There is a man and a woman, an angel/cupi and also two trees. One of the trees is flowering while the other tree bears fruit.
The Fool reaches a crossroad now. Initially, he had known which direction he will take and exactly what he will do. However, he reaches this crossroad which has two different paths. One of the path has a flowering tree and this is the path he had wanted to take. The other path is marked by a tree which bears fruit. A woman is standing in front of this fruit tree.
The Fool feels a very intense attraction to this woman and although the Fool had been involved in several relation ships, often with women who were much more beautiful than this woman standing in front of him, none of these women held such power of attraction over him.
The Fool feels that this woman is very different from the women he had been involved with and he feels that this woman is his soulmate and fills up a missing part of him. The sense of attraction he feels for this woman is very strong and the Fool dare not disobey his heart and decides to take the woman with him and travel down the path which is different from the one he had originally intend to take.
This card was originally named “LOVE” and i feel that this is more apt a description compared to the current name this tarot card takes. “Lovers” restricts the interpretation of this card, making may feel that reading this tarot cards involves strictly only relationships.
However, interpreting this card need not mean only love between lovers. It is more a feeling. The love for something to prompt you to take actions to acquire somwthing your heart tell you to. Yes, it can mean a person you love, but similarly, it can also mean a career you love.
This card basically advises you to follow your instinct and indicates to the Querent that he or she has come across or will come across a person or a career that he or she will fall in love with. The Querent, from instinct will know that the person or career is something worth purchasing as it fills up an empty void in their lives.
Basically, reading this card goes this way: be daring to follow something your heart tells you to, especially if that object fills up an empty part of you. Although the path may be unknown and dangerous, follow your heart as you know that you will remain incomplete without this particular object you are in love with.
Personally, reading this card is encouraging for me as it reminds me to have the courage to pursue something i like.
