The Four of Cups ~ Finding Inner Peace
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Four of Cups, representing: Reflection, inner-communion, tenderness and emotional fullness. This card carries a strong lunar influence. Just as the moon has her cycles, just as our emotional tides have their ebb and flow, the Four of Cups represents an inward cycle, a time of drawing within to reflect on your emotional journey.
The Four of Cups indicates that you have much to consider around your relationships and expressions of love. Often with this card there is a feeling of disappointment. Even though you have four full cups, it may not seem enough, and, there is something lacking in your emotional life. The Four of Cups encourages you to take a “time-out”, to examine your heart and whether you are receiving the quality of love you truly desire. In the process it is important to be gentle and tender with yourself. Your message to others is: Tread lightly now.
At the same time, it is important not to get lost in your reflections! The shadow side of the Four of Cups is moodiness, boredom and even, depression. The goal is to not to become stuck in your emotions. Instead, to review and process them so you are freed from the past and old baggage. For now, embrace the luxury of having time to commune with your deepest self. This is rich territory, and with the right attitude will bring you peace of mind and heart.
Ultimately, the Four of Cups offers a soothing and softening of your heart. As you embrace your emotional truth, and let go of further expectation, you will find yourself ready to receive anew!
Wishing you an emotionally rejuvenating week!
