Switching Gears

Daily Draw: Art of Life Tarot ~ 4 of Cups

When we get out of sorts, after being on an even keel, what happened? In the RWS standard there are three cups out of reach and the figure is ignoring the one beside him. In the Thoth all four cups are overflowing and the card is titled luxury.

Why the difference? Is there a difference? Not really. The cups are all there, we just aren't using them to our benefit. Finding ourselves lax or inattentive, rather than focused = frittering away of life hours, the only real luxury we have control over.

“Every luxury must be paid for, and everything is a luxury, starting with being in this world”
 Cesare Pavese ~ 1908-1950


  1. I drew the 2 of pentacles and I might be frittering my life away by sheer inaction. Like the gal in the 4 of cups in RWS, possibly worrying about the last cup we forget how much joy was gained from drinking life up in the other 3 cups. Sorry to hear there was trouble in dreamland. Lets just turn on some music and get up and dance.

  2. I wonder if we've gotten so addicted to constant entertainment that when the channel of life doesn't change fast enough we get bored and frustrated.


I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
