The Ace of Cups is one of my favorite tarot cards. And why not, its essence is about love, personal as well as universal, being in a happy flow and (unconditionally) magnetic to good. Things and issues just effortlessly flow together. May we all enjoy ease, grace, magic and synchronicity as the universe is always voting for our happiness, wellness and fulfillment.
Ace of Cups: Gerd Ziegler – Mirror of the Soul, Handbook for the Alisteir Crowley Tarot
“Key Words: Overflowing love; emotional clarity, deep love of the self; giving and receiving.
The white lotus is the symbol for love of a giving nature. It forms the base of the cups, which is blue, color of the element Water. Vertically through the cup flows a brilliant energy beam, uniting Earth and Cosmos. The cup is the medium which makes itself available for the coming together of the above and below, inner and outer. The Ace of Cups is the feminine counterpart to the Ace of Wands; open, receptive, surrendering; bearing the transformatory power of giving love. The upper and lower portions of the painting embody the same quality, below in the emotional realm of water, above in the ethereal sphere of the spirit. As above, so below. That which is internally felt expresses itself externally clearly and openly. Emotional clarity results, emphasized in the painting by its balance and harmony.
The giving of love happens effortlessly. That which continually flows into us from the boundless abundance of the universe radiates outward again by itself, if we remain open and receptive. You can compare it with the flower which exudes its fragrance whether someone comes close to enjoy its perfume or not. This giving is not dependent on individual, perhaps close people. There is so much to share! All of existence can take part in it. Becoming one with the all-embracing, omnipresent love is such a silent ecstasy, a cosmic orgasm!
Indication: You are in contact with all-embracing love. It fills you and you can pass it on generously, lavishly, to others!
Question: What is your way of expressing love?
Suggestion: Let the card work on you for a while. Read the last two
paragraphs of the description again, and close your eyes. Feel yourself
as an open channel for the divine energy.
Affirmation: All-encompassing love fills me and my environment.”
