You know that song by Journey - Don't Stop Believin'? Well, there is something there that goes deeper than just a catchy song that is perfect for belting out at karaoke parties because it basically gives us the formula for creating. "Don't stop believin' - hold on to that feeling..." AND with the Cups playing a prominent role this morning - it is all about feeling.
The crows gather in a lovely lush garden that has an abundance of food and water - they are there to celebrate the birth of something new.
The Three of Cups in the past position points to a time in your life when you felt a connection with a group of friends, one that had you celebrating milestones and achievements together. This was (and maybe still is) your tribe - your support system. This card is coming through this morning as a reminder of how important cultivating relationships is in our life - they are essential for our well-being and our happiness. We are pack animals and because of this having a strong network of support in some way or another is something deep down we crave.
If it has been a while - if you have been a hermit...maybe it is time to reach out and connect with those who empower you. If it has been a while since the last time you had a good belly laugh with friends - make a date and reconnect! There is a magical healing property that comes from an "almost pee your pants" kind of laugh.
And if you are lucky enough to have regular get together with your tribe - then take this opportunity for a short gratitude moment for them - there is power in that feeling.
The happy couple sits on a blossoming branch underneath a rainbow - they have found success and are ready to move on to a new stage in their lives. There is a comforting warmth radiating over their roost at this time as a songbird sings, the air is sweet, and the feeling of sheer bliss envelopes the crows. It is the perfect summer day.
The Ten of Cups is at the center and with it, there is a strong feeling of bliss building at this time. The energy in the air is lighter and more conducive to feeling at peace with your current situation. If you were feeling any friction or uneasiness you will notice a shift - your circumstances may not change so dramatically but how you feel about the situation will - as you may experience the feeling as having a break-through.
Lean into that warm comforting feeling of the Ten of Cups because what you project comes back as your attitude attracts experiences that reflect the emotion. Have you ever noticed when you are stressed out about money - that is when you get an unexpected bill - or when you are feeling good about your financial situation - that is when something good happens like you find money - or you get a raise? I am a firm believer that we have the ability to draw to us experiences purely by the vibe we send out.
With the Three of Cups supporting the Ten of Cups - this tells me that it is time to feel connected with friends and enjoy life - feel good!

With this energy supporting you in the future you will be able to maintain that feeling of bliss ushered in by the Ten of Cups, while at the same time enable you to get the work done you need in order to make those around you happy as well.
Although a strong feeling of bliss can be a welcome reprieve if sadness and anxiety have infiltrated your mind for too long - there can be too much of a good thing. Temperance will balance out your emotions - this will put you in a stronger position, one that will enable you to control your feelings.
Temperance in the future position brings the message that you will find success in the near future as you will have the inner-strength and positive energy to move forward in a direction that will help you continue feeling secure and in charge of your life.
"The strong bond of friendship is not always a balanced equation; friendship is not always about giving and taking in equal shares. Instead, friendship is grounded in a feeling that you know exactly who will be there for you when you need something, no matter what or when." ~ Simon Sinek
