Tarot: 7 of Cups {How To Keep Your Dreams Realistic}

Tarot 7 of Cups, How To Keep Your Dreams Realistic, intuitivefish.com

Fantasy, Promises Lacking Substance, Changing Variables

The thing about dreams and even soul passions is that they aren’t concrete; therefore, they’re subject to changing variables – more than physical matter. But even then, we live in a  world of impermanence.

So dreams can’t be counted on, no matter how much we plan, conceive and think about them. But the advantage is that dreams can be well-thought out before they play out in reality.

This means you can take your time to ensure a certain intention is aligned with your life path and mission. But even then, be careful not to become too dependent on it – because all physical experiences change.

In that sense, it’s okay to dream. Just make sure you follow those imaginations to their very end, in a realistic manner. A certain fantasy may might not be how you’d like to invest your energy after all.

When The 7 of Cups Shows Up In A Reading

Health: You might be spending more time dreaming about a certain body image or health condition than working to achieve it.

Occupation: The dream for a certain work project likely doesn’t have enough material concreteness to get off the ground at this time.

Relationships: A certain relationship is suffering from fantasy or expectations based on fantasy. Or a short trip or a sightseeing vacation might be in the air.

Hidden Meaning: Success occurs long before an endeavor is completed. In fact, if you’re not feeling successful before you even set out to start, you might be on the wrong track.

Reversed: Reversed, the 7 of Cups suggests there’s a solid chance for attainment because a particular objective, especially as it concerns a project, has moved or is ready to move beyond the conceptual stage of development. But you might be confused as to what you really want. Or maybe unrealistic fantasies and temptations are diverting your attention and therefore, blocking your achievement. Perhaps you’re caught up in instant gratification that will never genuinely fulfill you, but they keep you trapped in wanting more. Face your honest feelings, and get clear on your desired outcome so that the universe can fulfill your intention. Spend time in premeditation reflecting on your true wishes and desires; set these aspirations as your will and resolution.

Advice: Conditions might appear promising. But unless the 7 of Cups is reversed, there’s more fantasy than substance here. You can expect unstable conditions or changes to occur – no matter how much you contemplate a situation, or how many opinions support it, or how many deliberate intentions you set. Also, be careful about depending too much on guides, spirit guardians or nature spirits. Sometimes they mislead. You’ll encounter more success if you accept conditions as they are, and make your dreams more realistic and attainable.
