4 of Cups
A young man looks at the cups he has and is being offered a new one, yet none satisfy him. I find this to be a powerful Minor Arcana card. This generally represents dissatisfaction with the status quo; the querent wants somwthing more in life, but doesn't quite know what it is.
Reversed:
Contented to stay with what you know even if it means being bored; missing out on something in life in order to remain safe.
 Back

5 of Cups
This is another powerful Minor Arcana card. The person in the picture is mourning the loss of the three spilled cups in front of them, but there are still two full cups remaining. This signifies a bad loss, but there is still something to salvage from the situation.
Reversed:
Not seeing that there is still something to gain from the loss one has recently experienced.
 Back

6 of Cups
Children in a garden playing. This signifies relationships from your childhood or distant past that are affecting the present.
Reversed:
Ignoring what the past can teach you; there is something from the past that is coming up that the querent isn't seeing.
 Back

7 of Cups
A person looking at the cups in a vision. Represents having grand ideas for something; having big plans.
Reversed:
Having big dreams but not acting on them. Being all talk and no action.
 Back

8 of Cups
A person walking away from many filled cups. Could mean searching for more meaning out of the current situation; realising that the material isn't important.
Reversed:
Clinging to something that really has no meaning; putting too much attachment on the material.
 Back

9 of Cups
A man sitting in front of a table full of cups. Represents being proud of your accomplishents; showing off what you've gained.
Reversed:
Hording that which is only symbolic; being miserly with your emotions and not giving much.
 Back

10 of Cups
A happy family under a rainbow with ten cups above. Represents happiness and tranquility; stability in a relationship.
Reversed:
Instabilites in a relationship; not feeling secure enough.
