Trust in the timing of everything. Look to astrology (Sun/Moon) to see what cycle we are in. Trust in the journey. The cups are displayed in a way that makes it appear as if one is missing. This is designed to represent something that is missing or a feeling of disappointment. In tarot water represents emotions and mountains are often seen as something we need to climb to reach the top.
