THE QUEEN OF CUPS

Esoteric Title: Queen of the Thrones of Waters
Elemental Attributions: Water (cold, wet) of Water
Elemental Combination: Understanding strengthens the Emotions

   Your ally gazes intently at her cup, which looks like both a church and a strange sea creature, the angels on either side of the cup resembling lobster claws. Her foot touches the water, which seems to flow up her dress into her cape and back down onto the colorful rocks at the foot of her throne. She is receptive to the vast cosmic energies symbolized by the sea, and because of her sympathetic, intelligent connection she receives the gift of vision. Her cup resembles the spiritual forces that she channels, suggesting that true spiritual power is often wild and astonishing, even bewildering, manifesting in unpredictable, disconcerting ways. Spiritual art throughout the ages has tended to rely on acceptable, conventional forms--her imagination provides a sympathetic connection that embodies the inner and outer forces in bold, original form. Though on land, enthroned in the conscious mind, her ability to connect emotionally enables her to invoke the cosmic spiritual forces and manifest them in fresh, startling ways. The cherubic mermaids on her throne suggest her playful, childlike openness--she allows herself like a child to be embraced by the powerful, subtle forces. Your ally is a magician and an artist of both heart and imagination. Both qualities are needed if creative work of any kind is to have a significant impact.

QUALITIES: Loving, receptive to subtle energies, creative, emotional, imaginative, honest, original, sympathetic--her ability to connect emotionally enables her to invoke cosmic spiritual forces and manifest them in fresh, startling ways.
