Queen of Cups — Sakki-Sakki Tarot

Monicka Clio SakkiArtist: Monicka Clio Sakki with Carol Anne Buckley


Interpretation: deep • sensitive • creative • compassionate • mysterious • visionary • adorable • practical • achieving


I finished the last card of my deck yesterday. I did! I did! It only took me 13 years or so to interpret and illustrate all 78 cards of the tarot deck. Never before have I had such a pressing deadline as an imminent child. I chose the Sakki-Sakki deck today because its cards seem like colored confetti thrown in celebration. I said to the deck, “I have no questions. Just congratulate me. Give me accolades.” As I cut the deck, out fluttered a card. I flipped it over. This deck hath bestowed the Queen of Cups upon me!


[See January 31 for a complete description of her energy.]


I cannot say I am the Queen of Cups; I can only say I love her. I relate to her. This queen-forever-swimming-in-the-sea finds respite and a place to comb her hair upon a rock— a stone— a sea-borne throne. In the Pre-Raphaelite Tarot (which, as far as I know, does not yet exist and I am not about to take the task of its creation upon myself) she is illustrated by one of my favorite paintings, John William Waterhouse’s “The Mermaid.”
