- Every phenomenon of the phenomenal world has its complementary opposite, an in this, its annulment. EVERYTHING, except for the Winged-Egg, which is not a phenomenon of the phenomenal world, but which lies in its core – being its root. “…But there is that which remains.”

The Lovers card feels like divisions and mirrors between Self and Other, Inside and Outside, Subject and Object. The sword (Zain) dividing the unity into opposite twins (Gemini).
One revelation was: The extent to which we can love determines the extent to which we can experience being loved.
Psychologically, this is about projection. We make the mistake of looking into a mirror, and imagining that the reflection is not caused by us. We split ourselves in half, and pick a side.
