A general overview of the Cups cards

The suit of Cups corresponds to the suit of Hearts of a traditional card game. It is also associated with the element of water and the season of summer. The cards belonging to this suit are crossed by a feminine and passive principle which refers to the concepts of regeneration, healing and purification. They reveal the scope of universal human feelings, whether they relate to love, friendship or blood ties. Open above but firmly anchored to the Earth, the Cup is also a point of connection between material things and spiritual aspirations. It represents a collective consciousness of the universality of human destinies, of the equality of our souls and of the timelessness of our emotions. As part of a desire for harmony, this suit represents the wonderful gifts of tenderness, empathy and sharing. This is why its influence is so obvious in people whose professional choices led them to look after people who are suffering, like psychologists, nurses or social workers, for example.

When they appear upside down in a tarot draw, Cup cards most often refer to life's difficulties, to loneliness or to emotional imbalance. Therefore, they reflect the existence of conflicts or unresolved traumas, which will have to be fully examined in order to move on.

An unhappy love is still a joy.
