Five of Cups and Three of Cups

The Five of Cups is the card of loss, regrets and disappointments. Often it appears when we go to war with life, when we refuse to accept that things sometimes don't go the way we want them to go. The 3 of Cups is often associated with groups of women, friends and like-minded people and it represents people we love and people who love us.
