I tend to look at movement depicted in tarot cards as an indicator of a particular sequence of events. As with the Weekend Tarot Reading of April 29, the only figure who is in motion is the one in the central card — this time, the Six of Wands — and this sets the direction for all three cards as they work together. In a nutshell, this reading is inviting me to read it from left to right, and it feels straightforward in terms of form, although the content will be unique for each of us, especially that of the third card, The Devil.
The Four of Cups and Six of Wands form a pairing that stands in visual contrast to The Devil. Both share similar colours; both are bright. In the Four of Cups, a male figure sits under a tree, either ignoring or unaware of the Cup being offered to him by a hand issuing from a small cloud. I often refer to this single cup as the Ace of Cups in miniature, the Ace of Cups being the source of all love — in other words, divine love, before it is manifested in its many different guises in our lives.
Divine love comes from another place. We can feel it, but it defies description, which tries to limit to words something that is limitless. The closest my words can take me today is the moment when we ‘click’ into oneness with everything, and that feels painfully insufficient. In the Four of Cups, the young man is so preoccupied with something — perhaps the three cups on the ground that he feels are not giving him what he wants — that he is failing to notice something else that has the potential to give him so much more. He has the opportunity to reach out and take a gift that would end his sense of isolation, self-absorption and disillusionment.
