It’s been a while, but I decided finally to put up the Lovers. It got done a little while ago, and as usual there were some cool astro-synchronicities in play. The new moon in Gemini and the eclipses on the Gemini/Sag axis were happening, appropriate as the Lovers is the trump of Gemini. Also we had the Venus/Sun conjunction. The female character in the Lovers is the Empress – the card of Venus. The male character of course then is the Emperor – the card of Aries, which is a sign of dignity for the Sun. A Sun/Venus conjunction seems very much aligned to the meetup of these male and female archetypes.
I couldn’t help but think of certain suggestive lyrics in Led Zeppelin’s Black Dog while painting this!
