Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. –Lao Tzu
The Knight of Cups is a bit of a romantic, but she is sure-footed in reality, too. This week is about balance but also reaching a point where it is time to change the direction of your steps or to follow a new way the path winds. There will be a burst of energy as you are living your passion and just being uniquely you. You have had your experience and are aware of where you came from, possessing a healthy, hopeful vantage point from which to step into the future, signified by the water behind our Knight and the path ahead of her. This is the sweet spot between what she knows and what she has yet to experience.
This is a good moment to gracefully shift perspective, particularly in the realms of connection and finance. You’re so open to balance you may feel inclined to risk a bit of yourself and your dreams to make sure the dreams and desires of others are honored. The concept of desire is strong here, as our Knight toasts from the experience of the past… she seems to wish both herself and her audience the best forward. This pose and sense of balance is a crucial element to honor this week or risk a release of tension as to how to get what we desire. We can avoid this by lovingly challenging ourselves to step out of our comfort zones.
The Knight of Cups’ cane has its practical purpose, but she does not rely solely upon it. Take your balance, take your strength, take your courage, and shift your shoe. Step forward. Accept the toast with grace. Encourage where encourage may be needed, be it yourself or a friend, but remember your footing.
There is a call to adventure you feel. If there is anything you’ve been overdoing, ease up on it. Look a little more at what has been missing—talents you may have neglected, dreams undernourished… I have no questions for you. I only ask that you pause and reflect on this sweet spot of being in tune with where you are and how you are.
