Beer Bottles and the Ace of Cups

Ace of Cups from the Smith Waite Tarot

The video below called Bottle Cap Blues by Chris Sumers is an amusing look at an incredible array of methods men use to open beer bottles.

It’s strait-forward and obvious that the men are just trying to get to their beer. But looking at it from a Tarot perspective, I had a slightly different take.

In Tarot, the Suit of Cups represents emotion and love. Its element is water.

The Ace of the suit suggests emotional renewal, innocent joy, and the seeds of compassion and romance.

When I was watching the video I started seeing the beer bottles as symbols for Cups, and from there it wasn’t hard to look at what the men were doing from a more magical perspective.

Beyond just trying to get a drink, metaphorically speaking, these toughies might also have been trying hard to crack that Ace and start down the road of the Suit of Love.
