Self-Care with Ace of Cups

Welcome to Self-Care with tarot! Each week we will go over one tarot card and explore how it can be used to inspire a self-care activity for the week. This week is the Ace of Cups.


Introduction and Meaning of the Card

SC-c1-01If you haven’t already, you can explore the basic meaning of this card here, from my Exploring Tarot series, and you can explore the emotional meaning here, from my Emotional Tarot series.

With that said, in the context of self-care, I take this card to mean that there is a need for creative expression. Emotion is energy in motion and one of the best ways to set that into motion is to harness it through any one of the creative arts.


My Suggested Self-Care Activity for the Week

Based on the meaning of this card, the activity I would suggest to try doing each day until next Wednesday is to find a creative activity that you enjoy doing that allows you to release pent up emotions.

This can be as simple and quiet as coloring, or if you have kids you can throw a dance party with them. Singing, playing an instrument, or composing music counts too. Writing poetry or fiction works. Cooking is just as much an art as it is a science. Whatever works for you, let your heart guide you.
