Week at a Glance: King of Cups

The purpose of drawing a "Week at a Glance" card is to get a sense of the sort of energy, circumstances, or personal qualities I might need to be aware of during the upcoming week.

For the week of September 22, 2013 I am using _The Animism Tarot_ by Joanna Cheung (Rainbow of Crazy). My card is the KING OF CUPS.

The Animism Tarot


A humpback whale plays the role of King of Cups in this beautiful deck (watch this blog for my upcoming review). In addition to being a huge, powerful creature (48 to 62.5 ft long, weighing 40 tons), the humpback whale is known for its complex "songs," which are believed to be a method of communication.

It appears that the personal qualities I might need to be aware of this week include gentleness, patience, serenity, and harmonious communication. I must remember to play one of my whale song CDs while I'm in my office this week!

  1. I am looking forward to read this review. For me Tarotdecks with just animals are somewhat more difficult than others. For instance I don't see a king of cups in a whale without reading the LWB. It is a shame because the cards look amazing
    Have a nice week (I do like whale songs :D )

    1. Hello Ellen! From my experience with animal decks, even if the creator takes great care in choosing the animals to represent each card, the association is a "stretch" in most cases, and not "intuitive" for the reader. Yet I do love the art and contemplating the animals on each card, while keeping in mind the associations I carry for that card.
