern which
direction is best for her in the long term- Brooklyn,
or Manhattan.
Throughout our education and/or formative
years, we are exposed to myriad ideas and
options for how we might one day choose to
make our way in the world. As we eventually
narrow those down we must choose which

facing the mature choices about what is best for
us. Often in the options are two clear choicesone
that is nurturing, healthy and congruent, and
one that is perhaps easy or instantly gratifying,
but will not serve us well in the long-term.
Whether it be a college major or an actual lover,
purchasing a new house or singing a long-term
contract, this card is about picking a path we can
really stick with.

make wise choices and commitments. Very often
this involves our most intimate energies in love
and money. The Lovers points our attention to
where in our lives we may need to make a commitment
of some sort, financially, emotionally,
spiritually- the spectrum in all the Majors is wide,
but the core the same- what commitment is best
for you and your life for the long haul? What I am
willing to carry with you as a part of your identity
for many years to come? What path does your
soul most need to take at this time? What new
responsibilities come with your choices and
