Four of Cups - Snap out of it!

Rider Waite Tarot Four of Cups Rose Quartz Citrine
Today’s card is the Four of Cups from the Smith-Waite Centennial Tarot. This card is all about discontent, boredom and lack of interest in about everything. Look how he has closed himself off from all outside suggestions on how to feel better. If we are getting stuck in this energy it can easily lead to self-pity and even depression.

It has been quite a while since I really felt like blogging or in doing anything whatsoever and this card depicts this feeling perfectly well,. Yes, I have been very busy moving my husband to a temporary care home because the house where he was living before is getting a rebuild. This event was physical and emotional draining for me. It left me with little energy for myself and it eventually got the best of me. I know all too well this kind of thinking can easily become habitual and self-sustaining. I knew something had to change but it felt like I wasn’t able to do so. Until this morning, when M told me I had to become responsible for my own wellbeing and to be willing to do the things which would make me feel better. She can be quite persuasive when she feels it is necessary. So I got out of my chair, took a shower, went out for some groceries and started blogging. I feel like a different woman now. I have flipped a switch and I have snapped out of this funk.  Thank you, my dear girl, for a firm kick in the butt.

  1. It is so easy to get in that spiral. Like the gal in the Four of Cups we feel a bit out of sorts and decide to take a time out and before we know it we become stuck in the time out. Go sit in the sunshine, it always 'charges' my battery up.

    1. Sitting in the Sun it not my thing but sitting in my garden in a shaded place will do the trick as well

  2. This makes my heart ache for you. I'm so sorry you reached such a point of exhaustion and hope the best for your husband while his home is rebuilt. Your turn around in motivation and perspective is so inspiring. I appreciate your insights to the 4 of Cups and can't wait to read more of your content. What a treasure trove!

  4. Those who live with us often know all (or most) of our secrets and idiosyncrasies. :D Tell M 'thank you' for telling you what you needed to hear. Gentle hugs and wishes for strength and the energy to get you through what lies ahead.

  5. Ellen, glad to see you back. I was wondering about you a few days ago. A very timely post, I feel like moving through each day the best I can at the moment. The good news is that 'we' know when something isn't right, and can eventually find our way out. And in your case, thank goodness for M. It's good to have a extra support system. (((Hugs)))

  6. So glad that M gave you that necessary kick in the butt! Though I can also quite see why you got in a funk. Moving your husband is not only stressful, but also a reminder of the fact that you have to take care of him, rather than having him there, helping you with the family responsibilities. That is a mental and spiritual stress. With perhaps a need to take time again to mourn... And now, you can return from the Underworld, coming back up into the light, and discovering the spring :) Hugs to you, dear friend!
