The Lovers in the Tarot of Quotes

The Lovers in the Tarot of QuotesThere are thousands of love quotes out there, but none of them sums up the true essence of love, because nobody really knows what it is.

Is it passion? Desire? Attraction? Lust? Devotion? Attachment? Madness?

When I chose the quote for the Lovers in the Tarot of Quotes, I wanted it to reflect the image.

Doesn’t the woolly couple look like soul mates?

Shakespeare’s quote “Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind” reflects the Lovers’ attribution to the element Air, which is associated with intellect, logic, reason and life’s challenges.

Challenges…yes…We all have our own love stories to tell, which will have generated a multitude of feelings and emotions, from happiness and elation to tragedy and sadness.

Everyone experiences love in various and different ways, and my image of the Lovers reflects love as caring, nurturing, unconditional, protecting, trusting, comforting and enriching.

But we also know that there is a dark side to love, and we may see a hint of it in this cosy image – restricting, clingy, needy, possessive, dependent.

The astrological association of the Lovers with Gemini suggests the need for balance between the heart and the mind, freedom and commitment, trust and knowledge.

Two bodies sharing one soul suggests lack of individuality, conflict and choices to be made, when one of them wants to break out of the cosy union.

“To be wise and love exceeds man’s might.” W. Shakespeare

Love can be precarious, but let’s not be cynical. Let’s just enjoy the heart-warming image of two loving sheep in the Yorkshire Dales.

Warmest wishes,

    1. Thank you, Arwen 😉 It was a magical moment when I passed the sheep; they were so content and relaxed, they didn’t move away from me, so I could take this shot 😉
