Four of Cups
I have really been enjoying the water colour artwork of the Llewellyn Tarot this week. It's a lovely deck. I even like the wide borders; they seem in keeping with the art. I just wish the deck were even bigger than it is. The art's so beautiful, I'd like to get a closer look at it.
This is the Four of Cups, which the companion book assigns the traditional contemporary meaning of 'discontent and isolation'. However, it does add the hopeful note: 'It is an encouraging card, indicating help that seems to be divine intervention ensuring one has all the cups one needs.'
I don't feel particularly discouraged today; the weather has cooled off and I get to leave work at 3.30 today, then tomorrow I'm off to the London Tarot Festival and will see a friend I haven't seen in -- a year? Time flies. It could be that work will be a bit trying today, as it often is. This card could be a wider picture of my life, showing that things in general are just looking up, despite a gloom that has hung over it for quite a while.
I followed the advice of yesterday's 7 of Wands and submitted my application for the post. If I get the job, we will move to a new town. I could commute by train but it would be a long commute and costly. I've lived in this town for 13 years, and have worked in the same job for 11 years (in November). It would be nice to move to a new place and work in a new place, but if I don't get the job, that will be okay, too.
We'll just have to wait and see if any 4 of Cups feelings arise today.
