Four of Cups: general, standing and reversed meaning

Four of Cups, general description

Four of Cups is the 52nd card of the Major Arcana. It is part of Fatecaster’s Tarot card list that summarizes the Rider Waite Tarot cards’ meaning.

This card is about the mood of fullness and banking up. It refers to the shiftiness of our emotions. In one minute we aspire to something wholeheartedly but in the next one, after satisfying with full completion it becomes the opposite: we refuse the thing we desired and disgust and depression grow on us.

This bad mood can be fuss, bluntness, bickering, defiance and bitterness. In such cases, the card is a warning against not letting our bad mood whirl us into apathy, and not to ignore the obvious opportunities and gestures that you can make peace with.

Four of Cups (luxury), standing

Love and devotion are all around you and you think that’s natural. You ignore reality and eager for impalpable. Apathy and withdraw from the world. Dissatisfaction with how things are and where they are going but excluding the new opportunities.


Four of Cups (luxury), reversed

New and unusual relations and opportunities. Resuscitation of hunger of life and love. Path of excessiveness that brings mental renewal and new ambitions.
