Dark young man, faithful, a lover, an envoy, a postman. Beside a man, he will bear favourable testimony concerning him. A dangerous rival, if followed by the Page of Cups. Has the chief qualities of his suit. He may signify family intelligence. Reversed – anecdotes, announcements, evil news. Also indecision and the instability which accompanies […]
Today’s card is the Knight of Wands. As usual, I’ll give Waite’s interpretation of the card, which is: Departure, absence, flight, emigration. A dark young man, friendly. Change of residence. A bad card, according to some readings; alienation. Reversed – rupture, division, interruption, discord. For a woman, marriage probably frustrated. People probably think that I should […]
Dark woman, countrywoman, friendly, chaste, loving, honourable. If the card beside her signifies a man, she is well disposed towards him; if a woman, she is interested in the Querent. Also, love of money, or a certain success in business. Reversed – good, economical, obliging, serviceable. Signifies also – but in certain positions and in […]
Dark man, friendly, countryman, generally married, honest and conscientious. The card always signifies honesty, and may mean news concerning an unexpected heritage to fall in before very long. Reversed – good, but severe; austere, yet tolerant.
Today I drew the Page of Cups. Waite ascribes the following meanings to this card: Fair young man, one impelled to render service and with whom the Querent will be connected; a studious youth; news, message; application, reflection, meditation; also these things directed to business. Reversed: Taste, inclination, attachment, seduction, deception, artifice. From looking at the […]
Arrival, approach–sometimes that of a messenger; advances, proposition, demeanour, invitation, incitement. Reversed – trickery, artifice, subtlety, swindling, duplicity, fraud.
Good, fair woman; honest, devoted woman, who will do service to the Querent; loving intelligence, and hence the gift of vision; success, happiness, pleasure; also wisdom, virtue; a perfect spouse and a good mother. Reversed – the accounts vary; good woman; otherwise, distinguished woman but one not to be trusted; perverse woman; vice, dishonour, depravity.
Today’s card is the King of Cups. All of the court cards in the suit of cups, in my mind, reflect some form of dysfunctionality. All cups cards deal with emotion, and the King of Cups is a very emotional card. The king sits on a throne, away from the choppy waters around him; trying […]
Authority, overseeing, secret service, vigilance, spying, examination, and the qualities thereto belonging. Reversed – more evil side of these qualities; what is unforeseen, unprepared state; sickness is also intimated.
Skill, bravery, capacity, defence, address, enmity, wrath, war, destruction, opposition, resistance, ruin. There is therefore a sense in which the card signifies death, but it carries this meaning only in its proximity to other cards of fatality. Reversed – imprudence, incapacity, extravagance.
