This card stands for an attitude in which sorrow, loss and mourning cannot be handled constructively anymore but are met with passivity. We stay in the ruins of the destroyed house, looking only at our misfortune and not at the lighter outlooks that could be seen if only we turned away from the ruins a bit. The Five of Cups prompt us to let go of this attitude and try to "tidy up" the ruins and then turn to happier things.
