Literary Tarot: Eight of Cups
Updated: Dec 6, 2020
“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this, too, was a gift.” - Mary Oliver
Eight of Cups - Walking away, letting go, transition, detachment, unknown journey, escape, withdrawal
The Eight of Cups signifies a loss or sense of emptiness. What used to serve, no longer does. It urges to detach, move on, and seek joy and fulfillment elsewhere. This is a gift: the opportunity to acknowledge what is no longer life-giving and to move toward that which is.
