You might say that this week’s Harrow card, The Marriage, is a case of opposites attract. Dominating the card are two elemental figures: a stately maiden made of water and an imposing man made of fire. Steam billows around them, though neither seem concerned about it. In-between the two is an infant in what appears to be a diving suit.
Even more so than most of the Harrow, The Marriage is not a card that should always be taken at face value. While it can and often does indicate an actual, down-the-aisle marriage between two people, it’s true meaning speaks to the joining of two forces into a new whole. This can include everything from artistic collaborations, the merging of ideas, or the merger of two businesses. The Marriage is about the joining of two to become one, no matter how concrete or abstract those two are.
