Daily card: Seven of Cups

I originally learned this card as the card of ‘fairy favours’, a warning against illusion and wishful thinking, of basing too much on what you wish was true, rather than what’s really true. The card also shows what could be a rainy sky in the background, washing away illusion in the end, and a rainy blue wash over the distant mountaintops.

It can also be a card about longing for something you can’t have; the thing you’ve imagined you want may be illusory and simply not exist in the form you wish for. What you wish for may not be quite what you think.

Nothing I’ll post here, despite the anonymity, but this is a valuable reminder when it comes to thinking about which clients to accept, in my work, and which to… if not reject, at least ask more searching questions of.
