DAILY TAROT CARD
QUEEN OF CUPS
Cups represent the water signs: Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.
The Queen of Cups is a spiritual bestower and motherly figure who is tied to emotions and the senses. The mature energy of the Queen of Cups Tarot carries with it a nurturing, maternal quality that makes her empathetic with the values of nurture, care and compassion. She channels unconditional love and creativity.
Queen of cups represents an inward focus and finding strength in the waters within. The Queen is our deepest compassion and source of honoring what she sees within.
The feminine, nurturing queen attitude of self-care reminds us to take a moment for ourselves and honor our deep emotions as well as understanding ourselves more deeply.
This card is water, living water, springtime in every sense of the word. If you want change, or to create something new, you need to feel it before you can move with it, love it before you can find peace in it.
Above all, the Queen’s happiest purpose in life is one of creative productivity and she inspires you to create as well.
MAY 2023 LUNAR CALENDAR
FRIDAY, MAY 18: NEW MOON IN TAURUS Your safety depends on the need for stability, which is not easy to satisfy now. You have to learn to accept change as part of your life. The basic problem is finding your own self-respect in order to ensure that you do not mistakenly seek it in material things. When you accept yourself for who you are, it will become easier for you to find peace and tranquility in the outside world.
SATURDAY, MAY 27: FIRST QUARTER MOON IN VIRGO Your feeling of safety is now related to order and clarity, even in emotions. You may have the need to organize everything chaotic and disorganized. Try being more tolerant and accepting the imperfections of life. It is better to trust life and let it run its own way, not everything must be according to our expectations.
