Card of the Day – 4♥ – Four of Hearts (Cups)

Four of Cups10/31 – a 4♥ Day. Happy Halloween!

This card shows that when we are preoccupied with ourselves, we sometimes miss out on the love that is being offered to us. In the card, the figure is so self-absorbed and focused on themselves and/or the three cups in the foreground, that the additional cup being offered goes completely unseen. How can you open up and see what love is right in front of you?

Another relevant interpretation of this card is ‘introspection’. Traditionally, this time of year is when the veil between the worlds of the physical (here on earth) and the spiritual is more permeable, and hence many traditions honor this: Day of the Dead in Mexico, All Saint’s Day and All Soul’s Day in the Christian tradition, and Samhain in the pagan tradition. All of these reflect that it is a special time for us to go within (like this card!) and meditate on our thoughts, connect with those loved ones who have passed on. Also, with Mercury retro in effect, it is another good time to go within and review/meditate/listen/connect with our deepest selves.
