Union, balance, energy, flow, passion, melding of heart and mind, forming a union or marriage. Though it can be romantic in nature, it is not necessarily so. The lovers is also about determining values and struggling with choices -- the innocence embodied in the turtledoves is a contrast to the shiny red apple in the embrace of the snake, one of the oldest symbols of temptation.
OK so it doesn't have to be all about the luuurve thang ♥ Today you can focus on a romantic relationship if you want to, if you need a bit of a boost, but you can also use the energy of today's card to work on other relationships - friendships, parents, children, siblings or even on a business partnership that needs some help. Mending bridges, crossing chasms...bringing things and people together. Or...focus on bringing about balance within yourself.
Candle spell for union
Use a pink or red candle for this (or as always go with your intuition...or what you have in the cupboard, white candles are always good back ups as they cover everything).
Sprinkle a few rose petals around the base if you have them or just a sprinkling of cinnamon will work too. A piece of rose quartz is useful to place by the candle if you have some.
Light the candle and then visualise the union or coming together between those that need it, bringing peace, harmony and balance.
When you are ready give thanks, but leave the candle to burn out (safely).
