It’s the 3rd week of the year and the card of the week is the 5 of cups. Three is a number of things coming together and the 5 of Cups is a card of despair. But the despair depicted in the 5 of Cups is a kind of despair that comes from being spoiled and ungrateful. So although it may seem that things are falling apart, if we pay attention to what we do have instead of what we don’t have, we’ll see that things are actually coming together.
