Open your heart, ignite the flame in your being, and awaken the natural flow of life energy in your heart. When your heart opens, the world around you changes.’’

Mingtong Gu


A hand emerges from the clouds, offering a golden chalice. The cup is the human spirit, and the streams of water over flooding the cup represent divine energy. Then the water pours down from the cup into a body of water below; drop by drop becoming unified once again. The white dove descending from the heavens into the cup is another important symbol; representing peace, love and gift of life.

The message of the Ace of Cups is simple yet powerful: Be open and receptive to experience pure, unconditional love. This is not just an individual love; but for all life and creation.

Divine love is the very essence that unites all life. It is invisible, yet we can see the manifestations of it around us every day. Forgiveness, compassion, creativity, peace and joy are some of the examples of how we can embody our divine nature more.

The Ace of Cups signals new beginnings. Now it is time to let your inner potential shine ever brighter. Create from your heart space: Be open to receive more harmonious connections, fulfilling experiences and more opportunities to love and be loved.

Number 1 represents manifestation, creation and newness.
