Card meaning

A young person is depicted sitting under a tree, with three cups lined up in front of him, and a fourth cup being offered by a mysterious hand emerging from a cloud. The individual appears to be deep in contemplation or perhaps dissatisfaction, seemingly unaware or disinterested in the cup being offered.

The Four of Cups signifies a time of introspection, contemplation, and potential apathy. It suggests feeling unfulfilled or dissatisfied with current circumstances, even if there’s an external offer or opportunity presented. This card encourages you to re-evaluate your feelings and consider why you might be feeling stagnant or discontented. It’s a prompt to look inward and assess whether the root of your dissatisfaction comes from external circumstances or from a deeper internal searching. While introspection is vital, the Four of Cups also warns against becoming too self-absorbed or overly focused on one’s disappointments that you miss out on potential opportunities. It’s a reminder that sometimes contentment is a choice, and there might be blessings around that you’re overlooking.

Reflect on your feelings but don't become so inward-focused that you miss out on external opportunities.

An introspective individual, possibly stuck in a rut, someone who might be taking things for granted or is too focused on past disappointments to see present opportunities.
