Coffee Cup Reading ~ What does it all mean?

Click on the shuffle button and click the arrow to get your coffee cup reading


TURTLE ~ A turtle in your coffee cup can be a reminder that slow and steady wins the race. You might find yourself more resilient and determined than usual. You most likely will find much-needed peace and tranquility. Turtle is a symbol of living your purpose on Earth in a serene way, even when others might be far from peaceful. You are learning not to let other people’s attitude steal away your peace of mind.


A distinctive shape in your coffee or teacup, even your hot chocolate cup, is in my opinion messages from your higher self. You might also receive a message from a lost loved one this way.

When giving yourself a coffee cup reading, make it simple. What association do you have with the symbols? Coffee cup readings are very subjective.

I always have a look inside the coffee cup after finishing a drink. This year, I photographed some of the images I saw inside my coffee cup. :)

If you see a Bell, it can be a message that your consciousness has started to raise its vibration and you will have a stronger connection to Divinity.

A hazelnut in your coffee cup is a wonderful sign that your life situation will soon improve. The Hazelnut brings symbolism from the hazel tree which denotes wisdom and inspiration. The tree takes 4 years to bring nuts in 2-7 years old, so when a hazelnut shows up in your cup it can mean you are now seeing the full picture of a situation in your life that began several years ago. Something could have caused you a lot of pain that is now a source of inspiration and wisdom in your life.

A sack of gold in your coffee cup can mean you will have a big financial reward in your life. It can also mean your investments will grow and you will have more money in your life. A sack of gold is also mean to find out what ‘real wealth’ means to you. What in your life is truly valuable? This is beyond material things and has nothing to do with money. Knowing what is truly valuable in your life will help with bringing wonderful non-resistant energy to money which often results in more abundance.

A mean old man/woman in your coffee cup can denote an old enemy or adversary is showing up in your life again.

This is someone who could pretend to be your friend, but you might not know this person very well.
