Let's start with this:
My fifth card with 78Tarot, the seven of cups for the Mythical deck is so far my favorite. :) This deck is Kickstarting now! http://kck.st/2CYauY1
(And it's already almost funded!!)
In the tarot deck, sevens are about choices and the seven of cups adds a layer of illusions and wishes. Be cautious when making choices, because sometimes you don't see the whole story at a glance!
In Greek legend, the pleiades were seven nymph sisters, daughters of Atlas and the sea-nymph Pleione. When Orion chose to pursue them, unwanted, Zeus turned the girls first into doves and then into stars, where as a constellation, they still flee Orion.
Here, I chose to illustrate each of the sisters, giving them each a cup of wonders to offer to the viewer. While you may be tempted by the riches that appear to be in each vessel, don't be blindly seduced down a path that could hold danger. A great wave threatens to break over the path they are beckoning you down, and they may only offer dreams and fantasies.
