A Walk Through the Thoth Tarot
Five of Cups
Yuck. The heavy skies and wavy water from the four has just turned nasty now. The formula for this card, at first glance, seems to be a happy one. Mars in Scorpio is very glad to be there and this card sits in Geburah, home of Mars. But, Mars is too too happy to be here - and gets a wee to excited, freaking Scorpio out. Instead of a slow, getting to know you relationship, it's all over in a blast.
Disappointment in love, loss of friendship - loss in those things from which pleasure is expected. We thought we had one thing but come to find we have another. This might hurt a bit but it is better to learn it now instead of fooling ourselves. Let's also look at our expectations - usually these can be set too high and we end up disappointed when nothing works the way we wanted it to work.
That isn't to say we shouldn't have expectations - it's more that we need to stay grounded in reality and hope that things will work out for the best.
