Summation of Spread

The Five of Cups can represent depression. The figure’s black cloak suggests sadness, distrust, and gloomy thoughts. The overturned cups are the perception of what is lost. The background bridge is a symbol of hope, passage, and the distinct possibility of moving forward.

Does life feel hopeless? The Depression Spread takes a look at issues when feeling blue or down in the dumps. If you are ever unable to salvage yourself from depression, set the cards aside and seek professional help immediately.
