Full Meaning

The Four of Cups is a card of consolidation, but it is also a card that may mean you are becoming a little bored with a situation that has become all too familiar. Things that perhaps once seemed new and exciting are now beginning to seem worn and outdated. In many respects this card often goes hand in hand with the old saying "The grass is greener on the other side". However the question that you must really ask yourself now is whether or not this is really the case. You may find yourself presented with a number of opportunities but you need to weigh up all of the pros and cons carefully. The Four of Cups in your spread tends to suggest that the time could be right for making long term plans and don't make any rash decisions just because you may be feeling a little bored at the moment.

Traditional Symbolism

A young man is seated under a tree and contemplates three cups set on the grass before him; an arm issuing from a cloud offers him another cup. His expression notwithstanding is one of discontent with his environment.
