Seeing a cup in a dream is indicative of financial success. In order to advance in your current position or to land a better one in the future, you may have decided to expand your skill set in the coming time frame. There will always be times when you don't feel like studying or putting in equivalent effort, but you'll also remember that doing so will lead to a brighter future.
The dream interpretation of receiving a cup from another person suggests that you have a healthy competitive spirit. For you, winning is the only thing that matters, so there's no point in even trying if you know you have no chance of success. You put forth a sincere attempt to succeed and to coax the best from those around you, and as a result, many people shy away from working with you because of the stress that you inevitably bring to the group.
If you see yourself handing over a chalice in a dream, it's a sign that you'll cave in to pressure when the time comes. There's probably nothing left in you to fight for your work or your family, so you're going to leave it all to the person you think of as your heir. You'll refrain from intervening in their choice-making process and instead respond only if they specifically ask for your assistance.
A dream in which you misplace a cup suggests that you are careless with the possessions you do have. You're the type of person whose possessions can all fit into a single bag; you don't like to hoard things that don't have any meaning to you personally. When you're feeling down, the only thing that will cheer you up is remembering the wonderful things that have happened to you.
To dream that someone steals your cup is a portent of impending mistreatment. It's possible that someone will try to usurp your position by underhanded means. You'll know that a level playing field is unlikely, so you'll rely on your earned respect and reputation instead.
You have a high opinion of yourself if you dream that you have a sizable collection of goblets or mugs. You are certain that you are superior to the people around you in every way imaginable. It's great that you're feeling so confident, but remember that arrogance is a risky quality for anyone to have, including the one who owns it.
When you dream about a golden cup, it represents your aspirations. When it comes to your career and your personal life, you are a person who courageously battles for what they desire. There is also the option to be extremely cruel and leave no bridges unburned. It may seem right at the time, but you may come to regret your choices when you find you have no one to share your accomplishments with.
To dream of a silver chalice portends a bright and carefree future. Sometimes you may worry that your life won't turn out the way you want it to, and that you'll fall short of your hopes and dreams. But you can get what you want if you work hard at it and don't give up on yourself or your dreams.
If you see a bronze cup in your dream, it portends that your hard work will go unnoticed and unrewarded. Even if you manage to get everything done on schedule and with excellent outcomes at work, your supervisor may choose to promote someone else instead of you. It's also possible that the increase you've been anticipating will turn out to be significantly less than you were hoping for, prompting you to consider leaving your current position and finding a new one elsewhere.
One dream of dreaming about a plastic cup is that you will provide solace to another person. It's likely that you'll soon cross paths with someone you instantly click with. After a short time together, you'll see how well suited you are to one another, and you might even start fantasizing about a future together. You'll find out, though, that they were just using you as a rebound while they got over an ex they're still not quite over.
A dream in which you find a broken or damaged cup portends that your happiness over future success will be shattered. The possibility exists that you will get something really important that you've always wanted, but that won't provide you the lasting happiness you're looking for because a new challenge and battle will soon arise.
If you're dreaming about buying a cup, it's a sign that you're looking for a short route to success. You don't want to spend decades studying, working, and accumulating wisdom just so you may relax in your dotage. You want to get wealthy quickly so that you can enjoy the perks of that lifestyle while you're still young. That hope of yours may possibly come true.
If you dream that you are selling a cup, it is a warning that your efforts will prove fruitless. There was probably a time when you put in a lot of effort into a single project that ultimately failed to yield the desired results. It's also possible that your years of schooling have gone to waste since your employer doesn't place any value on your credentials and instead treats you the same as other staff members who have far less expertise than you have.
If you dream that you are stealing a cup, it's a warning that you might do something unwise because of other people. You will do something you will regret in an effort to gain someone's approval. There may not appear to be anything wrong with your conduct at the time, but you may feel embarrassed just remembering that now.
A warning to avoid being taken in by flatterers is conveyed by a dream in which your goblet is stolen. You have trusted certain persons with a close proximity to you, yet you are unaware of their genuine motives. When others are nice to you and pat you on the back, it feels wonderful because it makes you feel good about yourself. Yet, you fail to recognise the peril that lurks beneath those lyrical expressions.
A dream in which you steal someone else's cup is a symbol of your willingness to challenge established authority. Maybe there's a certain assignment your boss gives you that you'll flat-out refuse to undertake because it violates your morals. It's also possible that you don't follow parental guidance because you disagree with it. Despite your fears, you will no longer be able to keep your mouth shut and blindly carry out commands that you disagree with.
If you dream that you find a chalice that someone else hid or discarded, you will come into some unexpected money. Win at the lottery, receive an inheritance, or obtain a bonus from your employer to reward your hard work over the past quarter. That will allow you to finally treat yourself to something you've wanted for a long time and pay off some of the bills you've accumulated due to your constant lack of funds.
It's a sign that you need to be less conceited and proud if you dream of quaffing wine from a cup. Without any sense of modesty, you constantly rub your material and immaterial success in other people's faces. You're merely exposing your own frailties and vulnerabilities.
If you dream that you or someone you know is drinking wine from a chalice, it may be an indication that you are envious of the wrong person. Somehow you've come to the conclusion that your pal, coworker, or acquaintance is living the life of your dreams. However, some very unpleasant things lurk beneath the picture-perfect facade they display to the outside world. That's why it's important to focus on what you desire and not let destructive thoughts or unfair comparisons derail your progress.
If you dream that you are drinking water from a goblet, it portends that you will beat yourself up. Someone may have wronged you, prompting the need for vengeance. But you'll come to see that vengeance isn't a good motivator in life and that it won't bring you the peace of mind you seek, so you'll instead focus on other positive and lovely pursuits.
A vision of another person using a cup to drink water foretells that you will soon encounter a person whose humility will astound you. In this age of capitalism and the never-ending pursuit of material success, you will see that there are still outlying communities of people who place a premium on genuine values.
In a dream, tossing a cup aside represents giving up hope. You may come to see that your hero is not at all how you expected them to be. You have held firm to your convictions that they are the epitome of professionalism, honor, and expertise, but you may soon come to realize that you have been idolizing them.
Someone else throwing a cup away in your dream is a warning that you're about to make some decisions or do some activities that will be unpopular with the people in your immediate vicinity. Probably they will think it's wrong, but they won't tell you that to your face; instead, they'll talk trash about you behind your back. You'll be more upset by their inability to say it directly to you than by any actual criticism you receive.
