Five of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Five of Cups is striking. Immediately gives a feeling of sadness and despair. The color of the horse is white, which symbolizes a purity and innocence energy present. The head hangs low in the darkness, absorbed in energy that is pained, doubtful, and grim. Above the horses head is light space with five cups hovering above the creatures head. The cups are on a higher plane than the horse, above him, and he pays no attention to their presence. Instead the energy of the card is paying most of the attention with the darker aspects of his experience while completely missing there are always both energies of shadow and light present. If we are alive, we are never fully engrossed in only darkness, but with energy focusing solely in that direction it can seem that is…all encompassing. When looked at more closely, a tiny detail on the horse is seen is a slight smile, barely noticeable. An energy is felt that perhaps on some level, in a subtle way, this dark energy is enjoyed in some way and is what is adding fuel to this low vibration. While there are five cups floating above, perhaps the energy here is suggesting there is a choice of not wanting to see.

To see a free spirited and strong creature slumped over in darkness can suggest that something in the querents life is not aligning with their soul purpose, that which makes them feel alive. vibrant and in harmony with life. It is possible the querent will intuitively know what the card is pointing to as it is drawn. The initial feeling of what is seen is worth the investigation as it can be a trigger that is connected to something deeper and ignites a initial spark inside. If there is a time where perhaps we are not expressing the passions that are intertwined deeply with our heart we can begin to lose vibrancy. Our unique soul expressions are a necessary part of our health and happiness and many times are linked with the main source of our life force/prana.  If one is prioritizing only practical matters before that which makes their soul move, this sadness or despair can creep in and replace creative vision and expression. Five of Cups invites balance to what is practical in nature, but to never forget what excites and nourishes oneself deeply. Although this present time can have a shade of powerlessness on various levels, we always have the power of attention.  Where is one focusing attention? What is the quality of life that this attention focused is highlighting?

Five of Cups represents a loss or pain and on top of that shame and guilt that is felt. This is what keeps the energy in the darkness. The pain felt is not coming from the experience itself, but from the mental and emotional activity added on top of the turmoil already being experience. This stretches out the healing process for weeks, months, even years. Some beings may go through life with this extra layer of shame or guilt added on top of an experience that is long gone. Because this mental activity is held on to it makes the healing much more painful and drawn out. There is a victimization going on in this card.  Clinging to the past when there is so much to be immensely grateful for now. There are times when we have to shake these ghosts that seem to be sucking our sweet nectar. There is a time to feel it all, but there is also a time to check in and make sure one is not dwelling in the darkness for too long. It arises for us to learn and grow, but it isn’t meant for us to set up camp and remain in the shadows. Energy is always flowing, the waters always moving, and there is always the opportunity to navigate in a new way. Five of Cups can represent something like an investment in unhealthy emotions or ways of thinking, a death in the family, something that is weighing on you in the slightest or heaviest way that is draining your energy. Ask yourself, maybe through journaling or whenever you feel, has there been to deep of an investment to that which is no longer serving you? Have you been grieving, sitting in sadness, or wallowing for too long? It is time to get fresh energy flowing. Whatever has happened or whatever state you find yourself in, it can be learned from and used wisely as another tool through your travels.

All that pains us and pushes us is also a catalyst for creation. Some of the most beautiful artists in the world experienced tremendous pain in life and transmuted this energy to beauty for themselves and others. We are not only one label or shape that we can package nicely and say “This is me” Jesus….that would be fucking boring. If one can package themselves in any shade of the broad spectrum, this will be a sad day. We are all vast and uniquely orchestrated beings. When we identify heavy with one aspect of self we can tend to ignore or even have a distaste for the other. Sometimes this can block or cut off valuable aspects of or being. Five of Cups is an opportunity to embrace what may feel harsh in the beginning, but a reminder to not dwell there and know that all can be transmuted into creative energy. Many times when we feel we are in a slump or even stuck in any state of despair we think well shit…..THIS IS IT!!!! At that specific moment is when the most brilliant creation is waiting be birthed forth. As death comes of an aspect of being we are ready for the creative force to move us. This is part of the invitation here. Look at what is being tuned into and do not wallow. Feel, but do not stay in any lowly state too long. Allow your being to mature, learn and move on.

We are vast, creative forces with many options to explore. Allow the natural movement flow.

Six of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

We are ancient souls. As the trees have deep root systems in the earth and branches which touch the heavens, we are the same in this way. The height and depth of our being expand toward the sky and extend into the earth below. As we move through this life we are discovering unexplainable beauty we are blessed to experience. The trees roots represent ancient wisdom through our experiences, through our ancestors, and through collective consciousness. All that we have lived and witnessed is in our bloodstream creating our unique pattern. Our eyes can continue to open to subtler and subtler realms, or we can go to sleep and close our eyes when challenges arise. The power is always with us to open to life instead of close. The invitation is to open your sensitivity, be vigilant, and to not fall asleep after harsh experiences. We are invited by life to allow all that needs to arise within our experience and grow deeper roots as we travel all realms.  All that we have lived does not need to make us shrivel away and die while we are alive. We are meant to be shaken up to the immense beauty and magic that is present. The divine perfection that is ever permeating this fabric of existence.

Each being we meet has a root system with a different story, unique life movements, joyful times, extreme hardship, and everything in between. We cannot always know or see the root system of each individual. We can meet them with an empty mind, with no concepts or ideas about who we think they are. When we meet other beings with no mind, all judgement vanishes. This leaves room for immense healing and discovery to take place within each being. Our root systems may all have different stories, but when we meet as love we have space for all stories to be held in the vastness of our being. If one can meet another in this way, it is recognized within the capacity to hold space for yourself as you are. There is tremendous power in this acceptance for all as it is. It is where the magic of life is felt.

.::.

Our roots deeply grow into the earth. There is a connectedness to all of life that is felt within the ones being now more potently then ever before. All experiences from past have merged with your present and future to allow your being to flow with great ease. Where once your root system was shallow and weak, one is now absorbed in the ancient wisdom of spirits grace. As deep reflection of life moves the unfolding of your story, you are able to travel to new heights as lessons are learned from old stories. These lessons have a way of being learned overtime when we are ready and available to see. The ancient wisdom of our being has the capacity to be deeply rooted in the earth and high in the sky simultaneously. We are able to be here on the planet and simultaneously travel all realms of spirit. We do this when we are aware of it or not. A simple way of seeing our travel is through dreamtime. We discover in dream as we do in our waking state. As our roots run deep we open ourselves to learning from all and not limiting ourselves to one way of thinking or being. Life will continue to remove blind folders as we move from our ancient and sacred wisdom. This space defies all boundaries and definitions.

Ace of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

“This cup, the temple that is so full, has value only if it pours itself into the world. At the base of love is the desire to give away everything that it has collected.” – Alejandro Jodorowsky ‘The Way of Tarot’

.::.

Love is the essence. Untainted, pure, and unconditional. Experience within, naturally an attracting of this love within relationships.

Two of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Drawn are two white cups contrasting a black background with two red roses equally touching one another. The Two of Cups is not as strong of a card as The Lovers, however, it has infinite potential to go in that direction if both parties are willing to embark upon the depth of this journey. This card can indicate any kind of relationship, not only a union between to souls. It can indicate a partnership with ones work, the relationship with self and all of life, goals, creativity, friendships, and any aspect in life that one is presently united with. The cups are white indicating purity and innocence and the dark background indicates that many subconscious layers have been faced in order to reveal the purity and innocence of the white cups. Roses vibrate at the highest energetic frequency of any flower on earth. Roses remind us that within the fullest energetic capacity of our own being we can share this within a love relationship as we continue to be true to ourselves. If it is a project, goal, creative endeavor, work, or other union it is the possible to develop a genuine growth and bond in all areas. If one is moving in accordance with their unique path one will be in a strong union in all relationships that are present. At least, the potential is there. When we move from fear, selfishness, or greed in any way, our relationships will reflect this state. We are able to choose to move through these states if we have the willingness/honesty/transparency to do so.

Relationship with Self

Will always be the number one relationship.  As we continue our journey we have the beautiful gift of discovering ourselves and living in accordance with Spirit. Whether you call this Higher Self, God, Authenticity, or Being Yourself….its simply a different use of language to express our divine/human essence. As our relationship deepens with ourself we will see a depth of relationship around us that is showing us our own capacity of connection within ourselves. As we become more in line with our unique spirit our relationships will be in accordance with our vibration. People will come in and out of our lives as we are individually changing and growing. Long term deep relationships will continue to enrich our journey. Relationships will come together and fall away in natural ways as we are all on very unique paths learning specific lessons for our souls purpose/expression. The more we nourish ourselves from the inside we will be an emitter of energy instead of one who is only taking or trying to draw in energy from others/environment. As we feel full internally this will extend outward in our work, creativity, love relationships, and friendships. We are all doing the best we can. Two of Cups invites us to cultivate compassion and gentleness with each other when differences arise. When differences occur many times the answer is more love where there is frustration and confusion. As the compassion and love deepens for ourself it will naturally extend to others and all of life.

Love Relationship

Represented by the Two of Cups is an inspiring relationship that is equally fulfilling. Each partner is coming together with the intent to walk their individual paths allowing spirit to guide them while loving and supporting each other as they go. The lovers see that if they are each fulfilling their purpose/expression than their bond can move through the obstacles that come. Where the Lovers Card is more likely to be a longterm partnership the Two of Cups has less strength, but the possibility of strength The Lovers card has is still possible. The Two of Cups indicates that both individuals have the power to walk through the fire, but it may or may not happen within this partnership. All the inner spirit work that has been experienced by these two souls has been testing for both and much of their hurdles have been successfully overcome. However, they are still maturing in their being and may only be in each others lives for a very specific time. Either way there is tremendous deep inner work that has united these two for each one to expand tremendously. Each relationship is never wasted. Consciousness does not waste anything through experience. Learning is always occurring. Whether the relationships continues or shifts forms, it has changed each one to discover a deeper depth self.

Creative/Work Relationship

What is our Relationship with work and creation? The more we know ourselves we will stop leaking energy to that which doesn’t serve our spirit. We will stop working at jobs that drain our energy and we will start working and creating with what is purposeful and meaningful to our individual paths. The Two of Cups is a reminder if we are working/creating in a way that is not in alignment that we can create space everyday to work in the direction we would like to see expand. When we create space for what is in alignment for our unique path we naturally are inviting in a new direction. Perhaps you cannot leave your job today you don’t fully love, but maybe if you put an hour aside a day to what you love this energy will keep expanding until transitioning fully to work and create in accordance to your hearts truth. We are all unique and what is good or exciting for one is not good and exciting for another. Two of Cups asks us if we are nurturing our work/creativity in a genuine direction? Or do we still think it is impossible to do what we love? Two of Cups says there is always a way to nurture our work/creativity each day, even if it is for 5 minutes. As we do this, we will see how this expands over time. We will see and feel the fruits that come from our energy investment.
