Take a look at the guy in the 7 of cups card. What’s going on with him, really? This image seems a little unearthly, a little surreal. Something beyond the ordinary and mundane world is going on here. The figure in this card has his head in the clouds. He is lost in imagination. He is dreaming. Is this the best thing for him, does he need to come back down to earth?
7 of cups can indicate a healthy and alive imagination. This can be very healing. There are many answers to the universe that can be found when you step away from rational and logical thought. Sometimes this is the best thing we can do for ourselves. Stepping away from rationality can reveal secret and hidden aspects of the universe, ourselves, or a situation that we do not otherwise see.
Be a dreamer. Stick your heads in the clouds. Live in a fantasy world. Sometimes we need to have our feet on the ground, this is true. Sometimes we do need to be practical and real. Sometimes though, it’s best to forget that idea. Explore the world of “Could Be.” In the World of Could Be, we see the real true contents of our heart. Without the restrictions of “what really is” we can figure out what it is we really want. Once we figure out what we really want, we begin the task of manifestation. So go beyond any and all limiting thoughts. Go crazy with what your real true desires are. There are no boundaries and there are no limitations. Put your head in the clouds and explore your heart’s desire.
While doing this, though, it is important to keep our feet on the ground. Stay rooted. Stay grounded. It is easy to get lost in our own thoughts and imagination and feel like we’ve drifted away. There is divinity in the imagination. However, we are beings of the earth. This is why we must stay grounded. Why do you think we have gravity? Why do you think we are in human form? To utilize what we find in the imagination, we must be planted firmly on the earth. Be as a tree with deep roots that grows tall. Have a firm foundation with high and lofty ideals.
Having your head in the clouds, sometimes, can be the best place for it. Dream. Fantasize. Imagine. Visualize the most ideal situation for yourself. We all need to do this. Sometimes though, you really do need to come down to earth and pay attention to the practical matters of your life. Plant your feet on the ground and root in. Strong roots make for a strong foundation. The stronger your roots, the higher you are able to hold your head. Find balance between the world of fantasy and the practical matters of earthly life. This is to be strong. This is to appreciate what both worlds have to offer in equal measure. Gaining this balance allows for the blending and sharing of the best of both worlds.
When the 7 of cups comes up for you in a reading, use it as an invitation to take stock of your dreams. What is honestly important to you? What can you, as an earthly being, do to manifest these things? Are you “lost in the clouds??” Or are you grounded? Be mindful to maintain a sense of groundedness as you pursue your hopes and dreams.
