The Ace of Cups in the Mother Tarot Deck suggests self-love, self-touch, and sex with the self. Stimulating one’s own root encourages transformative healing, and wonderfully, this tool is always available to us.
Aces consider that which is ours to own and protect: in the case of the suit of cups (water), it is our sensuality. When this card appears, it’s time to make time for yourself. Dress up for yourself. Adorn yourself for yourself. Look at yourself. Touch yourself as deeply and as intentionally as is needed to send your soul soaring.
Practicing self-touch is a surefire way to build a baseline of emotional resilience. In the right setting and mindset, it is a healing act; a form of self-soothing. Try stacking habits, combining journaling with masturbation. Take your toys and your notebook out each time, and you might be surprised at what your touch stirs and reveals.
