Four of Cups Tarot Card Meanings
The image in the Gilded Tarot shows a well-dressed youth surrounded by lush countryside with three golden upright cups by his side. From outward appearances he appears to be in a good position yet seems disinterested in the fourth cup being offered to him from the heavens.
The Four of Cups is like the Monday morning feeling, nothing’s really wrong but nothing feels right either, like walking around under a little grey cloud. The stability found in the four becomes stale and sluggish in Cups.
This card can indicate boredom and discontent, generally feeling weary, fed-up, or disinterested in events going on around you. The Four of Cups reveals a mood of dissatisfaction but it can also be a warning not to look a proverbial gift horse in the mouth, so be careful you don’t dismiss something out of hand and miss a golden opportunity due to indifference. The Four of Cups may leave you feeling uninspired!
If reversed or ill-dignified - it may bring a break in the clouds, exploring new opportunities, renewed sense of energy and interest.
