Loss, sorrow. Breaking up a relationship, being disappointed by a situation.

Artist Interpretation

At the far end of a Babylonian garden, a man stays and stares toward the wall. He is depicted from behind, and a spectator cannot see the man’s face, but his posture betrays his bad mood. Two cups stand on the ground, and three cups lie inverted, symbolizing situations of a loss or setback. In dim sunset light, the figure in the garden radiates negative energies of regret and disappointment.

Card Meaning

The loss could be in any form including money, property, job, or even reputation. There are the following features of this card:
