Ace of Cups: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading
6-08-21 through 6-15-21
The Ace of Cups is this week’s Tarotcast card. The aces of the Tarot are the source or seed of their element’s energy. The Ace of Cups embodies the intrinsic powers of the element of Water. Fluidity, receptivity, Yin (Female) energy and water’s power to reflect are all contained in the Ace of Cups. The water element also symbolizes our emotions. The Ace represents our potential to feel and express a range of emotions.
All the Aces of the Tarot can be a bit confusing. They correspond to the Princesses (Pages) of each suit. This connection is stronger than that with cards 2 through 10 of their respective suits. This card has the Princess of Cups as its throne. Together they rule the Libra-Scorpio-Sagittarius celestial quadrant. This is the quadrant of the area above the North Pole and the Pacific Rim. Whew!
The Ace of Cups card represents the possibilities of desire for harmonious union. Love and affection. The mystery of romantic attraction, although all types of love can come into our lives this week.
We are ready to go to the core of our hearts and souls, and we are open and receptive to the deepest feelings of others too. The Ace of Cups holds a sense of newness – birth or rebirth. All things “new” will have a strong appeal. A new love, a new start, a new-found appreciation for life, new (or renewed) emotional connections.
On the Tree of Life this card represents the 1st sephiroth or sphere of Kether (the Crown, origin). Perceived through the element of Water; Briah, the Creative world. Our emotions. The divine soul, intuition.
The Ace of Cups holds the energy, qualities and characteristics of the three water signs. These are: 1) Sensitivity (Cancer), 2) desire (Scorpio) and 3) mysticism (Pisces).
In real-time astrology, the Sun continues its transit of Air-sign Gemini. Mercury is retrograde in Gemini. We’re dealing with miscommunications, delays and trouble with travel and electronic devices. Mercury remains in Gemini during the entire retrograde period (through June 22nd).
Venus is transiting Water-sign Cancer. Venus rules both Taurus and Libra. One benefit of this transit is compassion for others – we’re all members of the human family.
“Reach out your hand if your cup be empty, if your cup is full may it be again,
Let it be known there is a fountain, that was not made by the hands of men.”
On June 10th there is a New Moon Annular Solar Eclipse in Gemini. This energy brings new beginnings. We look to connect, communicate and learn. We’re active. Combined with the energy of this week’s card, we’re looking for connections of both the heart and mind. We’re curious and open to new experiences. This New Moon conjuncts the Sun and retrograde Mercury. We gain insight into past connections that influence our current situations.
When Mars enters Leo on June 11th, we follow our hearts. We are confident and courageous. We’re in passionate pursuit of our creativity. Avoid overconfidence and arrogance. With the heightened emotions of this week’s card, we may crave attention or create drama.
“It’s coming down on me – water like misery. It’s coming down on me –
I’m ready, rain on me…”
Saturn squares Uranus on June 14th. This generates friction and conflict. We’re torn between the need for freedom and the need for stability. Rules are harder to follow now, but without them life is chaotic. We chafe at conformity but long for security. We’re more frustrated by setbacks and delays.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes vague thinking. Irrational indulgence of the emotions. Creating emotional “tsunamis” that can overwhelm or threaten to drown others (or ourselves).
Let’s focus on inviting and welcoming the healing qualities of water into our lives this week.
Power colors: the true color of the Ace of Cups is pure white brilliance. Also grey, indigo, aquamarine, turquoise and all the various colors of water.
Power stones: aquamarine, beryl, opal, amethyst, blue tourmaline. Also, pearl, coral, blue topaz, blue fluorite, larimar, lapis lazuli and sodalite. Wear as jewelry or carry as power stones to channel the cleansing and liberating powers of water.
Power metals: mercury and copper. White metals (silver, white gold and platinum). All remind us of water’s power of reflection, refraction and brilliance.
Power fragrances: aloe, gardenia, lilac, lily of the valley, passionflower and rose. Lotuses, water lilies and all water plants. These help us connect with our innermost emotions in a calm, peaceful and powerful way.
Power foods: foods prepared with apple, lemon, lettuce, lotus root, thyme and seaweed. Teas brewed from chamomile or rose hips. All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
