“The more of me I be,
The clearer I can see.”
~ Rachel Archelaus

Who are you… really? This is question you must answer for yourself when the 7 of Cups shows up. Your lack of clarity about this is could be leading you down many a path of dissolution, destruction and addiction.

When you know and joyfully accept that you are a child of the Divine, that you were born for a life purpose and that your highest joy is to serve the Light, those other paths will begin to fade.

Affirmation: “I am the best, most authentic me today.”

The 7 of Cups in Love and Relationships

There may be delusion and confusion but no intentional deceit with this card. The energy of this card is an expression of an overflow of subconscious material floating to the surface and the clear skies of the mind to mist over.


There is a need to withdraw, reflect and meditate. Meditations on being the Observer is highly recommended. Becoming the Observer is a process of detachment which enables a bird’s eye perspective. Study the work and philosophy of transpersonal psychologist and father of Psychosynthesis, Roberto Assagioli, if you are interested in learning more about this.

Be understanding of your partner if this card shows up for him/her as it means that they are in a deep process of transformation. Give him/her all the space they need and show your support without pressing for communication since it’s not likely that they are at the stage where they have clear enough understanding of what’s going on to put words on it.
