The fourth card is important, according to the reader. This is the environment and it represents the impact of the outside world as it pertains to answering my question. This card is friends, coworkers, and family. She flips it. “The Queen of Cups” is my first non-Major Arcana. This queen is a soft, nurturing mother figure that is overly protective and kind. She possesses insight, love, and gentleness. This card immediately reminds me of Ezili Danto – the strong mother figure. The image is of a beautiful queen resting in a seat shaped as a shell. Her dress is a vibrant, almost mirror, color with a border that has pictures representing life (babies, fish, and other animals all depicted in waves).

When inquiring about attaining her services, I gave special instructions to my friend that they were not allowed to talk about me in any way except to say that I was a student and I was interested in a reading in order to complete an assignment. I sent the details of my assignment ahead of time to get consent from the reader but I avoided personal conversation and I did not give her my name until the time of the reading. Due to the precautions taken, I am fairly confident that my faint relationship with the reader had no effect on my reading.
