The Lovers is the card of love, relationships, passion, desire, and choices. Ruled by Gemini (the Twins), the Lovers speak to the duality of unity: yin and yang, masculine and feminine, heaven and earth. The Lovers show that perfect union is possible. You can find your soulmate.
The Lovers feature Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, with the archangel Raphael looking upon them from above. There is the serpent’s temptation on one side, and burning desire on the other. Raphael unites the couple, as he is the angel of communication. Although the world the Lovers inhabit is not perfect, they are each other’s other half.
If you are asking about how someone sees you, and you draw the Lovers, that means this person sees you as their soulmate. You connect on a deep spiritual level. What they feel goes beyond lust and infatuation. They genuinely love and respect you, and they can’t help but be proud of you even if you are not in the same room. They cannot live without you; you complete them.
The Lovers means that they see you as someone they can be completely honest with. They can show you their true self because they are confident you can understand them. This person is ready to expose all of their vulnerabilities to you. They are not afraid. They see you as someone who respects and loves them. You are their safe space.
For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the Lovers is a sign that they see you as their ideal partner. They are deep in the trenches for you. The emotional connection you share is more than enough to offer a romantic relationship with you. This person sees you as a part of their destiny. You are their soulmate, and they want to be with you for a long time.
For existing relationships, the Lovers means that they see you as the perfect partner who completes them. Even though you have been together for long, there is renewed passion that deepens your connection. Your partner is head over heels for you. They love you for who you are and what you make them feel. They don’t want to ever lose you.
If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, the Lovers shows that they see you as someone they still love. They regret ending the relationship. You always cross their mind. They realize they are nothing without you. They miss the bond you share. If you ask if a reconciliation is possible, consider it a “yes” and expect them to reach out soon!
In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Lovers means that they see you as a life partner. They feel your connection is out of this world. You are bonded in all timelines — you are their soulmate. Your partner wants to spend the rest of their life with you. They can’t even bear the thought of you not being with them. The card is a great sign for wedding bells, bundles of joy, and other life-changing commitments.
