Tarot 6 - The Lovers Picture

Upright - The Lovers card is about finding that other half of ourselves. It might be a person, but it can also be anything that completes us, that speaks to us - a career, a cause, a religion. It usually involves us making a choice to go for that something and so feel whole, unified.

Upside-down - The Lovers card is very interesting when turned upside down. The choice that is being made is being made for the wrong reasons--and therefore, is probably the wrong choice. You aren't using your head or intuition; communication between the two halves is not happening except below the waist. Putting it another way, two things are coming together that may fit, but do not create that unity.

Creature – Satyrs are most commonly described as having the upper half of a man and the lower half of a goat. Mature satyrs are often depicted in Roman art with goat's horns. Satyrs are described as roguish but faint-hearted folk, subversive and dangerous, yet shy and cowardly. They are lovers of wine and women, and they are ready for every physical pleasure.

Nymphs in Greek mythology are minor nature deities typically associated with a particular location or landform, mine is a tree nymph or a Dryad. Different from gods, nymphs are generally regarded as divine spirits who animate nature, and are usually depicted as beautiful, young maidens who love to dance and sing.
