The next group of nominees for my conglomerate deck of faves is pulled from the Aces of Cups.
If I continue at this pace, the final deck will have 468 cards and be the size of a small toaster.
As with the Aces of Wands, the selected cards must:
- be engaging
- have a sense of excitement and/or possibility
- make me think
The AnnaK's Ace is tranquil and thoughtful;
winter's frozen feelings
melting into a brand new spring.
The Alchemical Renewed layers a river supporting a fish which carries a beaker of heart's blood which supports new growth. Its symmetry pleases me.
I like the expression of cranky feistiness in the eye
of this little nautilus from the Animal Wisdom.
You can't just throw your feelings around; be sensible.
And don't make a mess - I just cleaned up around here!
Such eagerness to embark on life in the Fantastic Menagerie. I can smell the brisk sea air and hear the surf.
She's not even out of the shell and is already making a fashion statement; now that's confidence!
In the Gaian Tarot a young salmon sets out alone, intuition driving him forward. An evocative beginning to what we know is a journey with an heroic finish.
The Ace of Summer from the Victorian Fairy makes me feel so peaceful. All the tension in my shoulders dissolves as I look at it. Do water lilies have a scent?
Six nominees for the Ace of Cups-Water-Summer-Shells.
