The Element of Water

The Element of Water

We see here the powerful energy of water represented by a wave that starts out as a gentle roll and ends up crashing against the shore. The element of water is the ruler of our emotions and our connection to spirit. It can encompass a wide range of energies from the calmness of love, serenity, creativity, and compassion to its more destructive forms including fear, jealousy, rage and worry.

In order for the inspiration of the fire element to continue, it needs the nurturing emotion of water so that the inspirational ideas will evolve, expand and grow.

In a deck of playing cards it is the suit of hearts, in tarot it is cups, chalices, vessels, or cauldrons. If you have many cups in a reading, it means your feelings are manifesting on an unconscious or internal level, are coming from the heart and you are probably relying on the strength of intuition. It is important to be aware of your emotions for just as calm waters refresh, nurture and feed the earth so turbulent stormy water energy can create pain and destruction.
