09/28/11: Acting on What you Value | Ace of Cups


“The purpose of our lives is to be happy.” –Dalai Lama

I had an astrology reading recently. She noted I’m wrapping up a phase of defining what I truly value. You’d think that wouldn’t be much of surprise, wouldn’t you? But it was. Without the benefit of conscious awareness, that is exactly what I’ve been doing. Today’s Tarot forecast showed up to drive the point home.

We’ve got the Ace of Cups or Root of the Powers of Water, associated with the Water Element. Aces mark potential and  beginnings: young, sometimes fragile energy. As Water, this ace may appear as indication of a new love of any type, a renewed passion of some sort, or even to herald burgeoning development of intuitive ability. The Water element rules feelings, imagination, and psychic ability.

Tarot Nova excels via simplicity, and this Ace is a great example—our hand holds the cup. We have the power. Ivy and greenery exemplifies growth spurred through acting in concert with our feelings. Grapes feed us physically, the flower shows us blossoming spiritually, all accomplished through the virtue of an open heart.

Having what someone else values is irrelevant. Knowing clearly what YOU value, so you can make sure you live in concert, brings the deepest reward.

The Ace of Cups carries a message both simple and profound: follow your heart. Even when you don’t know the way, your heart does.

Are you following your heart yet? If not, can you move in that direction?
