Happy Valentines Day!

One of my favorite Lovers Tarot Cards.....The Tarot Art Nouveau.
Now, that is a kiss. And the roses.....surrounding this card, gifts for his true love.
She looks a bit startled by his embrace, but is that not how Love is? When it comes to you, it does startle one.

May I quote from the Prophet Kahlil Gibran? His wise words of Love....

Then said Almitra, Speak to us of Love. And he raised his head and looked upon the people, and there fell a stillness upon them.
And with a great voice, he said:
When love becKons you, you follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you, believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.
For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to you height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth....
If in your fear you would seek only love's peace and pleasure,
Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threashing floor.
When you love, you should not say, 'God is in my heart,' but rather, 'I am in the heart of God.'
And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

And Solomon.....from 'The Song of Songs,'
My lover is mine, and I am his.
Nightly he strolls in our garden,
Delighting in the flowers
Until dawn breathes its light and night slips away. 2:16

To love is so worth whatever the outcome. And the Tarot may not tell you the outcome, that is what this card is, 'Choice.' It is your choice, your dance. Join the dance, you will not regret it. Remember, it's the things you didn't take the chance on in life, you do regret. Live to Love, and Love Extravantly.....every day! In every choice.
