The Past position in the reading refers to recent events and challenges that just took place, things that lead up to the present situation, and your role in them.

The High Priestess
The High Priestess is the third card in the Major Arcana, and is given the number two to indicate the polarity inherent in all things. She sits between the pillars of light and darkness, mercy and severity, positive and negative. She has withdrawn from outside influences, going deep within to gain knowledge from behind the veil of consciousness. The scroll in her lap is labeled “TORA”, the name of the Hebrew holy book, indicating her link to divinity. Behind her, the eternal ocean of emotions and intuition ebbs and flows, and she is the key to its mysteries.

The High Priestess in your past indicates that the root of your issue is in your search for more esoteric knowledge, when you experienced a spiritual wakening. The attainment of such wisdom required discipline. She also indicates that you looked for the subtle meanings beyond everyday events. You learned to listen to your inner voice to hear the truth that lies beyond the shallow, mundane world, and trusted your instincts.


The Present position in the reading represents what is happening right now. Typically, this is what triggers you to seek out a reading. This card can often help you to understand what steps to take next.

Four of Cups
The Four of Cups indicates a strong sense of emotional retreat and discontent that you are experiencing. The man sitting against the tree seems to be closed off to new ideas. You may be focusing on the boredom you’ve been feeling with what you already have, suggested by the three cups at the man’s feet. A new opportunity is being offered you and you may be turning it down, deciding instead to close yourself off. Perhaps you are in need of this retreat, and need to evaluate what’s important to you, but spending too long in this mode can prevent you from moving forward.


The Future position in teh reading describes what is just around the corner. It’s an official “heads up” about where the situation is heading and how you may navigate through it towards the best possible outcome.

King of Cups
The King of Cups directs his creative powers to achieve success. He practices self discipline, sometimes even at the expense of his dreams, to rise to power. The water seen rolling in waves denotes his emotional powers, as he is a caregiver, capable of manifesting harmonious situations and feelings. You, or one close to you, will channel creative energy into something to benefit more than yourself, or him/herself.
