The Lovers represents, most obviously, a romantic connection. There is an intense level of trust and shared passion, far beyond immediate gratification. However, it can also indicate an impending choice, and the potential of entering into a relationship. One must realize the gravity of the choice in question, and if you’re considering a relationship, what must you sacrifice to make it work? The choice indicated by The Lovers is a clear one between good and bad, hard and easy, but that doesn’t make it less complex. The obvious path may not be the best one for you. Before coming to a decision, consider all the consequences of your actions. Relationships may be at stake, and these lovers, friends and enemies are what make us human.
