Water

Water


This represents an aspect of the past
The Grail

The Grail

Reflection, distortion, spirituality, emotion
Basic Interpretation:
The swirling, fluid seas hold all the majesty and fluidity of human emotion. Water itself is the fundamental representative of spirituality, emotion, instinct and reflection. It is a fundamental force; without direction but able to be channeled by those who wish to focus its power. The currents of this card are always moving, sometimes turbulent but deeper than most suspect.

This represents some aspect of your goal or future
The Madonna

The Madonna

Object of desire, goal, quest, drive,envy, lust, pure desire
Basic Interpretation:
Symbolizing the essence of the quest, the energy and object of desire that all people chase, the Grail is more than a religious symbol, it is the inspiration for the quest itself. The Grail is the cup of desire for all humanity.

This is something hindering your progress
The Lovers

The Lovers

(Reversed) Over-protective love, family secrets
Basic Interpretation:
Golden light frames a woman holding her child. She is the Madonna; the Good Mother. In every culture and all times, the figure of the ever-forgiving and trusted maternal figure has been a steadfast fixture.
(Reversed) Short-term romance, "crushes," inappropriate unions, blind lust
Basic Interpretation:
Oblivious of their idyllic surroundings, the Lovers stare intently into each other's eyes. Their attraction may lead to marriage or perhaps something more transient. They believe they have found the only thing they need in each other's arms.
