In honor of Valentine’s Day, today’s card is the Lovers card — Salvadore Dali’s Los Enamorados.
It doesn’t matter if you’re single, dating, married, separated, divorced or widowed, chances are good you’re going to be thinking about relationships today.
The Lover’s card is about “love.” But it’s not always an easy or definitive love. Sometimes there are feelings of ambivalence or uncertainty, and sometimes there are choices to be made that can complicate things even more.
You may be wondering where you stand in a relationship or whether someone you care about feels the same. You may be ready to fall head over heels in love and wondering when someone new is coming in.
This version of the card is somewhat reminiscent of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. The male and female figures are poised between two columns and leaning in to one another. Their stance is somehow seductive and demure at the same time. The male figure’s nakedness is discreetly hidden behind a giant blue butterfly.
The butterfly and pitchfork are common symbols in this deck and appear to be referencing male (pitchfork) and female (butterfly) energy.
Also note the Cupid figure encircled in a heart above them. There is a serpent — another nod to the Garden of Eden myth — trailing between them and bisecting the two halves of the card.
What would the perfect relationship would look like to you? And how much are you willing to give up to attain it? Whether you’re single or attached there are sacrifices to be made and consequences to be lived with as a result.
Relationships are tricky and sometimes difficult to navigate. And the choices you make will lay the foundation for taking part in that “perfect relationship.” It all boils down to reassessing your needs and then redefining perfection.
