Eight of Cups

My thoughts- Unbalance. Okay, so a confession… I have ocd. So the first thing I notice is that the cups aren’t stacked evenly. It appears to me, as if the sun and the moon are both in the sky as this person is walking around the river/creek. At least he is wearing bright colors so he will be seen.

The book- The Eight of Cups is about leaving the known and comfortable for the unknown. The reasons and results are different for each journey and seeker. What is common to the experience is the promise of transformation. Even if we return, we will be different, and therefore nothing will ever be the same again.

The Universal Waite Card- A man leaves his ordered rows of cups. There is clearly something missing, indicated by the open space in the top row. He seeks that missing piece. The mountains in the background imply a challenging journey, and the moon represent change and the unknown.

Core Meaning- Leaving something behind to search for something else.
