Another gloomy card for today: the Five of cups from the Druidcraft Tarot. We see a cloaked figure with a sad demeanor, staring over the lake where a salmon is being chased by an otter. (Cerridwen is chasing Taliesin) Next to him there are three empty cups fallen over. It looks like everything is lost. But behind him two filled cups are still standing. The question is: Which cups is he going to focus on?
Maybe it is time to take off this cloak of sadness and emotional protection. The otter (playfulness) is chasing the salmon (inner wisdom and reflection) Perhaps this fish could do with some fooling around.
If the man would turn around and look at the two cups behind him he would see that all is not is lost. Maybe a sip or two from these cups will restore his believe in the future. Sometimes it is a good thing to turn around and see how far we’ve come and how much we have achieved. Yesterday Sycamore gave me the advise to make a list of all that I have gone through and came out okay on the other side. This has given me a renewed sense of trust and believe in myself.
So all and all in the end this is quite a positive card. Every cloud has a silver lining: Every tarot card too.J
