In the Ace of Cups card, there is a hand emanating from the clouds holding out a cup, as if in a offer to the querent to take a drink. This cup is overflowing with sparkling water which symbolizes pure and pristine emotion. If you take this offer, drinking from this cup will surely bring you nothing short of emotional as well as spiritual fulfillment.
The cup has five streams of water overflowing from the brim. These five streams represent the power of intuition and show the importance of listening to your inner voice. In order to obtain the kind of emotional or spiritual fulfillment that is depicted in the Ace of Cups, the querent will need to follow this inner voice, and remain true to it, regardless of the situation. This will require emotional discipline, but the rewards that this can bring are hinted at within the card itself: overflowing joy and happiness.
One of happiest cards to get in a love tarot reading, the Ace of Cups suggests the awakening of new feelings. Should you be single, you may find yourself developing a new romantic relationship, or a friendship that will be deeply meaningful to you. If you are already in a relationship, a new stage of intimacy, compassion and understanding can be reached between the two of you. The Ace of Cups tarot love meaning signals there is an opportunity for you now to grow emotionally, spiritually and creatively, should you take the cup and drink. At this time, decisions made from feelings and intuition are favored; learn to trust what your gut says and avoid over-analyzing situations.

Some sadness and emotional upset can be signaled by the reversed Ace of Cups tarot love meaning. This may have stemmed from an argument or even a break up, leaving you to feel alone and vulnerable. This card can also simply mean feeling a bit somber about your current relationship, or perhaps having a temporary loss of faith. Something is blocking you from being able to experience, give and receive true love. You may not be meeting your partner, or others in general, with an open heart. It is likely that insecurity is playing a strong role; we must all be able to love ourselves before we can truly love another person. Try and look inward, and give yourself the love that you want before seeking it in another.
