Four of Cups Tarot Card Meaning

Written and illustrated by Grace Duong

The traditional Rider Waite depiction of the Four of Cups card features a man with crossed arms sitting forlorn against a tree while a hand appears emerging out of a cloud to the side of him, offering him a cup. However, he ignores the offer, seeming not to notice as he is so focused on his troubles. In Front of him at his crossed legs are three other cups. It seems this man is so involved with his own issues, he is unable to see the opportunities in front of him. The card suggests a moment of introspection or dissatisfaction with the current circumstances. The person may be deep in thought, contemplating their emotions, desires, or evaluating their options. The fourth cup being offered represents a potential new opportunity or perspective that the person may be overlooking.

In the Mystic Monday’s Tarot deck, the Four of Cups card is depicted as a feminine figure sitting in a meditative position, with her hands touching together in prayer position. Three blue cups are in front of her with one purple cup on top of her head. Even though the purple cup is glowing, the woman is not paying attention as she is deep in contemplation and withdrawal. There are two palm trees in the background amidst an abstract desert landscape.

Four of Cups Numerology

Four symbolizes structure, stability, and building a strong foundation. When you pull a card associated with number 4, it means that it’s time to build a strong and sturdy foundation for the future. This foundation will give you the strength to grow and keep building upon this foundation. Numerology 4 brings loyalty, practicality, and endurance. Four is also associated with the four elements (air, earth, fire, water) and the four seasons (spring, summer, fall, winter). It can also represent home and themes of ancestry. Your roots can be a source of support for sustainable growth when facing change.

General Four of Cups Card Upright Meaning

Although you are content in your life, you are feeling bored and restless. The rat race is wearing you down and the status quo no longer appeals to you. You are at odds with yourself. Do you listen to your deepest desires or do you stay stagnant but safe? The fear of the unknown is causing you to withdraw, getting away from distractions to find peace. This is the time to contemplate, meditate, and reflect on what your true desires are, and if you are living life to the fullest. The opportunities are there, oftentimes right in front of you! You may be too self-absorbed in your own problems to notice the possibilities that lie before you. Shift your perspective, open your eyes, and you will see that what you seek is much more accessible to you than you originally thought it was. You have options!

General Four of Cups Reversed Meaning

Opportunities are right under your nose; however, you are completely unaware of them because you are absorbed in your own issues. Instead of being open to the possibilities, you are convinced there is only one way to solve your problems. Achieving your goals is great, but remember, it’s experiencing the journey along the way that makes the finish line so satisfying. Getting stuck on a negative train of thought is not constructive, particularly if you’re the only one on that ride. There is a difference between being alone and feeling lonely. Protecting yourself by withdrawing away from your relationships is keeping you isolated instead of keeping you safe. Open yourself up to new opportunities, places, and people. Saying yes can actually lead you to exactly where you need to go.
