Seven Of Cups: A man gazes at a group of cups standing on a cloud. Clouds represent our dreams and fantasies. Each cup holds something he values: knowledge (snake), love (face), a home (castle), wealth (jewels), honour (wreath) and power (the dragon). Tempting him away from what his soul desires as represented by the cup holding the shrouded figure. His back is turned towards the viewer indicating his indecisiveness over which cup he should choose.
If you get this card in a reading it’s telling you not to be distracted by superficial pursuits. That you need to work out what it is you really want and go for that. Stop building castles in the sky and make your deepest dreams a reality. Listen to you gut. Your inner voice.
As the Spice Girls sang, ‘So, tell me what you want. What you really really want.’
I want to finish writing a novel one day but like the man in this card (which I get a lot) I’m frequently distracted from this pursuit by more immediate satisfactions. What do you really really want?
