The angel that protects the Lovers from above represents the higher octave of their earthly lust symbolized by the snake. This refinement represents true love. To be more specific, he is Raphael, the angel of Air, a primordial element associated with the intellect and communication. No wonder this card usually indicates romantic partnerships. However, it can also point to your inner male/female duality. The mountain is a metaphor for the masculine energy while the water stands for the feminine one. The Lovers are also the embodiment of perfection, harmony and reciprocity.

Work: If this card appears in your reading, it means that you're ambivalent about your current job. Or maybe you're facing quite a difficult work-related decision. Check your facts and figures thoroughly before you make a choice. Now isn't the time to mix business with romance.

Love: If you're in a relationship, you might realize that your partner is your soulmate. Either that or you'll start a new chapter together. If you're single, you're closer than ever to finding your better half. Or maybe you'll rekindle an old flame. Either way, the future looks bright.

Astro Tips & Tricks

When Mercury is retrograde, it's advisable that you pay more attention to both the verbal and nonverbal messages that you send. Differences of opinion may arise when you least expect it. If you're willing to listen to what the other person has to say and you're careful not to say things that can be misinterpreted, there's a good chance that something good will eventually come of any disagreement.
