The Lovers Tarot Card in Your Reading

Although many people think this card promises a beautiful relationship, it is mainly a card of choices. We can’t help but be attracted to someone, but actually entering a relationship is much more a matter of choice. Want to commit? Do you dare to commit? Of course, it depends on your current relationship status and whether you are open to a new relationship.

It is very difficult to distinguish whether you are open to something. Often we tell ourselves that we are opening up to a new partner, but much more often our hearts are closed because we have been hurt in the past and are afraid that it will happen again. This betrays itself by not wanting to commit for a long time or being far too critical of what a new person brings to themselves.

Opening your heart is a choice; it’s not something that just happens. But you do it based on your old experiences. Or not.

Not just a relationship card

The Lovers is not just a relationship card. It’s a choice card. We must make choices in life. Will you accept that new job? Will you start that new diet? It all depends on the image you have of your future in what you want.

Making a choice can sometimes be very difficult. Sometimes it feels like you’re being torn into two pieces, so you postpone answering the choice because you may be afraid of something. But you know, not making a choice is also a choice. In that respect, you are always “in” a choice, and if that does not work out as you had hoped, then it is time to make an alternative choice.

The angel in the background is Raphael, the patron saint who focuses on healing and healing. Making a hard decision is often the point because that is where healing takes place. If you really don’t know what to do, consider asking for advice from a counselor, an advisor, or a friend. They may help you choose.
