What This Card Means to Me

Sex isn’t love and love isn’t sex. Sex is an action. Love is an emotion. Period.

You can act with love and you should act with love, but no action automatically equals love. There are those that will act with impure intent. Do not be blind to this fact. Consider your own intentions before you act. Are they pure or do you have an ulterior motive?

The Lovers card is about more than just romance. It’s about understanding your personal beliefs and standing true to your moral compass as you interact with others.
