In this version of the Lovers, we once again have two fey, a male and a female, who seem to be polar opposites. She is lighter than air, delicate, sensual, and almost translucent, while he is earthy, solid and a bit spiky. Yet, they come together half in his realm and half in hers - part way up a mountain, with the sky wide open around them. Each reaches out to touch each other, and though he is right-way-up and she is upside-down, they still manage to see eye-to-eye.
For me, this raises questions about how we make our choices. We could let ourselves be restricted by what others tell us is rational or normal or natural. Or we can choose with our hearts, no matter how strange those choices may seem to others.
Today, I have meetings all day. One of the things we’ll be looking at are plans for a corporate event to take place in October. My presence was requested at said event, however it’s on the 11th of October. Which, for those whose mind it may have slipped, is when I’ve been invited to speak at the UK Tarot Conference :) So, although my day job may not understand my refusal to attend, I’m sticking to my guns. I’m happy to help with the planning and preparations, but I won’t be there on the day!
I am grateful for times I can follow my heart.
