My thoughts- So many choices. Every single cup has a different choice, and with it, and different outcome. I do have to say that I don’t think I would choose the image that is either a funky mushroom or a poorly attired ghost.
The book- The Seven of Cups shows all of our dreams and desires laid out, awaiting our consideration. This card doesn’t tell us how to choos. It expresses the feelings we have in the face of possibilities and implies the downside of this experience: until a choice is made, there is a lack of focus.
The Universal Waite Card- The figure is darkened and his back is to us, indicating confusion and distraction. The dreams are looming so large that they are casting him in a shadow. The contrast between the man and the cups is unsettling.
Core Meaning- Dreams and desires.
To bad our dreams and desires don’t always mesh.
