Ace of Cups

Water is the source of life, the well of dreams, the flowing emotion. The Ace of Cups is the water that flows forth, the source. The river, the well, the sea. Water is life and without it, we have nothing.

Water is also deep and mysterious, the place of emotions and dreaming. In dreams, we face things we might not otherwise be willing to examine, truths are seen, revelations appear. Water is also the place of emotion, water that flows in our tears.

The Cups are the start — an empty cup to be filled, dipping into the well of emotion and subconscious. To be in the water is to be vulnerable. To let yourself fully and deeply experience emotions, to reach into your subconscious and drink from the source of life is to take a risk.

Can you open yourself up to the water?
