Hi there

My name is Emily and this is my dedicated space for documenting my journey with creative living. It is my hope, that I can inspire those of you who visit, read and look through this space to find the curiosity to follow your own inner voice, seek out and do the thing that makes you go “this is what life’s all about.”

Yemoja // The King of Cups

Yemoja // The King of Cups

The King of Cups (Sociable, loving, sensuous. Intelligence combined with strong intuition. Loves the arts) depicted as Yemoja, African (Yoruba) goddess often depicted as a mermaid She is associated with the moon, water, and feminine mysteries. I love this goddess! She sounds like the epitome of a strong woman!

I struggled a lot with the kings of the deck as I really want this deck to be a celebration of goddesses and, no offence to the gods, but I wanted to keep it as a feminine deck. I decided I would select particularly powerful or inspiring goddesses for my King cards and stick to my theme. I researched Yemoja a lot as my knowledge of African deities is extremely limited and discovered that she is often shown as a two tailed siren – amazing!
