Seven of Cups

Tarot Card Meanings

Keywords: illusions, being lost in fantasies, discernment

Seven of Cups challenges you to know truth from illusion and to make a wise choice. The dreamy and nostalgic energy of the Six of Cups that came previously has grown into clouded judgment, illusions and rose coloured glasses. Right now we are immersed in our fantasies so much that we start mistaking them for reality. It's hard to discern what is true from what we wish to be true.

Dreams can be beautiful and seductive, but they can also spiral out of control. We can use them to imagine something good and beautiful for our lives...as long as we stay grounded and keep in mind what we know for certain - versus what we think we know, assume, hope for or fear.

When this card comes up, you probably have some unrealistic perceptions and expectations. See where you've built up illusions and delusions. When it comes time to make a decision, think carefully and base it on facts.
