U.R. has submitted the above cards for interpretation. The first three cards are the “heart” of the reading and are read as a unit. Then, the fourth card is drawn and read as a summary or clarifier. Since two out of the first three are cups, it is safe to say this reading focuses on feelings, emotions, relationships, and psychic abilities. It isn’t until we get to the summary card that we have two fives (Kings are fives; 14=1+4=5), but there is a distinctive “five” flavor to this reading as well. Five is the number of freedom and choosing, so this reading also reminds us that we always have choices and more than one way to go.
The spotlight has been on the ace of cups, a triumph of being. U.R., you are someone with whom people like to spend time, not because of anything in particular that you say and/or do but because you make people feel better about being who they are; you are an uplifter. You shower blessings on your environment and those who are in it.
The spotlight is now on the king of cups, master of the realm containing everything related to the suit of cups. U.R., you are perfectly balanced and ride the ups and downs of this watery kingdom and never even get your foot wet. Sometimes the drama queens and kings accuse you of not caring because you tend not to take sides, but you are calm and competent, strong and gentle.
The spotlight is moving toward the Hanged Man, the suspension of action. Even though there seems to be nothing happening in large quantities, there is a great deal going on at the internal level. You will be taking a “time out” to readjust and refresh your perspective, and when you are ready, you will right yourself and continue on your journey.
The summary card is the five of cups, mourning a loss. This card contains a major theme of the tarot, resource is always at hand. The spilled cups look like they used to hold water and/or wine; both of these may be had again by using nearby sources. This loss can be anything from missing something/someone who used to be there all the way up to the death of a loved one. Wisdom dictates being gentle with yourself, acknowledging the reality of what is, and allowing enough time to grieve. The most important next step, however, is to turn and appreciate the two cups that are still standing. Being grateful for what you have establishes the vibration that invites even more to flow into your life. Just as your initials, U.R., make a statement, so this reading reassures you of the high quality of your influence that will allow you to grow and thrive and overcome any temporary losses. Blessings to you, U.R..
