This card echoes the message of yesterday’s card, Six of Pentacles reversed - it’s necessary at this time to strengthen your boundaries. The Queen of Cups represents a highly emotional and sensitive person who is always loving, nurturing, and supportive of others. Coming up reversed in this case, the card suggests that you’re letting the focus on others to take over your life, leaving you with no energy to attend to your own emotional needs. As yesterday’s reading said, the trait of generosity is an admirable one, but you need to recognize how much is too much, and remember to take care of yourself. Like in the airplane safety video, you have to put on your own oxygen mask before helping others. And there are people who will take advantage of your kindly nature and will leech off you. Be aware of these “emotional vampires” and steer clear of them. You can tell who they are when you feel tired, drained, and depressed after interacting with them. Learn to put up a protective shield around yourself and zap it with energy when you come into contact with these people. Here’s a page that describes how to do it: White Light Protection
