Knight of Cups

Sleeping Satellite – Tasmin Archer

Painting the bedroom yesterday with an old mixtape turned up loud, singing a long to Sleeping Satellite…a song I’ve never understood. And suddenly it hit me! It’s the Knight of Cups! When you feel so passionate about that one person, one love, that one romantic goal, that you rush to it headfirst and miss the nuances and the beauty of love, the magic in what we seek, and the seeking itself. (I know I have.)

Did we fly to the moon too soon?
Did we squander the chance? In the rush of the race
The reason we chase is lost in romance
And still we try to justify the waste
For a taste of man’s greatest adventure

And when we shoot for the stars
What a giant step have we got what it takes
To carry the weight of this concept?
Or pass it by like a shot in the dark
Miss the mark with a sense of adventure


Feeling musical? Here’s the whole Sunday tarot songs archive. It’s a tarot playlist!
