Five of Cups — Spiritual Message of the Day

March 22, 2012

Five of Cups -- Tarot of the MastersWe know that when a loved one dies, grieving is a necessary step on the way toward healing. However, this is also true for things other than an actual death, such as the loss of a job or relationship. In fact, it is important that we not gloss over any sorrow, for unacknowledged or unresolved pain may bury itself deep into our hearts and take unsuspected residence there. We may think we’re through with it, but if a feeling is not through with us, it will resurface in other circumstances, which can mystify us. Why did that emotion arise in this situation, we may wonder. In addition, actions that result from echoes of sadness past will generally seem inappropriate, bewildering (or aggravating) the people around us. So when inexplicable sadness arises, which is often signaled by strange behavior, consider what past grief or sorrow may be the unseen origin.

If you enjoy these words of spiritual advice from the cards, you will love my new Tarot book called The Soul’s Journey: Finding Spiritual Messages in the Tarot.

    • Hi Sharyn,
      No, I haven’t done anything like that.
      And I just tried them in another system (where I’m not logged in as me) and both of those work there. Maybe it was a temp system glitch?

  2. I find this to be an important point – emotions have a reason. An easy one to see is worrying about something or feeling anxiety. It is often a signal to point out something requiring our attention. Healthy guilt is another, signaling our ethic-center’s displeasure with our actions, or intentions, or when tempted to turn from our ethical path. Healthy anger can be a motivating force, yet ill-placed anger damaging.

    As with interpreting the cards, these emotional upwellings are often signals. We then face the task of determining what may be an appropriate response. Upon reflection we must decide whether our emotions are healthy and appropriate, or whether we need to “turn the card upright.”

    We are physical, emotional, and spiritual beings. I wonder if in some way our emotions help form a bridge between our physical and spiritual worlds?
