The Majors and Minors

Shock horror! I confess! I’ve never tried to establish a relationship with the quintessential Rider Waite. My ‘Original Deck’ has sat nearby, amused, watching as I have turned to decks whose art has captured my imagination.

When I finally communed with this deck I asked what it was willing to to offer me as a writer trying to live as creatively as possible at this time.

The Page of Cups gallantly stepped forward offering to be of service and to bring messages from my dreams and intuition.

The Page of Cups represents the unexpected inspiration that comes to us from the unconscious, perhaps in ways that we may not truly understand. In this card, a youth at the seashore wears a blue tunic adorned with floral prints, and holds a golden cup. She also wears a beret that looks quite bohemian, and a long flowing scarf. She is surprised by a fish that pops out of the cup, as if to greet her from a fairytale. She can neither drink nor toast with the cup as the fish stares at her and seemingly tries to engage with her. (Labyrinthos)

It’s a no brainer! The offer one cannot refuse! It’s a deal! I’m ready to begin exploring, one card at a time for 78 days, and see where this takes me.
