Four Of Cups – Wild Unknown Tarot
I. Image description on Four of Cups Wild Unknown Tarot
Deck Creator’s keywords: selfishness, greed, withdrawal, indifference.
We go from the landscape colors of the previous card to the monotone scene. Four cups lay on the bottom of the card, and a rat sprawls across the entire area on its own. Rats are often associated with being sneaky and generally mean. This mouse definitely looks like it is trying to hoard these cups for itself.
The lower part of the card is dark, giving the impression that the mouse is in a lower dwelling, perhaps a sewer or a hole. But the bright white light of the moon extends to the top half of the card. However, the mouse has no eyes on the illuminated world – its focus is on the lower abdomen.
Four of Cups Wild Unknown Tarot is clearly one of the cards in the deck that confuses readers more than the others. It certainly conveys the keywords the deck’s creators put forth (selfish and greedy) but it doesn’t open up to as much complexity as the Waite-Smith Tarot deck’s description of the card.
That said, there are two ways to view selfishness and we can use both of them as a prism to interpret this card. In some cases, selfishness is merely selfish. The rat is protecting what he has, not wanting to open himself up to other possibilities, keeping himself focused on his own emotional context.
Outsiders can look into your life and see supportive relationships, contentment, and even a touch of luxury. But you don’t think so. Instead, there is dissatisfaction, blandness, and even more greed. Four of Cups Wild Unknown Tarot warns you not to underestimate your position and those who have always supported you. Take a look around yourself. What are the things you really want? Let’s name it.

Four of Cups Wild Unknown Tarot represents depression, this card appears when you are feeling unhappy and have no motivation to do anything. You are bored with your current life and cannot find any direction. The card predicts that there will not be any satisfaction when you do not take action to change.

Being too immersed in your inner world can be a disadvantage, causing you to miss out on golden opportunities. Disconnection and lethargy are possible in this card.
But from another perspective, emotional withdrawal does not necessarily signify a form of negative apathy. Sometimes you need to dig deep, forget about the bright things the outside world is bringing, and let your emotions settle. After all, four is the amount of structure and stability, and the cups are the emotional fit. So Four of Cups Wild Unknown Tarot can advise you to return to your own emotional center.
