Duality is the name of the game today, and with Venus in Gemini, this energy is amplified. The Lovers card in tarot represent both Gemini and Venus. We must find the beauty (a venusian theme) in all sides of ourselves (masculine/feminine, shadow/light, human/spirit, active/reactive), accept it and communicate it authentically to the outside world. We will be encountering in others traits we fail to see or accept within ourselves and so this is a great time to focus on shadow work. Today will be a day when our physical environment and relationships reflect the axiom “As Above, So Below. As Within, So Without”.
As we see in other’s the unrecognizable self, the desire to join, unify and connect arises. Embarking on new friendships, new ways of communicating and of seeing ourselves are highlighted with this card. This union though can also happen within, as we integrate all the parts of ourselves into a cohesive whole, we are more readily available and able to connect with others more deeply and authentically. Obviously, this is a card that also reflects soulmate relationships. The necessary reminder for all of us is that soul mates are there to trigger us into growth, by bringing to light the things about ourselves that we hide or are unaware of. When we have conflict within ourselves with regard to others, focusing on the opportunities for mutual understanding is the best way to build intimacy and sustain personal growth.
