Six: The Lovers of the Major Arcana

The Lovers card has two pictures.  Older tarot decks will have the card on the left. This scene depicts a man who must choose between his mistress and wife because Cupid has delivered his wondrous curse. Newer decks and specifically Rider brand decks will contain the one on the right which shows Adam and Eve under the angel of air, Raphael.  Both cards contain the same themes.  Clearly, this card will prove that love has entered one's life. It is pure and accentuated by clear communication. If not pertaining to romance, its appearance means that there is a choice to be made.
Meanings: choice, temptation, love, harmony, and teamwork.
Reverse: arguments, possible broken marriage, and a wrong choice could be made.
