The Partner

- meaning of Symbolon card and archetype -

the other person as a mirror, relationship, equality, balance, the perfect partnership, "the better half"
Interpretation of the card:
This is the only card in the Major Arcana that depicts not one, but two people: the human and their other side, husband and wife. If you are a man, you primarily seek your other side through a woman. If you are a woman, the opposite applies. In the picture, the two are depicted dancing around each other, happy to have found each other and fallen in love. This representation of love is romantic in nature, but it's important to remember that the dance cannot last forever, as it has already been decided by the gods. For now, both are in harmony, seeing themselves in the face of the other.

The meaning of the Partner Symbolon card
1) As a single or first card The problem
At this moment, you are not ready to look into the mirror that the other person is holding up to you and recognize yourself in it. This card serves as a reminder that you are closing yourself off from the other person and assuming that they have ill intentions, rather than accepting the message they are trying to convey. You are failing to see that the other person is simply reflecting your own differences back to you.
​​​​​​​2) As the next cardWay through the problem
The path towards understanding yourself requires learning through others. To achieve this, you must engage with others and strive for mutual understanding. You cannot reach your goal on your own. It is imperative that you encounter individuals on your journey who can open your eyes to new perspectives.
3) as the last card︱​​​​​​​Result
You have re-discovered yourself in the other person and are now in a state of balance and harmony with both your external and internal partners. The "Symbolon" is complete again, and the different parts have come back together.
