Does your life need some sweetness? A gift of white flowers perhaps? Cups in tarot are all about the emotions, feelings, the free flow of the open heart. The number six signifies harmony, healing, family. In this picture we see an older boy giving a golden cup with a white flower to a smaller, we presume younger, girl. Looks like an older brother and his younger sister to me. The farm house in the background is perhaps the childhood home. We think back to a time when all was gentle and tender. The nostalgia of the past brings with it a rosy tint. Perhaps this is what’s needed for this week.
Things in the world were looking pretty bleak and it was difficult to find a light at the end of the tunnel. Then this lovely card with its message of hope and inspiration filtered in to bring us off the ledge. How can we be like this beautiful woman, tending to her jugs of water which replenish the verdant landscape of flowers in the peace and calm of star shine? True, we are in a difficult time with six planets in retrograde, a worldwide pandemic, social unrest. But let us remember that the Star appears in the Tarot deck after the Tower where destruction and turmoil occur. We will emerge from the crisis with a new sense of self divinely inspired and energized with beneficial purpose for all. Follow the light and act in love.
Love love love is what it’s all about this week. The expression “My cup runneth over” is apt as the dove of peace brings the wafer of forgiveness to the waters of love running over the rim of the golden cup held by the hand of god appearing out of the clouds in a blue blue sky. The water sustains the lilies dotting the surface of the pool of blue water. To Buddhists the water lily is a symbol of enlightenment, purity, and divine birth. The beautiful bloom emerges from the mud. Peace love and mercy. The spirit of the holidays approaches.
A handsome knight on a white horse offers a golden chalice. Is it filled with a love potion? He is ready to cross the stream to your side where desert mountains loom large. He offers the comfort of heart flow, love and the trust of a good friend. Being that he wears red fish on his cloak we think he might be an artist, perhaps a musician or painter. And even if this is just a dream isn’t it nice to enjoy the prospect of love in your life?
Your creative juices are flowing and the seeds you have sown are ready for harvest. Drawing on the energy of the Empress who sits on her luxurious divan in the midst of a wheat field you trust in your nurturing and loving spirit that embraces the life-force found in everything. As you are in tune with your divinity and the positive energy of source within you can’t help but create in a positive flow. Honor nature, beauty and the impulse to create. This is the spirit of the times.
