In love, the 7 of Cups indicates an intense and passionate connection. Unless substance and commitment develop, the relationship will wane and fade out.
In the 7 of Cup we see a black figure with their back to the viewer. One hand reaches out and away from their body. In front of the figure are clouds with seven Cups resting on them. Each Cup contains an item. The items are a castle, jewels, a laurel wreath, a dragon, a human head, a white figure with their head covered with a white cloth, and a snake.

TarotCraft Upright Meaning
The black figure with their back to the viewer indicates activity in the sub/unconscious rather than in the conscious mind. You may not know what you want or could be feeling overwhelmed by choices. There are opportunities, but they may have little substance. Everything here is ephemeral; there is nothing permanent.
In love, this card can indicate an intense and passionate connection. Unless substance and commitment develop, the relationship will wane and fade out.
TarotCraft Reversed Meaning
When reversed or negatively aspected, you may be suffering from wishful thinking and self-indulgence. Depending on surrounding cards, addiction can also be indicated.
Concerning a love interest, jealousy and possessiveness are indicated. This isn’t true love; it’s fear-based control.
