Four of Water
With the Four of Water, feelings solidify and come into stasis. For a time this may be appropriate—your cup may be full and you may need some time to reevaluate or re-establish a connection to your own emotional truth. But feelings are meant to flow, and shutting down emotionally for too long can lead to isolation, detachment, apathy and stagnation. The Four tells us yes, by all means take some emotional time out, but don’t get stuck there.
Below is the woodblock print that I made for this card. It was created using a single block, with reduction cutting for the cork and multiple applications of color on the body of the jar. I really love printing this way. I made three of these prints, although the red color looks very different on each one. This was my favorite of the three.
