Five of Cups


Five of Cups - Upright  



  • Loss, broken dreams, inability to move on, emotional confusion, destruction of ideas  





The Five of Cups is a card of disappointment and suggests that you are not quite happy with what you have achieved up until this point. You are lacking fulfilment in your efforts and because of this you are on the verge of giving up. This card suggests that something didn't quite turn out the way you wanted it to and this has caused negative feelings about your work to build up inside of you. The Five of Cups warns that you must move forward and stop dwelling on this disappointment. You will not achieve anything from wallowing in self-pity and will only set yourself back from your goals. Look for ways to salvage your work rather than give up on something that you have put a lot of energy into. You are capable to pull through, but to do those, you must be positive. 


Five of Cups - Reversed  



  • Newfound hope, new opportunities, rebuilding relationships, wisdom





The Five of Cups in reversed form suggests that you have finally learned to accept the past for what is is; the past, and are now recovering from the mistakes and misfortunes that you have experienced up until this point. You have learned not to dwell on what used to be and instead are focused on the future and what you want out of it. You are now ready to take the lessons that you have learned throughout the years and apply it to your future circumstances in order to reach your full potential and succeed in all aspects of life. The reversed Five of Cups encourages you to do this and asks that you open your heart to new opportunities during your journey ahead to your future. You must take risks and smile in the face of adversity and always remember to never look back.
