To Thine Own Heart Be True
There is a wealth of symbolism in this card: from the sun stained-glass window above them, through the crown-carrying doves, the flowers - both lilies and roses - the embracing couple, sideways to the acorns etched into the wall, then down to the snake and apple, fairy creatures, and right at the bottom, a bright red heart tucked into the ridge on which they stand.
The choices we make, then, should come from a place of both passion and purity, and hold the potential for growth. However, we can allow ourselves to choose poorly if we follow only passion. Thus the title of this post - if we follow our heart, rather than our head or our genitals, we have a better chance of choosing wisely.
I am grateful for all the choices in my life which I don't regret.
