Daily Divination: Ace of Cups
With the Ace of Cups, its message is that you’re about to experience a new chapter in your emotional and/or spiritual life. The Ace of Cups is about joy, happiness, and abundance, and says your cup runneth over!
When the Ace of Cups turns up, you may be in the throes of a new relationship—and all those exciting feelings and sensations that go along with it. Or, this card can suggest a birth of some kind (a child, a project, or even a business endeavor), and it’s something you have a great deal of love for.
If you’re feeling the need for a new emotional experience, the Ace of Cups asks the question: What would you need to know, consider, or do—to be open and willing—to have that new experience you’re seeking? The cup, being a symbol of receptivity, asks, “Are you as receptive as you might think you are?”
For the spiritual seeker, this card suggests communion with the Divine (the dove descending into the cup with the communion wafer). The cup is a reminder that we’re all vessels of Spirit—and we all carry the essence of the Greater Spirit (the waters below) within each of us. We’re all individualized expressions of Spirit—no matter how we express ourselves at any given moment (we have to remember that when we—and those around us—aren’t expressing ourselves/themselves at the highest potential we/they are capable).
Finally, consider if you might need to have your “love tank” filled up. If you’re the giving type, be mindful of your giving nature—and when you’ve given so much that you’re now depleted and running on empty. It might be time to step back and allow yourself to get filled back up. Take the time to give to yourself (Aces are numbered 1, which is the number of the individual)—because you can’t give to others what you don’t have yourself.
