In the tarot, the suit of cups is one of four suits within the Minor Arcana. The Minor Arcana generally symbolize everyday events. They are connected to the element of water. When you think about this suit, think about this element. Water can be a gentle, bubbling stream, or a tidal wave.
The suit of cups are an intuitive, emotional suit. In a tarot reading, they often represent one's emotional states, and can refer to people, relationships, and how you react towards others and your environment.
Suit of Cups Strengths
At its best, this element is deeply connected to the realm of feeling; it is naturally empathetic and compassionate. It is also connected to intuition, which can sometimes be so sharp that others perceive it as psychic ability. Intuition can also lend the cups with great creative potential. People connected to this suit are generally very talented in the arts, and may have a knack for daydreaming and fantasy.
The suit of cups tarot card meanings can sometimes also be related to healing and cleansing. This suit is adaptable and flowing.
Suit of Cups Weaknesses
At its worst however, the suit of cups is completely absorbed in the realm of emotion, and has little to do with logic, facts, or concrete observation. They can be so absorbed in their own fantasies, that the real world fades away. Reversed, the suit of cups often expresses emotional blocks and repression. Sometimes this can also lead to feeling creatively blocked.
