Four of Cups
Keywords: boredom, apathy, withdrawal, discontent, rejection, offering, meditation
General meaning: You’ve pulled away to regroup. Why? Because what’s in front of you hasn’t been satisfying. This is a period of contemplation and sorting out the options. Everything seems stale and boring. Meh. Are you unable to see the cool stuff right in front of your face? Maybe you’re just a malcontent. Rejecting. Pushing away help. Either you’re a bummer or getting all Zen ‘n stuff.
Reversed: The Four of Cups reversed suggests a new outlook. That mental/emotional breakthrough that you needed is at hand. Viola – no more complacency. You’re getting a big ole sign from the Universe. It’s like right there. Stop messing around and act on it. Getting back in the game after some time away.
Affirmation: I choose to see the opportunities in front of me.
Theme song: “Mope” by Bloodhound Gang
Journaling prompt: Find the most boring task you can imagine. Notice where your mind goes when you are engaged in this task. Can you stay focused on the work at hand or does your mind drift? Journal about your findings.
So you decided you’re bored
And hate everything
What do you expect
Constant thrills and bling?
Drop that attitude
Let go of dat mope
You might just find
Dat yo’ life is dope.
You don’t really need
Swag every minute
Get back in da game
Jump right in it.
