Tarot & Food: King Of Cups Layered Stew

Waldherr's Goddess Tarot

The King of Cups is my secrets keeper. I see him as a very Scorpio man. Some assign him to Cancer, but for me, he’s just far better as a Scorpio. He is an emotional King who can see to the heart of the problems you bring to him. Of course, like Scorpio, sometimes he can be a bit sharper than most would like, but if you go to him for advice, expect him to strike with laser-precision at the truth of the matter.

For me, I think he would like a meal that nurtured while at the same time being easy to make. He’s a water guy so I had to give him a recipe that had a broth. The fact that there is wine in this is just a plus for him.

I hope you enjoy this one. Please let me know what you think in the comments. I admit to being in a bit of a Piscean funk as I write this. I need more of you to just say hello. Let me know you are here so I don’t think I’m blogging in a vacuum?

King of Cups Layered Stew

Housewives Tarot, Buffum/Kepple

* 4 md potatoes, cubed
* 2 C baby carrots, peeled/washed
* 1 lg onion, cubed
* 2.5 lb roast beef, cubed
* 1/2 cup red wine
* 1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
* 1/2 TBS Tony Cachere’s Cajun Seasoning
* 1 Cup Water
* 1/2 C Honey
* 2 TBS Garlic powder
* 2 TBS Balsamic vinegar
* 1 pckt French Onion Soup mix

This is a very very easy layered stew. Once you have the ingredients cut up to specifications, put the potatoes in, then the carrots. Follow this with the onions. Now put in the wine, vinegar, worcestershire sauce, tony’s and garlic. Then put the cubed roast in a bowl and dump the packet of French Onion soup mix over that. Roll the meat around in the soup mix. Put that coated mixture (and scrape the bowl) in the crockpot. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours.

Serve with biscuits and a green salad.

And when the King of Cups wanders into your readings, ask yourself what secrets you’ve been asked to keep? Maybe someone in your life needs a more determined type of nurturing (read: Boot to the rear for motivation.)

Take a moment to explore your own deck. If you have more than one deck, pull out as many of your own Kings of Cups as you are comfortable with. What is similar in each? What makes each one unique? By comparing the cards, one to another, we can deepen our own relationship with them.

If you are enjoying this series of articles, let me know. I’m going to put up a poll soon to see what everyone would like to see from this blog.  I do appreciate the support and the diggs and comments.  Thank you for sparing me some of your valuable time to share your thoughts.

  1. To me also, the kings represent the fixed signs of the zodiac and my man for Scorpio is the King of Cups too.

  2. Of course, I also think that Waite was justified in switching Strength and Justice keys. LOL!

  3. This is what he means to me as well, the secret keeper. I am so enjoying reading you work, and the recipies

  4. To me the King of Cups is a Diplomat. He uses persuasion and diplomacy, in a good natured way to get what he wants. He is patient and kind, although sometimes over indulgent to those he cares for.
    You are not blogging in a vacuum. I enjoy your insights, but am not a joiner.
    I’ll give the stew a try. Thanks for the recipe!
