What sort of work involves balancing a cup on your head?

People have been telling me that 'things happen for a reason' to comfort me about not getting the job yesterday. I appreciate the comfort, but I was wondering...what is the reason, then? I used my new Fountain Tarot to answer the question: 'What has the universe in mind for me, then, since I didn't get this post?'

Fountain Tarot by Saiz, Grubl and Todaro, 2015 
The card in the middle dominates, and is Ace of Coins, traditionally read in these situations as a 'new job', or new direction, or potential energy in the material/physical plane. On the left is Knight of Cups and on the right is Three of Wands.

The Knight of Wands sits on the edge of a waterfall, it appears to me, with a cup balanced on his head. He's not particularly practical! His oblivious nature here puts me in mind of the Fool, but with more of a theme of emotions and intuition. He is turned toward the big coin, but not looking at it. (He always has his gaze on something indistinct in the distance, doesn't he!)

We have a really interesting Three of Wands here. Instead of looking out across a wide vista of possibility, as in the RWS tradition, this Three of Wands is pulling the Wands in with great determination. He is reeling in the possibility instead of contemplating it. And he reels in toward the Ace of Coins.

Whatever the reason is, it has something to do with making the most of the 'yearning but immature' side of my personality, paired with determination to bring my vision into corporeal reality.

Hmm. The cup on the head reminds me of this from Flight of the Conchords:

I Told You I Was Freaky

(relevant bit ends at 50 seconds)


  1. Lol, I'd never seen the Freaky thing :) I like that reading, saying that there is a new beginning for you that will tap into your yearning, emotional side, if you can bring the determination to reel it in :)

    1. I love Flight of the Conchords. I hear there is going to be a new series.
