The 5 of Cups


The Five of Cups represents a lack of fulfilment or non-attainment of expected results. You may be feeling disappointed that a situation has not turned out as you had hoped, and instead of moving on to greener pastures, you are wallowing in self-pity and regret about what has been lost. The water spilled from the cups shows that the cause for regret is more emotional than financial. You are quickly becoming disillusioned with life and increasingly pessimistic about your future.

The 5 of Cups suggests trouble letting go of the past and learning form your mistakes.  However, just like all other cards of the Tarot, the 5 of Cups shows problems on one side and solutions on the other.  Yes, three cups are broken – but two still remain.  Which will you focus on?

The 5 of Cups tells you to be thankful for what is left.  Do not worry about what cannot be changed.  Instead, focus on turning a setback into a step forward.  Don’t let your tears stop you from seeing what is left over!


Weekly Advice


Remember that hindsight is much clearer than foresight and present-day wisdom is gained from the mistakes of the past.  Reflect on what led you to this point and understand what important lessons you can take away from the experience. Even when things go belly-up, there is always something positive that can be gained by reflecting on the lessons learned.
