Seven of Wands tarot card

Card 1 - Seven of Wands

The Seven of Wands has an image of a man who is standing on a tall hill and being challenged by the opponents below. He seems to be defending this position and attacking in retaliation. It is interesting to note that in the Rider-Waite depiction of the Seven of Wands, the man is wearing not matching shoes. This is linked to the symbolism of being on uneven ground or not having a stable footing in life.

Five of Cups tarot card

Card 2 - Five of Cups

There are certain Tarot cards whose imagery immediately conjure up negative emotions, and the Five of Cups carries such weight. This is a card which signifies loss as well as the painful challenges which stem from that particular loss. The card depicts a figure that is wearing a black cloak. The person hides his face in what seems to be despair. There are five cups on the ground, three of which have fallen while the other two remain standing. The person, however, seem to notice that there are two standing cups as is too busy mourning over those which are fallen. There is a powerful river which flows between him and a house or a castle in the distance, indicating that a torrent of emotions have separated him from home.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
Three of Swords (upheaval and upset) Ten of Swords (disappointing ending) Eight of Cups (disillusion) Nine of Swords (worry)

Opposing or contradictory cards:
The Sun (happiness) Three of Cups (joyful) Ten of Cups (emotional contentment)

Five of Cups combinations
As with all the fives, it takes us to the midway point, like a set of scales that can tip either way, so they often have a temporary nature. As always, other factors would need to be considered concerning the position in the spread, for instance, it may not bode well as a final outcome card to a question. In a simple line or three-card spread the Five of Cups is most insightful if it falls in the central position, as the first card shows where the problem stems from and the last card as to how matters progress.
