A cup is something that you put things in and it gives you endless possibilities of a place to put different things into. Also this is where the optimism/pessimism classic comes from, is the cup half empty or half full? Everyone is familiar with this trope by now. If you dream of the other kind of cup, the symbolism comes mostly in whether you win or you lose or if you are even participating at all. What does it mean to either of you when you have dreams about either kind of cup? This will all be discussed here.
If you have a dream that involves a cup, the kind of cup that you fill things with or that you put water in or something like that then this means that you’re going to have to do a little bit more work to remember what exactly was in the cup or what the cup itself looked like. If your cup is full of good things then it means that you are in for good fortune in the future. Likewise, if it only has a few good things in it in the bottom of the cup or if it is full of bad stuff then this means that you aren’t in for much good in the future. In fact in some cases it might even mean that you’re going to have some bad fortune soon. Try not to let it get to you too much.
If you have a dream in which you are participating in a cup and you lose it means that you win some, you lose some, but you need to keep your mind focused on the big prize. Even if you lose a cup, there are generally 3 or 4 different cups in a tournament and you can still take the grand prize even if you lose the cup. You will need to remember that when it comes to coming to terms with loss in the future.
If you have a dream that you are in a competition and you win a cup then this means that you need to not be headstrong at this point in your life. Something has probably gone right for you and you can definitely take the time to celebrate when it feels right to do so, but you need to remember that you haven’t won the whole thing yet. If you have a dream in which you are watching a cup taking place it means that you see life as a competition that you aren’t going to take part in. You are not interested in all of the drama and instead you choose to take your own path.
