Keywords for the Four of Cups Tarot Card

  • Boredom, apathy, feeling unfulfilled
  • Meditation, withdrawal, looking within
  • An unexpected offering
  • A missed opportunity or blind spot


In this card, the octopus is so focused on what’s directly in front of him that he doesn’t see the fish chasing behind him! That’s such an apt way of depicting this message, which is about feeling so unfulfilled and bored with your life you’ve become blind to the gifts and opportunities in front of you.


This card is about pulling away from the “normal” day-to-day and focusing on the wild and creative part of you that sits deep inside instead.


The way to cure your apathy and ennui is by diving within yourself to identify your core values, passions, and desires and then bring your anchored sense of identity to life with passion and enthusiasm without caring about what anyone else thinks. When you are on the right path, you’ll can grab at the synchronicities and gifts in front of you to create your own opportunities.
