well yes, but going on RW imagery the Knight has his horse to ride and is still in the quest phase, the queen is seated on the sand at the seashore and being feminine is more at home with the water, the king being masculine is not as comfortable with the water and there is so much of it that his throne is floating.

I don't have a lot to add to this thread right now, but find it interesting that earlier today (before I saw the thread) I was rummaging around on my bookshelf and pulled out my long-neglected copy of Dorothy Kelly's "Tarot Card Combinations" (Weiser/1995). It shows that someone has gone to the trouble to at least partially codify and publish some of the possible two-card (and three and four card) combinations and their blended meanings, including reversals. However, it's still vastly incomplete and the interpretations are so thin as to be largely uninformative. For the Justice + 7 of Cups combo, it has "Legal Decisions, Court is Speculating, Equality with Choice." I can see the derivations and might be able to glean something constructive out of them for a reading, but it just seems so dry. Still, this might be worth a look if only to have an on-the-fly reference work to build upon.

Ahh, yes, I think I failed to mention that I was using the Thoth ::blushing:: Based on RW imagery, that interpretation does make total sense.

am trying to come up with something positive here but not having a lot of luck, must be too jaded, sorry.
That's funny, I got quite a positive hit - as soon as I saw the pair I thought "aha! Finally, a culmination - and, oh, look, it's a culmination that came from all that steady, patient affection, that kind wisdom-that-understands-how-people are" --> and then was left totally blank as to what kind of culmination kind, patient tolerance might lead to.

That was more or less my reaction too LOL. To me this is an odd pair that doesn't seem like an odd pair... which makes it more odd.

That one reminds of Samson and Delilah - when his hair finally grew back, he used his strength in an act of revenge. He pushed some pillars apart and the whole building came down killing hundreds of people including him.

interesting perception of the King of cups, but I don't see him that way. When I think of a king, I think someone in control, someone of power, a leader who is strong even in the moments of chaotic turbulence. So when I see the King of cups I think, someone who is in control of the emotions, and/or someone who approaches the situation with a calm and rational effect.

And the choice of Jurors is like the 7 of cups too - I think both sides get to assess the potential jurors and decide whether or not they are eligible to sit on the jury based just on their appearance and what is known of their profile.
So Justice + 7 of cups = trial by jury.
The Justice card doesn't necessarily have to be a legal card. Taking the definition of the word Justice, meaning fair and proper administration. Then seeing the 7 of cups as having choices, some seen, some unseen. The combination then becomes about making the proper choice. Just another way to view it outside of legal matters.
