Drawn face up:
The Lovers card drawn face-up is a sign of hesitation. The consultant undoubtedly finds themselves in an uncertain situation; they don't know where they're going and don't yet dare to make any choices. They have to choose a path, and the choice they make will have repurcussions on their future. To properly interpret the meaning of this card, the other cards drawn need to be taken into consideration, as they will be determining factors. The Lovers is a passive card, which symbolises waiting, or a desire that is as yet ill-defined, or not concrete in reality.
Its meaning: A choice to be made, free will, desire, love, emotions, aesthetic art, reflection.
The Lovers card drawn upside-down shows that the consultant needs to make a painful choice, and that they are choosing the wrong path. They are looking for the easy way out and not taking everything into consideration. They are caught in a trap. The card can also signify an encounter with a harmful person, who should be avoided at all costs, or else they risk suffering a great deal. If the person gives into temptation, they won't make any progress.
Its meaning: Temptation, a trap, seduction, lust, selfishness, separation, bad encounters, infidelity.
