However, take care not to not rush into it. You will gain better karma if you are considerate and attentive to your inner voice.

The Magician interpretation

You have the power to achieve what you desire. Do not hesitate. Go after what you want.

You need to start by ignoring what is and think about what could be. Acknowledge the present circumstance and then be ready to move forward.

Make sure that your intentions are clear so that you are focused on what you want. Don’t be wishy-washy about it, as that will only confuse matters and make it harder to work toward the goal. Visualize what you want and make all of your actions intentional.

Everything that you do from this point forward should be moving you closer to your goal. If you encounter obstacles, challenge them and get past them. Do not let barriers discourage you. Being able to overcome them shows your strength and adversity.

Time is never guaranteed, so it is important to move toward what you want without delay. Do not overwhelm yourself by trying to do too many things at once. Make a plan to reach your goal and carry it out over time until you have experienced the success you deserve.

Five of Cups interpretation

Things may not have turned out as you expected, but not everything in life will be easy. You may be sad and disappointed by the outcome so take time to assess your feelings and then decide how to best move forward.

Everything happens for a reason. If you are disappointed by the outcome, revisit the situation, and see how it can be changed. If it can’t be changed, move on.

It is easy to feel that your self-worth is not as high, and you may feel discouraged. Still, this disappointment will help you to clarify your expectations of yourself and your goals.

Acknowledge your feelings and make sure you understand why you have been disappointed. Make sure that you have set reasonable expectations for yourself. Learn from the experience so that you can try to avoid future disappointments.

Work through your disappointment so that you can set new goals and work towards achieving them. The past is the past. Move forward.
