House of the true heart, joy, content, abode, nourishment, abundance, fertility; Holy Table, felicity hereof. Reversed – house of the false heart, mutation, instability, revolution.
And today we have the Two of Cups. As usual, I give Waite’s vision of the card, ie: Love, passion, friendship, affinity, union, concord, sympathy, the interrelation of the sexes, and – as a suggestion apart from all offices of divination – that desire which is not in Nature, but by which Nature is sanctified. […]
The conclusion of any matter in plenty, perfection and merriment; happy issue, victory, fulfilment, solace, healing. Reversed – expedition, dispatch, achievement, end. It signifies also the side of excess in physical enjoyment, and the pleasures of the senses.
And today’s card is the Four of Cups. A bit how I’m feeling today. Waite gives this card’s description as: Weariness, disgust, aversion, imaginary vexations, as if the wine of this world had caused satiety only; another wine, as if a fairy gift, is now offered the wastrel, but he sees no consolation therein. This is […]
Today’s card is the Five of Cups. As usual, we’ll start with Waite’s view on the card: It is a card of loss, but something remains over; three have been taken, but two are left; it is a card of inheritance, patrimony, transmission, but not corresponding to expectations; with some interpreters it is a card […]

Another reading reverses this, giving new relations, new knowledge, new environment, and then the children are disporting in an unfamiliar precinct. Reversed – the future, renewal, […]
And today, we have the Seven of Cups. Waite’s interpretation of this card is: Fairy favours, images of reflection, sentiment, imagination, things seen in the glass of contemplation; some attainment in these degrees, but nothing permanent or substantial is suggested. Reversed – desire, will, determination, project. Again, I go along mostly with Waite’s feelings on […]
Waite’s direction for the Eight of Cups is: The card speaks for itself on the surface, but other readings are entirely antithetical, giving joy, mildness. timidity, honour. modesty, marriage with a fair woman. Reversed – Great joy, happiness, feasting. I have to say that I agree somewhat with the first part, in that the card […]
Contentment, repose of the entire heart; the perfection of that state; also perfection of human love and friendship; if with several picture-cards, a person who is taking charge of the Querent’s interests; also the town, village or country inhabited by the Querent. Reversed – repose of the false heart, indignation, violence.
