King of Wands

Represents: mature man/light hair/blue or hazel eyes

Using a wand as a scepter, the King is a man of authority. He encourages everyone to rise to their potential. He is a proud man, if a bit hasty at times.

Reversed

He maintains power but not with the same enthusiasm. In fact, he feels doubt. At times he is impatient and quite severe.

Ace of Cups

The five streams of water symbolize the five senses. The dove of spirit is above. The Ace of Cups encourages us to follow our heart. A new love is on the horizon.

Reversed

The water spills from the cup, signifying an empty heart. Low self-esteem is an issue.

Two of Cups

This card represents a union. The lion with wings is balanced both spiritually and materially. If we have conflicts, we must seek a truce. We are looking for connections.

Reversed

Misunderstanding. The lion now has no power to help. There will be a disagreement with a friend. Someone must make the first move to repair the damage that has been done.

Three of Cups

The three women share their cups(emotion) with each other. They are happy to be together! Good food, good friends, good times!

Reversed

We need to apologize to someone whose name has come up in the reading. The reversed Three of Cups encourages us not to participate in gossip.

Four of Cups

The young man has three cups before him, and is being offered a fourth. However, he is detached and bored. He feels that no one really understands him. Note his body language:He is non-receptive to affection, and protects himself from contact.

Reversed

He's feeling renewed energy. Right now, though, he's feeling that nothing is happening, but he is prepared to re-create his dreams.

Five of Cups

The Five of Cups represents`loss. Three cups are overturned. The upright cups remind us that there is hope, as does the bridge in the distance. Regret and sorrow consume the cloaked figure right now.

Reversed

All is not lost. An old friend returns to his life. As one chapter ends, so another begins.

Six of Cups

There will be a meeting with someone from the past, or a reunion with family. Any new opportunities will be connected to the past. An item from the past may resurface or be returned.

Reversed

We are clinging to the past and are disappointed with family. It's time to grow into the future, and release the past a bit. We're holding onto it a little too tight and can't balance both the past, present and future.

Seven of Cups

The figure in this card has so many choices - Wealth, victory, love, comfort. These may all be daydreams rather than reality. He seems to be deluding himself and needs to reorganize and ground his thoughts.

Reversed

He's making a decision and is on the right track. He'll follow through.

Eight of Cups

This person is totally dissatisfied. Notice he has stacked his cups neatly before moving on. He's finished with the past and is seeking something more, even though he doesn't know what that is yet.

Reversed

He turns back to his world with renewed interest. He has a need for connection.

Nine of Cups

The Nine of Cups is the Wish Card. Other cards in the spread will tell us how and when this wish will come true.

Page of Cups

Represents: Young person/fair coloring/blue or green eyes

A fish emerges from the cup, signifying imagination. The Page holds the cup out to us. He wants to be of service and will deliver a message to us.

Reversed

The fish and the water run to the ground. Messages don't arrive. A young person is withdrawing and needs to speak with us.

Queen of Cups

Represents: Woman/fair coloring/blue or green eyes

She gazes at her cup, which is closed, signifying that not all may see it. Highly intuitive(surrounded by water and undines), she is a good friend/wife/mother.

Reversed

She has lost her cup and the water surrounding her is now rough. She can't see past these conditions and her character changes to one of immorality and dishonesty.

King of Cups

Represents: man/fair coloring/blue or green eyes

A man of education, he sits upon turbulent water. No matter...He is a balanced and devoted person. He has a great interest in the Arts.

Reversed

The King has been thrown into the water. His emotions are being tossed around. He is crafty now, even though he maintains a peaceful exterior. He would like to take advantage of you, if given the opportunity.
