The Lovers remind us to choose wisely in our day to day interactions.
Like Paris in the image of this card, we hold the agent of chaos. Every moment we are a single decision away of changing our lives forever.
The golden apple the man in this card’s image is none other than the Apple of Discord from Eris. It was given to Paris to gift to the goddess he deems to be the most beautiful. Anyone familiar with Greek mythology knows this spells trouble. Anyone familiar with this particular myth knows this is the one that launched the Trojan War.
As beings with free agency, we very much are entities of chaos. We are capable of choosing any path we like. However, the choices we make have consequences – good, bad, or unknown. Whatever choices we make, we must also live with consequences.
