Ace of CupsThe Minor Arcana: Cups

The Cards:

The suit of Cups in general relates to things and people which are emotional, often loving, and uplifting. It is generally associated with the element of water, and thus, astrologically associated with the signs of Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio.

Not only do cups relate to love and lovers, but also to any emotion, (even those generally considered negative) as well as to brotherly love, and to the confusion that emotions in general can create for most of us at certain times.

Cups relationships do not always involve other people – a reading with a series of cups can have to do with a need for self-love, self-development, self esteem, and so on. In other words your relationship with yourself.
