The darkened figure is looking upon seven golden chalices appearing out of the clouds. There is chilling aspect here, perhaps a warning regarding desires and illusions. Be careful what you wish for…or all that glitters is not gold. The illusory aspect of wishful thinking must be addressed as the ego leaps to a quenching of emotional needs. Look carefully upon your wishes and the options that come your way. There are snakes, sophists, phantoms, towers, jewels, victories and dragons. Know that all this can disappear like the cloudy bed upon which they appear. Be still in the silence and listen to your inner voice. Truth is there.
This week be prepared to be served up all kinds of choices–some good, some bad, some perplexing. What is that shrouded figure coming out of one of the golden cups? Is it a ghost? After all, Halloween is Wednesday! You are cautioned to weigh each option carefully and meditate on the illusory aspect of desire. Seven is the number of assessment and knowledge. Cups are love and relationships. Don’t get carried away by your idealistic nature. Dig a little deeper for the truth. Remember…”all that glitters is not gold.”
