The cups court cards in the Wild Unknown are represented by swans. Symbolically, swans have been associated with love, elegance and grace. Of course swans are at home in the water, making them natural fits for the suit of cups! There’s also something that seems a bit tender about swans. They are creatures that seem simultaneously fragile and powerful.
The Daughter of Cups (often called the Page in other decks) is a young swan. The lake around her is calm and stable. Her reflection shimmers in the water as a full spectrum rainbow. This shows that she holds the potential for a full range of emotions, and she welcomes any emotional experience without labeling it as negative or positive. She allows herself to fully feel whatever it is that she is feeling, but ESPECIALLY the good stuff.
There’s still a sense of innocence in this card. Although the Daughter of Cups has the potential to embody any number of emotional states, she is still young. Some might even venture to say she is naive. She favors the rose-colored glasses view on life. She sees the good in all that is. She knows how to look on the bright side. She’s in love with life! Perhaps there is a difference between being naive and believing that love conquers all.
The Daughter of Cups has a simple approach to life, but there can be great power in simplicity. In a reading, this card can ask you to open your heart. There is magic in vulnerability. Sometimes we need to trust our intuition and our own good nature. The Daughter of Cups reminds you to show your true colors to the world, because, as the song goes, they are beautiful like a rainbow.
