The Lovers can sometimes indicate a choice, rather than an interpretation regarding love. I don't usually see the "choice" interpretation in my readings, but today it was clear this was what it meant for me. The Lovers stands in the middle of two very different feeling cards, illustrating two choices I can make. Do I spend the day focusing on happiness and joy found with my family (Ten of Cups), or do I give in to worry that sometimes tries to creep in (Nine of Swords)? Last night I had a few bad dreams, which doesn't happen very often. That's another thing I saw in the Nine of Swords. A warning not to dwell on the negative, instead choosing to be happy no matter what today.
It was a good day. There were a few hiccups in the form of negative energy offered by surrounding people, but thanks to the cards' warning this morning, I was conscious enough to keep the negativity from affecting me and changing my mood to match. I didn't let it penetrate my happiness bubble. I chose to remain happy.
I love this quote by Abraham Lincoln: "Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." I took that thought to heart today, and it certainly did me good!
