Mother of Cups, a master of intuition. She knows all before anything is spoken and sees all before anyone understands. Her introspection is natural and unforced, she senses the most subtle energies. The white swan depicted on the card with her wing above a single goblet. There is a black background with white vertical lines and magical colored stars exploding. The swan from the bottom is immersed with the darkness of the unknown. The subconscious and herself are merged as one. What has once been hidden has been brought to light and this is where her magic emerges from, the union of dark and light. The goblet under her wing represents the element of water that coincides with emotions of herself and others. When she goes through hardships she knows how to nurture herself and go beyond struggles. This allows her to be an open space for others to come and rest in her warm embrace. Her emotional maturity assists to be a clear mirror for others allowing them to return to their own power.
The Mother of Cups is not a rational thinker. She taps into the world that can only be felt in energy. She believes what she feels more than what others say and is purely guided by intuition. She trusts herself and the way her heart is naturally moving her. Her sensitivity and openness can draw people into her life for certain periods of time, in short or long bursts. Her hearts expression is trusted because of her own trust in herself. Many find this nurturing to arrive in her embrace when feeling vulnerable. They leave strong and empowered once again because she points them to look within. This allows others to discover themselves because of their willingness to open and sincere looking. She is open for all who cross her path and can investigate quickly and almost immediately the sincerity of those who come her way. There are times when the Mother of Cups can give so freely that she can at times deplete herself, but this is only when she is not strong in her presence. She is so sensitive that she picks up on this immediately and draws back to nurture herself. This is one aspect she must pay attention to so she remains in her full power. As intuitive as she is, she also must remember to care for this sweet energy and psychic abilities.
The Mother of Cups is also a card of creativity. When we are tapped into the source we were born with we are naturally spontaneous and creative. This is a time to allow all creativity to flow through like water and watch creative endeavors bloom into full fruition. Those visions that come to you now are not merely fleeting ideas, but pure expressions that wish to arise. Have fun with your visions and give them full permission to come into physical reality. You are divine spirit in human form. Allow the feelings of creative vision come into your physical reality and have fun! Those ideas you have are unique to your specific energy and plays an inspiring role for yourself and others.
The Mother of Cups can also be drawn when something feels stuck within the being. She is a reminder of natural power, pointing you to the space where all is free to express. The feeling of being stuck can come around when one is trying to figure something out instead of relaxing and being in the fullness of here. In this moment is where all beauty emerges, it is here we can fully trust. When we see this, infinite relaxation is expressed inside. Where does any dis-ease stem from? From resisting being here and trying to get somewhere else. What happens when you feel where you are now? You are completely free to move in this life with what resonates in your heart most naturally. If there is any resistance inside it can indicate running away from yourself on some level. We can see in our own life how running away is impossible. When we allow ourselves to be present with ourself we can see the fear, let it be and it release quickly. The longer we avoid or run away the stronger it becomes. When we allow ourselves to fully be where we are, we surrender to life in the most natural way. Not running, not hiding. Any fear that arises can be felt fully without attaching any stories to it. We will see that the mind tries to attach a feeling of fear with a story, but when we stay with the fear and look at it and give it space to be, it melts away. The power of attention to look and be where we are melts all things away which drains energy. This leaves us with infinity to have fun expressing ourself any way we wish. The Mother of Cups is a reminder of the infinity of when you honor your being and are fully here. This awareness that you are will burn everything away and leave you in your natural movement.
