The Ace of Cups is a card of the heart. It exudes harmony, peace, tranquility, and the most powerful emotion of all, love. The Ace suggests that as we encounter life’s many emotional situations, we should always keep love as the highest goal. In this way, we will be guided to right action by the Divine.
Calla lilies represent purity, grace, hope, and love in action. As the representation of the Cup, the calla lily provides a resting place amidst the upheavals inherent in this emotional suit. Its spathe is the perfect shape for collecting water, holding the life force, and embracing love. Bleeding hearts depict our development and growth in the areas of compassion, peace, and acceptance. The Luna Moth is symbolic of psychic abilities, heightened sensory perceptions, and transformation. Moths are also creatures of the night and they are strongly attracted to light, which has led to the deeper meaning of the expression, Seeking the Light.
