The Ace of Cups: Reversed Meanings
The Golden Tarot Ace’s
The Tarot Aces are most often welcomed in a draw, as they inspire newness in many aspects: growth, challenges, ideas, love, opportunities, perspectives New everything! They are usually seen as positive, if you are ready for change or to see things with a new vision. Aces are the root force, the spark or seed of the suit. They have no purpose yet, but are filled with raw potential. They are the active energy of the suit ready to be used. They can also indicate compass direction or season. They represent the seed of potential, the potential of what could happen next, because it hasn’t yet fully manifested. And within any Tarot reading, the Aces show us that possibility. It’s up to us to turn it into something further.
The Golden Tarot Suit of Cups
The Suit of Cups deals with the emotional level of consciousness and is associated with love, feelings, relationships and connections. Cups are about displays of emotion, expression of feelings and the role of emotions in relation to others. The Cups Tarot cards indicate that you are thinking with your heart rather than your head, and thus reflect your spontaneous responses and your habitual reactions to situations. Cups are also linked to creativity, romanticism, fantasy and imagination. The negative aspects of the Suit of Cups (i.e. when the Cups cards appear reversed) include being overly emotional or completely disengaged and dispassionate, having unrealistic expectations and fantasising about what could be. There may be repressed emotions, an inability to truly express oneself and a lack of creativity. The Suit of Cups traditionally represents the west and autumn. If using an ordinary deck of playing cards, Cups are represented by the Suit of Hearts.
Comprised of imagery from the European masters paintings, Golden Tarot cards pay tribute to artwork of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance. The Golden Tarot of Klimt is one of the best for artwork. Golden Tarot aims to reconnect the Tarot aesthetically and esoterically to its origins in early-renaissance Italy. From a time of violence, pestilence and oppression came poignant images of gentle beauty and human frailty.

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: In Llewellyns Classic Tarot, a hand comes out of a cloud on the right-hand side of the card, holding a chalice upright in the light blue sky. Of the four Aces in the Classic Tarot, only the Ace of Cups is offered by a hand emerging from the right-hand side of the card. Inside this chalice sits a dove bearing an olive branch, a symbol of peace. Water overflows the brim of the chalice creating five streams pouring into the body of water below, on whose surface rest five lotus blossoms. In Christian symbolism, the dove represents the Holy Spirit sent by God the Father as a symbol of divine love after the sacrifice of Christ on the cross to save humankind. The five streams and five lotus blossomssymbols of redemption through sacrificeare a reference to the five wounds Christ endured during his crucifixion. The Catholic Mass still makes use of the chalice to commemorate this event. There is a noticeable absence of dry land in the image on this card, as water and clouds dominate the scene.
Creative Tarot: The Rider-Waite-Smith differed from most decks in one important aspect: for the first time since the Sola Busca, all of the cards, including the Minor Arcana, were fully illustrated with human figures and other symbolic imagery. This is the full separation mark of the tarot from a deck of playing cards to a deck of divination cards. And this is where much of the meaning of the Minor Arcana cards became consolidated. Most of that is due to Smiths artwork. Waite wrote a few guides to the tarot, manuals on how to interpret each card, but Smiths imagery is what people remember, not Waites definitions. Waite believed it was his writings and scholarship that would newly define the tarot, but it turns out that sometimes the brush is even more powerful than the pen.
Complete Book of Tarot: Its a sign that you dont respect the value of the tarot if you dont charge for your readings.
