In this card, a white hand is emerging from a cloud and a chalice or cup is laid on its palm. Five streams of water are emerging from it and falling into a water body below that is full of water lilies. This card has a neutral grey background. The white hand represents divine power. A cloud is a sign of transformation and fertility. The Chalice is a significant symbol in many religions. Christians consider it a commemoration of the Last Supper. Muslim Sufis think that a chalice symbolizes sharing of blessings. To Wiccans, a chalice is a symbol of the womb, goddess, fertility, and feminine power. A chalice is considered to be associated with intuition and psychic powers as well. A dove is adding a piece of a communion wafer to the chalice. A dove is a symbol of peace, a spirit messenger, and the sign of Venus. The five streams of water that are coming out of the chalice show nurturing and also symbolize 5 senses. The water body beneath the chalice is a depiction of growth, fertility, and creativity. The water is a symbol of emotions and intuition. The water-lilies show innocence, purity, fertility, happiness, rebirth, and hope. There are 26 water droplets visible on the card as well. 26 is the gematric number for the name of God in Hebrew. There is a W or reversed M written at the bottom of the Chalice. This is overall a positive card of happiness, love, positive emotions, growth, fertility, and creativity.
