Seven of Cups Tarot Card Meaning
Illusion • Choice Paralysis • Fantasy
The Seven of Cups is the daydream card. It appears when you feel you have many options, so many wonderful ones to choose from, it’s difficult to make a decision. But this card warns that this feeling is an illusion—your flights of fancy about each option are running wild, preventing you from making a real decision.
Sometimes the Seven of Cups is a card asking you to be more organized with your life moving forward. Though it seems boring compared to living in a dreamland, sometimes you just have to put the hours in to get to your goal.
The message of this card is not to let your emotions carry you away into fantasies and daydreams. It’s easy to wish for something. Everyone does it. Get ahead by making sure you are backing up your plans with work and effort.
Seven of Cups Reversed
Reflection • Distraction • Hastiness
When’s the last time checked in on yourself? The Seven of Cups reversed can suggest distraction, active diversions that take up your time, but don’t ultimately go anywhere. While the upright Seven of Cups is about staying in one’s head too long, the Seven of Cups appears reversed when activity is nearly frantic and done without deep thought. If you feel yourself rushed, take some time to slow down and quietly reflect.
