A Deeper Exploration
Universal Mind : 6 The Lovers
People of the world are crying out for Unity, which is the expression of what The Lovers card represents. It covers the whole spectrum of union from romantic love to our own connection with Source. We yearn for connectedness, whether it be to merge with the Divine within us, merge with another as Soulmates or merge with a community of like minded Souls to create a “New Earth”. The Lovers presents us with a choice. Will we surrender all that we are in order to become more? Will we risk being vulnerable to the growth and inevitable change that being in relationship brings? This is a growth that can occur when all parties involved are relating with open Hearts for the good of all concerned.
The Trap : 1 Magician Reversed
The Magician reversed reminds us of what happens when we enter into any relationship without being open in it or open to being changed by it. He’s present in the man that clings to unhealthy ways, whose habits engender abuse and destroy trust, in a lack of willingness to change. He’s present in the woman that writes an unverbalised script for her partner and gets disappointed when he doesn’t fulfil his “role”. He’s control, the harnessing of power by taking it from another because he’s disconnected from his own Source. As one becomes more the other becomes less. He’s the leader manipulating the masses whether aggressively or passively, creating confusion, distraction, smoke and mirrors, conflict that divides The Lovers and pits family members against each other so he can do what he likes with little resistance.
The Treasure : Queen of Swords Reversed
When we are faced with a Magician reversed, when we finally see through all the smoke and mirrors, when we realise that actions don’t align with words, it’s inevitable that we will get disheartened. The Queen of Swords reversed can reveal to us deceit, she’ll smash our rose coloured glasses so we can clearly see that out union (whether with a person, community or belief) is an illusion. She’ll ask us to use her sword to discern, speak up, call out, cut ties. This does not sound much like treasure but her gift is the innate intelligence that allows us to choose separation from that which is false so that we may again hear clearly the Wisdom of our own Heart. In our aloneness we find ourSelves back as the yearning Lover with a choice. Stay in separation and risk bitterness or take the journey inwards to unite with ourSelves. As we claim our own power from within and learn to yield it with Love and Wisdom, our honesty and integrity leads us to a place where we can truly unite with another Lover or Community to create a better world.
