The Queen of Cups sits on a throne of stone which is adorned with seashells and water nymphs. She is engrossed in a meditation gazing at the ornate golden chalice she holds in her hands. Surrounded by water she listens to the sounds awaiting for deep messages of inspiration. She feels the sense of the universe and will share it with you if you are open to receiving.
The image of the wealthy man giving coins to one beggar as one looks on while he holds a scale in his other hand is upside down. Coins seem to leap out of the picture, perhaps more noticeably with the reversed image. When our world is topsy turvy, whether in our inner being or by some external force of nature or persons, the concept of giving of ones resources be they financial, energetic or physical in nature, holds true. In giving we receive and in receiving we give. Not every giving needs to have the justification of scales. Sometimes it just needs to be an act of unconditional love.
