Card Meanings

The Tarot Lovers in Love

VI The Lovers Thoth Tarot

The Lovers is a card we’re all quite happy to see in a love and relationship reading since it’s almost always a sign that the person we are reading for is involved or about to be involved with one of the key players in his or her life – a soul mate even.

However, this doesn’t always mean that the other person is ‘The One’ in the sense of he or she being the one the seeker settles down with. It simply means that this person has come into the seeker’s life for a reason (to mirror qualities of self) and also that important choices that shape the seeker’s future have to be made due to the impact of this relationship.

In a single person’s Love Tarot reading, The Lovers invariably means that they are about to meet a new love. However, 3 of Swords indicates that the feelings won’t be reciprocated. The Knight of Wands shows us that the other person is likely to be a ‘player’ rather than someone who is willing or able to commit.

For committed love on the horizon, we want The Lovers to show up with the 2 or 10 of Cups, the Knight of Cups, The Hierophant, The Sun or the 4 of Wands.

If this card shows up in a reading for someone who is already in a relationship, it’s often a sign that they or the person they are involved with is ready to take the relationship to the next level. Reversed, and/or next to Justice and depending on other cards in the reading, it could indicated divorce.

It can also indicate that you can now simply enjoy the pleasure of the company of your beloved, especially in combination of the 10 of Cups and the 4 of Wands. Show your beloved that you have no intention of taking them for granted and vow to yourself to make the happiness last and last…

The Lovers can also indicate a soul mate with which you share a past life connection. Click HERE to read more about various card combinations and what they mean in terms of past lives and present karmic contracts.

On an intimate level, language and expressing one’s wishes fearlessly to the beloved is part of the energy of this card which corresponds with the sign of Gemini. This is not an energy that lends itself well to D/s in sex, unless you do it playfully and with the intention of switching roles at some point. The Lovers energy is more concerned with equality and playfulness. Light touch, lots of laughter, whispering sweet nothings, dirty talk and tickles (feathers!) would suit the Gemini energies.

  1. i got 8 of wands, lovers reversed and justice. I wasnt asking the tarot about a love relationship but i think this may have something to do with one, am I right?

  2. Does the lovers card always refer to the querant? Even when its in a position that is giving information about another person? Could it suggest that the other person has romantic interests elsewhere?

  3. Hi Lisa, I got the Lovers and Ace of cups as his behavior towards me in the next 2 months. These cards look good but I hope I am not being unrealistic. Does that mean he is going to treat me like a new love or lover?

      • Hi Lisa, you are right. We had a relationship before and then broke off. Recently, we have patched back as friends. So I drew the cards to find out his behaviour towards me in the next 2 months…so it could be renewed love like what you said.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts, feedback and questions.
