Five of Cups
Keywords: disappointment, loss, hurt, sorrow, grieving, regret, depression
General meaning: You have suffered a loss and are now moving through the grieving process. The pain is real and you must move through it. This card is all about deep loss and regret. The energy here can get stuck in wallow mode. Can you forgive and move on? There is something very good on the horizon but if you only choose to look at what you have lost you will never be able to see what you can have. Put the water under the bridge and start again.
Reversed: A whole new emotional outlook is at hand. It’s time to move on and let that old shizz go. Recovery time, baby. You’re ready to get on with your life. Major healing ahead. Forgiveness work.
Affirmation: I am ready to deal with my losses and regrets in a healthy manner.
Theme song: “I’ll Be Missing You” by Puff Daddy and Faith Evans
Journaling prompt: Think of a time when you experienced a great loss. How did you cope? What did you do to move forward? Journal about your process.
Let’s talk a little bit bout the Five of Cups
The loss is part of growin’ up
You can’t avoid it or run away
Sooner or later every dog has his day
Even a thug has to feel some pain
No one is immune, we all the same
Learn from the grief but let it go
It’s all part of the journey, dig it yo.
