Five of Cups

Five of Cups Keyword: Sorrow, disappointment
Attributes: Loss of a relationship, feeling hurt but the outlook is good, stop crying over spilt milk
Element: Water

Numerology: Fives indicate partnership
Conventional suit: Hearts
Three fives in a spread: stability, routine activities
Four fives in a spread: Competition or rivalry

This may suggest a failed relationship or a tragedy; it may also represent a gift, inheritance of opportunity or possibly a marriage or partnership but one which in the event, falls below expectations.

Inability to act is also indicated, because of grief, sadness or regret or believing that you made the wrong choice. The key here is to recognise what you still have and move on. Grief is a healing process but it proceeds in its own time and cannot be rushed.
