Every Tuesday I select one card and give you my interpretation of it. See how it applies to your life. What messages are here for you?
Each Thursday I choose one reader's comment from Intuitive Tuesday and pull an additional card for more clarity...so check back on Thursday to see what cards come up.
Today's card is the Four of Cups. Fours symbolize stability and foundation (think of a sturdy table with four legs), and Cups represent feelings and emotions.
So the Four of Cups represents emotional security. Sometimes this can lead to periods of stasis and perhaps boredom, which can lead to feeling discontent or dissatisfied.
As you can see on the card, there are four cups -- three on the ground and one being offered from above. With this card, there is a feeling of longing or wanting more, possibly not seeing or acknowledging what's in front of you.
This is a perfect card for Thanksgiving week. It reminds us to see the emotions, feelings and life that are represented by the cups that are right in front of us...every day. Especially if life has seemed steady and somewhat boring lately, now is the time to realize what gifts you truly have.
The message of the Four of Cups is to take time to meditate and contemplate before forging ahead. Don't just do something (anything) simply to step out of being bored. Be thoughtful about where you are and take time to be grateful for what you have.
Pay attention to the good things in your life and if you need to create action to keep from being bored, do so in a positive way. Be creative. For example, if you are bored in a relationship, take the time and effort to infuse it with life. If you lack interest in your work, find one aspect of a project and jump in with both feet. Decide to shine in this area of your life.
The Four of Cups is a time to pause, contemplate and realize that life truly is pretty good. This Thanksgiving week, one of the things you may be grateful for is having a stable life that may feel boring at times, but only long enough to prompt you to move forward once again.
