Tarot Card for the Day ~ November 5

November 5, 2009

The Lovers

Gareth & Lyones

I believe this card last turned for us in early August. Never a moment too soon, says I!

I always get the biggest kick out of clients who come to me and ask, “How can I find the lover who will be my soul mate?” And I always take more than my fair share of grinchly delight in asking,

“You do realize what that means, right?  You do realize that your soul mate is the ONE PERSON who can ‘help you’ learn the most lessons the fastest.  Right?  As in, the ONE PERSON who can hit every single one of your hot buttons all at one time without even trying at all. RIGHT?”

The expressions I get in response are priceless.

Think about it.

Anyway, as I have said before when this card turned up, if you REALLY need to know what The Lovers portends as a daily card, 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.  Others believe it speaks of fidelity.

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

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.  [Don’t throw things.  I’m just the messenger.] 

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.

 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 [This advertisement brought to you by the committee to keep Neal out of debtor’s prison.  Ubest Huury Ubet, Secretary.]

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!
