Everyday Tarot, 07/02/11: Slow Down, Nellie! Rev. Knight of Cups

rev-knight-swords-radiant-rwsHow was your Eclipse? Did it get your emotional water flowing? Spend any time alone? I was swamped with stimuli—decidedly emotional, but my Gemini moon thought it out anyway—and am pretty sure it will be a while before it’s all sorted for me. That’s not bad. Just is, you know?

The card today was perfect companion for sorting, with a side advisory note.

Today’s Tarot forecast is the inverted Knight of Cups or “Prince of the Chariot of the Waters, associated with Air in Water. Generally for the Knight of Cups, the intellect (Air) supports emotions (Water), but inverted, something may be off balance. Don’t get so drunk you fall off your horse!

Issues that have an emotional punch can easily knock us off balance, you know? That doesn’t mean we’re messing up, or not handling our emotional business reasonably. It means we have feelings—sometimes, strong ones. It takes time to understand them, process and let the dust kicked up settle back down.

Today, go easy on yourself emotionally. Allow information surrounding emotional issues time to sink in, process and settle down. Don’t assume how you feel this minute is how you’re going to be feeling new year, next month or even next week. Just slow down, breathe, and let understanding flow in like the sunrise, lifting over some mountains. All does happen in the right time, even if it doesn’t feel so much like that in the moment.

Did you get some emotional punch for your eclipse?

  1. This is so beautiful (even if bittersweet)…

    That last paragraph could be a poem. Classic DIXIE.

    I did need to get a little drunk to make it through yesterday, but still surviving. I’m like “Oh, come on, it wasn’t that bad…” And yes, I’m always trying to see things as if they are the next chapter in my Life 101 textbook.

  2. Some one left the cake out in the rain, I don’t think that I can take it, cause it took so long to bake it and I’ll never have that recipe again . . . .

  3. I did, unfortunately.

  4. Ack. Punch indeed. VERY emotional yesterday morning – weeping – which is rare for me.
    In the afternoon, ended up going back to the dr. – more antibiotics, stronger inhaler. Can’t breathe well.
    Too much water here.
