Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Ace of Cups

So last week we finished off the wand cards and today we are going to move on to the cups. The cup cards are associated with water (whereas wands was with fire). These cards often relate back to emotions, the unconscious, creativity, intuition, and relationships (romantic or platonic).


When pulled upright this card is about getting rid of your emotional baggage and starting to live your life to the fullest. This card shows a new beginning. You might find that it brings the opportunity to form a new relationship (romantic or platonic). What you need to let go of may be emotional or spiritual. The presence of this card is there to encourage you to turn over a new leaf. It is important to open yourself up to these opportunities. 

When pulled in reverse this card is about how you’ve been going through a lot of emotional turmoil. This card represents a loss and it is possible that something that once brought you joy is no longer bringing you that same joy. This card could also mean you are having a creative block. It is important to think about what has caused this card to be reversed and how you can fix it.

Here is a tarot spread to embrace the new beginnings this card might be bringing you. First I would take out the ace of cups and mediate on it while thinking about possible new beginnings for yourself. Then shuffle and pull using your preferred method.


Position One:
What must I let go of to make room for the new?
This position provides you with something in your life that no longer serves your highest good or is no longer needed as you proceed forward.

Position Two:
How can I embrace this ending?
This position gives you insight on how you can learn to accept this particular closing chapter of your life, especially if there is some strong resistance.

Position Three:
What obstacles do I need to be aware of as I move forward on this next phase of my life?
This position provides you with insight on any obstacles you may face along the way.

Position Four:
What freedom will this new beginning provide me?
This position provides you with how this new path will liberate you during this new phase of your life.

Position Five:
What is the best potential for this new beginning?
This position gives you insight on how this new beginning will benefit you in the best way.
