Three of Cups (Reversed) – General meaning

Like many reverse cards, the three of cups loses quite a bit of its positive meaning.

Perhaps the most worrying or most frightening thing about this card is that it usually represents third parties involved , whether in a love relationship, within a family or in a business relationship.

The card indicates the existence of a discordant third person. This can mean various things, from infidelity to your partner or partner being involved in other things that you are unaware of.

It is a card that shows dishonesty and the rest of the cards must be taken into account for an effective panorama, such as the five or seven of spades, the devil or the moon.

As it is a card of celebrations, at some point it can indicate hedonistic behaviors aimed at pleasure, instant gratification, whether material or sensual . The celebration in this case has crossed the line and is generating behaviors and behaviors that in the long run will only be harmful.
