Loss, sorrow. Breaking up a relationship, being disappointed by a situation.
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.
Five of Cups represents a situation of loss and regret. Often it is connected with a wrong choice that was made before. Quarrels and separation are possible in family life. The loss could be in any form including money, property, job, or even reputation. There are the following features of this card:
– feeling grieving;
– experiencing self-pity;
– being ready to cry;
– acknowledging a wrong path.
