Five of Cups - Minor Arcana Card

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.

Suggested prompts:

upright: potential for positive outlook; opportunity to learn a lesson

right: releasing; shedding

left: latency; dormancy

reversed: discontent; deep disappointment
