Seven of Cups: general, standing and reversed meaning

Seven of Cups, general description

Seven of CupsĀ is the 55th card of the Major Arcana. It is part of Fatecaster’s Tarot card list that summarizes the Rider Waite Tarot cards’ meaning.

Seven of Cups is the card of deception, illusion, mirage and half-light. It shows that we have false hopes and concepts; we betray ourselves and let ourselves be deceived. It’s usually the forerunner of disappointment, and it expressive advises to beware of daydreaming.

The card, however, has a joyful relation as well: it promises unexpected help if we can get away from the fiction of our desires and hopes and concentrate on one realistic plan.

Seven of Cups (deceit), standing

Daydreaming and obscure planning. Wasting energies in order to accomplish intensive desires and unreal goals. Chasing illusions and wasting energies because of bad choices. Rapture, delirium and hallucinations that kill ambitions. They only show the discovery of transcendental truth in rare and special situations.


Seven of Cups (deceit), reversed

Dreams and fantasies that can come true. A decision made by taking into consideration more alternatives. Inner purity that puts an end to illusions and the possibility of bad decisions. Keeping in touch with reality amidst rapture, hallucinations and delirium. Rarely and only in special situations it can mean wasting the chance to discover the transcendental truth.
