Emotional loss is connected with loss, grief and anger
Emotional Loss is the card drawn today from The Psychic Tarot Oracle Deck by John Holland. It is the 5th card of the suit emotion from the Minor Arcana. This card is equivalent to the 5 of cups, in a traditional tarot spread.
The number 5 resonates with the vibration of: Personal freedom, unconventional, individualism, non-attachment, change, life lessons learned through experience, variety, adaptability and versatility, resourcefulness, motivation, progress, activity, experience, travel, sympathy and understanding, sociability, surrender, influence, sensuality, promotion, natural flair.
When you see Emotional Loss, it means you may be experiencing the loss of someone or something you were dearly attached to. You may not be interested in being coaxed away from your sorrow and indeed may get angry with those who try to, even if their heart is in the right place. You just want to be left alone to focus on your loss. Although you have experienced loss or terrible change in your life, something of value still remains.
You need to let your tears and words flow forth, even if your tears are of anger, regret or shame they must be released. Your deep sadness or loss may cause you to turn inwards in an attempt to make sense of what has happened. You may have cut yourself off from life and all you know and are familiar with.
Emotional Loss teaches you the lesson of impermanence: life never stays the same for long. Good times come and go and so do people. Irrevocable loss is often suggested by the number 5 and the sense that nothing will ever be the same again. You must learn to accept loss as part of life, trusting that once you are prepared to let go, the universe will replace your loss with something of equal worth or better.
Then again, you may be making a drama out of nothing or prolonging a drama just to get attention. Just be aware that although friends may stand by you at the moment, they will tire of this eventually and back off. Do you really want to become the victim or martyr to those around you?
This card could be related to a job loss or business collapse. Hope is not lost as something can still be salvaged out of this apparent disaster. You still have something you can build from and there are always people around you who want to help so try to let them in.
In regards to the relationship, Emotional Loss can represent the end of a relationship. The One you loved may have changed or you may never have really known them, preferring to view them through rose-tinted glasses. Rose-tinted glasses only last until you are ready to see clearly. Once your eyes are opened you will see all sorts of nasty things not viewed before.
On the other hand, you may be the one who decided to leave because you have met someone else. You may be feeling the dreadful weight of responsibility for bringing sadness to your partner and/or family.
Recovery might be slow, but in time, you may look back on this distressing situation as a blessing in disguise.
