Unhappiness in spite of success, disappointment in healthy fruits of efforts. Accepting victory passively, losing interest in life.
A couple, a young woman and man, has an outdoor meal on the carpet laid on the ground under a grapevine. The woman holds a cup in her hand, while three cups stand on the tray. In spite of beautiful surrounding of flowers and grape, they do not look happy. The woman is depicted from behind, and as seems she glances at the city that is in the distance. The man sits in the meditative pose lost in thought. It is a moment of self- reflection when both of them are introspective and focuses on own feelings only.
Four of Cups represents a situation of losing interest in life, boredom, and apathy. There is no motivation to make any efforts. Boredom and fantastic daydreams cause self-absorption and escapism from reality in different forms, including alcohol and drugs. There are the following characteristics of this card:
– being passive;
– having not enough life force;
– reflecting instead of acting;
– making no efforts.
