7 of Cups
Within the sacred pools appear seven apparitions. Our bewildered alien in the foreground is suddenly gifted with a difficult decision. Each pool holds a single choice - a dragon, representing supernatural forces; a tower, a signal of stability and power; a treasured pearl, signifying abundance and wealth; a kelp crown, representing victory or honor; a head, symbolizing a companion for herself; a snake, a totem of wisdom and knowledge; a shrouded figure, representing the need for illumination. All of the choices are tempting, but beware as looks can be deceiving. Our alien dreamer must begin to turn her dreams into realities and that means figuring out what is real versus illusion and what might be wishful thinking versus dreams that can be built upon in real life. Each of the pools are interconnected, one flowing into the other. This symbolizes how every choice we make (or don’t make) are connected and will impact the rest of our lives.
