At the beginning of the week, the Queen of Cups comes out from the Mermaid Tarot. This Queen is Mermaid with the wings of a butterfly, adorned with shells holding her chalice. Her realm is emotions, relationships, and matters of the heart and has a soft voice. Mermaids were not the only mythical beings of the sea. There were water sprites, fairies, and other beings. There is a legend that the selkies in Ireland and Scotland could shed their skins and go ashore in human form even to marry. If anyone took their seal garb, they would have power over them and they could not return to the sea. A movie called the The Secret of Roan Inish weaves a story around that theme. There is a calm, dreamy, and otherworldly quality about this Queen.
This Mermaid Queen can help you take a current relationship to a new level. She is asking you to so slow down, come closer to hear and trust your own guidance and intuition. Her astrological correspondence is Cancer which is ruled by the Moon with a sprinkle of Gemini, a skilled communicator. Her’s is the 4th house in Astrology, home and family. She is adaptable, comfortable in water or land but always returns to the ocean to restore her soul. She reminds you to open and listen to the music of your heart to receive and find ways daily to nurture yourself and others. As the tides ebb and flow so do our emotions, and cycles of life. The Queen of Cups can help you dive deeper into your inner World where you can float for a time to find the answers and you will know when it is time to swim ashore. “A little sand between the toes always takes away the woes.” https://youtu.be/Or532mgyZFw
