Today’s card is the One of Water (Cups), also known as The Well. In a more traditional deck, this card would be called the Ace of Cups while in the Shapeshifter deck, each card in the minor arcana has a number and the element it represents. Water represents the emotions and matters of the heart, love in all its forms, friendship and compassion, gentle healing, and all matters concerning blood, the circulatory system, and menstrual flow. Water also represents bodies of water, all underwater creatures and amphibious creatures, ships and travel by sea, beaches, seashells, and seaweed. It comes sometimes in waves and storms, crashing into us with force and overwhelming us if we let it. It is also where the Moon resides, whose power affects the tidal flow of the Earth itself.
