The important figures here are the man and woman. Naked and beautiful and drawn to each other. The word that comes to my mind when I see this card is*magnetic*. Have you ever looked at someone and immediately felt your heart drop into your shoes? Have you ever felt so compelled to touch someone that you had to physically restrain yourself from doing so? Have you ever been unable to break eye contact, but not sure why? You just grin and accept the fact that your life is going to change.
The Tarot MixTape selection for the Lovers is “Why Can’t I Be You?” by the Cure. Because the Lovers, however romantic, is SO FREAKING INTENSE, that if the gaze of one slips, things go badly wrong very quickly.
