The Daily Draw: Page of Cups

Find Tranquility Within The cups are the suit of the emotions, the imagination, love and intuition. The page is a person who is learning to work with that energy.

Find Your Inner Peace

Joy, happiness, inner peace—these are things that cannot be given. They must be found inside yourself. And they are there, even if they can be difficult to access.
