The Aces are the start of the respective stories. Each contains all the unfiltered and unfocused potential, both good and bad, of each story, plot point, and outcome.

Card meaning

The story of the Ace of Cups is our search for our own Holy Grail. Its greatest symbol is a nod to the understanding that the life sustaining liquid found in such a holy vessel is our own emotional undercurrent, specifically the emotion of love.

While the Ace symbolizes the start of any great emotional journey, it is uncanny in predicting the start of a new relationship. If you are looking to work on a previously existing relationship, the energy of the Ace can’t help you.

Our emotions are a raging river that must be controlled, and sometimes that river can feel overwhelming. When the Ace appears in a reading, it is an indication that new emotions are about to enter your life, and that you are in a place where you are ready for an outpouring or overflowing show of emotion.

When romance isn’t indicated by context, a loving, emotional response is still the answer. This may require forgiveness, intuition, or a spiritual mindset to correctly refine and focus your path.
