Suit of Cups

The 14 tarot cards of the Suit of Cups represent emotion, connection, expression, and relationships. The numbered Minor cards tend to relate to everyday events and situations, while the court cards may refer to people.

Each of these cards can, of course, represent the following meanings. Or their reverse. Or any other meanings that you read into them and develop for yourself. Different cards in different decks can also give different feelings. Trust yourself and study the cards; with time you will see their place in the deck. These simple keywords are a beginning sketch of the tarot cards.
