Tarot Tuesday

The Ace of Cups

Keywords for the Ace of Cups can include: faithfulness, fertility, joy, love.  The commencement of creative or artistic projects.  All the positive powers of the unconscious mind. In timing, the Ace of Cups indicate summer and aces symbolize beginnings.

In this card we can see an open hand as if offering up a gift and the cloud lets us know that it's a divine gift.. the white dove shows us that the gift is pure. The pond indicates the unconscious mind and the five waterfalls reflect the five senses. The lilies are our inner emotions that are developing with the assistance of the water around them.

When the Ace of Cups turns up in readings, it inspires us with confidence and happiness. If it appears in a daily draw situation, it can indicate the start of a loving relationship of either the romantic or friendship type, it can represent the beginning of a project in which a great deal of loving energy is involved or sometimes it can reveal the beginning of a new life.

In a tarot reading where the Ace of Cups is reversed... it indicates that the emotions have been damaged, that the heart is blocked and that the individual in question may have difficulties connecting to other people. In other words, what might be called "A broken heart." In this case the Ace speaks to us of opening our heart and allow the divine healing energy to fill us up again.
