Ten of Cups

Ten of CupsWe have realized our dream. Since the suit of Cups did not force us to work as hard as Coins it is important to retain our achievement and remember that a dream is not necessarily a material goal but rather a personal fulfillment.

The Ten of Cups is a card of joy, celebration, abundance, wealth and happiness. It is a card of success, family, kids and love. It indicates that we love life and enjoy what we have.

The Ten of Cups is a direct continuation of the Nine of Cups which indicated a wish that came true. In Ten of Cups the wish is being fulfilled over a long time. There is a major difference between the two cards since it is one thing to win the lottery and deposit millions in the bank but quite another to remain happy and satisfied after ten years. Many of the winners of sudden wealth or happiness cannot preserve it for long. The Ten of Cups indicates that we will be able to retain our wealth and happiness over time and our wish will materialize long term.

Eight of Cups

We tried so hard to control reality that we forgot what we originally wanted. Only when we let go of the struggle will we understand what is right for us.

Eight of CupsWe have been struggling for so long that we forget why we actually do so. We have tried everything but have still not reached the required result. The only thing we have not tried yet is to let go. The Eight of Cups call us to let go of our struggle!

Although we are not guaranteed that letting go will lead us to our goal, it will create serenity that will let us go inside ourselves. This way we will find why we struggled so hard and what is right for us. After understanding this point we will be able to go back and act in order to get what we want. But we might discover that we fought for the wrong cause all along, or that we fought for a cause that ceased to be right for us.

Seven of Cups

It is time to stop fantasizing. Our dream is possible – we need to implement it and turn it into a reality.

Seven of CupsIn Seven of Cups we can turn our dream into a reality. But to make it happen we need to get down to earth and stop building castles in the air.

Although we aim high, the actual results of our effort indicate a big gap between our plans and reality. Fulfilling our dream is possible but we might need to adjust our expectations to fit reality and the facts. It is important to plan ahead and understand what can realistically be done, act accordingly and stick to the goals we set to ourselves.

Six of Cups

We got a second chance. If we examined our past, realized our mistake and corrected it then we will succeed. Otherwise, we will find ourselves repeating past mistakes and getting nowhere.

Six of CupsWe get a second chance to confront an event from our past. The same situation, person or test repeat themselves. The big question is whether we learned from our previous mistakes. If we understood the lesson and applied the required corrections then the reincarnation of the past will be good for us, otherwise we are bound to repeat the same mistakes over and over again.

For example, we failed an exam but now get a chance to re-take it. If we do not prepare we will fail again. But if we understood where we went wrong and put in the effort we will succeed.

Six of pentacles

We got a break! Now we must not rest on our laurels but work hard to prove ourselves.

Six of pentaclesThe Six of Coins indicates that we got more than we deserved and basically have more luck than brains.

Although the card indicates victory we have to understand that we have been given a rare chance. We need to be aware of our tendency to rest on our laurels and do nothing, and especially in this case must work hard and prove that we are worthy of the opportunity we got.

For example, we might have scored a lucrative position with the employer assuming we master a certain software application -but in actuality we do not. What we really got is a grace period in which we need to work hard, quickly learn the application and prove our mastery of it.

Five of Cups

The doubts we experienced had turned out into unfounded feelings of despair which, in turn, lead to miscommunication. If we continue this trend our doubts will turn into a destructive, self-fulfilling prophecy.

Five of CupsThe Five of Cups indicates that as a result of the doubts that found their way into our heart in Four of Cups, we feel desperate, pessimistic and can only see the half-empty part of the glass. Our reactions are proportional to the situation and are based on groundless, unverified assumptions.

Our despair causes us to withdraw from reality and hide inside ourselves. We start to develop a depression and exhibit lack of interest in life. If we continue to act this way our environment will respond accordingly and eventually we will really find ourselves feeling desperate for a good reason.

It is important to understand that our despair is unfounded and that the situation is better than it seems. We must stop the destructive chain of events we found ourselves in via better communication with our environment and react to the situation at hand.

Areas of particular relevance: Depression, lack of trust, despair, separation, negative self-fulfilling prophesy lack of trust in employees or management.

Four of Cups

We experience doubts that do not allow us to see the reality of the situation -which is in actuality quite positive. We must get down to the source of our doubts and confront the facts.

Four of CupsIn the Four of Cups we get “poisoned” and consequently experience fears and doubts. We have lost faith in the on-going process and we feel that the celebration, as was indicated by Three of Cups, is over.

But it is important to understand that our feelings are wrong and so is our twisted perception of reality. We do not see the truth, worry for no reason and are stuck within a wrong view of the world.

To move forward we must get to the bottom of things. We need to understand the source of our doubts while confronting our fears. If we overcome our doubts and do not give in to gossip, rumors, and fears, we will be able to discover the truth and experience reality as it truly is: a lot better than what we believe.

Areas of particular relevance: Fear of abandonment, boredom and inactivity, bad advice, poisonous gossip, loneliness, depression, need for psychological/emotional treatment.

Three of Cups

We worked hard and succeeded. Now it is crucial that we take the time to celebrate so we do not stop the flow of abundance.

Three of CupsAfter we had completed a long process, worked hard, or persistently courted an idea, our faith and devotion to the cause has finally paid off. We have reached a milestone of success and basically got verification that all is well. In this card the flow is renewed and we sense what it was that we missed before. Now we can breathe a sigh of relief and start celebrating our success. Although we still have a long way to go we have reached an important milestone that has to be acknowledged and celebrated.

The Three of Cups emphasizes that we need to be joyful as it is an important part of our relationship with the universe. If we do not celebrate we will stop receiving the abundance we seek. Sometimes when we find a new job, a new mate or get good news, we are reluctant to make it public so we do not jinx it. This card calls upon us to get our emotions out into the open, to celebrate and share the good news since it is a very important to our ability to connect to the plenty in life.

Areas of particular relevance:Celebrations, having fun, enjoying the pleasures of life, flirtations, promotion –especially in big firms and institutions, the addition of a new child to the family.

Two of Cups

We must stop being passive, get to the bottom of things and initiate action that will lead to the desired results.

Two of CupsIn Two of Cups, very much in line with all the Two cards, we are “stuck” and need to find a way to move forward. The solution is simple: we have to initiate action! The card calls upon us to investigate and understand the issue at hand so we can be a few steps ahead of the other party. This advantage will lead to a situation in which we become a proactive suitor calling upon the other party while having initiative and advantage on our side. A proactive suitor, for example, can be a job seeker who is interviewing the employer -checking whether there is a match, versus a passive interviewee who simply answers questions and follow the standard procedure.

The Two of Cups emphasizes the idea that to achieve something we need to court it, express our feelings and act accordingly. We need to remember that our natural tendency is to wait for things to happen on their own. However, in order to succeed we must act with a strong conviction in our ability to change the current situation.

Areas of particular relevance: Love, relationships, running into unexpected people, romance in the workplace, a situation in which we are being scrutinized and tested.

Ace of Cups

Suddenly, but after we underwent a process in which we had realized that we deserve abundance in our lives, the obstacles disappear and we achieve our goal.

Ace of CupsThe Ace of Cups represents faith, the ability to receive and enjoy abundance and prosperity, as well as accepting and embracing change. The appearance of the card indicates that previously the issue at hand was stuck without progress but the entrance of a new energy removes the obstacles and allows us to move forward in the desired direction.

Although seemingly the card indicates that we are passive, in reality a big change has began or is about to begin in our lives: we start to believe and change our point of view regarding the world around us. In the past we were cynical and saw only the negative side of things, but faith made us see and embrace all the goodness the world has to offer.

It is important to understand that since our newly found faith is the cause of the desire change in our lives we must not doubt our new approach. The more we believe the faster we will experience the desired results. We need to open our heart, leave our past behind and simply let life lead us in the right direction.

Knight of Cups

The Daydreamer

Knight of CupsWe are waiting for our fantasy to come true. Surprisingly, it might actually happen but precisely when it does we will withdraw ourselves from the process.

Correction: We need to be ready for the option that our dream might come true and give it a fair chance to materialize. Once we do, we will see it is right for us.

The Knight of Coins indicates that we are too passive regarding the subject at hand and are waiting for something to happen. We are waiting for the knight in the shining armor, the savior –the one who will overcome all the obstacles and create the big change in our lives.

Surprisingly, the card indicates that something will indeed happen to mitigate our difficulties. But we will not be ready for it to happen and when the help does arrive we will tend to dismiss and even resist it. All we have to do is continue believing and allow the process to happen – at the end of which the Knight will turn into an Ace (of cups).

King of Cups

The Deprived

King of CupsWe are motivated by a strong need for emotional stability. We feel that others do not care about us and that we are not being loved. We therefore surround ourselves with the known and the familiar –those surroundings or people who will not hurt us. Consequently we find it hard to function in other surroundings or circumstances.

Correction: We need to think more of our career and personal fulfillment.

The king of Wands represents a state of mind in which we strive for stability at all costs. We do everything we can to get stability in our homes, in our relationships, in our workplace, etc.

We need to check why do we do things: are we acting out of fear to lose something we care about? Are we trying to pacify others so we get loved in return? If the answer is positive, it is time we adapt a much healthier approach to life, an approach in which we focus more on our goals and personal fulfillment.
