Self-Care with Knight of Cups

Welcome to Self-Care with tarot! Each week we will go over one tarot card and explore how it can be used to inspire a self-care activity for the week. This week is the Knight of Cups.


Introduction and Meaning of the Card

SC-c12-01If you haven’t already, you can explore the basic meaning of this card here, from my Exploring Tarot series, and you can explore the emotional meaning here, from my Emotional Tarot series.

With that said, in the context of self-care, I take this card to mean there is a need to improve emotional self-regulation skills.


My Suggested Self-Care Activity for the Week

Based on the meaning of this card, the activity I would suggest to try doing each day until next Wednesday is remaining aware of how you feel, the stories you tell yourself about your feelings, and how the behavior you chose in response to them aligns with your values.

The reason for this is emotion is energy in motion, which ultimately drives behavior. In turn, the results of our behavior either aligns with our values and uplifts us or doesn’t align and drags us down. Every time we experience an emotion, it’s a message from our subconscious based upon the belief sets we hold. We can choose to change that with awareness and practice through the stories we tell ourselves.
