Today’s card is the Ten of Cups, also known as the Lord of Satiety or the Lord of Perpetual Success. Cups represent the Element of Water which rules over the heart and matters of love, friendship, compassion, and healing, charm, beauty, entertainment, and the arts, including the Occult. Thus, while Fire is the Creative Force, Water is the emotion that inspires us to Create. All art forms use symbolism, whether through paint, music, poetry, acting, or dance, which in turn connects with the subconscious mind, where magick occurs.
This card comes to herald success and denotes good fortune and success. If you have matters in the balance, this card indicated that the scales are tipping in your favor and you will ultimately be successful in your endeavor.
On the flip side, this card can also indicate a bit of quarreling coming from sheer boredom. If you are bored out of your mind today, picking a fight is a bad way to alleviate this. Also, as you can see in the picture of a goblet overflowing with wine, this card represents over indulgence. Don’t go wild and end up at the casino or drinking the day away to alleviate your boredom. Expensive habits are costly in more ways than one. Try getting out, reading a book, or watching your favorite old movie.
This card is associated with the home and its FEEL. When we decorate our homes, we can weave different Elements into our lives by choosing colors for our design patterns that create harmonious surroundings or a creative frame of mind. In this way, each of us can weave a little magick into our homes or offices in a practical way without putting a sign on our front door that says; “The Witch is In”. As you look around your home or business, ask yourself,
“How do I want people to feel when they enter this room?”
“What goals would I like to work on in this space?”
Then follow this simple color chart to add some magickal energy to that space. Inexpensive items can be found at your thrift store or dollar store, but can make a great addition to your home or office and add new energy into your life.
