While the Six of Cups retreats, the Seven of Cups rows out. The boat is at a wall, a border beyond which nothing but cloud is visible. The pots above hold “yarrow, heather, and hollyhock,” all of which have medicinal uses. Heather is also a common material for a besom, a tool for both practical and spiritual cleaning. The overall message of this card is healing, cleansing, and remedies; freedom from illness and from other evil influences.
This card links to the discipline of the Four of Cups.
