Ace of Cups Reversed

There is an imbalance right now. You might be feeling sensitive and overly emotional at the moment. Or you could be drained and feeling hollow and empty.

Or have you been using emotion to manipulate someone? Pulling on their heartstrings to get your way?

Have you been ignoring your intuition? Pushing forward even though you might be on the wrong path? It’s time to stop and listen to your heart.

Ace of Cups Love

The Ace of Cups could mean you’ve fallen in love with someone and like water is streaming from the cup, your feelings are flowing freely. This could be the beginning of a new romance, or a deepening of a current relationship. You’re really getting to know one another and falling even deeper in love.

The Ace also indicates an intimate gathering, maybe a romantic weekend or even a honeymoon. It’s a chance to embrace your partner fully and share your feelings. You might have been putting off “the relationship talk,” but now is the time to have it.

The Ace of Cups is also about feeling overwhelmed. You might be having trouble navigating all of these emotions. Again, see how the cup is running over? It’s overfilled. This doesn’t necessarily mean you are experiencing light, happy emotions. You might be feeling grief or sadness. Maybe you’ve just lost a loved one or a relationship has ended. Have a look at the cards around this one for a clearer picture. And while this might be painful now, balance will return eventually.

This card also indicates conception or birth, particularly if The Empress is also in the reading.
