Tarot Contemplation – Five of Cups

5cups

As you can see by the image on this card, the figure is depicting sadness, mourning, disappointment, regret, and perhaps suffering and emotional adjustment …. and so, these feelings might be working on you today.  If you’re feeling sad or down today, honor those feelings.  Don’t try to push them away.  Whatever loss or disappointment you’ve experienced lately deserves to be felt.  When you take the time to really feel your feelings, you can process them, learn from them, and then move forward with greater self-awareness and wisdom.  The loss suffered is of something dear to the heart, whether a relationship, a loved possession, or a cherished dream.  It may be a loss voluntarily taken, but that doesn’t make it any less painful.  The lesson to be learned here is that with loss also comes change … and with change, opportunity.  We can avoid loss if we avoid pursuing our heart’s desire.  But, if we have the courage to risk loss, we may also gain true fulfillment.  Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
