Number 6, The Lovers
The Lovers card is represented by two Pixies mirroring one another. They're reaching for each other, about to engage in a kiss. They represent harmony and balance. One Pixie has a ribbon around them that symbolizes flow. The other Pixie is entangled in snakes, which symbolize temptation and/or passion.
This card's main message is one of love and harmony in a relationship. They trust each other and the unity they have gives them strength. Their bond is strong and they each empower and encourage the other to be the best version of themselves.
The Lovers also represent choice. This card can sometimes suggest a decision needing to be made about an existing relationship, a temptation of the heart, or a choice on a potential love interest. Whatever it is, this choice should not be made lightly, as the consequences are ever lasting.
