Four of Cups Tarot speaks of a meditative and contemplating time. In this card, there is a man sitting underneath the tree lost in his thoughts. He has his arms crossed and it seems that he is in some deep meditation trying to figure out his thoughts. There are three cups placed at his feet and an outstretched arm is offering him the fourth one which he does not seem to notice. Rather, he is too engrossed to notice any new opportunity which is right there in front of him.
In this card, the man sitting misses all the precious gifts that life has to offer just because he is way too self-absorbed in his thoughts.
