In my misspent youth I worked for a number of years as a waitress. One of the perks of the job was observing interactions between couples, and how over a long period of time together they even begin to resemble each other.
I'm reminded by this card any relationship worth it's salt is a blending, some compromise, and great respect for the differences that bring us together in the first place.

Tarot opened previously closed doors to my own heart with it's merciless quest for the truth, nothing but the truth. They flay the soul and make me say thank you afterward. Each hour spent with my cards is a new lesson to be learned. Viva la Journey.
