Self-Care with Queen 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 Queen of Cups.


Introduction and Meaning of the Card

SC-c13-01If 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 hold emotional space.


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 to create a safe space for the emotions of yourself and those around you with the approach of radical acceptance. Change and healing cannot occur until things can be fully and honestly expressed and accepted for what they truly are first. So take the time to actively listen to others and yourself without judgement.
