The proposal. Even I, deep down in my frozen cold black heart, know this is a romantic time of year, and we have a truly beautiful scene today. As a matter of fact, if you’re thinking about proposing you should just pop these 2 cards in an envelope and send it.
A large coin, huge, gold and shiny as the sun is handed to us from ‘out of the blue’ by the Fabulous Flying Skyhand of the Tarot who emerges from a bank of fluffy white clouds over the ocean. Our spectacular view is from a beautiful hillside garden. Roses and lilies bloom, and a lush, green trellis arches over a path that leads out down the mountain to the sea. This Ace I would call ‘the gift that keeps on giving’ that is, the ‘seeds’ that are the Aces have the potential to grow, and this ‘seed’ is all about money, home, family, and earthly possessions, plain and simple, including our most precious earthly possession, our own body. This Ace is of the suit of Earth and represents Virgo, Taurus and Capricorn. It actually looks like a lovely spot for a wedding. Perhaps he’s offering the home and garden itself – wow.
This is taking it out of the dream and to the street, as it were, IRL (that means ‘in real life’ I learned). The earthbound suit of coins are all about ‘IRL’, and it’s time to get real and manifest (I do not use that word often) this dream into physical reality. At least someone thinks so. He’s very special, this Knight. He’ll be crushed if he’s turned down. He’ll probably burst into tears on the spot.
The Knight of Cups is of the suit of Water, Pisces/Scorpio/Cancer. This is the dreamy, poetic Knight, riding over green valleys and blue hills carefully carrying his gold cup symbolizing what else? His love. When this water sign loves, he loves. He (or she) is the one who remembers the first time he saw you, the first thing you said to him, what you were wearing and what was playing on the radio. He’s a thweetheart. He loves love. He loves music. He loves art, he loves beauty. You’re his ‘dream come true’, and his dreams give him ‘wings’, as symbolized by the blue wings that crown his helmet. His armor is beautiful detailed and looks made of scales, like a fish. On his shoulder is an insignia of a blue wave – he is swept along, motivated and moved by his emotions. He can be a moody fish, but that’s to be expected from someone as sensitive as this lovestruck Knight (Morgan-Greer deck).
This is truly a beautiful combination. This Knight is offering him or herself, body and soul, in a rather cinematic, storybook setting. It will be a very special, memorable moment.
I hope the answer is yes, he went through a lot of trouble, gold ring and all.
