A water card by nature (all cups are water), the Seven of Cups asks us what are we choosing to connect with and why.
There are so many desires we can experience in the course of a moment and there is no need to judge any of them. Rather, the Seven of Cups asks us to look at our desires fully, and in slowly looking, we can more clearly understandwhy we seek what we seek. We don’t need to condemn the act of desire—Scorpio understands this well, and the Seven of Cups is a card ruled by Scorpio. We just need to see desire for what it is—the act of seeking to connect with something that we THINK we don’t have. Here is where the Seven of Cups speaks up because “not having” is an illusion.
We are all seekers on our shared paths; the Seven of Cups reminds us that we already have what we seek. Look to the sky. All our cups are filled with what we seek to have and it is our task to see them as they really are. Are our desires lifting us up, or distracting us? We have the choice to connect with the timeless boundless reality of love. You already are love, it is just a matter of consciously connecting with it so it becomes part of your experience. Sevens gives insight into the nature of victory and this particular seven with Venus at its heart tells us that Victory is already ours. Celebrate the fullness and victory of choosing to fill your cup with love this week.

Stand still Scorpio. Stop. Pause. Ponder. Let yourself wander around in the deeper caverns of your psyche. A lot is coming up. A lot is revealing itself. A lot is trying to find it’s way to the surface so you can see it.
But it’s slippery material. You might get an inkling about it before you get an understanding of it. Right now you are just collecting data, data that will make more sense later in October. We are steadily marching towards an eclipse in your sign then but first Mercury turns retrograde (also in your sign) this Saturday. This turn of the Trickster may feel bewildering at first but it’s less about knowing the answer and more about knowing that you don’t know it…yet.
The next layer of this week has to do with an out of the blue opportunity to make mountains of self worth out molehills of self acceptance. This could translate into making money. This could translate into having some savvy business swagger. This definitely should translate as an opportunity for you to awaken to your power and potential.
In fact if you can let the deeply colored hues of the psychological material arising seep into your vision, everything you see will be warmed by it. It’s not what we live through, it’s how we view it. No matter what is occurring for you, no matter how emotionally trying, I dare you to remember this: your potential is locked up in it.
Whatever tests you, pushes you and pokes you wants your attention. Not because it’s a bad brat (even if it also is), not because it’s full of malice (even if that too is present) and not because your life sucks (though sometimes it certainly feels that way), it’s because your daemon is sometimes dressed up like a demon. It’s because we often don’t see what is right in front of us. It’s because we often misunderstand the code words given to us to set us free. Breaking out of the chambers that imprison us is the only way to true self worth, self-knowledge and self-reliance.

"The science of existence was completely out there for me to explore. Me, a twenty-five year old female. There’s no mystery why poetry is so elaborately practiced by the young. The material of poems is energy itself, not even language. Words come later."
