Waite for It

Graceful, but not warlike; riding quietly, wearing a winged helmet, referring to those higher graces of the imagination which sometimes characterize this card. He too is a dreamer, but the images of the side of sense haunt him in his vision. Divinatory Meanings: Arrival, approach–sometimes that of a messenger; advances, proposition, demeanour, invitation, incitement. Reversed: Trickery, artifice, subtlety, swindling, duplicity, fraud. (The Pictorial Key to the Tarot)


Frideborg Figures

In the Frideborg Tarot Knight of Cups (see image at top of post), we see those ‘higher graces of the imagination’ expressed in a lyrical/musical way. When we experience an emotional lag, the fastest way to catch up is often through the arts.

For today’s Tarot Soul Coaching focus, ask yourself…

What is asking to be expressed today?

How can I make some space and time for that?

Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways. ~ Sigmund Freud Click To Tweet

When this Knight shows up for a relationship reading, romance is most definitely on the cards. If he is the love interest of the Seeker, he could signify someone who is in love with love. In a work/career reading, he favours an artistic career path or bringing more artistry and beauty to the work we do. In all types of readings, he implores with us to reach deep and connect with the reality of our emotional self, to avoid bypass or leading our lives as automatons.

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. ~ Helen Keller Click To Tweet

The archangelic Zodiac sign correspondence is Azrael (Pluto/Scorpio).
