Ace of Cups

A beautiful white-robed angel holds a large wine-filled cup aloft. A large white dove flies over a stylised sea decorated with gilt letters.

My Interpretation: The cup of plenty overflows, bringing true happiness.

Overflowing love and joy. True contentment, harmony and bliss. Peace, satisfaction and perfect union. Fertility and bountiful abundance. Spiritual fulfillment through unconditional love.

(Reversed: Intense emotional turmoil. Loneliness and insecurity within a relationship).

Edit notes: Different to v1.0 card as I've added more symbolism to assist readers (and the old Angel wasn't as pretty). I have used Angels for all of the Aces. This card is different to the Rider-Waite card, although hopefully still easily recognisable as the single Cup is fairly obvious. There are some of the symbols from the RWD - dove, water.

Dedicated to Tas Michael. May your cup always overflow :^)
