Four of Cups Tarot Card DESCRIPTION: illustration, colors, and symbolism
- Four of Cups Tarot Card shows a man sitting below a tree with three cups before him. He sits with his arms crossed and his head down, as if in meditation and contemplation or deep thought. He is sitting at the top of a mountain. Despite his fertile, calm surroundings, his expression is glum. He is so engrossed in his thoughts that he does not seem to notice the outstretched arm offering him a cup. A cloud offers the fourth cup, symbolizing a new start. Although the cloud is right in front of the young man, he either can’t see it or refuses to see it. Just like the tree that is in full leaf, resembling abundant life going on all around him. The imagery here calls attention to focusing too much on our own thoughts, and perceptions. Like the man, we are often so busy focusing on the three cups in front of us, we never notice other options and possibilities. The man on the card is dissatisfied with his current state of being.
