The Seven of Cups depicts temptations. The man in the RWS version of the card is awed by the fantastic visions before him. There are so many options that he doesn’t know which to choose. But these are just fantasies. There’s no real choice here. Nothing is as it seems. This is wishful thinking. When the Seven of Cups appears, you should be wary of making any choices. It might seem that you have lots of enticing options, but these are just illusions. There’s nothing permanent, or substantial here.
Samhain is the Irish word for Halloween. This is when we celebrate the end of summer and the start of the dark half of the year. Many of you reading this will already have your own Samhain traditions and ways of celebrating Halloween. The veil between our physical, material world and the spirit world is at its thinnest at this time of year. We can feel the change starting to happen in the weeks leading up to Samhain and many of us feel more ‘witchy’ during this time. This is when we want to get back to basics and be more practical in our witchcraft.
The Six of Cups is a positive omen. If you’re wondering about the outcome of a situation, the Six of Cups indicates that the situation will work out positively, in your favour. If you’re reading about a problem, then you should look to your childhood to find the root of the problem. This will help guide you to the solution. You may have drawn this card to encourage you to review something in your past. Someone from your past may come back into your life. There’s a sense here of the past being in the present. The past is influencing the present situation.
