Daily Tarot Reflection – 8 Feb 2018 – The Lovers

The Canada Goose was sacred in the Roman temples of Juno. In a chart, Juno represents your primary partner in life, the person you need in your life for your destiny to unfold. This is a contract. As Dan Savage says, there’s a price of admission for every relationship. Juno represents the price of admission you’re willing to pay in your karmic partnership. Contracts. The Price of Admission. Commitments. Devotion. This is what the Lovers Card is about. It’s a card of choice. Like my grandmother used to say, “You’ve made your bed. Now you must lie in it.” In other words – if you knew the price of admission and you were willing to pay it, don’t complain that it was too expensive. The Lovers Card is a card of choice, but it isn’t about tolerating another person or dealing with it. It’s about the return you get by paying the price. It’s about the unique and beautiful experience you receive by lying in the particular bed that you’ve made for yourself. It means that you don’t have to buy something prefab with standard pillowcases. If you’re willing to pay, you can have every tiny detail to your own specifications. Canada geese are deeply loyal. They travel thousands of miles every year. If you’re on the healing journey, the chances are good that you traverse a whole lot of terrain every year, too—at least spiritually. Is your person the kind of person who will be there no matter where you travel spiritually, how you grow? When you change and shift, can your person handle it? When the wind shifts, is your person able to navigate? Are you strong enough to be able to navigate your person’s shifts? Can you fly together? Is your bond strong enough to withstand long distances? Can you deal with the fact that sometimes reaching the final destination means periods of separation? What is the bed that would give you the best night’s sleep every night—whether your person is lying next to you or not? What is it worth to have a love that you can guarantee will always be there while allowing you to be completely and unapologetically free? Freedom ain’ free. And neither is real love. Ache. 🙏🏼
