06-The Lovers – Upright Thoth Deck

Your Chosen Card – The Lovers Upright Thoth Deck

When upright, the Lovers card represents an important choice that will significantly influence the course of one’s life. This choice may have to do with a romantic relationship or a decision to marry and have children. The associated Hebrew letter Zayin conjures up the image of plowing a field and cultivating it wisely to ensure a good harvest. The decisions you make now will have long-term consequences, so it is imperative to think things through, get sound advice, and choose wisely. The association of the card with the sign Gemini suggests love between individuals that can endure for an eternity.

Complete Book of Tarot: Ruled by fleet-footed Mercury, the messenger of the gods, Gemini comes third in the zodiac. Gemini the Twins is an adaptable mutable sign associated with the Lovers, trump VI.

World of Psychics: If you are buying a deck, though, be guided by your intuition. The cards work through images, and images are the language of your intuition and psychic mind. It’s through the plethora of symbols, and in the case of the Thoth deck astrological references as well, that you will discover more about your own path and how to access the ancient wisdom the Tarot contains. The 78 cards can make you smile as time and time again the same things are suggested to you, as I have found out!

Complete Book of Tarot: The other part of the proposed definition states that divination attempts to discern occult information as though by supernatural means. Not infrequently, the knowledge gained during a tarot reading feels eerily as if it were a form of extra-ordinary knowing or as if it had a supernatural origin. Various dictionaries define divination as an inspired guess (where does the inspiration come from?), a presentiment, an intuitive perception, a prophecy, an instinctive foresight, or simply as the interpretation of signs and omens.
