My first observation about this reading is that five out of seven of the selected cards belong to the Major Arcana. This indicates that you are going through an important phase with plenty of powerful energies, which should make you think responsibly and seriously about your life and your future decisions. 

More analytically, Five of Cups in the first position reveals that you have been suffering for quite a long time. A sentimental loss has cost you very much and you can't seem to get over it. You have isolated yourself and you have devoted your energy to mourning. With all the respect to your grief and sorrow, I advise you to take a long and careful look at the man of this card: wearing a long, black cloak, he's crying over what has been spilt but overlooks what is still standing. You need to acknowledge and cherish what you still have in your life, no matter how severe the blow was. Not everything is lost. Allow time to be your doctor and try to focus on presence, rather than absence.

The Death card reversed in the second position, which reveals important factors in your relationships, it is obvious that your torture is prolonged simply because you refuse to accept the end of things. You may have realized that a relationship that used to be important for you is headed towards its natural end but you'd rather close your eyes to this truth instead of taking the necessary action to break free. You're afraid of the pain, so you allow yourself to sink in even greater pain. You know there is no point in fixing yourself to semi-dead situations that cannot be revived. Try to find the courage to accept the truth. 

The Emperor in your Finances indicates that you have a powerful friend or ally (boss / chief / man in charge) who can be of considerable help. What is more, this card favors law, order and method. If you want to achieve more in matters of money, you need to have strong will and a solid sense of justice. The odds are on your side!

In the fourth position that stands for your career, the King of Pentacles represents a successful businessman, who is on your side. He's a reliable partner or boss but he's a bit slow to adapting to change and novelty. In general, the appearance of this King brings positive changes in your career. His advice is to stick to realism, practicality and safety in investments and moves. 

The Temperance in the Health position is an excellent card to find! If you or a member of your family is facing a health problem, you must follow your doctor's advice and you will pretty soon enjoy balance, healing and good health. The Temperance also reminds you to take care of all sides of your existence: your spiritual and psychological health and calmness is as important as your physical one. Don't disturb the balance. 

The Fool in the sixth position which represents traveling and important meetings indicates that you may go on a spontaneous trip you'll greatly enjoy. Accept invitations and challenges and allow some joy in your life. This card could also indicate that you will soon meet an exciting person who will sweep you off your feet! Keep your door open!

The Magician who appeared in the seventh, advisory position urges you to use your talents creatively. You need to find your self-confidence again in order to charm people. If you manage cultivate your knowledge and skills, focus on your goals and use your energy positively and smartly, success is on the way!
