Eight of Cups Tarot Card Meaning

Written and illustrated by Grace Duong

The traditional Rider Waite depiction of the Eight of Cups card features a man in a red outfit, walking away with his back turned towards a rough terrain of rocky mountains amidst a body of water. Eight cups lay stacked on top of each other towards the bottom of the card in the foreground, which the figure is walking away from. The person is shown leaving the cups behind and embarking on a journey or pilgrimage. The scene often takes place near water, and there may be a waning crescent moon in the sky. The moon is drawn with a forlorn face. There is a feeling of loss, disappointment, and avoidance of one’s issues in this card. The card represents a symbolic journey of leaving behind something emotionally unfulfilling or unsatisfying. It signifies a quest for deeper meaning, personal growth, and a pursuit of one’s true path. The person in the image is willingly abandoning a situation or emotional state that no longer serves them, choosing to explore new horizons in search of greater fulfillment.

In the Mystic Monday’s Tarot deck, the Eight of Cups card is depicted as a feminine figure who is naked, sitting along the edge of the pool, with her back turned to the viewer. She is contemplating the road she has taken in life so far and is wondering if she wants to dive deeper or pursue another path that is more in alignment with her emotions and desires. There are eight cups along the edge of the pool, going further into the distance. There is a setting sun in the background.

Comfort in material and physical needs aren’t quite cutting it anymore, and you’re looking for a deeper connection with your purpose in life. Constant striving and achievement leaves you running on empty, neglecting yourself in the process. You’re in the mood for introspection, discovering how to best implement your plans in nourishing ways. Appreciate your journey so far in this transition period.

General Eight of Cups Reversed Meaning

There are a lot of options in front of you and it’s hard to choose just one! The fear of missing out is keeping you stagnant, paralyzing you from moving forward with the options that you have. Weigh the pros and cons and make a decision. Decide which option is most emotionally fulfilling for you, and trust that the Universe will meet you at your point of action. You have a tendency to escape, the easiest way to deal with uncomfortable situations. Avoidance can lead to you walking aimlessly, eventually realizing that your lack of commitment is delaying your desire to find a place of belonging and acceptance. Even if that means walking away from what you currently have for a fresh start. Open your heart and commit to the love and intimacy that you deserve so that you are able to receive it.
