The Lovers - Incidental Tarot
Well, Hellooo there!
The lovers is all about that sudden intense recognition and passion. It doesn’t have to be about romantic love. It can be the passionate connection of a job that is the perfect fit, a friend who you can communicate with through a look, an exciting project. The lovers is about serendipity and perfect timing!
As Holly DeFount says, “The excitement and intensity of intertwining fates and passionate new relationships.
The Lovers in a word: PASSION.”
What is your newly discovered or kindled passion?
The downside of passion is becoming so full of it that you neglect everything else and have no perspective. Those who are totally ruled by their passions miss out on substance and can create a lot of drama. If you feel a bit too giddy, make sure to stop, take a step back and ground yourself.
A note: Since it is Valentine’s Day or as I was informed this morning if you are in Mexico, Feliz Día de Amor y Amistad! (Happy Love and Friendship Day!) I like that much better, it’s totally inclusive. And that includes self love as well. Unless you are a narcissist, self love may be the one we most often forget! Self love should absolutely be passionate. One of my favorite women, Mae West, once said when asked if she liked herself, “I don't like myself, I'm crazy about myself.” That feeling is what I wish for all of us!
