When reversed, the Five of Cups suggests that you’ve recently undergone a situation that set you back in ways you hardly expected. You are disappointed, worried about how others may react, and you may even be locked in a state of denial, refusing to acknowledge the mistakes that brought you to this point. You’ve realized just how impactful these past choices can be, but this position is a reminder that it’s time to forgive yourself for them. The past is fixed in stone. You can’t change things by regretting them for the rest of your life. Learn from your mistakes and allow yourself to move past the guilt with new perspectives to guide you into the future.
