The Seven of Cups is a strange card, and I still remember the times it has been active in my life. On one of the more recent occasions, I'd realised there is a major connection between this card and a condition called limerence. This is a label for when we get seriously obsessed with someone. It's like we fall in love with love itself. We can be consumed with the desire to merge with the object of our beloved. We can't get them out of our heads and everything else in life gets shoved to one side, or should I say the other side of the universe? In the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight, we can see the image closely resembles that of a painting of the old Greek mortal Narcissus.Read More

This can be the knight in shining armour. He understands without you having to say anything at all. The King of Cups can represent someone who is very much in tune with his feminine side. I've had some odd results from the king and have often found him to represent a man that has split himself in two. He will show up frequently when triangles are in play and will signify that although his heart yearns to be with his beloved - he feels unable to break away from his responsibilities and commitments. He always signifies a man that is in touch with his emotional self yet action needs to be seen elsewhere in the reading to establish how a relationship with this person will progress. Most will suggest this card represents a man that is kind, caring and sensitive; I say be careful until you know the story behind him.Read More
Sometimes this can represent a woman that is emotional in nature. Other cards around will indicate whether this person has good or not so good intentions but one thing is clear she is not a neutral party. Feelings are involved which means opinions are too, there is sensitivity present. There can be a lot of projection that takes place when this card appears. It may not be clear on whether you're seeing a person or situation as they truly are. If a situation seems to be all good or all bad, then there's a big chance you're not owning something inside yourself. A lot that is taking place right now may well be unconscious. Make sure you clarify what others are aware of. Don't assume anything until it is spoken out loud.Read More
With the Prince, we are entering into the stage where we fall in love. Trust is established, and there is a desire to move forward towards intimacy. Sometimes the prince can be unreliable; his heart can be fickle, trust your emotions. As with all court cards, the level of personal development can be crucial in working out how the card will manifest. In someone who is emotionally well developed, this card is likely to indicate the best possible expression and suggests someone who is artistic, visionary and creative. At the lowest end of the scale, he could still be charming, he'll say all the right things yet never deliver what he's promised.
The Princess of Cups can often indicate the birth of new feelings, yet there is frailty here, things need to be nurtured, and trust is only just beginning to form. Feelings are genuine. This card will often indicate that someone is ready to open their heart and love again. It doesn't just have to be about romance and can suggest new friendships too but with depth. There's nothing superficial here and whoever it represents genuinely does care. The Princess of Cups will often signify a period where we are learning to feel secure in the company of others.Read More
