GEMINI - The Twins - May 21-June 21 Welcome Gemini, to the Tarot card that embodies your dual nature and desire for communication – The Lovers card!

The Lovers card is usually illustrated with a picture of a couple. They are often pictured at their wedding. In some cards, the angel Raphel hovers above the pair. The symbol of two separate entities that are also somehow united is the clue that lets us know this card belongs to Gemini.

It makes sense that Gemini and the Lovers are closely related. Your adaptability, curiosity, and changeability are all represented by the Lovers card. Symbols of your clear communication style and notorious ability to see at least two sides to every situation are woven into the imagery of the card.

Geminis are natural detectives, and they love to gather information. I suspect that you are ready to comb through all the details and find out how The Lovers card relates to your sign and how you can use this information to your benefit.

Why This Pairing Makes Sense

Gemini, your sign is often represented by a picture of Twins, representing your dual nature and the conflicting traits that are constantly at play within you. You are a chameleon, able to adapt and blend into any setting. You are deeply inquisitive and are driven to seek out the answer to any question that occurs to you.  You have so many interests, hobbies, and friends they often come into conflict. A naturally skilled communicator, you can tailor your messages to suit your audiences. This skill can make you very persuasive, but you must keep it in check. If you don’t, your careful communication could stray into the realm of lies and information hoarding. The Lovers card is a symbol of the union of opposites and the perfect balance of conflicting forces, which makes it an ideal companion for you.

Your ever-restless mind leads you, Gemini. You are driven by curiosity. There is a constant urge to uncover new information and discover why or how things happened. This trait pushes you to explore a variety of topics and engage in conversation with anyone who will talk to you. Though small talk is fine, you prefer deeper, more meaningful conversations. The free flow of ideas motivates and inspires you. If conversation isn’t on the menu, you are comfortable switching into research mode. You scamper through reference materials with nimble ease, and you find it easy to weave the information you discover into a coherent narrative. The Lovers card illustrates not only subtle yet healthy communication between partners but also communication between the conscious mind and intuition.  It illustrates the integration of both worlds to achieve complete understanding.

The only thing that exceeds a Gemini’s fast talking is their fast thinking. You are a fount of facts and ideas, and you love sharing them with others. Unsatisfied with just collecting information, a Gemini will work to find commonalities in the facts and opinions of sometimes extremely opposite viewpoints. A persuasive Gemini is the perfect choice for convincing people to get along to get a job done. However, your lack of patience is often your downfall. Your preference for doing everything at lightning speed can be off putting to others, especially people who like to linger over their decision making. The Lovers card is a reminder that although Geminis have to reconcile the opposing forces within, they also must reconcile with the external forces that oppose them.

The Lovers Card and Your Strengths

When people throw a party, they often hope their Gemini friend arrives first. You are an expert at navigating any social scene. It’s not only that you feel comfortable in many different settings, but you are also an expert at helping others to feel just as comfortable. You can captivate others with rapid-fire conversation on a variety of topics. If you meet an expert on a subject, you will make the effort to draw them out with delighted questions. Your ability to generate interest in just about anything puts people at their ease and allows them to shine. Rarely at a loss for words, you can naturally fill in awkward silences and keep the flow of conversation going.

Gemini, your restless mind and hunger for information fuels your mental gymnastics. Never ending curiosity draws you from subject to subject. You prioritize learning in both formal and informal settings. You can easily teach others and often find yourself slipping into the role of a teacher when interacting with friends and family.

Naturally skilled at critical thinking, you can pick apart an argument and determine if it stands on its own merits.

An exploration of the Lovers card can help you discover ways to enhance your natural strengths. The Lovers are a representation of a joyous union of opposites. They are two halves of a whole that work much better together than they would separately. Despite being reflections of each other, they are not the same. Yet each compliments the other perfectly and confidently relies on the other’s strengths. Though you are used to getting the two sides of your nature to work together, it is important to learn how to externalize this process so that you can find your external other half. Too often, Geminis are tempted to do it all themselves without allowing themselves to confide in or rely upon others. Turn your critical and discerning eye upon your own nature and allow others to see past your social butterfly image.

Perfect making internal and external unions to fan your mental flames and drive you to greater understanding.

The Lovers Card (Reversed) and Your Weaknesses

Dearest Gemini, your constant need for motion and activity often drowns out your internal voice. Though you can probe others and discover their secrets, there are times when you are a total mystery to yourself. Until you take the time to examine yourself just as thoroughly as you would a new favorite topic, it will be difficult for you to identify the areas of your life that require the most work.

Impatience and a ceaseless drive to never miss out on anything could be causing you to miss more than you realize. Your inability to wait for an outcome to fully develop might end opportunities before they can even begin. Your insistence on getting everything done now can be perceived as overbearing, especially when you snatch work from someone’s hands when they aren’t doing it quickly enough to satisfy you.

Though communication is central to your very being, if you lose awareness of yourself, you could find yourself lying or omitting the truth to get your point across. In fact, there might be times when you yourself find it difficult to distinguish between your truth and lies. Since you are a fast thinker, you are dangerous in an argument. You can verbally run circles around others, and if your temper gets out of hand your words can turn vicious.

When the Lovers are inverted, they represent a lack of balance and proportion. Utter disharmony reigns supreme. There are quarrels, accusations, and destructive things are said. Gossip can be turned into a weapon and compliments are suddenly barbed and backhanded. Communication breaks down and misunderstandings arise. Your silver tongue becomes a tool for escaping responsibility, or worse, a weapon.

There is a chance that the reversed Lovers card is pointing out where communication is breaking down, where trust is being lost, and where a union might be broken. It is warning you of the danger of angry or destructive words being spoken. A loss of patience may be contributing to the difficulties at hand. The first step to correcting the situation is to reestablish the balance between opposing forces and clear the channels of communication. Talking things out in a healthy way might require you to set aside your overpowered communication skills.  But it will be worth it when it allows you to restore balance and harmony.

The Lovers Card and Problem Solving

When a problem appears, you want to put it under a microscope, Gemini. You want to find out as much information as possible to inform the plan you will eventually make. Your hunger for knowledge will encourage you to seek out every expert you can find and shamelessly pick their brains. You know that there are facts out there somewhere that will lead to the solution. The Lovers card reminds you to engage your heart as well as your head when seeking a solution. Never forget that your card is about the union of opposites, which can only happen when the opposite forces are equally balanced. There are times when more than facts are required to discover the best solution.

If your friends have a problem that involves a disagreement with someone, you might be the first person they turn to. They have faith in not only your ability to analyze a situation objectively, but to construct a counter argument that is unassailable. You may not be the most sympathetic listener, since you are tempted to jump right into problem solving. But they appreciate the logic and insight you can bring to the discussion. The Lovers card is your roadmap for helping others think through their problems. The male figure/conscious mind looks to the female/subconscious mind. Meanwhile the female is focused on the angel/world of spirit. This is an illustration of the three worlds working in harmony.

When you are working through a problem, it is important to recognize that all three levels of problem solving are important: physical, mental, and spiritual. Then you must put your impatience to rest and allow others to work at their own pace. If you are working with someone else to solve a problem, you might find yourself tapping your foot impatiently, waiting for them to catch up to what you have already figured out. Don’t allow your need for speed to make someone else uncomfortable while finding a solution. Orient yourself in the here-and-now and focus on the problem at hand.

The Lovers Card and Your Work Life

You are naturally drawn to careers in which you can manage, maintain, and distribute information. Your love of being in the know, or being considered an expert in a topic may lead you to be a researcher, investigator, or librarian. Though it may sound dramatic, Geminis do make outstanding private detectives. Your drive to share information with others could direct you into teaching, counseling, or working with children. Your outgoing personality could be a pathway to being a party planner, actor, or personal assistant. Of course, you could also turn your mind to a career in data analysis or statistics.

Whichever path you choose, the Lovers card and what it symbolizes can provide you with sound advice for success. Though the primary meaning of the Lovers card is union, it also represents discernment and decision making. Develop the ability to make well-reasoned decisions and back them up with facts. Understand how to tell the difference between situations that require diplomacy and those that require outright disagreement. Employ your observation skills and your understanding of human nature so that you can correctly assess and understand the people you work with. And no matter what your role, don’t be surprised if you are the central hub for gossip and information in your workplace.

The Lovers and Your Relationships

Gemini, you are often a sparkling jewel in your social scene, whether you want to be or not. Your appreciation of others’ interests and the way you can encourage people to talk about themselves make you a welcome addition to any gathering. On the rare occasions in which you don’t want to be the center of attention, you must make an effort to step out of the spotlight. Your loyalty is beyond compare and you make friends for life.

If you are seeking out close friends or romantic companions, it is best to look for someone who can keep up with you. You like to talk a lot, think a lot, and are constantly on the move. Someone with a high energy level and love for spontaneity will find you captivating. Everyone else may find you a little bit exhausting. When it comes to friends, you feel most comfortable with a wide social circle that intersects with many different interest groups and walks of life. You find friends wherever you go.

The Lover Card’s  Guidance

Imagine yourself in the Lover’s card to understand which side of your dual nature is taking precedence. This will help you to find balance. When you are working through a situation, take a moment or two to do the following.

In a quiet moment, take a few deep breaths to prepare yourself for introspection. Focus on the situation at hand and then picture yourself appearing in the Lover’s card. In what role do you appear? The Angel providing overseeing intelligence and information from the spirit world? The woman in tune to her subconscious and open to messages from the physical and spiritual worlds? The man who is actively seeking an answer on a material level? Or you may even find yourself as the priest, observing and conducting the ceremony. Use this insight to assess your contribution to current events.
