Celtic Dragon - Five of Cups

Soaring Eagle

Description: A man is half-turned from a table with five cups, all empty, one tipped on its side, and one tipped and broken spilling it’s contents. There are five small water dragons flying around the man unnoticed. The man is about to enter the dark doorway into the unknown.

Significant Details: The dragons are astral guides and teachers. The open doorway represents the blank unknown.

My Interpretation: You may suffer a loss or a separation. This is a time of disillusionment, possibly of pain, when you dwell upon negative events or happenings. This is also a time of disappointment, regret, and self-pity. You may find yourself depressed during this time. You have neglected something of importance to you.

Thoughts/Points to Ponder: Lining up the 4(Dissatisfaction), 5(Negative Events), and 6(Pleasure), I see that we must find the pleasures of life to get over our dissatisfaction of life, which may lead to negative events entering our lives.

Often times we can come to involved in thinking back on past memories, and be drug into a depression, which allows negative energies and events to enter our lives. We must become childlike and trust in the pleasures of life to get over these unhealthy feelings.


The man seems ready to flee. He may be afraid of the consequences of the mess on the table. Maybe he doesn't want conflict, to confront the others.
