Divinatory Meaning: Dreams, castles in the air. Illusionary success. Selfish dissipation; deception.
Reversed: Good resolutions. Slight success must be followed up. New will and determination.
"We do not like always moving in the river, so we dig a hole and make a tiny little pool along the edge to get out of the ceaseless flow.
Not a living pool, full of vital processes, cycles of new growth and decay, but completely stagnant: so sheltered and protected that it becomes static; the life goes out of it, the living thoughts and feeling die. Certainly it is safe and secure...
We have created such insulation betwen the whole of life and ourselves---not just a thin membrane, but a whole suit of armor---because we do not want to face impermanence and experience suffering, especially the suffering of others."
---Dennis Genpo Merzel: The Eye Never Sleeps

23 Oct 2005 @ 00:10 by : I believe that there are many meanings
and interpretations to the Tarot and that is what makes this journey so interesting and challenging. For me, the "VII of Cups" represent the knowledge of opening the seven Chakras. While this Card is part of the Minor Arcana, our egos are still blinded by the Light, so we are unaware of these energy centers. But, the Fool will continue on life's journey until Freedom is achieved and the veils are removed.
