The rain pouring down from the storm clouds in the Three of Swords turns into the spiritual alchemy flowing between the Temperance angel’s golden chalices. The hurt was piercing and painful to the core. There seemed to be no way out of the darkness. Wisdom worlds advise taking a step back, cooling the emotions and seeking balance. Stay grounded as you allow the waters of intuition to wash away the hurt. Soon you will take back your power and you will understand the sublime value of forgiveness.
A king wearing flowing robes sits upon an upholstered throne with luxurious rounded edges. The curves of the throne correspond to the flowing emotions of this ruler’s heart. He holds a scepter (power) in one hand and a golden cup (emotions) in the other. His throne is perfectly balanced on the wavy sea where ships and fish appear in the distance. This week an older man of authority (boss, father, teacher) will show you the value of ruling with the information gained from the heart. Or perhaps you will bring this emotional intelligence into your own way of handling your affairs. The egg harkens to the mystery of new beginnings and the frog reminds us how to live in and out of the water so we never become completely submerged.
Are your emotions getting the better of you? Do you feel you are not in control of your actions? This King of Cups Reversed is here to encourage you to use emotional intelligence this week. And you will have plenty of opportunity to do so. Remember, we are in the thick of holiday season and there’s a lot of shtuff going around. Kings are rulers with authority gained from experience. Cups are emotions and relationships. This king has control of his emotions and rules with compassion and heart. However when the heart flow is blocked this king will act very badly and use his great gifts of spirit to manipulate and control the situation negatively. This week step back and resist reactive behavior. Seek to understand why you are feeling your feelings before you act out on them. You will return to balance and ride the waves of emotions with aplomb just like the King of Cups when he is turned right-side up.
Things are a bit topsy turvy right now with all that’s going on in your life. It’s a bit much to keep up with, quite frankly, so rather than letting some potentially important balls drop, why not “chillax”, scale back, maybe ask a friend to help out. (Nannies have to make a living too, you know.) There’s nothing wrong with admitting you’ve bitten off more than you can chew. Prioritize what’s most important and make a list from 1-10. Then set about accomplishing them and checking them off one by one. It might take a bit longer, but you’ll feel so much better and rest easier. Balance is everything.
