“One of the greatest tragedies in life is to lose your own sense of self and accept the version of you that is expected by everyone else.”
― K.L. Toth
The 7 of Cups is a card of confusion. In the Waite Smith Tarot the action advice is built into the card, i.e. ‘Strive to align with your Holy Guardian Angel‘ whereas in the Druidcraft Tarot we see mirrored back to us what it feels like to be so confused that you are completely pulled under by emotion.
The remedy is to detach, lift your eyes and look at the choices before you. Your mantra should be “I am not my emotions. I choose peace and joy.”
When we stay in a state of perpetual confusion about who we truly are, our actions become predictable and we start living up to everyone’s expectations of us. Only when we are free to choose our own emotions can we start surprising people. And isn’t that much more fun?!
