ten of cups:
Appearance of cups in a rainbow, it is contemplated in wonder and ecstasy by a man and woman below, evidently husband and wife.

There is a home scene beyond.

Ace of cups
The waters are beneath, upon which are water lilies. The hand issues from the cloud, holding in it’s palm the cup, from which four streams are pouring.

Not being sure what repose of the heart means I tried to look up a definition of the phrase and found a site that gave a different/more comprehensive meaning : breaking of routine, stagnation, unhappiness, dysfunctional family life, loss of friendship, ulterior motive..... In the past I have (as anyone has) seen my family as dysfunctional… lost friends… been unhappy.... so honestly that’s not saying much.
I would love for felicity right now..... I always settle with contentment.... joy and abundance are just hopes.... but I see Krystal today so at least I will have my fill of social interaction this week. lol
A snobbish card about trade.... I mean diamond paintings would pretty much be sold to those types of people. Who would spend frivolously on something like that?
