The Lovers…A Game Changer!

May 26th, 2018 | By | Category: Articles, Uncategorized

When I pull the Lovers card, I don’t immediately think of Marriage. I think, you found the love of a lifetime. A love so perfect that it completes you in some magnificent way no matter what. It may be for a fleeting moment or an eternity.

I don’t care what card in the deck represents you. Whether you consider yourself the Queen or King of Pentacles or The Emperor or Empress, the Lovers card is a Game Changer for everyone. All bets are off.

There is nothing in this world that prepares you emotionally for pulling the Lovers card. If it’s in your destiny, then buckle up. The words, the Lovers sounds simple enough. And yet it is quite the opposite. Because this is not the sweet gentle love that comes with the 2 or 10 of Cups. This is a passionate love that will drive you crazy. This person has the ability to heighten your emotions and make you feel vulnerable. They know how to infuriate you like no other person could in this life. They also know how to bring you to the most peaceful state of mind that exists. The good will out weigh the bad. And any of these couples will tell you working through the heartache was worth it.

When this person shows up in your life, If you are intuitive, you will look into their eyes and think… where did this person come from? Have I met them from a previous life? They will take your breath away and make you lose your words. You will be drawn in like a moth to a flame.

I was doing a tarot reading one day, I pulled the Lovers card for a woman who had at least 20 years on me and I said, ” You and your husband had a lot of obstacles thrown your way in this lifetime but you always managed to work it out no matter what. Whether it was health issues or people trying to come between the two of you, somehow you always managed to work it out because you love each other more than most people are capable of loving each other.” She looked at me and said, “Yes that’s correct. And I definitely won’t let anyone come between us.”

Have you ever read or saw that movie called The Notebook by Nichols Sparks? The story of Allie and Noah. They meet and fall in love one summer when they are young , then separate for many years. Allie becomes engaged to another man, but just can’t stop thinking about Noah. And so she finds herself standing before him again, needing to make that big decision…between him and another man. Noah tells her, ” “So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me… everyday.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

I love the Notebook because they do it. They get their shit together and they make it happen. They are married. They live a long happy life and have kids. And then they curl up in a bed together and die of old age. Dream come true. Allie and Noah are a fine example of the Lovers card. They overcome their obstacles and their love happens regardless of what else is going on in the world.

But The Lovers card doesn’t always work this way. Another favorite love story of mine is that of  the poet WB Yeats. I have always loved Yeats. The moment I was sitting in my college poetry class with a giant book of poets and poetry, I found myself looking at his name and poems and immediately falling in love.  I would love to sit in an Irish Pub listening to Yeats talk about love. I want to hear the complete story of the endless obstacles that came between him and his muse.

And his story is not a fictional piece like the Notebook. The story is a bit more incomplete on record. She actually destroyed all his love letters while he kept hers. Yeats falls in love with a woman for multiple decades. She loves him enough to have a beautiful friendship and a love affair with him for several years. She loves him so much that she creates a deep astral bond between them that cannot be broken. An astral marriage that will most likely last an eternity. But why they never completely got it together and married…I just don’t know.

And so I leave you with the words of WB Yeats-

A Drinking Song
Wine comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That’s all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh.
