There are also spreads where the tarot cards pulled are placed in a horizontal position.

Ace of Cups – Love and Relationships
The Ace of Cups would signify that your relationship is still new, maybe you have been a couple of years together, but you still have not talked about commitment or make things official. There are always the initial sparks in the relationship. You may even be seeing the relationship or your partner through rose-colored glasses.
On the other hand, if you have been in this relationship for quite some time, it can indicate a moment of renewal of old passionate feelings or finding intimacy again if you have been asking yourself if this is the relationship to be in, that this card indicates that your partner’s offer of a romantic connection is sincere.
How someone sees you or feels about you?
The answer would be they see you as someone delicate, who has a soft side and maybe not always understands jokes, and taking it too close to their heart, therefore, causing conflict. It can also indicate that your partner feels like they have found the one to be with, and if everything works out beautifully, they have already pictured the proposal and a life together with you.
Just starting dating?
If you have started dating this new person, the Ace of Cups indicates that your person is coming to you with their heart on their sleeve. There is not a thing they have hidden from you, and if they say they want you, then that’s the truth. If you have to overthink it, it may be because of your issues with past lovers or experiences, but your date is being straight forward regarding their intention and feelings towards you. They see you as someone they want to take care of and someone they may build something with.
What not to do?
In terms of what not to do, it would advise you to open your heart and let your partner in it. Maybe you have put up walls to protect your heart and yourself because you may have gone through difficult things in the past, and you are not willing to be that vulnerable anymore. The thing is that you won’t enjoy life or love unless you are truly open to receive it. Also, you can’t hold accountable your partner for things that other persons have done to you in the past.
Reverse Position (Love and Relationships)
If you pull the Ace of Cups, reversed indicates that you lack healthy emotions in the relationship. Be it a new or old relationship, you or your partner may have closed their heart toward the other, causing some conflict and doubts. If you have been thinking about breaking things off, or asking yourself if the relationship is over, then this card confirms that there is nothing else to take from it, and you should let it go. This can be a temporary situation of withdrawing from one another or a permanent decision that has not been communicated to the other person.
