The 4 of Cups Tarot card is all about “wishful thinking.” It arrives to warn us that we need to remember to pay attention to what “is” now, as well as the many blessings that we each currently experience. At the same time it tells us not to worry too much about “what could be.” This is important because it’s very easy to overlook what we already have in the pursuit of what we don’t have.
Whenever this card shows up in a general reading, it’s simply there to remind us to be “counting our blessings.” In other words, we shouldn’t spend too much time in self-pity or wishing our lives away. Remember that a lot of life has to do with where we place our focus and so we should place our focus on those things and people in our lives that we should be thankful for. Sometimes it helps to keep a gratitude journal for this very reason.
On the other hand, whenever the 4 of Cups Tarot card shows up in a love / relationship reading, it’s there to tell us to take a hard look at ourselves to make sure that we’re being realistic in regards to this area of our lives.
Of course, this is just one of the many things you’ll want to learn about Tarot…
