The 4 of Cups: Sending Me Another “Sign”

Last week, I posted about my experience with the 4 of Cups Tarot card.

Well, I’m sharing another 4 of Cups experience with you that happened to me today.

If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, then you’ll know that working with Tarot is a part of my daily spiritual practice; Tarot is a big part of both my life and my work.

Every morning, after recording my dreams in my dream journal, I’ll get down on the floor of my bedroom and pull my daily card from my deck of the month and write down any thoughts and feelings about the card in my Tarot journal right there.

This morning, still working with the Dore Great Bible Tarot (the deck I’ve been using this month), I drew—just like I did last week—the 4 of Cups.

And this is some of what I wrote in my journal in response:
Seeking other possibilities. Be on the lookout for a “sign.” Help is on the way. Spiritual messages/messengers.

What I sometimes will do is share my card as a post on my Facebook page. But since the Dore Great Bible Tarot is a deck I use only for my personal work, I didn’t want to post the card from the deck on the page (even though I did in last week’s post, and again today here).

So, I “felt” the prompt to use the card from another deck—specifically the Archangel Power Tarot by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine.

Pulling the deck from the box, I have it in my right hand, the pile face down. Turning over the entire deck, so that the bottom card is now on top, what card do I see? The 4 of Cups (which is the 4 of Raphael in this deck)! I have a nice chuckle, as I see this as some sort of “sign.” I mean, what are the odds?

But wait—this gets better. I get another prompt to take a look at the 4 of Cups in the Guardian Angel Tarot (again by Virtue and Valentine), which was the deck underneath the Archangel Power Tarot on my Tarot stand in my room.

I pull the deck out of the box, again the stack of cards in my right hand, face down. I turn over the entire deck so I can see the bottom card. Guess what it is? That’s right—the 4 of Cups (which is the 4 of Emotion in this deck)! I kid you not—not making this up!

That was two for two! I pull the card and then it repeats as a one-two punch–from two different decks!

So, I was put on notice to be on the lookout for a “sign,” for the messages coming from Spirit’s messengers. And I think I got it.

Spirit wanted to really drive this point home today!

I share this story with you as an invitation to see how Spirit sends you signs and messages—and to notice the forms in which they come.
