The Lovers Tarot Card: Meaning and Symbolism
The Lovers Tarot card is the sixth numbered card and seventh overall in the 22 Major Arcana. This card symbolizes passion. This passion does not have to be sexual, just a strong emotion. The card usually shows a man with a woman on either side of him and a winged creature representing Cupid.
Men and women have to work together for anything in this world to work out in the end. The man has to choose between a humble woman or one that has material wants. This can be a difficult choice for many men to make.
The winged creature is usually depicted without gender because it symbolizes a higher part within the card reader that is without gender. This is because the cards are trying to teach us that our true selves, our souls, are without gender and are therefore without social bounds our bodies and minds have. That is why humans can have such passion. They are simply trying to exist. You need that balance to do so. The complementing of opposites helps us to find the balance.
