The Lovers is a card of love, sexuality, choices, partnerships. Most commonly depicted as a naked couple in a beautiful garden it aludes to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. There is a choice here, however reason is clouded by feelings of love, passion or lust, and once we have tasted the fruit there is no returning to the garden. This card serves to remind us that as the sun shines on us and we are surrounded by beauty, temptations of the flesh and the elevated feeling of love we must sacrifice something in return.
Numerology: The Lovers is card number 6 if the major arcana. This is the number of responsibility and family bonds. It's through unconditional love that we are bound to our family and committed to serving them. Families are created and continued through the union of a man and a woman and their sacrifice of freedom and singularity.
