Four of Cups

A man sits on the ground, leaning against a tree, arms crossed.  He stares at three cups on the ground before him and seems not to see the single cup that is materializing in the air.

The individual is focused on the past, dwelling on happy times that are gone, and is ignoring or just doesn’t see new opportunities being offered to him.  May indicate a person who is unable or unwilling to get over a failed relationship and therefore can’t start a new one.

Reversed:  The individual is letting go of old relationships and is starting over.  Perhaps a new love interest or romance.

EXAMPLES:  Your friend who’s stuck in the gloom and doom phase after she broke up with her boyfriend and can’t talk about anything but how much she misses her ex.

Someone who is obsessed with a business venture or project that failed and refuses to move on to another one.
