Seven of Cups Tarot Card: Upright, Reversed, & Love Meanings

Seven of Cups Card Meaning

The Seven of Cups in Tarot stands for wishful thinking, options, impracticality, sloppiness, and dissipation. The Seven of Cups meaning in a Tarot reading is that it's time to make a decision and be realistic about what you can do and how far you can extend yourself. The Seven of Cups provides balance to the efficiency, neatness, time management, and all things controlled and in order. Those things have their place, but sometimes you need to let go.

Upright Seven of Cups Card Meaning

When the Seven of Cups is upright in a Tarot reading, it means that it's time to assess the orderliness in your life. If there is too much rigidity, maybe you need to loosen up. You may find that letting go of control releases a wave of creativity in you. If, however, you're already in a chaotic situation, this card could be a warning that you need to get things under control. The Seven of Cups doesn't mean overindulgence. It's about finding that balance between order and disorder.

Reversed Seven of Cups Card Meaning

When the Seven of Cups is reversed in a Tarot reading, it's a wake-up call. Maybe you're finally finding clarity after living in a dream world for too long. It means you're ready to make up your mind and act with decisiveness. It can also mean you're feeling trapped or that you are running out of options in a situation.

Seven of Cups Card Love Meaning

The Seven of Cups in a Tarot love reading is about being presented with options. If you're single, it means you may have a lot of people showing romantic interest in you. A new romance (or romances) may blossom soon. If you're in a relationship, this card may represent indecisiveness or an inability to commit to your partner. You have to remember that even in the best relationships, the initial honeymoon phase can't last forever. Come back down to reality and put in the work that all relationships require.
