DECK: Mystical Cats Tarot
CARD: Ace of Sea (Ace of Cups)
POSITION: Reversed / Inverted
In Mystical Cats Tarot, the Sea Clan cards are the same as the cards in the Suit of Cups in any of the Waite Tarot decks. With this card, the Ace of Sea can be read in much the same way as the Ace of Cups.
According to “The Tales of Mystical Cats,” the emblem for the Sea Cats signifies that you’re entering the territory of the Sea Clan. Their territory is a plan where imagination and emotions may freely flow. The cats here live by the way of love, happy to welcome you, and happy to listen to your dreams.
What advice does this card give you?
The Ace of Sea is usually a happy card to draw. But when it’s drawn in the reversed or inverted position, it means that something is receding from you. That may be something tangible or your own emotional response to something. If you feel like something is getting away from you, this card advises you to let it go.
You may be feeling very sad about something. The Ace of Sea advises you to let your sadness flow and accept it as part of the natural flow of things. Trust that happiness will return in time. Also, if you drew the card for a question, the answer is no.
If you’re looking for more guidance from this card, there’s also the interpretations for the traditional Ace of Cups to consider. Drawing the Ace of Cups reversed often represents blocked or repressed emotions. That interpretation lines up with what the Mystical Cats Tarot reading would suggest.
But, the interesting thing is that the traditional reading of the Ace of Cups in the reversed position is to actually fight through the emotion, using the emotional energy to carry you forward. The reversed Ace of Cups can actually mean that you it’s possible to over-express your emotions. But, like the Ace of Sea would suggest, it can mean the opposite, as well.
In any case, you may be feeling emotionally drained or exhausted. Take a moment to reflect on how you are feeling and how it may be affecting your reactions and responses to everyday things.
You may also be holding back in your relationship with a best friend, family member, or partner, out of fear of getting hurt or losing that relationship. So, you must stay open and truthful with your partner, friend, or family member in order for that relationship to move forward.
So, if you’re blocking or repressing some powerful emotion, it’s time to find a way to constructively and positively release it. Let go of any fear you have that may be stopping you from going forward with something. Release any anger, frustration, or sadness that you may be holding in through some creative outlet, such as art, writing, or singing. Generally speaking, if you’re bottling up some negative energy, it’s time to turn it into a positive.
