Vessels Suit Meaning

Vessels are most associated with emotions, feelings (positive and negative), and romance. Vessels represent Water signs, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. Water signs are generally led by their emotions and rely heavily on their “feelings” surrounding a given situation. When they allow themselves to be ruled solely by emotion, however, they can appear moody and difficult for others to understand. Depending on the deck, this suit could also be called Cups, Chalices, Goblets, Cauldrons, or Hearts, to name a few.

General Meaning for the Five of Vessels

The Five of Vessels in a reading may indicate that a person is having trouble letting go of the past. This person can seem either overly emotional or disconnected from emotions entirely, because they choose to concentrate on what could be (or could have been) rather than what is.

Five of Vessels in the Past/Yesterday Meaning

In the past position, the Five of Vessels can indicate an event, situation, or loss that affected this person emotionally. It will appear in a past, present, or future reading as an indicator of what formed a person’s current beliefs or attitude based on the past. It could also show how they have let that experience hold them back from moving forward. Think about forgiving someone or letting something go that doesn’t serve your best interest.

Five of Vessels in the Present/Today Meaning

In the present position, the Five of Vessels could point to a repeat or reminder of a past situation. You are being made aware that although there may be sadness attached to this, there is also hope for change – a second chance – if the person would just choose to look forward instead of behind. Not all of the vessels are empty – indicating hope for the future with just a shift of perspective.

Five of Vessels in the Future/Tomorrow Meaning

The Five of Vessels in the future position allows us to see how we can look forward in a positive light while not forgetting the lessons or situations from the past. The past is an integral part of setting up who we are and how we interact with others in our present and future. Where there was loss, there is now room for growth. It is your choice, your free will, which decides whether you’ll brush yourself off and move on or if you’ll let the past anchor you to loss and pain.

Love and Relationship Meaning for the Five of Vessels


In a love reading the Five of Vessels may indicate that your love life, in general, is not going well. There is a sense of sadness and disappointment surrounding this subject. Either you’re not choosing relationships that truly fit your needs in love, or you may not be on the same page at the same time. If this is a repeating occurrence in love, perhaps an assessment of your expectations is in order. Do you expect too much of a relationship too soon?


If you are in a committed relationship, the Five of Vessels may suggest a temporary or permanent parting of the ways. Although it may indicate trouble, the Five of Vessels also allows for hope, reconciliation and repair; however, nothing will change without an infusion of positive energy towards romantic connections, and that starts with you. Let yourself feel forgiveness and bring healing energy into your life, and a happier future in love is sure to follow.

Career Meaning for the Five of Vessels

If the Five of Vessels shows in a career reading, make sure that you are applying for jobs that fit your resume and experience. Keep going for the right position, and it will come to you at the right time. It could also indicate that there is trouble on the horizon at work, but if you stay vigilant, the situation can be salvaged. What you make out of the wreckage may be even better than what you had before.

Financial Meaning for the Five of Vessels

Financially, the Five of Vessels may indicate a loss of money, whether it’s physical cash or loss through an investment. It is your choice to let this problem continually plague you and surround all of your future money moves, or to let it go by learning a lesson and using that knowledge to your advantage in the future. Perhaps nothing can correct the past, but you can control your financial future by moving on with confidence.
