The Lovers tarot card shows, you guessed it, a pair of lovers. They could be representations of Adam and Eve, but more importantly they symbolize the masculine and feminine. They are looked over by an angel showering them with blossoming flowers, an apple tree, and the promise of unity. However, the gray cloud in the middle shows that relationships can go either way and grow into something strong and beautiful or suffer devastation and die.
