OCCULT: DAILY DRAW – Knight of Cups

Today’s card is the Knight of Cups.

A knight with a winged helmet rides a grey horse, carrying a large golden goblet before him. He rides slowly and steadily, in no haste, bringing good tidings with him. He is not a rider of war, but for peace.

The Knight of Cups is the kind of person who always wants to look on the bright side of things. Even in the darkest, deepest pits, this person keeps a smile upon his face and a song in his heart. Though his optimism can be welcome most of the time, it can become overbearing when in a genuinely dour situation – and heavens forbid you be around him when it finally runs out. Behind the cheery exterior lies a bubbling swamp of emotional turmoil the Knight of Cups can’t seem to work out on his own.

OCCULT: DAILY DRAW – Three of Cups

Today’s card is the Three of Cups.

Three celebrants make a toast to each other in a garden. They raise their cups high and wear garlands upon their heads. Their faces are aglow with joy.

The Three of Cups is a card of friendship, togetherness, and glee. There’s nothing better than being in the company of your best friends; their energy nourishes you, and gives you a kind of happiness that no other person can match. The Three of Cups represents the bond of friendship between a group of people that is greater than the sum of its parts. It reminds us to keep the pacts between friends strong, and always be faithful to those who are faithful to us!

OCCULT: DAILY DRAW – King of Cups

Today’s card is the King of Cups.

The King of Cups floats on a throne in the middle of the ocean, with ships sailing behind him. He holds his cup in his right hand, and a scepter in the other. He wears an ornate crown on his head, and a shark’s tooth necklace.

A King of Cups is the kind of person you turn to when you’re at your lowest. He always has a kind word, an encouraging statement, and the right attitude to get you on your feet. Unflappable even in the most dire situations, the King of Cups is a rock that everybody wants to anchor themselves to when the storms come to their lives. Unfortunately for the King, he tends to make it his mission to shore as many wayward friends as possible, stretching him to his thinnest limits.

OCCULT: DAILY DRAW – Queen of Cups

Today’s card is the Queen of Cups.

The Queen’s ornate throne is positioned by the seaside, but she prefers to gaze at her incredibly decorated cup. It’s massive, embellished with all kinds of accessories, but she sees nothing pleasureable in it. Instead, she glares at it critically, carefully appraising its true value.

The Queen of Cups is the kind of person who somehow can see past the nonsense to the truth of any matter. They aren’t impressed by flash or fluff – nothing but the centermost kernel of the issue interests them. Don’t think this makes them a bitter-hearted person; on the contrary, it provides them great compassion and tenderness to those who are in need of help but refuse to acknowledge it. In a drawing, the Queen of Cups wants you to look deeper in the issues at hand and figure out what’s really going on.

OCCULT: DAILY DRAW – Page of Cups

Today’s card is the Page of Cups.

A young person dressed in flamboyant clothing stands before the sea-side, holding a golden chalice. Inside the chalice is a small fish, which peeks out to look at the youth. The youth smiles, amused by the delightful situation before them.

The Page of Cups is, bar none, the silliest card in the deck. The Page dresses, acts, and believes in things that others find completely bizarre. They don’t care; they live life the way they care to despite any consequences. They are slow to anger and find delight in the smallest of things. Though this has its downsides, it grants them opportunities that others can never imagine… even being able to see a jolly fish in a cup.

OCCULT: DAILY DRAW – Two of Cups

Today’s card is the Two of Cups.

Two people stand in front of each other, each bearing a cup. Above them, a Caduceus floats, with the head of a lion sprouting from the top. The one on the right reaches out to the one on the left, as if to take their hand.

Though it’s no Lovers, the Two of Cups is an excellent love card. Most important is its significance as a sign of platonic love, rather than sexual or romantic. Though these two people are clearly close, they stand a good distance away from each other respectfully. The Two of Cups is a very versatile card when it comes to relationships: it can mean a friendship, a relationship on the cusp of becoming something larger, or even a romance being kept at arm’s length. No matter the details of the love, Two of Cups is without a doubt the second-most lovey-dovey card in the deck!

OCCULT: Daily Draw – Four of Cups

Today’s card is the Four of Cups.

A person sits underneath a tree, contemplating the three cups before them. They seem dissatisfied, and lost in thought – so lost they do not even notice the miraculous cloud beside them, holding out the fourth cup that would finish their set.

The Four of Cups represents missing information. Often times when we are faced with a problem, the solution is right under our noses. This leads us to feel awfully foolish once we find the answer! When you draw this card, try to think: what am I not seeing, here? When you are so focused on a single point, it becomes impossible to see what surrounds it.

OCCULT: Daily Draw – Eight of Cups

Today’s card is the Eight of Cups.

The Eight of Cups, typically, is a warning sign. A person is shown journeying away, dejected, from a stack of eight cups. The moon eclipses the sun overhead, as a face upon the moon watches the person with interest.

When you see the Eight of Cups, it’s a sign that something isn’t working out. It’s a sign of feeling burned out, letting go, and moving on from the burdens that are keeping you down. Don’t just let these things keep you pinned down! Though it’s always a struggle to have to let go of sunk costs, you’ll be much, much happier once you’ve found new territory to tread.
