The Four of Cups appears when we are feeling bored and disillusioned with life. Others may perceive our situation as being full of abundance and blessings, but we just can’t see it. The rat doesn’t realise that it is sitting on top of cups filled to overflowing with all good things, such as love, emotional support and abundance. This card can also signify that the things we are searching for in our life are actually right under our nose, but we just don’t notice them….maybe because we have preconceived ideas about how these things should look. The message here is to remain open minded and not to dismiss anything out of hand.
This week a sudden happening may come like a bolt out of the blue, and jolt your world into a new paradigm. These kind of events, which come from left field, are often unsettling and disorientating, however they invariably make way for more fulfilling conditions to enter our lives. Sometimes the only way for big changes to occur is by razing the present structures to the ground, and building something stronger, more stable and enduring in it’s place. Ultimately, whatever happens this week will prove to be for the best.
This week take some time out to just ‘be’. Sometimes we forget we are human beings, and act more like human ‘doings’ as we rush around trying to cross things off our ever increasing to do list. So today try and make life a little easier on yourself…..scratch anything that isn’t strictly necessary, and give yourself five minutes out of your busy day to close your eyes, breathe deeply, and get in touch with your inner voice. It may be that taking a brief timeout may inspire you with fresh insight or new creative ideas which will help make the rest of your week more productive.
