|The consultant who has "turned" this cup
must be prepared for delays, and must not
expect real happiness until rather late in
life, this being shown by the bonnet and
strings on the side of the cup.
The small symbol of birds on a perch gives
further evidence that having to wait is a
feature of the consultant's lot. The rock
and pipe beyond show some dismay with regard
to a dear friend.
The large spray of mistletoe and holly at
the bottom of the cup, with the letters "F"
and "L" in conjunction, implies that some
event of importance to the consultant, in
connection with persons whose names begin
with these initial letters, will occur in
the winter. If the cup has been "turned"
during the autumn or winter, probably a year
will pass before the event takes place, as
the mistletoe indicates delay. But this
consultant is prepared to hear the truth,
and faces it calmly, even if it is a little
unpleasant; the symbol of the woman looking
into the glass brings this fact to light.

This cup was "turned" by a
well-known authoress. Its sinister
appearance is accounted for by the fact that
at the time of "turning" the cup, she was
arranging mentally a murder plot for the
book she was then writing.
