The card represents you finding balance within yourself and understanding yourself and your values better. You can expect harmony and balance in your life! 

You might feel uncertain about situations, people, or the direction of your life. This is normal and you should take some time to gather all the necessary information and facts before you make your decision. 

Now that we have looked at the general meaning of the card, let’s move on to look at the possible meanings in closer detail!

Love And Relationships

Regardless of your relationship status, the upright Lovers card is one of the best to get! It is a soulmate card signifying an intense bond between two people, wonderful news for anyone in a relationship!

If you are single, the card suggests love is on its way! This love will be a deep connection where you will experience an intense attraction, sexual passion, and romance. 

If you are in a relationship, the card suggests romance will be rekindled in your relationship and that the bond you share will become deeper than before!

The card indicates you and your partner have an emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual connection others would kill for! 


The Lovers Tarot card can suggest you have the right support to help you through any health issues you might be experiencing. This support could come from a healthcare provider, doctor, or partner. 

The card can also suggest you have some decisions to make concerning treatment courses or plans.

The upright Lovers card also suggests heart health, so be sure to take care of yourself and seek medical advice if you have any concerns. 

Money And Career 

The Lovers Tarot card suggests a business partnership between two people. The card indicates a positive partnership that is benefitting both people.

You can expect you and your business partner to be on the same wavelength and will continue to work well and support one another. 

The card also suggests the possibility of you becoming involved with a work colleague. We recommend taking caution here, as mixing work with romance doesn’t often end well.

You will need to be prepared for any consequences. 

The Lovers Tarot card also implies you have a decision to make about your career. It might seem like the choices you have aren’t great, but that isn’t true! Take some time to consider all the facts and you should be able to make the right decision for yourself.

While the opportunity might not seem like something you want to do now, it could pay off in the long run. 

Financially, now is a good time to seek out financial opportunities. There is a good chance you will reap the rewards soon!


Spiritually, the upright Lovers card suggests you are starting to find harmony within yourself. As we mentioned earlier when discussing the general meaning, you are starting to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your morale code.

The understanding you have can lead to a deeper connection to your spiritual self, which we all crave! 

The card also suggests you might enjoy partnering up on your spiritual journey. Attending a meditation class with a friend that shares your values and goals is a good place to start, and you will be surprised at the emotional benefits this can bring you! 

Reversed Lovers Tarot Card General Meaning 

The reversed Lovers Tarot card has a slightly different meaning than the upright card, let’s take a look at its general meaning now! The card can suggest you are struggling to take ownership of your decisions which is causing some inner conflict.

This could manifest as uncertainty in the direction of your life.

You need to remember that you are in control of your life and destiny. If you are unhappy with your current situation, blaming the universe isn’t going to change anything, especially if your current situation was caused by decisions you have made! 

Take accountability for your actions and learn from them. By doing this, you can move forward in the direction you want. Doing so will also help you develop a better understanding of who you are, what you believe in, and your values.

This will help you prevent making these mistakes again. 

Love And Relationships

The reversed Lovers Tarot card suggests that you and your partner might not be on the same page. The sexual aspect of your relationship might be on track, but other aspects of your relationship might need more work.

Make sure that you sit down with your partner to discuss this and seek solutions where possible. 

It could also suggest that either you or your partner is more emotionally invested in the relationship than the other. There could be trust or fear issues that are preventing one of you from fully jumping into the relationship.

Be sure to have an open conversation to address this so you can move forward and allow your relationship to flourish in the future. 

The reversed Lovers card can also suggest that you might not feel as connected in your relationship as you used to. There will be supporting cards in your reading that you can look to here to identify the root cause of these feelings. 

If you are single, the reversed card can suggest a relationship is coming your way, but not in the way you hoped it would! The card can also represent that you are selecting partners for the wrong reasons.

If you are about to get involved with someone, make sure you are connecting with them in more than one way. A sexual connection is great, but you need more than that for your relationship to be successful. 


Health-wise, the reversed Lovers card suggests you need to reconnect with how your body is feeling to help bring harmony and health to your life. It is possible you feel like your body is working against you.

Take time here to be kind to your body and work within your energy levels. 

Your body is capable of so many wonderful things, but to do these things, it needs rest. So be sure to allow your body the time it needs to heal. 

Money And Career 

The reversed Lovers Tarot card suggests disharmony in a business deal. Make sure to communicate with your business partner to ensure you are on the same page about any business decisions you need to make. 

Like the upright card, the reversed Lovers can suggest romance at work, but with a warning. This workplace romance could risk your career, so make sure to take care.

Are you prepared to deal with the consequences of this relationship? If the answer is no, then it’s best to avoid the relationship. 

Financially, the card can represent financial irresponsibility. You might be making irrational and impulsive decisions with your money.

You could be too focused on materialistic items and are looking for gratification from material items, rather than life itself. You need to be accountable for the choices you are making here and learn from any past financial mistakes. 


Spiritually, The Lovers reversed means you have been focusing solely on materialistic goals that will bring you temporary happiness, rather than long-term harmony and joy in your life.

You should look to focus more on the spiritual side of your life to bring you long-term joy and discover the true you. 

The card can also suggest a sexual attraction between you and a spiritual advisor. If they are looking for an intimate relationship with you, it is likely for the wrong reasons!

They are abusing their power and should not be dating you. Take care here, this person is meant to guide you on your spiritual path and not have an ulterior motive! 

Final Thoughts 

And there you have it, all the possible meanings The Lovers Tarot card has! Whether you are looking for guidance in your love life, personal, or spiritual life, we are sure you will have found the answers you are looking for today!
