Re-evaluation / meditation / apathy / regret / refusing offers / nostalgia
With the Four of Cups in a reading, you are going through a period of regret and missed opportunities. You are focusing on the negative, allowing yourself to absorb in apathy, and have lost your passion and motivation. This indicates that you probably feel things should stay as they are and refuse to deal with your shadows. You may lack confidence and hide from the world, which doesn’t help you see the opportunities that come your way. You might dismiss them as insignificant, but be mindful of what you’re not seeing. Saying no to everything will keep you stagnant. Take this as a time of reflection and reevaluate your situation.
The Four of Cups invites you to let go of the past and instead learn from it to heal your trauma. You have been feeling withdrawn for too long, and it’s time to break this chain connecting to what was. Take a step back and gain a new perspective; there are a lot of opportunities on offer right in front of you.
Sudden Awareness / end of stagnation / focus / enthusiasm / interest
With the Four of Cups in reverse, you are finally pulling yourself out of the dark times you’ve been dealing with. You’re no longer drowning in apathy, and things are no longer stagnant. You are moving in a positive direction, and regret is now a thing of the past. You are finally seeing the opportunities before you and taking them by storm. The world has so much to offer you, and you are here to take advantage of anything that it throws to your feet. Self-awareness makes you realize how detached you are from the world, and you no longer want to go down the path of self-pitying and absorption.
This card signifies that you must let go of patterns and people that are not good for you and attract only positivity in your life. It’s also a good time to withdraw into your world to meditate and concentrate on what is good for you. Take as much time as you need to feel refreshed and self-aware; just be cautious not to shut out your loved ones.
