EXPERIENCING the Tarot LOVERS
All she could smell was the sweet scent of the flower, as the curious landscape shifted. It drew her closer and closer still… as if the scent filled the very sand of this place. She felt drawn in, by a completely invisible string. Above, a moon lotus hung in the sky, and giant wings caressed its petals. It smelled of love and sunshine. Was it cupid? An angel? She wasn’t afraid, yet she felt awash with curiosity and a hundred what ifs. She felt no fear, until the moment that she saw her… the other person approaching… from the other side of the strange hill.
Skip skip. Her heart jumped.
She felt excited and fascinated by the beautiful creature. Graceful. Honest. Stunning. And it was clear that their awareness was one of mutual fascination. The fear began to creep in, like it always did, beginning with the back of her shoulder blades and then moving to tighten her chest. Those memories in her gut. Those unhealthy experiences. And the rustling wings reached down and inched them closer together. “Beautiful little spirit. If you want to love, you must make a choice to love. You must say yes to your heart before the lotus opens.” She nodded at the wings, heart racing. And two desert flower crowns were placed down above the small spirits, marking them as two souls entwined. Two strong lovers. Resilient. Forever to be wrapped and destined to make their mark on one another’s paths. And all she could do was fall into this beating rhythm of oneness, and breathe into the union of the now.
Go into the landscape of The Lover’s card, and take a nap inside this healing lotus. What sensations do you experience? What colours, lights, textures and sounds accompany this safely wrapped and caressed state?
• Make a body parts collage. What fantasy muses, creatures and creations can you create? Take time noticing the qualities of different patterns and textures of skin as you create this. Tune into your unique sensuality and your own textures of essence.
• If you’re single and looking for a partner, spend some time and intention putting energy into your Soul Mate Wish List. This is not only to get clarity on what you’re looking for, it’s also so that the Universe can deliver your desires to you, as requested.
• If you’re in a relationship, make your unrequited fantasy wish list. It’s time to get clear on your desires and what you’d like to experience in this lifetime, especially if you have found your life long partner.
“Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.” – Plato
