Daily Tarot for September 18, 2013

LlewellynTarot_FourofCups

Our card today is the four of cups.  The Ten of Swords yesterday saw an end to a situation and quite honestly, it’s a relief that it’s over.

Today we are taking some time out to go within and focus on our inner worlds for a while.  Occasionally we need to focus on our own needs and retreat from the stress of the world for a while but we don’t want to stay in that place too long. If we linger in a state of self-absorption we can miss the other gifts that life has to offer us, just as the girl in the card is missing the cup above her. When she comes out of her own world she will see that life has much more to offer her.

Keeping that Ten of Swords in mind from yesterday, if you have indeed been playing the “poor me” game, the four of cups may just be a warning for you that falling into apathy is not the way to solve the problem.  If you don’t snap out of it, life will pass you by!

  1. That’s lovely. I confess I miss the hard edge of the Greek mythology, but this deck is so gentle.

      I think you hit the nail on the head Rusty. We went through a period there with loads of Major Arcana. The illustrations in this deck are just beautiful. Some of the cards have a very mystical feel to them that the Mythic Tarot doesn’t have. Also, the Minor Arcana in this deck is more traditional while in the Mythic Tarot, each of the suits is based on a different Greek Myth so it can add to or somewhat alter the original meaning of the card. As you pointed out in an earlier post, those myths can be pretty harsh too so that’s what gives them that “edge”. The Major Arcana cards in this deck are based on the Welsh myths and some of those are pretty harsh as well. The Star in this deck for example is Branwen.
      (I can’t paste photos in the comments section but here is a link so you can see http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/llewellyn/)

      While this is a beautiful card, Branwen’s story is not a happy one in the least.

  2. Maybe that’s the secret: hard edge for major arcana, gentle for the suits.
