Card of the Day 9

Each day, I will draw a card from a different deck and post here my reflections

Seven of Cups: Robin Wood

The first card I drew today was the 7 Pentacles, which was also yesterday’s card.  So I laid that to one side and drew another. When that also proved to be a 7, I thought it would be wise to mention the relationship between cards of the same number presenting together.

Sevens relate to the querent coming through a period of flux or adjustment, towards the completion that comes with the 10’s.   So when 2 present side by side, one reinforces the other.

The pentacles relate to the physical world, finances, security and spiritual matters; the cups refer to the world of emotions and relationships. The cups following on from the pentacles in this case suggests that the physical harvest that the pentacles relate to is connected to the emotions and relationships of the querent.

Today’s image shows a young woman daydreaming; she is building castles in the air. Is this time wasted when there is work to be done? Not necessarily so, in some cultures it is believed that we can literally dream our futures.

Everybody dreams and it is our dreams which inspire us to do our best work.  One person may dream of being a writer and go on to write a best seller. Another may dream of being a doctor and go on to develop a life saving procedure.

I mentioned the relationship aspect of cups and one might reasonably consider that only if the querent’s personal relationships (or one in particular) are healthy might the promise of the 7 Pentacles will be brought to fruition.

French writer Antoine de Saint Exupery said “To love is not to look at one another: it is to look, together, in the same direction.”  Being in a healthy relationship, where each helps the other achieve their dreams, can be a vital component of achieving one’s potential.

When 7 Cups strolls into your cards, remember: it is important to dream our dreams, for only then might we achieve our potential.  Having dreamed the dream, we must do all that we can to bring that dream into the world of reality, so that we might build our castles upon solid ground.
