In addition, it means for love: I like the way you kiss – a couple of test kisses, then a huge kiss.

Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: He holds a short scepter in his left hand and a great cup in his right, his throne is set upon the sea, on one side a ship is riding and on the other a dolphin is leaping. The implicit is that the Sign of the Cup naturally refers to water, which appears in all the court cards.

In relation to love and feelings, this card has additional arcanum: Thank god he’s holding me because if he weren’t, I’d float away like a large happily smiling ballon.

Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: A lithe, active figure holds a sword upright in both hands, while in the act of swift walking. He is passing over rugged land, and about his way the clouds are collocated wildly. He is alert and lithe, looking this way and that, as if an expected enemy might appear at any moment.


Classic meanings: Between the alternative readings there is no marriage possible, on the one hand, riches, fortune, magnificence, on the other, physical suffering, disease, chagrin, sadness, mortification. The design gives one suggestion, here is a lord overlooking his dominion and alternately contemplating a globe, it looks like the malady, the mortification, the sadness of Alexander amidst the grandeur of this world’s wealth.

In addition, it means for love: He will look at you with serious eyes, but not the kind that makes you wonder what you’d done wrong. The kind that makes you wonder what you’d done right.

Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: A tall man looks from a battlemented roof over sea and shore, he holds a globe in his right hand, while a staff in his left rests on the battlement, another is fixed in a ring. The Rose and Cross and Lily should be noticed on the left side.

This is it for today, traveler.

May the Gods of arcane grant you all your wishes.

May the Love divine be your daily companion.
