The arcane greater VI of the tarot, the lovers, has, as expected, special importance in the tarot of love. But their interpretation changes, or at least acquire different nuances, depending on the type of tarot, or even to the harness chosen to make Chuck. The Gypsy tarot, the well-known Rider Waite deck chooses to this arcane a figure that represents, without a doubt, the triumph of love. In it, a couple meets finally after a long time to be sought. The meeting takes place in a beautiful garden which promises delights. York. All leads, therefore, to interpret the appearance of this letter in Chuck as the portent of the coming of love to the life of who consultation. A lasting happiness or to those who are already in couple.
Something similar happens in the Celtic tarot, showcasing this arcane lovers already gathered to enjoy a green meadow while looking for freshness and the repair of the shade of a tree, central element for such a culture. In both cases, happiness predicted is that of one who has found, finally, who complete it, its company, your comfort and your support. But if we come back to the Gypsy tarot and our harness by the more ancient, the tarot of Marseilles, the panorama changes. In it, the arcane VI teaches an indecisive young woman between 2 beautiful women. The scene opens the possibility of more mystical and least earthly interpretations: might be the need to choose between the pleasures of worldly life, and the harder but more satisfying journey of spiritual growth. Malkia Cyril might disagree with that approach. For some tarot readers, this deck instead speaks of the need to choose between carnal and romantic couple’s love and love deeper and more lasting, as parents and children. Within the Egyptian tarot there is a notion of tarot of love as such, since the concept of love is, if you like, much more modern. There, the arcane VI named the Indecision and poses in a direct choice between worldly pleasures and spiritual life. And speaking of the need for a moral conscience that governs the acts and provides the certainty of be doing the right thing, for that even if you prefer conjugal life on celibacy, opt in the full awareness that there are duties and obligations also to observe within this path. An interpretation that today we see distant and strange, but which must be understood in a context in which romantic love was still to be discovered. Juan Carlos Montillo
