Ace of Cups – replenishing my Heart

Today’s card is the Ace of Cups from the Goddess Tarot.  In this card, we see the full moon “contained—but not captured—within a golden cup surrounded by the ocean, source of all life”. This is a card of great emotional fulfillment and an abundance of Love. It is a card of generosity; giving Love from your heart without holding back but at the same time it is also a card of receiving this Love, which is freely given and will fill up your Heart to the brim and even more. The only thing we have to do is to be willing and deem ourselves worthy to receive it.
This weekend I have been visiting my mother and the overall experience was good. But I am quite exhausted now, so I wasn’t surprised when this card came up again. It has been following me around for the last four days. J

For today I see it this card as a reminder to take care of myself and do the things which will help me to fill my cup again. So after finishing this blog post, I am taking “the day off” and forget about every  “I have to”  until tomorrow.

    1. Yes it does indeed. Love is peculiar energy. It doesn't take time into consideration. It changes hours in minutes and vice versa and softens our memories of days gone by....

  5. Glad to hear you've had some quality time with your mom! And I understand the need to refill your cup!!! This morning I didn't feel at all prepared for the day... or the week for that matter! I pulled a card for one of the IG challenges: "A joyful reminder for Monday" - and the card that came up was the 9 of Cups ;) It filled me with the urge to do what makes me happy, whatever that is!

  6. Family can be wonderful, but also draining! Glad you're refilling your own cup, Ellen dear :) That moon speaks to me, also, of following your intuition, and of allowing youself to be passive, to let go to the flow of life.
