VI • The Lovers (Reversed)
A pair of young lovers share an intimate moment in a beautiful spring garden filled with blooming trees, flowers, and a stream. Above and behind the couple, coming out of the clouds, an angel watches over the pair. The sun illuminates the winged angel, and the angel is reaching out and blessing the bond between the couple in a shower of beautiful, glowing light. Representing harmony and messages, the angel gently reminds us that love enlightens and heals.
The couple is on the verge of a kiss. Romance is in the air, and once the couple does kiss, their emotional commitment begins and their destinies will forever be entwined. They are about to discover whether they have chosen well.
The Lovers card is a card of choices made and romance. It is a wonderful illustration of the balance of opposites and the power of attraction.

In bloom at the couple’s feet are daffodils and hyacinths. These magickal flowers add the enchantment of chivalry and new love to the meaning of this card.
