Hello?! Is anyone home? Where ARE you??? Have you even been paying attention, or are you too consumed by your own thoughts to notice what’s going on around you? Are you disinterested, or do you not care? Or are you just bored??? The Four of Cups tarot card comes through when you really need to get it together and WAKE UP!
Look, everyone gets caught up in nonsense. Everyone feels sorry for themselves. We all can be a little self-absorbed at times, but it can be a real problem if you’re focused so intently on disappointments, missed expectations, and negativity that you miss out on all of the other potential opportunities coming your way. Open your eyes! Look around you!!Life doesn’t have to feel so mundane, discouraging, and depressing. It’s time to make a change, and the first thing to do is to look around you and notice all that you DO have. Focus on everything that is going well instead of what isn’t working, and express your gratitude rather than take everything for granted. TBH, my darling, when we appreciate what we possess and cherish our present abundance, sometimes we realize we’re good, and we don’t even need anything else. You can work with what you’ve got, maybe even in a new way. Now, that feels quite enchanting.

Four of Cups Upright Meaning
Ugh, isn’t feeling stuck just the WORST?! You’re feeling unmotivated, uninspired, just totally blah. It feels like there is nowhere out of this rut. Okay, it might FEEL like that, but it’s never actually true. There’s always a way out. In fact, the solution is probably right in front of you. You just haven’t given yourself a chance to see it just yet because you are completely blinded by your current apathy.
Is your job really that bad, or are you only considering all of the mundane aspects of your everyday responsibilities? (Here’s a little secret, babe: Even dream jobs have boring moments!) Is there REALLY no one to date, or are you only thinking about the emotionally unavailable player who isn’t returning your texts? There are probably a lot of really wonderful and fun possibilities out there, but they will slip right by you if you can’t be bothered to make the effort to look for them try something different! Closing yourself off from further disappointment and hurt might SEEM like a good idea, but in doing so, the reality is you’re also shutting out the potential for something really wonderful as well. And that would truly be such a shame!

Honestly, maybe everything isn’t so bad and it would be nice to start fresh and seize those juicy opportunities that are right in front of you! This is all part of your healing process. After all, babe, life is what you make of it. These moments are yours for the taking! How refreshing.
