Seven of Cups

Does it seem all, in your imagination, these spiral castles you have built, shimmering on the mirror-stillness of a mystic lake? Dewdrops hang glistening on the spider's web in the half-light of suspended animations, changes and magick portals afoot´┐Ż Ssh! The God and Goddess seem alive, and afoot, weaving, weaving the threads of fate, "in her craft or sullen art" (with apologies to Dylan Thomas)...Funny that I just get this, after posting on AT re "if Tarot cards represented drinks"! (Tarot games and fun)... And I failed to find mead, redolent of bees worshipping the sun (despite auspicious solar portents, although I did the Sun reversed!), to appropriately celebrate Beltane this afternoon... lol Never mind, brightest Beltane blessings, everyone, lol!
It also goes quite nicely with today's rune of Lagu: "When interpreted as the returning tide, Laguz can also predict the inevitable return from a long journey," also interesting after the 6 of Swords (how do you turn off this silly underline thing?) lol

Brightest Beltane Blessings ... are the illusary 7 cups, with our shadow reaching for the ????? ... and thereby hangs a tale!

I read an interesting interpretation of the meaning of the contents of each of the cups by a Jungian from Holland. Only wish I could remember what it was. Three levels, three worlds ... and then of each individual cup. Mythos head holes are the most consistent of things that stay in mythos's mind.LOL

Mead, now that would be a lovely drink with which to bless Beltane.

The goddess only knows what was in my mind when I wrote above (first bit) but I was obviously still asleep enough not to communicate what I meant (whatever that was LOL) ... certainly didn't think that your Beltane blessings were illusory ... What a completely nonsensical bit of rubbish I wrote ... I outdid myself in sleep sludge speak methinks!

Interestingly, I finally started reading a book on the Holy Grail trailing from the original version through its developments. Early days yet - big book, but there were a couple of references to the Grail being covered in a piece of white Samite cloth (in a few of the versions in the century post- Chretien de Troyes [1st version]) ... so what came to mind was the 'Waite' 7 of cups - middle cup, top row!!!. Cool huh!

Yep, which makes me think that not ALL the 'visions, i.e. spiritual experiences, of the 7 of Cups need represent illusions, drug-induced or not. I feel intrigued by's interpretative comment that every now and then it brings with it the (rare) possibility of a genuine mystical experience, i.e. one with an element of ineffability in it, that you cannot (by definition!) talk about... Come to think of it, that might also make those on LSD trips, who attempt to write down their 'trip' while experiencing it, later discard it; not so much 'garbage', as just language unequal to the task (Wittgenstein)? ;-))
