TAROTSCOPES | APRIL 22 - APRIL 28
DAUGHTER OF CUPS
The Daughter of Cups is a well of compassion. An examiner of kindness. A bearer of bowls full to the brim with warmth. She is curious but not critical. Wondering but not necessarily wild or even wily. Extremely intelligent precisely because she is unaware of her heightenened intuitive abilities.
The Daughter of Cups informs her intrigue with her ignorance. Uses whatever she doesn’t know as inspiration to be more interested. Is talented at offering the critical perspective that comes with seeing something for the first time. And yet, she is so much more. As a court card of vessels, the Daughter of Cups gives a certain due respect to our emotions. She greets vulnerability with great consideration. She reminds us to take our feelings seriously - and to take the space to feel them before we ask for feedback from someone else. She is neither dismissive nor destructive. She devotes herself to the instructive examination of her experience, judging nothing because whatever is happening is a wonderful indication of her capacity to live and feel fully.
This week, as the Sun conjoins Uranus in Taurus, erupting through hopes and stirring up astonishment, let your feelings roll through you like ripples around a pebble that’s plopped on the surface. Stay with yourself long enough to watch the evolution of your own after effects. Notice how your emotions evolve in their own echo. How your reactions become more or less radical when you stop wrestling with a pause and instead pray inside it. Embrace the idea of being a beginner. We are able to learn so much more when we don’t directly dismiss something because we think we already understand. The Daughter of Cups does not claim rulership over her feelings. Rather, she surrenders to their lessons. Desires desperately to pull meaning from pleasure and pain on principle. Takes solace in the understanding that sometimes the answers arrive suddenly and sometimes they come with the the company of patience. Welcome whoever rings your bell with the grace of defining care with an element of curiosity.
WHAT EVEN IS A TAROTSCOPE? We often think of horoscopes as predictions that are specific to each astrological sign. In Ancient Greek, the term horoscope simply means "I watch the hour." To astrologers today, a horoscope is a chart that maps the planetary bodies in the sky. From this chart, we derive meaning that can influence how we work with energy. Regardless of our unique individual charts, we are ALL working with the same energy from above. Each week, I examine this energy, pull a tarot card and write a guided meditation with the collective in mind. My tarotscopes are meant to be read as inspiration. Please note that because we are all operating with our individual energy, some elements will resonate more than others. Take what you like and leave the rest. Tarotscopes are offered freely in an effort to cultivate collective healing. I am always grateful for your support in sharing this work with anyone you think it might help. If you are inspired or find support here, please consider making a donation to help sustain these weekly offerings.
