I think of this card as representing a world that is waiting to be born. She will emerge from the wreath only through our own contributions. We give ourselves to life, and to each other, in loving service, and the world will be laid at our feet.
Notes on the Tarot Cards
Although I encourage the reader to explore the cards and come up with your own keywords, meanings and associations, here are some of my own ideas and notes.
The Knight of Cups is the card of the “hopeless romantic.” He represents things poetic, idealistic, warm and sensitive. Unlike the Page of this suit, who bears his cup in an almost shy or tentative manner, this Knight wears his heart on his sleeve.
Turning up, as it did, on this Wednesday of Holy Week, The Hierophant reminded me of the value of formal religious practices and traditions.
The Fool is the card of following one’s bliss. The character on this card is living entirely in the present moment, utterly detached from consequences or outcomes.
When this card turned up a week and a half ago, I wrote about it representing things that are hidden, and said that its message is to not fear digging deep. Perhaps another message is that we should remain open and receptive to whatever light comes our way, and to do our best to reflect it for others.
