The Five of Cups from The Steampunk Tarot

Your Tarot Mentor for August 2020:
The Five of Cups

Theme: Reframe

Action/Advice: Look for a positive angle

How it might show up generally: Releasing what wasn’t really yours to begin with, finding the positive in the picture

How it might show up in relationships:
Letting go of fantasies and working with the truth of the situation, okay but not ideal options

How it might show up in work/career:
Losing a client or a project, paying your dues until a better fitting position opens up


Traditionally, the image on this card shows someone mourning three over-turned cups, ignoring the two that are still upright and full of wine. By focusing only on the three spilt cups, the figure in the picture misses what is still available in the two left over cups. This card is a reminder to focus on what you have, not what you have lost. This is not to diminish your frustration – you have faced a disappointment. But something valuable remains. Refocus on what is flowing in your life, rather than dwelling on loss. Keep your eyes (and heart) open for what is still available to you. It’s right in front of you.
