With each ace, we are gifted an opportunity. In this card, it is a single cup that we are offered.
A dove sits on a branch. In Greek mythology, the bird is sacred to Aphrodite, the goddess of love. It is of little surprise then, that the suit of Cups relates to the element of Water and emotion.
When the Ace of Cups turns up in our day, new beginnings of an emotional nature or the stirrings of love are indicated. Even though it may arrive to suggest a new emotional relationship, the card could point at our spirit being rejuvenated in some way. If you have been going through a tough time, then this card might herald a fresh start within personal relationships or the helping hand of someone who cares.
Are you willing to take the cup which is offered? Often, it is simply a change in perspective which can unlock the magic within a card like this. For someone who is shut off to the power of love and the beauty within the world, things will never change. However, if we open our eyes to our environment and the people within it, we will become aware that there are many gifts and new doorways towards fulfillment, just waiting to be accessed.
Open your eyes today and take advantage of the beauty and freshness of this card. The energy of the Ace of Cups is here for all of us, if only we allow our self to see it.
