7 of cups tarot card advice main

Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” – Albert Einstein

Nothing new would ever be accomplished without someone first having a dream. Imagination is the fuel for innovation, and it is a vital component for shaping our futures into something that we desire. While it is normal to stay firmly rooted in the present and its limitations, there are times where setting your mind free will lead you to places that you otherwise may have never reached. Now is that time; what do you dream about?

What do you want to see yourself accomplish in the future? Take a moment to disregard the potential limitations, and push the word “impossible” from your mind. One you have your mind set to something, visualization will help you build the momentum that is needed to start achieving your dreams. If you have no aspirations for the future, then there is very little insight for you to utilize while pushing forward into the unknown. You may find yourself stuck in a rut, far from the final destination that you had originally imagined. To avoid this, it is vital to never let the dream die

There may be periods where it feels as though achieving your dreams will never happen. Not only will this mentality bring down your mood, resulting in a lack of satisfaction and fulfilment with your life and achievements, but it will also serve as one of the barriers that will keep you from making any progress toward your goals at all. As American minister Norman Vincent Peale said, “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”

7 of cups meaning for relationship

When you are in a romantic relationship, it is easy to linger on your dreams of what your future with this person will look like. Do you want to buy a house together? Get married? Start a family? 

Now is the time to develop those dreams and let them bleed into reality. What is stopping you from taking the next step? Have a conversation with your partner about your hopes for the future; you will be surprised to hear that they may feel the same way as you. This may also be a sign that your current relationship will last to see these dreams fulfilled

The fact that you are comfortable enough to revolve your life around this person is evidence of the fact that you trust them enough to share everything that you’ve ever wanted with them. On the other hand, if you are currently looking for a new romantic relationship, your dream partner may be just around the bed. What do they look like? What is their personality like? Where would you hope to meet them? 

Your dreams of Prince Charming may seem unrealistic, but there is somebody out there that is everything you’ve ever wanted in a partner. Keep your eyes open and avoid settling at this time; you want to keep yourself available for when your dream partner finally arrives!

7 of cups meaning for job and career
As of right now, you are not in the career that you have always dreamed of having. However, this does not mean that you aren’t on the right track to eventually getting there

Your current position may be preparing you for the challenges of your dream job, or it may be setting you up financially for the training that you will need to enter into a certain field. As tedious as it may seem now, it is a necessary step in making your dreams into a reality. It is vital, now more than ever, to keep your dream alive even in the face of monotony and slow progress. 

Remember why you work so hard, and keep your eyes firmly fixed on your perfect future. Spend your free time imagining the fulfilment that you will get from landing your dream job, as it will give you the motivation to keep moving forward. Visualize the future success that the universe has in store for you; anything is possible so long as you will it! Get creative in imagining exactly how you plan to get there; what can you do to set yourself apart from the other people in your field? Avoid dwelling on limitations and potential setbacks, as this is the time for optimism and faith in your abilities.

7 of cups reversed main meaning
Without a clear sense of direction, it can feel as though you’ve begun to work in an endless circle of redundancy and stagnation. When The 7 of Cups appears in the reversed position, it is a sign that you have neglected the creative, idealistic portion of your mind

The reality of your current situation may seem bleak, and it is easy to let it dull the sparkle of your future aspirations. However, allowing overt realism to take over your thought process results in low expectations, a lack of vision for the future, and the tendency to settle for unpleasant or unfulfilling situations. 

Take some time to get those creative juices flowing again and turn your eyes towards your future. What do you dream of accomplishing in the near future? What about a number of years down the road? Remind yourself of your aspirations and let them fill you with optimism and hope. Engage your mind with activities that stimulate the imagination, as this will help free your thoughts from the chains of pessimism and stagnation.
