Five of Cups
The Five of Cups suggests that you are upset over a loss or disappointment. The three cups spilled at the mans feet in the picture indicate the loss youre experiencing. You may not be aware of the strong support system that remains, indicated by the two cups still standing. Your friends and loved ones are offering their support but you are focusing too much on the disappointment. The river in the image suggests the troubled emotions that are making you feel lost and distant; you are cutting yourself off from the joy and love associated with home. Remember to notice the bridge that isnt far from view. It can lead you home again, into the arms of your loved ones.
