Four of Cups
Modern Witch Tarot
February 6-10, 2023: "OVER IT," declares the wording on our Tarot friend's grey hoodie. Just as in more conventional Four of Cups paintings, she looks totally uninterested in what she has (the three goblets arrayed before her) and what she could have (the fourth one, proffered by a spirit hand floating in mid-air). Even her cellphone, on the ground beside her, goes ignored.
As I've mentioned elsewhere, sometimes it pays to follow clues that arise as you gaze at a Tarot card. What details draw your eyes? What words, sounds, or music do you suddenly hear? What energies do you feel in your body?
In this case, I'm being drawn to certain colors--the yellow bricks, the placid blue sky seen through a large window, the grey floor. Though yellow is usually a high-energy color associated with the intellect--quick, bright, uplifting, and motivating--this orderly arrangements of bricks into a strong wall, combined with the figure's closed, refusing body language, suggests lack of movement, being dead-set against whatever might be newly offered. In the little box that comes with her deck, Sterle mentions cynicism.
The grey of the floor and hoodie--Wait... Is that grey lipstick, too?--suggest this person is wallowing in a limbo state of indecision or even depression. The blue of the sky does what blue does. It refreshes. Or, at least here, it offers refreshment.
The "cups" in Sterle's suite of Cups are all simple, modest in form and of a mid-toned pink, not expensive, precious metal goblets. They're there for anyone who needs them. Anyone, that is, willing to open mind and heart and take the gift.
