5 of Cups

Meaning

When the 5 of cups appears in a reading, you are being met with a disappointment of some sort. This is not the kind of disappointment that is going to change your life. But rather, one that may create sadness in the day. Maybe someone has disappointed you, or you did not get a work bonus or improvement as you had hoped. Some hope is lost. This card could also simply mean that you miss someone that lives far away, or that you feel sad for someone that is going through something that is much more traumatic than what you may be feeling at this time.
