SEVEN OF CUPS in The RIDER WAITE Deck of Tarot Cards
Choices, decisions, focus, confusion, unknown.
Colours and Symbols
There is a lot of blue in the card, which usually symbolises logic and communication. The cups are all offering a lot of different choices, which need to be viewed with both emotion and logic.
There is a lot of confusion and lack of focus with card. There are a lot of choices, each of which could bring satisfaction in their own way. There is the dragon for wisdom, the snake for sexuality, the house for the home and also for fairy-tale-castle-in the-air- ideas, jewels for wealth, the wreath for success, the mask for identity and the shrouded cloth for something completely unknown.
It is important to be clear on what you really want and what you want to feel and experience. It is also vital that you explore your motives for taking certain actions. Some of your choices may appear easier than others. Beware of false promises from others and maybe not being entirely honest with yourself over your motivations.
If there are too many choices, there is a risk of errors of judgment. Give careful consideration to all options and certainly sleep on big decisions before rushing in.
This can be a time of a bit of an identity crisis, a loss of confidence, perhaps feeling undermined and inadequate. This can be as a result of a rigid structure falling apart and now there are so many more opportunities that you do not know which way to turn.
It may also be that you are indulging in wishful thinking and daydreaming and lacking focus and action towards your dreams and goals. There is often a decision and a commitment that does need to be made. You can get as much information as possible, however you may still end up making that decision with an unknown quantity in place.
Sometimes it is not possible to know everything in advance especially if you are stepping into unknown territory.
With abundant blessings.
