From the description of Lovers in P.F. Case's Tarot: A Key to the Wisdom of the Ages

"Our version is essentially the same as Dr. Waite's, and both are based on the unpublished esoteric Tarot. We have been at some pains to clarify certain minor obscurities, but otherwise the symbolism is the same... The angel is Raphael, angel of air, the element attributed to Gemini, and in the symbolism of the Roman Church, the particular angel of the planet Mercury. He is also the great archangel of the eastern quarter of the heavens."

The unpublished esoteric deck most likely refers to the deck by Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and all these attributions sound like GD ones.
