What do the Lovers and Devil cards mean?
Today’s pithy Tarot meaning provides a comparison between Heaven and Hell (and a way to escape the latter and travel to the former). It relates to the Lovers and Devil cards, which, in the RWS deck, bear a remarkable similarity to each other. This pithy meaning is an explanation for that resemblance.
“Whenever we manage to love without expectations,
calculations, or negotiations, we are indeed in Heaven.
Whenever we fight and hate, we are in Hell.” — Rumi
.PS: Note the belly buttons (and lack thereof) in these two cards. This also symbolizes the fact that we are our purest, most spiritual selves when we love, and we are our base, material selves when we hate.
