Detailed meaning of the jaw tea leaf symbol

Top of teacup: when the jaw is seen at the top of the teacup, it means that you have completely lost grip of something dear to you and you are engulfed in fear. It might be a job whereby a promotion which you desired has been given to someone else instead of you, and you are feeling unmotivated.

After working hard for several years, you think that you deserve the promotion more than anyone else. It might be a relationship you have nurtured for quite a while, and now, your partner is walking out of it; just like that, leaving you stranded and you are left wondering where to start.

It could be a hobby which you have cherished so much, which has given you an identity, but now it no longer does due to uncontrollable circumstances.

Middle of cup: when the jaw is seen in the middle of the cup, it means that you are struggling with an identity which you think is about to be stripped from you. This could be happening due to your stubbornness at your place of work, in your relationship or in life generally.

Your stubbornness at your place of work could have turned the tables against you and that promotion you anticipated, is now about to be given to someone else; in your relationship, stubbornness could have made it impossible to sort out your problems, and now the relationship is on the edge of disintegrating.

You can do something about this, by changing your stubbornness and comply with your boss and try to make extra effort at work. In the case of a relationship, start being loving to your partner and it could just revitalize the otherwise dead relationship.

Bottom of teacup: when the jaw is seen at the bottom of the teacup, it means that your life has no struggles or worries; you are at peace in all your undertakings; your job, your relationship, and even your finances are just fine. To maintain the status quo, you need to cultivate it and be compliant with everything that needs to be complied with as pertaining to every area of your life.

Scattered in the cup: scattered jaws in your teacup are an indication that, at times you get a hold of your life and things run smoothly for you; other times you hold onto things, yet they slip through your grip. Your life is full of ups and downs, and it is high time you stopped being stubborn, and the message is: make sure that you comply what is required in order to have a smooth life !


Even if you hold onto things in life, so long as you are stubborn and you don’t comply, nothing will work for your own good. Change your lifestyle and everything will be fine with you.
