– Ace of Cups –
This card represents the Grail, the Sacred Cup from which Spiritual Regeneration comes. Symbolically, the cup with the lid are naturally the most significant elements: the actual cup represents the plane of matter and everyday reality, while the lid symbolizes the higher level, the plane of the sublime, which is identified with the transcendental dimension.

The Ace of Cups is directly associated with love, affection, abundance and fertility. It is a symbol of great protection, as it reveals that a powerful spiritual force is at work.

– Two of Cups –
In this card we see depicted two cups slightly smaller than the Ace, of equal size and perfectly symmetrical: because of their parallelism and arrangement, they possess considerable esoteric and divinatory power. The Two of Cups can represent an Encounter that takes place under the influence of love or friendship: it is symbolic of the duality of objects and, at the same time, of the common experiences of people. Sometimes this card is regarded as the symbol of rational thinking and lucidity; it symbolizes the transmutation of passions upward through wisdom.

– Four of Cups –
This card is represented by four cups, the placement of which is perfectly symmetrical: the two cups placed in the upper part of the card, symbolize the balance of forces of the psychic plane, while the pair placed in the lower part, represents the balance of forces of the material plane. The number 4, a symbol of maturity and stability, in analogy with the figure of the square representing it, alludes to all that is solid and accomplished, but limited by its own rigidity. This harmonic perfection may be real, but sometimes only apparent: the human soul often feels the need for novelty, to find something that will bring back a real enthusiasm for life. In this sine the card may express dissatisfaction and a lack of disposition to truly appreciate what one has.

– Five of Cups –
The number 5, before the rules dictated by the numerology of the Pythagorean school, was considered deeply inauspicious. The card indicates a period when one must weigh every action carefully, because the new is not necessarily always positive. The consultant is at the center of a situation, of family discussions: his plans will be realized, but by overcoming difficult, often painful trials. Bitterness, regret, sadness are the main emotions expressed by the card. Disappointment often comes with bitterness, loss and dissatisfaction, are an essential condition for the fullness of fulfillment. In the emotional and occupational spheres, the consultant is seeking new forms of fulfillment: like the central cup in the figure, he or she must make a choice that nonetheless has viable alternatives.

This Arcanum is very fluid, highly sensitive and easily affected by the presence of neighboring cards. Built on the static and dual symbolism of the number 8, it has a balance that is basically good, but which does not exclude, in the short term, the formation of a difficult situation. It can signal problems in the sexual sphere, especially when referring to a woman, but also frigidity or excessive modesty.

8 of cups

– Nine of Cups –
This card represents the tendency to live happily and harmoniously, while rejecting chaos and disorder. Affectively, it expresses a stable, long-lasting relationship between two people who do everything to make the relationship harmonious and constructive. The very arrangement of the cups, which appear to be grouped in three equal triads, are charged with emblematicity. Each of the cups found in the center of the triads represents the synthesis of the characteristics of the others: in fact, it is for this reason that the Nine of Cups card represents harmony and the unity of opposites. The side cups symbolize the changes affecting the life of the consultant, while the central cups indicate immobility and conformity, that is, opposition to any transformation.
