Eight of Cups

The Fool Tarot Card

You drew the Eight of Cups which means it is time to move from something that once brought you great joy. On this card, a man has given up his eight cups in order to turn his attention to the moon. It's the morning after a night of indulgence. It's time to admit that you may have wasted your emotions on something or someone who wasn't deserving of them. You need to find someplace or a state of being where you can let go of your restraints.

It's time to take care of the things or people you care about, whether or not they've fulfilled your wishes. A new dream is calling to you - it may have been calling for a while, but you are now conscious of it.

The number eight indicates that your life is stable and secure, but at a personal cost. You're probably dissatisfied with your present situation and need to make some lifestyle adjustments. It may represent a powerful push for you to let go of something and move on, finding the confidence to try new things. To discover the cause of your unhappiness, you'll have to look carefully at your job, your relationship, and your own views, and then determine whether you're ready to retreat and sacrifice part of your life's stability in order to achieve happiness.

When humans are ready to move on, they give out little signals. Many people in relationships claim they sensed a breakup was coming weeks before it happened. The fidgeting of the pupils may indicate when a class should be dismissed. You can tell whether someone is about to leave a job by their lack of enthusiasm and tardiness. It's a sign that you're ready to go on when you start gently removing or unburdening yourself from the attitudes and decisions you've lived with before. When it's time to move on, we can all sense it, and the Eight of Cups represents that feeling.

On the Eight of Cups, a range of mountain peaks strewn over the landscape are illuminated by the full moon. A number of cups are stacked all around and on top of one another in the foreground. Behind them, a guy stands with his back to the cups. With his walking stick in hand, he seems ready to tackle the next mountain. He has a little hunch in his shoulders, as if he is carrying a personal burden. He does not, however, return his gaze to the cups; instead, he stares forward.

Trust in the Healing of Letting Go

This card indicates that it is time to let go of something. Every stage of life builds on the previous one; you can only go ahead once you're ready to use what you've learned in the past to create a future. When you're ready to move on, you'll recognise it by your uncomfortable, fidgety, dismissive behaviours. Take these signals to heart, and remember that it's okay to let go of certain things.

The Eight of Cups may be warning you to keep a close check on yourself if your energy levels are low. Are you working yourself to exhaustion? Forcing yourself to go through motions that you don't feel comfortable with? It might imply ending a dissatisfying relationship, job, professional path, living situation, or creative activity. These are the indications that you need to move on from a situation in your life. If you continue to dwell in this energy, it will pull you down - this card may be urging you to take action.

Here are some things to ask yourself if you draw the Eight of Cups. Do you find yourself in a rut? Do you find yourself weary, listless, or disinterested in your life, or a particular aspect of it? Is it time to make a change? What are the benefits of staying here? What are you giving up by moving on?
