In this card; we see the adult sharing her cup with a child. Around them are the five other cups all filled with flowers. This indicates a coming together of tradition with new ideas, a blending and harmonizing of energies. This card reminds us to breathe new life into stalemated endeavors and also reminds us not to let the past determine our future. This is the teacher and student coming together, a positive blend of logic and intuition – analytical skill and creative energies.
Position 1: Background | Present Concern
You are in a period of change, reevaluation of the past and deciding how to proceed now. This is a period where you are both the student and the teacher.
Position 2: Your Drive and Motivations
You are wanting to put the past behind you and move on with the future. Incorporating all of your past experience into a new venture.
Position 3: What’s Blocking You – Fears and Subconscious
You are doubting your ability to be successful in a new endeavor. Questioning your decisions. Not being able to achieve your goals as quickly or easily as you had hoped. Past experiences may color your perception of current events, blocking you from needed information or potential opportunities.
Position 4: Perspective and Further Awareness – What you Need to See Clearly
You tend to feel as though you are misunderstood or that you have a hard time getting your ideas across to people effectively. You need to remember that your individuality is a gift. You are a living expression of the creative forces of the Universe. Relax and enjoy. Your fresh new ideas will meet with success if you allow yourself to be carried by the flow.
Position 5: Course of Action
Learn to let go of struggling to figure out the right plan. Letting things be as they are will open the mind to all possibilities and ensure success. Decisions have a strange way of making themselves when the time is right. Try to maintain a balance between “logic” and ‘intuition” when determining your course of action.
