Cups Tarot Cards Meanings


The Cups represent the vessel and the element of water.  Different cups show you different things, such as the Suit of Cups, which usually deals with females and emotional situations that come in life.

Some symbols are used with these cards, and the vessel is usually something that will hold liquid, which is considered a female (cup).  So when looking at the Suit of Cups, it represents someone that will think with logic and someone strong in their spirituality.

If you see the Cups a lot when a reading is happening, it probably means that you are someone that is very emotional and that you are personal to what the reading is telling you.

There are times when your emotions will be good and times when they will be bad, so if there is a reading that you get and it has a lot of cups in, chances are it can be either a good reading or a bad reading.
