Eight of Cups
The Eight of Cups represents changes caused by disappointment, withdrawal and abandonment. The Moon in the Night’s sky of the Eight of Cups directs you to a more spiritual path. The wanderer’s red cloak represents your decision to drop everything, telling you it might be too rash. It represents you wishing to run away from something that is upsetting you, and you want to just withdraw from the world. The situation you left may be leaving you feeling discontent but there are other opportunities out there, over the hill, if you are willing to go out and search for them. Better things are on the horizon.
Eight of Cups (Reversed)
When the Eight of Cups Reversed appears, it brings the confusion in your life to clarity. It’s time to celebrate how far you have come. You know the journey has not been easy, but now that you have completed it, you know you wouldn’t change any part of it. This signifies a time to heal, and a time to pick up all of your heart’s broken pieces. If you are looking for a new love, abandon your usual methods and ideals. What worked for you in the past won’t work for you this time. You’re a different person and you are looking for a different type of partner. Happiness isn’t guaranteed. You will only find it when you start looking for it.
