4 of Cups

Daily Draw: Four of Cups and Seven of Swords

So, today’s draw comprises two of the cards in the Tarot with which your Oracle has the most difficulty. Yay! #no But still we soldier on no matter how gross the cards make us feel, yes? And that’s kind of what this draw is about anyway: there’s apathy and disappointment and a general malaise and boredom about in the world, which makes sense after a major sporting event happened yesterday that, even if you didn’t engage with it still managed to affect pretty much everything around you unless you are a lucky Red Fire Monkey and you live in a cave. It’s important to keep your eyes open and pay attention to what’s going on around you — the world didn’t stop just because of that crazy game yesterday, and it’s still moving today. Pay attention to what you’re doing, keep moving, and get done what you need to get done no matter how big a pain in the ass it is. Remember, people are going to talk no matter what, so don’t worry about the jibber jabber. Be aware of it as much as you can, but don’t let it stop you.

Daily Draw: Two of Swords and Four of Cups

Today’s draw is about the shearing away of what is over and gone, and the necessity of sitting in quiet contemplation while it happens. This is a natural process, an organic thing that accompanies changes between one state and another: what went before and was so critical at the time is no longer useful, and in fact may be weighing you down and causing toxic reactions in your new reality. Let it go. Sit down, breathe, and let yourself feel whatever is true at the moment. Do that meditative thing where everything just passes you by. Cling to nothing, and just float in the eternal now.

Daily Draw: Lily, Four of Cups rev. (Hevring), and Eir (Doctor)

Today’s draw is about letting go of grief and focusing on healing and moving forward. Grow into the new reality, the new way of being, and let yourself and the world around you be healed. What has passed on is now blossoming into something new in a way that is meant to be. Protect those weaker than you, and do your best to lift up those who are in need of help. You are being held by your Ancestors even if you can’t see or feel it. Get up and move. Don’t sit and wallow any more. It’s time to go.

Daily Draw: 4 of Cups (rev), Hevring

Today’s draw is about leaving grief behind and moving on. Seriously, look at the charms: there’s the Rider and the Chariot, for god’s sake. MOVE. Do something. Get out, get back into the flow of life. You are chained to your grief and only getting up and out can break those chains. Note: they are ancestral in origin so don’t get all bound up and hard on yourself. The pain has been carried down through generations, and you’re just one person. You can’t fix it all by yourself. But you can fix YOU, or at least make living for yourself more bearable by letting these painful burdens go. You’re in danger of wallowing in your dissatisfaction, boredom, and depression, and that’s suckage on a monster scale. Let the change currently working away at you carry these things away. Don’t try to hang onto them. Let them go. Go play in the sun.
