Tarot Card for the Day ~ August 22

August 21, 2009

The Lovers

Gareth & Lyones

This card last turned for us just about two weeks ago.  And what an absolutely perfect card for my dear friends Catherine and Ryan, who will be tying the knot at about 5 this evening!  Blessings, Dears!  The cards, they say, “Lookin’ good!”

Anyway, as I have said before when this card turned up, if you REALLY need to know what The Lovers portends as a card-for-the-day, you more ’n likely need greater, deeper and more intensive help than I can provide.  Nevertheless…  

 

Some readers see this card as a harbinger of attraction, love, beauty, and trials overcome.  [Nice.]  Others believe it speaks of fidelity.  [Good.]

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, finds lots of wonderful things in this card, among them the blossoming of a valuable and balanced relationship or a connection on a higher level. [Really good!]

So yes, The Lovers is at the very least the card of a good, solid, balanced, loving relationship − one that is comfortable, open and committed, if not necessarily intimate.  Platonic will, in fact, do very nicely. 

When I work with clients and this card comes up, I tell them they are being guided to look for perfect partnerships in whatever areas of life they may be asking about. 

And I remind them to bear in mind that partnerships are not just about people. 

A perfect partnership can be the right romantic partner at the right time, certainly.

 Like Morticia & Gomez.    

 

 

Or maybe even 

Jay & Silent Bob. 

 Just kidding.  Really.

But it can also be

~ the right working relationship (boss or assistant) or

~ the right work,

~ the right opportunity,

~ the right client(s),

~ the right doctor,

~ the right book,

~ the right business location,

~ the right prayer,

~ the right meditative practice,

~ the right sacred space ,

~ the right Springer spaniel puppy or even

~ the right Tarot reader

So when you have choices to make today, AND in the foreseeable future, look for PERFECT partnership.  You deserve it, and you should not settle for less.

Bright and perfect blessings!  Especially for Catherine & Ryan!
