Eight of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

…::.. Eight  of  Cups ..::…

.::. Moving  Forward .::. Drastic  Change .::. Onward  &  Upward .::.

..Shattered white cups at the foot of a dark mountain. An unknown horizon beyond..

Eight of Cups is about a great change that is known or felt. Either something must shift, or one has already decided to take the leap. Internally, there is already the presence of a gut wrenching knowing that one must move toward a new direction in one or various aspects of life.  As we travel the inner and outer realms of life we begin to take with us what is fulfilling and rich in our lives and we also pick up what hinders the organic and vibrant flow of life. As we continue to journey we learn, grow, observe, act, and move in ways which that at times in vigor our lives and also deplete our lives. This is how we learn to navigate more wisely, as we open our eyes to what resides in the deepest core of our being we honor what wishes to be valued, cherished, and nourished. As we become acutely attuned with this core depth of our being we begin to invite that which serves our highest good and detect much more efficiently that which does not. The Eight of Cups is a drastic change that makes space and movement toward that which is in higher alignment with our individual and collective path. Becoming raw, open, vulnerable, and honest, moving forward to that which nurtures, supports, and holds our sacred path with loving arms.

For something that needs to be changed it must be acknowledged sincerely. As this takes place, internal space becomes open and light for new movement to be made internally and externally. Eight of Cups can be painfully beautiful. As we see what no longer serves we make the choice of rising into new territory celebrating a new way of living. This is a time to reassess and evaluate what we hold dear and what we do not. What is it that we cling to which is weighing us down and what moves are we making to step forward? Eight of Cups looks dark, but as this darkness is acknowledged a breath of fresh air is inhaled and new perspectives arise. This leads to more magic, possibilities, and a great abandoning of poisons and toxins within our being. As we face these dark layers from denied territories within we expose the immense beauty that is birthing itself into existence. We are pregnant with new life, and a fresh way of being. Death and Birth are tied in as one. We see this as we dive deeply and uncover what was/is dormant…we awaken the sleeping beast.

One must ask, has what been seen been fully acknowledged? Or, is there still an aversion to this honesty? An automatic response will come within. Deep in our womb, we know. When we tune in, pay attention, the answers show themselves. Whether on the verge of raising a hand and acknowledging the hidden dragon, or, on the other side where one has already acknowledged what is….Now is the time to feel into this. Eight of Cups is drastic change. It’s coming, it is here, and the next trajectory is lighter and brighter once deep recognition takes place. It can be extremely scary to walk into unknown territory and extremely exciting. The next chapter of the unknown is a step in the right direction. It is the rainbow after the storm. One is being pulled into right alignment with their soul purpose. It is a time when profound realizations of ones unique direction and path are leading the way and what must be let go in order to create new space and new life. All stagnant, dormant, and all that is unchecked will arise now. Dive deeply, be honest, and watch the magic that arises from this rawness of spirit.

Three of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Three of Cups is a time for play, enjoyment, and absolute celebration. Three of Cups embodies dance, celebration, eating yummy food, and gathering with those we love. Three of Cups comes at a time where rest is needed before reengaging focus and direction towards a project, work, creation, school, travel, or a completely new direction. A solid foundation has formed and intuition and actions have united in positive direction. Energy is in alignment with being, merging the heavens and earth. The invitation is to melt into enjoyment and spontaneous fun. When we allow periods of rest and play this will feed the fresh energy needed to continue the work, moving solidly forward. If feelings of doubt aries that vision may be lost because of taking a break ~ see all the energy already invested and nourished thus far! The foundation is already there and the momentum is already moving in the correct direction. Think of taking a temporary rest or break from a goal as an energy investment for the long term future visions and goals. It will add more power to the work and empower ones energy.

Three of Cups invites us to look at what kind of people we are surrounded by. Are we inspired and led in a positive direction by those around us? Are we supported through highs and lows by the people we choose to befriend? Do they inspire healthy habits or negative ones? Do they support dreams and aspirations, or put them down? Three of Cups says investigate and look at the friends around us. Are we comfortable with friends simply because they have been in our life for years?  Are we scared to make new connections that may stretch comfort of what is known? Every detail of our life is constantly shapeshifting, molding, and forming our existence. When we have standards of the quality of people we choose to surround ourself with we are aligning with the highest within ourself. How do our friends reflect aspects of ourself that we want to change and how do they reflect aspects of ourself that empower strengths? Our friends are mirroring many layers of our own being. The attraction magnetizes people together for discovery, growth, and expansion. If a relationship is not pushing any boundaries, the inquiry here is to ask what is being overlooked that is causing this relationship to stay stagnant? Are there some relationships that can be let go of in order for new energies to move in? Or do conversations need to be opened for clear communication to move through? A solid and true friend will be willing to open the doors to expand on what is asking for clarity. Three of Cups asks us to align with those who are healthy for us, who push us in a positive direction, who support dreams and aspirations, who offer support through light and dark phases of life, and who honors what one deeply values in life because it is the same within them. Three of Cups invites us to let go of those who no longer align and allow new forces to come in that raise us in a higher ways.

.::.

There is a giving and receiving of energy that is fulfilling and authentic with Three of Cups. Aspects of being are flowing in unexpected ways. Through communication and everyday movements there is a maturing unfolding within and opening in new ways that allow many aspects of who one is to be more expressive than ever before. This is assisting in relating with many different people from all walks of life. Opportunities will be presenting themselves at this time, doors will be opening and interactions will be on the rise. One is either making their own way right now, or, there will be people reaching out in your line of work to collaborate with you. Intuition is wide awake now and can be trusted to continue your work alone or with others at this time. You are confident to know if it is right for you or not. Three of Cups says enjoy this period of expansion and play, allowing it to move you in fresh, spontaneous, and magical ways.

Nine of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Nine cups are drawn in the shape of a lucky horse shoe with a crescent moon at the top of the card. The moon is depicts the listening to subtle guidance within that has moved one in a way that feels gratitude and contentment for what is. The hues of blue and purple in the background are soothing colors that reflects a being of equanimity and deep rest within. This is a time where one is enjoying the pleasures of life, but not taking life for granted and appreciating deeply what is present. Nine of Cups can feel a bit day dreamy as the cups float against the smooth horizon. The invitation is to allow the daydreaming to be, as this is your inspiration and creativity. However, allow daydreaming and action to merge towards those visions. This will allow dreams to fully take form. There is deep joy in all areas of ones experience now and whatever way you move will be from a place of love, not fear or doubt. This will create tremendous beauty in your wake.

Cups represent the emotional state of being, relationships, self expression, creativity, and moving from the heart. At this time one is overflowing in all areas of life and love is pouring through to all relationships and creations. As you feel the abundance in all aspects of life, worry and fear has left your experience. It simply isn’t there, life is moving you in a way that is most natural to your being. The power of presence is felt instead of the mind ruling your action. Nine of Cups is a natural balance with all of nature where one is not feeling as an outsider in life, but connected to the whole of creation. The magic of what is felt has already flooded through the bloodstream and there is no going back to old ways of being. Like a snake, many skins have been shed and the way in which you feel life is without tension. This moves you to create, play, work, and communicate in ways that are open and fresh. Manipulation, grasping, and wanting life to be different is gone and one is seeing the immensity of beauty that is always here.

Nine of Cups is a card of gratitude. The more gratitude that is felt the less we feel we need to have more. We really begin to experience the fullness of our life emanating from the inside instead of trying to collect things, people, or experience to fulfill inner discontent. Nine of Cups is full of overflowing abundance, this does not necessarily mean one is wealthy in terms of monetary gains. One is fulfilled of the riches of simply being alive. This vibration alone turns everything in gold. All that you place your energy towards come from this clear channel. You are creating beauty, experiencing love, joy, relationships are flourishing, and others you come into contact with are inspired and fulfilling meetings. Any goal you have now will do well if you remain investing your energy in the direction you wish. The Nine of Cups is a time of enjoying beauty in mother earth and your self, delighting in your senses, art, love making, and all that connects you to life. This automatically inspires every movement, all creation, work, and all things birthed from you now.

.::.

Something to think about in relishing in life is that the ebb and flow is always changing. Now may be all about the pleasures of life and enjoying, but the invitation here is to keep one foot on the ground as you enjoy and to not over indulge in what may “feel good.” The invitation is to be in deep gratitude for what is. When this vibration is present overindulgence will not be an issue and one can fully enjoy the present. Nine of Cups is the wish card of the deck. Not that something will fall out of thin air into your lap, but where your energy is invested will come into full physical being at this time.

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’

.:.

Grace of love radiates the Ace of Cups. Nourishment on all levels of being are expressed fully in the present moment. One radiates contentment and ease that glows through ones field in decadent, juicy, creative abundance. Filled with the spirit of love and not an ounce of conflict with what is. All is abundant, fresh, and outpouring with inspiration. This gives tremendous space within to play, feeling light and free – but also to enrich the lives of others with the gifts one has received. Originating from a space that is clear, open, and imbued with rose infused love the Ace of Cups overflows in labradorite geometries weaving webs of abundance shared through understanding. Full allowance of the divine play is fully present, unfolding the glorious gifts given to those who are ready to receive the next golden step to reach sustainable growth flowering from pure hearted awareness.

Ace of Cups sweet nectar pours itself into you from heavenly realms and gives birth to what is seen & experienced. A child’s playful essence interwoven with mature depth and unending appreciation through experience of being.  Recognize the inherent freedom and the freedom of others and all of life that is present. There is no manipulated  malevolent energy, all has transmuted into the burning wings of a newborn phoenix. There remains a deep awe of all experiences and unfolding that have allowed one to never cease tire in growth and expansion. Deep freedom extends to all of life like a fountain of deep purple hued elixir pouring into the mouth of the earths most sacred and hidden caverns. This pure and untainted love moves like a liquid storm of pink lilacs and turquoise roses. Deep relaxation that gives might and security to creative freedom. Abundant flow is rediscovered in absolute alignment of spirit. This blooms from life stripping what is not true hearted. Ones entire energetic field dances in the same frequency as source energy is unveiled without draining this infinite undressing we unweave by invisible threads of light.

Immense creativity pouring through like lightning bolts through a desert storm. Allowance of power facilitates growth. Conduit of clarity. What pours from this cup is a gift for oneself and equally those who enter your energetic path. The essence of what wishes to come through was patiently dormant until present, enough space has been felt to fully allow the red velvet curtain to rise. A blooming voice, intuitive body, and strategic action is embodied fully to move visions fully to flower anew.

.::.

Love is the essence. Untainted, pure, and unconditional. Experience within, naturally an attracting of this love within relationships. A meeting of a pure reflection of what is held within the multidimensional heart. Allow this love to expand into the depths of your being. This pure love sheds any final fragmentations of layers and bring out the shining diamonds waiting to be discovered.  This creates a bond and space for deeper love and great earth and ethereal expansion to develop and refine. Love is the guide.  Embrace the total beaming beauty of you in realms of subtlety and full light spectrum. The love that is experienced to such an incomprehensible degree present will saturate each cell with excitement of what is and what is to come. Every day will brim with new found possibility and action of inspiration.

Four of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Absorbed in darkness, a rat rests atop four cups. Above him, a white light representing Pure Awareness & a crescent moon symbolizing intuition. Cups represent our emotional spectrum of being. Feelings, creativity, imagination, connections, love, and relationships with self and all of life. The rat is sitting on top of four cups being offered, but he is in the darkness. Four of Cups is asking if one is seeing what is here right now, or is one imagining themselves into the darkness? What are you not seeing that you already have? Are you being offered everything you need/want but cannot clearly see? This is a time that emotions are arising fiercely and a time to fully be present with them as they arise. When we take time to allow ourselves to feel what is, we will be able to truly see our present moment experience and all the beauty which is already present. In order for us to see our present moment reality we cannot ignore emotions that arise, we invite them in lovingly for they are wanting to be acknowledged. The invitation is to allow them to be felt fully and the being will naturally come into balance.

Sometimes we can miss the greatest gift that is with us all the time. We can wish or pine for things that are actually already here with us. When our mind and heart are divided we constantly see lack and that we do not have enough. When we are full of our own sweet nectar we see we aren’t missing anything and we are always divinely guided. We truly are seeing “outside” what we are “inside.” We don’t always want to say this is true because then we must take full responsibility for ourselves in a deep way. We can no longer blame outside sources for our suffering. In a way this is a great relief! Imagine if you had to fix everything outside of you?! What a freakin’ mess! Thankfully we have the opportunity to go inside ourselves and see where we hold resistance, be present with it and allow it to melt on its own accord. In one way we are responsible for the vibration we hold, but at the same time we see that all has been Grace sweeping through our house to show us the truth of our being, beyond limitations.

Four of Cups will come when there is dissatisfaction inside the being. One may feel as though there is something missing, or are not divinely guided. This feeling comes from an internal separation and cannot be satisfied by anything changed or shifted in the world. the change must come from our inner understanding. This can be a time where one has the urge to make drastic changes on the outside in order to feel differently. Four of Cups invites us to stay still. Before making any outside shifts in the outer world, take time to contemplate/reflect/meditate. Rest in your being and then see what changes occur naturally as you stay as awareness. The shifts that come from this space are always in alignment with your being. If one tries to change outside situation first, the internal peace will be temporary. Sooner or later the truth of dissatisfaction will present itself once again. We cannot avoid pain and conflict, we must face our darkness in order for any shifts to occur. We were built to have the capacity to hold space for this darkness. Four of Cups is an invitation to melt into your being and allow all actions to spring on their own natural accord.

.::.

The cups are here, abundance dripping all around. Somehow not being seen fully. There hasn’t been a full yes or full no to accept what life is presenting to you. There is a beauty being given to you because it matches your true vibration. Something within you is retreating out of fear. The invitation is that you are exactly where you need to be and you are being offered something rare and exquisite. You are on the right path, but you are blind because you are believing in doubts and fears instead of the truth of being. The cups are inviting you to drink from them and to trust life. Be fearless and say yes to what is here now. As we open fully to now, magic unleashes itself upon us. It has been here the whole time. As one resists, power is given to fears more than what is true. As you see through the nonsense you will see you are exactly where you need to be and your blackened cups will turn to liquid gold. When we see what is already present we stop taking life for granted and see the beauty in all that is.

Son of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Son of Cups is more mature than the Daughter of Cups with a depth of darkness and light that add to his character. The Daughter of Cups was in peaceful, illuminated water, while the Son of Cups has a movement drawing in an upward direction. This is showing a new chapter in life in a different direction that is stemming from what has been learned through his current experience. It is a new direction that comes from what he has bared witness to and experienced of light and dark. This new movement comes from wisdom that has unraveled over the course of his experience. The Son of Cups does not have the maturity as the Father, but has much more experience than the Daughter does in her sweet innocence. Different phases of life stretch our capacity in numerous ways and now is that of a growing phase for the Son. There is tremendous growth and depth, but not at the peak of maturity. The Son of Cups is at an exciting time shedding immense amounts of what no longer serves and highly sensitive to what does. So much so, that circumstances are rapidly changing to match the depth of what he is internally discovering.

Cups are linked with love and relationships, connections, and emotional well being. The cup in front of the swan is a combination of dark and light emotions at play. There is tremendous amount of heavy and light emotional energy bursting in this cup, but the Son at this time has the maturity to keep moving forward with grace. The Son of Cups is using this bubbling energy for creative thinking and momentum forward. Although there is some darkness in the cup this should not scare the one who pulls the card. We all have a depth of dark and light within and they can be harnessed and used in many creative and positive ways. How we perceive the darkness and light will determine if they will be used constructively or not. There is a good and healthy balance here that joins heart and mind energy. The Son of Cups is finding a better balance of intuition and logic combination. However, if he was pulled upside down it can mean the emotions are not being cared for properly and there can be movements that are hasty and overly emotional.

The Son of Cups emotions are very much concentrated within him. They are not expanding over the entire card. This energy is very much in the center of focus right now as he is moving from the inside out. He is introspective and allowing himself to feel the depth of the wide spectrum of his emotions. He is looking at triggers and paying attention to what feels healthy for him and what feels toxic. He is discovering illusions that have been deeply rooted and watching them fall away. There are many changes happening on very subtle levels. Ones he cannot entirely describe, but feeling completely and allowing grace to care for the changes. The invitation is to allow the exploration of the inner workings, but to not become self absorbed and narrow. Allow yourself to explore naturally, but do not obsess. This card can be equally as positive as it is negative. A good way to observe and see is how the inner/outer life is balancing. Is one paying attention to only inner and not practical life? This is something to be watchful of with this card. An invitation to learn from those who are the completely different from you is helpful, as they can have strengths you do not have. The invitation is to not neglect any aspect of self. As we connect more deeply with our naturalness all of these things begin to make sense and fall into their own balance, and that looks entirely different for everyone.

.::.

This is a time to investigate your how you genuinely feel. How are you taking care of yourself? Sometimes we take immense care in one way and completely fall off the wagon in another. The Son of Cups calls for balance in all aspects of life. Inviting sensitivity and compassion toward yourself and others now will make a world of difference. Whatever is being discovered, as dark or light as it may be can be seen in positive regard when we become honest and transparent with ourselves and take right action. With right action we will be guided in a direction that is in alignment with the highest good for ourselves and all of life. With right action use intuition, but don’t ignore logic and reason when they are useful. The capacity for all is there, use the balance of both as you move forward into unknown spaces.

Seven of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Seven cups, but only one is right side up. The one right side up is balancing on the tip of a cone with many sides indicating different perspectives at play.  It feels as though there are a world of possibilities and in that realm there are many illusions and one possibility that is aligned with truth. In the background of the card are horizontal lines that depict grounded and stable energy associated with choosing the cup that is most in alignment. The alternate perspectives that are depicted on the cone are hinting to be weary as some decisions are imagined illusions, hence the six cups hanging upside down where only one should be chosen. There is a delicate balance when choosing, as some things which are perceivably good choices are not necessarily the most healthy ones. Now is the time to make a move in the direction that you already know is true for you. You have been delaying the obvious choice, the obvious direction. Perfect opportunity to choose what is already engrained in your DNA to choose.

There can be a period in ones life where there are many ideas/visions floating around that there seems to be a struggle of choosing what the hell to do! What is the move? What do I do with all these ideas? How do I start? It can be overwhelming to have such an overactive imagination. Be happy that you do…with mighty visions and creativity now is the time they can be born into reality. First, a choice must be made and action can occur. The power is with you and all is conspiring to help you succeed, but action must be made. What is it you hold dearest in your heart that you are not expressing in life? What are you daydreaming about that has not yet come to be? It may even be a secret you hide from yourself and the world. Or perhaps you have been moving in the direction of your vision, but now it will be blooming quickly into being. You are birthing from a dreamlike, childlike essence that has been marinating. This period has been essential and this magic will not be lost, but now forces are here to bring this essence into physical reality. This is an exciting time as you have either made a choice or are about to choose a direction that is an abundant source for your creativity, love, work, and ideas to come to life. This will be an ongoing streamline of joy, wealth, and abundance within your life that will change forms as you shift and morph throughout life. This work is not separate from your heart. Each step will be accomplished with joy. So if you haven’t chosen yet….today is the day. Time to make drastic changes. With this energy in a very short time you can accomplish what you envision. Its not a race, but when the energy is high…ride that wave.

As you shift from dreaming to action you create a newfound movement in your life. You start seeing tangible results everyday and fall asleep with a full heart. We can often limit ourselves by not acting on our visions and dreams. Are some visions and dreams not feasible? Some may say so…but how the hell did we get a plane to fly? That probably seemed pretty impossible or even crazy at a time, but now we hop on a plane and go to sleep like its no big deal that we are sky rocketing through the air! How we perceive our visions and dreams is everything. Allowing room in day to day life for visions to come to be is crucial. If one is not allowing space everyday for a vision to come to life it is not going anywhere. It remains a dusty dream that floats away like a cloud. When you make a choice and you focus on it everyday that vortex becomes bigger and bigger until you get completely sucked in and completely stop doing what is not aligned with your vision. But the energy must be put towards the vision as much as possible for it to bloom. If not, how can we see the fruits of our labor of love? When we use excuses like there is no time, then of course you will create days where there is no time to do what you feel to do. It’s like exercising, you can either make time for it or not, it’s simply a choice. So remember…make time for what is important. The “time” is already here. But are you pretending you have absolutely no time to do what sets your heart ablaze?

.::.

Seven of Cups can be a reminder not to elude yourself. There are many cups to drink from in this life. Simply put, which one makes you happy and which one is healthy for you? If these two words health and happiness are not associated with the cup you choose then its an automatic toss out. Really take time to feel what wishes to birth itself, what nourishes your soul? Don’t worry about what anyone else thinks should be birthed from you, how the hell would anyone know?! You are the magician in your life. It is only you that can allow your visions and dreams to come forth. It is your magic that is a unique contribution to the world.  This time is exciting to see real and tangible results of what has been hidden within.

Father of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Father of Cups shows a black swan with a calm demeanor sitting on the water. There appears to be rain coming down depicted by vertical, black lines in the background. There is a black cup at the top of the card, above the swan. Father of cups shows emotional stability even through challenging chapters in life. This card can represent you or someone else in your life. You will be able to recognize if these characteristics are describing you or someone else. There is a subtle strength that exudes this image. There is an understanding of what arises within the being and to not attach to the waves of emotion or thought that arises. This understanding does not mistake these movements as the entirety of the being. This maturity comes with life experience and seeing clearly the source of who we are as opposed to believing false stories of oneself.

If the Father of Cups card is about you it represents an emotional maturity that you have. You know how to navigate through dark times and you realize that these waves are only strengthening you and stripping away more of what isn’t true. This allows for hardship to move through gracefully when you have this depth of understanding. You see all is in the perfect divine unfolding for exactly what you need. This understanding you have allows you to connect with many beings no matter where you are in the world. You draw from your universality to be called where needed. You can be a guide for others when they are getting entangled with thought and emotion, providing a safe haven for them to express fully. This creates space within their being to not be so entrenched in emotional unrest. This space created for fellow brothers and sisters allows one to see their thoughts and emotions for the impermanent nature they are and come back to source of being.

If you are facing a difficult time in the human experience the Father of Cups is a reminder to become in touch with your source, your natural vibration that comes before all of your perceived problems. Think of how everything you have been through in life has been all for the greater good. Think of the lessons you have learned and how all the hardships you have ever been through have only been stripping away what you are not. Do you see this? Can you connect the dots during this hard times and see that all is the perfection of this great cosmic unfolding? Father of Cups reminds you of your eternal strength and to not get swept away by the storm. Keep feeling a deep thanks within you for all that is experienced.

Father of Cups could be representing someone in your life right now. Someone with loving energy that seems to have untapped resources for all. Infinite love and gratitude. He can read peoples needs and navigate accordingly to create balance and harmony within any situation. This card is the embodiment of peace and calm, unshakeable energy that does not change with the winds because of fleeting excitement. This being is someone who can be trusted to go to through any life experience and understands the heart of human beings more deeply than most. This one is deeply compassionate and understanding. They can be trusted.

.::.

We are allowed to feel everything deeply no matter what arises. This card is a reminder to embody all aspects of self, light and dark. All is a divine play of consciousness that is a gift for us to experience. As wild as things can be perceived they can be moved through with grace. Stability does not mean one doesn’t cry or hides their emotions. Stability is the strength to be raw and real with all that arises and know that you are the one perceiving all of it. You come before all that you see. Stay as this undivided presence.

Daughter of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Daughter of Cups card depicts a baby swan, sitting on the water with a peaceful strength exuding her presence. The water has horizontal lines expanding into infinity. The card is mostly black and white, the only colors are of the swans reflection that radiates a rainbow of colors beneath her. This is a time of new beginnings, creative endeavors, and a time the spirit of inspiration guides us. We are to move into the direction that is in alignment with our true essence of what our heart desires. When you look at this card there is a feeling of calm and trust that is felt. The card speaks to trust our intuitive nature and subconscious messages that are depicted in the reflection of the water. So often we know what we want to do when we take the time to listen, this card is telling us to follow and trust our own guidance. To become in touch with subtle vibrations that breathe the same breath as all of creation. This space where all is taken care of and all is revealed when recognized.

Trusting our creative inclinations and exploring them is part of trusting. We don’t always know absolutely what we want to do, but this card is showing us we can have faith in what we are attracted to. There is a reason that we are drawn to specific endeavors and not others. As human beings we each have different flavors that we bring to life and it is what brings our unique spice into the world. The baby swan is radiating this beautiful rainbow reflection. It is showing we each intuitively have a guide and gifts to radiate from within us into life. The only way we can express this part of our authentic nature is if we take one movement forward into what emanates joy from our being.

The card depicts water that is serene. Water is a symbol of the unconscious. You may ask yourself what is under the surface that is waiting to be seen? The water here is still, calm, and peaceful, with a reflection that seems to be alerting a message into consciousness. This is a time to sit with ourselves and genuinely pay attention to receive guidance at this time. However it is we individually connect to source, which stills the waters of the mind in order for messages to fully show themselves. When we are cluttered our life is not flowing. We can feel stuck, not creative, and we don’t know how to move. When we pay attention to right now and fully be present with ourselves we can feel this life force coming back into the body. The same life force that inspires you and naturally guides you will naturally be shared with all of life when resting fully in the present moment.

The swan is a baby. When we are young we are open to the world and infinite possibilities, our spirit is not yet contaminated and full of conditioning. This card is an invitation to step into this childlike freedom. There is no restriction in this creature. Young, inspired, full of life, energy, vibrancy and creativity. This swan is free to move through this life in any direction it feels intuitively drawn to. This is a time to start fresh and start over. We are allowed to completely move in a new direction without thinking twice. We were born to follow our heart and intuition. When we go against this natural resonance is when we experience tremendous pain. This pain is a signal for us to question what we are believing to be true and if it really is true or are we causing unnecessary pain? It is up to us to choose to follow what we know in our heart to be true and how we wish to move.

Perhaps there has been a dark period that recently ended or is coming to a close very soon. The Daughter of Cups comes after this period and is the opportunity to learn from your experience and start over. To keep believing in what you feel you wish to express sincerely. To be like a child in awe of this life and what you can create out of love and beauty.
