VI - the Lovers

A man and a woman stand naked in a garden. They seem a little shy of each other, and the woman holds onto a tree as though for security. An Angel touches her head, and an Italian greyhound sits at her feet with his paws neatly crossed. There are birds in the bushes, and the garden is lush and leafy.

My Interpretation: Fulfillment through a relationship.

Love of one creates compassion for others. Material happiness and security. If in a new relationship, this card indicates that it will deeper and more significant than previous relationships. If in an established relationship, it indicates that problems will be overcome and the bond is deep and strong despite any surface tensions.

(Reversed: Failure, division and frustration. Possible breakdown of a relationship.)

Edit notes: Couldn't use v1.0 pic of Courtly Love as condition of original was too dodgy. This card is more similar to the Rider-Waite card, Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden with a benevolent angel giving a blessing over them. I've added a dog as a symbol of fidelity, and birds for the spiritual nature of this card.

This card is dedicated to Louise Lister and her beautiful family :^)
