Your card today is the Eight of Cups. This is a card of change and transition and it’s a sign that it’s time to reassess your life and priorities. It’s likely that you are giving too much and not getting nearly enough in exchange, or perhaps a relationship or situation just isn’t working out. No matter your circumstances, something has to change so that you can start moving forward again.
In the Mythic Tarot and in almost all Tarot decks, we see an image of a person walking away from all the Cups they have created. It was something the person thought they wanted and were so invested in, but just wasn’t right and something vital was missing.
Do you need to let go of a relationship, job, or location? It’s easy to stay invested for all the wrong reasons. Perhaps you feel obliged or pressured, but what is it that what your heart really wants? It’s time to cut your losses and be true to yourself.
If you want to change your circumstances, you often need to start by changing yourself in some way. Healing emotional hurt and putting the past behind you can put a fresh new perspective on your life. Healing you will also change the energy of a relationship or situation that hasn’t been working: it will either change for the better, or you will leave it behind and move forward.
The Dalai Lama once said ‘sometimes not getting what you want can be the most wonderful stroke of luck’. Take heart if you are hurting right now. Sometimes we don’t get what we want, but just what we need. Moving on could create the space for new and better possibilities beyond your wildest dreams.
Perhaps a better future or new person is just around the corner? How can you get there? Come for a reading and together we can see where your choices may lead, and what may be ahead for you.
