Detailed meaning of the latch tea leaf symbol

Top of teacup: A latch at the top of the teacup is an indication that problems are already here and you need to do what you have to in order to put them under control. Don’t give up because that is not a solution. If it is problems with your career, work it out with your employer or colleagues to get a solution for what you are facing. If it is problems to do with finances, approach your financial advisor to get a way forward. If it is marital problems, why not visit a marriage advisor or married friends and try to share out your problems as they may just have the solution which you need right now.

Middle of cup: if the latch is in the middle of the tea cup, you still have some time to prevent the problems from hitting you hard. It is just on the horizon, and you can feel happiness in life. There is no problem without a solution; so preventing what you are seeing is easy; if there is a looming problem at work - get talking to your boss or your colleagues and discuss it before it is out of control.

If you are not on good terms with your spouse, why not sit them down and have a face to face talk, in order to prevent marital problems destroying your marriage.

If you are having problems with finances, why not re-budget so that you are operating within your budget. The key to opening the latch lies with you, and you should do everything humanly possible to work the problems out before they fall out of hand.

Bottom of teacup: a latch at the bottom of your teacup means that you are enjoying life to the maximum and the word "problems" is not in your vocabulary. Problems are unheard of, and you are enjoying every bit of your life at work, in your home and finances too.

The godly thing you can do is to make sure that you help the needy in society so that you have positive karma.

Scattered in the cup: scattered latches in the tea cup are an indication that your life is full of problems; marital, career and even financial problems. This is due to the way you mismanage everything in life. You are supposed to have focus and return your life back to normalcy.


Problems only come to those who welcome them. If you don’t do what is right in your life, then you are calling for more problems in life. Re-examine your life and make sure that you are right with God and your neighbors.
