43-Eight of Cups – Upright Golden Deck

Your Chosen Card – Eight of Cups Upright Golden Deck

When upright, the Eight of Cups indicates that you have surveyed your current situation and it no longer feels emotionally satisfying. Because of this dissatisfaction with circumstances, you have decided to move on in search of greener pastures. Perhaps a project or a relationship has not lived up to expectations. You may be feeling ‘stuck in the mud’ and wanting to look for fulfillment elsewhere. The bottom line is that you are seeking greater joy and happiness because it does not appear to be available in your present circumstances. It is important to determine whether your discontent is based on a valid assessment of your situation or whether you are acting on some illusory notion, for instance, that blonds have more fun.

Keywords Upright: Renewed interest, walking away from a relationship or situation that is no longer satisfying, a new perspective, travel, a journey, seeking greater meaning in life, searching for something that is missing, renewal of intimacy, lifestyle changes, feasting, joy, finding happiness; the grass looks greener on the other side; a blonde girl loses interest.

Tarot Books

Complete Book of Tarot: In Llewellyn’s Classic Tarot, a hand emerges from a cloud on the left-hand side of the card, holding a golden coin upright in the light blue sky. The hand encircles the upper part of the chalice with its thumb facing the viewer. On its surface the golden coin features a pentacle, often used as a talisman in ritual magic. The five points of the pentacle are associated with the five points of the human body (the head and four limbs) and with the classical five senses (touch, sight, taste, smell, and hearing). People characterized by the suit of Coins or Pentacles tend to be grounded in material reality but may have difficulty making contact with their sixth sense of intuition.

Portable Magic: Imagine a ring of golden light expanding from your heart centre through the air to link all twelve signs of the zodiac in their rectangles above the rugs of the trumps.
