Eight of Cups|
The Eight of Cups is the card of
the wanderer and the seeker.
Focus on this card when you want to
find lost objects, complete a longstanding mission, or
embark on a spiritual retreat.
A young man walks away from
eight silver cups that have been stacked, pyramid
style. A gap in the center, however, threatens the
stability of the arrangement.
Symbolically, the cups
represent a life that seems to be carefully ordered
and arranged — except for one key piece.
He might be off to find the
missing piece — or he might be abandoning the
project, unwilling or unable to complete it.
His walking stick suggests that
he’s planning a long journey.
The young man is dressed in
blue, the elemental color of water. It indicates
that he’s emotional and deep, and that he’s
practicing water magic.
He’s pictured in an autumn
landscape, because the suit of cups corresponds to
the season of autumn.
