What Does the 7 of Cups Mean?

Choosing choices, or be paralysed by choice. There is a paradox to the 7 of Cups. When all is on offer, how do you choose? What do you choose? Will you choose, or will you walk away empty handed? Only you can decide.

7 of Cups as a Daily Tarot Oracle Card

Oracle Message: Step back from everything today & see with your eyes.


We could equally call today’s Tarocope, Distractions, as this is how you will likely feel faced with so many choices and options, such is the nature of the 7 of Cups. There is a strong feeling of not finishing your tasks today simply because you took on too much. There is a co-dependent feel to this and a ‘people pleasing’ element to it also. Well I have some news for you:

You can’t please all the people all the time.

And neither should you. While you seemingly cannot choose wisely for yourself today, letting others choose for you will leave you frustrated and annoyed with yourself. It’s like a merry-go-round you can’t get off, but you can. You can choose not to get on in the first place, you’ll just find it hard to resist the offers and temptations of the day and therein lies your dilemma…

The grass isn’t always greener on the other side and once you’ve abandoned one thing for another, you’ll not be satisfied with either. Don’t say yes to someone when you really want to say no. Choose what you will do today, choose what you won’t and be good to yourself. If they’re offended, that’s their issue and not yours. Asserting yourself isn’t always easy but it’s your right and it’s also a choice.
