|Sacred Rose Tarot, 1982|
Most RWS 4 of Cups cards show someone looking decidedly bored or distracted, and the Little White Book that came with this deck agrees with that interpretation: 'This card is the foundation of emotions, the inconsistent nature of which is symbolized by the moon and waterfall. There could be boredom, ennui, lack of appreciation of gifts, and the familiarity that breeds contempt.'
My first reaction is that it's an awfully sparkly and attractive card to mean boredom. But on the other hand, even a room full of gold and diamonds might become boring after a while -- the familiarity that breeds contempt.
I will take this card as a warning against allowing such a thing to happen, as today we are off for a weekend holiday, and I certainly don't want to be bored during it! And I certainly don't want to take hubby for granted--he's a sparkly golden aspect of my life that I should never fail to appreciate.
