It is the abandonment of frivolous activities that once caused happiness but do not anymore. This card usually comes up in a spread when a major life change is going to be made soon, or when you have simply matured mentally as a person. You are abandoning old activities which are now of no consequence to you in favor of searching for a deeper truth that will lead to greater contentment with life overall.
When the eight of cups shows up in a spread in the love area, it usually means that your relationship has been unfulfilling. Ultimately, you are the only one that will be able to tell whether this describes you or not, but this generally means that it is time to abandon your relationships that have not been doing what they should for you and to search for a loved one that will return your same level of affection. It is possible that you felt your partner’s affection for you were superficial, or that you reached a higher level of maturity than them, but whenever this card shows up here, it means that it is time to get rid of them and search for someone else that will treat you the way that you really need to be treated. The most important part to stress is that they need to be on your level.
When this card appears as the fortune for your career, it means that you have probably been stagnant in one area of it for too long. Perhaps you feel like the work that you have spent so much time on is not really where you want to go in your life, or maybe you feel that you have not accomplished what you really wanted to with your work. Either way this card signifies that it is time to move on and find a new career that will be more fulfilling towards you. It takes a strong level of self awareness to know what you want. You must know that this is what you really want before you decide to do it.
Seeing this card in the area of money means that you have gained a new understanding of money in some way. You could have realized that money will not lead to happiness for you in your life, and are going to forsake it in favor of a more fulfilling life that does not involve the acquisition of money. On the other hand, if you are younger, then this means that you have probably finally learned the value of a dollar. This might come right before a time when you finally move out of the house to seek your own home and new employment.
Seeing the eight of cups in the area of a tarot spread that deals with health and happiness usually means that you are going on a mental quest to understand what makes you happy. In the near future, start to look for signs of things that once made you happy, and things that make you happy today. Have you noticed any differences? This is a sign of maturity.
Fortune telling with Tarot cards is simple that even if you don’t have any paranormal talent you still may open a portal and peep at the mysteries of future events. For example to predict your fortune for a day you have to pick up just one Tarot card from a deck and then interpret its meaning.
