For the week of September 15, 2013 I am using The Tarot of the Sevenfold Mystery by Robert M. Place (Hermes Publications). My card is the ACE OF CUPS.
|The Tarot of the Sevenfold Mystery|
On this version of the Ace of Cups, I am drawn first to the central window at the top of the castle, and secondly to the waves of water below. This week, I will be working with a creative team to bring a chapter book I wrote further towards publication. There is a castle in that book and, specifically, an upper level window that figures prominently in the story. It is interesting that there is a bird on the card, as a bird also plays an important role.
The waves speak to me of deep emotions and the subconscious -- sources for many a good story, I think. As I enter this new phase of development (Ace) with my book, I will want to listen to my subconscious and follow my intuition. The water in this image is not flat or calm, so I think there may be emotional turbulence or uneasiness involved in some way.
Those are my first impressions. It is possible that the card refers to some new opportunity or path I may encounter in the area of emotions and relationships. My reaction to the window at the top-center of the castle may represent a new lens or filter through which I experience that area of life.
