#TarotTuesday – Ace of Cups

Welcome to another Tarot Tuesday!

If you are just joining me, let me explain the inspiration to begin these posts. In Texas, and all across the country, Taco Tuesday is a popular day when Tacos are usually 99 cents. So, I had the inspiration, or Angel nudge as I like to think of it, to create a Tarot Tuesday. Each Tuesday I will post a different Tarot card and give its meaning. I pray and ask for the right card that will bring a universal message.

I created a short video to demonstrate how I pull the card for the posts. If you’re interested, here’s a LINK.

Today’s card is the ACE OF CUPS.

The keywords for the Ace of Cups are: Love, new relationships, compassion, and creativity.

The Ace of Cups shows a chalice overflowing with five streams of water. The cup represents the vessel of your subconscious mind; the five streams are your five senses and the abundant emotion and intuition flowing from within you. 

With the Ace of Cups, Divine love and compassion are pouring through you. You are a vessel for deep, spiritual love from the Universe, and you can’t help but let that love flow through you and into the world. You receive love, you give love, you ARE love. Your heart overflows. Don’t you just love that?

Now is the perfect time for you to open your heart and experience the rich flow of emotion available to you right now. You are more receptive to creative opportunities, loving connections, and deep compassion for other living beings. As with all Aces in the Tarot, this card comes as an invitation. Will you take it? Will you say “Yes!” to Divine love and compassion, and will you run with it? The Ace of Cups carries the potential for spiritual and emotional fulfilment – but only if you embrace it with an open heart.

This card often appears in Tarot readings when you are open to creative expression, especially when you can allow your emotions to shine through your endeavors. You may be inspired to start a new project. At this point in your life, you are comfortable with who you are and happily express this part of yourself to others. You see fresh potential in allowing your creative juices to flow. Let your imagination and talent unfurl to new possibilities.

The Ace of Cups often represents a new relationship, be it a friendship, a new family connection or blossoming romance. It is exciting – fluttery even – and you are so glad to have met someone with whom you can share a special connection. Give yourself permission to open yourself to giving and receiving unconditional love, and you will notice that affection flows effortlessly when you are in this loving state of mind. The water in the card reflects the flow of emotion, and thus, the Ace of Cups suggests that the enthusiasm you two generate will get you fired up about yourself and life.

There is a generous, compassionate side to the Ace of Cups, too. See this as a time of giving (not taking) and make the most of any opportunity to help others. You have the power to share your inner radiance and positive energy, bringing great happiness to those around you. And you will find that the more you give, the more you receive on multiple levels.

I love that this card indicates a time of giving, not taking! I am happiest when I am giving to others. What a positive uplifting message in the midst of chaos! I don’t know about you, but I’ll take it, embrace it, and run with it! I’d love to hear from you and how this card relates to you personally!

As always, thank you for joining me! See you next Tuesday for another inspiring message from the Universe via the Tarot Cards!

  1. This card resonated deeply with me, Jan. I find it a great privilege to share the love in my heart, and it comes back to me tenfold in a tsunami of warmth. My muse is leading me into a totally new direction with my writing, and I’ve buckled up and joined in for the ride. Thanks as always for these posts, my friend. ❤

      1. How kind you are, my friend. Thank you for the lovely compliment. I’ve begun writing my latest novel based on the Flash Fiction I put up for week 12 titled Intervention.

  2. What a wonderful card this is. I can definitely relate to it in many ways. Perhaps not because of a new romance but for the loving connection I feel more and more with nature and the happiness to involve it in my work and daily life. A new love indeed!!

      1. “Any peace we find bleeds over into every aspect of our lives.” That’s wonderfully said, Jan. Would you allow me to save this sentence for sharing it later in a quote post?

  3. The first thing that hit me was love. I had to make a decision last night not to join in the hate and anger that hit our small town this last weekend. I’m happy to see a love march coming up. Its what our world needs.

    1. Your testimony is proof that being mindful, practicing meditation, and being present makes a difference! Just as the keynote speaker at the RRBC WC&BE said yesterday, if we practice these things and avoid negativity, we will find more peace! Thank you for stopping by!

  5. What a timely card. We definitely need more of the spirit of giving right now with all that is going on in the world.

    I’m an INFJ, and I think by nature, my personality type speaks to a lot of what this card says….from compassion to spiritual love and wanting to help others. I also love the creativity aspect, and right now I’m feeling a lot of that! 🙂

  6. What a beautiful reflection! When I looked at the card, I was brought into a deep silence, one of Divine Love. When we rest in that graced space, we realize we are never alone, we are upheld by Love. Grace fills us, guides us, draws us into the larger, now desperate, Family. How extraordinary to be reminded of this truth so early in the morning! Thank you, dear Jan. ♥

    1. Oh, thank you, Gwen, for that beautiful comment. The silence is where we find the peace our soul seeks. And you are SO right – we are never alone! I think if we actually knew and understood the love our Creator has for us, we’d be blown away! Have a fantastic day, sweet lady! Hugs!


  7. Good morning Jan. What a beautiful tarot reading. I’m like you, I love giving to others. May you have a blessed day. Thank you For sharing your amazingly loving sister with me and for You BOTH being a shining light in my life. Love you.
