Stay in touch with your feelings.
The tarot card of the day is the Ace of Cups.
You might be feeling a rush of emotions and today, The Ace of Cups wants to remind you that your feelings, be they good or bad, are valid.
The cup has five streams of water overflowing from the brim. The streams represent our five senses: sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch. The water is a symbol of your emotions, while the chalice is a symbol of their container. It suggests that you are in touch with your feelings, and they are running high. They should be acknowledged, felt, and dealt with in a healthy way.
Today, take some time for yourself to process your feelings. Whether that means journaling, talking to a friend, or spending time in nature, do what you need to do to nurture your emotions.
Staying in touch with your feelings might sound exhausting. However, the hand holding the cup means you are not a victim of your feelings, but rather their master. Use your emotional intelligence to guide you through whatever challenges you may be facing. You can choose how to react to your emotions, and you can choose to let them go. Above all else, this card is a reminder that you have the power to control your own destiny.
Say yes to every challenge.
If you pull this card while currently facing a challenge, you can take it as a sign that the path is looking promising! This does not necessarily mean that the challenge will be easy, but it does mean that you are more than capable of rising to meet it.
If you are not currently facing a challenge, then right now is a good time to embark on new challenges and tasks. For example, if you've been considering starting your own online business, this is a good time to go for it. Get your notebook, plan your store, and create a website. This card suggests that better things are on the horizon. So get motivated, be creative, and take action now.
In with the new, out with the old.
What's new for you? Let's dive deeper. The upright Ace of Cups is an indicator of forming new relationships that have the ability to make you emotionally fulfilled. If you're single and looking for love, this is a good time to put yourself out there.
If you are not looking for romance, then maybe you can expand your social circle. Sure, making friends is incredibly daunting, no matter what age you are. But the Ace of Cups is a reminder to be open to new people, even if they seem daunting at first.
For those who are already in a romantic relationship, the Ace of Cups suggests that you and your partner are on the same page emotionally. This means it's a good time to deepen your connection with one another through open and honest communication. You may even find yourself considering starting a family or taking your relationship to the next level. Don't waste another second, seize the opportunity while it's there.
Sometimes it's about giving, not taking.
One of the keywords of the Ace of Cups is "compassion". This card is all about connecting with others, and what better way to do that than by giving of yourself? This does not necessarily mean that you have to put your own needs on the backburner. It just means that you have the power to bring happiness to those around you.
The Ace of Cups is a message for us to always start at the place of love. Being kind and compassionate can help other people, and make you feel good too. If we initiate our actions based on empathy, love, and compassion, then our result will be blessed.
For now, you can show your compassion for others in small ways. If you have the money, why not make a small donation to a cause close to your heart? You can also be kind to others without spending a dime.
Think about someone closest to you who might need help or advice. Does your sister seem down lately? How is your neighbor coping with her new baby? Check in with them, and see if there is anything you can do to make their day a little brighter. Soon, you'll find that your acts of kindness will come back to you tenfold.
