In the past, the Four of Cups card means that you are now recovering from something that you have gone through in your past.  You will think of an event that happened in your life and see that it didn’t go the way you wanted it to. Do you still think about it?  Time will heal things, but it doesn’t feel like you are healed and just want to be happy.  Look at things from a bigger picture.


The present o the Four of Cups means that you have to think outside of your ideas.  You have been hurt in the past, but you won’t keep being hurt.  You have to have time to heal and not rush it.  Know that you have to help yourself and see things differently.  Find what you are missing and see the bigger picture.


The future of the Four of Cups is that there will be a time where you have to stop and think about what you are doing.  You will have to make decisions that are hard but know that you have to help yourself and see things differently. Decisions are hard, but you have to learn to understand what you are doing.  Think about your future choices and decide which ones are better for you.


With your work, you will see that your job isn’t what you want it to be.  So you keep working, but you hope you can find a better job.


The Four of Cups will mean different things for love.  Be sure you don’t hide things and talk about what you are thinking.  Figure out what is missing if you want to meet someone that could mean that you are presenting yourself wrong.  Ask people for advice and think about all angles of it.


The Four of Cups is a time to think about your friends and not ignore people.  So don’t hold on to the drama and figure out how to understand what is going on in your friendships.


There is a mixed sign with your finances in the Four of Cups.  One can be that you are not wealthy because you are stubborn and don’t listen or understand.  So instead, focus on the things you are doing and build your skills.


The Four of Cups feels that you should pay attention to what your body is telling you.  If you have pains, do not ignore them.  Do not eat things that are bad for you, and do not neglect your diet.  Don’t forget if something is bothering you and fix it.


The Four of Cups with your spiritual being means that you will meditate and try to figure out how to solve all of your problems.  Even thinking about them will not always make you understand them.  Your mind goes and does what it wants but try to keep your thoughts positive.  It is hard to be happy when you think negatively.


Look at life from the bigger picture.  Do not let things distract you from your goals.


The Four of Cups represents the number four.  Three can go and be grounded, but you have to have all four when you think of life.  Plan the best life you can have, but don’t spend all of your time planning.  You have to take action.  If you have a lot of fours in your reading, this can mean that you have made a good plan, and now you are being rewarded.
