Five Of Cups

The Five of Cups carries with it the energy of bereavement. Yet the woman in our image is inflicted with more than just loss – she is inflicted by an inability to accept it. There are three broken cups on the floor, and two intact ones on the table. What do we choose to focus on? When this card appears for you, you are being asked to shift your perspective around loss and start seeing it as an opportunity for growth. Do you dwell on the negative, losing sight of the positive, or do you appreciate that which you do have? What spiritual practices do you use to practice Shukur or gratitude?
