Sixth Month of the Year: The Lovers
The entire month of June is influenced by the number 6 (Venus), as it is the number of the month. The number six card in the Major Arcana of the Tarot is The Lovers.
This month we enter the Summer season and the time to heal, play, laugh, and enjoy life to its fullest. We are tested to see how we allow ourselves to Love and be Loved, and how we appreciate the beauty that life offers us daily. Venus is the planet of play, romance, and artistic expression. It is the ability to be pampered, to take breaks for self-care, and to enjoy this life experience. When we take ourselves too seriously, we lose the joy in living and forget why we are here in the first place, as life is meant to be enjoyed.
The Lovers archetype teaches the balance between the conscious mind, the subconscious heart, and the superconscious spirit. When we are able to honor these aspects within, we can manifest a stronger sense of harmony in our physical lives. It is the overemphasis of just one of these three characteristics that throws off our center of balance in life. When we can bring the mind, heart, and soul together, there is nothing that cannot be achieved. This month will test us to see if we are living a reality of harmony or if we need to take more time in one area to create balance. Allow pampering, Light-hearted play, laughter, and fun to have space to expand in June. Remember that all work and no play makes for an unhappy day. Successful people Love what they do and do what they Love. Where can you bring more Love and harmony into your life? This month is a great opportunity to find your center and take initiative in creating that equilibrium.
