The Lovers in the tarot usually represents exactly what you’d think it would- togetherness and love. As one of the more literal cards in the deck, The Lovers is here to bring partnership and passion.
When this card appears in your spread, it is a nod to creating and collaborating with another person. This could represent a romantic relationship such as a marriage, or a coming together on a passion project. Perhaps you are already in this relationship when The Lovers appears? Read this as an emphasis on this energy and look closely to see why it is being brought into focus. Perhaps you are flying solo and like it that way? The Lovers could be encouraging you to lean into another person in a non romantic collaborative way. As always, check the cards around it and pull an additional card or two for additional information or elaboration.
Reversed, this card can indicate a breakup or parting of ways. When a relationship has run its course and the cards are on the table, the tarot can be known to put it plainly. If not romantically involved, think along the lines of passion and partnership and look to those relationships in your life.
Who have you outgrown and who is no longer serving your highest good? Who have you loved deeply but are now being called to let go of? The Lovers reversed can be a painful reality check; painful but usually necessary. Pull another card and ask the tarot how to move forward after this time of separation- for the tarot can create discomfort and provides solace all in the same reading.
