On The Lovers Wild Unknown Tarot, we can see a pair of geese flying in unison. There is harmony in their parallel wingspans, necks, and black and white colors on their stripes. Although they maintain their separate identities, they also get along naturally as a couple. This card gives us a feeling that everything is exactly how it is. The geese make a lot of effort when flying high as they don’t flap their wings wildly, they simply let the wind carry them. This is a card of fluidity, ease, and grace. People in love are not trying to impress each other nor are they trying to be anything other than what they are. They value each other as individuals, and they value their unique perspectives even as they cherish the connection they share.
In many depictions of The Lovers, the two characters face each other. However, in The Lovers Wild Unknown Tarot, both geese are facing forward. There is a strong symbolism here as they are on a journey together with no further doubt. But at the same time, each goes their separate ways. Once again, the use of lines in Wild Unknown is emphasized. In the previous card, we saw static vertical lines. In The Lovers, we have radiation lines, which give the card expanding energy. This is the first card with significant differences in the first and second versions of this deck. In the first edition, the background is teal and dark green, the color represents serenity and peace.
In the second edition, as pictured above, the background is splashed with all the colors of the rainbow. The presence of all the colors here evokes radiant and passionate energy. This is reminiscent of the bold colored flashes we saw in The Magician, but there are slight differences. In The Magician, the rays of light are emitted from a point outside the center while in The Lovers, the point is directly above the geese and in the center of the card, indicating equilibrium.
All the design elements come together to convey a message of harmony, ease, and unity. Two wild geese as life partners, together in the vast sky. The Lovers Wild Unknown Tarot is a welcome sign in any reading, indicating a very beautiful and very strong relationship. You will experience all the vibrations of longing and romance, but in the meantime, you still have to build a solid foundation together. The Lovers cherish and respect each other and with that, they can go anywhere. If you are ready for a relationship, now is the time to be grateful and cherish this rare and precious gem.
