Whispering Tarot is another Court card, the King of Cups.
In contrast to yesterday's Queen, this chap isn't even getting a toe wet. Borne along by undine's this King travels safely in his boat. Two swans fan their wings behind him - perhaps part of the boat, perhaps real birds. On his head, a shell-like crown, and in his raised left hand a golden cup. His clothes are green, with a yellow over-tunic.
This feels like a good depiction of the King of Cups: he controls sentiment rather than being controlled by it. He hears the call of emotion, but can rise above it. He is guided by it, without being overwhelmed.
Today I hope for a mellow day with my Dear One and my brother, with Big Boy at school. We plan a long walk, and a curry in the evening. Perhaps this card is to do with spending time with my brother. He's going through a lot of soul-searching at the moment. I hope I can stay calm and balanced in the face of his uncertainty, helping rather than aggravating things. Perhaps, too, I need to guard my emotions - he's in a delicate enough place without having to deal with my stuff.
I am grateful for moments of equanimity.
