Ace of Cups (Reversed)
The Ace of Cups floats on the surface of a shimmering lake at dawn. The silver cup with a stylized scallop design is surrounded by blooming pink water lilies and green lily pads. The cup is overflowing with water all on its own, and there are four streams of water—one for each direction and element—spilling over the edge of the silver cup and back down into the lake, returning the water to its source. In the background the sun rises over the brim of the cup, signaling the birth of a new day. The feminine element of water is the focus of this card. The cup, or chalice, is a time-honored symbol of the Divine Feminine. The cup is thought of as the womb from which all life flows. This particular ace is an auspicious card for personal relationships, as this suit is aligned with love and emotions. The Ace of Cups also symbolizes opportunities that come out of the blue and emotional growth and the gifts that come with it. The Ace of Cups tells us that the time is now for new and creative projects, divine inspiration, a new romance, a new life, and fresh starts.
The Ace of Cups is the most potent and pure form of the feminine element of water. When the Ace of Cups appears in a reading, it proclaims birth, growth, love, and clairvoyance. This card often appears when a pregnancy is about to be announced or confirmed. However, there is more to the Ace of Cups than just physical birth. It does symbolize a wedding, a happy marriage, a healthy relationship, and a loving family. It may also be a symbol for emotional growth and healing. Remember, too, that the element of water is associated with psychic powers, creativity, imagination, and spiritual and emotional fulfillment. Gaze into the surface of that overflowing silver cup … what new, enchanting things are about to be birthed into your world?
