The Card: A man and a woman are each holding their cup with one hand, touching each others hands with the other. She wears blue like the sky, he wears yellow like the ground. Above them is the winged lion, between them 2 serpents intertwining around a staff. A green hill with a house and trees is seen behind them.
Interpretation: It looks like a union is going on here. Both the man and the woman are each bringing their share, their cup, into the relationship / connection. They are coming together with some experience, deliberately probing each others hands, testing what is there. Their expressions are neutral and observing.
The winged lion above them, symbolises strength, courage, power, wisdom and spirit. As a union of the lord of the animals and the lord of the birds, an extremely powerful being. Thus the union of the 2 people is strong. The wings, the staff and 2 serpents can also be seen together as a Caduceus: The winged staff of Hermes, messenger between gods and humans, and a guide to the lower world. Also a symbol of medicine, the otherwise poisonous snakes are here in balance.
The picture is nearly symmetric down the middle. The 2 people are mirroring each other, seeing in the other, what is in them selves. Giving them the chance to heal what needs healing; their relationship together is a healing journey. They are greatly empowered by snakes, staff and lion. They are ready to live together in the beautiful house behind them, not needing to go anywhere, it is an inner journey.
Prediction: Some maturity has been reached, I know what I am doing. From this point I am in / enter relations with purpose, purpose of becoming more conscious. I approach with caution, but openly and aware. I'm well on my way, doing the needed, knowing the love is the strongest healer, unconditional love. There is courage, because I know there is nothing to loose.
Keywords: Unconditional Love, relationship, experience, the healing journey, settling down, the mirroring principle, receiving the power of the spirit to help the process.
