Today’s Card is from the African American Tarot by Lo Scarabeo:
6 The Lovers
Love is in the air! Now, hold your horses. All love isn’t romance or at first sight. This card has a deeper meaning than how your next date will go.
The deities mentioned on this card are Adriambahomanana and Andriamahilala, the first humans in Madagascar mythology. After fulfilling their divine duties, they got to choose their own after life. Adriambahomanana chose to be a banana tree, to be reborn every spring. Andriamahilala chose to become the moon, ever in a cycle of death and rebirth.
This card also represents land, agriculture and the harvest. Adriambahomanana became a banana tree – food that sustains humans to this day. Large groves of these trees are farmed year round in the world. Andriamahilala became the moon, a visible and repeating symbol in many cultures of the spiritual energy.
At it’s core, this card is about spiritual integrity, inner balance and the attraction of opposites – in many shapes and forms. Seek out those who complement you in temperament and goals. With these new friendships and relationships you’ll find that inner balance you seek. Once this balance is attained, the Divine will find you worthy and offer you the reward you seek.
