For today I've picked the Five and the Two of Cups from the Original Rider Waite Tarot face up, for they represent so perfectly how we are experiencing some conflicting feelings these last few days.
Saturday morning we went for our lovely fluffy Jofee and we are enjoying him so very, very much. He is bringing so much life and joy into our home. Therefore it surprised us a lot that out of the blue there were feelings of intense sadness because how could he ever take Tara’s place. Tara who was embedded in our family, who needed less than a word to understand us and knew exactly what we wanted.
With Jofee, we have to start all over from scratch, teaching him everything and somehow this feels very overwhelming, especially in the evening, when we are so tired. All this felt very much like the Five of Cups. Focusing too much on what we have lost instead of on what we were given: a new chance to be happy again with our little puppy.
Gradually we are moving from this card to the Two of Cups. Getting to know and appreciate one and other without expectations and comparisons to former love. In other words falling in love all over again. We are making new memories with our little fellow and love grows quickly stronger, deeper and we are beginning to forge unbreakable bonds. Our hearts will grow the more we love. There is room enough for everyone
