There's an overarching theme of harmony between two people in this card: it depicts a ceremonal exchange, and sense of give-and-take that is required to sustain meaningful relationships.

When this card comes up for you, it's an invitation to reflect on the relationships yo have, and the ones that you want to have; to commit to deepening relationships with people who really get you, and who are willing to do the work to find harmony with you. And of course, it's a prompt to commit to living out these values in your relationships yourself.
