The Five of Cups express feelings of loss and while the loss is real in your life it’s causing you to ignore what you still have. You’re focusing so much on these spilled cups that we see here that you are turning away from the upright cups pictured here that are still quite full so there still is hope it’s important to find where that hope is and shift the focus onto that.
5 of Cups Meaning
Emotional disappointment, loss, grief, and melancholy are represented by the five cups. There’s a realization that you’ve lost something deeply meaningful, and you’re aware that there’s no way to get it back. This could also indicate an inability to appreciate what is left. This is someone who gets upset about spilled milk.
With Five of Cups, the best line of action is to feel sorrowful.
Accept that you have survived and that you will ultimately be able to go on by looking at what has been lost and accepting that there is no way to get it back. Take the time to look at what has been lost and accept that you have survived and that you will eventually be able to move on.
