king of cups

This reading will use the same cards as Reading 12 and addresses the locations that I will be happiest living and working.

The Setup

For this reading we will be using the following cards..

The King and Queen of Each Suit
0 Fool
XXI World

Shuffle the cards, concentrating on the question. When done dealing, deal out the top card and each consecutive card until you reach either the Fool or the World.

The Question: Where will I be happiest living?

The Deal
Queen of Coins
King of Cups
King of Wands
XXI World

The Answer

You will be happiest up in the hills, somewhere where no one can reach you. Consider heading back east. You will live in the place of your dreams.

The Cards

Queen of Coins

My take: A woman in a green dress, she is in the forest and carrying flowers. Nature is prevalent. She is wearing a crown of coins. This woman enjoys nature and the luxuries of life. She looks off into the distance instead of at us, seeming to mean she would like to be elsewhere.

The card: The queen of coins has a great appreciation for the finer things in life. She nurtures others as well as herself and enjoys creating a beautiful, serene and loving environment for the ones she loves.

King of Cups

My take: The King has strong sensitive eyes. There is a large cup in front of him surrounded by the crashing waves of the ocean. It’s like he expects something from you, like he wants the best from you. Very fatherly.

The card: The king of cups is in charge of taking all the deepest emotions and intuitions and turning them into concrete actions. He is an emotional counselor or mediator. You need to take charge of your emotional life and communicate your feelings.

King of Wands

My take: I can’t get over the crown on this guy. It is garish and imposing and kinda scary with its spikes and size. His eyes are powerful and he has a set determination that cannot be ignored. It’s like he is staring you down, waiting for you to do as he wants.

The card: The king of wands makes a difference in the world and represents politicians and leaders of all kinds. And as we see these type of people, the king is charismatic and controlling. He must control his environment and seeks to convince the world to see things his way.

XXI World

My take: The four elements (air, water, fire and earth) come together around the stars and the earth. It’s like everything is coming together as it should. Everything is aligned.

The card: Enlightenment, Completions.  But with enlightenment comes new beginnings.  Being truly enlightened also means knowing and living within your limitations and circumstances.

Reading Analysis

Well,  I would be really curious to see what method this author uses for her answers.  Not that they are wrong or don’t fit the cards, they usually do, but I am curious.  

With this reading, the answer is a little farther out than most, but I can see what the cards mean.  I can see that nature and solitude would come up for me on a place to live, although I do wonder if it was referring to a vacation for me.  I have been talking a lot lately about how I just need to get away for a little while.  Maybe a trip alone to the mountains of the east would be a good move.

I certainly like the fact that it said I will live in the place of my dreams.  I can’t wait to see where that is.
