So heavy is the chain of wedlock that it needs two to carry it, and sometimes three. —Alexandre Dumas

Symbolon Card is The Two Faces of Eve – Keyword is Partner and Lover
You may feel like torn between the partner and the lover roles in you. You feel a powerful need to satisfy them both. Having an affair always comes with guilt. Try to figure out why you need two persons in your heart instead of one to satisfy both roles. You are finding yourself in the middle of a timeless dilemma. According to the Middle-Age Judaic biblical commentary titled the “Alphabet of Ben-Sira”, Adam had a wife before Eve and her name was Lilith. In a nutshell, Lilith wanted to be his equal, he disagreed, they fought and she left. Her departure then opened the door for Eve the helpmate. So, there are two archetypes in every woman (Eve the life partner and Lilith the lover) and their counterpart roles in every man. Both roles are essential for human specie continuation. The need of a third person to satisfy both archetypes originates in the fact that Eve was put on a pedestal in the light of the day while Lilith was devalued into the darkness of the night. Would the Judeo-Christian culture revere equally Eve and Lilith, every couple would satisfy both archetypes with the same person. Affairs are cultural dilemmas of immemorial times. It is easier to satisfy both archetypes with one person.
