Excerpt from Dark Days Tarot Guidebook by Emily Mundy:
Five of Cups
Did something spill? Do you dwell on a thirsty heart? Has a certain love leaked from you? Is it lost? The Five of Cups reminds you not to be drained of hope, not to be dry with disappointment; rather, to gulp at the overabundant potential of love, to sustain what remains of joy in the present moment. So the well of your desires feels shallow – yes. What an incentive to let it be filled again. Struggle less against the weight of discontent and the universe will nudge you toward the love you feel is missing.
upright: potential for positive outlook; opportunity to learn a lesson
right: releasing; shedding
