The Lovers

The Lovers

previous      next


This card is based upon the Book of Thoth version.  Cloaked in purple, the Hermit acts as a priest ruling over the union of man and wife.  Above the old man is the instigator of love, Cupid, shooting his arrow.  Bound in the lemniscate, the posture of the family sybolizes the eteral bond of blood relations.  A red lion and white eagle are signs of alchemical harmony.
