Tarot Card for the Day ~ December 6

Knight of Cups


This here knight here is back after exactly eight days.  And before that, he was back again after only nine days.  Do ya suppose this card might be attempting to remind us once again of what’s REALLY important at this sacred and magical time of year?  [Did I hear gift certificates from Saks and Barney’s?  Really you guys.] 

The Knight of Cups is always a good energy & good advice card.  I think of this as the card of the sacred quest. 

[Barney’s my asparagus!]

Therefore, if you have been feeling that your life really isn’t going in the direction you and God (Spirit, The Universe, the Universal Life Force, the Big Enchilada, Diddy, The Voice of John Cleese, Brangelina – whoever) agreed to before you accepted birth this time around:


Don’t you think it’s time to reconnect and GET GOING?

Some readers might interpret the Knight of Cups as the coming of a messenger, advancement in the world, or a graceful but not warlike person of great masculine energy [think Baryshnikov, I guess. Or George Clooney.  Or Madonna?].  Others could say it indicates someone (maybe you?) ingenious, full of original ideas.

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck I use, feels this card betokens a tempting proposal which deserves serious consideration. [Avoid snakes in apple trees and guys playing fiddle at crossreoads.  Things rarely work out.]  Also, an approaching opportunity for advancement.  Or an unexpected gift.  So if something like that crosses your path today, assume you deserve it, accept it fully and gratefully, and run with it! 

I still like my intuitive interpretation best. [And I say that with no modesty whatsoever.]

Think upon the commitments for this lifetime

              that you made before you came into being. 

 Determine the next few steps

                        to keep you moving along that path –

 or the first steps that will be necessary

                                to move you back onto that path. 


Bright blessings and remembrance of your sacred self!

    Great Interpretation of this card Neal!

    On St. Nicholas’s Day children put their shoes outside their doors at night and the St, Nicholas comes and fills the shoes with little toys , coins, and candy. I know that we did that after we had learned about it is school. ( I am sure my mom was thrilled about that! LOL)

    Well, Thanks for all you do!!!

    Hope you have a great day and maybe found some candy, coins or toys in your shoes!!!!

    Thanks for the reminder that it’s the Feast of St. Nicholas. Over the years I’ve told his story to so many of my younger French students. What a kind bishop (turned saint) he was. How he secretly helped those in need. How his name is Sinter Klaus (not sure on spelling) in Dutch and thus the confusion with “Santa Claus”. The children in Europe love to put out their shoes on the Eve of the Feast of St. Nicholas, only to find them filled on his special day.

    Again, thanks for the good memories.

    ~ ~ Blessings, Donna
