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: Knight of Pentacles

image

A knight in full armor sits atop a plough/work horse. He is holding a single gold pentacle coin. On the ground behind him we see the rows of a plugged field. There’s a yellow sky,suggesting dawn or morning.

This could be considered a companion to Temperance, which suggests balance and moderation. Here we see that the major work has been done.  The knight is a soldier. He’s used to giving and taking orders. He is also accustomed to diligence, routine, and being methodical.

We need to continue and see the work to completion.
