CUP



Spiritual Meaning:
The feminine awareness of the draught of life, immortality and plenty is intuitively and sensitively used. The cup has much of the symbolism of the chalice, indicating a receptive state which accepts intuitive information.

Psychological / Emotional Perspective:
If we are open to the more feminine side, we are able to both give and receive help and assistance. The cup often signifies happiness or joy.

Everyday Material Aspects:
An offering or opportunity is being offered in everyday matters which we would do well to identify. Often the feminine is offering an opportunity from the unconscious.

Gender / Specific Meanings:
To some extent the interpretation depends on what kind of cup is depicted. An ordinary teacup or mug for instance focuses on mundane matters and – for a woman – her feelings about domestic concerns. In a man’s dream the emphasis is more likely to be on his feelings about his wife, family and happiness.
