Four of Cups Meaning
Trivial Loss • Self-absorbed • Daze
The Four of Cups is a card of dissatisfaction because at its heart, this card is a contradiction. The suit of cups is about water, movement, and flow. The stability of the number 4 runs contrary to this theme. This card may represent apathy and boredom in you. It may also signify that you are not appreciating what life is offering.
Maybe you have experienced a loss in the recent past. The Four of Cups appears in a reading as a warning that you are being self-absorbed, caught up in your world where the cards are always stacked against you yet you are unwilling to move or change the situation. This card says, “Wake up!” Say thanks for what you do have before it is lost.
