Eight of Cups, Minor Arcana, indicates leaving something behind, a turning point. This card indicates that you are looking for deeper meanings and a more intense joy to what has been a somewhat mundane life. You have a desire to be somewhere else or to leave a relationship that is not bringing you emotional fulfillment. You may be feeling that there is not much left to give of yourself. Walking away at this point may be the best option. You want to escape, but will better serve yourself if you find the answers within. You must discover your true spiritual needs and put less importance on your material possessions. You realize that all the materialistic things you have acquired will not make you truly happy. This card indicates that you have grown tired of your old ways and you need to find some way to fill that void. You may feel disenchanted and frustrated with the lack of progress. This is a time for you to look for some form of spiritual fulfillment. Once this has been achieved, positive changes will happen.
There is depression and emotional scarring. You are closed off from others. You have come to a point in your life where you are numbing your feelings and emotions. This may lead to some type of substance abuse, gambling or some other form of addiction. It is time to reach out for help. You are also solely out for extremes of pleasure, self-indulgence and gluttony. You also may not know which is the right direction to turn — there is a part of you that is comfortable in the current circumstances you are in; however, fear is holding you back from exploring new opportunities. This is the time to realize that you have come to a point in your life where you recognize your limitations and what can and cannot be fixed. Stop wavering and make a different choice. You have found it easier to walk away from problems than to confront them. You have created distractions, rather than deal with reality. Also, you are in denial about your financial resources. Reflect on whether you have done everything you could to help yourself out monetarily.
