Edmonton Tarot: The Lovers (VI)
Interpretation: It is often assumed that The Lovers card simply denotes love and relationship issues. But actually, this is a card about making a difficult choice between two attractive options. Those options are often diametrically opposed. Must one option be chosen over the other or is it possible to reconcile the opposites and thereby choose both? The Lovers card is all about figuring out what your heart truly wants and then following it.
Image: This image is a detail from another epic native-themed painting by H.G. Glyde located at the University of Alberta; however, this one is mercifully free of racism. This mural depicts a loving native couple living in the midst of all the creatures of the wild. Painted in 1952, it is a visual retelling of a traditional Cree legend.
