Wildwood COTD : #6, The Forest Lovers

Today’s Card of the Day is one of the Majors, the Forest Lovers.

The Forest Lovers
The Forest Lovers - Robin & Marion

As you can see from the picture, it shows a couple in a forest, wrapped around a silver birch tree, hand-fasting themselves to each other, their hands across their chests, promising what they’re promising.

What does this have to do with us today, since its a Major? I feel its about loving ourselves, loving each other and keeping promises that have been made, despite any issues or troubles with having to do that. If you cannot keep a promise, do not make it.

But this card also says: Work at it. You don’t get married one day and then act like you’re not married the following day. Remember to respect yourself and your chosen partner (whichever gender they are) and their wishes, as well as your own. This also hints at the polar balance of the soul: both must be equal in order for the soul to be whole.

So, what are you doing today to keep your soul balanced?
