Q: What does the ACE of cups tarot card mean in my love reading?

“Letting Your Love Shine”

Now is the time to let your love shine, and to let your cup run over with love, affection and vitality. The Ace of Cups is a card of promise and opportunity, a new or fresh perspective that is mirrored right back to you by the Universe.

All Aces are tied to new unformed energy. So even if it does manifest as something material for you — a new romantic interest or some happy news — the bottom line is that it creates a “feel good” energy which reverberates throughout your very being.

As this is the Ace of Cups, and Cups refer to emotions, intuition and feelings, it’s likely to manifest on one of these levels. Love and romance for starters. But also affection, intimacy, sharing, closeness and the expression of feelings.

This card represents opportunities for happiness and fulfillment. It speaks of fertility, birth, newness and promise. It speaks of seeing every day as a brand new day, ripe with creative potential and opportunity.

Think of how many opportunities you have — some you may not have yet considered. You could be thinking of starting a new creative project or breathing life into one you’d put on hold. Or you may be the recipient of some happy news — such as the birth of a child or a loved one planning a wedding.

The Ace of Cups encourages you to follow your heart and let love lead the way. It reminds you that there is still a lot of good in the world and that all of the love you send out will be returned to you in kind.

You may be starting a new relationship or expressing yourself romantically — whether or not a serious relationship develops from that flirtation. You could hear from an old love (or feel the urge to reach out to someone from your past), or you could be planning a romantic getaway with a loved one.

It’s the process of falling in love that reveals to you your purest, most perfect potential. It’s when you put your best foot forward and show the world what you’re capable of — and the Universe responds in kind.

If you’re already in an established relationship, this can refer to a renewal of affection and passion. It can represent a rebirth, a more formal commitment or the onset of a new chapter in your relationship.

It’s all about seeing your capacity to love and express feelings mirrored right back to you — through a new love interest, a friend or family member, or the eyes of a child. The Ace of Cups refers to feelings, emotions, intuition and most importantly “love” in its purest form.
