Ace of Cups…one single gold cup, which is surrounded by
the ocean (element –Water). In the centre of the cup is
a heart (representing love). Above the cup, is a rainbow (representing
emotions). The sun is above with rays of sunlight beaming down.
The symbol I used that differs from the traditional Rider Waite
deck, is the heart, which I used because this represents the raw
beginning of love. The rainbow represents the emotions, the stirring
of feelings. I wanted to keep the card (ace of cups) as simple
but direct as possible, clear representation of what the card
means, without too many symbols.
Traditionally, this card means a new beginning in love, happiness
and all things of joy and excitement. My card is quite similar.
It means a new love, it can be a new relationship or a new start
to an old one, a new home or car, something that means great joy
for you, pregnancy or the new birth of a baby, a wedding and even
a gift that is from the heart. This card to me speaks of all the
things that make you feel that wonderful feeling you feel deep
in you stomach, the stirring of all you emotions and all the excitement
of new happiness. Reversed: Unhappiness, tears, things have taken
a turn for the worse, a great upheaval of emotions, a very upsetting
situation like getting your heart broken.
I used a lead pencil to sketch the outline of the design, and
then I coloured it with coloured markers. The original size 7.75cm
I am 34 years old and married with two beautiful daughters. I
grew up in the suburbs of Sydney (Australia) and later lived in
the country for many years. I now reside in the mid north coastal
town of Port Macquarie. Apart my interest in the Tarot, I love
to read and go to the movies, and living in a town surrounded
by beaches, I love to swim in the summer months. Baseball is a
huge part of our lives as my husband is baseball coach and I score
for the local club and some carnivals. I am no longer working
full time as I stay at home to care for my daughters, although
I will return some time in the future.
I cannot live
without music or animals, I love to hear all sorts of music, whether
it is walking with my Discman or at home I have to play my favorite
tunes. I love animals and would own a zoo if I could.
