Second Operation of the Opening of the Key Spread finds My significator in the Fifth House (no surprise) and the final card (13) is The Lovers, VI. The central card represents the overall influences of the year (and a year in My life is from one name day to the next).
VI – The Lovers
Venus and Mars – on a higher level Sun and Moon – as the combination of the contrasts
Tree of life: From Binah to Tiphareth
Number: 6 as combinantion of contrasts and their mutual penetration
The Lovers are one of the most complex cards in the Major Arcana, standing for the love in common and the alchemy of the universe. The trump represents the power of life, the creative love, which can be quite impressive, but also destructive when one happens to disregard the fire of instinct, burning down rationalism.
The card also represents a decision, the farewell to a former way of life and the full acceptance of love uncompromising. It doesn’t necessarily mean that the ‘love’ is a person that you tie your knots to with fancy tungsten wedding bands – it can be a passion, a desire, or even a profession, like going to sea or working with horses. Many people who lead an adapted, settled life actually have deep desires and hidden wishes, that they don’t dare show, that they constantly fight back, surpressing their own happiness.
The Lovers can mean that someone should be honest, make a clear decision for this love, the fulfilling of a wish, of a desire, and stand by it.
Apart from this, the Lovers can say that a peaceful combination of existing contrasts or contradictions is a better solution than any confrontation – diplomacy instead of war.
I was reading My journal today. Although I have tried to communicate virtually everything here, I had a journal for My bike trip across the country and always have something to keep notes in. Today I just happened to stumble across My ‘eureka’ moment. I came across the entry where I finally concluded that the Cestui Que Vie ‘thesis’ I had come up with was in fact the document I was going to use. I had a vision of how the document should look more than what it should say. I actually came up with the document on May 5th, 2016 but hadn’t decided quite how I was going to put it together until Nov. 30th of the same year.
The most exciting thing about it was the enthusiasm of the entry, the surety of it. I declared in My personal Writing that I had finally created the document that would heal the world. I just finished Writing a story about a Princess, talked about how the knowledge of Self Love would need to return to Earth for the world to know peace, to save the damsel in distress. Now I show You that the Universe is telling Me that the theme for the next four weeks is The Lovers, the combination of contrasts and their mutual penetration. No coincidences.
There are also seven cards in the fifth house, seven is the number for heaven. To save time and space, I am going to skip the counting and jump right to the pairing of the seven cards and let You check the associations Your Self if You are inclined to do so.
