Today’s card: King of Cups 

Calm, not order, out of chaos.

The king sits on his stone high-back throne atop a stone mount. He’s wearing a blue tunic and a red and yellow cape. He holds a cup in his right hand and a scepter in his left. He sits calmly amid turbulent seas, under a Grey sky. To his left there’s a ship moving away in the distance. To his right there’s a fish that has come up out of the water. (This is probably the same fish that’s in the cup held by the Page of Cups.

The left hand refers to sending out power, energy, and to banishing. The right refers to attraction, taking in energy, abundance.

Unmoved by the chaos around him, he sits calmly.

This is a time of patience, and endurance. Keep your cool. The seas and whatever storms come will right themselves.

Today’s card: VII of Pentacles

You planted them, they’re growing, but they’re not ripe yet. Keep taking care of them, and the time to pick them will come. It’s okay to rest a bit.

Whatever we’re working on is starting to bear fruit, and we can see it, but it’s not rewarding us yet. Again we have a Grey sky which speaks of holding patterns…things not quite ready.

Today’s card: VIII of Pentacles

A young man sits on a workbench cutting a pentagram into the surface of a pentacle coin. On the ground is a pentacle he just completed, and on a post he has six others hung, as if for sale. In the distance to the left is a castle, and there’s a grey sky.

Grey skies always speak to me of a time of preparation. Getting things ready. Not exactly a fun time or a time of celebration. Have patience. Focus on the task and the customers will come.

Today’s card: V of Cups

image

A lone figure stares regretfully at three overturned cups before him, with two behind him still standing. The sky blue, and in the distance a river flows quickly by and there is a bridge across it farther away leading to a castle.

Hindsight is always 20/20, as the saying goes, but it’s easy to get stuck back there. Your better days are always now. You cannot go back to a fervently cherished moment. Nor can you catapult forward to an equally coveted future. The way across the impassable stream will present itself. The blue sky indicates a peaceful journey. The water in the cups will sustain you. It’s time for a walk.
