Exploring The Lover Archetype


What does it mean to be a Lover? When you hear “Lover,” what comes up for you? Is it romantic love with another? Is it loving yourself? What does it actually mean? Let’s explore The Lover Archetype as outlined on InnerSpark’s Wheel of The Mother and how and why to work with this aspect of yourself for passion, creativity, and joy!

Overview of Lover Archetype

InnerSpark’s Wheel of The Mother represents the eight cosmic archetypes of creation as literally mirrored to us through the eight seasons on Earth. Each of the four main seasons (winter, spring, summer, fall) has a little sub-season making for eight total seasons. Each of these eight frequencies has a very specific feel, invitation, energy, offering. You can learn more about them on the website.

Today we’re getting into The Lover Archetype, which corresponds with late spring or Beltane. Through working with The Lover Archetype, we become one with the orgasmic current of life flowing through us. We’re connected to potentiality and alchemy, that is of two becoming a third, of uniting polarities.

The Lover is all about the fire of our passions, of being alive, of recognizing and remembering our power and the potential for alchemy.

It’s all about our devotion and compassion to life, to love, to service, to being embodied in this lifetime. It’s inextricably connected with our sensuality.

“I embrace my innocence, my natural erotic essence, and shamelessly receive the pleasure and joy that are my birthright. I am eros and embrace fully the sweet orgasmic current of life and its full spectrum. My curiosity, innocence, and tenderness guide my explorations and evolution along my spiral journey.”
