PLANET: Mercury



Propositions - Imagination - Quiet Grace - Enthusiasm

Fresh ideas - Sentiment - Romance

Any Spirit turning up in a Reading should be closely observed to determine if their energy is helping or hurting.  Action of some sort is usually required of you when a Spirit appears and does not represent a person. The particular action will be determined by the Governing Suit and Element of The Spirit involved.

The Spirit of Cups, appearing in a reading tells of a focus on imagination and inspiration.

The truth is that the Spirit of Cups is the most feminine amongst all the Son cards in the tarot. It's important to note though, that this doesn’t even slightly suggest that he is any less of a worthy knight. It implies that he is in proper touch with his emotions and his intuition, and that he uses them for his own well-being and during his many romance and seduction quests. He is usually quite attractive and charming to others, regardless of their gender. 

If you are female, the Spirit of Cups appearing in a reading may be indicating that you will be receiving some attention from a particular potential partner, or at the very least, a male admirer.

If you happen to meet or already have just met someone who is trustworthy, imaginative and genuine, you're urged to accept their help as it comes with the best of intentions.


Fickle - Unreliable - Trickery - Subtlety - Duplicity

The reversed Spirit of Cups warns you to be wary when becoming involved in new romantic relations. Keep hold of your heart and don’t become too emotionally invested too quickly.  Keep your cool and see how it goes with time.

this card may be telling you that you need to look at all angles of a situation before committing to anything or anyone. Use caution and listen to your intuition, that is your strength now.
