“Our bodies have five senses: touch, smell, taste, sight, hearing. But not to be overlooked are the senses of our souls: intuition, peace, foresight, trust, empathy. The differences between people lie in their use of these senses; most people don’t know anything about the inner senses while a few people rely on them just as they rely on their physical senses, and in fact probably even more.”
― C. JoyBell C.
When a Queen shows up in a Tarot reading, she often brings a message of nurturing and with the Queen of Cups, what ought to be nurtured is our inner senses. We do this naturally as children… we hum to ourselves, daydreaming and doodling… we skip along the forest path looking for fairies, not yet realising that these activities are considered useless in the eyes of the world…
The Queen of Cups offers you a cup of inspiration today. What does it taste like? What will you explore and nurture within? What creative pursuits will blossom from this?
Queen of Cups Prayer
Dear Mother-Father God (or whichever higher power you acknowledge), I ask for the grace to stay inspired to value my inner senses equally alongside my five senses today. Help me to not limit myself. Re-open the eyes of my heart and clear the lens of my third eye. Help me to pay attention to and honour the whispers of the soul. Guide me to the people and pursuits that will help bring my inner and outer world into balance. So mote it be!
