This suit refers to self-love, love of others, emotions and relationships of all kinds including business partnerships and friendships. They show the Subject’s emotional state and the effect it is having on their relationships. On the flip side, they show circumstances and issues within relationships that are affecting the Subject’s emotional state.
The emotional mood and feelings of the Subject will influence many things including their confidence levels, appearance, conduct and engagement with other people for better or for worse. This is why the Cups also denote self-love; the state of the Subject’s relationships with others, and how they react to it, bears a huge influence on their attitude toward themself.
All long term friendships and relationships undergo pressure and stress, it isn’t possible to have the perfect relationship all of the time. The experiences and lessons learned through love lost and gained can fundamentally change what the Subject wants out of life and the people they share it with. As new needs or opinions emerge, it can result in changes to the Subject’s existing relationships which can, in turn, generate conflict and upset or happiness and excitement. It can bring about the end of relationships, start new ones or prevent the Subject from indulging in a relationship because they fear getting hurt.
This is why it is important for the Subject to understand those with whom they have a relationship and the way in which they interact with them. Do these relationships bring good or bad into their lives? What do they need to do in order to achieve what they want?
The people depicted by Cups are driven by emotion and feeling. They love people and relationships and prioritise them above everything. They are attractive, kind, sensitive and so easy to fall in love with. Their more negative traits are that they can be overly-emotional, prone to overreacting and can think and act irrationally. On the one hand they can be the best, most engaging partners and, on the other, they can be smothering.
