MAAT Study Group- Princess of Cups


The Week of the full moon in Libra

"The full moon phase symbolizes generosity and the need to give to others. This phase implies an intuitive objective understanding of self and others."
Princess of Cups

Planetary ruler Mars

The image for the princess of Cups is a young woman on a white horse shaded by a palm branch. She is the archetypal bride, she is committed to a relationship yet still a virgin. She is the 'fair' maiden on her way to her wedding. Behind her is an empty grave. The doorway painted in lamb's blood signifies that the angel of death has passed over this household.

The menstrual blood of woman is the sign that promises life everlasting. She is eager to lay with her husband and eventually bear his children. She is the promise of new life to come. She is the fertile Earth garden ready for last summer's seeds to be planted.

Traditional tarot meaning: a blond child, and the element water.
