04 The Lover

No matter what god or higher power you believe in, we are all part of a collective consciousness, both in this world and the next. Whether your reading comes from tarot, angels or archetype cards we are delving into that collective consciousness. If you are present with a psychic or clairvoyant who has strong connections, you may be connected to individuals but more likely you will be communicating with part of this universal energy which connects us all. Much of the connection comes through our own energies and this is particularly true of online readings.

Upright Meanings: love, engagements, proposals, cooperation, balance, marriage, relationships, potential soulmates, harmony, happy couples, connection, compatibility, equality, romance, unity, friendship, partnership, attraction

Reversed Meanings: unhappy couples, dominance, losing friendships, divorce, arguments, incompatibility, imbalance, disconnection, ending partnerships, breakups, disharmony, abuse, violent passion, separation, misunderstanding, inequality

This card indicates a strong attachment in a relationship, a physical pull that colors all else to the detriment of others in your life. Being true to the situation is important. When the card appears in reverse it suggests we should take care, that the relationship is not exactly as it seems and rushing into something may cause pain in the long run.

The angel associated with The Lover is The Angel Prince Of The East

Belonging to the REALM: Heaven of Form , The Angel Prince of The East is in the group known as Angel Princes.
ANGELIC FUNCTION: To help the multitudes open and express their feelings
GIFTS FOR THE EARTH: This angel can help you to accept your feelings; open your heart; feel safe expressing yourself and your innermost feelings

Our feelings are a strong and elemental force which can unleash great waves of emotion. Feelings, if unexpressed, ferment and form an unconscious pull of their own, eventually demanding to be expressed and resolved. When we are open to feelings, on the other hand, emotions flow like water. What we seek is a balance in which we are aware of our feelings and can also express them. We want to feel what is true for us rather than suppress our life force in bottled up emotions. Repressed anger, sadness or anxiety will inevitably draw us into situations which can act like a magnet, pulling our feelings up to the surface. If we are unaware, our emotional projections may make us feel we are the victims of a situation, rather than owning that it has been created out of our unexpressed emotions.

The Angel Prince of the East helps and guides us to experience the richness of our feelings and to find legitimate and creative outlets for them. He blesses us each time we allow our emotions honest acknowledgement, and he helps us to transmute negative feelings into legitimate creative expression. He shows us how to paint, sing, or dance our feelings so that they do not stay locked in our unconscious, fomenting situations which only lead to more pain. We can pray to this angel to help us feel comfortable with our feelings and not to get caught up in judging ourselves for whatever they may be. When we allow ourselves to feel our feelings we are connecting to the depths of our spirit.

The Angel Prince of the East offers us the support and comfort we need to experience and express our feelings. When we do this we are more fully alive, in the mainstream of life. When we allow our feelings to flow we are giving ourselves the gift of release and empowering ourselves to be more truly who we are.

With each expression of sadness or anger that we own and integrate into our personality we grow and mature. True self-empowerment can happen only when we allow our feelings scope. They are, after all, part and parcel of our being, and this angel wants us to feel safe with what we feel.

Complete Book of Tarot: Critics might also object that the theory of archetypes is merely a fanciful speculation with little scientific support. Interestingly, recent studies at Emory University have demonstrated that memories of experiences shared by our ancestors may be transmitted through our DNA. For example, scientists were able to show that mice trained to fear a specific odor would pass these emotions down through generations, presumably enabling future mice to be better prepared to deal with a similar situation. As Dr. Brian Dias of Emory University has explained, ‘Our results allow us to appreciate how the experiences of a parent, before even conceiving offspring, markedly influence both structure and function in the nervous system of subsequent generations.’ 25

Angel Insights : Other common ways angels appear—in distilled divine states similar to having wings—are as a bright or glowing white light, as small dots of colored lights, or as what looks like white vapor or mist. When angels appear in their divine state, they don’t tend to say much—or if they do the message is very brief and to the point.
