7 of Cups (Cross Spread)

7 of Cups

The Seven of Cups suggests that these images in your mind must also be dealt with in reality. Be aware of illusions in choices you are currently facing. If you constantly get caught up in your own fears and dreams, you will never be able to move forth and overcome those fears or make those dreams come true.
Thus, this card indicates that even though dreaming is inspirational and beautiful, at some point you have to start building your real life. And although the numerous options to be chosen might paralyze you, you must make a choice. It is advisable to carefully consider the pros and cons of each option. Make your decision with caution as all is not what it seems to be.
The Seven of Cups is additionally a wish card. Each of the cups is filled with wishes such as wealth, beauty, success, and a nice home. However, not every cup is implies a positive result. Some cups hold a snake or a demon and thus the Seven of Cups can be a mixed blessing. Be careful with what you wish for.
The Seven of Cups is associated with temptation. With so many choices presented to you, it is easy to be tempted to go for that cup containing the snake. Since this card is from the suit of Cups, the temptation is likely to be of an emotional or sexual nature – the one-night stand, and all those other things that seem innocent at the time they are undertaken. But in most of cases, the pleasure gained temporarily is far outweighed by the consequences that last, in most cases, for an entire lifetime.
