A happy reminder from the cards: King, Queen, and Knight of Cups
Moved to tears. This whole trip I’ve been so rooted in the present moment and the deep energy of experiencing a new place that I haven’t been drawn to my cards. After hiking a beautiful trail to a whimsical run down lighthouse, I suddenly felt drawn to pull some cards. I pulled two: the King and the Queen of Cups. After returning to the shore, I pulled one more card: the Knight of Cups.
Returning to the ocean has been such a beautifully meaningful experience. I know this water and feel that I’m a part of it. At the same time, I’m a Pisces rising and I hate being IN the water. I’m here at the ocean and I refuse to go in. There’s some deep medicine at work here: until now, I would have told anyone that I was incredibly emotionally literate. In fact, ‘feeling witch’ resonates with the work I do here with tarot as well as in my day job.
That said, I’m uncomfortable and still harshly judge my own emotionality. I am horrified that the waves of my emotions will sweep me under the surface or that the deep undercurrent with carry me too far away from my comfort. I’m proud of my my air sign affiliation, but deep within me in courses a wild and treacherous ocean of feels. I feel called now—reminded, perhaps—to delve deeply into that water.
Who knows, maybe one day I’ll even be able to jump into the ocean of my outer self as well.
