Lovers as a Symbol of Isis and Osiris

The endless love between Isis and Osiris is seen in the Lovers tarot card. Isis and Osiris exemplifies love, sacrifice, and resurrection.

Osiris, the god of the afterlife, was the ruler of Egypt, and his reign was characterized by prosperity and harmony. However, his brother Set harbored jealousy and resentment, leading him to conspire against Osiris. Set tricked Osiris into stepping into a beautifully crafted coffin, which he promptly sealed and threw into the Nile.

Devastated by the loss of her husband, Isis embarked on a relentless search for Osiris. Her love and determination knew no bounds. She finally discovered Osiris’s body, which had become embedded in a tree that had grown around the coffin. In an attempt to revive Osiris, Isis used her magical powers and managed to bring him back to life.

Isis and Osiris highlight the power of love, resilience, and the promise for eternal love beyond physical existence. This is also the meaning of the Lovers tarot card. Learn more about Isis and Osiris on Connolly Cove’s website here.
