Five of Cups: Regret
Added at 11:19 on 12 May 2021
Taking this card always reminds us that there is hope, if not for the full repair of a situation, then for things to start again on a new level. For example, an intimate relationship breaks, now being a friendship. There is always more to come with the Five of Cups.
It plunges us into grief. We mourn the loss of that which has gone from our lives. At times, this is just spilt milk, as is often mentioned with this card, and other times the losses are far deeper. Yet life does go on. When we are ready, we can take the remaining Two of Cups and work on repairing the emotional side of life.
If this post calls to you today, and you’re reading this with any level of regret over something in your life, sit with it and know that regret is just loss wrapped up in a lousy emotion that holds you back. We can regret what we have said, done, or even not said and done. Events can go over and over in our minds, twisting us in knots, yet they offer little in the way of healing. Now is not the time to run from your feelings, but rather to understand them so you can move on.
