Love Story (#4)

I am the one who... believes in the alchemy of love.

Core meaning: Love is more than the sum of its parts.

This card is about Alchemy.  I almost called it "I'm a believer" - because I do believe that one can be transformed by love - the frog turned into a prince.  Spirit, for me, is always represented by water, so the two streams of water pouring onto the frog (which as an animal lives in both the spirit/water and the everyday/earth worlds) represents not only a pairing, but the 'juice' that powers the transformation.  They are the spirit pair that come together to create love.

Love has the innate ability to look past the human and see the godly. ~ Colette Burnham

Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby.  But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand. ~ Margery Williams, "The Velveteen Rabbit"
