One of my favorite tarot cards is Major Arcana card #6 – The Lovers. Aside from it evoking romantic images of two different beings, balanced in power, one interpretation makes it clear that the way they succeed is to respect the differences and the perfect space between. In their union, they maintain that gentle duality, that individuality, that is necessary. They need this to create the complementary nature of this card’s energy. Indeed, without it, the inertia of their union would stop, solidify and die.
Much like the value of yin and yang, balance of opposites, and physical forces of friction in the universe, a healthy relationship needs space and needs differences to keep it moving.
