Here we encounter the Suit of Cups. The Cup represents the vessel of the human soul. It is created empty, and our compulsion is to fill it and drink from it. It represents the qualities of sensuality, human connection, love and other strong emotions that bind us.
The Ace of Cups is a blessing. It is an empty cup with the promise that it will soon be filled. It is the starting point of a new passion. The traveler empties his glass in preparation. He must have room for the new experience which will fill it.
