4 of Cups as a Daily Tarot Oracle Card

Oracle Message: Dot the is and cross the ts. Go on, do it, do it now..


Boredom, and the 4 of Cups, can be perceived from two angles – that you don’t have enough or nothing to do, or that you have sailed through your work with so much ease that are simply not challenged enough by it. That’s an interesting idea and thought and not one commonly suggested. All eyes are usually on the single standing cup that is just out of eye sight….

The danger lies today in being forgetful, thinking you have covered all your tasks, finishing early, slacking off, playing a computer game, going shopping and then realising too late that you missed something very important. Or finding out the hard way – by your boss, your partner, the nipper you forgot to pick up from soccer practice or the phone company about to disconnect your service.

There’s a muckiness in the air today and it can catch you out. Make sure you double check everything and then check it again. If you think you covered all bases, go over them one more time. I would hate for you to be vegging out in front of the TV only to discover your error too late.
