SOME EXAMPLE CUPS WITH THEIR
The cat with dots around being near the handle indicates financial
worry in the home. The bone beyond shows that the misfortunes will
be met with courage, and eventually overcome. The cockatoo, with
the cauliflower appearing on the opposite side, signifies that an
unreliable friend will cause the consultant a little uneasiness,
and as a small symbol of a mushroom is beside it, a quarrel with
this undesirable friend may be expected.
The pear may be linked to the symbol of the font in the centre of
the cup, showing that the consultant may expect news of a birth;
the carving indicates that the news will give much satisfaction;
the wine-cup, with the leg in conjunction, points out that the ambitions
of the consultant will certainly be realised in the future. That
a certain amount of waiting will be necessary is shown by the distance
from the handle.
The motor boat, and monument in the centre, foretell the successful
outcome of a new venture, which at present is unthought-of. The
rocks show that a certain amount of mental agitation is aroused
by the setting out on this undertaking, but, with the reassuring
symbols in this cup, no alarm is necessary.
