Ace of Cups (Gilded Tarot)

The Gilded Tarot Ace of Cups is rich in spiritual symbolism – an ornate golden goblet floats above an ocean that is lit by the sun reflecting across the water.  Above the cup is an eye – the Eye of Providence as the version on the US dollar bill is called, or the Eye of Horus in ancient Egypt.  A trio of rays emanate from the eye in a pyramid shape, filling the cup with divine light, and beyond the cup to suffuse the flowing waters below.

Above the eye are images of the Moon in its various phases, highlighting the connection between the changeable moon and the element of water.

When this card appears in a reading, spiritual and emotional abundance is available as potential energy that can be used if it is accepted – emotions flow freely, love is in the air, and there is sense that the universe is smiling upon you.  Intuitions seem to be heightened and it seems to make sense to follow your emotional hunches.

It’s a little gift that says go ahead and follow your heart – it’s leading you where you are meant to be right now.  What you do with it is up to you, and will determine where it leads, but this is a little blessing to get you started.
