Detailed meaning of the lock tea leaf symbol

Top of teacup: a lock at the top of the teacup is an indication that you are on the verge of breaking down because you have been unable to succeed.

You are giving in to fate and telling yourself that you will not succeed in life. You are considering delaying the potential in your life.

Why not try to reverse yourself and face your fate head on and get things completed. Emulate those who are succeeding; ask them their secret to success and try to copy them where necessary.

If it is a relationship which is not doing quite okay, you should try and check out what is wrong, talk to your partner and try to look for a solution to your differences.

In case it is your business, look for ways to improve it through getting more clients by advertising. At your place of work, try to be more social. Help your colleagues also.

Middle of cup: a lock in the middle of the teacup is an indication that you are struggling in life. You try a business; it doesn't seem to do well; your marriage is not going well; your relationship with people at your place of work is not pleasing. You have to put in more effort in life, to see if you can avoid falling into the ditch of failure.

Thus, you can avoid this, by making sure that, whatever you do you double your effort and it will definitely pay off. Many have overcome challenges in life after seeing a lock in this position, and you won't be an exception.

Bottom of teacup: a lock at the bottom of the teacup is an indication that you are a successful person and there is nothing that will get in the way of being successful. You have overcome so many obstacles to be on the top of your career, and you have to continue working hard so that, you remain at the top.

While you are there, make sure that you help those who are not successful so that they can find a stepping stone to climb to the top. Don't be mean, lest you also end up losing everything you have worked for.

Scattered in the cup: Scattered locks in the teacup are an indication that, you have what it takes to be successful, but you are not reaching your maximum potential as you are full of doubts and you don't believe in yourself. You have to work on your inner self because that is the root cause of the failures in your life. It is very easy to get moving if you just concentrate on doing what is right; avoiding bad influences and making sure that you are determined.


Successful people believe in themselves while unsuccessful ones are full of unbelief in their ability to succeed. So the difference between successful people and unsuccessful ones is their perspective on life; successful people see an opportunity in every problem while unsuccessful ones since problems in every opportunity; be the former. Nothing comes easy in life, and that should be your reminder all the time.
