When pulled upright this card is about feeling disappointed that a certain situation didn’t turn out the way you hoped it would. Instead of moving on this card is saying that you’re really dwelling on what you wanted to happen and this is making you feel a lot of self pity and regret. This card may also be saying that you missed an opportunity. This problem is most likely emotional rather than a material or financial problem. This card is saying you have a hard time letting go of the past and that you are unwilling to learn from the mistakes that you made previously. Since you are so caught up in the past you are likely going to miss opportunities in your present and future.
When pulled in reverse this card is about accepting and moving on from your past. You have come to understand and appreciate the lesson this experience has taught you. You may also be realizing what this experience did for you in the grand scheme of things. The suffering that it caused you has now made you a stronger and more resilient person. You are now ready to move on with the rest of your life.
Here is a tarot spread to help you move on when you get stuck in the past. First I would take out the five of cups and meditate on it while thinking about what it is you are stuck on. Then shuffle and pull your cards using your preferred method.
