Five of Cups

The Lord of Pleasure Lost

Cups, 05

A pretty straightforward card, really... the guy has lost a few of his cups, and in grieving over what's lost doesn't realize that not **everything** is lost. Hopefully he will eventually turn around and see the cups that are left on the shelf.

I'm thinking of changing this card, because the idea looks too much like Pamela Coleman Smith's and I don't really like the drawing anyway.


Anxiety and regrets. Disappointment, a sense of loss. Breakups. A need to reassess our own life.


A new lifestyle, new expectations bring on anxiety and stress. Unsuspected difficulties.
