Reading the 7 of Cups: The Good and Bad

Ah, the 7 of Cups.  The the classic Rider-Waite deck, the image on the card appears as a man who is looking at a cloud of seven cups.  Each of the cups has several different images on it.  The one has a snake, a head, a person with some sort of cape, etc.  Without much surprise, basic meaning of the card is one of imagination or fantasy.  It can easily signify a person who is in a “daydream” state.  Is it a good or bad card to see come up?  I’ve found that there can be quite a fine line with this particular card, as it is ultimately very very neutral (as most all things in the world truly are at a spiritual level).  Lets dive into this a little deeper to provide some insights as to how this card can be read when it comes up in a tarot spread…

The trick in to understanding the underlying drive and energies behind a card such as this is to do two things: 1.  Be sure to check and notice the energy patterns in the other cards that you have dealt and 2.  Trust what your intuition tells you, which is, more often than not, your first initial instinctual reaction to the cards before you allow any thought to surface.

If you seem to notice a negative trend of energy in the cards, this card can easily be read as “someone who has their head in the clouds and isn’t quite facing the reality of their situation”.  You may see and intuitively sense that there is a lot of negative energy in perhaps the person that they are asking about or perhaps even simply not-so-pleasant things going on around them despite this inner positive daydream that they have going on.  In these circumstances, it is almost best to recommend the querent to stop the daydreaming for a moment and to fully look at their situation objectively with full mental clarity with no-emotional ties.

Now, on the flip side, if you notice positive things working behind the scenes and sense that this person is going through a good period of transformation or some mere evolving then this card can easily mean that they are doing some creative visualization, meditation, or hypnotherapy that is motivating their unconscious so they can learn or grow.  Despite what negative things could occur with this card’s energy as I mentioned previously, it certainly has a lot of good that can come out of it as well.  The trick, of course, is to find balance between these things by allowing ourselves to co-create with the universe rather than tell the universe what we want and desire and completely ignoring the intuitive messages being sent to us.

So, to sum this up, the 7 of Cups can certainly become a great positive influence for us and our evolution or it can cause us to be stagnant.  In order to be sure that it is pro-active rather than passive, we must be sure that whatever dreams and goals we set for ourselves through our creative visualization, affirmations, or meditation is that we are allowing ourselves to naturally flow with the universe rather than resisting it due to our emotional attachment.

Happiness cannot be…

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude. ~ Denis Waitley

There’s a lot of truth here! In fact, by standing alone because you love what you are standing for (what is true in your heart) you will ultimately discover that you are happier!

Weather Tarot Prediction: How Will Hurricane Isaac Go?

As many of you know, Hurricane Isaac will soon be reaching New Orleans this week, coincidentally exactly seven years after the Hurricane Katrina tragedy.

To dive into a deeper look at this hurricane and to see a possible outcome, I decided to ask my Tarot Cards using the classic Rider-Waite deck. The cards I drew were:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The cards are: High Priestess, Hierophant Reversed, Ace of Cups Reversed, and 3 of Pentacles Reversed.  No particular spread was used, I simply ask the question and dealt the cards.

I actually only intended to draw three cards but I had the 3 of Pentacles Reversed fall out of the deck so that tells me that there is some significant energy of the 3 of Pentacles present.

The first thing that stood out to me when I saw these cards was the Hierophant Reversed and the 3 of Pentacles Reversed — it seems that perhaps despite warnings and recommendations by authorities people will not make the proper precautions.  There is a lack of really working together here.  It’s as if people aren’t or won’t be quite doing as they should be in some way.  The Ace of Cups Reversed is quite interesting as well — and it makes me wonder about New Orlean’s new levy that they set up after Katrina.

I hate to say it, but to be completely honest and sum up what my initial reaction was, I can’t help but get the impression that they haven’t quite prepared as much as they could have since Katrina 7 years ago.  The Ace of Cups R has water coming down from the top (as New Orleans is a city already below sea level).  Then the High Priestess I felt was a strong indicator to really “trust your intuition”.  I’d predict that there is going to be flooding in at least some areas but they aren’t fully preparing for them by evacuating.

But, of course, this could very easily be interpreted many different ways.  For those who are regular tarot readers, beginners or even complete novices — what is your interpretation of these cards?

Personally, I find this to be quite an interesting combination so I’m really looking forward to the different interpretations here!

Weather Tarot: How will Typhoon Bolaven go?

As some of you may know, a Typhoon Bolaven has reached Japan today and will reach the mainland of Korea tomorrow morning (about 12 hours from now). So I have asked my tarot cards: How will this typhoon go?

The cards I dealt using the classic Rider-Waite are:

20120827-213018.jpg

That is: 9 of Wands, 4 of Pentacles Reversed, 9 of Cups Reversed.

So for any fellow readers out there or even the complete novices, feel free to make a comment and give your own interpretation as to what you think these cards are saying!
