Weekly Card The Queen of Cups

We’re meeting another regal presence from the Court Cards for the first time: the Queen of Cups. As a person, this is the one who’s first foot forward is the emotional one. S/he’s involved and connected with those around her, directly from the heart. S/he’s the one you can go to for…

Weekly Card 10 of Cups

Aah, the big rainbow of 10 of Cups . . . . We know rainbows from the biblical promise of “never again”. We’ve learnt what we needed from the deluge and don’t need that experience again as a species. Within Tarot, we know it from a reference in XIV Temperance, which we…

Weekly Card The Inspiring 4 of Cups

We’re back at the 4 of Cups. Take a look at the earlier post to refresh your memory or deepen your understanding. And then put yourself inside the New Vision image. Imagine that you’re sitting comfortably against a tree, looking out over a fairly barren landscape. You’ve got 3 emotional cups before…

Weekly Card Celebrating the 3 of Cups

Wow! We’re getting the Tarot version of 2×4 between the eyes (anybody else have that dent there from calls to pay attention?). It’s been less than a month since we last saw the 3 of Cups. So what does it mean when we repeatedly see the same message in the cards? One…

Weekly Card 2 of Cups Makes a Mess

Oh, this tea party is so wonderfully 2 of Cups! We’ve got two individuals who aren’t necessarily an immediate match sharing a portion of their individual journeys. The table between them is loaded with all sorts of good stuff as well as the mess from used up good stuff. And it’s all…

Weekly Card 4 of Cups

  4 of Cups gets a bad rap in many tarot traditions; it’s seen as the card of boredom, discontent, missed opportunities. Since creativity and emotions, the watery stuff of our lives, like to flow, the stable 4 can be seen as a dam interfering with movement. And, yes, 4 of Cups…

Weekly Card King of Cups Under Alias

What’s the deal with King of Cups? This is the second time we’ve met him and he’s still not showing up under his most traditional name. This time, it’s as the Father of Water from Joyce and Pamela Eakin’s Tarot of the Spirit. That deck uses Father, Mother, Brother and Sister instead…

Weekly Card Ace of Cups Revisited
