47-Knight of Cups – Reversed Golden Deck

Your Chosen Card – Knight of Cups Reversed Golden Deck

When reversed, the seductive Prince of Cups casts his spell so convincingly that you don’t realize you are walking about in an illusion. You may think he really cares about you, but in reality he is using his charm for his own ends regardless of how it affects you in the long run. The reversed Prince of Cups is the archetypal Don Juan of classical literature. He will mislead or seduce you into providing him with momentary pleasure. Don’t expect a committed relationship. Forewarned is forearmed.

Book Details
Complete Book of Tarot: In Israel, Dr. Ofra Ayalon has developed the Therapy Cards Reading (TCR) technique to help people work through trauma with the aid of the images on the cards. TCR functions by ‘interpreting a card image as a visual metaphor referring to the person’s life issues. But unlike divination or Tarot reading, an important principle of TCR is that the one who holds the card holds the message. There are no fixed interpretations for the cards, no professional ‘reader’ who interprets them for you. Instead, a guide or a partner is there to help you focus on an issue, and explore what the image means for you.’ 17 In my experience, the most helpful tarot readings are those done in in a manner similar to TCR: the reader serves as a guide to help the querent focus on the issues reflected in the cards and to understand what they mean in his or her life.

Complete Book of Tarot: How, then, does one master the art of story-telling with the cards? Paul Huson, a recognized expert on the history of tarot, believes that the secret to reading the tarot resides in the person who divines rather than in the cards themselves: ‘As I see it, cartomantic rules and regulations have been cobbled together from a variety of sources, and I hold to the school of thought that the secret of successful divination lies within the diviner. Actually, I believe anyone who wants to read the cards is not only free to, but must evolve a personal method for himself or herself … ‘ 26
