This card represents a lack of fulfilment. Expectations not being met. You are feeling disappointed that a situation has not turned out as you had hoped. Either you or someone else didn’t live up to the expectation. Feelings of regret about what has been lost. But most of all this card speaks of sadness. The sadness that arises when you, finally, cut your losses. Since this is a Cup card, it is connected to relationships, emotions and feelings. It is being worn out from hoping and trying and bending your view on reality. It usually depicts the situation where you’ve had a series of let downs. The four fallen cups represent your efforts in having your expectations met. But the cups that we offered have not been recieved or used. The content is spilled.
No wonder you’re feeling blue.....
Let us take a deeper look into what is depicted on this card. Not all hope is lost.
First thing that catches the eye, is the beautifull color Royal Blue. Whenever I see this color in an aura , it tells me this person is in a deep transformation of a spiritual kind. This is also the color that starts to emerge when these deep lessons are truly incorperated. So placed in time, this means this transformational process has started some time ago.
Now the time has arrived to accept the reality . The lesson is truly learned, the knowledge gained. The wisdom of the soul has blended in with the human experience. While you’ve been living your life, your soul has been resting, assessing, thinking things over, musing, considering new directions. Making space to give birth to the new.
The musing of the soul has been the undercurrent in this situation. And now it is aligning you with your higher purpose. The Lady is done resting, she got up on her feet, holding her inner light. She is about to follow the golden angel, her true self, who is running away from the grey pompous building. The golden angel is on its way to a more suitable space, a better mindframe, hopes that better serve your true nature.
What is lost and mourned is in the past, and doesn’t serve you anymore. See the golden reflection on her dress. Her urgency to follow the golden angel closely.
When the mourning is done, know that you will have gained some valuable life lesson. Wear your colors in a Royal way, you’ve earned them!
