The Ace of Cups Tarot card's meaning is of joy and inner peace from friends and family. The five streams pouring out of the cup represent the five senses: sight, smell, hearing, taste' and touch.
As a symbol of possibility in the area of deep feelings, intimacy, attunement, compassion and love, in divination, it shows that a seed of emotional awareness has been planted in your life although you may not yet recognize it. When the seed sprouts, it could take almost any form. It might be an attraction, strong feeling, intuitive knowing, or sympathetic reaction. On the outside, it could be an offer, gift, opportunity, encounter or synchronistic event.
This Ace requires the diviner to examine their life to see how love works there. This card often means that love is the essence of the situation. It may or may not be romantic love depending on the cards around it. The inquirer may be guided to look for ways to connect with others at this level: is there someone to forgive, or is forgiveness needed? Can anger be replaced with peace? Is it necessary to let feelings show? The Ace of Cups also indicates "your time" is coming.
This card also suggests inner attunement and spirituality. Cups are the suit of the heart, and the Ace stands for the direct knowing that comes from the heart. Trust what your feelings are telling you. Seek out ways to explore your consciousness and your connections with Spirit. Allow the power of your emotions to guide you in a new direction. Embrace the love that is the Ace of Cups.
