In my mind, the three of cups is about joyful celebration in partnership. What does that mean? It means today is a day to party. Find your friends. Find your loved ones. Share joy, share heartache, share good times, share bad times. I don’t care. As long as you share. Split a glass of wine. Heck, split a bottle of wine. It’s all good. Today, no matter where you find yourself even if you’re with complete strangers, or if you’re home alone with your dog and your cats like I am. The important thing is to share something joyful with those around you.
Like swords are the suit of thinking and rods are the suit of action, cups are the suit of the emotions. Sometimes, no matter how hard we try we end up feeling an emotional lack. We perhaps feel disconnected from that which is around us. The trick I think is to remember that we are connected to everything, and I mean everything, around us. There is more space in us than there is matter. We are ultimately atoms, protons, electrons spinning and flying through space just like the smallest bacterium or the largest blue giant star. It is all the same. It is all one. And, so, we owe it to ourselves and our brother and sister collections of atoms in the universe to honor and celebrate our presence right here and right now. Even if we can’t have conscious affirmation of that connection, we still have that connection.
