Beauty within foundation.
The Knight of Cups is gracing us with emotions, traveling through a dry and arid landscape with a chalice of water. We as humans need water to survive. It could also be said that we need to express and experience emotions to survive as well. It is in this way that we come to know ourselves and create connections with others. Experiencing beauty is a key emotional experience that enriches our lives. It is what allows us to appreciate all that is good and light in the world, and it quenches our thirst when our spirit is parched. An appreciation of beauty also grants us a reservoir upon which to draw when things feel dark, building a strong foundation to face whatever arises for us.
