Symbolism and Meaning of the Lovers Tarot Card
An angel holds out her hands in blessing upon a man and a woman, Adam and Eve, the primal couple, the original mother and father. Behind Eve is the serpent in the tree of knowledge and behind Adam is the tree of life. Between the lovers are the clouds of unknowing, holding fother fertility and mystery. At their feet runs the path of life, ascending to the mountain of knowledge. All is illumined by the great sun of Oneness. This is above all the card of Human Love.
