If the Cups are prevalent in your tarot reading it indicates you are reacting to situations emotionally rather than rationally. Flights of romanticism will be the order of the day, lost in the ides of love, and creativity will be flowing from you. Anyone who has ever been in love knows how much inspiration can be derived from their most powerful of emotions.
But Water also represents the deep subconscious, and intuition. There is a mystical connection with this element, the birthplace of all earth’s life. It flows through, around, and over all of us, and as such connects us. Those who are sensitive pick up the ripples, which every act sends out like a stone dropped in a pond. The Suit of Cups can represent that sensitivity in the subject.
