Cup Cards in Career Readings

The Cup cards Tarot Readings equal water in the Tarot. If you have a lot of Cups in your career reading, that’s a sign that you’re emotionally invested in your career, your professional relationships are really important to you, and that as both a person and a professional.  For some people, Cups cards in a reading might signal that either you or a close business colleague is a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces).
