#Weekly Tarot Gauge #28 May – 2 June 2017 #10 of Cups
Hi and Welcome to your Weekly Tarot Gauge!
# Ten of Cups
The 10 of Cups is the influence and inspiration of the week. The cups symbolise emotions, relationships, passion, ecstasy, matters of the heart, intuition, dreams, imagination and unconscious. The cups embody the water element. This is a slow, patient and nurturing energy. 10 is a number of completion or the end of a cycle. Life is an endless cycle of beginnings and ends.
Overall, the 10 of cups speaks to a happy home, high expectations, the rainbow that brings hope and calm after the storm, happiness, compatibility, harmonious relationships, closeness, intimacy, loving community, united country, sense of belonging, euphoria or projecting an exaggerated appearance of ‘all in well’.
I am reminded of these famous words:
‘There is no passion in playing small – in settling for a life less than the one you are capable of living.’ – Nelson Mandela
It is important to reflect on your own role in fulfilling your dreams and expectations, especially in the context of relationships. Taking responsibility for one’s own happiness is sometimes the hardest thing to do.
It’s not necessary to be the doormat of others or to seek approval by placating and pleasing. A strong relationship is resilient and can withstand and embrace differences.
Create the conditions within yourself through meditative practices for peace, harmony and joy. This increases your capacity to engage with all types of situations from a place of strength and calm.
‘What obstacles to happiness and fulfillment exists within me and how do I remove them?’
‘Am I giving my relationships the right effort and attention?’
‘Do I have clear boundaries with negative people?’
‘Do I see the glass half empty or half full?’
‘Do I lead an authentic life free of external opinions?’
The potential for living your best life exists. What is your part in getting there?
You are the Captain of your ship and Tarot is your guide.
Have brilliant week.
