The Suit of Cups is all about Emotions, and the choices we make because of them.
The Suit of Cups contains art that is heavily laden with images of water and seems to be happening in the springtime when the snow has melted and water runs over the land while seeking its home in the ocean.
The Suit of Cups seems to represent the same sensation for us as we experience breaking free of our emotions. They can swamp and overwhelm us or be gathered into so many cups that we don’t know what to choose.
This leads to another element of cups which comes with the reversal of the element or being out of our minds a little bit due to drugs and alcohol. It can also mean that we are separating from our logical mind so that we can drift in unending art and creativity or just be swamped by our emotions without knowing how to handle it.
If we learn to bring our emotions into balance and work with the medicine of enlightenment, we can be like the queen of wands and delve into our intuition at will and bring forth marvelous creations.
