“Love is always bestowed as a gift – freely, willingly and without expectation. We don’t love to be loved; we love to love.” –Leo Buscaglia
“Should” is a very powerful word—when applied to ourselves, it can either light a path or condemn our missteps. When applied to others, it can bring contentment, or, perhaps more likely, disappointment. What to do with that pesky old, “should” anyway?
Today’s Tarot Forecast is the Knight of Cups or “Prince of the Chariot of the Waters.” Associated with Air in Water, remember that thoughts modify the emotional responses. I often see the knight with emotional flux—all the Tarot knights tend to show up for me when situations are not stable. Knights also tend to be idealistic and impulsive, so I look for similar qualities in the energy surrounding them.
I know, I go back and forth. I know, my stance changes as I process, forget, remember, revisit and readjust my thinking on emotionally charged issues. I go in, with an open heart, but the mind is not always so willing. It bends and sways and flutters about, and my heart follows.
The Knight of Cups reminds me that my emotions are fluid, and heavily colored by my thoughts. I can set “should” aside for “is”—being, knowing, and best I can, living in the now. That doesn’t mean injuries cease to exist, or the painful suddenly becomes soothing.
Mostly, he tells me I get to decide how much emotional baggage I’m taking with me on the trip. Maybe time to pull out some of those spare outfits. The case gets kind of heavy. My arm’s tired. I just worry, though…if I clean it all the way out, am I going to be caught unprepared? Because there is a reason, those outfits are in there. Cleaning out the bag is a tradeoff.
What does the Knight of Cups have to say to you?
