Five – Cups
The young man stares listlessly as he sits in a slumped and dejected posture. The water and bounty that he believes is slipping away could be rescued by righting the cup should he only make the effort.
The Five of Cups speaks about accepting less than what we are worth. It talks about unhappiness buried beneath abundance. The Five of Cups can warn us about those who are false friends or show the caution of settling for less than real love in a marriage. The Five can also speak of the bounty of inheritance that is weighted down by the loss of someone we cared for. If the Five of Cups looks to be feeling sorry for himself, you might just be right. It may be time for a new alliance – with judicious choice, return to a positive friendship from the past, or just right the cup to save the endless bounty which flows from it.
