Herbal Tarot - VI - Lovers - Parsley

Soaring Eagle

To see the major arcana cards in Contellation 6.

Description: A man and a woman are naked while holding hands with their backs to us. The woman is pointing to a ray of sunshine that is coming from the clouds while the man looks at the woman. There is a large river in front of them, and distant mountains in the background.

Significant Details: The ray of sunlight appears divine. The parsley is a reminder to form a solid foundation (roots).

Keywords: Choice, Relationships, Love, Union of opposites, Setting of roots

Medicinal Uses: “In European folklore, parsley’s lengthy germination period fostered the belief that, before the plant would grow, its roots had to go down to the devil seven times.” American Nature Guides Herbs by Anna Kruger

My Interpretation: You may be facing a difficult choice, or a joining of opposite ideas. You may experience a new love or relationship during this time. This is a time to set your roots, form a bonding relationship.

Number Significance: The Lovers are in Constellation 6 with XV Pan, and the Sixes. Attraction and Division, Synergy and Separation, Exchange, Sharing and Relating, Reciprocity, Vitality, Sensuality, Connectedness, Ability to Discriminate between Good and Evil, Temptation, Obsession

Thoughts/Points to Ponder: What is the man thinking while looking at the woman? He seems determined to have his way, even though the woman is easily distracted by the ray of sunlight.
