Four of Moths
FOUR OF MOTHS
Two friends lounge nude and relaxed pool side. Their drinks are sweet and frosty, and the affections of a friendly stray cat are welcome under the balmy blue sky. The Four of Moths reflects on the fact that you may have just faced a great hardship or challenge, and now is the time to kick back and relax. While you may feel like there is so much you still need to do, this card is a reminder that there are always going to be new stressors on the horizon. In a society that constantly asks you to “suck it up” and deal, this card reminds you that self care is important! Taking time to relax and enjoy yourself will open your mind up to new ideas and creative opportunities you would never consider after such a stressful time. While enjoying yourself may involve spending time with a close friend, it can also mean taking a nice hot bath alone, or spending a day on your own to reflect on where you’ve been, and how far you’ve come. There’s nothing wrong with taking some “me” time.
Reversed: There’s so much to do, and you just can’t enjoy yourself! Reversed, this card suggests you may be falling into an age-old trap. In a capitalist society that values productivity and accomplishment over personal growth and mental well-being, it is easy to feel that you need to be doing everything at once to feel fulfilled. You may be pushing yourself to the point of exhaustion or illness, even when your spirit is begging for a break. Perhaps you are throwing yourself into work instead of facing some difficult personal problems. This card is urging you to take a step back and really get in touch with what you need right now. You deserve a rest. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
