Alison Cross - Ace of Cups
Ace of Cups: Ace of Cups: an opportunity, a seed or a beginning in the realms of relationships, emotions or creativity. Reversed: The fears associated with new relationships, emotions or creativity. The background green is associated with the heart chakra and this colour can be useful when focusing on healing. The background pink is associated with love and here it is offered in its widest possible sense of universal love. The chalice-shaped cup reminds us that love is a journey, a quest. We strive to be in the service of Love. Attribution: original Anahata chakra (heart chakra) image on front of chalice is used under Creative Commons license from Morgan Phoenix.
