The Boy Finds His Heartâ€” Prince of Cups

I ask to see a year into the futureâ€¦late Summer or Autumn of next year. I want to know what happens to my Prince of Swords.
And this is the card that comes. The Prince of Cups. Of all the cardsâ€¦.
Itâ€™s incredible to me, the difference in a year. He is the same man and yet, everything is different.
He is no longer super-serious. Â Thereâ€™s a lightness to his being as I pour myself a second glass of merlot. Al- though time has passed, he Â actually feels younger now, more playful. More heart-oriented.
Iâ€™m drawn again to his feet. Though he is stepping into a lighter realm, his is no longer walking our of darkness or along a shaded path. Â His feet are on a path of light and moving forward. Heâ€™s come over a hill, yes, and out of the woods, but the path is clear and bright and quite lush and lovely.
The creek beside him, filled with the water of emotion, flows Â freely. Â The Â fields Â are Â aglow Â with Â blooming flowers and Â fertile and filled with promise fulfilled. The cup of emotion in his receptive hand is glowing and out- pouring, Â now Â willing Â to Â accept Â relationshipsÂ Â and Â joy, while his right fist is no longer so seemingly tight.
He wears a gentle, loving blue. The color of serenity and peace at last. And this time, the cloak he shows the world matches the real him Â underneath. Thereâ€™s a sense of wholeness, completeness.
This is a man who has come to terms with his loving emotions Â and Â carries Â them Â forth Â into Â joy Â and Â into Â a brighter future.
What a Â difference Â this Â card Â makes Â when Â it Â moves from action into feeling!
