The Boy Finds His Heart— Prince of Cups
Copyrighted by Lorna Tedder. Originally published in Third Degree Tilt.
I ask to see a year into the future…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 cards….
It’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. There’s a lightness to his being as I pour myself a second glass of merlot. Al- though time has passed, he actually feels younger now, more playful. More heart-oriented.
I’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. His feet are on a path of light and moving forward. He’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 freely. The fields are aglow with blooming flowers and fertile and filled with promise fulfilled. The cup of emotion in his receptive hand is glowing and out- pouring, now willing to accept relationships and 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 underneath. There’s a sense of wholeness, completeness.
This is a man who has come to terms with his loving emotions and carries them forth into joy and into a brighter future.
What a difference this card makes when it moves from action into feeling!
