Traditionally, the image on this card shows someone mourning three over-turned cups, ignoring the two that are still upright and full of wine. If one focuses on the three spilt cups, one misses what is still available in the two left over. This is not to diminish your frustration over a loss or lack – you have faced a disappointment. But despite a small setback, something valuable remains. It’s not exactly what you wanted, but there is something for you in this. Keep your eyes (and heart) open this cycle for what is still available to you. It’s there…and nearby.
