Another perfect pair. Upright, the 4 Cups is the depression card. But to look beyond the keyword I use, it is really about stagnation.

Emotions, like water, need to flow freely. Poisons grow in stagnant waters. Upright, the 4 Cups suggests emotions are not flowing freely. Today’s card is reversed, which suggests there may be a flush coming through, an opportunity to look afresh at what’s bugging us.

Since that can be scary, Dog Rose promotes confidence and courage. It helps to overcome niggling fears and doubts, allowing an “increase in the vital force,” to quote directly from Ian White.

Bring it on, I say.
